Between #OscarSoWhite, the world campaign for Leo’s win and the “Oscar” gift bag drama, I can’t say that my social feeds have known anything other than Oscar fever this last month. Immersed in entertainment, living in Los Angeles and currently a stones throw from this year’s Vanity Fair Party, I can’t say that I’d have it any other way either. In celebration of today I’ve put together my predictions, what to look out for in year’s show and some all time crazy Awards fashion through the years.
I read an article recently in W Magazine that outlined longstanding Hollywood editor and author Lynn Hirschberg’s predictions for this years Oscar’s winners and I really couldn’t have summed it up better. My more passionate predictions (or really wishes) include:
- Best Picture: The Revenant (Although I LOVED The Big Short)
- Actor in a Leading Role: Leonardo DiCaprio The Revenant (although in truth I really think it should be Leo’s retroactively for every movie he should of won for)
- Actress in a Leading Role: Brie Larson for Room
- Actor in a Supporting Role: Tom Hardy for The Revenant
- Cinematography: The Revenant
- Costume Design: Mad Max: Fury Road
- Makeup and Hairstyling: Mad Max: Fury Road
- Directing: The Revenant
What to Look Out for this Year
- How Chris Rock will address the #OscarSoWhite fiasco.
- In an effort to keep this year’s speeches shorter and more emotional, nominees have submitted their list of names for who they want to thank. These names will scroll along the bottom of the screen during their speech.
- This year’s stage will featuring 200,000 Swarovski Crystals that required 1,600 hours of work to put together.
- And of course, if Leo actually wins
Steven Spielberg’s White House Correspondence address in 2013 is an almost poignant telltale for the Academy today.
