  • Sammy

    Theron up for Best Actress !!!

    Spielberg for Director !!

  • Lexie Grey

    I think is safe to say Mad Max will be the movie with more Oscar wins this season

  • fishnets

    They really love JLaw. And Tom Hardy.
    Tatiana Maslany fad was one and done.
    So who’s odd man/woman out? Since they nominate 6.
    Fingers crossed they don’t chicken out with BP and give it to Spotlight even if MMFR wins almost everything else including directors (this has become an annoying fad among critics awards).
    Hopefully The Bear gets SFX nom at the Oscars too.

  • lincolnwuzrobd

    Jurassic World 5 Nominations. Talk about your high standards

  • fishnets

    That’s greta except that they nominate 6. One isn’t making the line-up. For example, Theron needs to start winning to kick out the weakest of presumed Top 5.

  • Jerry Grant

    Very nice noms. I hope the Academy spreads the wealth this nicely. Glad the three movies I’m rooting for (Room, Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn) are all well represented. Definitely glad to see Spielberg in director.

    (Why no Kristen Stewart for supporting actress?)

  • Sammy

    But Theron is in a BP frontrunner !!!

  • JP

    They will get just one wrong in BP as usual. And it will be Inside Out, which they didn’t have the guts to nominate.

    Do your job animated branch! You can have a deserving representant in the BP lineup.

  • fishnets

    Doesn’t guarantee a nom. ROTK and Slumdog were BP frontrunners with ZERO acting noms. MMFR is still more of a tech marvel that doesn’t need acting noms to win BP. It’s the director show.

  • FitzND

    So basically anyone who made a movie or was in a movie or tv show last year is nominated somewhere? Cool awards show.

  • fishnets

    Pretty much.

  • superkk

    lets go Theron!!!!!

  • fishnets

    I’m super happy that BDH’s run in high heels resulted in a nom while Vanilly’s whining that she’s a better superhero than Paul Rudd resulted in her snub and his nom. :)

  • fishnets

    She’s winning Best Actress in Action. Sealed and delivered.
    Leo was robbed for Best Actor In Action.

  • fishnets

    these awards are my favorite. They are irrelevant and the ceremony is such trainwreck it must be seen to be believed. It’s too much fun.

  • Cameron

    Was The Revenant really an action film though?

  • http://www.theparisreview.org/ Bryce Forestieri

    “Best sci-fi/horror film,” lol good one, “critics.”

  • Philipp

    Yes, the categories make no sense.

  • G

    I really hoped Tremblay would make Best Supporting Actor… :( what are his odds to make the Oscar cut?

  • GregoireNYC

    They have more categories than the Satellite Awards. The real question is — who DIDN’T get nominated?

  • Cameron

    Cinematography looks pretty locked in. I expect it to look the same at the Oscars, sans The Martian.

  • GregoireNYC

    They have to produce the Critics Choice trophies in China because they buy them in bulk.

  • Cameron

    Pretty good I think but I figured he would be confined to the ghetto of child performances here.

  • GregoireNYC

    I finally watched it last night and think it’s the most astounding work of art produced by human beings in 2015.

  • John

    Thoughts of interest:

    Sicario love (yay!) but no Del Toro …. bummer.

    No Will Smith, Michael Caine, or Ian McKellen (sad times for me).

    Yay for Charlotte Rampling.

    Yay for Charlize twice!

    No Elba. Interesting.

    No Elizabeth Banks anywhere. Surprised, really. Thought she had a real shot for an Oscar nom 2 weeks ago. But she seems to not be in the picture.

    Carol love everywhere EXCEPT screenplay. Weeeiiiirrrrd.

    YAY Mad Max love.

    YAY The Revenant love.

    YAY for a bit of Brooklyn resurgence.

    Trumbo …. well …. I see it later this morning. I’ll see if these crazy noms aren’t so crazy.

  • Ivich

    So they loved everything about Mad Max: Fury Road but its score?! I don”t get it. Junkie XL got robbed.

  • John

    agreed!!!

  • Rodrigo

    Brooklyn, Carol, The Revenant, Room, Sicario and Spotlight! So thrilled that Brooklyn and Sicario made the top ten.

    Those feel like the top 6 for best actor.

    Thrilled that Rampling made it. If Mara and Vikander stay in supporting, I think she’ll get the nomination. Carey Mulligan is done.

    Ahhhh so happy that Tom Hardy and Mark Ruffalo got nominated — finally! Benicio Del Toro is done as well. Still the most unpredictable category.

    I never thought Helen Mirren would be so safe. Those feel like the top 6 as well though for supporting actress.

  • No shoes

    Wow, when you throw out nominations that have no slot at the Oscars (“best action actor”) Mad Max, Carol, The Martian and Revenant(ick) are in a virtual dead heat! This is exciting! With Mad Max and The Martian in there this year may finally be the year genre pics are going to DO IT!

    Go Martian!

  • Cameron

    Ted Danson for the Fargo series.

  • Cameron

    Can you really imagine someone saying “Academy Award nominee Junkie XL?”

  • Cameron

    Ted Danson didn’t make it in the TV Miniseries Supporting Actor category.

    Just a quibble.

  • No shoes

    No it was misery porn.

  • Trev

    I’m sure the BFCA think they’re very cool for all the Mad Max nominations (which are nice), but that’s the only interesting thing about their nominations. Everything else is basic. The BFCA was always a joke, but this was such a wasted opportunity.

  • No shoes

    They would love it. It would make them feel hip.

  • fishnets

    yes. Don’t listen to No Shoes, he/she is Leo hater. The Revenant also has action scenes that are more talked about than action in movies nominated in Best Action.

  • Cameron

    Assuming they want to be hip in the first place.

    Then again, what is hip?

  • Cameron

    I don’t like it when awards ceremonies add in all these Best Action/Sci fi/Horror/Heartbreaking Cancer Movie categories because I think it reduces great films to nothing more than a genre. I have no doubt that The Revenant has some incredible action set pieces but it’s a cheap generalization.

  • No shoes

    Charlize needs to stop being strong and female and start whining about how it was the hardest shoot she’s ever done and she had to sleep in a fake dead cow or something like that.

  • Jamie Teller

    What about “Academy Award WINNER Three 6 Mafia”?

  • fishnets

    Would be nice if Sasha posted the live streaming link so we could all laugh together in Jan when awards are given.

  • Cameron

    Touché. I still think it’s a longshot though. Not impossible, but a longshot.

  • fishnets

    I agree and I think that Heartbreaking Cancer Movie category should be added pronto. That’s brilliant.

  • fishnets

    LMAO!

  • fishnets

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzz Change her CD.

  • No shoes

    And fishnets is a DiCaprio defender (and, probably not coincidentally,a Fassbender basher). Even when DiCaprio makes up crap about “hard” his shoot was. Lol, they’re trying to sell it as “arty” action but it’s hard brutal slog to absolutely nowhere. The attempts at profundity fall absolutely flat and there is minimal emotional resonance, even when it’s ginned up with a phony dead kid. Talk about a dull old chestnut!

  • Wayman Wong

    * Hard to look through the list without thinking: ”Who got the 6th slot (and will get snubbed at the Oscars)?” Again, maybe I need new glasses, but why do Editing and Costume have only 5 nominations?

    * No Will Smith, Idris Elba, Michael B. Jordan or Benicio del Toro. If this is an Oscar precursor of the acting races, will we be seeing an all-white ballot again? Oscar emcee Chris Rock will have a field day with that! … However, the Broadcast Critics does have some diversity in Young Actor/Actress: Abraham Attah, RJ Cyler and Shameik Moore. But there are no girls nominated! … And ”Straight Outta Compton” is up for Best Ensemble.

  • No shoes

    Charlize has a CD? Wow, she is multi-talented! Give her the prize. :)

  • Jamie Teller

    Okay, assuming 1-2 nominees from each category don’t make the Oscar list, here’s what I think WON’T make the cut:

    Picture: Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, and/or Sicario
    Director: Spielberg
    Actor: Depp
    Actress: Lawrence or Theron
    Supporting Actor: Hardy (or maybe Ruffalo)
    Supporting Actress: McAdams

  • lincolnwuzrobd

    Heartbroken that Ian McKellen’s chances are getting slimmer and slimmer

  • john smith

    F#ck the Oscar if they don’t also include “Inside Out” in their BP nominations. I’m speechless that critics, of all people, have left “Inside Out” it in favour of films we wont even remember in a years time. What is the point of expanding the BP category if they wont recognise the most imaginative and best film of the year?

  • David

    I love Michael Shannon’s Oscar Chances now, With a SAG nom, GG nom, and now a Critics Choice nom I think it makes him a lock for a Oscar Nom!!!

  • lincolnwuzrobd

    Looks like Youth is the biggest snubbee

  • http://www.theparisreview.org/ Bryce Forestieri

    I never bought its chaces and especially after seeing it.

  • No shoes

    He is such a great actor. Love him. He could definitely go all the way in the toughest field.

  • Cameron

    My prediction:

    Paul Dano – Love & Mercy
    Idris Elba – Beasts of No Nation
    Mark Rylance – Bridge of Spies
    Michael Shannon – 99 Homes
    Sylvester Stallone – Creed

    Possible Runner-Up: Mark Ruffalo – Spotlight

  • Wayman Wong

    Nice to see the additional love for ”Brooklyn” in Costume and Production, but it deserved Ensemble, too!

    No Best Picture nominations for ”Steve Jobs,” ”Straight Outta Compton” or ”Trumbo.”

  • fishnets

    definitely, prize for Charlize CD and trash can for your “hardest shoot ever” track. You whine about that more than the person you accuse of whining. :)

  • No shoes

    I think Sicario is the weakest for picture, otherwise in agreement.

  • http://www.theparisreview.org/ Bryce Forestieri

    I’m so strangely excited to see REVENANT. There’s no day when I don’t think I will surely hate it and then quickly revert to “wait, maybe I will love it.” Certainly doesn’t sound half-assed.

  • superkk

    the thing is she was in this spot years back for young adult.. one of my favs….top 6 missing out on a nom. its her time now. its an iconic performance for an iconic movie this year..it just makes sense.

  • lincolnwuzrobd

    Haven’t seen it yet myself but This Must Be the Place, after an excellent first half, went completely flooey in the second half and The Great Beauty was a botch from beginning to end, so I can wait patiently until it gets to these parts

  • lincolnwuzrobd

    The emergence of Michael Shannon as a front runner is the most pleasant surprise of the nominating season

  • Cameron

    Sicario will only get tech/artistic nods. Even a nom for del Toro seems like a long shot at this point.

  • Wayman Wong

    Jane Fonda might’ve had a shot at Supporting, but was crowded out by category fraud. Is this a precursor of where Mara and Vikander go on the Oscar ballot? … I can’t believe it, but the Globes might have more integrity for ruling correctly that Mara and Vikander should be in Best Actress.
    … And I guess the Broadcast Critics dismissed all the earlier critics’ prizes for Kristin Stewart.

  • Velimir Petkov

    Looking at these, The Revenant did VERY well. It matched Mad Max Fury Road in Best Picture, Best Director, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Makeup and Hairstyle and Best Visual Effects.

    The Revenant also got Best Actor, Best Original Score and Best Supporting Actor.

    Mad Max Fury Road got Best Actress, Best Production Design and Best Costumes..

    Assuming, that they both add the two sound categories, both films are looking at 11 Oscar Nominations!!!

    And The Revenant is back to 80MC..

  • No shoes

    I keep trying to forget about DiCaprio’s whinging but when there’s a new cover story just today with the “hardest shoot ever” quote he just won’t let me!

  • Torah87

    ”Brooklyn” will make it to Oscars over some that are current frontrunners…wait and see!! ”Bridge of Spies” will likely be nominated too given Hanks’ and Spielberg’s star power!!

  • No shoes

    They are historically a very good predictor for BP.

  • http://viverdecinema.blogspot.com.br Gustavo H. Razera

    I confused those with my own Oscar predix.

  • http://viverdecinema.blogspot.com.br Gustavo H. Razera

    Unfortunately.

  • john smith

    It’s highly unlikely that will happen. I think the most any film will get this year is nine nominations. The film with the most nominations is likely to be “Carol”. I also think “Bridge Of Spies” is been underestimated and has a good chance to rack up big number of nominations, but will win none except Best Supporting Actor for Rylance.

  • fishnets

    or anything. LOL last year when they gave Keaton Best Actor and Best Actor in Comedy. Redmyane’s face was priceless.

  • disqus_xxwDaBtW3O

    Highly unlikely. BFCA has 6 nods in their categories (except for Picture) – compared to AMPAS 5.

  • fishnets

    I hate Fassbomb and I’m on Anyone But Fassbomb for the win just like you are on Anyone But Leo one. So we can team up and Support Damon and Cranston Rises, since they have a shot at talking out Leobender. :) I must say I’m deeply upset by Damon’s SAG snub. WTF?

  • Wayman Wong

    Fishnets is right. Leo was robbed. But this way, his support is concentrated in Best Actor.

  • No shoes

    Mad Max, The Martian, Spotlight, Carol, and Revenant are in a virtual dead heat when potential Oscar slots are considered. Which is really exciting! I know it’s kind of on a roll but it surprises me to see The Big Short crop up in BP when it has so few “important” noms.

  • fishnets

    yes, because it was one press conference and different trades post the same interview (from the same press conference) with the same quote at different times. hence illusion that someone’s talking about it 24-7. You’ll get tons of that with every movie. Star wars is going to have the same quotes from one press conference published by 10000 trades and sites.

  • KingTut

    SHOCKED not to see Trumbo in BP. What, after SAG and whatnot.

  • fishnets

    Why? it’s got Best Ensemble just like SAG. Best Ensemble =/= Best Picture. It may indicate what actors like overall but there’s no equation mark precisely because movies that aren’t ensemble pieces don’t get SAG Ensemble noms.

  • fishnets

    Number of noms means nothing. American Hustle had biggest number of noms and won zero.

  • KingTut

    Lol, I don’t give a fuck about that movie. I hope it gets nowhere near the Oscars

  • fishnets

    Something isn’t right with Revenant’s RT score. Number of positive reviews grew and yet RT score is still 82%. There are 51 reviews, 42 fresh and 9 rotten and the score is the same like it was when it had 38 fresh and 9 rotten.

  • fishnets

    It makes sense but there are other factors. Like unclear Mara and Vikander placement.

  • fishnets

    Cranston Rises is in.

  • Nick Johnson

    I wouldn’t put it past the Academy to fuck over Shannon like they did Jake G last year. Jake was nominated virtually everywhere except the Oscars. Hopefully that doesn’t happen to Shannon though. *fingers crossed*

  • john smith

    I don’t mind if either leo or Fass win. I don’t like Damon, nothing personal, but I just don’t find him an Oscar worthy actor and certainly not for “The Martian”.

  • Cameron

    AND The Color Purple.

  • Wayman Wong

    It’ll do better at Oscars. Hollywood actors vote on a film about Hollywood actors. And they can show off liberal cred by knocking the blacklist. Could it be more self-congratulatory? 😉

  • john smith

    I believe “The Big Short” is the sleeper for BP and the biggest threat to “Spotlight”. Missing out for BD is going to hurt its chances but it does seem like it could get consensus if “Spotlight” loses support.

  • No shoes

    There is almost always a delay on RT, and that’s not a huge statistical difference.

  • john smith

    It could be the acting is top notch but the film overall isn’t good enough. that happens often and BP and great acting linked but are not always together.

  • Wayman Wong

    ”The Turning Point” and ”The Color Purple” each got the most nominations (11) and lost ’em all.
    Still, it’s better to be nominated and in the hunt than to be shut out before the race has begun.

  • john smith

    Four extra fresh, I wonder why it its score hasn’t jumped up?

  • Alfredo

    Interesting nominations…as usual though the BFCA tries to predict what the Academy will nominate- hence the ridiculous amount of slots per category.

    Few thoughts…
    Where in the hell is Idris Elba for Supporting Actor?
    Thought they would show Creed and Straight Outta Compton a little more love.
    I have no idea who will win Best Supporting Actress. It’s literally anyone’s prize at this moment.

    Thoughts on Kristen Stewart…
    I meant to post this on the other thread about her chances for a supporting actress nod but didn’t get a chance to. I may be mistaken, but unless a performance is so big that it cannot be ignored campaigning must be done. Now I don’t know Ms. Stewart but based off the few interviews I’ve seen her in she comes off as somewhat awkward and uncomfortable.This doesn’t necessarily make anyone WANT to vote for her. I know it should be based solely on the performance but this is the nature of the game.

    On the TV side…
    Yay for Krysten Ritter! I loved Jessica Jones. I was upset she didn’t get a nod at the Golden Globes which usually pick out there choices.

  • fassfass

    Mad Max is going to kick ass at the Oscars this year. If there’s a God, MM will win Best Picture!

  • john smith

    This is total whitewash. Don’t worry Elba will be at the Academy wards.

  • fassfass

    Steve Jobs hasn’t made it to most Best Picture nomination lists, so, I have doubts this great film will even be nominated in that category come Oscar time. :/

  • No shoes

    Actually this was a one on one sit down with Wired, in which here are a number of fabulous DiCaprio comments. Not only the repetition of the infamous “hardest shoot ever” line, but also claims that he is frequently in full-on mortal danger. “I nearly died more than once”, apparently including the time “a shark jumped into my cage”. Doubtless one of the famous high-jumping, star-chewing Sharks of Madagascar. There is also a very funny article at GQ (I think) in which he discusses how “incredibly painful” it was – to crawl on the floor!

    Classic.

  • Cameron

    Still think Spotlight will win BP but Mad Max will have a ball in the tech categories. Maybe even Director.

  • No shoes

    Big Short winning best picture? Lol, I’ll eat my hat. Minimal tech noms.

  • Milli b

    Good lord how many categories do they have ?? Who nominated Hardy for Mad Max?? What is this

  • Milli b

    Not while Spotlight exists lol

  • fassfass

    I’m not inspired by all the Spotlight love. It’s an ok film, not bad at all, but just a very safe all-American choice. I want the Best Pic win to have a little inspiration and surprises.

  • thevofl

    Glad to see The Walk get some love for SFX.

  • Sam

    The lack of ‘The End of the Tour’ makes me sad. What a great with and what an amazing performance by Jason Segel. It’s my favorite performance of the year so far. The love for The Leftovers in the TV section makes me happy though, that show is the best show that I’ve seen in the last two years.

    For some reason I think Beasts of No Nation will somehow be nominated for Best Pic, even though it might not seem likely.

  • Cameron

    Haven’t seen it but from what I’ve heard about it it seems like a solid good but not great. I can’t imagine it will be my favorite of the year.

  • Rodrigo

    I agree 100%. It is definitely the most underrated movie for 2015. I thought it was so well done and I thought Segel would be getting more recognition.

  • fassfass

    I saw Spotlight at TIFF. It was entertaining, I enjoyed it, but I’m just gobsmacked by all the overwhelming, slobbering love for it. Very perplexing.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/JasonMovieGuy jasonmovieguy

    These are starting to look more and more redundant now. Like every year, we start off saying “it’s a wide open race, we don’t know whose gonna make the cut” to “predictable”. Excellent films, but it’s rubber stamping for sure. The acting races still remain a mystery, with many people fighting ‘for that fifth slot’. Nice to see Theron get in- I hope Oscar remembers.

  • Cameron

    Maybe it just feels important enough to award?

  • Milli b

    Lol i just want him to win to hear that being said in the Oscars. But he probably submitted as Tom Holkenberg. Boo!

  • Milli b

    Exactly.

  • http://www.theparisreview.org/ Bryce Forestieri

    You could write them an angry email see if that works.

  • Milli b

    How good is their history with BP prediction? Cos if it is bad let anything else win.

  • http://www.theparisreview.org/ Bryce Forestieri

    I missed my deadline for final predictions. I think I’m skipping them altogether this year. It’s hard to get any work done down here.

  • chris land

    I haven’t watched The Big Short yet, but I totally agree with you. When I think about it, The Big Short is just as good or better in the things that make Spotlight a BP contender :
    showcasing an important current issue (need for investigative journalism vs. financial crisis, things haven’t really changed) +
    a good cast full of well-liked, well-known actors doing a good job (I’m assuming on TBS), working off a good script +
    good box office, which is extremely likely for TBS.

    Plus, I think The Big Short has more potential for being a “fun” film. Not that Spotlight’s not fun, but I hope Adam McKay brings a little something funny.

  • Velimir Petkov

    I can see The Big Short getting Best Adapted Screenplay and maybe Best Film Editing nominations over Bridge of Spies and that’s it. I am happy for Tom Hardy and Theron. I hope that they get in at the Oscars. It will speak to the respective strength of these two movies..

    Trumbo will get a big FAT zero nominations… Good riddance!!!

  • RossoVeneziano

    No Big Short for Hair&Makeup is the only shocker. All those wigs weren’t enough.

  • keiferschultz

    I’m continually dismayed when looking over the Best Actor nominations lists by all of these various organizations and never seeing Ian McKellen’s beautiful work in Mr. Holmes. I don’t give a fuck. For me, this guy gave the best performance of the year in a film that is simply not getting the attention it deserves this awards season. Same comment re Laura Linney as Best Supporting Actress in the film.

  • john smith

    Perhaps you’ve not been paying enough attention, but “The Big Short” has a SAG Best Ensemble and Best Supporting Actor noms and 4 GG noms including Best Picture Comedy/Musical, two Best actor in a Comedy/Musical and Best Screenplay. “The Big Short” should the big favourite to win the Comedy/Musical category and especially since it big rival, “The Martian”, is category fraud. Note the Best Ensemble SAG and the fact that only one film has won without getting a nom. That means “Spotlight is the big favourite but if it were to miss, then that puts “TBS” at the front with its SAG Ensemble nom as well as its potential wins at the GG. I believe TBSA will win big at GG and take away “The Martian” chances at the Oscars. “The Martian” is category fraud and should be snubbed by GG.

  • guest

    Re Stewart:
    Campaigning has to be done by the studio. IFC didn’t even send out DVD screeners.
    How is she supposed to campaign for a movie, most voters have not seen?

  • http://www.theparisreview.org/ Bryce Forestieri

    Preach!

  • Sammy

    Last year BFCA nominated Angelina Jolie for Best Director !!!

    I am really worried about BoS and Steven Spielberg !

  • john smith

    I can see how popular “TBS” is with the industry and how it ‘s shaping up to be a big challenger and a party crasher. I think some people will notice that when it wins Best picture Comedy/Musical and Best Actor for Bale. “The Martian” is a category fraud and will lose to TBS.

  • Henry

    Charlize Theron is nominated twice, for Best Actress and Best Actress in a Action movie

  • Sammy

    Now we can comfortably say Mad Max is the new Gravity with No Screenplay nod…!!

  • George Golden

    Just give it up already..

  • Cameron

    Spielberg won’t make it in. BP is still a viable possibility though.

  • Henry

    Spotlight is not a safe bet, Mad Max can beat it. Especially because it has more prestigious people behind it.

  • Milli b

    Mad max does not have a script. The director himself said they had no script.

  • Jamie Teller

    I actually want Bridge to be nominated because it’s one of the best films of the year, but it has very little traction outside of Mark Rylance (and maybe a technical category or two). I’ll be glad if it upsets, though.

  • Cameron

    But that pesky Academy with their weird predilection for ignoring great movies…

  • Jamie Teller

    Bridge doesn’t have much traction outside of Rylance and Brooklyn not much beyond Ronan (and probably Adapted Screenplay). That was my reasoning.

  • George Golden

    Thank you..I don’t get the hype for the Martian and Matt Damon.He is not on Leo’s level at all.

  • Cameron

    Source? Not saying you’re wrong but AACTA nominated him for the screenplay.

  • Sato

    Since when “prestigious people” mattered at the Oscars? They couldn’t even give Hitchcock an Oscar.

    Having “prestigous people” behind a film doesn’t mean it is the best.

  • NA

    More interested in knowing what misses Best Picture.

    Locks:
    Spotlight
    Carol
    Mad Max: Fury Road

    Nearly there:
    The Revanent
    Room
    The Martian

    Should be there:
    Bridge of Spies

    Could go either way:

    The Big Short

    Brooklyn

    Anomaly:
    Sicario

    Sicario is definitely not getting nominated. It easily fits the Nightcrawler category. Hoping Bridge of Spies doesn’t go the Saving Mr. Banks way but I’m guessing it won’t (and shouldn’t). Spielberg, duh.

    Big question marks are Brooklyn and The Big Short. One or both could get in. The latter has the SAG ensemble. Now for the film that’s not here and will be nominated a la American Sniper, Philomena and Amour. Films with passionate support. Only Inside Out or The Hateful Eight come to mind. I’m guessing ultimately The Big Short and The Hateful Eight get in because men.

    Contenders as of now:

    1. Spotlight
    2. Carol
    3. Mad Max: Fury Road
    4. The Revenant
    5. The Martian
    6. Room
    7. Bridge of Spies
    8. The Hateful Eight
    9. The Big Short
    10. Brooklyn
    11. Inside Out

    Eyes towards AFI, PGA, DGA and BAFTA now. I’m guessing the picture will get clearer for The Hateful Eight, Big Short, Brooklyn and Inside Out.

  • http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3722778/ Arnaud Trouvé

    BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
    The Assassin

    The Second Mother
    Son of Saul

    This looks like your Oscar lineup 😉

  • Gregory

    Thank you!

  • Gregory

    Does anyone find it interesting that Hateful Eight still isn’t racking up Best Picture nominations even though it seems to be a shoe-in for Screenplay and cinematography? Here it was also nominated for best ensemble. So if a movie has one of the years best scripts, which is immaculately filmed and awesomely acted, why is it not translating to Best Picture love? I know the movie is divisive, and I haven’t seen it, but I’m just trying to look at it from this analytical angle.

  • fishnets

    They are irrelevant.

  • Sato

    Sure they’re better for choosing Keaton over Redmayne but it’s very obvious they like to predict what the Oscars would go for. And these are the CRITICS… They should be setting the standards instead of bragging they got the Oscars right.

  • fishnets

    nah, I don’t care that much.

  • fishnets

    well, hypothermia is full mortal danger.

  • fishnets

    true.

  • fishnets

    That’s true. because they belong to WB they were so obviously delaying negative reviews for Hobbit movies. It was hilarious.

  • Hal Jordan

    I don’t think Mad Max is a lock. The awards of the industry were not announced.

  • fishnets

    This year, nobody is Oscar worthy in Best Actor. fact.

  • Hal Jordan

    Mad Max it’s far from Gravity

  • Hal Jordan

    And Ex Machina too

  • Milli b

    He said it in one of Youtube interviews wait i ill try to find it.

  • Milli b

    What flawless taste.

  • Hal Jordan

    The critics choices are good predictors for best picture. If be eight nominees this year too i think will be:
    Spotlight
    The Martian
    The Revenant
    Carol
    Room
    Brooklyn
    The Big Short
    Bridge of Spies, Mad Max: Fury Road or The Hateful Eight

  • Hal Jordan

    I want so much The Second Mother between the list. I am from Brazil

  • NA

    I was of this opinion until today. It’s got serious momentum. Maybe I’ll change this once it misses PGA/ DGA but let’s face it, it won’t.

  • Rodrigo

    Rams is missing. :(

  • Hal Jordan

    Yes, PGA/DGA can change everything

  • Milli b

    Well I wasn’t entirely correct. Here from http://io9.com/the-making-of-mad-max-fury-road-we-shot-one-scene-fo-1704025550

    What’s is like to shoot without a script (almost)?

    Charlize Theron: Well, I feel like us actors kind of set out this rumor that there was no script. I wonder, I haven’t talked to George about, but I wonder if he’s upset about it. Because there was a script; it just wasn’t a conventional script, in the sense that we kind of know scripts with scene numbers. Initially it was just a storyboard, and we worked off that storyboard for almost three years. And then eventually, there was a kind of written version of the storyboard, which just felt like a written version of the storyboard, again not like a script. I think the hardest thing for us, as actors, to get our heads around, was that the movie really was one big scene. Usually you have scenes and this was one big scene. So we shot one big scene for 138 days. That was tricky because everyday you show up and you don’t really know where you are in that scene. George was really at understanding what he wanted. And the movie was in his head. After a while ,we all understood that we just had to let him do his thing.

  • Sammy

    What?? Mad Max is the favorite to win both the DGA and PGA.

  • NA

    Yes it will. My actual wish is to see Inside Out nominated for Picture and Director after PGA/DGA but I’m trying not to jinx it. Keepin’ it on the DL.

  • Hal Jordan

    No, Spotlight is

    You think the AMPAs will go with Charlotte Rampling over Jennifer Lawrence? I mean it would be very deserved but i doubt they will do it.

  • Renard N. Bansale

    No “Feels Like Summer” for Best Song? You better not screw up by snubbing it, Academy.
    >__<

  • Torah87

    The majority of AMPAS voters are OAPs so films that are set in 1950s-1960s Brooklyn, Carol, Bridge of Spies are likely to resonate. Plus, they always vote for previous winners and nominees.

    I was at Camerimage in Poland a few weeks ago and walked into Rams knowing absolutely nothing about it. It was fantastic and should definitely be in the awards discussion this year.

  • Damiansport1

    It’s outrage they didnt nominate Inside Out with 10 spots? Hope AMPAS does!

    Thinking the same. At the end of the day it’s down to favouritism, I guess? With the odd exception. Although, Rampling may be a hit with the older AMPAS voters, but who knows…..

    Yes it is. Also that QT is missing from a lot of the best director list. It must have not hit the right vein with the critics. That does not mean he will not be nominated for the Academy obviously.

  • Milli b

    Rampling missed out on SAG and GG. She is also not very well known as much as it pains me to say. Looks like an uphill battle for her.

  • Rodrigo

    I was the same way … I had no idea what to expect but it was just so good. I’m hoping it’ll make the final 9 list.

  • Torah87

    Possibly…but who knows….this awards season is filled with uncertainty. I’m not placing bets just yet with the exception of one or two.

  • Milli b

    I know Son of Saul is kind of a lock but i wish Mustang would have been in talks more. It was beautiful.

  • Milli b

    DGA ??

  • keiferschultz

    I agree. Redundancy. I hope AMPAS will look beyond the current batch of never-ending lists that are beginning to look more like the Golden Globes.

  • keiferschultz

    Preach!

  • Wayman Wong

    McKellen wouldn’ve needed a push from the critics’ awards to put him on the map. And that’s what he had when he did ”Gods and Monsters.” He won the NBR, L.A. Film Critics, Indie Spirit, Broadcast Critics, etc.

  • Cameron

    Assuming they even USE all 10 spots…

  • Cameron

    WHOS YOUR FRIEND WHO LIKES TO PLAAAAY

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/ZachMG MrMindGame

    Boy, they really liked Blackhat, didn’t they?

  • Cameron

    Aside from all the Sicario love this is a damn fine series of lists.

  • Wayman Wong

    Anyone know if Hardy is campaigning? If not, he oughta be with THREE movies getting awards buzz.
    He should get spiffed up (fashion-wise) and make the rounds ASAP.

  • Milli b

    Sicario is probably not getting a BP nod so yes Inside Out in place of thet. If they actually do nominate 10 movies and not less.

  • helicon424

    I think Best Actress is between Saoirse Ronan and Brie Larson. Ronan has picked up her fair share of critics awards with Larson not far behind. Do you think Ronan’s age will be a problem at the Oscars next year?

  • john smith

    The BP winner almost always wins. “Spotlight” is big favourite for BP so that makes it favourite for BD too.

  • Jerry Grant

    Something we all need to prepare for: Adam McKay getting nominated for Best Director. Over who? Over Ridley Scott. Get ready for it.

  • http://viverdecinema.blogspot.com.br Gustavo H. Razera

    You wish.

  • Scott Robert

    I feel like Mad Max is locked and, honestly, the dark horse to win the whole thing. Academy voters who are older may go for it to reward the franchise and old-school action filmmaking – the “steak eaters” as Sasha calls them. Younger voters will be into it, too, since it’s just such a badass movie. Some will be turned off by the action/violence perhaps, but in the post-Dark-Knight-snub world we live in, I can see momentum building to honor a genre film that’s been executed to masterfully. And if Spotlight continues to lead the pack, people will start to ask “well what else?” What else indeed. Which film could Kings-Speech itself ahead Spotlight? All this can be said for Martian, too, but Martian is the “safe” choice to honor genre, where as Max is the more artsy and ballsy choice I think.

  • Milli b

    Makes sense.

  • Torah87

    They’ve both won their fair share indeed, but Ronan seems to be winning the more prestigious ones. Ronan’s performance in ”Brooklyn” is really mature and she resembles an old Hollywood star (as many say). Having been last nominated at 13, I feel this is her year. She certainly has advantages with the AMPAS.

  • Richard

    Wow! Mad Max leading the nominations, and Rectify gets some TV award love (very underrated show). This award season is awesome so far!

  • Milli b

    Also Mad Max has the whole thing about a director battling against so many things and returning to a franchise he created after 30 years and churning out this great shit. They should have gone overboard with the Prodigal Son Returns thing during promotion. So many missed opportunities with their promo.

  • Milli b

    Didn’t Anna Paquin win when she was 11? lawrence also won when she was 22 or 23. The Academy has no problems with honouring young actresses.

  • Benutty

    Holding out hope that Mad Max will beat Spotlight (because Spotlight is not indicative of how great of a year in film this has been).

  • Jerry Grant

    Haven’t seen Big Short and have no stakes in it, so no I don’t wish, I just predict.

  • Wayman Wong

    I believe Ronan’s racked up 5 awards, including N.Y. Film Critics, so far. Larson’s won 3, including NBR.
    And Ronan’s age (21) is a plus. Oscar voters (especially older men) love ingenues.
    Plus, Ronan got her 1st nomination for ”Atonement” when she was 13!

  • john smith

    Yes, the draw for me and I think a lot of film critics too, is because MMFR is artsy and ballsy. MMFR isn’t normally the kind of film I that would think is worthy of winning BP or BD Oscar. It is unique and that’s what action films can do if they tried to take more risks.

  • Torah87

    I agree and nominated child stars have gone on to win Oscars in their early 20s. .

  • helicon424

    They were both amazing performances so I probably won’t be mad if one wins over the other. Which will most likely happen at this point.

  • Chris Price

    Anyone else find it weird that The Hateful Eight consistently wins Best Screenplay citations yet fails to make the Top 10s of any group who lists 10? How can a movie be the best written of the year yet not be at least one of the 10 best? I know these are nominees and it may not win here, but it is a trend I’ve noticed in critics’ awards this year.

  • john smith

    Paquin won for supporting. The youngest Oscar winner is Tatum O’Neil for Paper Moon.

  • john smith

    Sometimes it’s just about pedigree. Everyone knows Tarantino writes great screenplays because he won two Best Screenplay Oscars, so they nominate him even if they don’t like the film overall.

  • Chris Price

    Yep, Seattle rocked. The Man doesn’t want to give them a critics’ group because they’d rock the boat just like this!

  • Wayman Wong

    Given their history, many Oscar voters aren’t that imaginative. You’re lucky they see the screeners!

  • Chris Price

    Seems odd to me that your film would be one of the 5 best written yet not be cited as one of the 10 best of the year. Because a screenplay is, you know, what a movie IS.

    And, honestly, people have done more than nominate him. He’s straight up won some Best Screenplay awards and the film doesn’t show up on that top 10.

  • Koleś

    Max does have 13, yes. But if you scratch the “funny ones” you are left with 9 “real ones”, same as Carol and Revenant. Martian has eight, same as Spotlight. And I guess if it was still down to 5 movies for BP at the Oscars, that’s exacly how the lineup would look like.

    – Mad Max: Fury Road
    – Revenant
    – Carol
    – The Martian
    – Spotlight

    and right now I’m guessing all five will be nominated for BP. The ones that will probably join them are

    – The Big Short (at this point a near lock, may win Comedy and the Globes)
    – Room (no Ensemble nod from SAG, but two not one individual nods)
    – Brooklyn (safe choice for many)
    – and something tells me the ugliest of all – Trumbo (about the industry, the line-up is not complete without a solid, down to earth, wikipedia style biopic with a strong (usually male) lead).

  • john smith

    I think McKay will have squeeze into the BD if TBS is to win BP. It could well be Scott but he could squeeze out Inarritu instead.

  • Wayman Wong

    ”Mad Max” is leading because its tally is inflated by categories that won’t be at the Oscars: Action, Sci-Fi.

  • Chris Price

    Also, this Critics Choice list is particularly egregious since they ALSO awarded a nod to it being one of the 5 best acting ensembles of the year, along with score and cinematography. So, let me get this straight: it’s one of the 5 best written and best acted movies of the year (not to mention one of the 5 best shot and scored), but not even one of the 10 best films overall of the year?

  • john smith

    I take your point but you look at the opposite and one of the outstanding films this year, MMFR, doesn’t have strong screenplay. Without a screenplay there’s no film but you need great direction to make a great film.

  • Wayman Wong

    I’ve seen ”The Big Short” and have no stakes in it; I don’t see that prediction happening.

  • Chris Price

    I agree that a strong directorial vision is key to most great films (although there are definitely exceptions to that rule). But the CC DID nominate H8 for Best Cinematography and Best Score, along with Best Ensemble (and Best Hair & Makeup). If they had given it a Production Design nod they would’ve basically awarded the entire production across the board, cast and crew, including the building block of the whole thing, the Screenplay. It just seems funny to me, that’s all. Mad Max DOES have a fantastic ensemble, insane cinematography, excellent production design and a great score, just like Hateful Eight. And once you see the movie, I think you’ll agree it has a strong directorial vision, especially considering it comes from the eyes of the guy who wrote the damn thing.

  • john smith

    I think you are right that. Even though it doesn’t have strong reviews, “The Revenant” is showing up everywhere due mostly to the films stars. I believe that everyone is underestimating “Bridge Of Spies” which doesn’t only have the Spielberg factor but other big hitters like Tom Hanks and the Coens. Always assume a Spielberg film will be nominated for Oscars until it isn’t.

  • Wayman Wong

    More to the point, a number of female child stars have been nominated & won Oscars.
    But no boy has ever won. The youngest guy to win an Oscar is Timothy Hutton, 20.

  • Torah87

    I guess that’s down to the majority of male voters. Usually men don’t win Oscars until they’re in their 30s.

  • Chris Price

    I still think Bridge Of Spies is a safe bet.

  • john smith

    Not all the films nominated got those nominations that Hateful 8 got, but I would take this nominations across the board as evidence that film is itself great. I think there many of these nominations are about pedigree and not necessarily rewarding the best work. You might like something about a film and some filmmaker but it doesn’t mean you liked the film as a whole. Some films are loved but it isn’t strong across the board compared to other no so great films. Tarantino has many fans but they know the film isn’t great, so they are trying to push him for screenplay because they think that has best chance of nomination.

  • Koleś

    I agree 100% when it comes to “Bridge of Spies” and it almost made my list, but when it comes to that movie I’m waiting for what the Guilds have to say, especially the PGA. I also agree that one should never underestimate the power of Spielberg and finally, the movie is pretty darn good :). I guess it might ride the same bandwagon as Brooklyn – it is the elegant, distinguished, classic filmmaking. A movie that makes you feel good. I guess there is a high chance it will get nominated, but not if it doesn’t get that PGA bump. Without that it doesn’t have enough going for it.

  • Chris Price

    The movie IS great. I’ve seen it twice.

  • john smith

    Then why isn’t it nominate anywhere?

  • Chris Price

    It is nominated everywhere, for screenplay, which again seems strange to me. It’s a MUCH better film than Django Unchained. My best guess is that QT lost a few people with the police stuff, or the movie simply arrived too late to build a case, yet QT still gets in for Screenplay due to, as you said, “pedigree”.

  • Jerry Grant

    My guess would usually be that they feel compelled to credit it — that is, they admire it. But they don’t like it all that much as a whole. Still, I agree it’s odd.

  • John

    OK, after these BFCAs, I’m know thinking that AMPAS may go:

    Actor:
    Leo
    Fassbender
    Redmayne
    Damon
    McKellen/Cranston

    Actress:
    Blanchett
    Mara (I could see AMPAS and BAFTA doing this)
    Larson
    Ronan
    Rampling

    Supp. Actor:
    Rylance
    Stallone
    Ruffalo
    Shannon
    Hardy
    (but I could easily see Elba, Dano or Keaton in there at someone’s expense)

    Supp. Actress:
    Vikander (I think AMPAS will go with the Supporting narrative)
    Winslet
    Fonda
    McAdams
    Mirren
    (should be Banks )

    That’s how I see it right now.

  • Jerry Grant

    We’ll see. It’s just that the evidence is piling up that there is way more support for it than anticipated. Also, don’t underestimate actors voting for directors who work with actors. A big flashy cast like The Big Short — also, McKay is well-known in the business, and he has shifted genres somewhat, which is itself admirable. Watch out for it.

  • John

    Looking at the noms and potentials with AMPAS, I think a “5” – if this was a year of “5” – might be:

    Mad Max: Fury Road
    The Revenant
    Carol
    The Martian
    Spotlight

    Pretty kick-ass if you ask me!!

  • Jeff

    There are just too many nominees here between all the different categories. Its like the Golden Globes on steroids with lots of silly categories.

  • John

    Yes, Trumbo got a SAG Ensemble (it’s EXACTLY) the type of film to get one.

    But I’m thinking that it’s mehh reviews + no GG Best Film nom + no BFCA Best Film nom means it won’t sneak into the 8/9.

  • Bob Burns

    too many awards.

  • John

    I also believe that Bridge of Spies will still slip-in with 4-6 noms. Good reviews, good box office, people love that film, and it’s an AMPAS type.

  • George Vargo

    not sure I buy the number one votes for McAdams to get in, but anything else seems about right.

  • John

    Could be a combination of being quite divisive and being late-breaking.

  • Joebaggins

    Why not go back to five for oscar
    The big short
    Mad max fury road
    The Martian
    The revenant
    Spotlight

  • Cameron

    I feel like Room and Brooklyn are competing for the same slot. I hope I’m wrong though.

  • Cameron

    The director nod here helps a lot.

  • John

    And while everyone’s assuming Brie Larson will win … and she very well may … Brooklyn is also nominated for BP and 4 other times (more than Room) and Saoirse Ronan has been a favorite with this BFCA group in the past.

  • John

    Ronan is a fave with the BFCA (from years past). Interesting, I think.

  • Cameron

    Seems highly irregular.

  • john smith

    Did it arrive later than “The Revenant”? I think you right about it arriveing late. There’s still no reviews of the film, what’s that about. If you don’t allow your film to be seen, how can you complain it’s not getting rewarded. How have you seen it? There isn’t any reviews for it out there, so we don’t really know how good it is. I think the film isn’t as good as was expected and that’s why it’s shrouded in mystery. If the film is great, TWC and Tarantino have shot themselves in the foot by getting their film out so late.

  • Joebaggins

    Actor
    Cranston
    Carell
    di caprio
    Damon
    Fass bender

  • John

    Like I said elsewhere, divisive film (with great craft and performances) and late-breaking.

  • John

    Agreed. Reports are that McKellen has been EVERYWHERE campaigning and he is a critical favorite. So … how in the heck has he not been popping up ANYWHERE?

  • TLS

    he’s hardly a front runner

  • John

    Having just seen Trumbo, I could see that film making a longlist/shortlist for Hair and Make-Up.

  • Cameron

    Too many notes.

  • John

    Flame away, but I actually enjoy the BFCA every year. The TV broadcast is always a horrific shit show, but an entertaining one (for me, at least).

    And — they always manage to nominate people who I LOVE who wound-up getting left-off of SAG/GG lists.

    So I’m down with them.

  • TLS

    But of course there is no God.

  • TLS

    Brooklyn is sooooo being nominated.

  • John

    I still think Redmayne gets in because he’s made the SAG/GG/BFCA (will likely get in with BAFTA), and he’s a charming campaigner with a baity movie/role. Residual admiration/respect from 10 months ago should be pretty strong, too.

  • http://maptothefuture.com/ unlikelyhood

    HI guys, I would have been here sooner, but I was reading the whole list aloud

  • TLS

    Exactly — the stats are way skewed because MMFR falls into three categories. Great movie, but it’s a stupid awards system.

  • john smith

    It’s a very baity film. Talk about pedigree. Do you how many people who’ve worked on BOS are either multiple Oscar winners or have been nominated multiple times? It the must be some kind of record.

  • aroncido

    I’m purely speculating here, but I think the people who are going to nominate BoS are the people not really liking Mad Max. One is baity, other is genre. If BoS doesn’t get in, Mad Max might have a good night at the Oscars.

  • lincolnwuzrobd

    Well, only he and Mark Rylance have been nominated by the GG, SAG and CC bodies, for whatever that’s worth, plus a few critics awards thrown in. What definition are you using – Goldderby?

  • John

    And don’t forget, people … a little something called Star Wars might smash it’s way into 5-7 tech categories, taking some spots away that we see here today.

  • lincolnwuzrobd

    Ah yes, the Jake Gyllenhaal omission in 2014, the biggest outrage of last year. Omitting Michael Shannon this year would be just as depressing. I’m still trying to prepare myself for Ian McKellen’s non-nomination.

  • Wayman Wong

    See the movie first. Some will be bowled over by it; others will be baffled. The cast, however, is wonderful. And though Bale seems to be the only one getting any real traction, awards-wise, I have to say that Ryan Gosling was the real surprise. His charismatic role reminded me of Roma in Mamet’s ”Glengarry Glen Ross.” I wish Gosling were getting nominated.

  • Wayman Wong

    Actually, the average age for the Best Actor Oscar winner is 44. Best Actress, however, is 36.

  • John

    True (McAdams and #1 votes)

  • john smith

    Even if BOS gets in, I don’t it has much chance of winning more than Best Supporting Actor for Rylance and maybe an overdue Best Score for Newman.

  • Frank J. Avella

    HATEFUL EIGHT will be divisive. I think it’s pretty mediocre stuff. And I am a big QT fan. He keeps getting nominated because they want him to show up!

  • john smith

    BEST COMEDY
    The Big Short
    Inside Out
    Joy
    Sisters
    Spy
    Trainwreck

    Does anyone notice anything odd about this list? Where is “The Martian”? It is nominated in this category at the Golden Globes but it is missing here. Or is “The Martian Musical instead of comedy? “The Big Short” is huge favourite at GG and will ride that momentum to the Oscars. “The Martian’s” will pay for its category fraud.

  • mandawg

    Personally, I’m not counting out Blanchett.

  • mandawg

    That should just rename it the Critics Loved Everybody So Everybody Gets Nominated Awards.

  • mandawg

    Am I really in the minority in thinking Jurassic World deserves more Razzie nominations than accolades?

  • mandawg

    Yeah, I don’t get that at all.

  • John

    Yeah I took out McAdams and put in JJL, huge oversight

  • Chris Price

    I am a SAG voting member. I’ve seen it twice at the DGA in Hollywood in 70mm. It arrived about a week and a half later than Revenant and is still embargoed until the 21st. It is really a very good movie. I’d rank it just below Basterds but definitely above Django.

  • Chris Price

    Disagree about mediocrity. Its a buffet of cinema with some fantastic performances.

  • Chris Price

    “Martian is the “safe” choice to honor genre”

    Exactly why it’s more likely to upset than MMFR. But let’s be real, neither is gonna do that.

  • Chris Price

    I said the exact same thing above. Divisive, my ass. I’ve seen it twice in a packed house at the DGA and it was rapturously received. Enthusiastic applause at the end of the Overture, the Intermission and the ending.

  • Chris Price

    I wish PHOENIX was in there, but alas.

  • Chris Price

    Hate to be a broken record, but watch out for JOY.

  • TLS

    the dictionary definition

  • Chris Price

    I’m with you.

  • Frank J. Avella

    I will give you that Goggins gave a great performance but Leigh (whom I ADORE) is NOT award worthy. Like I said it’s divisive. At my screening there were journos breaking up into camps it seemed. For me, it was overly indulgent–even using his past films as a measure.

  • Paddy Mulholland

    this is the funniest thing you’ve ever said lol

  • http://maptothefuture.com/ unlikelyhood

    low bar to clear

  • Paddy Mulholland

    Carol keeps missing in Adapted Screenplay. A very tough category to crack this year, but am I alone in being completely dumbfounded by this? What an exquisite piece of writing by Phyllis Nagy! Hoping the general Best Picture buzz will earn it an Oscar nod in this category, where it could win.

  • http://maptothefuture.com/ unlikelyhood

    Mad Max
    Martian
    Ex Machina

  • mandawg

    Hooray!!

  • No shoes

    Yeah, Birdman paid a huge price for LOSING in comedy last year. Ha.

  • No shoes

    It would work for me, but Inside Out is stretching the category past the breaking point.

  • No shoes

    Ha. “Just take out a few, then it will be perfect!”

    “Which would you suggest?”

  • No shoes

    Did Hardy get a supporting nod any significant place but here? I can’t remember.

  • No shoes

    Sasha said their history of predicting director is pretty spotty.

  • No shoes

    Hateful is nominated for screenplay because it’s a weak category. Neither Revenant or Mad Max are ever going to be nominated for their screenplay.

  • Pete Miesel

    Max will end up with the most Oscar noms or tied for the most, which will help George Miller out immensely.

  • No shoes

    When you take out the “odd” categories you have Spotlight, The Martian, Mad Max, Revenant, Carol in pretty much a dead heat. Fabulous!

  • Movie Lover

    Rampling and Theron are on the best actress list so I have few complaints.

  • Koleś

    Will Max end up with most nominations? It’s possible, but without a sho-in for an acting nod, that might be harder than it seems. Just look at Slumdog.

    Will it help George Miller? It’s possible, but look how much good did these 13 nominations did for David Fincher.

    Ok. Right now I’m comparing Mad Max to both Slumdog and Benjamin Button. I need to get some sleep :)

  • No shoes

    The Big Short is only in four of the Oscar categories, half of what The Martian’s noms are. They’d choose a comedy director over a living legend making one his most beloved films in his late seventies? Not seeing that happening.

  • Dane M

    Category fraud was The HFPA putting The Martian in comedy. It’s not a comedy at all. Ridiculous. These guys got it right.

  • Movie Lover

    I was considering this outcome too. Pitt’s Plan B produced The Big Short so McKay will have that support the same way 12YAS benefited.

  • Dane M

    I think TJ Miller will make it good this year. Bit of a loose cannon.

  • No shoes

    Carrell is going lead, Bale is going supporting. And The Martian is funnier than 70% of the movies nominated in comedy the last … Well, forever.

  • politicaldefiance

    I don’t think Mad Max is a lock either, but it’s chances are looking better and better each day. If it gets the DGA and PGA nominations, it’ll be close. If it’s nominated by BAFTA for director and picture as well? It’s locked. Granted, this all happened to Inception and Nolan ended up being snubbed for directing, but if Mad Max is nominated by all of those groups of voters then it’s pretty much guaranteed Best Picture and/or Best Director nods (more likely the latter if we’re only choosing one) from the Academy.

  • No shoes

    Like Birdman was snubbed last year?

  • politicaldefiance

    That would be great if Beasts of No Nation was a surprise nominee on the morning of Oscar nominations. I’m bummed that Idris Elba didn’t make the cut here for his supporting actor work, but I hope he gets Oscar recognition. He’s sensational. So is that kid Abraham Attah, who I think would be more than deserving of a Best Actor nod. If Quvenzhané Wallis can get nominated for her fine-but-overrated work in Beasts of the Southern Wild (how ironic that the names of the films are so similar), then I see no reason why Attah’s far superior performance can’t be either.

  • No shoes

    I will when DiCap does. :-)

  • politicaldefiance

    I mean, who else are they going to nominate? Vin Diesel in Furious 7?

    They should just get rid of those stupid categories, honestly. Makes these awards look even more worthless.

  • politicaldefiance

    It’s a real shame Idris Elba is missing here. I hope the Academy recognizes him. It’d be great if the film popped up in Best Picture as well.

  • No shoes

    Damon is definitely on a different level from DiCaprio in all the best ways.

  • alexsh

    This is making me so hopeful for a Spotlight/Mad Max BP/BD split (although McCarthy absolutely deserves a nomination)

  • politicaldefiance

    I can see a slight possibility for Charlize Theron making it in Best Actress if the Academy really digs Mad Max. If she did make it, I would guess she would take Jennifer Lawrence’s spot. But, as of writing, this is all wishful thinking.

  • Wayman Wong

    Hardy got a Supporting nod from the DC critics, and he got Actor & Supporting noms from Houston. Hardy also won Best Actor at Toronto, and the runner-up was Leonardo DiCaprio!

  • Wayman Wong

    The San Francisco critics nominated McKellen … and that’s about it.

  • Jamie Teller

    A never-nominated veteran most of them have known of for decades, in a critically acclaimed film, vs. an actress who’s already been nominated three times and won once before her 25th birthday, in a film whose reception to date is mixed at best?

    Yeah, I think they will.

  • Jamie Teller

    I mean, for once I’d say they SHOULD nominate him (especially over Tom McCarthy), but unless he has a late surge courtesy of the DGA I think he’s out.

  • Jamie Teller

    If she gets in, watch out for Max to win it all. Especially with Spotlight’s track record in the performance categories being spottier than expected.

  • Sato

    I fourth the motion

  • Sato

    Who will BAFTA snub? Because I have a feeling they will nominate Caine and McKellen. Fassbender is also a home talent.

  • Sato

    I think it was Fox’s decision to compete in Comedy not the HFPA. Because thought it won’t have a stiff competition in Comedy. Then The Big Short arrived a legit comedy in my opinion. And a better film as well.

  • Sato

    With too many nominees and they bothered to have an Action/Adventure and Sci-Fi/Horror categories but not Fantasy? That’s genre discrimination!!!

  • George Golden

    Do not underestimate Brooklyn.It just might go all the way..

  • Chris Price

    I also thought Sam Jackson, Tim Roth and Bruce Dern were all excellent

  • http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3722778/ Arnaud Trouvé

  • http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3722778/ Arnaud Trouvé

    I actually think MUSTANG, if it gets nominated, has a good shot at winning the thing. Maybe France’s biggest chance since Amélie, 15 years ago.
    Son of Saul is impressive, but it’s also harrowing. Sometimes the big favourite loses: see Pan’s Labyrinth, or Waltz with Bashir losing to Departures.

    Too bad the film is not eligible in other categories :(

  • Wayman Wong

    So … an early report says the reaction to ”Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was pretty enthusiastic. Will the Academy will need to make space for it among its Best Picture nominees? And which movie will it bump out?

  • Jope Valverde

    Without Action and Comedy Categories, those are the greatest nominations i’ve seen so far. Just sad about Idris and Keaton. Happy to see Depp and Cranston (one does not invalidate the other). And some love for Hardy in The Revenant.

    One of the Variety critics posted that it was better than prequels and on par with Jedi. That is good but not BP good. Unless it makes hella bank and AMPAs give them a slot just because.

  • Milli b

    Hopefully Di Caprio AND Damon and we can see people collectively lose their shit

  • JJ

    “John Smith” is on his Martian bashing job again!

  • Guest2015.

    Hideous TV nominations, with the best drama series of the past 10 years – Continuum – gets shut out altogether. Supergirl’s fantastic winter finale showed just how short-sighted the Circle (jerks?) are by snubbing Melissa Benoist and Calista Flockhart.

  • JJ

    Everybody expects BAFTA to stan for the home team.

  • Guest2015.

    Nope; it’s just a reboot of Jurassic Park.

  • Guest2015.

    Minions >>>> Inside Out.

  • JJ

    Toronto feels like it was ten years ago.

  • Cameron

    The fact that he’s still in the discussion at all bodes well for the film’s Best Picture chances, if not Best Director (he won’t make it in).

  • Cameron

    Supergirl is outstandingly average television. It’s nothing special and neither is Benoist’s performance in it.

  • Milli b

    Why do you think Melissa Benoist would be recognized? She is serviceable in a serviceable show.

  • lincolnwuzrobd

    So you’re admitting I’m right!. I thank you very much

  • john smith

    I said it would pay for its category fraud by losing the Golden Globe awards to TBS. You think “The Martian” could do “Birdman”, a film that was about the industry and was a superior film? “Birdman” doing “Birdman” was a shock but “The Martian” is no “Birdman”.

  • john smith

    Pointing out category fraud is bashing job?

  • mandawg

    I really didn’t understand why they kept referencing the original. All that did was draw unfavorable comparisons.

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    They were 3/3 in the 3 years before Boyhood lost, 4/4 in the 4 years before The Social Network lost, 5/5 in the 5 years before Sideways and Brokeback Mountain lost. So, yeah, definitely not irrelevant… Nowhere near as telling as the guilds, but still a pretty strong precursor. It’s certainly possible that their winner will differ from the Academy’s a second year in a row, but not exactly likely.

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    OMG please stop saying “Fassbomb”!!! Nobody’s going to forget you hate Fassbender if you do, trust me! :)

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    I’m rather confident Bridge of Spies is in – it made both the NBR and AFI top 10s, is guaranteed a nomination (which looks like it could also be a win), and, with its excellent performance here, getting nommed for both Picture AND Director, I don’t see any reason for it not to get in. Not to mention that it’s Spielberg…

    I’m worried about Brooklyn, though. I kind of, sort of, really didn’t like Room, so I hope that is the one that will be left out, somehow, from among the BFCA 10 (along with Sicario, which is a pretty obvious choice), but, based, among other things, on the GG Screenplay nomination (at least 4 of those 5 get in every year), and the fact that I’m assuming Steve Jobs isn’t getting in, it looks stronger than Brooklyn. I hope I’m wrong about that!

    Both could be out, now that Star Wars has gotten such great reviews and made the AFI list. It and The Hateful Eight (or something unexpected) could replace them. Also, we could have 8 nominees or less again, which would suck… But, yeah, anyway, Bridge of Spies is definitely looking the strongest of the 3 right now for me, and I’m not too worried about it. It definitely COULD miss, but I doubt it.

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    That IS pretty lame, I agree. Inside Out should be there.

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    If it’s really THAT strong (which I doubt), it’ll get nominated for BD as well…

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    If there’s a God, he’ll definitely have more important things to take care of…

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    I 100% agree with your analysis – and my analysis of some stats gives roughly the same favorites to make it (including The Hateful Eight). I hope Brooklyn manages to get in, though, and Room is left out – but, stats-wise, Brooklyn does look like no.10 right now. Do you think Star Wars could get in? I guess it’s probably too much sci-fi for one year…

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    Mad Max could definitely miss, but the pessimist in me (I didn’t like it much) just screams that it won’t, sadly…

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    I hope Ronan wins, but I still think Larson is more likely.

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    I had fun watching it, but, yeah, it’s pretty ridiculous, to say the least…

  • Birdienest81

    Star Wars could get in, although it is quite a long shot, though given the Academy’s distaste for sequels (I don’t think the sci-fi bias would apply here given that Mad Max and Martian are in the conversation). I mean it does have an 81 Metacritic rating, but Abrams’ first Star Trek warranted an 83 and only received tech Oscars nods (including a Makeup win). As Sasha said, it would be fighting with Inside Out for that 10th spot.

    On the other hand, it could get at least four or five tech nods.

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    Wow, Abrams’ Star Trek had 83 on Metacritic?! Wouldn’t have guessed that…

    Anyway, if Mad Max can get in, despite the sequel bias, why not Star Wars as well? :) But, yeah, the argument above (the 83 for Star Trek) has convinced me it’s probably not happening. Makes my predictions easier, at least.

  • Birdienest81

    Actually Force Awakens has an 81 (it had 83 earlier this morning from 37 reviews), but still, I was expecting mid-70’s for this film. A BP nomination would be the equivalent of a win (FTR, I rooting for Spotlight to win it with Carol and Mad Max as my alternatives).

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    I think I’m going to go see it (Star Wars) tomorrow, so maybe I’ll be clearer on its chances then.

    I’ve also been rooting for (and predicting) Spotlight, sight unseen (because I expect to like it a lot) – ever since it first started getting BP attention. :) Carol I’ve not seen (but I doubt it can win, anyway). Fury Road I didn’t love. I’m not going to lie – I would be pretty disappointed if it somehow managed to win BP.

  • Birdienest81

    I’m not seeing Star Wars until probably January (avoiding large crowds and money saving issues). I’m not fan at all, to be honest. However, I do respect Star Wars (mostly the 1977 one, but also the franchise as a whole for helping transition Hollywood into the modern world for better or worse). And even w/o major nominations, I’m absolutely sure AMPAS is grateful for Star Wars as well.

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    Oh, I’m not really a fan either. :) The first one (1977) is the only one I really like. I have big problems with the next two, and I haven’t even seen the newer ones yet. But I AM a fan of JJ Abrams’ work, kind of, and the fact that this one is a reboot of sorts, with new characters and plots, sounds very promising to me, for some reason. But, yeah, even so, had it not been so well reviewed, I definitely wouldn’t be going to see it now, but would probably wait for the Blu-ray to come out, or something.

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    And yeah, I don’t like watching movies with a lot of other people either, but the theater I go to doesn’t really fill up, no matter what’s playing, so I’m hoping it won’t be an issue. Besides, I don’t think people are THAT into Star Wars here in Romania – not enough for there to be large crowds, anyway. At least I hope not…

  • NA

    I definitely think Star Wars can get in. If Mad Max and The Martian are in conversation, it definitely has a shot. Star Trek came close to a nomination, J.J. is well liked in the industry and it’s getting consistently good reviews. It has nostalgia going for it, older characters are shown as still relevant. AFI nod has helped, now if it gets a PGA nod, it’s totally in.

    I also think The Martian is going to miss a BP nom if Star Wars actually gets in. Sasha is completely wrong when she says it’s fighting with Inside Out. That makes no sense. Sure it’s fighting for a SPOT with Inside Out. Using the same principle, it’s fighting with Brooklyn, The Hateful Eight, Straight Outta Compton and Beasts of No Nation as well. Singling out one film is unjustified. A voter won’t be thinking this way, they never do. If Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo can’t crack the Supporting Actor field, it’s not because they are competing with Sylvester Stallone. Sure they are fighting for a SPOT with him and Bale, Shannon, Tremblay and Elba but the two actors are competing with EACH OTHER.

  • fishnets

    But it sounds so good and true. he bombed so many movies it’s like his real name. :)

  • Claudiu Cristian Dobre

    :) Well, that’s your opinion – but, whether you’re right or wrong about that, saying any word you’ve made up yourself THAT often makes it annoying, eventually, even if at first it sounded good…

  • fishnets

    ok,ok..
