Guild awards scorecard: ‘Bridge of Spies,’ Mad Max: Fury Road,’ ‘The Martian,’ ‘The Revenant,’ ‘Sicario’ lead

Prior to Oscar voting closing on Friday (Jan. 8), we’ll have heard from seven of the guilds as to their picks for the best of the year. Four more don’t announce their nominees till next week: Directors Guild, Cinema Audio Society and Visual Effects Society (next Tuesday); and Makeup & Hairstylist Guild (next Wednesday) while the Motion Picture Sound Editors don’t chime in till Jan. 29.

No film has reaped bids across the board or even with six of the seven. Five films are in contention at five guilds: “Bridge of Spies,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Martian,” “The Revenant” and “Sicario.” Our current frontrunner for Best Picture, “Spotlight,” is in the running with three while “The Big Short” vies at four. 

Compare these tallies to last year when two films — “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “The Imitation Game” — contended across the board at this stage. “Birdman” had scored with six guilds and was not eligible with the WGA while “Boyhood” was cited by five. 

Below, a breakdown by picture of guild nominations to date.
