The Revenant” enters Sunday’s BAFTA Awards with eight nominations, and it will win half of them according to the combined predictions of Expert film journalists, we Editors who cover awards year-round for Gold Derby, the Top 24 Users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s winners and the hundreds of total Users who make up the largest and often savviest bloc of predictors.

The survival drama will take Best Picture, Best Director (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu), Best Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Best Cinematography.

Those four wins will tie “The Revenant” with “Mad Max: Fury Road” as the most awarded film at the event. Though “Mad Max” was snubbed for Picture and Director, as well as acting and writing categories, we project it will win four of its seven nominations below the line: Best Makeup and Hairtsyling, Best Production Design, Best Sound and Best Visual Effects.

With nine nominations, “Carol” and “Bridge of Spies” are tied as the most nominated films at the BAFTAs, but they won’t be among the top winners. “Carol” is projected to win twice — Best Supporting Actress (Rooney Mara) and Best Costume Design — and “Bridge of Spies” will prevail just once, for supporting actor Mark Rylance.

The Big Short” will win two of its five bids: Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Film Editing.

Fellow Best Picture nominee “Spotlight” will prevail once, for Best Original Screenplay.
