We’re all massive film lovers at The Golf Tavern so we’re really excited to be watching Hollywood’s biggest awards ceremony live in the pub. To get in the mood we’ve put together a little list of our favourite nominations.
LA LA LAND, nominated for EVERYTHING.
If you’re a fan of musicals, and clearly enough people are, then you’re bound to have seen this lavish production already. One of the few films in recent years to reward a viewing on the silver screen, without including CGI monsters, it’s cast showed yet another side to an already accomplished group. Let’s hope this has as much success as that black and white silent movie about a dog did a few years back!
ZOOTOPIA, nominated for ANIMATED FEATURE FILM.
It seems that despite Pixar dealing solely in animation they don’t just make kids films! Yet another example of a film full of colourful, lovable characters for the young and complex political satire for adults, we all enjoyed this immensely.
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, nominated for VISUAL EFFECTS.
It’s likely that there won’t be a visual effects category without a Star Wars film in it for the next few years, but this entry is well deserved. To give the film it’s classic feel the crew shot all the live action through vintage Panavision 70mm lenses attached to pretty much the most modern camera they could get their hands on. The payoff from this marriage of old and new is there for all to see.
