In our latest Gold Derby slugfest (watch above), our editors panic over the Best Picture race with only days to go until the Oscars air on ABC February 28. Will “The Revenant” claim Oscar glory, as it did at BAFTA, DGA and Golden Globes? Or could PGA winner “The Big Short,” SAG champ “Spotlight” or guild nominations leader “Mad Max: Fury Road” pull off a major upset?
“Is this the year we’re gonna find out what idiots Gold Derby’s predictors are across the board?” jokes editor-in-chief Tom O’Neil. “Because, whatever happens, I think we’re gonna look foolish.”
Watch Gold Derby editors Tom O’Neil, Paul Sheehan, Chris Beachum, Daniel Montgomery and Marcus James Dixon come out swinging in our riotous predictions video above and then have your say by sounding off in the comments section below. Which editors do YOU agree with, and who’s going off on a ledge?
Our editors also weigh the pros and cons for either Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) or Kate Winslet (“Steve Jobs”) winning Best Supporting Actress. And they debate some of those head-scratching below-the-line races like Best Score, Best Visual Effects and Best Sound Editing/Mixing.
