Did The Academy Get It Right This Year? Cast Your Vote!
Do you think Moonlight was the best film of the year? Do you think Emma Stone should have won Best Actress for her performance in La La Land?
Every year, we host our own Movie Awards to determine if the Academy got it right. We use eight of the most popular Oscar categories and display all the movies from those eight categories. There are so many fantastic movies that you may not have never seen such as Hell or High Water or Fire at Sea, so come in and take a look! Once you’ve had a chance to watch all of the movies you’ve missed, come in and fill out our ballot located next to the display or visit isliplibrary.org to fill it out online. For Islip Library cardholders, completed ballots can be dropped off at the Reference desk in exchange for a special treat. Hurry, cast your vote soon - voting ends on June 30, 2017. So what will you be watching this weekend?
