Final 2016 Oscar Predictions

leonardo-dicaprio-8Final 2016 Oscar Predictions

I’m exhausted and ready to move onto the 2017 Oscar predicting. The day before Oscars, I was asked like I usually am by  a few people
“What’s winning Best Picture tomorrow?”

It sucks that the best I can give them is “either “The Revenant,” “The Big Short” or “Spotlight.”

We have just about as many predictable categories this year as we have unpredictable categories.

Anyway, check out our final 2016 Oscar Predictions below and check out our 2017 Oscar Predictions here.

Announcement: Oscar Live Blog

Hey Everyone!

Just like last year. I will be live-blogging the Oscars with category/ceremony updates, polls, links to music (scores, songs), and a monitor of our predictions.

That is when we will be also revealing our full list of 2017 Oscar Predictions in EVERY SINGLE CATEGORY (this has been exhausting putting together.)

Anyways, thanks for your patience this season, but we look to hit the ground running with fresh content for The Media 10 once award-season is complete.

WE WILL BE LIVE BLOGGING AT 7pm ET Sunday February 28th.

SN: PGA awards “The Big Short;” don’t listen to Oscar bloggers this season.

bigshottrailerSN: PGA awards “The Big Short;” don’t listen to Oscar bloggers this season.

Okay, yes, I know I’m technically an Oscar blogger too, but hell I’m telling you now not to listen to me as well. The best we can tell you is that “Best Picture” will be either awarded to “The Big Short,” “The Revenant,” “Spotlight,” or hell, even “Mad Max” has a chance.

The Producer’s Guild completely shifted the momentum from “Boyhood” to “Birdman” last year, but this year is incredibly different. “Spotlight” didn’t have too much momentum, and it has plenty of time to be that underdog the rises back up.

My two cents? Watch the guilds. SAG is “Spotlight” vs. “Big Short;” I’m calling “Big Short.” WGA comes around “Big Short” again, which is the easy adapted screenplay front-runner. But DGA? Is “Big Short enough of a directorial effort?  No, I don’t think so, but momentum can easily get McKay that award.

I think Miller is too bold for the DGA, as admired as he is, so that leaves Iñárritu. But will the Academy vote on a split? If DGA goes Iñárritu I think we can expect a split between the two “The Revenant” and “The Big Short.” But again, don’t listen to me. I know nothing. No one knows anything. Go to bed. Accept the mystery.

Listen to the Original Score Nominees!

Personal favorite has to be between “Carol” and “Sicario.” I loved Ennio Morricone’s score for “The Hateful Eight” as well, but wish that he had recorded more tracks for it. Personally would’ve nominated “It Follows” here.

We’ve picked some strong sample tracks, but go on Youtube if you want to listen to more!

Oscars: 2016 Winner Predictions and Full List

revenant-gallery-16-gallery-imageOscars: 2016 Winner Predictions and Full List

After “The Revenant” scored 12 nominations on Thursday morning, you have to start thinking that the HFPA favoring “The Revenant” to “Spotlight” wasn’t just a fluke.

We’ll watch and follow the momentum, there is still plenty of time before the Oscars, but we’ve seen this momentum change at the end all too often in the past few years. Primarily when it was supposed to go to “Boyhood” but went to “Birdman” and in 2011 when it was supposed to go to “The Social Network” but went to “The King’s Speech.”

Watch for the PGA and DGA winners as well to notice any significant momentum shift. “Spotlight” should win SAG and PGA, but I think all “The Revenant” needs is a push from a DGA win to secure its victory. If “The Revenant” wins PGA? Well, then it’s over.

Oscar: Final Nomination Predictions – 2016

spotlight-movie-2015-reviewsOscar: Final Nomination Predictions – 2016

Well here they are.

It’s been a very different year for award predictions, but thanks for baring with me. The nominations will be announced next week, and I feel very confident in my predictions.

At this stage, it definitely looks like “Spotlight” is our winner, however I’d watch out for a Director/Picture split. Potentially Miller could get away with murder here, overcoming a genre-bias Academy.

Here are our final predictions and stay tuned for more from us as the season continues.
