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:
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 moves are being made now that the majority of films have been seen to some extent. We are now including the categories Original Song, Foreign Film, and Documentary Film as well.
Everything is up to date as of November 1st.
Keep voting in our sidebar polls, there will be more as the season progresses. And, as always, keep checking back to our Oscar page for updated predictions.
Here they are:
The Hateful Eight
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.

The festivals aren’t quite over yet. The New York Film Festival will kick off with Robert Zemeckis’ “The Walk” on the 25th. Meanwhile, in this comforting interlude, we decided to go ahead and give our predictions a much needed makeover after these past revealing weeks.
What have we learned?
- “Spotlight” is the real deal
- Kaufman’s “Anomalisa” will rival “Inside Out.”
- “The Danish Girl” was good, but with some lukewarm response.
- “Beasts of No Nation” and “Steve Jobs” are strong contenders, but are not likely are winners.
- “The Hateful Eight” test screened to strong reactions, has an intermission “Gone with the Wind” style.
- “The Martian” sounds like a strong crowd-pleaser, should nab some tech attention.
- “Sicario” is a strong sleeper pick, as is “Son of Saul.”
- “Room,” after a strong couple of showings, will likely earn Brie Larson an actress nomination.
- Cate Blanchett will rival Cate Blanchett after two strong performances in both “Carol” and “Truth”
- “Suffragette,” “Freeheld,” “Our Brand is Crisis,” and “I Saw the Light.” all fall off quite a bit after low to mixed responses.

Oscars: Updated Predictions – July
With the new, stunning list of films premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, we thought it was about time we go through and update our Oscar Predictions.
Truthfully though, not much has changed. “The Revenant” still looks strong, The Weinstein Company still has “Carol” and “The Hateful Eight.” “Star Wars” seems like it could nail a lot of the technical categories along with Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies.”
Once TIFF and Telluride kick off we will have a whole new enlightenment on what is to come, but for now here are our best guesses:
And remember, keep visiting our Oscar page for frequent updates.
