So when you watch as many Oscar nominated movies as we do in such a short span some of them are not going to be your thing. And Nocturnal Animals were not out thing.
And since Michael Shannon is the only one nominated we weren’t exactly hooked from the beginning. So we sort of just had it on and did quizzes on Sporcle and judge where we were in the movie by Jake Gyllenhaal’s beard. There was a jump scare so bad that we had to do a Disney song quiz to get over it. We aced the quiz by the way.
Michael Shannon was good, but I don’t think he’ll win and I personally preferred Aaron Tayler-Johnson, since he was more memorable – and let’s be honest he was in the first part of the movie when I was still paying a little attention.
