The best movie of the year is Captain Fantastic. The movie also boasts best direction, and best script.
The best visual effects can be found in Deadpool, a movie that also boasts best action direction and humor. The best sound can be found in Arrival, one used to represent alien verbal communication.
My favorite character is Black Panther (Captain America: Civil War), and runner-up is Leslie Jones in Ghostbusters. The best performance is by Simon Helberg in Florence Foster Jenkins, while the best character design is that of the Hollows of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
