Spotlight
Which is, okay, MOST of them, but honestly, I was just tickled that Ex Machina and The Martian feature so heavily. For the first time ever, I've watched most of the films nominated but am trying to get up the courage to watch The Revenant. It looks so BRUTAL and I have never been convinced that Leonardo DiCaprio is a thing. You know who is a thing, though?
Mad Max
So there's that. It's also pretty much a lock for Best Picture and Best Director, so maybe I'll suck it up, cuddle up with some cocoa and watch Leo desecrate my Canadian wilderness. It's ALL MINE, I totes called it, so THERE! What are your predictions?
