POLL: BEST FILM OF 2017 (6th Annual KT Reader’s Awards)


2017 wasn’t anywhere near the quality year we were spoiled with in 2016 at the movies, but it did have a number of gems.  So now it falls to the Killing Time Community to do their yearly duty and anoint one movie as the BEST FILM OF 2017.  I do my own yearly awards (The Renaissance Film Awards) just before the Oscars, so this is the readers’ pick; YOUR pick.  Will you follow the critics toward The Shape of Water, Dunkirk, or Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri?  Will a Star Wars film win for the third year in a row with the divisive yet financially successful The Last Jedi?  Or will you recognize a film the Academy denied like Beauty and the Beast, Blade Runner 2049, or Wonder Woman?

Sally Hawkins and Doug Jones in The Shape of Water

Here are how the 15 finalists for the award were chosen: I took the nine films the Academy nominated for Best Picture, added the next four highest ranked by my personal list, and then added the top two box office earners not covered by either previous category.  All year you tolerate (mostly politely) my opinions, but this is your award.  This is our most important poll of the year, so VOTE!  The winner will be announced on March 2, 2018 (Friday before Oscar), and will join the hallowed ranks of these past winners:
2012: The Dark Knight Rises 
2013: Gravity
2014: Guardians of the Galaxy 
2015: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
2016: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
2017: ?????????????????????????

PS – Forward this around or direct your fellow movie lovers to the Killing Time homepage (https://justkillingti.me) to cast their votes.  We want to get as many as possible for the biggest KT Community event of the year!

    1. It won the Comedy/Musical trophy at the Golden Globes, but that’s the only major title it’s taken so far. I think right now it’s sitting behind Three Billboards, Dunkirk and The Shape of Water in fourth, but it’s a long way until May 4th. I do think Laurie Metcalf will win for Supporting Actress.
