2017 Oscar Nominees [winners]:


I managed to watch more of the nominees this year before the actual show, which is small sort of accomplishment. One day, I may actually get to all of them in a timely manner. But that would probably require me to be a voter, so I could get the movies mailed directly to my house. We can start a campaign for that? Anyway, here are how my predictions stacked up against the results:
  • 13th (Documentary Feature)
  • Arrival (Best Picture, Best Director, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Film Editing, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Production Design)
  • Elle (Best Actress: Isabelle Huppert)
  • Fences (Best Picture, Best Actor: Denzel Washington, Best Supporting Actress: Viola Davis, Adapted Screenplay)

  • Hidden Figures (Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress: Octavia Spencer, Adapted Screenplay)
  • La La Land (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Ryan Gosling, Best Actress: Emma Stone, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Film Editing, Costume Design, Original Score, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Original Song: Audition (The Fools Who Dream), Original Song: City of Stars, Production Design)
  • Lion (Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor: Dev Patel, Best Supporting Actress: Nicole Kidman, Adapted Screenplay. Cinematography, Original Score)
  • Loving (Best Actress: Ruth Negga)
  • Manchester by the Sea (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Casey Affleck, Best Supporting Actor: Lucas Hedges, Best Supporting Actress: Michelle Williams, Original Screenplay)
  • Moana (Best Animated Feature)
  • Trolls (Original Song: Can't Stop the Feeling)


2016 Oscar Nominees [winners]

Sadly, there was no competition this year. It was probably for the best, as I was a bit behind and didn't get to quite as many of the nominees. But I still saw enough to make some pretty accurate guesses in my annual Oscar predictions post. All I can say, is go see Room. And The Big Short. And Spotlight.

  • The Big Short (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale, Adapted Screenplay, Film Editing)
  • Bridge of Spies (Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor: Mark Rylance, Original Screenplay, Original Score, Sound Mixing, Production Design)

  • The Martian (Best Picture, Best Actor: Matt Damon, Adapted Screenplay, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Visual Effects, Production Design)
  • Room (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress: Brie Larson, Adapted Screenplay)
  • Spotlight (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor: Mark Ruffalo, Best Supporting Actress: Rachel McAdams, Original Screenplay, Film Editing)
  • Steve Jobs (Best Actor: Michael Fassbender, Best Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet)
  • Trumbo (Best Actor: Bryan Cranston)


2015 Oscar Nominees [winners]:

The 2015 Oscars were fairly predictable, which made my picks looks especially smart. Also helping make me look good? Friends with bad picks. I know you were all waiting to know if I won another bet this year and I'm pleased to report I will get getting a large side of guac with my fish tacos. Because it's just not authentic Mexican food without guac. Especially if you call it guac.

Anyway, here is a handy guide to the Oscar nominated movies I have reviewed this year:
  • American Sniper (Best Picture, Best Actor: Bradley Cooper, Adapted Screenplay, Film Editing, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing)
  • Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Michael Keaton, Best Supporting Actor: Edward Norton, Best Supporting Actress: Emma Stone, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing)
  • Boyhood (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor: Ethan Hawke, Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette, Original Screenplay, Film Editing)
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel (Best Picture, Best Director, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Film Editing, Production Design, Costume Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Score
  • Ida (Foreign Language Film, Cinematography)
  • The Imitation Game (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Benedict Cumberbatch, Best Supporting Actress: Keira Knightly, Adapted Screenplay, Film Editing, Production Design, Original Score)
  • Into the Woods (Best Supporting Actress: Meryl Streep, Production Design, Costume Design)
  • The Judge (Best Supporting Actor: Robert Duvall)
  • The Theory of Everything (Best Picture, Best Actor: Eddie Redmayne, Best Actress: Felicity Jones, Adapted Screenplay, Original Score)
  • Whiplash (Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Adapted Screenplay, Film Editing, Sound Mixing)


2014 Oscar Nominees [winners]:

My 2014 Oscar predictions were slightly less successful than 2013 (I tried get too creative with my upsets), but still managed to finagle free fish tacos from a bet. And really, if you can't win free fish tacos, then predicting Oscar winners just isn't worth it.

But if you're lazy (like the 67% of Americans who said they hadn't seen a single Best Picture nominee), you probably never got around to reading the predictions in the first place (and may never do it). So here is a full list of all the 2014 Oscar nominated movies I got around to watching this year.

  • American Hustle (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Christian Bale, Best Supporting Actor: Bradley Cooper, Best Actress: Amy Adams, Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, Costume Design, Film Editing, Production Design, Original Screenplay)
  • Blue Jasmine (Best Actress: Cate Blanchett, Best Supporting Actress: Sally Hawkins, Original Screenplay)
  • Captain Phillips (Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor: Barkhad Abdi, Film Editing, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Adapted Screenplay)
  • Dallas Buyers Club (Best Picture, Best Actor: Matthew McConaughey, Best Supporting Actor: Jared Leto, Film Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Screenplay)
  • Frozen (Best Animated Feature, Original Song)
  • Gravity (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress: Sandra Bullock, Cinematography, Film Editing, Original Score, Production Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects)
  • Her (Best Picture, Original Score, Original Song, Production Design, Original Screenplay)
  • Nebraska (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Bruce Dern, Best Supporting Actress: June Squibb, Cinematography, Original Screenplay)
  • Philomena (Best Picture, Best Actress: Judi Dench, Original Score, Adapted Screenplay)
  • The Wolf of Wall Street (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio, Best Supporting Actor: Jonah Hill, Adapted Screenplay)


2013 Oscar Nominees [winners]:

Of course, you could just read my 2013 Oscar predictions, which contains a little snippet about each movie, but in case you're lazy and/or looking for a nominee outside of the major categories, here is a complete list below of every nominee I've watched and reviewed:

Side note: It also serves as a nice reminder that Hollywood likes to pick a handful of a movie and just nominate them in every category, whether or not they deserve it. Case in point: Lincoln, who went 2 for 12, with one of their wins being production design. And what's with Ted getting a nomination?!?

  • Amour (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress: Emmanuelle Riva, Foreign Language Film, Original Screenplay)
  • Anna Karenina (Cinematography, Costume Design, Original Score, Production Design)
  • Argo (Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor: Alan Arkin, Film Editing, Original Score, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Adapted Screenplay
  • Brave (Best Animated Feature)
  • Flight (Best Actor: Denzel Washington, Original Screenplay)
  • Les Miserables (Best Picture, Best Actor: Hugh Jackman, Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway, Costume Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Song, Production Design, Sound Mixing)
  • Life of Pi (Best Picture, Best Director, Cinematography, Film Editing, Original Score, Original Song, Production Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Adapted Screenplay)
  • Lincoln (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis, Best Supporting Actor: Tommy Lee Jones, Best Supporting Actress: Sally Field, Cinematography, Costume Design, Film Editing, Original Score, Production Design, Sound Mixing, Adapted Screenplay)
  • The Master (Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, Best Supporting Actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Best Supporting Actress: Amy Adams)
  • Silver Linings Playbook (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor: Bradley Cooper, Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, Best Supporting Actor: Robert DeNiro, Best Supporting Actress: Jacki Weaver, Film Editing, Adapted Screenplay)  
  • Skyfall (Cinematography, Original Score, Original Song, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing)
