This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

The Mexican actor, 37, was spotted getting cozy with British model-actress Suki Waterhouse, 25, in Tulum, Mexico, on Saturday as they packed on the Pda during a leisurely stroll. Holding hands and keeping a close eye on each other, the casual couple took in the natural sights as they sipped on drinks and enjoyed the tropical weather.
The pair kept their look low-key, with Waterhouse opting for a see-through purple top and black shorts while the actor sported a blue button-down shirt with a pair of long beige shorts. »

I couldn’t tell a well stitched dress from a beautifully designed gown, but that’s why the Costume Designers Guild are here. The group have looked over the year in television and film and nominated the cream of the crop when it comes to the attire we’ve seen on screens both big and small.
It’s a fascinating group of films that have been nominated together. The fashion forward comedy “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” rubs shoulders with “La La Land” and “Nocturnal Animals” (note: Tom Ford did not design the clothes for his own film, that task went to Arianne Phillips).

Jackie’s pink suit and gorgeous gowns and the primary-colored clothes of La La Land seem to have impressed the Costume Designers Guild. The designers divide up their awards into different categories, so while these two will likely go head-to-head at the Oscars, here they are nominated in the Excellence in Contemporary Film and Excellence in Period Film categories, respectively. La La Land is joined by Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, Captain Fantastic, Lion, and Nocturnal Animals. That last one is a Tom Ford project—did you really think it wouldn’t be represented? Meanwhile, in the period race, Jackie is going up against The Dressmaker, Florence Foster Jenkins, Hail, Caesar!, and Hidden Figures.
Fantasy films are also their own separate category, a group that contains one of the most intriguing nods for the garments of the stop-motion puppets from Kubo And The Two Strings. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this »

It seems like we haven’t talked this much about Mandy Moore since the early aughts when she was breaking our hearts in A Walk to Remember playing a (*15 Year Old Spoiler Alert*) high school student dying from Leukemia, and making us bust a move with pop sensations like “Candy.” But thanks to the new smash hit TV show This Is Us, Moore has made her return to the red carpet, most recently wowing at the Golden Globes in a very daring Naeem Khan gown with a deep, plunging neckline. And now she’s set to make another glamorous turn »

The awards, which honor the best films and actors who appeal to “a grownup state of mind,” feature winners come from a wide variety of films, with 13 movies represented among the 16 winners.
Kenneth Lonergan is also a notable winner, picking up both the Best Director and Best Screenwriter award for “Manchester By The Sea.” Lonergan was recently nominated two similar awards, Best Director and Best Screenplay, at the Golden Globes.
