Premature Oscar Predictions

I know, I know. Probably should have done this before starting to review them movies – my review for Joy (and the 5th Wave even though it’s not nominated but I watched it last Wednesday) will be up soon as soon as I’m in the mood to edit those properly. So here are the premature predictions:

  • Best Picture – The Revenant/Spotlight
  • Best Original Screenplay – Spotlight/Inside Out
  • Best Adapted Screenplay – The Big Short/The Martian
  • Best Director – George Miller/Tom McCarthy
  • Best Actor – Leo/DiCaprio
  • Best Actress – Brie Larson/Cate Blanchett
  • Best Supporting Actor – Sylvester Stallone/Christian Bale
  • Best Supporting Actress – Alicia Vikander/Kate Winslet
  • Best Cinematographer – Emmanuel Lubezki/Emmanuel Lubezki
  • Best Animated Feature – Inside Out/Anomalisa
  • Best Film Editing – The Big Short/Spotlight
  • Best Production Design – The Revenant/Mad Max
  • Best Costume Design – Carol/Mad Max
  • Best Makeup and Hairstyling – Mad Max/The Revenant
  • Best Original Score – The Hateful Eight/Star Wars
  • Best Original Song – Lady Gaga/Sam Smith
  • Best Sound Mixing and Editing – The Revenant/Star Wars
  • Best Visual Effects – Star Wars/Mad Max

Side note: These predictions were made by particularly snippy people, specifically one nth-level nerd who has been predicting Oscar wins since 2010 and so far has reached a 89-90% accuracy – not including the documentary film category.
