    Will they be daring again this year? The only time in the past 20 years that LAFCA correctly predicted the Oscar for Best Picture was The Hurt Locker in 2009. Recent winners: “Boyhood” (2014), “Gravity” and “Her” (2013), “Amour” (2012) and “The Descendants” (2011). They often like to go their own way in the acting races, too, as they did last year by giving Tom Hardy the Best Actor prize for “Locke” or Yoon Jeong-hee (“Poetry,” Best Actress of 2011). And they love ties – they have a lot of those.

    I have a feeling they’ll be adventurous. For Best Picture, either Mad Max, Anomalisa, Room, or Inside Out. Also, for Best Actress, I’m predicting Brie Larson will take it. But if not her, then Charlize Theron, or Regina Case since they love foreign performances, or Charlotte Rampling.

    Los Angeles likes to pick a foreign actress or unlikely non-leading choice for Best Actress. I will say either Danner or Rampling.

    I honestly have no idea, but I think best actress might be between Rooney and Nina Hoss in Phoenix (still one of the most critically beloved releases this year).

    I think they will go with Charlize Theron for best actress. They always go their own way every year, and Mad Max was beloved by those critics.

    When does LAFCA announce? During the weekend?

    Some of this year’s contenders have already been rewarded by LAFCA:
    – Alejandro González Iñárritu: “Birdman” won Cinematography and Keaton & Norton were runner-ups in their respective categories. 
    – Cate Blanchett won for “Blue Jasmine” and was runner-up in 2004 in supporting actress
    – Paolo Sorrentino won for “The Great Beauty” in Foreign Film.
    – Jennifer Lawrence won for “Silver Linings Playbook” and was runner-up for “Winter’s Bone”
    – Tarantino also had Waltz as runner-up (2012) and winner (2009), 
    – David O. Russell was runner-up as writer for “Silver Linings Playbook” (2012), 
    – Michael Fassbender won in 2011 for “Shame”, “A dangerous method”, “X-Men”, “Jane Eyre”
    – Emmanuel Lubezki has won multiple times: “Children of Men” (2006), “The Tree of Life” (2011), “Gravity” (2013), “Birdman” (2014).
    – Olivier Assayas won Best Director for “Carlos” (2010) and Foreign Film for “Summer Hours” (2009)
    – Pixar won Best Film with “Wall-E”
    – Charlie Kaufman was runner-up in Screenplay for “Synechdoque, New York” (2008)
    – Aaron Sorkin won Screenplay in 2010 for “The Social Network”
    – Roger Deakins was runner-up for “True Grit” (2010)
    – Alexandre Desplat won for “The Ghost Writer” (2010), was runner-up for “Fantastic Mr. Fox” (2009)
    – Carey Mulligan was runner-up for “An Education” (2009)
    – Marion Cotillard won for “La vie en rose” (2007)
    – Todd Haynes’s “Far From Heaven” (2002) won Actress, Cinematography, Score…
    …and a lot more, but these are at least refreshing.
    – Iñárritu has never won but he got an acting win from Naomi Watts (2003)

    Fingers crossed for the great, John Seale.

    Thinking they’ll go a lot, with Carol, FL, and Jobs.

    “Mad Max” won the National Board of Review and “Carol” just won with the New York Film Critics Circle. For the sake of being different, I just predicted “Straight Outta Compton” to win here with the L.A. critics. It’s currently waaaaay down in 26th place on our chart so I’m gonna cash in on the points if I’m right!

    Sunday, announcing their winners one at a time while Boston and New York Online do the same and BIFA has their award show (webcast likely available, was last year at least). Busy day.

    I’m going for a win for “The Revenant” since no awards show (Gotham, NBR, NYFCC) have had the same best film winner yet and I want to continue that. I think they’ll award Rohrig with such an open field.

    BEST FILM – The Revenant
    BEST DIRECTOR – Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
    BEST ACTOR – Geza Rohrig
    BEST ACTRESS – Brie Larson
    BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR – Mark Rylance
    BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS – Jennifer Jason Leigh

    Looks pretty good to me, although I’m really confused about Best Actress.

    Still, Brie. Leo and JJL were  born in California. Same with Todd Haynes. Jennifer’s dad died there as well.

    I wonder how much this will matter.
