Anywho, I'm here today to share with you the 2016 nominees for the Oscars. They were announced last week on January 14th and they are everywhere on the internet, but I love being able to share them with you because I love movies so much! Without further ado, here are the nominees...
The Nominees For Best Picture Are -
I've only seen 4 of the 8 movies that are nominated (The Big Short, The Revenant, The Martian, and Mad Max). I think that The Revenant will take home this award. It's amazing in every possible way!
The Nominees For Actor In A Leading Role Are -
PS - Even if Will Smith or Michael B. Jordan were nominated, I still don't think they would win. It's Leo's year!
The Nominees For Actress In A Leading Role Are -
I haven't seen any of these movies and I really hope they get to Redbox or I'm going to be making a crazy movie weekend at the movie theater. I really don't want JLaw to win. Brie Larson is getting all the hype for Room and I think she has an amazing shot at winning.
The Nominees For Actor In A Supporting Role Are -
Sly Stallone is the favorite to win, since he won the Golden Globe. However, Tom Hardy was fantastic in The Reverant.
The Nominees For Actress In A Supporting Role Are -
I haven't seen any of these movies either. I love Kate Winslet and the fact that she sent a selfie with no makeup to the director for Steve Jobs. She won the Golden Globe for this role and I think she'll win the Oscar as well.
Here are some of the other categories and the nominee that I think is going to take the Oscar home:
Animated Feature Film - Inside Out
Cinematography - The Reverant
Costume Design - Cinderella
Directing - The Revenant
Film Editing - The Revenant
Foreign Language Film - Son of Saul
Makeup and Hairstyling - Mad Max: Fury Road
Original Score - The Hateful Eight
Original Song - "Writing's on the Wall," Spectre
Production Design - Mad Max: Fury Road
Sound Editing - Mad Max: Fury Road
Sound Mixing - Mad Max: Fury Road
Visual Effects - Mad Max: Fury Road
Adapted Screenplay - The Big Short
Original Screenplay - Spotlight
If you haven't seen Mad Max: Fury Road, then you should definitely check it out. It is an absolutely crazy ride. Literally. It is non-stop. Visually it is amazing and I think that it's going to win a lot of the sound awards. If it doesn't, then I think The Revenant will take them. There are some categories that I did not include, because I have absolutely no idea about them. You can see a full list of all categories and nominees HERE.
