88th Academy Awards (Predictions)

Who should win:

Best Picture: Spotlight

Best Director: George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road)

Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant)

Best Actress: Brie Larson (Room)

Best Supporting Actor: Sylvester Stallone (Creed)

Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight)

Best Original Screenplay: Alex Garland (Ex-Machina)

Best Adapted Screenplay: Adam McKay/Charles Randolph (The Big Short)

Who probably will win:

Best Picture: The Revenant

Best Director: Alejandro G. Iñárritu (The Revenant)

Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant)

Best Actress: Brie Larson (Room)

Best Supporting Actor: Sylvester Stallone (Creed)

Best Supporting Actress: Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl)

Best Original Screenplay: Tom McCarthy/Josh Singer (Spotlight)

Best Adapted Screenplay: Adam McKay/Charles Randolph (The Big Short)

I suspect Mad Max: Fury Road (still thrilled by all those nominations) will gobble up most of the techies + editing, production design, costumes and makeup. In terms of win number it’ll probably come tops but Revenant will trump it to the big two (+ actor and cinematography). It’s a fine film, but the relentless banging on about challenging filming conditions is tiresome (this shit doesn’t come close to an Apocalypse Now or Fitzcarraldo), and I can’t help shake the feeling the overrated Iñárritu is about to win consecutive Oscars despite not warranting frontrunner status.

I might tweet periodically through Sunday night until passing out due to exhaustion/annoyance.
