    I think you gotta start with the presumption of New York voters’ influence on them, since that’s where they vote for them these days and most of the critics from outside NY can only send proxy ballots. 

    Best Film – Carol (NY winner) 
    Best Director – George Miller, Mad Max: Fury Road (LA winner)
    Best Actor – Géza Röhrig, Son of Saul (LA runner-up)
    Best Actress – Charlotte Rampling, 45 Years (LA winner)
    Best Supporting Actor – Mark Rylance, Bridge of Spies (NY winner)
    Best Supporting Actress – Kristen Stewart, Clouds of Sils Maria (NY winner, LA runner-up)
    Best Screenplay – Carol (NY winner)
    Best Foreign Film – The Assassin
    Best Nonfiction Film – In Jackson Heights (NY winner)
    Best Cinematography – The Assassin

    I just hope these winners aren’t as bad as last year. 

    I’m struggling to find a “bad” winner from last year, not including Goodbye to Language as I haven’t seen it and I refuse to do so unless it’s in 3D.

    My predictions:

    Film: Carol
    Director: Todd Haynes
    Actor: Géza Röhrig
    Actress: Charlotte Rampling
    Supporting Actor: Michael Shannon
    Supporting Actress: Kristen Stewart
    Screenplay: Carol
    Cinematography: The Assassin
    Foreign Language Film: A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence
    Non-Fiction Film: The Look of Silence

    Voting is usually on the first Saturday of January, but b/c New Year’s Day fell on a Friday this year, the awards will be postponed until Sunday. More time to make your final predictions!

    I’m wondering if we could see Best Picture or Director go to The Assassin?

    For some reason I thought GTL won more than it did. It just won BP.

    So, nevermind on calling the whole group bad, it was just BP.

    If this group chooses a movie other than Carol, Mad Max or Spotlight, it will have done it’s job of providing an alternative title. With most categories decided, the impact will be minimal. Having said that, a win for Geza Rohrig could potentially (really slim) provide the biggest boost of the day IMO.
