    Interesting article. I guess as we get closer to the awards, we will get more of these including the Brutally Honest ones from THR.

    *siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh*

    And a lot of people didn’t watch it because of the subject matter, because it’s so tough.”

    If voters don’t want to watch a film because of the subject matter, then they need to be replaced with people who will. Ugh!

    Dreaming is good, isn’t it?
    Everybody knows Brie will win!

    Yes, dreaming is the best 😉 and duh, I’m one of those boring persons that always talk about stats and facts so of course I know Brie will win. I just said “Go”. Why boo Sly? Maybe he’s one of the most dreadful and limited “actors” in my lifetime(Is there an any role that he didn’t play the meathead?) and this time he’s just riding the coattails of his co-stars success. And yep, he’s also a pretty terrible person. Not that it matters, but it does. Oscars and other entertainment awards will never ever be about merit, it’s all just the promotion; so just like most I’m rooting for artists that I like more. Their likability and rootability can be increased by their merit and their contribution to cinema in that particular year, of course.

    I understand what you mean. You are right about Oscars.
    But Charlotte and others’s likability goes down this year.
    And for Sly I just read something about dog abuse.
    Yawny

    So he doesn’t like stallone’s acting but votes for the guy with the cheesiest, Hammiest, Oscar bait monologue in the most Oscar bait movie of the year. Sounds about right

    I would vote for Rylance in a second.  Great actor, genius actor.  Loved him in Wolf Hall and thought he was amazing.  I think Hardy’s nod is just a kind of “hello, there, handsome” thing.  Not a likely win.  Stallone will win on sentiment though.  Also liked what they said about DiCaprio.  I thought he was amazing and disappeared into that role very, very well.  It’s also about the first time I didn’t even think about him looking like a boy, he was so convincing.  I wouldn’t be unhappy with Rampling but Larson is going to win.  Vikander sounds solid but I still wouldn’t be surprised if Winslet snuck in.  Only thing makes me think it’s Vikander is that she wasn’t nominated for Danish Girl in BSA at BAFTA and lost probably because of that.  That’s what is going to make her too formidable to overcome.
    BP I think will be Spotlight.  I hope it will, but maybe the votes will split between it and TBS too much.  In which case, Revenant sneaks by.  Hell, who knows? BD probably Inarritu just for having the balls to do what he did and somehow come out on top anyway.

    The only interesting thing about this article is the voters opinion on the foreign language nominees. I’ve been wondering if Mustang has any shot at all. Yes Son of Saul is the obvious choice and I am still predicting it but there has to be a surprise one year right? Mustang has a lot of industry support and I’ve seen actors like Reese Witherspoon and James Franco publicly praise the film. It was my personal favorite of the nominees I’ve seen and I wouldn’t be surprised if it pulled off a surprise win.

    I want to know what Slyvester Stallone did to this person for them to have this opinion about him.
