I overall really enjoyed all of the films nominated this year, even if I enjoyed some much more than others. There were some pretty major snubs such as Amy Adams for Best Actress in Arrival, Annette Benning and Greta Gerwig in 20th Century Women for Actress and Supporting Actress, Jake Gyllenhaal for Nocturnal Animals, Taraji P. Henson for Hidden Figures. As far as each category goes, whoever wins Best Actor I will be satisfied with, because I really enjoyed each actor in the roles and all of them deserve it. The same goes for Best Director.
