Is Spotlight This Years Best Picture?

spotlight-one-sheet

SPOTLIGHT is about The Pulitzer prize-winning Boston Globe team who uncovered a massive child molestation cover-up within the local Catholic archdiocese. Stars Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams.

After SPOTLIGHT premiered at Telluride it immediately shot up to the top of the prediction list at Gold Derby to win Best Picture.

CaptureAll 19 out of the “Oscar Experts” are predicting at least a nomination with 9 predicting the win. Steve Jobs is a far 2nd with 2 experts predicting it to win. Last year at this time BOYHOOD was predicted to win with BIRDMAN a very close 2nd. Throughout the season we saw it go back and forth numerous times, finally landing on BIRDMAN. The chart above will change dramatically as more of the movie are the list are seen. The experts are still waiting for THE REVENANT, JOY, THE HATEFUL EIGHT and BRIDGE OF SPIES. Any one of these could take the top spot.

The films not on the chart, but still n play are:
THE MARTIAN
YOUTH
TRUTH
BROOKLYN
CONCUSSION
BEASTS OF NO NATION
MAD MAX:FURY ROAD
SUFFRAGETTE
SICARIO
TRUMBO
CREED
STAR WARS:THE FORCE AWAKENS
THE HEART OF THE SEA
THE BIG SHORT
