The 88th Academy Awards will be presented Sunday night. Pop cultures websites all over have laid down their predictions, and we’ll find out soon who is right. The linked websites have predictions for all the major awards, and many also include their opinions of who should win if it’s different from their predictions. But I’ll just mention their prediction for Best Picture here.
The Atlantic predicts The Revenant.
The New Yorker calls it for The Revenant.
Uproxx predicts The Revenant.
The Week selects The Revenant.
The Daily Beast picks The Big Short.
Vulture goes with The Revenant.
Flavorwire predicts The Big Short.
The A.V. Club thinks it will be The Revenant.
CinemaBlend thinks it will be The Big Short.
Screen Rant predicts The Revenant.
FiveThirtyEight says it will be The Revenant.
Screen Junkies has a video, but it wouldn’t load for me.
In many of these articles, which movie the authors think will win is separated from which movie they want to win, and many of them are wistfully wishing for Mad Max: Fury Road to win Best Picture or Best Director.
