The Oscars 2016

It’s that time once more, to pat people on the back for doing a good job while everyone else debates whether that was the best picture of the year or not. Yes, the Oscars are here again. The nominations were announced last Thursday (14th Jan) and here are all the runners and riders for you to pick your winners. Leading the pack with 12 nominations is the western The Revenant while Mad Max: Fury Road isn’t too far behind with 10.

The Oscars are announced on Sunday 29th February

Highlighted in red are my predictions. Green star will be the actual winners.
