    Just be sure to remember that Morricone, lock that he is, is not even that worthy for his score in H8ful 8.  He just lifted pieces of different previous scores like “The Thing” and injected them into the movie for whatever silly reasons Tarantino thought he should.  But then I absolutely hated that movie for too many reasons.

    Yes, because DiCaprio is totally worthy for his brilliant turn in The Revenant… The Hateful Eight might not haven been the movie many people expected it to be (I personally loved it), but the score was great and deserving.

    I would say that, of all categories, right now (February 6), the only true locks are Leonardo di Caprio, Brie Larson and Inside Out in Animation.

    Best Picture: The Big Short vs. The Revenant vs. Spotlight

    Best Director: McKay vs. Iñárritu vs. Miller

    Best Supporting Actor: Stallone vs. Bale

    Best Supporting Actress: Vikander vs. Winslet (Dark Horse: Jennifer Jason Leigh)

    Best Original Screenplay: Spotlight vs. Ex Machina (They could completely shut Spotlight out)

    Best Adapted Screenplay: The Big Short vs. Room

    Best Cinematography: The Revenant vs. Mad Max: Fury Road (Dark horse: Carol)

    Best Film Editing: Mad Max: Fury Road vs. The Big Short

    Best Sound: Mad Max: Fury Road vs. The Revenant

    Best Sound FX: Mad Max: Fury Road vs. Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Best Visual FX: Mad Max: Fury Road vs. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Dark horse. The Revenant)

    Best Production Design: The Revenant (Legendary Jack Fisk) vs. Mad Max: Fury Road (Dark horse. The Danish Girl)

    Best Costume Design: Sandy Powell, but… Which movie? They always go flashy so I doubt The Revenant or even Mad Max show up.

    Best Makeup and Hairstyles: Mad Max: Fury Road vs. The Revenant

    Best Score: I don’t see Morricone as the frontrunner. To me it could be Carter Burwell. But I guess it’s Morricone vs. Burwell.

    Best Song: No idea. It’s a mixture of big names and great songs so whoever wins, we’ll know why they went for it (Big name like Diane Warren and Lady Gaga, or great song like Youth…).

    Best Documentary: Amy vs. The Look of Silence

    Best Foreign Language Film: Son of Saul vs. Mustang

    Best Short Films: I honestly have no idea but I feel there’s no clear favorite. “Ave Maria” vs. “Stutterer”… Stuff like that, you know? Like… Best short of the bunch vs. Universal feelings short? I hate when they go politically correct just because of the universal audience they have to sell and get, and sometimes the true short masterpieces suffer. “Avant que de tout perdre” losing, for example, to “Helium” (Gross).

    It’s not shocking Ruffalo got a nomination. The voters wanted to nominate someone from the Spotlight boys, and Ruffalo had the shouty, ACTING scene so he was the one they remembered the most. Whether he deserved it is another issue (I thought he was basically fine, but unremarkable), but the nomination didn’t surprise me at all.

    Spotlight is the most overblown “contender” ever. Of course the press loves it because it’s a movie about them, the general public and the academy I don’t believe are so high on it. I think it’s a toss up between Big Short and the Revenant

    Who started this Flop title trend? It’s not creative and doesn’t even apply to the movies it’s being used for. I agree Mark Ruffalo isn’t winning, but clearly the actors care about Spotlight. It won SAG ensemble over the PGA winner.
