    Couldn’t find a thread on this subject –

    Here are the twelve directors who imo are vying for these awards, and for critics prizes:

    Lenny Abrahamson for Room
    Danny Boyle for Steve Jobs
    Ryan Coogler for Creed
    John Crowley for Brooklyn
    Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu for The Revenant
    Todd Haynes for Carol
    Tom Hooper for The Danish Girl
    Tom McCarthy for Spotlight
    David O. Russell for Joy
    Ridley Scott for The Martian
    Steven Spielberg for Bridge Of Spies
    Quentin Tarantino for The Hateful Eight

    You may think that I have left out someone who will def. get a nomination for Best Director that I haven’t included; this is my subjective list. I have left out a few names that are highly regarded because imo they aren’t really in contention this year (disagreements are expected!)

    Currently, I am predicting Abrahamson, Crowley, Inarritu, McCarthy and Scott for Oscar nominations. I think Brooklyn is much better liked than Gold Derbyites realize. I am also currently thinking that Joy is being oversold as a frontrunner and is going to run out of steam (this is just a hunch, and is really based on my own dislike of the trailer). I think these five films that these five directors made will appeal the most to the mostly white male director’s branch of the academy. The Golden Globes nad other critics organizations think differently and might make very different choices. The DGA and Oscars are always at least 4 out of 5 the same (are there any years when this hasn’t been the case? I don’t see this as being one of them) and often it’s five out of five.

    My own personal five I hope get the Oscar nominations would be Lenny Abrahamson, Danny Boyle, John Crowley, Todd Haynes, Tom Hooper, and Tom McCarthy (I’m aware that’s six – I’m cheating!)

    I would like to read your opinions without snarking about mine! It’s O.K. to have different opinions; we have different tastes and personalities – that’s life!

    Glad you’re also saying Crowley. Everybody LOVES Brooklyn!

    So Sarah Gavron and Angelina Jolie are the two women with at least a million-to-one shot of being nominated this year?

    Who am I forgetting?

    I think you can break this category down into slots that represent the different segments of the directors branch by what they’ve gone for historically. Tom McCarthy seems like the only lock for me leaving four slots (asterisks indicate my guess):

    Auteur vote – Haynes* vs. Nemes

    Indie vote – Abrahamson vs. Crowley*

    Late release – Iñárritu* vs. Russell vs. Tarantino (with these if they really go for one of the other ones I think they can drop the indie slot)
    Populist vote – Abrams vs. Scott*

    I don’t think Boyle has much of a chance. He isn’t going to be top 5 (or even 10) over the others listed and the ones left out like Nemes, Miller and Abrams.
