Manchester by the Sea : Definitely deserves best picture

Definitely deserves best picture

This movie was easily #1 of 2016 for me.. I hope it wins Oscars for affleck and the writing apart from best picture. Really don't understand the hate it's getting on the message board

Re: Definitely deserves best picture

Maybe not my favorite of the year but I loved it! Does not deserve all the hate.

Re: Definitely deserves best picture

It can win snoozefest of the year.

That or most overrated film of the year.

Re: Definitely deserves best picture

It's a fine movie. I wouldn't be too surprised if it wins. The Academy used to love these type of movie. "Kramer vs.Kramer", best picture 1980; "Ordinary People", best picture 1981; "Terms of Endearment", best picture 1984.

No, the Academy still loves mediocre films like the ones you mentioned. The King's Speech, The Artist, Argo, and Spotlight are all good examples of this. Manchester should be fine.
