Oscars Watch: 2015 Chicago Film Critics Association Awards

Chicago shifts slightly back to giving “Mad Max: Fury Road” all the love, with Best Picture and Best Director for George Miller. Leonardo DiCaprio is now becoming the front-runner for Best Actor for his role in “The Revenant,” as long as he can fend off the strange “bear rape” headline that surfaced not too long ago. Another name that pops here that I’m praying will get an Oscar nomination is Benicio Del Toro for his supporting role in “Sicario” which would be much deserved and remains one of my favorite films of the year. I’m really wondering if “The Big Short” will get much love from the Academy, as there has not been much talk about it until the SAG and Golden Globe nominations came out.
