    As of now, I believe the only category it is predicted to be nominated in is for Best Supporting Actor: Sylvester Stallone. It has shcokingly poor odds in categories where I am really surprised it isn’t predicted, such as Best Film Editing (for which I think the film should WIN), Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Cinematography, Score, and Original Song ): I personally think it should get noms for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay (I know: it is ridiculously being placed in the Best Adapted Screenplay due to a stupid rule! But this script is definitely an original and not an adaptation). I wouldn’t mind at all if they gave Ryan Coogler a nomination for Best Director. Michael B Jordan would be a delightful Lead Actor nominee. So why is it doing so poorly? Critics raved, audiences loved it, yet it’s still not getting any Oscar nominations traction? Why?

    Probably because compared to a certain other box office hit that’s from a beloved 1970’s franchise all its acclaim and box office look puny. Star Wars has been dominating the conversation for weeks before it even opened (as well it should) but it’s come at Creed’s expense.

    Because whatever way you try and dress it up it’s still Rocky 7.

    ^Have you seen Creed? It’s brilliant. It’s also completely different than the previous Rocky films. It’s portrait of black people’s lives and relationships is dynamic, exciting and wonderful. The editing is fantastic. The use of sound – both editing and mixing – creates enormous excitement. The score is pulsating and alive. MIchael B Jordan is thrilling. Stallone is understated and gives the best performance of his career. The script is thoughtful and different. Ryan Coogler is a director who has created two great films his first two times – and will have a great career, I’m certain. I love the way the film handles the working class milieu of Philadelphia. It’s a fantastic movie! (:

    Which if they’d just gone with the subtitle The Simpsons came up with 20 years ago it would have doubled the darn gross!

    I wasn’t commenting on the quality of the film (Which hasn’t opened where I am yet) just speculating on why it may not have picked up the traction we all thought it would.

    I watched Creed and it is a good film but certainly does not deserve an Oscar nod. Stallone gave better performances in the previous Rocky films. Michael B Jordan was good but he is far from being Oscar worthy.

    I talked about this when Creed came out. Before it came out, Creed was not seen as an awards contender. It didn’t have the pre-release buzz. Once people saw it, they realized it WAS an Oscar-worthy film, but the Oscar machine is already in “full stream ahead” mode with movies like “Joy”, “The Hateful Eight”, and “Trumbo” with people assuming those were going to be incredible movies. Turns out they aren’t, but the pre-release buzz has been going for so long that it’s too late to derail those Oscar campaigns for underwhelming movies in favour of movies that actually deserve nominations. It’s the major problem with this idea of predicting Oscar nominations months/years in advance.
