And the Nominees could possibly be...

*Bridge of Spies
*Brooklyn
*Carol
*The Hateful Eight
*Icon
*Joy
*Our Brand is Crisis
*The Revenant
*Spotlight
*Steve Jobs

While Brooklyn was slightly overshadowed by Me and Earl and the Dying Girl's success, both were incredibly well-received, and Brooklyn's period-romance story line is right up the Academy's alley. Plus, Sundance has done incredibly well the last few years (Whiplash took three), and with Fox Searchlight backing it, it looks like an early favorite. The Revenant has the bonus of coming from last year's Best Director & Picture winner Alejandro González Iñárritu. If the movie's any good, an early signs are promising, than it'll be to interesting to pass up. Spielberg has a pretty strong track record, with three Best Picture nominees in the last decade (he's only made five movies in that time), so I feel relatively confident with Bridge of Spies. The Academy have really had a love affair with David O. Russell the last few years; his last three films have a combined 25 nominates in a 4-year span (he himself has gotten five noms), so Joy seems like a strong possibility. They've also been Pretty good to Quentin Tarantino, who's last two movies were both nominated for the top prize. With Weinstein backing, The Hateful Eight looks strong on paper. The Weinstein's also have Carol, which boasts a strong cast and prestige premise.

Steve Jobs had a surprisingly tumultuous pre-production, with numerous delays and withdraws, but now appears to be right on track for an awards run later this year. It's got a strong cast and crew, and for all the mud-slinging that came out of the Sony hack, most comments about Jobs script were strong, so with solid campaigning it should be a force. Our Brand is Crisis has Warner Bros. angling for their next Argo and, based on the film's premise, they may have found it. Sandra Bullock has been on a roll the last few years, helping The Blind Side and Gravity into Best Picture, and her presence could definitely help here. I get a little fuzzy with my last two. Many haven't been talking about Spotlight, but it's an issues movie that, if good, could really strike a chord. Icon is in a similar position; while no one has really been talking about, if it pulls off Lance Armstrong's story in a compelling way, I could definitely see it making a run.

*Leonardo DiCaprio- The Revenant
*Michael Fassbender- Steve Jobs
*Ben Foster- Icon
*Jake Gyllenhaal- Southpaw
*Eddie Redmayne- The Danish Girl

Yet again, we're looking at another banner year for the Best Actor category. Redmayne has a role that screams OSCAR even louder than the one he won for last year. While I'm not very confident that he can go back-to-back, he'll still be a major force. While DiCaprio has been snubbed numerous times by the Academy, he's usually always been in the running, and this year he's got another golden opportunity. He's working with Alejandro González Iñárritu this time, a director who's last four movies have all gotten acting nods, so the odds seem to be in his favor. Foster's always been an actor on the cusp of breaking out, but this may finally be the year; he's playing Lance Armstrong in Icon. While the movie doesn't seem to be generating much early buzz (I could easily see it moving to 2016), I think if it's good enough, Foster will definitely be in the conversation. I mean, he's playing a tarnished, real-life character; even if the movie's not very good, there'll still be buzz.

Playing another polarizing real-life character is Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, in the creatively titled Steve Jobs. Fassbender was an outside-the-box pick to play Jobs, but assuming that he can nail Aaron Sorkin's mile-a-second dialogue, he should be fine. Will all of the question marks surrounding the film, if it wows, he should likely make the cut. If history tells us anything, it's that the Academy goes crazy for three things; biopics, diseases, and transformations. Jake Gyllenhaal's performance occupies the former. Gyllenhaal's been on a hell of a roll the last couple of years, with some strong work in Prisoners, Enemy, and last year's Nightcrawler, which he came incredibly close to a nomination for. He gained 63 pounds for the film (30 of which back from losing it for Nightcrawler), which is pretty damn close to De Niro's legendary 68 lbs. gain. Plus, the boxing genre has always been a fruitful one. Gyllenhaal's got a few shots this year (Demolition could very well end up being his awards-pic), but he looks pretty strong here.

*Don Cheadle- Miles Ahead
*Bryan Cranston- Trumbo
*Tom Hanks- Bridge of Spies

My Bold, Way Too Early, Out on a Limb Predicted Winner

And the Nominees could possibly be...


*Cate Blanchett- Carol
*Sandra Bullock- Our Brand is Crisis
*Jennifer Lawrence- Joy
*Carey Mulligan- Suffragette
*Saoirse Ronan- Brooklyn

Blanchett is an Academy favorite in a potential Oscar heavyweight. Throw in some period romance and a helping of lesbianism, and you've got the ingredients for a strong contender. Ronan received some incredible notices for her performance in Brooklyn and, considering that the film looks like a major force even this early in the game, will likely factor in. Lawrence has already managed to get three nods in just a few short years; she's a fan and voter favorite. She's been nominated for both collaborations with David O. Russell, and won her first for Silver Linings Playbook. If Joy strikes the same way their previous collaborations have, she'll definitely be a frontrunner.

Mulligan has probably the biggest Oscar-bait of the five women above; playing a woman fighting for woman's rights in the 1920s. Period piece, historically important, empowerment; she's got it all working for her here. While I'm a bit unsure about the film (it was announced like two years ago and is just now coming out), I expect here performance to be strong enough. Bullock is essentially my wild card here. While here role doesn't necessarily cry out OSCAR, neither did her last two nominated roles in The Blind Side and Gravity (though they did gently suggest it). I'm going out on a limb with Our Brand is Crisis, and if I'm predicting the movie itself to make the cut, I should probably go with the film's lead to make it in too. It'll be tough though, this is shaping to be the best year for this category in quite a while.

And the Nominees could possibly be...


*Diane Ladd- Joy
*Jennifer Jason Leigh- The Hateful Eight
*Rooney Mara- Carol
*Kristen Stewart- Clouds of Sils Maria
*Meryl Streep- Suffragette

David O. Russell's movies usually score numerous acting nods (Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle each landed in all four categories), and I expect a similarly enthusiastic response this time around. There are a few names to pick from, but I expect Ladd to be the one who lands here from Joy. She's been around a long time, and has yet to win after three previous nods. She's got a pretty strong narrative. Mara could easily be bumped up to Lead Actress, but something tells me that the Weinsteins will campaign her in supporting; it's the smarter move. She'd be a returning nominee in a period, lesbian romance, fronted by Harvey Weinstein. If she's good, she'll be a lock. Meryl Streep is Meryl Streep and considering that the Lead category looks pretty fierce this year, where she'll be in the running for Ricki and the Flash, the likely option will be for her work in Suffragette. It's reportedly a smaller role, but one with a big showy speech, and it's those types of roles that usually stick.

Leigh has been around for a while and has yet to be nominated, but I, and several others, expect that to change this year. She's the only female of the title Hateful Eight, and it'll likely be showy enough to gain a lot of momentum; Tarantino usually writes strong female roles, minus Django Unchained. Kristin Stewart has come a long way since the Twilight franchise, working primarily in indies, including this one. She's already take home one award for her performance in Clouds of Sils Maria, the César Award (becoming the first American actress to do so). If it's strong enough to overcome the distance, it's scheduled for a limited April release, then I think she can make the cut.

And the Nominees could possibly be...


*Idris Elba- Beasts of No Nation
*Tom Hardy- The Revenant
*Samuel L. Jackson- The Hateful Eight
*Michael Keaton- Spotlight
*Seth Rogen- Steve Jobs

The Hateful Eight has six other options here (I feel like it's a foregone conclusion that someone from the movie will make it in here), but my money's on Jackson. He's been around for a long time, and has only been nominated once (Pulp Fiction in 1994), and based on what I've heard about the script, he has the most showy part of the group, which help Christoph Waltz in Tarantino's last two movie win the category. Elba could easily go lead, but I think that Netflix will take the smarter route and campaign him here. In Beasts of No Nation, he plays a villainous army commandant overseeing child soldiers. Villains usually thrive here, with Heath Ledger, Javier Bardem, Christoph Waltz, and last year's winner J.K. Simmons all taking the gold for their menacing work. If the Netflix stigma doesn't loom too largely, Elba has a strong shot. Alejandro González Iñárritu's movie's have always done well in the acting categories, and that good luck looks to extend to another ceremony. The Revenant is said to be very much the DiCaprio show, but Hardy reportedly has a strong, meaty role, and this category has always recognized great scene-stealers.

Keaton's coming off a performance in Birdman that many, including this writer, believe should have won him a golden boy. Not a whole lot is known of the dynamic among the Spotlight ensemble, but I'm guessing that Mark Ruffalo is the lead actor. If so, that still leaves several other strong actors for the film to compete here, but with Keaton having an all-time great comeback last year, I think that upward trajectory will continue this year. Aaron Sorkin helped get Apatow alum Jonah Hill his first Oscar nod with 2011's Moneyball, and odds are looking good that he'll do the same for Hill's pal Seth Rogen. Rogen's likely to maintain his comedic chops as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniack, and in a more serious film like this will likely be, that can stand out. While it sounds like he'll only appear in the film's first third based on the film's structure (the film is comprised of three scenes set in 1984, 1988, and 1998, and Wozniack left Apple in 1987), if the role is substantial enough, that shouldn't be a problem.

*Matt Chapman and Joel Coen & Ethan Coen- Bridge of Spies
*Enrico Casarosa and Bob Peterson- The Good Dinosaur
*Quentin Tarantino- The Hateful Eight
*David O. Russell and Annie Mumolo- Joy
*Thomas McCarthy & Josh Singer- Spotlight

Considering that I'm predicting a big night for Bridge of Spies, it would be fairly odd not to have it here. David O. Russell's last three movies have all gotten script nods, and I expect the trend to continue here. Tarantino has won this category twice, and will likely factor in again here. Spotlight is likely to be shut out of most of the technical categories, but the screenplay category is usually where well-respected, but not necessarily loved, make the cut. Pixar's cracked this category numerous times and, while Inside Out has the more original concept, The Good Dinosaur seems to be Pixar's best shot a true comeback.

And the Nominees could possible be...

*Roger Deakins- Sicario
*Emmanuel Lubezki- The Revenant
*Anthony Dod Mantle- In the Heart of the Sea
*Robert Richardson- The Hateful Eight
*Hoyte Van Hoytema- Spectre

While Sicario might not be typical awards fare, Deakins is an Academy favorite who's yet to win after 12 nominations, seven of which have been in the past eight years (since that point, 2009 and 2011 are the only years where he's been absent). He's been nominated for the last three years, and his last effort with the film's director, Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) netted him a nod. Lubeszki is coming off of two straight wins, and he's reuniting with Birdman director Alejandro González Iñárritu here. The only film that we've seen any of here is In the Heart of the Sea, with a trailer released months ago. Judging by that brief trailer, Anthony Dod Mantle has really outdone himself this time. He's a previous winner for Slumdog Millionaire, and while he went un-nominated for his last Ron Howard collaboration, Rush, his work here looks too strong to be totally ignored. Robert Richardson has won this category three times before (JFK, The Aviator, Hugo), and nominated for his last two efforts with Tarantino. He made news when it was announced that he would be using Ultra Panavision 70 film, which hasn't been used widely since 1966, and netted numerous DPs Oscar noms during that time. Hoytema is probably my least confident pick (and I'm not very confident with any of these). Skyfall was nominated, but Roger Deakins shot that with his singular style. However, Hoytema has been doing some incredible work, he was close to a nod for Interstellar, and if Spectre is anywhere near as good as it's predecessor, it should get some strong buzz.

*Michael Giacchino- Inside Out
*Thomas Newman- Bridge of Spies

Brook got stellar marks for his Brooklyn score out of Sundance and, since I'm already predicting a solid night for the film, seems like a strong early bet. Newman is pretty much the Roger Deakins of the Score category; he's been nominated 12 times without winning, but that could change this year. After John Williams couldnt' do Bridge of Spies, Newman stepped in, giving him two potential noms. He's been nominated every other time he's worked with Pixar, and I expect the same to happen here. Giacchino won for 2009's Up, another Pixar film, and the only time he hasn't been nominated for a Pixar film was 2011's Cars 2. Barring some kind of catastrophe with Inside Out, Giacchino seems like a reasonable bet. Despite being in the industry for years, Burwell has yet to receive a nomination. With a period score on a Weinstein picture, this is likely his strongest bet yet.
