Here are the nominees for Best Picture:

The Big Short

Bridge of Spies

Brooklyn

Mad Max: Fury Road

The Martian

The Revenant

Room

Spotlight

Who Should Win: All things being equal, out of these eight the film I think we’ll remember the most is ‘Mad Max’.

Who Will Win: Actors are the biggest branch.  Based on that I would think ‘Spotlight’ looks good, with ‘the Big Short’ right behind it.

Who I’m Cheering For: It would be nice to see a populist film when since that doesn’t happen too often.  Out of these eight, I’m cheering for ‘Mad Max.’

Have a good weekend and enjoy the show (if you’re watching).

Here are the nominees for Best Directing:

The Big Short – Adam McKay

Mad Max: Fury Road – George Miller

The Revenant – Alejandro G. Innaritu

Room – Lenny Abrahamson

Spotlight – Tom McCarthy

Who Should Win: In a fairly competitive year, most agreed ‘Mad Max’ was amazing (especially on the big screen), which should favor George Miller.

Who Will Win: All due respect, the only name that would complete shock me to be called would be Abrahamson. Could make a compelling case for the other four based on actors preference (McCarthy) or building an elite reputation (Innaritu).
