Oscars

HAPPY OSCAR DAY!!! Final Predictions!!!

OscarsToday is Oscar Day!  With such a great year of film you would think there was no way the Oscars will inspire rage in me tonight, but don’t underestimate what they can do to me in a 4-5 hour telecast!  Chris Rock will host and the ceremony itself will begin at 8:30 p.m. EST on ABC, though people will be analyzing clothes in a banal manner for hours prior.  Here are my predictions for the big categories:
Best Picture: The Revenant (rooting for Spotlight)
Best Director: Alejandro Inarritu (rooting for Tom McCarthy)
Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio (rooting for Michael Fassbender)
Best Actress: Brie Larson (rooting for her!)
Best Supporting Actor: Sylvester Stallone (GO Mark Rylance!)
Best Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet (rooting for her!)
Original Screenplay: Spotlight (rooting for Ex Machina)
Adapted Screenplay: Room (rooting for The Martian)
Animated Feature: Inside Out (there’s no other choice, period)
Original Score: Star Wars Episode VII (This is the award I care most about all night.  It’s John Williams’ 50th NOMINATION, and possibly his last, though I wish him decades more, plus this was by far the year’s best score.  GO JOHNNY!!!)
John Williams, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Star Wars

By the way, Netflix has two documentaries nominated, so by the end of the night, that DVD rental company that nearly went bust a few years ago might have Emmys and an Oscar!
