In the Best Film category, awards season contenders like La La Land, Moonlight, and Manchester by the Sea, are joined by the likes of O.J.: Made in America, Sing Street, and The Nice Guys.

The Best Cinematographer, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress have expanded from five slots to six this year to accommodate for vote counts that were ties or close to ties. This has happened before in previous years, but this is the most it has happened in one single year. It goes to show that 2016 was a year filled to the brim with great films, and the acclaim is widespread.
