Finally, the post that puts it all together! The films as a whole, what was best and favorite and least favorite.
We continue to move sideways towards the final awards, the big awards for the films as a whole. But first, little bits of the films get their awards, soundtrack and character.
I already put up the winning real life stories of 2017, now lets move on to where film and real life overlap, the promotions that try to drive people into the movies.
