I haven't done this in awhile and it's Oscars-related, so...

1) Do you try to see all the nominees for Best Picture each year before the Academy Awards show?

Yes, I do.  It's a tradition I've had since I was a teenager and took my first film class in high school.

2) How many of this year’s nine Best Picture nominees have you seen so far?

So far I've seen five of them.  I still need to see Moonlight, Lion, Fences and Hacksaw Ridge

3) Of those nominated films you’ve seen, which is your favorite?

Manchester by the Sea was really, really good, but really, really depressing.  I really loved La, La Land and the Little Bit and I go around singing music from it a lot.  That said, my favorite is Hidden Figures.  It was so good.  I loved every second of it and I think it deserves so much more recognition.

4) Is your favorite the same as the film you think is actually the “best picture”?

I think Hidden Figures is the best picture of the five movies that I've seen thus far.  it's possible that will change when I see the rest.  I don't know.

5) Which film do you think will win Best Picture?

Right now, I would say either Moonlight or La, La Land, depending on the mood of the Oscar voters.  They're really weird sometimes.
