2015 Oscar Predictions

It's only summer, but here's an ignorant stab at the 2015 Oscars anyway, well before there's any substantial evidence in its regard (save recent festival premieres "Foxcatcher," "Mr. Turner," "Boyhood," "Whiplash" and "The Grand Budapest Hotel," the latter of which -- given its glowing reviews and sizable box office -- could very well make for Wes Anderson's first best picture nomination).  So with that in mind, here they are, clearly not to be taken seriously until at least September:

    I know it's way too early to talk about but Kung Fu Panda 3 will be released next year on...Christmas time...hmmm...sounds suspicious...

  • Brett | July 5, 2014 3:38 AMReply

    Life Itself is gonna win Best Documentary, it's pretty obvious. Whenever there's a documentary involving politics or media entertainment it always wins

  • Spencer | June 5, 2014 7:24 PMReply

    Definitely keep an eye out on 'The Case Against 8' as a contender for Best Documentary. Saw it on Tuesday and I was at the edge of my seat from start to finish

  • Brett | May 29, 2014 11:37 AMReply

    Why are so many people talking about Inherent Vice as a sure win? I wouldn't mind it because I love Paul Thomas Anderson, but we haven't seen anything about it! Why are so many people predicting it will win?!

  • Sarah | May 29, 2014 11:21 AMReply

    My Prediction:

    Best Picture : Inherent Vice
    Best Director : Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher)
    Best Actor : Joaquin Phoenix (Inherent Vice)
    Best Actress : Amy Adams (Big Eyes)
    Best Supp. Actor : J.K. Simmons (Whiplash)
    Best Supp. Actress : Viola Davis (Get On Up)

  • msrk | May 26, 2014 3:23 AMReply

    Why do you even write such pointless drivel? Its not even June and you name 30 or more posssible actors? Lazy and useless.

  • Brett | May 27, 2014 11:33 AM

    It's for fun, lighten up

  • Hackman | May 11, 2014 2:31 PMReply

    Best Actor - Joaquin Phoenix (Inherent Vice)
    Best Actress - Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl)
    Best Supporting Actor - Johnny Depp (Into the Woods)
    Best Supporting Actress - Meryl Streep (Into the Woods)

  • Brett | April 17, 2014 11:39 AMReply

    I think it's possible we could get another animated film in the Best Picture category and one of them could be either The Lego Movie or How to Train your Dragon 2

  • Atahualpa | July 17, 2014 10:22 AM

    I don't think it. They're great but not for a Best Picture award.

  • Brett | April 17, 2014 11:36 AMReply

    I think the Academy should add these categories:
    Best Leading Male Voice in an Animated Feature
    Best Leading Female Voice in an Animated Feature
    Best Supporting Male Voice in an Animated Feature
    Best Supporting Female Voice in an Animated Feature
    Best Choreographer
    Best Stunt Double

  • Jordan | July 14, 2014 8:08 PM

    I agree with Best Stunts and Choreography. Maybe add best ensemble cast

  • John | May 26, 2014 12:54 PM

    LOL hell no. There are so few (worthy) animated movies, it doesn't even deserve it's own "Best" category.

  • Brett | April 9, 2014 5:22 PMReply

    I think it's possible Jon Favreau could get his first nomination for Chef (Screenplay only)

  • Brett | April 4, 2014 3:55 AMReply

    I'm already predicting The Lego Movie will win Best Animated Feature

  • Argie | July 17, 2014 10:26 AM

    remember How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Big Hero 6...
