The Most Predictable Oscars – The 88th Academy Awards

By Michael Russnow As a show it was middling, opening with an attractive display of globes emblazoned with “Courage,” “Talent,” “Heart” and “Passion,” then a film montage before emcee Chris Rock hit the stage. As someone who didn’t appreciate Rock as host 11 years ago it was a bit surprising to see[...]

A final set of Oscar predictions

This is it, ladies and gentlemen, the moment of truth for a prognosticator. Almost a full year of musing on the Academy Award race has led here. We’re now just a few days out from the Oscars being held, with a new slate of winners set to enter the record[...]

Predicting the Independent Spirit Awards

While it’s true that we’re just about 72 hours out from the Oscars, we’ve also got the Film Independent Spirit Awards coming in just about 48 hours or so. Personally, I find the Spirit Awards to sometimes be preferable to the Academy Awards, since they offer up a chance for[...]

“The Big Short” vs “The Revenant” vs “Spotlight” in the race for Best Picture

As we get down to the final days until the Academy Awards, it’s obviously still worth focusing in on a few of the races that might still be up in the air, concluding now with the biggest one. Yes, the competition for Best Picture. Depending on how generous you’re feeling[...]

Casey Affleck moves closer to leading man status with “Triple 9”

As much as this week is pretty much dedicated to the run up to the Academy Awards, we can’t completely forget about new releases, now can we? The most notable of which for this week is obviously Triple 9, which boasts an incredible cast from top to bottom, on par[...]

Kate Winslet and Alicia Vikander are duking it out for Best Supporting Actress

With less than a full week now until the Academy Awards, we’re continuing to focus in on a few of the races that might still be up in the air. In terms of the big eight (minus Best Picture, which I’ll tackle in a few days), the only category up[...]

Updated Academy Award Predictions

Oh boy. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the second to last opportunity for me to figure out what might happen at the Oscars. All of the information is at our fingertips, so it’s just a matter of trying to read the tea leaves as best as possible. On the one[...]

The tech categories will be a battle between “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Revenant”

As we get down to the final week and a half or so until the Academy Awards ceremony, it’s worth focusing in on a few of the races that might still be up in the air. I have three of these pieces planned, with the first one being a look[...]

“The Witch” seeks to be the next small scale horror success story

While the studio system has more or less given up on truly attempting to put out thought provoking horror films, the independent circuit has really picked up the slack over the past handful of years. As many of you know, I raved often last year about It Follows, with many[...]

“Deadpool” has the top February opening weekend in history

Over the long holiday weekend, we saw some box office records fall. Yes, Deadpool had one of the very best early year openings ever, setting the mark for the month of February, as well as the one for an R rated feature. Considering what a struggle this was to even[...]
