    OUTSTANDING FEMALE ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE:

    Rose Byrne as Rayna Boyanov in “SPY”
    Julianne Moore as Havana Segrand in “MAPS TO THE STARS”
    Sarah Paulson as Abby Gerhard in “CAROL”
    Jada Pickett Smith as Rome in “MAGIC MIKE XXL”
    Kristen Stewart as Valentine in “CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA”

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    ROSE BYRNE AS RAYNA BOYANOV IN “SPY”

    This is the first win and individual nomination for Rose Byrne for her performance as Rayna Boyanov in Spy. She was previously nominated with the cast of Bridesmaids (2011).

    “Dying is Easy, Comedy is Hard” this quote is so true and now watching Rose Byrne yet again shine in comedy it shows her immense talent as she does wonders with this role. From the still and silent way she delivers long pieces of dialogue to the hair acting she does from scene to scene. Spy was easily the best comedy of the year and Byrne was able to stand head and shoulders above a cast full of talented comedy workers, Byrne is just doing something so fasinating that when it came to every supporting female performance from 2015 I couldn’t help but reward Byrne for her singular gift of comedy showed at the highest standard in 2015’s Spy.

    OUTSTANDING VISUAL EFFECTS:

    Ben Snow, Alessandro Cioffi, Ken McGaugh, Nigel Denton-Howes & Rob Duncan for Avengers: Age of Ultron
    Andrew Whitehurst, Paul Norris, Mark Williams Ardington & Sara Bennett for Ex Machina
    Andrew Jackson, Tom Wood, Dan Oliver & Andy Williams for Mad Max: Fury Road
    Tim Webber, Andy Kind & Andrew Whitehurst for Paddington
    Roger Guyett, Pat Tubach, Neal Scanlan & Chris Corbould for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    ANDREW JACKSON, TOM WOOD, DAN OLIVER & ANDY WILLIAMS FOR MAD MAX: FURY ROAD

    This is the first with Andrew Jackson, Tom Wood, Dan Oliver & Andy Williams for their visual effects work on Mad Max: Fury Road. This is also Jackson, Oliver & Williams first nomination while Wood was previously nominated for Sunshine (2007).

    While Mad Max has been praised all along for it’s defining practical look even included some of the great pratical effects ever seen on screen these practical moments are only added upon by the work of these men as they add to greatly visual post-apocaliptic world these characters inhabit. Whether it’s the great dust storm the drivers find themselves in or it’s the great driving scenes which while practically driven are made the better by the visual effects added on top of those ones. Really the crafted world of Mad Max is just so special there was no other choice for brillantly visually entrancing films.

    OUTSTANDING ENSEMBLE:

    Brooklyn (Saoirse Ronan, Emory Cohen, Domhnall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters, Bríd Brennan, Jane Brennan, Fiona Glascott, Jessica Paré, Eileen O’Higgins, Jenn Murray, Emily Bett Rickards, Eve Macklin, Mary O’Driscoll, Nora-Jane Noone, Michael Zegen, Paulino Nunes, James DiGiacomo, Christian de la Cortina, Ellen David, Gerard Murphy, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Barbara Drennan, Gillian McCarthy, Ellis Rockburn, Max Walker, James Corscadden, Adrien Benn, Mella Carron)

    Magic Mike XXL (Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodríguez, Gabriel Iglesias, Andie MacDowell, Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Michael Strahan, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, Billy Reilich, Christian Boeving, Dmitry Steesy)

    Maps to the Stars (Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, Evan Bird, Carrie Fisher, Jayne Heitmeyer, Jonathan Watton, Amanda Brugel, Justin Kelly, Emilia McCarthy, Kiara Glasco, Ari Cohen, Dawn Greenhalgh, Domenic Ricci, Sean Robertson, Gord Rand)

    Spotlight (Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery, Brian d’Arcy James, Stanley Tucci, Gene Amoroso, Jamey Sheridan, Billy Crudup, Maureen Keiller, Paul Guilfoyle, Len Cariou, Neal Huff, Michael Cyril Creighton, Laurie Heineman)

    Spy (Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Jude Law, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Peter Serafinowicz, Morena Baccarin, Richard Brake, Nargis Fakhri, Björn Gustafsson, 50 Cent, Verka Serduchka, Will Yun Lee, Carlos Ponce, Michael McDonald, Mitch Silpa, Steve Bannos, Jessica Chaffin, Katie Dippold, Zach Woods, Ben Falcone, Jamie Denbo)

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    SPOTLIGHT (MARK RUFFALO, MICHAEL KEATON, RACHEL MCADAMS, LIEV SCHREIBER, JOHN SLATTERY, BRIAN D’ARCY JAMES, STANLEY TUCCI, GENE AMOROSO, JAMEY SHERIDAN, BILLY CRUDUP, MAUREEN KEILLER, PAUL GUILFOYLE, LEN CARIOU, NEAL HUFF, MICHAEL CYRIL CREIGHTON, LAUREI HEINEMAN)

    When I think about a great ensemble I think of a bunch of characters as a team and no ensemble fit this definition more then the ensemble of Tom McCarthy’s newspaper drama Spotlight. Whether it’s those scenes set at the Bostom Globe or the multiple interview scenes spanning out from the Globe newspaper each and every member of this impressive shines in the most subtle ways. It’s even funny how the singled out by the oscars (Ruffalo & McAdams) are in fact some of the weaker performances in this very strong ensemble of known and unknown actors. All the performances gidded with great strength by McCarthy make this world all the great and really what I look for in impressive ensemble’s is each actor acting to make each better and well defined from one another which Spotlight does with each of it’s characters.

    OUTSTANDING ANIMATED FEATURE FILM:

    Anomalisa (Directed by Charlie Kaufman & Duke Johnson)
    Inside Out (Directed by Pete Docter & Ronnie del Carmen)
    Minions (Directed by Pierre Coffin & Kyle Balda )
    Shaun the Sheep the Movie (Directed by Mark Burton & Richard Starzak)
    When Marnie Was There (Directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi)

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    ANOMALISA (DIRECTED BY CHARLIE KAUFMAN & DUKE JOHNSON)

    This is the first win for co-director Duke Johnson and fifth win for co-director Charlie Kaufman for their animated feature Anomalisa. This is Johnson’s first nomination. Kaufman previously won for producing Synecdoche, New York (2008) and writing Being John Malkovich (1999), Adaptation. (2002) and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004). Kaufman was also previously nominated for directing and writing Synecdoche, New York (2008).

    There is so much to like about Anomalisa from how carefully and realistically it takes the relationship of a man bored with life and with a young women who inspires him to act out even if in the end this act out doesn’t amount to much. Kaufman brings his unique style to the animation world and it fits perfectly with Johnson’s realistic puppet animation to the point where the fact they are puppets is something you choose to look over and instead you embrace the entire picture almost as live action. Really in a year of some just ok animated features Anomalisa stands high above all the animation product I saw in 2015.

    OUTSTANDING ART DIRECTION/PRODUCTION DESIGN:

    Production Design by François Séguin; Set Design by Suzanne Cloutier, Jenny Oman & Louise Tremblay for Brooklyn
    Production Design by Judy Becker; Set Design by Heather Loeffler for Carol
    Production Design by Thomas E. Sanders; Set Design by Jeffrey A. Melvin & Shane Vieau for Crimson Peak
    Production Design by Mark Digby; Set Design by Michelle Day for Ex Machina
    Production Design by Rick Carter & Darren Gilford; Set Design by Lee Sandales for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awaken

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    PRODUCTION DESIGN BY JUDY BECKER; SET DESIGN BY HEATHER LOEFFLER FOR CAROL

    This is the first win for Judy Becker & Heather Loeffler for the design work on Carol. The two were previously nominated together for American Hustle (2013) and Becker was also nominated for her work on I’m Not There (2007).

    Carol is so too beautiful for words to a point where praising every aspect with a win just seems obvious but when I think of the work on this work of these women I couldn’t help but reward them. The direction of Carol really makes the production design invisible as Haynes’ camera zooms in on our characters from every part of the body and almost forgets about the background but when the background becomes visible it just is striking how effectively Becker and Loeffler capture 1950’s america. From the winter colour scheme to the subtle ways these women reflected the characters in their designs it’s just so good. A main example of expert production design comes early in the film when the two leads first meet and just imagining how the deisgners made this old factory into one of the most beautifl toy stores imaginable it’s just too much to gush over which is why I easily give them the win.

    OUTSTANDING CINEMATOGRAPHY:

    Ping Bin Lee for The Assassin
    Edward Lachman for Carol
    Maryse Alberti for Creed
    Adam Arkapaw for Macbeth
    John Seale for Mad Max: Fury Road

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    EDWARD LACHMAN FOR CAROL

    This is the second win and fourth nomination for Edward Lachman for his breathtaking cinematography for Carol. He previously won for Far From Heaven (2002) and was nominated for The Virgin Suicides (1999) and I’m Not There (2007).

    Again Carol takes it by a margin. Lachman is so in step with Todd Haynes at this point that were the two ever not to work together I would feel a bit urked as the two have done such beautiful work for the fourth time now. Shooting on Super 16 mm each shoot of this film is like a photography I would lift from the film and hang in the best of galleries which really shows how apperciative I am of Lachman’s work. From the sweeping shoots of these women as they fall madly in love with one another to the careful camera that witnesses the true passion fully expressed. There is just so much I want to express about Lachman’s work that I don’t have the words but really his work is just the best and will long loom in my mind as the best cinematograpgy in a long time.

    OUTSTANDING FILM EDITING:

    Affonso Gonçalves for Carol
    Claudia Castello & Michael P. Shawver for Creed
    Mark Day for Ex Machina
    Margaret Sixel for Mad Max: Fury Road
    Sean Baker for Tangerine

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    AFFONSO GONÇALVES FOR CAROL

    This is the first win and nomination for Affonso Gonçalves for his editing of Carol.

    So if people care to count that’s four award (three in a row) for Carol and again it’s just too easy to reward this film every possible prize because of how brillant it is. I feel upon the release of the film the editing was overlooked just for no being flashy in the expected ways but the work being done by Gonçalves is just as impressive as any other big crazy film edit. The edit of Carol is so fluid and loose that we the film transitions from scene to scene with the greatess of ease and precision. The narrative is clearly told through glancing images of these women’s lifes in such a short period of time. It’s such a feat of how film editing is the invisible director that I have to call out here how impressive Gonçalves’ work was because other bodies (e.g. ACE Eddie’s) just choose to overlook this impeccable work.

    OUTSTANDING DOCUMENTARY:

    Amy (Directed by Asif Kapadia)
    Best of Enemies (Directed by Robert Gordon & Morgan Neville)
    Finders Keepers (Directed by Bryan Carberry & J. Clay Tweel)
    The Look of Silence (Directed by Joshua Oppenheimer)
    Western (Directed by Bill Ross IV & Turner Ross)

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    THE LOOK OF SILENCE (DIRECTED BY JOSHUA OPPENHEIMER)

    This is the first win and second nomination for Joshua Oppenheimer for his direction of the documentary The Look of Silence. He was previously nominated for his documentary direction of The Act of Killing (2013).

    The Act of Killing just came out two years ago which is hard to believe in context of how great that feature was but how equally if not greater this feature is from the same team. Oppenheimer has crafted a truly horrifying and emotionally wrenching documentary yet again following trully horrific people years after they committed such crimes. Where as Act of Killing had a playfulness to recreation the scenes of the past this film is an even more emotional journey as they interviewed are clearly affected by the previous documentary and possible quilt for their mistakes and Oppenheimer being able to capture this is such a feet. This is truly the years best documentary and a special one at that that I hope more seek out.

    OUTSTANDING ORIGINAL SONG:

    Fifty Shades of Grey, Love Me Like You Do” (Music and Lyrics by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Ali Payami, Tove Lo & Ilya Salmanzadeh)
    I’ll See You in My Dreams, “I’ll See You in My Dreams” (Music and Lyrics by Keegan DeWitt)
    Ricki and the Flash, “Cold One” (Music and Lyrics by Jenny Lewis & Johnathan Rice)
    Spy, “Who Can You Trust” (Music and Lyrics by Theodore Shapiro & Craig Wedren)
    When Marnie Was There, “Fine On the Outside” (Music and Lyrics by Priscilla Ahn)

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    RICKI AND THE FLASH, “COLD ONE” (MUSIC AND LYRICS BY JENNY LEWIS & JONATHAN RICE)

    This is the first win and nomination for Jenny Lewis & Jonathan Rice for their collaboration of the original song “Cold One” from the film Ricki and the Flash.

    While I had major problems with Ricki and the Flash one thing that I really took away from the film was the scene in which Meryl plays on a guitar the song “Cold One” to her clearly troubled daughter and ex husband. This moment nearly makes up for the rest of the average feature just how powerful it is in how simple it is. Streep just rocks the song with ease and it also is a plus that this is actually a great song that Streep is being allowed to perform in the film. Cold One firstly is a great song and it plays so well in the actual film that I couldn’t help but vote for this song from the team of Lewis and Rice.

    OUTSTANDING ORIGINAL SCORE:

    Carter Burwell for Carol
    Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury for Ex Machina
    Disasterpiece for It Follows
    Junkie XL for Mad Max: Fury Road
    Jóhann Jóhannson for Sicario

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    CARTER BURWELL FOR CAROL

    This is the second win and ninth nomination for Carter Burwell for his scoring of Carol. He previously won for Fargo (1996) and was nominated for scoring Gods and Monsters (1998), Being John Malkovich (1999), The Man Who Wasn’t There (2001), Adaptation. (2002), In Bruges (2008) & Where the Wild Things Are (2009). He also was nominated for the song “All is Love” from Where the Wild Things Are (2009).

    Academy Award nominee Carter Burwell is so the right thing Burwell should have been none as for a long time but now we can officially refer to him as this after he was nominated for his powerful score to Carol. The music like every part of the production reflects and falls back in on the central love story of this women. From the moment the strings start to play at the very mysterious and off opening of this film I knew I was in for some high class Burwell scoring. However his height comes in the final ten minutes of the film where he lets loose and fully embraces Philip Glass like music for this impactful and gorgeous finale to the film. Burwell has always been a Chameleon but his work in Carol is prove of how he can change his score up every time and it was just a pleasure to experince.

    OUTSTANDING ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY:

    Alex Garland for Ex Machina
    Alex Ross Perry for Queen of Earth
    Tom McCarthy & Josh Singer for Spotlight
    Paul Feig for Spy
    Sean Baker & Chris Bergoch for Tangerine

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    ALEX GARLAND FOR EX MACHINA

    This is the first win and nomination for Alex Garland for his original screenplay to Ex Machina.

    Who would have guessed that when it came to rewarding the best original screenplay of 2015 it would never get better then a film I saw all the way back in January 2015. Not to say that this year was weak with original screenplays but just the power of Ex Machina never wavered it from my top spot of the best original screenplay. Alex Garland has always been a great writer which is why I’m not surprised that his take on A.I. sci-fi turned out to be a success. Garland clearly is great with dialogue as most of this film whether with Ava or Nathan involves a lot of dialogue and it’s just so sharply written that you are always wanting to know more and when you do find out what you wanted to know it’s so expertly crafted that it creats such a great screenplay.

    OUTSTANDING ADAPTED SCREENPLAY:

    Screenplay by Andrew Haigh; Based on In Another Country by David Constantine, 45 Years
    Screenplay by Nick Hornby; Based on Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín, Brooklyn
    Screenplay by Phyllis Nagy; Based on The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith, Carol
    Screenplay by Marielle Heller; Based on The Diary of a Teenage Girl: An Account in Words and Pictures by Phoebe Gloeckner, The Diary of a Teenage Girl
    Screenplay by Bruce Wagner; Based on Dead Stars by Bruce Wagner, Maps to the Stars

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    SCREENPLAY BY PHYLLIS NAGY; BASED ON THE PRICE OF SALT BY PATRICIA HIGHSMITH, CAROL

    This is the first win and nomination for Phyllis Nagy for her screenplay adaptation of Carol.

    Carol, Carol, Carol! It all comes back to Nagy. She was friends with Patricia Highsmith later in her life, she adapted the love 20 years ago and she fought to get this film made for that long. I have great respect for Nagy for both sticking with this adaptation and also for her adaptation of the novel. Nagy making Therese an aspiring photography rather then a set designer was a stroke of genius and exanpanding upon the inner life of Carol the character really is what adaptating a novel is all about. The Price of Salt is a truly wonderful novel itself but Nagy really did the best job possible to adapt the novel in only the best ways. Nagy has now written her first film script to get to the screen and I hope people seek her out more cause seeing this effort clearly she’s incredibly talented.

    OUTSTANDING DIRECTOR:

    Sean Baker for Tangerine
    Andrew Haigh for 45 Years
    Todd Haynes for Carol
    Hsiao-Hsien Hou for The Assassin
    George Miller for Mad Max: Fury Road

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    TODD HAYNES FOR CAROL

    This is the third win and sixth nomination for Todd Haynes for his direction of the spectacular Carol. He previously won for directing and writing Far From Heaven (2002). He also was nominated for directing Velvet Goldmine (1998) and I’m Not There (2007) and also writing I’m Not There (2007).

    Todd Haynes is a singular talent at this point that when he puts his name forward on any project for me my expectations are raised and with Carol it was sky high and thankfully he blew me away over doing even my mile high expectations. Haynes has gone to the 1950’s before with Far From Heaven put Carol is such a different story and universe that it’s amazing and not surprising that he nailed it yet again. Haynes camera looms heavy over every shot of this film and really exposes the growing the love between these two women. Whether it’s the small details of closeups on the women intensity of the careful direction callbacks to film clearly inspiring the film are just so involved with the film and all together this feature is Haynes at the peak of his powers.

    OUTSTANDING MALE ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE:

    Tom Courtenay as Geoff Mercer in “45 YEARS”
    Michael Fassbender as Macbeth in “MACBETH”
    Tom Hanks as James B. Donovan in “BRIDGE OF SPIES”
    Michael B. Jordan as Adonis “Donnie” Johnson Creed in “CREED
    Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes in “MR. HOLMES”

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    TOM COURTENAY AS GEOFF MERCER IN “45 YEARS”

    This is the first win and nomination for Tom Courtenay for his performance as Geoff Mercer in 45 Years.

    The list of leading male performances in 2015 wasn’t long for me but when it came to choosing 5 these men stood above the rest and when it came to picking a winner Courtenay was my clear choice. Rampling is the star of 45 Years but her performance isn’t have as compelling without her equally great co-star Courtenay. He comes in and out of the film for long enough that I consider him a co-lead and when he comes on screen there’s just something about Courtenay’s performance that brings me into him. A moment that stands out for me with Courtenay is his word in the final scene of the film where just singing this song to his wife and the way he moves in this sign just is so captivating because even when this scene pushes him into a very unlikeable role Courtenay just is so charismatic that I apperciate the performance in an entirely different way then I had the entire film.

    OUTSTANDING FEMALE ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE:

    Cate Blanchett as Carol Aird in “CAROL”
    Rooney Mara as Therese Belivet in “CAROL”
    Elisabeth Moss as Catherine Hewitt in “QUEEN OF EARTH”
    Charlotte Rampling as Kate Mercer in “45 YEARS”
    Saoirse Ronan as Eilis Lacey in “BROOKLYN”

    AND THE WINNER IS:

    CHARLOTTE RAMPLING AS KATE MERCER IN “45 YEARS”

    This is the first win and nomination for Charlotte Rampling for her performance as Kate Mercer in 45 Years. She was previously nominated for her performances in Under the Sand (2001) and Swimming Pool (2003).

    Before I start to talk about how great Charlotte Rampling’s work is I want to just want to say thank you to all the film creators of 2015 who gave so many actresses great on screen roles that even to narrow it down to five names was hard. Some women that were overlooked but easily just as deserving included: Nina Hoss (Phoenix), Bel Powley (The Diary of a Teenage Girl), Sidse Babett Knudsen (The Duke of Burgundy), Juliette Binoche (Clouds of Sils Maria), Mya Taylor (Tangerine), Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road), Blythe Danner (I’ll See You in My Dreams), Brie Larson (Room), Arielle Holmes (Heaven Knows What), Cate Blanchett (Truth), Melissa McCarthy (Spy), Teyonah Parris (Chi-Raq), Sandra Bullock (Our Brand is Crisis) & Anna Kendrick (The Last 5 Years) to name only a few if you consider it a few. It really was a strong year for leading female performances.

    Anyway returning back to the winner Charlotte Rampling gives truly the greatest male/female performance of 2015 that I could go on forever talking about her turn. The film starts and ends with Rampling and she fully owns the screen every second she acts on it. The performance is so emotionally raw physically and mentally as we see the full body performance from Rampling due to her great direction from Haigh who lets the camera capture just about everything she is doing and really makes the performance even more captivating. Rampling’s Kate doesn’t explode emotionally really ever and when the character breaks down in the photo slide scene and ending dance scene it’s all down to Rampling and her wonderful gifts that make her work the years best. Rampling has been an underrated talent for decades giving such wonderful turns in films such as The Night Porter (1974), The Verdict (1982) and Under the Sand (2001) and how grateful I am for everyone who even bothered to watch this film because you get to see an actress at her peak fully owning every second of this film.
