If Spotlight is going to win best picture isn't it going to need an acting win? Doesn't seem like it's getting director so what is it going to win other than supposedly best picture. Screenplay? That's two.

What are you predicting instead? Nothing else really makes sense. I thought about The Big Short after its SAG/GG overperformance, but after watching the movie it seems a bit too frattish to win. The Martian doesn't seem like it's gonna have the needed passion. I don't see the Academy going for the third installment of an Australian post-apocalyptic saga. Carol is probably too artsy and queer. What else is there?

Room is underrated as a Best Picture contender.

I haven't seen it, but that sounds like a good pick. How about making a club for it?

Derp, I meant to write "third sequel" but somehow it came out third installment.

As for Star Wars...nah.

What happens if Anomalisa wins Best Animated Feature. Assuming voters want to award Inside Out somewhere, Screenplay would be the only option.

Post Re: Fact: Spotlight will win Best Picture
Or voters just decide that they've awarded Pixar enough and Inside Out gets completely shutout. That being said, I would be very surprised if Inside Out doesn't win Animated. Anomalisa has plenty of acclaim, yes, but with the exceptions of Spirited Away (which was nominated against bigger films that weren't beloved) and Wallace & Gromit (which came out in a year when all of the big computer-animated studio films laid eggs), they've never gone with a smaller, non-CG movie in this category.

But back to the topic at hand: Spotlight makes the most sense for Best Picture as the race stands right now, but I'm doubtful as to whether the guilds will be as eager to award it as the critics are. With its setting in the world of print journalism and its focus on the process of compiling information, it's obviously going to appeal to people who write for a living. I could see Spotlight following the same path as Social Network and Boyhood, where the critics embrace it, but the industry ultimately goes for something else.

Well, we know it's not winning DGA. PGA seems iffy.

So a film on shaky ground with the top guilds, with a likely small number of overall nominations, with no shot at winning Best Director or any acting categories, is for fact winning Best Picture.

Got it. :thumbsup:

This is feeling like when American Hustle stormed out of the gate and ended up winning nothing.

3 or 4 Oscars - Picture, Director, Screenplay, possible Editing

Magnus is the fucking voice of reason. Spotlight will just go on to win BP/BD/Screenplay.

That's scary.

We should totally make a bet on whether or not Spotlight wins Best Director.

Each week this is looking less and less likely. It really needed something other than the "both Spotlight and The Big Short went home empty-handed at the Globes" headline.

Maybe it'll sweep at the BFCA on Sunday...

Okay, at this point, what is pointing to this winning? It's not even the critic darling, that's Mad Max. Outside of its subject matter being conventional for an Oscar win, it does not have that much steam right now. The Revenant and the Big Short have more going for them at this point.
