2016 Cannes Film Festival LineUp

neon-demon-elle-fanning-1 (1)2016 Cannes Film Festival LineUp

It’s that time of year again. Last year “Son of Saul” was screened at the Cannes Film Festival, though it lost the Palme d’Or to “Dheepan” the film went on to easily take home the Best Foreign Film Oscar.

If anything, for us award prognosticators, the Cannes Film Festival can narrow the field a bit. Last year we learned “Sicario,” and “Carol” would be big, but also learned Gus Van Sant’s “The Sea of Trees” would no longer be a factor.

What will happen this year? Well check out the lineup, then we’ll give a quick prediction: Continue reading

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.

Golden Globes: Updated Predictions – May 2015

the-walk-the-movieGolden Globes: Updated Predictions – May 2015

So much is going on in the world of film right now. Many potential award candidates have wrapped production, have had test screenings, and some will be premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival which starts Wednesday May 13th.

After an impressive showing at Cinemacon, we have our eyes on Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s “The Revenant.” On the comedy side we are really paying attention to John Wells’ “Adam Jones” and Jean-Marc Vallée’s “Demolition.” You can’t really resist Meryl Streep as a rocker in “Ricki and the Flash” either. Probably the only real lock here.

So here are all our pre-Cannes predictions. We will likely modify the Oscar predictions right after Cannes has concluded and the Golden Globes predictions will follow.

Golden Globes: Updated Predictions – March

We still have only movie categories predicted. For a reflection of what the television categories may look like check out our Emmy Predictions.

“The Danish Girl” and “Snowden” really appear to be in a strong position, with newly added award season release dates. Meanwhile in the, very scarce (as usual), comedy categories “Ricki and the Flash” seems baity enough to bring Meryl Streep her next Golden Globe.
