Film Fallout Podcast #46 – The Film Debates of 2016

Hail, Caesar!
(Hail, Caesar!, Universal Pictures)

That’s a wrap folks! We can now forget about 2016 and move onto 2017. Last week we did our podcast on the best television of 2016, but this week, Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan debate the films of 2016. From best actor or actress to the best moments of the year, we go through it all. Below you can find who we decided as our nominees and winners, but listen to the podcast below if you’d like to hear how we got there. This is always a fun time!
