    We always miss someone — just ask Bradley Cooper who has not been among our predicted Oscar nominees for past three years but has managed to reap bids!

    Who are we not giving their due this awards season?

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Like Cate Blanchett once said about the Oscars, “these things are all about timing,” and this film will be the event of the time it comes out. When Gravity and Avatar were released, they were the events of the time and don’t give me that “the Academy hates sci-fi” crap. They gave Gravity and the first Star Wars 7 Oscars each. When the right genre film is in contention, they go for it and we have plenty of those here for them to choose from: Mad Max, The Martian, Inside Out, Star Wars, etc.

    I’m almost certain that Bradley Cooper was in the final predicted 5 by nomination day for both SLP and American Hustle. Not American Sniper though.

    Dame Maggie Smith in The Lady In The Van, who will compete with the two younger american actresses (Brie Larson and Jennifer Lawrence) for the Oscar. (At the moment, I think Cate Blanchett and Charlotte Rampling will join them as the nominees)….

    Jacob Tremblay will get a nomination in one of the two acting categories; he’s a lead but is more likely to get the child actor supporting nomination they always seem to get in clear cases of category fraud.

    Geza Rohrig seems like the best bet for a dark horse nomination. We’ve seen foreign films hit big with The Academy before and when they do they can often come with acting nominations. 

    The way I see it, the at one point competitive Lead Actor field has weakened a bit in the last few weeks–as Depp, Redmayne and Hanks lose steam, spots start to open up. If voters really attach themselves to Son of Saul, Rohrig could come through.

    Industry favorite Bryan Cranston will hopefully get in for “Trumbo.”

    I think a win for him and a strong showing for the film at Golden Globes could definitely help the cause.

    I am with benutty, I think Geza Rohrig is someone we are underestimating.  I think he has a strong chance at a nomination.

    I think many are underestimating Joan Allen for Room; she is a superb actress with prior nominations.  I think she could be a poiler in in this Oscar season.

    I also think many are underestimating the strength The Martian will show in BP, strong box office, great reviews, a like able story.

    I think Blythe Danner makes a lot of sense as a SAG nominee and will become at least a big threat for the nomination from there. Her film did well on the arthouse circuit and it’s a very likable and watchable movie, and if I’m not mistaken also the first screener sent out. If there was enough love for her to give her daughter the Oscar over Cate Blanchett…

    LILY TOMLIN 

    I haven’t seen it yet but Youth seems to be highly underestamated. I think a movie about senior citizen artists will have a deep connection to the older members of the Academy. Plus it helps Caine, Kietel, and Fonda are (for the most part) beloved by their peers.

    The Danish Girl feels like it keeps getting pushed aside when I feel like it will definitely be a talking point within the next month for the performances and subject.

    The End of the Tour if the screeners are dealt with properly. The writers branch will definitely go for it if they get their hands on it. Segel may as well

    We are clealry underestimating “In the Heart of the Sea”. It have great director in Ron Howard and could be second Life Of Pi if reviews are great (90%+ on RT). If so its gonna be nominated for BEST PICTURE. Mark my words.
