    • I’m working on it. I had a catalog of potential 2016 contenders and details about them that I spent hours on, it unfortunately got deleted. That’s life. Expect the remaining categories in the next few days.

      • I think that it will at least get one for the score and the production design, might not win as per usual but I think it could be competition

  1. This website is the only award website which still hasn’t recognised Fantastic beasts and where to find them. Every website predicts at least 2-3 except in here it is not considered? thoughts?

  2. I recommend replacing “Where is Anne Frank?” with “Wolfwalkers” in Animated Feature, the latter has far more credentials behind it (made by two times previous nominee Tomm Moore) and is being pushed by Apple, Inc. (because it’s going to be an Apple TV+ Original)
