    Adapted Screenplay- Steve Jobs or Big Short.

    Original Screenplay – Spotlight or Hateful 8 or Inside Out.

    Supp Actress- Carol or Danish Girl or Ex Machine.

    Supp Actor- Creed or Bridge of Spies.

    Actress- Room or Brooklyn.

    Actor- Revenant or Trumbo.

    Director & Picture- a Mad Max/Martian split.

    Last one is a long shot I know,
    So if Spotlight gets Picture then Martian for Director with AS going to Steve Jobs.

    Basically it seems plausible that 8 different films can share the Top 8 Oscars.

    2012 was close but Argo got Pic/AS and Django got SA and OS. With 1 each for LoP, Lincoln, SLP and LM.

    Sorry my bad in the original post.

    I meant if Big Short gets Picture then Steve Jobs for Adapted Screenplay.

    And if Spotlight gets Picture then can either Inside Out or Hateful 8 take Original Screenplay?

    Picture: The Big Short
    Director: Ridley Scott – “The Martian
    Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio – “The Revenant

    Actress: Brie Larson – “Room
    Supporting Actor: Mark Rylance – “Bridge of Spies
    Supporting Actress: Rooney Mara – “Carol

    Original Screenplay: Tom McCarthy and co. – “Spotlight
    Adapted Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin – “Steve Jobs

    Director & Adapted Screenplay are probably pushing it, but 5/6 is very possible.

    I like that scenario, but what about best editing.  Whoever wins that one, usually wins a lot more, but could it be something like Mad Max which would really spread out the awards.

    I could see this happening with the scenario below –

    Picture – The Big Short
    Director – Mad Max: Fury Road or The Martian
    Actor – The Revenant
    Actress – Room
    Supporting Actor – Creed or Bridge of Spies
    Supporting Actress – Carol
    Original Screenplay – Spotlight
    Adapted Screenplay – Steve Jobs

    Great shout Shart, I forgot about editing.

    So is the following likely to happen?

    Scenario 1
    Picture Spotlight
    Director Martian
    Actor Revenant
    Actress Room
    S. Actor Bridge of Spies
    S. Actress Carol
    Adapted Big Short
    Original Inside Out/Hateful 8
    Editing Mad Max Fury Road

    Or

    Scenario 2

    Same as above except:

    Big Short Picture
    Spotlight Original
    Steve Jobs Adapted
    S. Actor Stallone (Possibly)

    Which scenario is more likely?

    Has this ever happened before that the love has been equally spread?

    I cant remember although 2012 wasnt far off.

    I really don’t see it happening, mainly because I think that Spotlight and The Big Short are really heavy frontrunner said for the Screenplay prizes, and one of them is likely taking BP. I just can’t rationalize Steve Jobs winning Adapted at this point.

    Wow, I ALMOST have that happening. 

    Picture: Spotlight
    Director: The Martian
    Actor: The Revenant
    Actress: Room (second place is Brooklyn even!)
    S. Actor: Bridge of Spies
    S. Actress: Carol
    O. Screenplay: Spotlight
    A. Screenplay: The Big Short 

    If McKay gets in at DGA then I will easily make The Big Short win best picture, and possibly director. In that case, the eight different winners won’t really be near happening.

    Quite a few years have the Oscars honouring a variety of films. I think we could use a trivia expert here, but I think the last time this has happened, sort of, is back in 1932 when Grand Hotel won Best Picture and nothing else.

    Actor: Charles Laughton, Henry 8

    Actress: Katherine Hepburn, Morning Glory

    Directing: Frank Lloyd, Calvacade

    Sound: A Farewell to Arms

    Screenplay Adapted: Little Women

    Production: Calvacade*

    Cinematography: Charles Bryant Lang, A Farewell to Arms

    Art Direction: Calvacade

    Looking at this I suppose it’s surprising that Grand Hotel won BP, with the tacit ‘win’ for Calvade.

    I don’t think it’s possible. It’s almost a rule that the BP winner has to also grab directing, writing or an acting award. Last time that didn’t happen was like in the 30’s.
