2017 Oscar Predictions: The "Goodbye 'Billy Lynn' Edition"

I usually update these every few weeks or whenever something happens, such as last week's disappointing NYFF screening of Ang Lee's "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk." (HERE) Also Scorsese's "Silence" actually being confirmed for release has it now as a contender (HERE). I took off "Patriot's Day" after the "America rah rah" trailer premiered last week (HERE).
