Thought I'd post an update given that I have seen a number of films that have impacted on my selections thus far. I am looking forward to Manchester by the Sea, La La Land (let's face it, it can only be better than Whiplash) and Jackie. Nothing much else likely to attract Academy attention has zero interest from me. And the day my local video shop finally closes shop will be the year I stop seeing everything nominated by the Academy.

Best Film

1. Elle
2. A Quiet Passion
3. The Bacchus Lady
4. The Death of Louis XIV
5. Paterson

Best Director

1. Paul Verhoeven, Elle
2. Terence Davies, A Quiet Passion
3. Je-yong Lee, The Bacchus Lady
4. Jim Jarmusch, Paterson
5. Albert Sera, The Death of Louis XIV

Best Actor

1. Adam Driver, Paterson
2. Kyan Khojandi, Rosalie Blum
3. Peter Simonischek, Toni Erdmann
4. Dave Johns, I, Daniel Blake
5. Ethan Hawke, Born to Be Blue


Best Actress

1. Yeo-jeong Yoon, The Bacchus Lady
2. Sandra Huller, Toni Erdmann
3. Cynthia Nixon, A Quiet Passion
4. Isabelle Huppert, Elle
5. Lea van Acken, The Diary of Anne Frank

Best Supporting Actor*

1. Dong-seok Ma, Train to Busan
2. Jeff Bridges, Hell or High Water
3. Jonas Bloquet, Elle
4. Keith Carradine, A Quiet Passion
5. Ben Foster, Hell or High Water

Best Supporting Actress

1. Golshifteh Farahani, Paterson
2. Tatiana Lekel, Sieranevada
3. Catherine Bailey, A Quiet Passion
4. Stella Kunkat, The Diary of Anne Frank
5. Martina Gedeck, The Diary of Anne Frank

*Bill Nighy all but steals Lone Scherfig's Their Finest, easily her best film since An Education. He would be top of my list for 2016 supporting actors but it looks like it won't qualify until 2017 as that is when it appears to be being released worldwide.

Yeah, it's looking like a weak year again for Supporting Actor. Though I forgot all about Dong-seok Ma in Train to Busan who all but steals the film from everyone else, including the rampaging living dead.

Jonas Bloquet is the only real stand-out male supporting ensemble in Elle as Isabelle Huppert's truly dim-witted son. It's not an easy roll to play and he pulls it off beautifully with material that really should not work but miraculously does. That Elle is so openly disdain of him doesn't hurt the poor fellow.

I don't think Huppert will get nominated for Elle for a number of reasons. The material for one but more so because there is probably an oversupply of English language actresses in roles that will simply appeal to them more. Huppert's only hope is to swoop the critics awards for Elle and the equally deserving Things to Come. She is really going to need that sort of traction to make it.

But I'm balled over by just how great 2016 has been so far this year but must admit that very little due out for the remainder of the year (Manchester by the Sea being the exception) appeals to me. The Venice Film Festival line-up looks particularly dire. Even if I don't seen another good film from 2016 it has already proven to be a much better year than 2015.

So I'm posting my best of year list (very) early and will do an update sometime early next year. If anything it will be interesting to see how much or little it changes:

Best Film

1. Elle
2. The Bacchus Lady
3. The Death of Louis XIV
4. Paterson
5. Toni Erdmann

Best Director

1. Paul Verhoeven, Elle
2. Je-yong Lee, The Bacchus Lady
3. Jim Jarmusch, Paterson
4. Albert Sera, The Death of Louis XIV
5. Maren Ade, Toni Erdmann

Best Actor

1. Adam Driver, Paterson
2. Kyan Khojandi, Rosalie Blum
3. Peter Simonischek, Toni Erdmann
4. Jean-Pierre Leaud, The Death of Louis XIV
5. Gerard Depardieu, Saint Amour

Best Actress

1. Yeo-jeong Yoon, The Bacchus Lady
2. Sandra Huller, Toni Erdmann
3. Isabelle Huppert, Elle
4. Sonia Braga, Aquarius
5. Sandrine Kiberlain, Being 17

Another extremely strong year for actresses with near misses including Kate Beckinsale in Love & Friendship, Isabelle Huppert in Things to Come, Noemie Lvovsky in Rosalie Blum, Michalina Olszanska in I, Olga Hepnarova & Kristen Stewart in Personal Shopper.

Best Supporting Actor

1. Jonas Bloquet, Elle
2. Charles Berling, Elle
3. Laurent Lafitte, Elle
4. Andre Marcon, Things to Come
5. Christian Berkel, Elle

Best Supporting Actress

1. Golshifteh Farahani, Paterson
2. Tatiana Lekel, Sieranevada
3. Chloe Sevigny, Love & Friendship
4. Judith Magre, Elle
5. Yolande Moreau, The Childhood of a Leader


I see you've nominated most of the actors from Elle. Just hope the Academy recognises Huppert at least.
