Washington Post movie critics picked the movies they think will win, should win and should have been nominated at the Academy Awards this year. The only name on Best Actor's list that really matters is Leonardo DiCaprio. Barring some unthinkable fraud, he has this category locked down
Industry watchers have been hard-pressed this year to predict which movies and actors will be headed for glory at the Academy Awards on February 28. About the only sure thing that pundits agree on? A nomination for Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant - a big winner at Golden Globes with three prizes
In the race for Best Actor in a Drama Film, Leonardo DiCaprio appears well ahead for his strong performance as legendary fur trapper Hugh Glass in The Revenant. Critics are widely predicting the 41-year-old actor will take home his first Oscar for the role. "The Globes historically has predicted 75 percent of the Oscars"
Nominations for the 59th Filmfare Awards have been announced and, predictably, the list veers towards popular choices. Critically acclaimed films like Lootera and The Lunchbox are conspicuous by their absence from the Best Film and Best Director categories, and scoop just one acting nomination each. Oscar entry The Good Road is missing entirely.
