Another very top heavy year for films in 2017. There were handful of films I loved and which will find their way into my all time rankings, but not a whole lot of depth.
Going with the theme of the times, it was also a terrific year for female actors, directors, screenwriters and even cinematographers. I had some difficulty with Best Actor, after a quite clear winner.
For those interested, my full write up for all the awards is here.
1. Blade Runner 2049
2. The Shape of Water
3. Paddington 2
4. Phantom Thread
5. Call Me by Your Name
1. Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water)
2. Paul Thomas Anderson (Phantom Thread)
