When are you gonna get around to posting your 2016 predictions, huh?

Or rather, I mean, thanks for all the great coverage, giving us a place to geek out, looking forward to the return of the smackdown and HMWYBS, and happy new year!

A decent film year! Two actresses I've adored for a couple years now (Larson since United States of Tara, Vikander since Anna Karenina) both won Oscars. Can't wait to see what's in store for them in 2016 and excited for the next film year as a whole.

Nathaniel, just wanted to extend my thanks for leading us on this journey. I visit this site hourly. You're amazing!

Thanks Nathaniel and everyone at Team Experience -- the post-Oscars coverage this year has been deeply engaged and I find myself jumping in even more than usual. Thanks for the chance for the extended conversation. And to the rest of you commenters, too...I love your endless awards-geekery.

I'll take a box of Samoas, please.

It's been a pleasure to wade through such a thorough and varied wrap up of all things Oscar related. Thank you and thanks to your team here at TFE.& and all those witty commentators.
I love the boundless creativity you bring to Oscar coverage each year.

I'll pass on the Girl Guide cookies, I will stick to my Rich Tea Biscuits. (naturally)

Once again, thank you for this wonderful site and its incredible coverage on the Oscars.
Cannot wait for next year's race already!
I've never eaten one of those scout cookies..

I already feel nostalgic but hopefully 2016 will be even better . Thanks Nathaniel.

I chime in with all the thank yous to you and the awesome TFE team for all the great posts! This is the only side I go for oscar coverage because I get everything I need - and so much more.

That picture is pure joy. Except for the over-abundance of CAROL-centered posts, this has been great awards season at TFE, esp coverage of indie and foreign films. Thanks to all!

Re cookies--FYI, in different parts of the US, they're named different things. In my neighborhood, from the top, Caramel Delites, Savannahs, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Shortbreads. All pretty disgusting, except for Thin Mints.

Peanut Butter.



There is no substitute.

Thank you for all of the hard work you and all of your team do. It is very very much appreciated!

March 4, 2016 | Unregistered Commenterforever1267

Yep, this is the only real Oscar-y/movie-centered site I visit on a daily basis. Thanks for all your hard work and insightful writing!

It's Samoas all the way.

Thank you, Nathaniel, for creating a cinematic oasis in the Internet wasteland. Also, thanks for posting this marvelous pic, I had seen it before and have been looking for it on Google and couldn't find it LOL.
