The guild nominations are coming at us fast and furious now. I don’t know whether this clarifies anything or not. But this shot of Casey Affleck and the beautiful town in winter that is Manchester by the Sea really does make it look sumptuous.
So more nominations, more confusion. But again, no “Silence” anywhere. Guess we can scratch that one off our lists.
