    Definitely Carol, The Martian, and Spotlight. Maybe also The Revenant and hopefully Room can get in all three. Lenny Abrahamson looks to be on the outside looking in so fingers crossed.

    Pretty obvious that Spotlight is the only choice right now. Everybody else has to wait and see. Ridley Scott might miss, Todd Haynes might definitely miss, The Revenant deserves all three but who knows.

    Even though Room is a great film thanks to its performances and a nice screenplay, Direction was one of its biggest problem thanks to a film that could’ve looked and moved much better than it did inside and outside of that room (specially inside).

    I’m currently predicting Spotlight, Carol and Bridge of Spies to make the trifecta. Pretty confident about the former two, not so much about Spielberg for the latter but we’ll see. The Revenant also has a chance.

    I’ve copied the list above and left only those with the big 5 – Picture, Directing, Acting, Writing and Editing – remaining. As of now I’m predicting Spotlight and Bridge of Spies to achieve this, but not Carol as I’m doubtful that it gets an editing nod, as deserving as it would be.

    Spotlight is the only sure bet. I’m also predicting Carol makes it, but its screenplay position is precarious right now. I don’t think The Revenant is really in the screenplay conversation, and The Martian feels like it’s been losing heat as Mad Max and Star Wars have come on strong.
