2016 Oscar Predictions

Again, I have big shoes to fill. Last year, I predicted all of the big six and 14 out of 21 overall (not as good as two years ago but still pretty good). This year the frontrunners are not as clear so this’ll be harder, but here goes!

  • Brooklyn
  • Mad Max: Fury Road

Top 10 On Crack

waynesworldtopten

I’m not a huge fan of lists and don’t do many on this site, but the other night I had an urge to do some and then I went crazy! All the top tens I could think of, some serious, some fun, all conveniently placed in this post for your reading pleasure. There’s a lot here, so browse around and learn about my tastes, or have even more fun and read them all!

A note before we begin: all my entries are in chronological order, although I did star the #1 entries. The rest in each category, numbers two through ten, are equal (there are too many nuances, not to mention my own changing tastes, to rank them).

Lastly, I obviously am only including movies I’ve seen. So if you’re upset about a film that is missing, I might not have seen it (recommend it to me in the comments!). These lists are current as of November 30th, 2015.

And now, without further ado: My Top 10:

2015 Oscar Predictions

oscars

I have big shoes to fill. Last year, I correctly predicted all of the big six and 17 out of 21 overall. This year there are much fewer clear cut favorites, which makes the predictions much harder. Still, I’m aiming to do even better than last year. Here goes!

Most Anticipated Films of 2014, Part Four: Release Date Not Set

Finishing my Most Anticipated Films of 2014, here are the films scheduled for release in 2014 but without a specific date yet.

Must Sees: Inherent Vice – The Master was a miss for me, but PT Anderson remains one of if not the most exciting filmmaker of our time. He will forever be one of my most anticipated filmmakers. Night Moves – One of my most anticipated films for 2013, but it never got released due I think to legal issues. I hope it gets released soon; this is from another one of my favorite filmmakers! Foxcatcher – Bennett Miller is two for two with Capote and Moneyball, and from what I hear this film will make him three for three. Boyhood – Richard Linklater shot this a couple weeks a year for the last twelve years, following a boy and his family as they age in real time. The premise alone sounds intriguing. A Most Violent Year – With Margin Call and All Is Lost, JC Chandor is quickly becoming one of the most interesting filmmakers working today. I am excited for his next film! Life Itself – A doc on my favorite movie critic, the late Roger Ebert. It is directed by one of the best documentary filmmakers out there, so it has that going for it as well.
