My 2015-2016 Oscar Predictions Part 1: The Outliers
Part 1: The Outliers
This group is made up of the categories celebrating whole films which are not up for Best Picture. These involve the shorts and the special full-length features. These can usually be the toughest predictions to make, considering the films are not that well known.
ANIMATED FEATURE FILM:
Boy and the World
Shaun the Sheep the Movie
When Marnie Was There
Okay, its obviously going to be Inside Out. This is Pixar’s return to form, and the Oscars already loves Pixar.
Prediction: Inside Out
FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM:
Embrace of the Serpent
Son of Saul
The only movie I’ve really been hearing about is Son of Saul. So… that one.
Prediction: Son of Saul
The Look of Silence
What Happened, Miss Simone?
Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom
The documentary category is tough, since the academy doesn’t always vote for the most popular or most recognized title. But I think in this case they will, and that would have to be Amy.
Body Team 12
Chau, beyond the Lines
Claude Lanzmann: Spectres of the Shoah
A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness
Last Day of Freedom
Hmm, do I go with the obvious Holocaust film? Or the more current issue of women’s rights in Islam? Never underestimate the Acadey’s need to give an award to all things Holocaust.
Prediction: Claude Lanzmann: Spectres of Shoah
ANIMATED SHORT FILM:
Sanjay’s Super Team
We Can’t Leave Without Cosmos
World of Tomorrow
Once again, the Disney backed film will win.
Prediction: Sanjay’s Super Team
LIVE ACTION SHORT FILM:
Everything Will Be Okay
I’m really just relying on the internet for this prediction. And most sites I read say Ave Maria. Maybe Shok.
Prediction: Ave Maria
