(Missing out the categories that I've either seen none of the films of or don't know enough about to vote on)

Best Film: I've only seen Bridge of Spies so far, but I'll be seeing TBS, The Revenant and Spotlight in the next couple of weeks. The joys of delayed British releases!

Best British: I'd love to see The Lobster get it just to expose more people to its sheer weirdness- it is a genuinely good film too and deserves to get some recognition. Brooklyn is my prediction though.

Best Debut: Alex Garland

Best Animated: Inside Out

Best Director: I'm holding out until I see the upcoming films, but from the early buzz and his previous work I'm guessing Inarittu stands a good chance

Best original screenplay: Holding out for Hateful Eight (seeing it on Monday :woo:) and Spotlight, but I'm guessing it's going to be one of those two.

Best Adapted: Again, can't really predict until they release the rest, but I would guess at Brooklyn

Best Actor: I'm predicting DeCaprio will get it just to cushion the blow when he doesn't get the Oscar again :ahee: But yeah, I haven't seen enough of them yet, but of the ones I have seen I'd like Fassbinder to get it. I love Matt Damon but his performance didn't feel enough for the highest accolades imo.

Best Actress: Vikander or Ronan

Supporting Actor: I've only seen Sicario and BoS, but it sounds like it could go to any of them. Del Toro gets my vote, Elba gets my prediction

Supporting actress: Vikander or Winslet

Best Music: I'll wait for The Revenant before guessing.

Costume Design: Putting aside my undeniable adoration for the film, Fury Road's costumes were phenomenal. Although it's always tricky to compare well realised historical costumes with entirely fictional ones.

Make up and Hair: Predicting Danish Girl, but once again I think Fury Road knocked it out of the park and would like to see it recognised.

Best sound: I swear I'm not just fanboying over Fury Road, the sound direction was astonishing in combination with the score.

Visual effects: I'll let you guess who I want to win. It gets my prediction too.

Best film: I haven't seen The Big Short or Spotlight yet but Carol would be my favourite of the other three. Although there is a real injustice in no nomination for either Mad Max or Inside Out.

Director: George Miller should have been nominated but hopefully Scott wins.

Actor: Fassbender for Steve Jobs. Di Caprio should have won for The Wolf of Wall Street a few years ago.

Actress: I have a feeling I'm going to love Room so I'll reserve judgement until then but my favourite for now is Maggie Smith for The Lady in the Van.

Supporting Actor: Mark Rylance for Bridge of Spies.

Supporting Actress: Rooney Mara was a lead in Carol so I'd probably go either Winslet or Vikander.

British Film: Really looking forward to seeing The Lobster but for now my favourite is Ex Machina. Alex Garland will probably take best British debut as well.

Animation: Inside Out is a masterpiece. No contest.

Original screenplay: Haven't seen The Hateful Eight or Spotlight yet but Inside Out is the best of the rest.

Adapted Screenplay: Steve Jobs for now but still to see The Big Short and Room.

Hopefully Mad Max sweeps the technical categories. I hope the terribly overrated Star Wars leaves empty handed.

My predictions of who should win based on what I've seen so far!

(Original post by Mackay)
Who should win then, folks?

Best film

Carol

Outstanding British film
45 Years

Outstanding debut by British writer, director or producer
Alex Garland (director, Ex Machina). Although I haven't seen Theeb or A Syrian Love Story

Best film not in the English language
The Assassin. Need to watch Force Majeure on Netflix soon!

Best documentary
Actually haven't seen any of these - shame on me! - but I think Amy will win? They all seem quite good actually!

Best animated film
Inside Out will win but Anomalisa should have been nominated here.

Best director
Todd Haynes, Carol

Best original screenplay
Ex Machina or Inside Out. Haven't seen Spotlight yet.

Best adapted screenplay
Room

Best actor
Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs

Best actress
Brie Larson or Cate Blanchett. Although Charlotte Rampling should have been nominated here.

Best supporting actor
Idris Elba, Beasts of No Nation

Best supporting actress
Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina

Best cinematography
Carol

To be honest, on the technical categories I'm not an expert but I think it'll be between something fairly obvious like Carol for production, costume, make-up and hair etc. Or it'll be for Mad Max for editing, effects etc.

we're hoping for a Carol win for cinematography and Brooklyn for Best UK Film! Also, we reckon that Leo is *finally* going to get his Oscar- especially following his Golden Globe win!

The ceremony's on now, I'm bolding the winners in the OP as they're announced

My predictions have been, for the most part, very wrong so far :ahee:

I will be SO annoyed if Leo doesn't win Best Actor for The Revenant. Just give it to him already!

Worthy winners for the most part, Leo's one step closer to that Oscar. Glad to see Fury Road's strong performance in the technical categories, aside from Star Wars robbing it of the visual effects award (SW was great, but Mad Max was a revelation of practical effects). Boyega beating Larson to the rising star award sucks, but when Room only shows up in UK cinemas a couple of weeks before the awards ceremony and Star Wars being, well, Star Wars, it's not surprising that one of its stars did better in a user-voted award.
