My Oscar Predictions

Despite all the controversy, I really enjoyed watching the films nominated in each of the major categories this year.  I wish there was time for me to delve into the documentaries and the animated films, too.  In short, I love the movies.  And I enjoy the Oscars' celebration of them.  However, I do sincerely hope the Academy is serious about making changes that will enhance the opportunities for all races to star in leading roles as well as be recognized for their outstanding work.  It will only make the whole that much better!  And now for my preferences and predictions...

Best Picture 
(in order of my preference)
1 - Brooklyn
2 - Spotlight
3 - Room
4 - The Martian
5 - Bridge of Spies
6 - The Revenant
7 - The Big Short
8 - Mad Max: Fury Road

*However, I think The Revenant will win Best Picture and Directing this year.*

Actor - Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant)
Supporting Actor - Christian Bale (The Big Short)
Actress - Brie Larson (Room)
Supporting Actress - Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight)

*In case you missed it yesterday, check out the reasoning behind my selections in the Actor and Actress categories here.*

Regardless of which individuals take home the golden statues, I'm looking forward to an exciting show with Chris Rock at the helm on Sunday!  Cheers to another wonderful year of movies!
