    For the past two years, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Mad Max: Fury Road overcame the seemingly impossible to become the leading winners on the Oscars tally almost a whole year after their respective releases.

    So, which film released in the earlier months of this year do you think will fare best at next year’s Oscars?

    I’ve listed some films which have already been seen/released and have received warm praise, as well as a couple which are more on paper contenders.

    If your pick isn’t listed, say on here what it is. And whichever film you choose, what categories do you see the film being nominated for?

    Zootopia is very likely for Animated Feature, but this is shaping up to be a very strong year in animation sight unseen, so who knows.

    It’s in, no doubt

    Love and Friendship – hopefully Best Leading Actress but also Best Adapted Screenplay, Production Design and Costumes.

    I’m presuming by early release you mean before August, here are a few you haven’t mentioned.

    Hail, Caesar! – could get nominations in Best Picture, Director, Supporting Actor, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Costume Design & Production Design. I didn’t like the film that much but it’s about Hollywood and it’s by the Coen Brothers so it can’t be written off.

    Money Monster – possible nominations in Best Picture, Director, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Original Screenplay & Editing. This probably won’t do that well as TriStar Picture’s Awards frontrunner is likely going to be Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, however if that turn’s out to be a dud then I can see Money Monster getting some traction. Juila Roberts in particular has a good shot at a nomination.

    Jason Bourne – Don’t count out this film, If you had told me this time last year Mad Max would be a best picture nominee I wouldn’t have believed you. The Bourne Ultimatum won Editing, Sound Editing & Sound Mixing so I can see it being nominated in those catergories again. I can also see it getting Best Picture, Director & Cinematography nominations.

    Out of those three I think Jason Bourne has the best shot at being a best picture nominee but it is an action film so it’s chances are slim.

    I think Everybody Wants Some will get into Screenplay and possibly Directing. Zootopia for Animated Film and FFJ for Actress and maybe costume design.

    The reviews of Midnight Special have suggested that it’s something of a modern day “Close Encounters” and that film did get a slew of nominations even for Best Director. If Midnight Special makes voters feel nostalgic, they could easily embrace it. I mean, if Mad Max can get in for BP, I’ve become positive a film like Midnight Special can. If that doesn’t happen, then Jeff Nichols still has Loving later this year.

    When we are discussing acting noms, I was wondering if we could say who the noms would be for. For exampl, PT Williamson, who do you think would get a S. Actor nom for Hail Caesar?

    Alden Ehrenreich – But it’s highly unlikely

    Highly doubt Zootopia will break into the Best Picture race. If Inside Out couldn’t do it, frankly, it would take an animated Weinstein Company biopic to crack the top category.

    however Zootopia has a strong possibility to win animated feature. I can see it among the animation nominees

    It won’t get into Picture but it’s a lock for an Animated Feature nomination
