My favourite so far for Best Picture: Brooklyn!

Biggest surprise: Creed. I loved it. LOVED it. I have never seen a Rocky movie before but it did not matter. Michael B. Jordan, enough said.
My goal is to see all of the Best Pictures + Best Actors/Actress + Best Supporting Actors/Actress. Meaning, I still need to watch: 45 Years, The Big Short, The Danish Girl, The Hateful Eight, Joy, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant, Trumbo
The movie I really want to see: Mustang (Foreign Language Film). I read this and am intrigued.
The movie I don’t want to watch but will watch: Mad Max: Fury Road
Movies you can watch on Netflix (Canada): Cinderella, The 100-Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window, The Hunting Ground, What Happened, Miss Simone, Winter on Fire, Ukraine’s fight for freedom
Number of movies I watched since the nominations were announced on Thursday: 6.5
Best description I’ve heard about the movie The Revenant: “It’s like Kill Bill, but in slow motion, in the woods, with animals”.
How’s your score? Any predictions? Will Leo win?
