    I just looked over the editors predictions and for the top 7 categories (Picture, Director, acting, writing) everybody has the exact same things predicted.

    I so hope there is a shock (not so the editors are wrong but just for the fun of a surprise.!)

    I’m still tempted to predict Bridge of Spies for best original score and The Danish Girl for best costumes… I mean, the consensus predictions just can’t be all right, there is always an upset somewhere…

    We’re much more likely to see an upset in the smaller categories, maybe big short gets best editing or bridge of spies/ Star Wars gets best score. Don’t see any acting upsets

    I have Kate Winslet winning but that is not really going out on a limb. I think the race between her and Vikander is much closer then the odds at Gold Derby are telling us.

    I think it is pretty obvious Alicia Vikander is winning not solely not for Danish Girl but for that plus Ex Machina and the other movies she was in combined.

    Can predicting Revenant for visual effects be considered an out of a limb prediction? I just can keep ignoring my heart anymore, which is telling me it’s (also) winning there. I will stick to the “best picture nominee always wins here” rule, and Revenant’s bear clearly caught up a lot more attention than the Mad Max practical effects.

    I did it.  Wasn’t going to, then I couldn’t figure out who to click Rylance or Stallone and I thought to myself I always place somewhere between 300th & 800th here…so what the hell – I made it my super bet.

    I’m going out on a limb in plenty of categories. I don’t care about placing among the top predictors. I love going out on a limb and I don’t even regret it. After all, it should be fun. What won’t be fun, will be my mood when the awful movie of Innaritu wins. 

    Anyway, I’m predicting Spotlight for picture, Youth for song (I love that song!), I’m torn between Mad Max: Fury Road and The Danish Girl in costume design. Are voters cool enough to pick the costumes Beaven created for Miller’s film?

    I wonder whether to be really crazy and predict Miller.

    Could somebody who was following the race closely in 2001 tell me whether the situation back then was similar? The Gladator year? Because this is a year of shockers.

    How isn’t that going out on a limb? Even Crash had more overall guilds’ support. 
    Spotlight has zero Globes, no DGA, no PGA, no ACE nod, no BAFTA directing nod.
    It underperformed nearly all season long. It did well with critics and Oscar nods.
    SAG and WGA alone don’t make it look like a sure thing. Most pundits have it third.
