    I have literally no idea at all. These Awards are maybe the hardest to predict in existence. Yes, MAYBE even harder than the infamous Emmys! This is the one time I feel comfortable throwing my hands up in surrender. 😛

    Actually, you know what, I am going to make one prediction: That Son of Saul guy (sorry for forgetting your name) for Best Actor.

    I have literally no idea at all. These Awards are maybe the hardest to predict in existence. 

    Haha I agree! But I think I typically agree with and/or respect their decisions the most! Though, last year seems to have been a departure from their usual awards–in the sense that I think it was their most Oscar-friendly slate of winners ever. I wonder if that trend will continue this year.

    I have a feeling they might go big for Son of Saul and/or The Assassin. But they could just as easily go full tilt on something like Anomalisa. But instead my guess is…

    Here are my predix:

    Best Film 
    Youth

    Best Director 
    Sorrentino | Youth

    Best Actor 
    Caine | Youth

    Best Actress 
    Vikander | Ex Machina, The Danish Girl, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Burnt

    Best Screenplay 
    Son of Saul

    Best Supporting Actor 
    Dano | Love & Mercy, Youth 

    Best Supporting Actress 
    Leigh | The Hateful Eight

    Best Animated Film 
    Inside Out

    Best Documentary Film 
    Amy

    Best Foreign Language Film 
    Son of Saul

    TIP: L.A. likes to have a foreign/obscure choice for Best Lead Actress.

    The thing about these guys lately is that there have been some reactionary choices to NY, so it might be easier to tell then. For now I say this. 

    Film – Inside Out
    Director – George Miller
    Actress – Rooney Mara
    Actor –  Jacob Tremblay 
    Supporting Actress – Mya Taylor
    Supporting Actor – Mark Ruffalo 
    Screenplay – Anomalisa
    Animated – Inside Out
    Foreign Language – Phoenix
    Documentary –  The Look of Silence (I think this sweeps)

    I can see Fury Road winning BP here. Even more so with Director.

    Mad Max – Fury Road. And it will probably sweep quite a few categories.

     

    And i will bet a huge sum of cash that Best actress will be between Regina Case (The Second Mother) and Charlotte Rampling.

    Maybe  Lily Tomlin (Grandma).

    Yeah I think Charlotte Rampling will probably be awarded best actress here.

    I also think Ex Machina could pick up a couple awards here especially supporting actress, supporting actor (if they don’t end up rewarding Dano), and screenplay.

    Throughout Pinto’s opinion, this behaviour shows that they would usually cash in fifa coins on lining up intercontinental players.”From that will, I can only say if they are organising Brazilians to acquire these clubs, and have them a trial [then] they will be getting a new cut, ” they said.’They didn’t recognize how they were gonna get back home’.
    Pinto explained his former B razil team mates ended up generally plucked via obscurity and poverty.”These players which have been coming, they are generally playing at hellofifa.com smaller clubs, they probably are playing totally free, they are almost certainly playing on shit pitches around there, ” they said.
