At The Oscars (2017) we saw one of the most strange moments in the Academy Awards history when there was a mix-up announcing the Best Picture winner.

The protagonists of the night were La La Land (2016) and Moonlight (2016).

Two years after that, the directors of those movies, Damien Chazelle and Barry Jenkins had new pictures in contention again, but while both films won Oscars, they did not compete for Best Picture nor they had a chance to have a second Face-Off between them.

That is until now.

Which of the 2017 Oscars protagonists follow up films do you think is better Damien Chazelle's First Man or Barry Jenkin's If Beale Street Could Talk?

I rated both 7/10, but I probably find Beale Street more memorable due to the aesthetics and some of the performances.

In your last paragraph it should say Jenkins' instead of Jenkin's.
