Oscars: Post TIFF Oscar Predictions

2B8A1F6D00000578-0-True_story_The_movie_focuses_on_the_real_life_investigation_by_B-m-42_1440118129495Oscars: Post TIFF Oscar Predictions

The festivals aren’t quite over yet. The New York Film Festival will kick off with Robert Zemeckis’ “The Walk” on the 25th. Meanwhile, in this comforting interlude, we decided to go ahead and give our predictions a much needed makeover after these past revealing weeks.

What have we learned?

  • “Spotlight” is the real deal
  • Kaufman’s “Anomalisa” will rival “Inside Out.”
  • “The Danish Girl” was good, but with some lukewarm response.
  • “Beasts of No Nation”  and “Steve Jobs” are strong contenders, but are not likely are winners.
  • “The Hateful Eight” test screened to strong reactions, has an intermission “Gone with the Wind” style.
  • “The Martian” sounds like a strong crowd-pleaser, should nab some tech attention.
  • “Sicario” is a strong sleeper pick, as is “Son of Saul.”
  • “Room,” after a strong couple of showings, will likely earn Brie Larson an actress nomination.
  • Cate Blanchett will rival Cate Blanchett after two strong performances in both “Carol” and “Truth”
  • “Suffragette,” “Freeheld,” “Our Brand is Crisis,” and “I Saw the Light.” all fall off quite a bit after low to mixed responses.

Oscars: Updated Predictions – August

TWC — The Hateful Eight

Oscars: Updated Predictions – July

With the new, stunning list of films premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, we thought it was about time we go through and update our Oscar Predictions.

Truthfully though, not much has changed. “The Revenant” still looks strong, The Weinstein Company still has “Carol” and “The Hateful Eight.” “Star Wars” seems like it could nail a lot of the technical categories along with Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies.”

Once TIFF and Telluride kick off we will have a whole new enlightenment on what is to come, but for now here are our best guesses:

“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.
