This has probably been the most controversial acting category at the Oscars in recent years. Due to studios putting the actresses forward in the supporting role rather than the leading role. That does appear to be something that has happened again this year. Although we then also get a mix of performances with very limited screen time so I really do think that this is a category that needs to be sorted out!
Don’t forget to let me know who you would like to win! And who you think will win, as that might not be the same!
Next up in the Oscar preview is looking at the performances which have been nominated for Best Supporting Actor. This race has heated up a little bit over the past few weeks after everyone thought it was a clear run for Ali.
Remind yourself of the nominees and don’t forget to say who you want to win!
This year nine films have been given the honour of being nominated for Best Picture. I managed to catch most of them pretty early thanks to Cineworld having so many Unlimited preview screenings which certainly was a bonus! Not forgetting to mention that my number one film from 2016 is amongst the nominees as well!
It is time to have another look at each of the films that have been nominated and I will let you know what I want to win, what I think will win and what I think has an outside chance of taking home the Oscar!

I have a confession to make I missed my blog-versary marking the 8th year since I started Let’s Go To The Movies.
Which was the 9th February 2009!
It has been a pretty incredible adventure so far, here is to many more years in the film and theatre blogging world!
Thank you to everyone who reads, likes, comments and shares. Both on the blog and via Twitter!
It’s Oscars week, plenty of build up and related posts coming on Let’s Go To The Movies so let’s kick it off with the haunting City of Stars!
Troy Maxson is a working class African-American trying to provide for his families in the 1950s as well as battling his demons of a life he missed out on.
In a city which hails greeting card writers like movie stars everything falls apart for Ray Wentworth who was a very successful Romance writer. Not that you would really be able to guess that when you see how cynical he really is.
Everyone at the moment is apparently in love with Christian Grey again. You know that billionaire who thrives off abusing women with pain in “sex” punishments to make himself feel better.
In Fifty Shades Darker he even calls himself a sadist. He’s controlling, manipulative and suffocating. Telling you that you can’t do something and wanting you just for his own. The latter of that would or could be nice I guess but not in the way it is portrayed through his character. Does this therefore risk our ideas of love and relationships to change?
Give me Robert in Bridges of Madison County standing in the rain any day over Christian Grey and his “playroom” any day!
