    What if a scenario where ‘Whiplash’ overperform at Oscars night happens?

    I think it’s possible. Of its 5 nominations, is out of the Picture race, but 1 is a lock and the another 3 are highly approachable.

    Editing, Adapted Screenplay, Sound Mixing and Supporting Actor. Could ‘Whiplash‘ end up with 4 wins?

    I think Sound and Editing are both real possibilities, simply because they’re both very showy and used to great dramatic (and unsubtle) effect.  Certainly, musical films fare pretty well here, though the biggest help right now is that there’s no clear and obvious front-runner in either.

    I think Screenplay is just wishful thinking, though.  I think it would max at 3.

    Why not? It won three with BAFTA, which I was lucky enough to predict. With Oscar, Whiplash will have a tougher go with Sound and Editing. I dont think it wins Adapted either, although it’s one of the best in it’s category.

    I’d far rather see this win over many of the others. And I say that not being the biggest fan of this film.

    I just posted in the upset thread, how I want Whiplash to win the three it got at BAFTA. I wish that it had a chance in Picture, because it is a really great film.

    It has Supp. Actor to start — I think there’s a (very) distant chance of an Editing win, and I think it can more easily take Sound Mixing.

    Oh man, me too.

    Don’t you think it has any tiny chances on Screenplay?

    Chazelle would be right around the same age as Orson Welles if he pulls the upset and wins. Now THAT, is something I’d love to see.

    I think this movie really stands out in the screenplay category because unlike the other four nominated it was not based on a book, this is based on the real life of Damien Chazelle who directed and wrote the movie, the only other nominee who pulled double-duty is Paul Thomas Anderson and that seems unlikely. If they like rewarding someone who took their own vision and brought it to screen Chazelle has a real chance here.

    Now I want it even more!

    Damien Chazelle taking the stage cut to J.K. Simmons from his seat slightly nodding. “This f*cking kid.”

    It would be it’s biggest upset for sure, but I could see it happening. There isn’t a single standout favourite in that category.

    I think it will take 4/5. Supporting Actor is a lock. Editing and Adapted Screenplay are very likely and so is Sound Mixing. I would love it won Picture. That would be the greatest upset of all time

    You know, that Adapted Screenplay switch seemed to come late in the game, and it still got nominated. The support in a couple of techs doesn’t hurt, and neither does being a Best Picture nominee. Supporting Actor is locked. Sound is a good possibility. Editing isn’t likely, but could happen. The support is there. I’ve gotta say, I would be totally okay with a Whiplash win.

    Whiplash is kind of the only film with a fair amount of nominations, which is virtually universally liked. I haven’t heard anything to detract from it all season, but there are those who don’t like Boyhood/Birdman/Grand Budapest Hotel.

    If any film is to be the surprise biggest winner, then Whiplash will be it. Last year that was Dallas Buyers Club, who managed to get the same amount of nods as 12 Years a Slave.

    Why would they want to reward someone for “bringing their own vision to the screen” in a category that specifically rewards ADAPTATIONS?
