Oscars: Final Nominee Predictions – 2015

imageOscars: Final Nominee Predictions – 2015

What a year it has been. The films of 2014 were unique which made the awards race a little tough to follow. In the end two films that came out earlier in 2014 will uncommonly be center-stage: “Boyhood” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”

“The Grand Budapest Hotel” is set to take home a bundle of technical awards while “Boyhood” is securely ready to take home the Best Picture/Director categories.

It was tough to find five to fit each category, with very few films “secure” in each one. But here is what we predict will get nominations in each category. Go to the Oscar page to see alternates.

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 film side of things we expect “Boyhood” and “Birdman” to get a lot of attention. “The Imitation Game,” “Selma,” “Gone Girl,” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” should make some appearances too.

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.
