DAY TWO COMMENT
Opened with Sully which I really enjoyed much more than I expected to. Nice turn by Hanks. Maybe he will be in the Best Actor conversation.
Then Bright Lights which I also enjoyed. Very warm and entertaining. Highlight was during the and A when Debbie Reynolds phoned in to her son Todd Fisher and was able to speak briefly to those of us in the theater.
Then caught Barry Jenkins Moonlight. Moving with fine performances across the board. Naomie Harris could be in the Supporting Actress picture.
Ended the evening with Denis Villenieuve's Arrival and the Amy Adams tribute. Adams was a joy in the pre-show Q and A. It'll be interesting to see if Oscar voters warm to the SciFi story.
DAY THREE SCHEDULE (at least as it stands now)
Winners so far: La La Land and (surprise) Sully. Liking Arrival, Moonlight. Still not sold on Manchester.
