Listen Up, Academy Members: Here's What The Oscar Nominations Should Look Like
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Oscar voting began Wednesday, giving members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences until Jan. 8 to submit their ballots for this year's prizes. We figure they need a little help in deciding which darlings should make the shortlist when nominations are announced on Jan. 14. With studios' campaigns entering the homestretch, The Huffington Post's movie gurus, Matthew Jacobs and Joe Satran, have some suggestions to help the Academy make the tough choices. In an Oscar derby as open-ended as this one, anything could happen. Here are two perspectives on what should. BEST PICTURE Joe: "Bridge of Spies" "Goodnight Mommy" "Ex Machina" "The Hateful Eight" "Joy" "Mad Max: Fury Road" "The Martian" "Room" "Spotlight" "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"            You wouldn't want to be the protagonist of many of these movies. Most of them suffered tremendously. (And I didn't even include "The Revenant," perhaps the most brutal of them all!) But the skillful filmmaking that w ...

National Board Of Review Names 'Mad Max: Fury Road' The Year's Best Movie
Huffington Post - about 1 year
What a lovely day for "Mad Max: Fury Road," which just earned an Oscar boost thanks to the National Board of Review. The New York-based film organization named George Miller's feminist dystopian reboot the year's best movie.  Because it's one of the first major film prizes announced each year, the NBR's awards wield a strong, if sometimes spotty, hand in forecasting the Oscars. Of the 15 most recent films selected for the NBR's top award, 13 have gone on to earn Best Picture nominations. Last year's left-field choice, "A Most Violent Year," surprised awards prognosticators, and "Mad Max" is in a similar position because, as a big-budget epic released in May, its Oscar potential is one of the season's biggest question marks. One might say, in terms of awards odds, that it lived, died and now lives again. But "A Most Violent Year" was snubbed across the board when the 2015 Oscar list was announced, so transmit good vibes, "Fury Road" fans. The movie has to keep momentum alive until ...
