    Spotlight was hands down my favorite to win that year, with Brooklyn not far behind though it was a surprise that got in at all, it wasn’t ever considered a threat to win. In retrospect, Mad Max: Fury Road is obviously the bigger masterpiece, but Spotlight is a fantastic winner. Quiet, subtle (except for Mark Ruffalo). It’s still the best homage to journalism that I’ve seen in the last decade and there have been SO MANY since (The Post!)

    This is an absolutely fantastic take. Of course I don’t agree 100%, but that’s where subjectivity lies. But, yes, Spotlight was a worthy winner. Brooklyn was one of the best of the year yet so underrated. And Mad Max: Fury Road was the best (this is where we differ, but barely).

    And also here’s my ballot cuz people are doing that (I’m limiting it to what was actually nominated):

    Picture: Mad Max: Fury Road, Spotlight, The Martian, Brooklyn, Bridge of Spies, Room, The Revenant (wanted to love it, just didn’t, even after three or four watches), The Big Short (didn’t get it, but only fifteen when watched, so maybe a rewatch is in order)

    Director: Miller

    Actor: DiCaprio

    Actress: Larson (idc what shes done since she was still the best in this lineup followed by Ronan and Blanchett)

    Supporting Actor: Stallone (Rylance doesnt do anything sorry not sorry)

    Supporting Actress: Winslet (your only real choices are her or McAdams because the others are frauders 😊)

    Original Screenplay: Spotlight

    Adapted Screenplay: Room

    Why are people allowed to get away with Category Fraud? This was the prime year of category fraud with three of the 5 supporting actress nominees being frauders-Jason Leigh, Mara and Vikander.

    This is a paragraph from Gold Derby’s article:

    2016’s group of Best Supporting Actress nominees boast the highest screen time average (51 minutes and 46 seconds) in the history of both supporting categories. Leigh, Rooney Mara (“Carol”), and winner Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) concurrently earned spots on this list and all attracted controversy by appearing to have been placed in the wrong category. As crass outlaw Daisy Domergue, Leigh plays the only major female character in “The Hateful Eight.

    List Of Supporting Actress Nominess with the longest screentime in Academy History

    10.Jennifer Jason Leigh (“The Hateful Eight”) 57 minutes, 45 seconds (34.46% of the film)
    7. Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) 59 minutes, 37 seconds (49.88% of the film
    2.Rooney Mara (“Carol”) 1 hour, 10 minutes, 37 seconds (59.67% of the film)
