    1. I’m working on it. I had a catalog of potential 2016 contenders and details about them that I spent hours on, it unfortunately got deleted. That’s life. Expect the remaining categories in the next few days.

      1. I think that it will at least get one for the score and the production design, might not win as per usual but I think it could be competition

  1. This website is the only award website which still hasn’t recognised Fantastic beasts and where to find them. Every website predicts at least 2-3 except in here it is not considered? thoughts?
