Another big set of victories for Moonlight. That film, along with Manchester by the Sea, are easily the critics darlings stateside, and both should do just fine at the Oscars, but the Oscars are not the critics. La La Land, I would say, is a critical darling as well, but a film that will probably be beloved by the Academy equally as it is by the critics. Watch out for Silence…
