Oscar: 2016 Cannes Film Festival Winners and what will translate to Oscar

urn-newsml-dpa-com-20090101-160512-90-004988_201605131256_fullOscar: 2016 Cannes Film Festival Winners and what will translate to Oscar

Best Director: Graduation (Cristian Mungiu) and Personal Shopper (Olivier Assayas)
Best Actress: Jaclyn Jose, Ma Rosa
Best Actor: Shahab Hosseini, The Salesman

What will translate to Oscar?

We learned little from this years Cannes Film Festival, but you can make an assured assumption that the titles, actors, and directors listed above will not translate to Oscar.

Of all of them we will keep an eye on “I, Daniel Blake” and how it’s distributed, and may factor in Jose and Hosseini as dark horses as our Actor/Actress predictions narrow.

Oscars: Updated Predictions – April

So I finally updated these. A few things have cleared up, but even almost halfway into 2016 there are still many question marks.

If I had to make a super early call though, I’d say “The Birth of a Nation” is probably your Best Picture winner this year. “Silence,” “Billy Lynn” and other will give it a run though.

Keep checking our the Oscar page for the most updated predictions!

2016 Cannes Film Festival LineUp

neon-demon-elle-fanning-1 (1)2016 Cannes Film Festival LineUp

It’s that time of year again. Last year “Son of Saul” was screened at the Cannes Film Festival, though it lost the Palme d’Or to “Dheepan” the film went on to easily take home the Best Foreign Film Oscar.

If anything, for us award prognosticators, the Cannes Film Festival can narrow the field a bit. Last year we learned “Sicario,” and “Carol” would be big, but also learned Gus Van Sant’s “The Sea of Trees” would no longer be a factor.

What will happen this year? Well check out the lineup, then we’ll give a quick prediction: (more…)
