    Okay, here we go…

    • The Martian is not going to get a crazy ton amount of nominations.
    • Roger Deakins will not win for Cinematography.
    • Room will not get a bunch of nominations. Also no Jacob Tremblay in Supporting.
    • In the Heart of the Sea and Star Wars: The Force Awakens will shock everyone.
    • Someone surprising will turn up in one of the four acting choices on nomination morning.
    • Inside Out will get in Sound Editing.
    • Carol and The Danish Girl will not get a lot of broad appeal.
    • The Revenant is going to EXPLODE. Nominations everywhere including Production Design and Costume Design!
    • I’ll give you more when I think of them.

    Shouldn’t- Matt Damon, Suffragette, and Bridges of Spies for cinematography

    I think What We Do In The Shadows & Dope (Best Actor for Shamiek Moore!) should be taken seriously as great movies that deserve Awards recogniton for how unbelievably GREAT they were in what has so far been such a lackluster and overall “meh” year in terms of moviegoing IMO.

    Eddie Redmayne and Jennifer Lawrence shouldn’t be contenders. They should just disappear for couple of years and then come back.

    As for who should be contenders, I’ve already stated that and I’m gonna do it once again. Blythe Danner for I’ll See You in My Dreams. Absolutely exquisite perfromance. And Malin Akerman for The Final Girls. If you won’t shed a tear during BDE scene, you’re not a human.

    Shouldn’t Be:

    Johnny Depp in Black Mass: It’s a fine performance. Just. Fine. I don’t really understand where the uproar is coming from.
    Eddie Redmayne: It’s hard to swallow that Redmayne will possibly have 2 /acting noms while names like Tom Hardy, Jack O’Connell, Ben Mendelsohn, Joel Edgerton, and Kevin Bacon are still waiting on their first. 

    Should Be:

    Mad Max: Fury Road- Double digits!
    Rose Byrne for Best Supporting Actress in Spy- I might actually conduct a prayer circle for this to happen.
    Ex Machina for Best Original Screenplay- Inventive screenplay that borrows Frankenstein conventions to create a story about a battle of the sexes and the use of technology as well.
    It Follows for Best Original Score- Perhaps the most memorable horror score since Scream. 
    Matt Damon for Best Actor for The Martian- So far, he portrayed my favorite male character of the year with his Mark Watney. 
    Emily Blunt for Best Actress for Sicario- Very understated performance yet meticulously crafted in my opinion.

    At least we’re concentrating on THIS year, since going back even five years would make a novella -sized post.

    Half the people/films in the prediction center have no place being there. Who are these people still predicting Jake Gyllenhaal, Suffragette, Meryl, etc?

    Because the minute everyone’s Oscar predictions are the same is the minute I quit predicting awards.

    Jane Fonda doesn’t deserve to be nominated. She was just talking with strong conviction like she always does. I think she will get nominated unfortunately, though, and will be this year’s Laura Dern.

    Given the apparent influx of Best Actor contenders we may be in for (Samuel L. Jackson, Steve Carell, Will Smith, and Tom Courtenay, potentially), I really don’t see how Johnny Depp can be considered a contender for his nomination. The reviews for his film are more lukewarm than ecstatic, and it didn’t exactly set the box office on fire. Also, it’s clear that he’s not using this as an opportunity to reset his career, given how Pirates 5 and Alice in Wonderland 2 are right on the horizon, so it’s not like he has that narrative to fall back on. Even if he gets in at the Globes or BFCA, I just don’t see the incentive voters will have to reward him. GoldDerby still has him high in the odds, but I’m not sure if he’s even in the Top 10.

    Is Creed even a real contender?

    I meant it should be considered one.

    Fuck off for all of those who says Jennifer Lawrence. You haven’t seen the film for God sake. How could anyone judge a performance UNSEEN???? Like WTF.

    And no. I don’t care about your rude answers, because in the end I’m not the one talking shit about a performance I haven’t seen. Bye, Felicia!

    Sam Elliott in Grandma was extraordinary, bringing way more to the role than was written on the page.

    Jessica Chastain – just mentioned this in Supp. Actress – was superior in Crimson Peak than The Martian, but the latter is the better film and would be what got her a nom. 

    Brie Larson and Blythe Danner are neck-and-neck for the best performance I’ve seen by an actress in a leading role this year, but Danner has zero buzz. Really unfortunate. Someone like Glenn Close or even Streep would have all kinds of talk, so I’m not sure why it didn’t/hasn’t happened for Danner.

    The should-nots I feel strongest about:

    Room in anything other than Lead Actress and even then I think she should be fifth in line.
    Bridge of Spies in anything other than Screenplay
    The Martian in anything whatsoever, but especially in the field it’s most likely to be nominated: Visual Effects. No way near being on the level of its comparable titles Interstellar and Gravity. Should have been visually explosive. It wasn’t.
    Spotlight in Director. A lot of great things about this film, but its strengths are Editing and Screenplay. Everything else is perfectly fine, but not great.
    Michael Keaton in Supporting Actor. Ruffalo is the clear (and only) standout though I think Schreiber does the second best work in the ensemble.
    Johnny Depp in Lead Actor. I don’t think it will happen and it shouldn’t.
