This is the first year in a long time that I’ve seen a bulk of the Oscar nominations. These are my picks even though some weren’t nominated. These are my picks not predictions.
Documentary: Winter on Fire/what a story that I had no idea about.
Director: Adam McKay for The Big Short/to be able to turn a book like that into a movie is impressive.
Supporting Actress: Rachel McAdams/in fairness I didn’t see any of the other nominees in this category
Best Actress: Daisey Ridley for Star Wars/not nominated but she was pretty awesome/I thought Saoirise Ronin was really good in Brooklyn too.
Supporting Actor: Tom Hardy/he was better than Leo, and I didn’t realize it was him until the credits. I would not be upset if Sly won for Creed.
Best Actor: Leo DiCaprio/such a tough role without much dialogue, even though I just said Tom Hardy was better, which should speak to how good Tom Hardy was. Mark Rylance was awesome in Bridge of Spies…This is the toughest category.
Best Picture: Mad Max: Fury Road
