    I did this a few years back and if I’m not wrong, someone else also did either last yr or the yr before that.

    imagine the past 5 winners were nominated against each other, who do you think will be the winner and why? this is not asking for your personal opinion but rather your take on what might make one nominee edged out the rest for the win?

    To be fair, many of these wins were decided by the buzz, popularity, zeitgeist etc at the moment they won. I imagine the question is who would win if such a vote happened at this moment.

    yes, that’s what i meant. mrgoodwood. basically who would have the best narrative if the vote happened at this time. imagining that the previous oscars before this was the year that king’s speech won.

    it would mean that meryl has not gotten her 3rd oscar and cate has not gotten her 2nd.

    it’s interesting to note that the director lineups has no americans and with a director getting 2 noms. considering soderbergh won for one of his noms the last time a similar situation happened, would we see inarritu also repeating?

    i would dissect more but i’m sleepy and need to sleep. so i would post my thoughts once i wake up and have time to do this haha.

    Best Picture: Birdman (The only film that won both directing and screenplay among the 5)
    Best Director: Alfonso Cuaron
    Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) (too overdue)
    Best Actress:  Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) (overdue and the credit of the performance)
    Best Supporting Actor: JK Simmons (Whiplash) (no-brainer)
    Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) (It is between her and Spencer. The fact that it took her 12 years may help her win over Spencer. Hathaway is unlikeable that may hurt her chance in a close race)
    Best Original Screenplay: Birdman
    Best Adapted Screenplay: 12 Years A Slave

    PICTURE:

    SPOTLIGHT (2016)
    BIRDMAN (2015)
    12 YEARS A SLAVE (2014)
    ARGO (2013) Islamaphobia likely wins, although the other fantasy in this group may have given it a run
    THE ARTIST (2012)

    DIRECTOR:

    ALEJANDRO G. INARRITU – THE REVENANT
    ALEJANDRO G. INARRITU – BIRDMAN
    ALFONSO CUARON – GRAVITY
    ANG LEE –  LIFE OF PI
    MICHEL HAZANAVICIUS – THE ARTIST Different from the rest

    LEAD ACTOR:
     
    LEONARDO DICAPRIO – THE REVENANT
    EDDIE REDMAYNE – THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING
    MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY – DALLAS BUYERS CLUB
    DANIEL DAY-LEWIS – LINCOLN  Portraying an Icon, Leo may still be waiting….
    JEAN DUJARDIN – THE ARTIST

    LEAD ACTRESS:

    BRIE LARSON – ROOM
    JULIANNE MOORE – STILL ALICE
    CATE BLANCHETT – BLUE JASMINE One of the all-time stellar perfs ever
    JENNIFER LAWRENCE – SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK
    MERYL STREEP – THE IRON LADY

    SUPPORTING ACTOR:

    MARK RYLANCE – BRIDGE OF SPIES
    J. K. SIMMONS – WHIPLASH
    JARED LETO – DALLAS BUYERS CLUB
    CHRISTOPH WALTZ – DJANGO UNCHAINED
    CHRISTOPHER PLUMMER – BEGINNERS An unbelievably terrific, subdued perf, along with Rylance and to some degree, Waltz. But I think the “due” factor puts him over.

    PATRICIA ARQUETTE – BOYHOOD Commitment people

    Lupita almost lost to JLaw – how on earth she would win over 3-sure-bet winners with better performances and narratives? I mean even Vikander would win over her. You are all delusional.
