    If you were given three (and only three) wishes for films and/or performances that you don’t think will get nominated, but are deeply and passionately hoping for, which films would you wish for, what would they be and why? 

    For me:

    Rose Byrne for Best Supporting Actress for Spy: Don’t make me a “sad Bulgarian clown!” 

    It Follows for Best Original Score: One of the best, and most inventive, scores of the year.

    Oscar Isaac for Best Supporting Actor for Ex Machina: Quite an enigmatic supporting turn. Plus, he’s very underrated and it would be awesome to see him finally get props for his work.

    How about you guys? Who would you wish for?

    Johann Johannsson‘s score for Sicario
    Roger Deakins‘ cinematography for Sicario
    Edward Lachman‘s cinematography for Carol

    These three are the greatest artistic achievements I’ve seen so far this year. 

    If I had one wish, overall, it’d be that The Lobster had a U.S. release date and was eligible.

    Best Actress in a Leading Role – Rooney Mara in Carol
    Because words mean something and I hate that we can just collectively decide to ignore category placements just because of a higher perceived chance. Maybe David Oyelowo could have gone supporting in Selma and gotten nominated! Or he could have won the supporting Emmy for Nightingale. It’s that general frustration, and that she deserves it — she keeps her cards close to her chest and doesn’t make herself easy to access but she slowly reveals the depths of real passion she’s built up for Carol that all started from a simple gaze, and it’s beautiful work. 

    Best Original Screenplay – Taxi by Jafar Panahi 
    Because though the action is confined to his car, different storylines from the passengers lend an insight into Iranian art and politics in a really sophisticated and entertaining way. That and he’s one of the most important working artists in the world today and the past three films he’s made under house arrest and with his filmmaking ban in Iran are a collossal testament to his determination and talent, and thoroughly deserves recognition (though it already won the Golden Bear at Berlin). 

    Best Sound Mixing – Love & Mercy and Son of Saul 
    Because this category (and its counterpart) so often just seem to go with the loudest options rather than the most interesting use of sound — a good example from a few years ago was Peter Strickland’s Berberian Sound Studio. It’s great in L&M because you hear the artistic process of a musical genius, building layer by layer in the depths of his complicated psyche. In SOS, the screams from the chamber are pretty shocking at first but disturbingly you become as numbed to it as the character feels in a way that cinema hasn’t really ever managed to convey with that topic.

    ^ Talking of Strickland I’d love The Duke of Burgundy to get a score nomination for Cat’s Eyes. Its use of clarinet and harpsichord is particularly memorable. But there’s no way it will with this snooty branch, it’s way too alternative. (I agree Berberian Sound Studio should have been a lock for Sound Editing.)

    My other two extremely unlikely Oscar wishes would be Roy Andersson as Best Director for A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (the most “auteurist” work of the year) and Ex Machina for Visual Effects – like Under the Skin, it doesn’t seek to wow audiences with the effects per se, but they are a vital part of the film’s narrative and aesthetic and are as much of an artistic achievement as great cinematography.

    Spy for Original Screenplay, really funny and the fact of they don’t make Susan succeed because she got lucky, they make her succeed due to having actual skill.

    Inside Out for Best Picture, I have it in my prediction for Best Picture but I can see it getting snubbed which is a shame. It’s my favourite film of the year so far and Pixar is due for a Best Picture award. They so many Best Picture worthy films and only 2 of them got nominated and that’s only because they had 10 slots to fill.

    Can’t think of a third wish at the moment.

    Oscar Isaac/Ex Machina are really shaping up to be the Scarlett Johannson/Under the Skin of 2015. Give it a rest!

    Leading roles are nominated in leading categories and supporting roles are nominated in supporting categories. NO CATEGORY FRAUDS THIS YEAR, PLEASE.

    Oh, and Charlott Rampling getting nominated and then winning. It would also be nice to see Blythe Danner nominated for I’ll See You in My Dreams in leading category and Malin Akerman for The Final Girls in supporting category but I’m being realistic here.
