    Who cares abou metacritic (and 77 is a good score anyway)….Academy loves this film and its all that matters. It was expected to land 7-8 nominations and got 12. Nobody predicted Costumes and production design. Hardy and effects were long shots. And film has 2 oscars locked up already (leo, lubezki)

    Its gonna be interesting. Revenant can win BP because its gonna be alternative for voters to smaller political movies like Spotlight and TBS who might split votes btw.

    It is difficult to split votes when films are ranked 1-8.

    This movie doesn’t deserve sh*t, The Revenant put me to sleep, Iñarritu is a pretentious, award freak director, he really wants to win more oscars, I don’t know how people likes this movie, ok, it has some great moments like the bear attack, but the rest was BORING, slower than Spotlight. I don’t know how this thing get nominations for:

    Best Production Design: how is this possible? who is the nominee, mother nature?
    Best Special Effects: really, just for the bear attack?
    Best Film Editing: with its long takes, it deserve to be snub like Birdman.
    and most of the rest of nominations…

    I can’t believe DiCaprio will win the oscar for this hackjob of a movie, he has done way better in past years, how is constant grunting and screaming oscar worthy? Stay away from Iñarritu, Leonardo!!!

    It’s time for the Academy to award a non oscar bait movie like Mad Max: Fury Road, every nomination was worthy for that movie, but that won’t happen, so I don’t mind if Spotlight beat this thing in the main categories.

    Best production design and visual effects were total nonsense. It’s like when Hereafter got in just for that nothing special-never-seen-before tsunami scene.

    Eh, Revenant has a strong shot at BP regardless of personal opinion. I mean just last year Birdman won showing that decisiveness is not that big a deal if front runner is weak.

    There are actually much more cuts than you think there are, and it’s a testament to the visual effects and smooth editing that you did not notice them.

    @ jjjmoss:

    Yeah, I could see it going either way. I think its stock rises much higher if it loses BP. Inarritu will be massively overrewarded if he wins 5 Oscars in 2 years.

    Between Mad Max and The Revenant which one would you choose if you have to Freeman?….It must be like picking between two kind of poisons to you xD

    Look, It is totally respectable that you don’t like a movie, but you tend to cross a line in your comments: The expressions that you use to disqualify them are really insulting and disrepectful to the people who appreciate those movies. 

    “I hate that movie”…just leave it there.  

    But I agree with something: I think Inarritu’s movies are too pretentious. I hope he doesn’t win.

    I’m Inarritu’s #1 hater so soon as I see this film I’ll be back here. But keep going. This is a deserved backlash!

    Or, since actors are the biggest branch, the only Sag Ensemble snubbee to win Best Picture is Braveheart. Aside from how its director was its star so giving him the win would still be giving an actor an Oscar…the odds were stacked in his favor. Sense & Apollo which won a bunch of stuff missed Director, Babe had missed the DGA nom, which just left the foreign-language film which…it’s the Oscars so it wouldn’t win.


    Both Spotlight & Big Short, meanwhile, have Ensemble, DGA, and Directing nods.

    ‘The Revenant’ was sent super-late to the SAG committee, so that’s worth noting. Of course, Leo made it even with that obstacle.
    If we want to talk about acting support, it’s worth mentioning how AMPAS was pretty much the only awards body to nominate Tom Hardy, so clearly they responded to the film’s acting. Of course, you can mention how they went for Ruffalo despite having a spotty precursor record as well…

    ‘Spotlight’ missed ACE drama and then missed director at BAFTA. ‘The Big Short’, on the other hand, has not really missed anything…

    I predict that The Revenant will lose 10 categories and win 2 oscar for best sound mixing and best actor. No way in hell that the Academy going to reward Innaritu again after his 3 oscar win last year. Spielberg had 3 and he lost every single time he was nominated. That will happen again to Innaritu although his movie was so visually stunning. Unfortunately,that’s how the Academy works.

    For posterity’s sake, here’s some fact vs. fiction (aka Glass didn’t even have a son and he didn’t kill Hardy’s character);
