cdn.indiewireOscars: The Nominees – 2015

We have the complete list of the 2015 Oscar nominations, ranked by contenders most likely to win. Also we wanted to post this so we could comment on each category individually to voice our just concerns!

Best Picture
Boyhood
The Imitation Game
Selma
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Birdman
The Theory of Everything
American Sniper
Whiplash

The only real surprise in Best Picture is the lack of “Gone Girl,” but it was already a bubble contender since people weren’t sure how many first place votes it would receive. “Boyhood” is easily winning this though.

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.

Most of our Television categories haven’t really changed. We will have one more full updated before the nominations are announced on December 12th.

Alright, so we’ve started the year off with a couple strong, successful films. “The Lego Movie” landed with a slew of powerful reviews along with the successful Wes Anderson film “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” Meanwhile we’ve had some strong independent titles like “Under the Skin” and “Locke” hit the review circuit. Also, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” has already climbed to the top of the annual box office, also presenting strong reviews.
