Where do the new Oscar winners stack up with previous winners?

“Birdman” soars at the Spirit Awards and Oscar ceremony

Well, it happened folks. Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) took Best Picture from Richard Linklater’s Boyhood last night at the Academy Awards. It also managed to win Iñárritu Best Director over Linklater, as well as Best Original Screenplay as well, beating back Wes Anderson’s The[...]

Updated Oscar Predictions going into February

After all of the guild excitement last week, I figured it was high time to take a new look at the Academy Award race and update my Oscar predictions. The Producers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild both cited Birdman over Boyhood with their top prizes, while the[...]

Screen Actors Guild predictions

On Sunday night, the Screen Actors Guild will hand out their prizes, beginning the portion of phase two for the awards season where the guilds chime in. SAG is a particularly noteworthy one due to how they don’t just attempt to clear up the acting categories…they also can be a[...]

Final Oscar Predictions

It’s all come down to this, ladies and gentlemen. All of my analysis and hypotheticals, my opinion pieces and shots in the dark, they’re all just dust in the wind now. Yes, tomorrow morning the Academy will finally unveil their Oscar nominations. I’ve been trying to accurately predict these nominations[...]

The Globe Awards don’t have any true significance in terms of the Academy Awards (due in part to a completely different[...]
