Oscar: Final Nomination Predictions – 2016

spotlight-movie-2015-reviewsOscar: Final Nomination Predictions – 2016

Well here they are.

It’s been a very different year for award predictions, but thanks for baring with me. The nominations will be announced next week, and I feel very confident in my predictions.

At this stage, it definitely looks like “Spotlight” is our winner, however I’d watch out for a Director/Picture split. Potentially Miller could get away with murder here, overcoming a genre-bias Academy.

Here are our final predictions and stay tuned for more from us as the season continues.

The Screen Actors Guild will announce both their film and television nominees Wednesday morning.

Usually SAG voters eyeball the front-runners, however many of them miss the late films (Joy, The Hateful Eight, The Revenant), and they usually throw us a curveball or two.

See here are our quick predictions on what will go down Wednesday morning, once the nominees are announced we will scramble to finalize our Golden Globe predictions factoring in what we’ve seen this season.

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.
