Guild Award Catch-Up!

So, I’ve been away from this blog for a while due to some unfortunate computer errors. This is just a quick little update post to get my blog back in shape, while also catching up with some guild awards.


Picture: Spotlight
Actor: Paul Dano – Love & Mercy
Actress: Bel Powley – The Diary Of A Teenage Girl
Screenplay: Spotlight
Breakthrough Actor: Mya Taylor – Tangerine
Breakthrough Director: Jonas Carpigano – Meditteranea
Audience Award: Tangerine

I’m starting to think Dano is a legitimate contender for the Oscar. Also, how does Bel Powley manage to beat Larson, Blanchett and Tomlin? Maybe the Joker is right: Madness is running Gotham.

By the way, Tangerine is available on Netflix. I’ll likely be seeing that soon.


Picture: Mad Max Fury Road
Director: The Martian
Actor: Matt Damon – The Martian
Actress: Brie Larson – Room
Sup. Actor: Sylvester Stallone – Creed
Sup. Actress: Jennifer Jason Leigh – The Hateful Eight
Original Screenplay: The Hateful Eight
Adapted Screenplay: The Martian
Animated Film: Inside Out
Foreign Film: Son Of Saul

This is very good news for Fury Road. SInce 1991, only one film has won Picture and failed to receive an Oscar nomination. However, the one exception to the rule was just last year, so you never know. Also, yay Brie Larson!


Picture: Carol
Director: Todd Haynes – Carol
Actor: Michael Keaton – Spotlight
Actress: Saorise Ronan – Brooklyn
Sup. Actor: Mark Rylance – Bridge Of Spies
Sup. Actress: Kristen Stewart – Clouds Of Sils Maria
Screenplay: Carol
Cinematography: Carol
Animated Film: Inside Out
Foreign Film: Timbuktu
First Film: Son Of Saul

Man, I hope Kristen Stewart doesn’t become a thing. I don’t need to listen to a bunch of people who haven’t seen Zathura talking about how she’s never showed more emotion. Also, excited for Carol, I really need to see that. And what does Keaton in lead here mean for his chances at the Oscars?

Coming soon: Best Of The Best Pictures: Adapted Screenplay, my review of Brooklyn, and more coverage of future award shows, all in the coming weeks.
