Oscar: Updated Predictions – Post Cannes

maxresdefaultOscar: Updated Predictions – Post Cannes

“Carol,” “MacBeth,” “Inside Out,” “Sicario,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” are just some of the titles that had a strong reaction at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

Since last time (mid-April) a lot has changed. Still, there are a ton of potentially strong films that should show up on the festival circuit this fall.  We still feel strongly about “The Revenant,” “Steve Jobs,” “The Danish Girl,” and “The Hateful Eight” as well.

So below are our full predictions, and click here to always access our most updated predictions.
