    What are the biggest prediction regrets you have after seeing the nominations this morning? Did you make any last minute changes that you now realize you shouldn’t have? Should you have trusted your gut instead of following the crowd? Or did your predictions get a little TOO out there and you should have listened to the consensus a little more closely?

    I gave AMPAS voters the benefit of the doubt when it came to good taste.

    Overestimating Sicario, while omitting it in Score. Not putting in Tom Hardy. Underestimating Room in Best Picture. Also, not putting in Charlotte Rampling! I should’ve just gone with her, but I thought the BAFTA snub was difficult to ignore.

    It’s mostly things I had that I took out at the last minute, like Embrace of the Serpent and A War in Foreign Language, Winter on Fire in Documentary, Star Wars in Film Editing, and Claude Lanzmann in Doc Short.

    Taking Jennifer Lawrence out because I fell for the Globe/BAFTA lead placement of Vikander. I had all 5 Best Actress nominees for ages before that.

    Putting one of my 200-point bets on my 2/5 predictions for Score instead of my 5/5 predictions for Foreign Language Film.

    Ditching The Revenant for Mr. Holmes in Makeup.

    Not having the guts to predict Ex Machina in Visual Effects. I wish I could say I’d called it.

    Replacing Will Smith with Matt Damon at the last minute, then thinking it over and reverting the spot back to Will Smith.

    Last minute changes to 5/5 categories Actress, Supporting Actor, Actress, Cinematography, and Costume Design that made them not 5/5. I don’t want to do the math but in my mind I will always hate myself for this because if I hadn’t made those changes I would have actually won the whole thing.

    Also for some reason the site removed one of my 200 bets (should have double checked) and I really should have put my bets on the short categories which I destroyed but I basically picked them randomly so I didn’t have much hope (silly me).

    Stubbornly holding onto Kristen Stewart in Supporting Actress, even when I knew to go with McAdams. Also, taking out McKay for Abrahamson and then taking him out for Speilberg. Also, putting in Carrell over Damon late last night. Don’t know what I was thinking.

    With the actors, buying into the “Spotlight” ensemble problem and Alicia’s chances of being nominated twice.

    For the techs, switching out “The 100 Year-Old Man” for “Black Mass”.
