Assuming I may not have time to watch every nominee I haven't seen, in what order should I prioritize: Brigsby Bear, Columbus, Logan Lucky, and Son of Joseph?

Columbus and The Son of Joseph are both in my Top 10 of 2017 at #5 and #7, respectively. I haven't seen Brigsby Bear, and Logan Lucky honestly surprises me as being a nominee for this list.

Wish you had let me know you wanted to see the Breadwinner -- GKIDS was being very liberal with screener requests. 

Huh. I emailed them twice and never heard back. If it's not too late, I'd still be happy to see it, if you have a connection.

Doubt it has enough time to generate traction, but I'll nominate Breathe, which deals with quality of life arguments and marriage in ways that I think are appropriate for this list. 

I'm noticing this far, *far* too late to make any difference to the votes now, but for what it's worth, I didn't care for this film's dim depiction of religion, nor, for admittedly personal reasons, did I care for its basically positive depiction of euthanasia.

When will the results be posted

I'm working on gathering the last of the blurbs from jury members, then the list will go up on IMAGE some time prior to the Oscars. Hopefully sooner than later!
