It’s Oscar weekend, and I’m here today to reprise the predictions Kris and I made for last year’s show (which you can check out in A Completely Biased & Uninformed Look at the 2015 Oscar Nominations if you are interested). We are totally into movies, but we’re not so into award-winning movies necessarily. Case in point: I’ve seen exactly four of the movies that appear on the nominees list at all: Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Cinderella, Inside Out, and Straight Outta Compton – and only one of these has been nominated in any of the categories we’re actually predicting today. So basically, welcome to this year’s completely biased and totally uninformed Oscar predictions 2016, provided by Kris and I.
- If I win, Kris has to write a blog post in support of #babygate (if you don’t know what this is, check it out. Directioners have gone rogue)
- If Kris wins, I have to write a post about why Alec is the best character on Shadowhunters/in the Mortal Instruments series (including how dreamy he looks… just like Will❤️)
Best Actor in a Supporting Role
Christian Bale, “The Big Short”
Tom Hardy, “The Revenant”
Mark Ruffalo, “Spotlight”
Mark Rylance, “Bridge of Spies”
Sylvester Stallone, “Creed”
KG: I pick Sylvester Stallone. I mean, I’m pretty sure he won’t win, but how can I not pick Sylvester Stallone?
Kris: Last year I choose “Mark Ruffalo because he’s the Hulk”… This year I choose Mark Ruffalo because he’s a hunk.
Best Actress in a Supporting Role
Jennifer Jason Leigh, “The Hateful Eight”
Rooney Mara, “Carol”
Rachel McAdams, “Spotlight”
Alicia Vikander, “The Danish Girl”
Kate Winslet, “Steve Jobs”
Kris: I’m going with Alicia Vikander, but not because of The Danish Girl. I did not see The Danish Girl, nor will I probably ever see The Danish Girl… but remember Ex Machina? I choose her because of Ex Machina.
KG: I pick Kate Winslet, because she seems like the type to win things like this… and if Leo and Kate both win awards at this show, Justine’s fangirl hear would explode.
Bryan Cranston, “Trumbo”
Matt Damon, “The Martian”
Leonardo DiCaprio, “The Revenant”
Michael Fassbender, “Steve Jobs”
Eddie Redmayne, “The Danish Girl”
KG: I pick Leo. Because apparently it might be his year. Justine wrote a whole post about it.
Kris: Michael Fassbender. Totes dreamy plus very talented. Although I feel bad to be cheering against Leo, those are the rules.
Cate Blanchett, “Carol”
Brie Larson, “Room”
Jennifer Lawrence, “Joy”
Charlotte Rampling, “45 Years”
Saoirse Ronan, “Brooklyn”
Kris: I pick Brie Larson because I have seen none of these movies but I have at least read Room. Plus imagine how excited the adorable kid that starred with her be if she won an Oscar (and I’m a tad over J-Law, even though I still love her).
KG: I’m going to take a shot in the dark and pick Saoirse Ronan… for no reason other than I just feel like it. I have no idea who she is, or what Brooklyn is about. I’m just feeling this pick. (Plus she’s so cute! Which I discovered while making the below graphic)
Best Animated Feature
“Boy and the World”
“Shaun the Sheep”
“When Marnie Was There”
KG: I pick Inside Out, because I saw it and it was cute.
Kris: I wanna pick Inside Out, but I had to go second so I pick Boy and the World because I saw the movie poster once & it looked cool.
“The Big Short”
“Bridge of Spies”
“Mad Max: Fury Road”
Kris: I really want to pick Mad Max: Fury Road because it was an AMAZING movie… but an Oscar movie? No. So I’m going to go with The Revenant because I couldn’t pick Leo earlier and it was filmed by my home!
KG: I’m going to pick The Martian because I’ve heard of it and I’m not enough of a risk-taker to pick Mad Max.
Well, there you have it! Tune back in to find out who wins, and to see the loser pay their dues. What are your Oscar predictions 2016? Are we totally off-base? Let us know in the comments (seriously… we won’t be offended… we have no idea about any of this).
KG (… and Kris!)
