It all comes down to this. Ladies and gentlemen, the Oscars are this weekend. In about 48 hours, we’ll know all of the Academy Award winners and losers. As such, it’s obviously time for final predictions. They’re here for you, along with a bit more than usual, because that’s just[...]

Just how many Oscars can “La La Land” potentially win?

As we approach the Academy Awards in just a few short days, the number one question on any serious pundit’s mind is this: just how well is La La Land going to do? Between now and Sunday night, it’s just a matter of figuring out if Damien Chazelle’s film is[...]

“Get Out” is a very promising filmmaking debut for Jordan Peele

Horror comedy hybrids are a hard thing to really pull off. You need to mix the two genres in such a way that never overpowers the other. When it works, it can be brilliant. When it doesn’t, the results can be cringe worthy. With Get Out, Jordan Peele has gone[...]

Film Independent Spirit Award predictions

On Saturday, the day before the Academy Awards, a very different sort of ceremony is held. Yes, I’m talking about the Film Independent Spirit Awards, which come right before Oscar this weekend.

Sure, there are decent enough ones if you look hard enough, but they’re usually safe genre outings, with more often than not the quality movies being independent releases. Ambition and ambitious[...]

Potential upsets to consider for Oscar night

Happy Valentine’s Day! As we move toward the Academy Awards ceremony like a speeding freight train, one thing to contemplate a bit are what kind of big surprises we might ultimately see. You never really can truly predict an upset, by their very nature, but you can begin to see[...]

BAFTA spreads the love with its awards

Yesterday afternoon, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (or BAFTA, as they’re known) handed out their awards, with the ceremony being televised a few hours later. They’re one of the last major precursors, with this year being especially noteworthy. Today, Oscar voters have ballots in their hands, so[...]
