cdn.indiewireOscars: The Nominees – 2015

We have the complete list of the 2015 Oscar nominations, ranked by contenders most likely to win. Also we wanted to post this so we could comment on each category individually to voice our just concerns!

Best Picture
Boyhood
The Imitation Game
Selma
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Birdman
The Theory of Everything
American Sniper
Whiplash

The only real surprise in Best Picture is the lack of “Gone Girl,” but it was already a bubble contender since people weren’t sure how many first place votes it would receive. “Boyhood” is easily winning this though.

The award season is underway and precursors are flooding in. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s chosen nominations will be announced on Thursday December 11th.

On the television side of things “True Detective,” “House of Cards,” and “Modern Family” should all easily show up. “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Wife,” “Downton Abbey,” “Fargo, ” “Orange is the New Black,” and “The Big Bang Theory” are all strong possibilities in multiple categories as well.

We have completely updated all of our film categories for our Golden Globe Predictions.

The HFPA thinks a little differently from the Academy. It’s not really a copy/paste situation. In the past few days we have had some momentum shifts, from the strong premiere of “Selma” at the AFI Fest to the strong presence of “The Imitation Game” at the Hollywood Film Awards.

Most of our Television categories haven’t really changed. We will have one more full updated before the nominations are announced on December 12th.

Oscar: Full Updated Predictions – November

2014CitizenfourSnowdenArtificialEyeOscar: Full Updated Predictions – November

We have fully updated all of our Oscar Predictions. Now including the categories: Original Song, Documentary Feature, and Foreign Feature.

With “Interstellar’s” reviews not quite being raves, it has been knocked down a few levels. The close we draw to the end of the year, the safer films like “Boyhood,” “The Imitation Game,” “Birdman,” and “The Theory of Everything” look.

There are still some movies to be seen. “Unbroken” has a lot of potential. Others would include “A Most Violent Year,” “The Gambler,” “Selma,” and “Into the Woods.”

So here is where we are right now. After the jump, we have our ranked listings for all of the contenders. Click the “More” links to expand on the category and see other potential contenders.
