It seems crazy to leave out Life Of Pi here, but I have a feeling that the Writers Branch might feel the film is really more of a visual feast than a scripted one. I also feel like the writers are more likely to acknowledge the work of Perks and Beasts, and I’ll be most thankful if they reward both!
