filmlover's picks for the best of 2016!

Recommended Posts

Another year passed by, another chapter closed in the history books for cinema. 2016 was one of the best years ever at the movies for me: set a new personal record for most movies from a single year seen in theaters (70), saw a ton of quality films across different genres as possible. I didn't get around to seeing everything that I wanted to before the deadlines, but hey, can't win 'em all. To see the list of all the movies from 2016 that I saw, check below:

 

This year was tough for some of the categories (in particular, the acting ones) because there were some choices so good that it sucked to have to snub them. But with only a field of 5, there isn't room for everybody. Without further ado, here are my choices for the best in 2016!

Would you like to send these in as a BOFFY ballot? I'll take the categories you have, but you basically have most of it done! Just a few more categories! :)
