Mel Gibson Nominated for Best Director

Posted January 24, 2017 by Eoin Friel in Blogs

Well, this is a pleasant; surprise. Upon looking over this year’s Oscar nominations the one that really stood out was seeing Mel Gibson for Hacksaw Ridge. I would so love it if he won but we all know the critical darling La La Land will win the majority with Moonlight winning a few others.

It’s nice to see Arrival getting some love; shame poor Amy Adams didn’t get a nod though.

I would love to see Hell or High Water win a few as it was one of my favourites from last year.

The list for Best Director is as follows:

Damien Chazelle, “La La Land”
Barry Jenkins, “Moonlight”
Denis Villeneuve, “Arrival”
Kenneth Lonergan, “Manchester by the Sea”
Mel Gibson, “Hacksaw Ridge”
