Most notably, “The Revenant” has finally screened and pretty much confirmed our suspicions – it’s great.
The only downside is the potential to not be “Oscar-friendly” the way “Spotlight” is. I think the boundaries of Oscar will be truly revealed this year depending on how much the Academy hangs onto films like “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Hateful Eight,” “Star Wars,” and many more.
This is going to be an exhausting awards season. Since I’ve covered these (about 5 years) it hasn’t been this unpredictable, at least not to me. Still excited to see these great films and to enjoy our geekier version of fantasy football.
