BEST MOTION PICTURE – COMEDY/ MUSICAL: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
This charming comedy about growing old gracefully features a cast of top-shelf, grey-haired Brits including Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and Tom Wilkinson. As if each of these actors weren’t at the top of their game individually, their work together in this dramatic comedy about a handful of aging friends who move to a retirement hotel in India proves to be not only hilarious, but hugely relatable. Anybody who’s ever felt remotely old will find something familiar in Marigold Hotel, and those who haven’t will still undoubtedly find a sweet and often moving comedy. Chances of winning: Fairly slim.
