[UPDATE: 02/26/17, 11:15 p.m.: This year saw my worst prediction record for the Oscars, as I went 15/24 this year. The categories I got wrong were Picture, Actor in a Leading Role, Film Editing, Costume Design, Visual Effects, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Short Film (Live Action), Documentary (Short Subject). If I was younger, I’d be miffed with my latest result, but honestly, getting wrong results does make the ceremony more fun. Here’s to a better result next year!]
Here we go again.

Just like last year, this list comes a month late, so you can call me a straggler. Then again, just like last year, MediaBrewPub isn’t a full-time paid commitment, so you can call me a victim of circumstance. I’d love to publish these lists at year’s end, but since I’m not a member of a critics’ group or guild (which would grant me access to screenings and screeners), I spend my Januaries catching up on the movies that I either missed or need to check out – and even then, there are always a few that I fail to watch. I could postpone this for the sake of being comprehensive, but given that this is already February of 2017, now is the time to reflect on a year gone bye.
