Who do you want to win? I do like to look at nominations for awards, in case anything I have particularly fallen in love with over the past 12 months gets a deserved nomination. In this case, not so much, but a couple of good ones though.

I need to watch La La Land in order to work out if it deserved its epic 14 nods.

Who do you want to win? Will you be watching? Waiting for all of the anti-Trump political speeches to come from the winners?
