Well, another year is in the books. So before 2017 gets into full swing, lets look back at the best movies of 2016, in my opinion of course. Before we get started, make sure to check out this list’s opposite, the Top 10 Worst Movies of 2016.  Keep in mind, as always with lists like this, my original review and rating is only part of what goes into where each movie places.  The movie’s overall quality, entertainment value, how it holds up after more thought, its impact on me, and its rewatchability are all factors. I also haven’t seen every movie that came out, unfortunately. But you can check out my reviews for each movie I did see on this list by clicking on the title. Before we got to the Top 10, here are some honorable mentions that just missed the list:

Let’s start with the most important thing that occurred during the 2016 Oscars- I was 14/18 on my predictions.  That’s pretty strong if I do say so myself.  I got all of the major categories correct with the exception of best supporting actor (more on that later) and I don’t really feel bad about missing 3 technical awards.  Although now I’ve learned my lesson and should have just assumed Mad Max would win everything.

With the Academy Awards tonight, I am giving you guys my predictions for the winners.  I have separated them into 2 different categories: what I want to win and what I think will win, which are usually very different.  Before we get to it I am posting links to every Oscar nominated movie I have seen and reviewed in case you want to go back and check them out:
