2015 Oscar Predictions: April Update

Really, not much has changed at all. I added Brooklyn, Carol and In The Heart Of The Sea to more categories, and I still have very strong faith in Room.

There are three categories where I changed my predicted winner. First, Best Supporting Actress went from Kristen Stewart in Clouds Of Sils Mara to Emma Stone in Irrational Man. Woody Allen has a talent for getting his actors oscars, particularly in the Supporting Actress category. If Emma Stone is pushed supporting, (the role seems to be borderline) she could potentially win.

Also, Best Production Design went from Bridge Of Spies to The Hateful Eight. I’m pretty sure about this one. Also, I’m now predicting Inside Out to win Original Song over Ricki & The Flash. Really, it’s a moot point. For all I know, neither film will end up having original songs.
