Oscar Predictions 2016

My friends and I always predict the Oscar nominations every year, and boy oh boy is this one a doozy! Firstly, I don’t see any harsh snubs (aside from the entire black race), although as I reminisce on the year in films, I’ll undoubtedly come up with a fe– Ex Machina! Of course! That should have been nominated for Best Picture for sure, as it’s one of my Top 15 of the year. (The Next Morning–) Oh! and Sarah Silverman in I Smile Back! What the hell?!

AND, how about some of the cast from Straight Outta Compton? Ice Cube Jr. is essentially killing it as his Dad.

Now, these are my first impulse predictions of the winners.

1/2 a point if it’s one I wanted to win, a full point if I called it.

To read: The ITALICS are the films I think should win, and the BOLD are the films I believe that will win.Read More »
