    Post your predictions and claim bragging rights at the end of the year! Which films and performances do you think will sweep the critics awards in December? Why?

    The only one I can firmly predict is Carol and Rooney Mara with Cate Blanchett probably joining the party. As a film it seems like a lock for critics to love it. Even though only 10 critics have reviewed it, a 98 on metacritic after multiple screenings seems promising. I’m hoping it does well!

    I think Kristen Stewart will be a huge critics darling.

    Stewart will need more great movies to wash Twilight of herself.

    Foreign Language Film awards likely to be dominated by Son of Saul

    Animated Feature awards likely to go to Inside Out

    Rooney Mara will probably be a big winner with Supporting Actress

    Idris Elba most likely to dominate Supporting Actor critic’s choices

    Charlotte Rampling may do well with Best Actress wins in the critic’s circle awards
    Macbeth could do well too

    I think The Revenant will be the choice of a lot of groups this season. I get the sense that it will have the feel of an indie movie, with the calibre of Hollywood, which is a winning combination when done right.

    DiCaprio and Redmayne   for actor 
    Inarritu, Haynes, and Russell for director

    I see Steve Jobs getting citations for Actor and Screenplay. When the dust settles, I think Carol and The Revenant may vie for Picture in most groups. Interestingly, despite overwheing adoration, I don’t think many will get behind Mad Max.

    It has to be Carol surely?

    I think that Carol is going to have a similar awards season to Boyhood’s expect it will get best actress nomination’s instead of best supporting actor nomination’s. It will slay at the Globes and Critic Choice Awards but when it comes to the Guild’s it will lose out to other films. Like Boyhood it’s consistent winner will be in Best Supporting Actress catergory.

    I think Todd Haynes is the strongest Best Director contender… A critical darling for sure. Rooney Mara and perhaps Charlotte Rampling too.

    Rooney is definitely sweeping Supp Actress.

    I can see critics really throwing their weight behind George Miller. I can even picture LA giving Fury Road their BP/BD awards, too.

    I wouldn’t be too surprised to see something like NSFC give Son of Saul some recognition.

    What actresses do we have in foreign films this year? LAFC will probably go for her. If not Charlotte Rampling seems a safe bet.

    Actress: Rampling and the Carol girls.
    Supporting Actress: Alicia Vikander. Jennifer JL was always a critical darling so maybe her too.
    Actor: split between Fassbender, Hiddleston, Redmayne + DiCaprio.
    Supporting Actor: Hardy, Keitel and Elba fighting out in
    I can see Inside Out surprising in screenplay at a major critics group too.
    Todd Haynes will do well in director, George Miller maybe?

    I could see Charlotte Rampling being a critical darling as well as Kristen Stewart. They both seem like LAFCA-fodder. I wouldn’t even be surprised if Mad Max got some LAFCA or NSFC love. It is one of the most critically-acclaimed films of the year with a RT rating in the high 90’s.
