    I’ve now see almost everything in contention except Joy, Revenant,  Hateful 8, Concussion, Star Wars and I’m CRAZY for these pix and their stars/ directors, etc.

    Steve Jobs
    Trumbo
    Straight Outta Compton
    Son of Saul

    The Martian

    Room
    Inside Out

    I have a hunch that I’ve gonna LUV Joy and Hateful 8.

    Brooklyn (it’s one of the absolute best of the year) and believe it or not, Bridge of Spies! Charlotte Rampling and Big Willy Smith.

    SICARIO! Emily Blunt and DelToro deserve the nominations and its sound mixing and editing are phenomenal.

    Being a brazillian, I really want THE SECOND MOTHER to be nominated for FOREIGN MOVIE because it is really great, but I dont know how it plays to a person that it is not used to a society where maids are almost slaves.

    I would also love if Charlotte Rampling and Lily Tomlim to be nominated for heir respective performances.

    Southpaw was a avarage movie a best and forgettable at worse, but Gylenhaal gives a complex performance and I woundnt be sad if the academy tried to make up for last year’s snub.

    Being a 007 and Star Wars fan, I hope Spectre and Force Awakens do well (havent watched neither). I am sure it will be hard to Spectre gains as much traction as Skyfall some years ago, but I still hope it to pick some nominations. 

    My favorites movies have no chances. The academy would never reconize Ex Machina, The Lobster and Mission Impossible 5 (which really is a great movie, better than Mad Max)

    And a movie that it has a good buzz and I hope it doesnt loses it is Youth, one of the best of the year. Caine, Keitel and Fonda deserve nominations so does its cinematography and screenplay.

    But I am more strongly rooting against some movies. I dont get what was special about Broklyn. It was sweet little movie with almost no conflicts and nothing really standed out for me, not evan Ronan and Walters that for me, are far from their best work. Also, I dont think Maggie Smith deserves a nomination for her playing usual self in that overrated movie. As much as I liked The Martian, Matt Damon doesnt deserve a nomination. Yes, it is good work from the actor, but I wouldnt place it before Caine, Hanks or other battling for the 5th spot (and for those who think that this is his best wok in a while, you havent seen “Behind the Candelabra). And last, but not least, I really hope that Black Mass doesnt get a nomination for that awful makeup job that ruined the movie for me. Seriourly, I couldnt buy Depp because of how distracting his eyes were.

    My favorite movies this year so far are all pretty much longshots besides one: 
    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Inside Out (the only one with a real shot), The End of the Tour, 99 Homes, and The Diary of a Teenage Girl.

    But I’m definitely rooting for Lily Tomlin, and yeah I’ll be a hypocrite with my “don’t root for them until you see them” rule but I would love Diane Ladd to be back in the spotlight. Just deserves more love than she gets. Samuel L Jackson, Jeff Daniels, Jason Segel, Harvey Kietel all sound like a more exciting bunch than the current Supporting Actor frontrunners so I would love to see that party together. Alicia Vikander for anything she’s done this year I just want her to be pushed into stardom with tons of TV spots promoting her charming self.

    I’ve liked all the contenders I’ve seen, so I’m rooting for the ones that aren’t contenders: Fury Road, Ex Machina, and Inside Out. I’m also rooting for Star Wars to suceed and somehow make its way into the race, and for Creed to be a surprise contender as well.

    Cate Blanchett and “Carol” by extension… This woman needs an Oscar for all the brilliance in 2015.

    Jane Fonda for Youth, obviously. A brilliant ball of fire performance by a legend.

    I would love to see Maggie Smith get her first nomination since 2001 and it would be amazing if she made her way to her 3rd Oscar and even more exemplified her legend status. Filmwise I would love to see some love for Spy and Suffragette, both brilliant surprises.

    I am hopeful that Jennifer Jason Leigh who has long been denied a nomination for a number of fine films will be a first time nominee this year.

    Based on what I’ve seen:

    Inside Out
    Beasts of No Nation (Abraham Attah is killer in this)
    Tom Hardy in Legend (wish he could get lead & supporting nods for this)
    The Martian
    Rachel Weisz & Michael Caine – Youth

    On paper films I will probably end up backing:

    Carol – Blanchett especially
    Larson in Room
    Maggie Smith
    Fassbender in Steve Jobs
    Redmayne & Vikander in Danish Girl

    I’m gonna become even more obnoxious than I already am for my queen Charlotte Rampling.
