Who else /oscars/ here?
They're mostly bull but i still care about them. What'll win Best Pic 2015?
Probably Spotlight. I can't wait to see the Oppression Olympics this year
Self-fagging to say i hope The Revenant wins and Innaritu will bring a new golden age of cinema upon us.
That said The Danish Girl will probably get it because a tranny-biopic with Eddy Redmayne is the oscar commitee's wet dream
The Revenant has it in the bag. It will win Best Picture, Director, Actor, Cinematography and probably something else too
>a film bashing christianity will win Best Picture
It'll be lucky to get a nomination
>emily blunt and benicio del toro
>god tier soundtrack
>god tier suspense and tension
It's personally my favourite movie of the year, but it's a personal opinion. Most of my friends love it but some hate it because of the ending, but in my opinion the ending is perfect.
In an ideal world it would go as follows:
Best Cinematography: The Revenant (obviously)
Best Lead Female: Brie Larson (Room)
Best Lead Male: Michael Fassbender (The Revenant)
Best Supporting Male: Tom Hardy (The Revenant)
Best Visual Effects: Star Wars: TFA
Best Sound: Bone Tomahawk
Best Editing: The Hateful Eight
Best Director: Ryan Coogler (Creed)
Best Film: Bone Tomahawk
You're right, Inside Out will get it even if it wasn't that good.
In fact, we had quite a lot of animated movies this year. I looked at the list of movies that could compete for that Oscar, there are like 30 of them, but they were so shit that I forgot they existed. The main competition will be Minions, Good Dinosaur, Inside Out and arguably Anomalisa (but it's too mature for an animated movie at the oscars, it will lose).
This category should be wiped off the face of the fucking map.
All it does it give Disney an automatic Oscar (Pixar if one of their films are nominated, Disney animation in general if not) and all it does is show the utter apathy voters have for animation. Thier idea of quality is whatever entertains their little Suzi or Jimmy.
>bunch of filthy rich motherfuckers patting themselves on the back and giving each other golden trophies
I love this fucking show. I want Leo to lose so we'll get yet another film of him going all-in.
Since 2007 the only year a Pixar or Disney film did not win was in 2011, and that's because neither company had a nominee.
It's almost like since Pixar got butt hurt that Happy Feet bear Cars in 2006, Disney has gone all out to ensure it never happened again.
Spotlight is the easy frontrunner. Haven't see Revenant yet but it looks like the only other real contender.
Carol and The Danish Girl will split the gay vote and neither of them will come close.
The Big Short
Bridge of Spies
I think those are the only obvious Best Picture candidates. Room, Inside Out, Trumbo, and The Hateful Eight might sneak in there too.
Cate Blanchett will most likely get Best Actress even though she really didn't do anything noteworthy in the movie. Brie Larson deserves it but she won't get it because she's too young and not "newsworthy" like Jennifer Lawrence. I think for Best Actor it will be Leo vs Redmayne vs Hanks vs Carrel vs Cranston. Tom Hardy is a lock for Supporting Actor. Don't know much about the Supporting Actress crop. The Big Short will take Best Adapted Screenplay for sure, but Room might be a shock win. Best director will probably go to AGI again honestly.
I dunno I'm just spitballing.
As long as Saoirse is going to win for best actress or Rooney for best supporting actress I will be happy.
Huge Action was the best host this past decade and you know it!
This "Sicario is amazing" meme needs to die.
The script was utter dogshit. It looked great, the actors were admirable, solidly edited, atmospheric score. But the writing... you could tell the writer has amateur at best knowledge on the subject. It was all very hokey and sensationalist, with dialogue that wouldn't be out of place on a Law and Order episode (This is the land of wolves). And then there were the contrivances. That Jon Bernthal scene was such a mess from a writing standpoint. The motherfucker happens to have that specific wrist band linked to the drug money in a previous scene? Fuck off. And all the characters other than the three mains were just wastes. I give this movie a 6/10 based on the atmosphere, performances, and other little things, but this won't win any awards and rightly so.
Mad Max or Sicario will win best film
DiCaprio will get nominated for best actor
Tranny Redmayne will win best actor because oscar bait film and sjw's
JJ Abrams will win best director
Mad Max will win best film editing
Star Wars will win a bunch of technical awards
Matt Damon in space will win best screenplay
Sicario is pretty amazing but it probably won't get any nominations besides Cinematography. Spotlight will win.
I disagree with Tom Hardy as a lock for supporting. There were a fuck ton of excellent supporting performances this year. Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Idris Elba, Mark Rylance all put in Oscar worthy supporting performances too.
Dull, unimpressive, played the same character he played in The Paper 20 years ago
Are you fucking kidding? He talked like a retard and his yelling scenes were awful. What the hell was that accent supposed to be?
Pretty decent but no way he'd beat Hardy. The Academy won't recognize Netflix originals this year anyway.
Holy shit you're right. I completely forgot how amazing he was in that movie. I think it's between him and Hardy then.
Possibly. I still think my favorite screenplay of his is Eternal Sunshine, which Michel Gondry directed, and that remains Gondry's sole good film. I haven't seen Synecdoche or Anomalisa yet though.
Will he ever work with Spike Jones again?
Do you have a copypasta folder or? How does one save a pasta, paste to a notepad and save in a folder? And when you see an opportunity to use it you go to said folder and search for the appropriate pasta? People really can't put more than 2 sentences together so they take someone elses opinion and shitpost it to death just because?
It baffles me really
>The Academy won't recognize Netflix originals this year anyway.
Yes, because it is completely unprecedented for The Academy to nominate a Netflix produced film.
