Oscars 2016 (88th Academy Awards)

It’s all happening today at 7E/4P on ABC! (True fans will be all over the red carpet shows long before that, though.) Unfortunately, due to the options in my area, I haven’t had a chance to see all of the films this year, but I have seen a good portion of them. Some I’m still looking forward to seeing as soon as they’re out on DVD and streaming (Spotlight, Room, The Big Short), but others feel a bit like studying after the test. (I’m looking at you, 45 Years.) The Revenant and Mad Max: Fury Road hold the most nominations, but I think they’ll clean up in different ways, with Mad Max being rewarded in most of the design/editing categories. It’s always anyone’s guess with the short films, so good luck!

Here are my predictions:
