Like you I am predicting the Good Dinosaur to get snubbed as well as Michael Shannon. I’m predicting Beasts Of No Nation it’s in my 10th spot but it’s still in there. I’m also predicting Adam McKay and Joan AllenJanuary 3, 2016 at 3:25 pm #205127
Either Room or Carol snubbed for Best Adapted Screenplay
Sylvester Stallone snubbed for Best Supporting Actor
JJL snubbed for Best Supporting Actress
Trumbo having several nominations including picture, actor, supporting actress and screenplay
Since 2007, there is always at least one film getting at least 3 acting nominations. If they really like the cast of the movie so much, there may be some surprise acting nomination for that movie. Remember Bradley Cooper for American Hustle and Jacki Weaver for Silver Linings Playbook? The only possibilities to get 3 acting nominations are Room, Steve Jobs and Spotlight.January 3, 2016 at 3:27 pm #205128
Ridley Scott will miss directing. In fact, I think The Martian will underperform.
The Big Short will have multiple acting entries: Carell for actor, Bale for supporting. I think it will be one of the movies with most nominations along with Mad Max, Spotlight, Carol, and Room.January 3, 2016 at 3:31 pm #205129
I have Tom Hanks in 5th place for Best Actor. With such a wide open spot, I can see him taking it, especially with a potential wave of Bridge of Spies support (come on guys, the Academy are going to love it)January 3, 2016 at 3:32 pm #205130
I think When Marni Was There will surprise in Animation. Penauts Movie snubbed
– The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared might surprise in makeup
– Crimson Peak might surprise in Costumes and Production design
– Jacob Tremblay WILL get for sure in supporting. I dont know if this will be surprise but many are not predicting him
– Abrahamson might get in also
– Look out for Straight Outta Compton in BPJanuary 3, 2016 at 3:34 pm #205131
THe Big Short can only get like 6 nominations. BP, Actor, supporting, editing, screenplay, Mckay and thats itJanuary 3, 2016 at 3:44 pm #205132
Steve Carell will get in for Best Actor.January 3, 2016 at 3:48 pm #205133
matt damon misses actor (steve carell takes his place)
todd haynes misses director (adam mckay takes his place)
idris elba misses supporting actor (christian bale takes his place)

Bryan Cranston for Best ActorJanuary 3, 2016 at 4:02 pm #205135
We still have the Globe winners, BAFTA and all but one of the guilds, so it is a little early to be making outrageous last-minute predictions. Inside Out getting a sound editing nomination for example from the first post is going to be the opposite of a surprise if it gets nominated by BAFTA and the guilds for sound.January 3, 2016 at 4:28 pm #205136
Every nominee for every category will be a white male except in the Actress categories, though Eddie Redmayne will be nominated for Best Actress in order to be progressive.January 3, 2016 at 4:36 pm #205137

Yeah maybe, but it’s still 11 days away from nominations. So I figured do it early and take a look at the progression throughout the days of what people are predicting to surprise/snub.

I don’t know if I would call that a last minute change, but I really would like to know everyone’s original thoughts about all the races on this thread atm; because like always, after the PGA nominations announced, everything will be so easy and all predictions will look so identical.
Right know, Inside Out looks like a movie that people went overboard regarding its chances after it came out, started to calm down as the year progress and finally gaving up on its chances, only to be shocked by hearing its name called on the nomination morning as the Best Picture nominee. So my money is on that.
Room’s crowd-pleasing factor is reminding me of the reactions for Gone Girl last year. Both book adaptations and both have a similar style of storytelling. The fact that SO many people here(haven’t seen a person that dislikes it) collectively rooting for the movie can only be bad news lol. But, hey, maybe its this years Whiplash? Who knows. And Room also has that sentimentality factor that GG didn’t have.
Also do not count out Beasts of No Nation, Attah and Netflix! If SAG nominated both Elba and its no-name little cast, its main character couldn’t have been THAT far from a nomination.January 3, 2016 at 5:26 pm #205139
In all seriousness, I can see Ricki and the Flash maybe getting a surprise nod for Song, as well as Going Clear getting snubbed for Best Documentary. I mean, like Hollywood is going to let that get nominated. They need John Travolta to misproounce people’s names every year.
