The word “Spielbergian” riddles the reviews of every Steven Spielberg film that has come out, especially in recent history. Reading the reactions to his new film, “Bridge of Spies,” there were a lot of accolades, but there was a lot along the lines of – “What we’ve come to expect from Spielberg.”
From the trailer it’s easy to see that “Bridge of Spies” has some strong production design and cinematography. With Kaminski behind the lens, Stockhausen behind the set blueprints, and Newman conducting the score; “Bridge of Spies” rose through our award-prediction ranks.
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.
The Hateful Eight
The Danish Girl
Beasts of No Nation
“Carol,” “MacBeth,” “Inside Out,” “Sicario,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” are just some of the titles that had a strong reaction at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
Since last time (mid-April) a lot has changed. Still, there are a ton of potentially strong films that should show up on the festival circuit this fall. We still feel strongly about “The Revenant,” “Steve Jobs,” “The Danish Girl,” and “The Hateful Eight” as well.
So much is going on in the world of film right now. Many potential award candidates have wrapped production, have had test screenings, and some will be premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival which starts Wednesday May 13th.
After an impressive showing at Cinemacon, we have our eyes on Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s “The Revenant.” On the comedy side we are really paying attention to John Wells’ “Adam Jones” and Jean-Marc Vallée’s “Demolition.” You can’t really resist Meryl Streep as a rocker in “Ricki and the Flash” either. Probably the only real lock here.
So here are all our pre-Cannes predictions. We will likely modify the Oscar predictions right after Cannes has concluded and the Golden Globes predictions will follow.
The Sea of Trees
In the Heart of the Sea

Oscars: Updated Predictions – March
We have updated all of our Oscar Predictions. This season is already starting to move fast with many new films thrown into the mix, while others are being pushed to 2016.
In the coming months things will start to become more clean, but for now here are our best guesses for the 2016 Oscars, keep in mind you can keep watch for updates on our Oscar page.
The Hateful Eight
The Danish Girl
Bridge of Spies
Wow. There are a lot of great film to look forward to next year. Quentin Tarantino, Steven Spielberg, David O. Russell, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Tom Hooper, Stephen Frears, Joel/Ethan Coen, Martin Scorsese, Werner Herzog, Gus van Sant, Terrence Malick, and Ridley Scott all have films in the mix.
The big story though is the release of a 40 year-old film written/directed by Orson Welles. So we could potentially have a strong line-up of contenders.
Again, this early on most of these predictions are guided by the talent attached to the project (both on and off camera), the potential release dates, and the distribution. Because it is so early we only have Best Picture, Directors, and the acting categories predicted. Take from these what you can to make your own predictions as well!
