88th Academy Award Winners

Listen, I can’t be mad because the same thing happened a few years ago when “12 Years A Slave” won having only won Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress, while “Gravity” had taken home 7 Oscars including Best Directing. So “The Revenant” wins Best Directing, Best Cinematography, and Best Leading Actor, yet does not pull off Best Picture. I do know which film I’ll … Read More 88th Academy Award Winners

Here are something to consider this year while making your guesses. One of the things that makes the Oscars so much fun to watch are the surprises.

2016 Oscars Challenge: [6] “Room” – Best Directing

LENNY ABRAHAMSON “Room” The only other thing I know Lenny Abrahamson from is directing the small comedy “Frank” starring Michael Fassbender and Domhnall Gleeson back in 2014. Other than that, he’s been mostly off the radar.

Chicago shifts slightly back to giving “Mad Max: Fury Road” all the love, with Best Picture and Best Director for George Miller.

Oscars Watch: 2015 Phoenix Film Critics Circle Awards

As is the trend forming, “Spotlight” takes Best Picture, George Miller (“Mad Max: Fury Road”) takes Best Director.

I’m so excited to see Sylvester Stallone (“Creed”) getting wins across the board as well, as it’d … Read More Oscars Watch: 2015 Phoenix Film Critics Circle Awards

For too long, it feels like films are made to either be Oscar bait or not. And when the Academy extended Best Picture to possibly 10, they did so to integrate other worthy films.

Although “Spotlight” again takes the top spot, finally a different director lands in the Best Director category, giving Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (“The Revenant”) a win.

Oscars Watch: 2015 New York Film Critics Online Awards

According to most who have any idea about the Oscars, “Spotlight,” so far, is the film to beat this year.

Oscars Watch: 2015 National Board Of Review Awards

Knowing that it is a strong possibility that “Mad Max: Fury Road” could land as one of the nine or ten Best Picture nominees is actually really cool to think about.
