Well, Tom Hardy had a really good year appearing in two of the Best Picture Nominated films and getting a Supporting Actor Nomination from one of them.

Also, Mad Max: Fury Road cleaned up with the nomination along with The Revenant.

I'm a little surprised there is nothing for Love and Mercy, which had a lot of great performances.

I'm not shocked, this is the Academy Awards we're talking about, they bypass great films and acting performances every year.

Thinking of the possibility "MM:FR" will win BP, I looked to see the last time a movie won BP but didn't get a nom for Best Screenplay - "Titanic" was the last one.


Usually the BP winner also gets one of the 2 Screenplay awards, and it's exceedingly rare the BP goes to a movie not even nominated for Screenplay.


I stopped poking around after going back 20 years. Anyone know of other BP winners that weren't nominated for Best Screenplay?

To be fair, there are only so many nominations to go around - it'd be impossible for the Academy to pick all of the worthy performances...

Early thoughts on the acting awards:


Best Actor - probably Leo's to lose, I think he's the favorite. (might be a body of work oscar at this point...)


Best Actress - Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan are the 2 I'm rooting for, though the other 3 are more well-known.


Best Supporting Actor - Probably a race between Tom Hardy and Sly Stallone.


Best Supporting Actress - Alicia Vikander is my pick. She carried that movie for the most part.

Very true, but over the years, I've seen too many Oscar snubs to give them a pass. I used to be a big fan of the Oscars, but over the years, I've become more cynical and less trustworthy of this political/popularity process.

Lots of support for The Revenant (the new frontronner) and Mad Max, both probably a bit more than most expected (except for me with the latter; I was hoping the lack of support for Joy would have allowed for Theron to grab Lawrence's spot). Solid support for The Martian (but no Scott is a shock), Spotlight, and Room, with the Directing nom for Abrahamson probably the biggest surprise of all the nominees. Support for Carol really dropped off with no Picture or Director noms (McKay and The Big Short seems to have pushed it and Haynes aside there at the end). Sorkin with no nom for the screenplay for Steve Jobs is another small miss, but honestly, aside from Fassbender and Winslet that movie had no pull. I loved it, but whaddya gonna do?

Otherwise, things went pretty much as expected, IMO.

How many of these 2016 nominations did you see? I've viewed six of the eight. The two I haven't viewed, never played in my area.
I'm shocked I've seen nearly everything in almost every category (excepting the foreign and documentaries- I ain't got no culture) and while I definitely prefer some over others, I think it's a pretty solid list overall.

I'm never in step with the Oscar voters but I think The Revenant- while being a solid movie- is the weakest of the nominees. There's much better movies that didn't get even nominations.

I thought Jennifer Jason Leigh was terrific in Hateful Eight. If that film was to receive only one major nomination, it doesn't surprise me that she got it.

I think it's a really good list of nominees. I've seen 5 of the 8 BP nominees. The Revenant seems to have all the momentum at the moment.

Looks like a former favorite Spotlight might only win the Screenplay award. Looking forward to seeing it next week.
