We’re getting closer. Now with the Golden Globe and SAG nominations out there, things are starting to clear up.
The only thing not really clear is “Star Wars” which we won’t know much about till midnight on the 16th. Still we are at a point where you can expect most of the nominees to look like what we have below.
So here are our current 2016 Oscar Predictions:
The Screen Actors Guild nominations should give us a better idea of what these categories should look like, but we’re posting our finals a day before they are announced this time.
We usually try to bring out our final predictions the day that ballots are due, we’re a little behind this time, but we think our predictions are really strong for this one.
Here are the Predictions:
Motion Picture – Drama
Bridge of Spies
Mad Max: Fury Road
The Hateful Eight
Straight Outta Compton
Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical
The Big Short
I’ll See You in My Dreams
Diary of a Teenage Girl
The Lady in the Van
Infinitely Polar Bear
This may be our second to last Golden Globe Predictions unless something significant happens.
The HFPA recently stated that both “The Martian” and “Joy” would be considered comedies. Other notable activities included rejecting Rooney Mara and Alicia Vikander’s placement as “Supporting Actresses.”
We have made all of these updates. We have also done the Television categories. You can keep watch here to see if anything changes between now and the week before the nominations are announced.
Motion Picture – Drama
The Hateful Eight
A lot of what happens in the pre-cursor awards will determine the outcome of the bigger ceremonies such as the Globes, SAG, Critics Choice, and the Oscars.
Before the end of the year we will have a couple of these. These predictions can be pretty bold cause many of these critics groups are fairly unpredictable.
We looked at the National Board of Review Award, the New York Film Critics Circle, the LA Film Critics Association, the Screen Actors Guild Nominees, and the Critics Choice Award Nominees.
We have updated our Film Predictions for the Golden Globes. We were going to do the television shows as well, but it seems like not much has changed there.

Big steps have been made by “Joy,” “Spotlight,” and “Room.” However, there are still many films to be seen. “I Saw the Light” gets pushed to 2016, making the “Musical/Comedy” categories even more obscure.

On September 20th the 2015 Primetime Emmy award ceremony will begin.
It’s been about three or four years since I started predicting the Emmys, and it’s honestly one of the most difficult ones to predict.
Last night the Creative Arts Emmys were announced for all of the extraordinarily talented people behind the cameras. These are the best of the best, winning during this golden age of television.
Along with the technical awards, guest acting winners were announced, animated program, and TV Movie. We had finalized our predictions for those last night and you can see who won and how we did below.
For the main categories, Drama Series, Comedy Series, etc. It’s an all-out-brawl this year. Should be a lot of fun.
And if you’ve been visiting often, you may have noticed our poll in the sidebar. For the categories we polled we listed the current standings beneath. Voting will continue, however, right up until 2 days before the ceremony. The poll was for people’s personal picks, not their predictions.

So many intriguing new Fall shows are about to start coming out, and before we know it, in December, we may be seeing some of them sneak their way into a couple Golden Globe nominations.
You have to kind of mirror the Emmys here, but the Golden Globes tend to take Television nominations in a different way. These predictions are real early, and predicting an “unseen” television show is twice as difficult as a movie.
We think that “Fargo,” “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” “Transparent” will all make welcome returns while newcomers such as “Empire” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” may break out. Meanwhile “American Horror Story: Hotel” will likely hold down many of the “Mini-Series and TV Movie” categories.
So here is our complete Television Predictions. We’ve also updated all of our Golden Globe movie predictions which can all be found here.
