    Thanks again for getting the dvds. My parents and I did appreciate them greatly.

    I know that we are all over talking about the 2016 film year, but I have one questions for the AC staff. Looking back on 2016, if you had to choose three films that you believe would become classics, what would they be?

    Mine are 1) Moonlight 2) Arrival 3) La La Land

    Looking forward to another film year with Awards Circuit!

      I’d throw in Manchester By The Sea and say that all four have the potential of becoming classics. Even The Nice Guys could be a sort of cult classic
