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[...]

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[...]

“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[...]

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[...]

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[...]

DGA makes history and gives their top prize again to Alejandro G. Iñárritu for “The Revenant”

Yes, the Directors Guild of America made history over the weekend at their annual awards ceremony. They decided to award Alejandro G. Iñárritu again this year, making him the first filmmaker to win back to back honors from DGA. His win for The Revenant obviously shakes up the Oscar race[...]

OSCARS: ‘The Revenant’ leads the 88th Academy Award Nominations

We finally know who and what has been nominated this year by Oscar. Ladies and gentlemen, just a few moments ago this morning the 88th Academy Award nominations were handed out, with The Revenant leading the way. 12 nominations went to that film, with Mad Max: Fury Road next in[...]

DGA nominees announced

Finally, I get a precursor right. After what has seemed like an impossible to predict awards season, I actually went five for five with my Directors Guild of America (or DGA) nominees, which were announced earlier today. The nominees were, of course, Alejandro G. Iñárritu for The Revenant, Tom McCarthy[...]

Golden Globe results: Surprises and Upsets everywhere as ‘The Martian’ and ‘The Revenant’ emerge victorious

Wow. Just…wow. As much as I try to prepare myself for the unexpected, last night’s 73rd Golden Globe Awards was still something else. My predictions, along with everyone else in the industry, were way off, as curveball after curveball came our way. It turned out to be a very good[...]
