It’s awards season. Actually, the season kicked off back on October (2016) with the announcement of the Critics Choice Documentary Awards nominees (October 10, 2016). Awards season ends on February 26, 2017 with the biggest award of them all – The Academy Awards (Oscars).
There is still more than a month away from the Oscars, but there is already plenty of buzz about some front runners who might just walk away with the most prestigious award.
Some films who are front runners for Best Picture include;
Hell or High Water
La La Land
Manchester by the Sea
According to IndieWire, other contenders include;
How many of these films have YOU seen? Personally I’ve only seen Deadpool and Hell or High Water. I want to see La La Land and Noctural Animals.
Many of the film’s that could walk away with the Oscar for best picture are still playing locally (at least where I live). Moonlight, Lion, Fences, La La Land and Hidden Figures are currently playing in our local movie theater.
When we plan on going to the movies we always purchase our tickets online at Fandango. Not only does purchasing our tickets from Fandango help us to skip the lines, it also lets us see what seats are available and allows us to pick out the ideal seats (depending on the theater).
Once we purchase our tickets online I simply print them out and show them to the person at the theater who collects tickets. There is no need to wait online (unless you want something from the concession stand).
Fandango also has a companion site, FandangoNOW where you can purchase or rent movies and television shows – including some award nominated films and television shows. You can watch them online or download them to approved devices.
If you are looking for a great gift idea, Fandango and FandangoNOW gifts cards are a great option. The recipient can use them to enjoy current movies in their local movie theater, or they can rent or purchase their favorite films and television shows online.
For the first time, Fandango is offering gift cards good for award-worthy movies on the big screen (via Fandango) and on digital platforms (with FandangoNOW).
With awards season, Fandango has you covered for all your movie news and needs, from the big screen to your screen!
You can learn more about the latest movie news, nominated films, awards shows, movie news, trailers and more by visiting the Fandango Movie Awards page. I appreciate this page. It’s given me more information about the nominated films I didn’t know much about (like Fences and Moonlight). It’s a great resource for movie lovers.
You can also check out the Awards Season Gift Card, which can be found here. You can pick one up for yourself or grab a few for gifts (birthday, anniversary, Easter basket…).
