    Let’s talk about nominations/snubs that no one saw coming but you predicted.

    In 2013, I predicted Jonah Hill being nominated for Best Sup. Actor (The Wolf of Wall Street) and Tom Hanks being snubbed for Best Actor (Captain Phillips).

    In 2014, I predicted Marion Cotillard for Best Actress (Two Days, One Night) and Laura Dern for Sup. Actress (Wild). I also predicted Jake Gylenhaal being snubbed for Nightcrawler and this film being nominated only in Original Screenplay, and Jennifer Aniston snubbed for Cake (her snub wasn’t shocking at all).

    In 2015, I predicted Rachel McAdams and Tom Hardy in supporting categories for Spotlight and The Revenant, respectively.

    In 2016, I only predicted Kubo and The Two Strings in Best Visual Effects.

    I predicted Rachel McAdams and Tom Hardy’s nomination as well.

    I have also predicted that Idris Elba will be snubbed for Beasts of No Nation (I don’t know if this was shocking)

    OMG. I forgot Idris Elba. I also predicted his Beasts of No Nation snub. Yes, because of Netflix.

    I predicted Carol missing Picture and Director, Gone Girl snubbed in everything but Rosamund Pike, and I didn’t take her out of my predictions but I had a heavy feeling that Amy Adams would snubbed for Arrival.

    I predicted Trumbo getting snubbed for everything but Bryan Cranston. I also predicted Kubo and the Two Strings in VFX (super deserving nom btw). I predicted Rachel McAdams but didn’t realize she was considered a surprising nominee.

    I had 13 Hours in Sound Mixing. I had Kubo AND Deepwater Horizon in VFX. I just such a strong hunch that Arrival would be snubbed there, but I couldn’t figure out what to replace it with since I figured if Ex Machina could get nominated and win, why couldn’t Arrival? I didn’t predict Rogue One because the way they brought dead actors visually back to life with CGI seemed polarizing.

    I predicted Suicide Squad to win Makeup and Hairstyling! Star Trek Beyond just had the same generic alien makeup we’d seen done a million times before and A Man Called Ove not enough people had heard of, let alone seen, even with it being a Foreign Language Film nominee. There was no competition for Suicide Squad.

    I also had Selma missing every category except for Song, so while I didn’t predict its Best Picture nod, I didn’t falsely predict it for SO MANY other categories my fellow predictors did, like Lead Actor and Director.

    I predicted Disney Wars: TFA would lose every Oscar, including Visual Effects.

    I never understood why so many people were predicting Carol after all its guild snubs. I would have thought it would have at least made the cut with PGA if people were going to make such a big deal about it being a Best Picture contender. I had it getting snubbed in Picture and Director.

    At the Tony Awards recently, I correctly predicted Michael Aronov would win for Oslo, which was really awesome for me since I never watch any Broadway plays.

    Not only did I predict Moonlight’s only Globe win would be Best Drama Picture, I also predicted that it would win the Oscar for Best Picture (even placing my Super Bet on it there) when every sheep on the planet kept shouting “La La Land! Baaa Baaa Baaand!!!” Even after its SAG Ensemble snub and its WGA loss and the obvious passion Moonlight had with its black gay love story? Come on, this one should have been obvious. “But La La Land won Bafta!” So did Boyhood and The Revenant, didn’t help there. “But La La Land won DGA and PGA!” So did Saving Private Ryan and Brokeback Mountain, not to mention recently Gravity (tying with 12 Years A Slave at PGA), The Big Short at PGA, and The Revenant at DGA. Didn’t help them there either. I love how Bee called the way movies win the Oscar for Best Picture now an “overall likability factor.” Moonlight, Spotlight, and surprisingly Birdman all had that, and that is why they defied so many of the stats by pulling off BP wins in spite of under-performing to varying degrees at some seemingly key precursors.

    I called The Handmaid’s Tale winning every major Emmy that it won except for Ann Dowd’s. I also predicted Bob’s Burgers for Animated Program simply because it had the best episode submission. Funny, since I had Steven Universe in 1st place and Adventure Time in last for that same reason, but… well, we all know how that turned out. 🙁

    Big Hero 6 vs How To Train Your Dragon 2 at the Oscars was a real coin toss and I’m so proud of myself for correctly predicting the former.

    I will never forget the Globe year I predicted The Affair to win Drama Series and Drama Actress for Ruth Wilson but to lose Drama Actor for Dominic West to Kevin Spacey for House of Cards. I still can’t believe people thought that Clive Owen would win for The Knick, since I remember his show wasn’t even a Drama Series nominee with the Globes. Owen was amazing, and in hindsight he deserved to win more than Spacey, but at the time I was thrilled Frank Underwood could be called a Globe-winning performance.

    I predicted 20th Century woman in Original Screenplay, in fact I got Original Screenplay completely right last year, nominees and winner.

    I predicted Ruth Negga, but I didn’t see Adams’ snub.

    I got the Foreign Film nominations right including Tanna.
