My 2016 Oscar Nominations

I figure that, given the majority of the voting Academy is mature white men, that I should get to pick my own nominations. Sure, I could trust the Academy to do the ‘right’ thing, and maybe they will, but I just want to make sure that my feelings are clear. So…here are my personal picks for the top 5 categories.
