We all like to think we know what we’re talking about with the Oscars, Globes, BAFTAs etc, but how are we with predicting…ourselves?
With many an Oscar baity film to be seen by the general public, can you guess what films will make it onto YOUR ballot for the Gold Derby Film Awards?
And can you predict at this ghastly early stage, which films we Derbyites will put our votes behind, and be nominated for our awards themselves?September 13, 2015 at 5:05 am #194229
I’m thinking Mad Max: Fury Road will be making quite an appearance (Picture, Director, Actress, Editing, Screenplay, Cinematography, Sound, Visual Effects, Makeup, Costume Design, Art Direction, Score). Also, Rose Byrne might at least appear in my top 3 for Best Supporting Actress for Spy. But I might already have two nomination locks for Best Original Screenplay: Inside Out and Trainwreck.September 13, 2015 at 5:11 am #194230
Steve Jobs will do better at the Oscars than at the Gold Derby Film Awards.September 13, 2015 at 5:11 am #194231
Based on what I’ve seen so far, I’d say Inside Out is the closest I have to a lock for a Best Picture lock. Original Screenplay, Score and Animation also pretty much locks at this stage for Inside Out too.September 13, 2015 at 11:08 am #194232
FYC: Inside Out. Come on people, let’s make this the first animated feature to win the GoldDerby Film Award for Best Picture! … after WALL-E.
FYC: Ready Player One. Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Original Score, Production Design, Director and BEST PICTURE (make it happen Oscars!!)September 13, 2015 at 1:03 pm #194233
Mad Max: Fury Road and Inside Out will do very well on my ballot. I also have high hopes for Sicario, The Martian, and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.September 13, 2015 at 2:23 pm #194234

Probably I’m gonna stick to my early darlings, Inside Out and Mad Max: Fury Road.
Not hyper hyped about pretty much any of those awards-bait movies – which is strange. For the rest of the year Sicario and Spectre had the best chances with me, and I have good will for The Force Awakens. So will see.
