Where does “Spotlight” rank as a Best Picture winner?

In case you’re living under an Oscar related rock, late last month Spotlight won Best Picture at the 88th Academy Awards. I think that Oscar voters made an excellent selection, choosing the film over its closest competitors The Big Short, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Revenant. For today, I[...]

The best moments from the 88th Academy Awards

Now that a little bit of time has been removed from the actual ceremony, I think it’s only right to look back on the 88th Academy Awards for a moment. Yes, I’m going to be looking at the positives of the event, as opposed to the negatives. We can always[...]

‘Spotlight’ is the big winner at the Independent Spirit Awards

The night before it would go on to win Best Picture at the Oscars, Spotlight wound up having a great night at the Spirit Awards. Yes, Tom McCarthy’s film all but swept the Spirits, beating back what originally seemed like a strong challenge from Todd Haynes’ Carol, not to mention[...]

The 88th Academy Awards offered up surprise after surprise

Wow. That’s about as appropriate a one word reaction to what happened last night as anything else. After a full year basically of predictions, guessing, analysis, and precursors, it all came down to waiting for Morgan Freeman to announce the Best Picture winner at the 88th Oscars. Recent events had[...]

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[...]

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[...]

BAFTA gives a big boost to “The Revenant”

Yesterday, some of the final shots in the Oscar race were fired, including a big one when The Revenant scored with the British Academy (known to us as BAFTA). Yes, we had BAFTA announce yesterday, and they more or less made it clear that Alejandro G. Inarritu and his film[...]

“The Big Short” wins with the Producers Guild: the new Oscar frontrunner?

Folks, we have a new frontrunner in Best Picture. Over the weekend, the 27th annual Producers Guild Awards were given out and The Big Short pulled the upset, taking the illustrious Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. The Producers Guild of America (or PGA) are[...]

Mad Max: Fury Road dominates the Critics Choice Awards while Spotlight takes Best Picture

Last night, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (or BFCA) handed out their Critics Choice Awards for the 21st time. Though the night was fairly dominated by Mad Max: Fury Road, the evening’s top prize did go to Spotlight. I want to caution that this isn’t the sort of precursor that[...]
