The brilliantly emotional and heartfelt ‘Manchester by the Sea’ directed and written by Kenneth Lonergan.

Best Picture

Won: ‘Moonlight’

Should have won: ‘Manchester by the Sea’

This film slowly crept its way into existence and slid its way into the Academy’s Best Picture nomination list. The charm of this film is how simple it is. Nothing was extra, there was nothing yelling at you, unlike in La La Land, which was practically on its knees for a Best Picture win. The beauty of this film is in how gently it presents itself. Kenneth Lonergan’s masterpiece featured stellar performances, a solid script, brilliant music, and a tender sense of intimacy unmatched this year.
