My 21 favourite films released in 2016 (going by US release dates). A mediocre year for blockbusters (or at least ones not released by Disney animation, in full renaissance mode), but an extraordinary year for unconventional comedies, musicals, documentaries and world cinema.
A few follow-up awards:
Scene of the Year: The Birthday Party, Toni Erdmann
Character of the Year: Chiron, Moonlight
Chemistry of the Year: Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe, Swiss Army Man
Gives Me Hope for Humanity: Arrival
Holy Crap, Why are the Cameras Still Rolling?: Weiner
I Confess, I Haven’t Seen it Yet: Silence, Fire at Sea, American Honey, Paterson, Loving, Fences, OJ Made in America, 20th Century Women, The Neon Demon, Hidden FiguresRead less
