My final vote in my Oscar pool goes to The Revenant, with Inarritu taking home Best Director.
Spotlight could take it, but I think a Best Original Screenplay win is enough for it, especially since Tom McCarthy is one of the writers and will not go home empty-handed.

I think the Revenant will take home the award but i also hope the Martian gets an award too, it is an excellent movie and i highly recommend seeing it



My guess is the revenant. But my personal favorite among the list is big short.

But I have to say, this year's animation line up is amazing. Although inside out wins it hands down. But the rest of the movies are great too.

I only ended up seeing four and a half. My favorite was Brooklyn and then Spotlight, so I'm rooting for Spotlight.



Only seen 3 of the movies so far, but how the hell did Spotlight even get nominated? Some of the most bland, uninspired filmmaking I've seen in recent times.

You just answered your own question.

That is not your daddy's shotgun cowboy!
The big short.
It exposes how ludicrous corporatism has become,just a matter of time before it happens again.
The taxpayer bailing out the fat cats and the fat cats remaining fat cats.

The Revenent is another terrible Di Caprio film.

I watched this two days ago and never in a million years would I have thought I was witnessing a potential Best Picture winner. One of the most lightweight films I've seen, it's about time the Academy cared more about the filmmaking craft and less about their subject matter

Lightweight is a very good way to put it, and i liked Spotlight. What would you have wanted to win?

I was rooting for Room, i only seen four of the nominees though.



That's wonderful, Johnny!
I liked Bridge of Spies and The Martian, but I knew that neither had a snowball's chance in He!! to win, so my next choice was Spotlight. I'm glad it won over The Revenant.



Master of My Domain
I was really hoping The Relevant would win, but for some reason no one even mentioned it tonight.
Hush Swan, your post isn't relevant to the conversation.

It's a competently-made true-story dramatisation about an important issue - that makes it far more of a potential Best Picture winner than something like Mad Max: Fury Road. Also, the Academy obviously shows how much they care about actual filmmaking craft with the technical awards where people get played off after thirty seconds,



28 days...6 hours...42 minutes...12 seconds
it's about time the Academy cared more about the filmmaking craft and less about their subject matter
Isn't that why The Revenant won Cinematography and Director???
