Predicting 2016 Oscars Nominations

The Oscars 2016 Poster

Here we are, after several weeks of critics and guilds announcing and puzzling, we have arrived at our first stop. Frankly it all seems about the Oscars. This rush of sorts to be like the Oscars or best foresee the outcome the earlier, the glorious. Predictions is a funny business where you think too much and you have so much to think about but are rarely right about the whole thing. This season in particular, very laid back surprising in its formless and shapelessness.

At this point, any film can be considered in danger. Or most. I can go on individually but I don't have the energy to do that. Please check out my predictions below:
