Putting them down here, so I can’t claim to have been right if I was wrong.
Best Actor: Leo DiCaprio. Overdue and deserved.
Best Actress: Saoirse Ronan. Looking for an upset over Brie Larson here.
Best Picture: The Revenant. I’d like to see Spotlight win, but I think the momentum of Leo and director will pull this overlong, over-somber film along.
Best Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu.
Supporting Actor: Sly Stallone, because it’s an uplifting story. The others were all good, too. Especially liked Mark Rylance in Bridge of Spies.
Supporting Actress: Rooney Mara. She was wonderful in Carol.
Animated Feature: Inside Out. The return of Pixar.
Cinematography: The Revenant.
Costume Design: Mad Max.
Film Editing: Mad Max.
Foreign Language: Mustang. No idea, trusting others here.
Original Score: Carol.
Original Song: Till It Happens to You.
Production Design: Mad Max.
Sound: The Revenant.
Adapted Screenplay: The Big Short.
Original Screenplay: Spotlight, with Inside Out close behind.

As a journalist and former newspaper guy, so happy for Spotlight.
It could be either the Revenant, Spotlight, or the Big Short for Best Picture. That’s really the only thing up in the air. Everything else? Not so much.
