All of the Oscar nominees for 2016 have been revealed!!

You can see the full list here but, let’s face it, there are some categories that we’re all a little more excited to see who the wins, the ones that everyone talks about….
And even though we haven’t all seen every movie, here is what everyone in the studio thinks (or at least hopes!) will win:


Best Picture: The Revenant, hands down. Believe the hype.
Actor: Leo in “The Revenant” !!!! (Ok, I loved this movie!)
Actress: Cate Blanchett is a fellow Aussie and my ultimate girl crush.
Supporting Actor: Giving this one to Bale.
Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet. The year of Kate / Cate!
Directing: Alejandro G. Iñárritu. Basically, “The Revenant” is the “Titanic” of 2016.

Best Picture: “The Big Short”  – kind of terrifying, knowing how Wall Street works, but completely amusing.
Actor: Matt Damon in “The Martian” – because I haven’t seen the others and he was funny.
Actress: Cate Blanchett in “Carol” – again, only film I saw, but so beautiful, she owned that role with a vengeance.
Supporting Actor: Christian Bale in “The Big Short” – as before, I do love Bale though.
Supporting Actress: This one’s a tie, I thought both were great. Rooney Mara and Kate Winslet.
Directing: “Mad Max: Fury Road” George Miller

Best Picture: “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Only one I’ve seen, so yay!
Actor: Eddie Redmayne in “The Danish Girl” – Haven’t seen any, but he’s the cutest, so yay!
Actress: Cate Blanchett in “Carol” – Again, haven’t seen any, but she will always win my heart.
Supporting Actor: NO THANKS. PASS.
Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet in “Steve Jobs” – Titanic is my favorite movie.
Directing: “The Revenant” Alejandro G. Iñárritu – Haven’t seen it, but nobody should spend that much time in that harsh of an environment.

Based on who I like generally…
