7:22 am
i had problems with the academy awards but i tuned in to see what would happen. i think the academy awards got out of touch for decades. i lost my faith in the oscars when they gave shakespeare love the picture over saving private. ryan. this year where a star wars for backs picture. where is creed or do cardio, they left out so many great films. moving on now to the predictions, best director, i think it will go to allie hunter. he won last year for bird man. this film was shot with all natural lighting and beautifully photographed by emanuel lubinski. bird man, might when again this year. for the rabbinate, a beautiful film and shot in the elements. a tough shoot. i really want george miller to win for mad max. one of the best films of all time.
7:23 am
this film blew my mind. i would love to see george miller when. supporting actor, stallone may take it home this year. he did not when the best actor for the original act role in rocky. stallone did when the golden globe and the critics choice but was not nominated for sag. but the academy voters, the actors are the largest part of the voters. we will see what happens. i think stallone has it to when. -- win. he finds out that he is sick and that seemed to my mind. best performance of his career so far. best supporting actress, most up in the air for me, alisha of the commander will take home the award but kate winslet deserves the award. the danish girl, she was phenomenal.
7:24 am
kate winslet took home the golden globe. i think that for candor takes home the award. moving on to best actor, this category i feel like is a stone cold hit. leonardo dicaprio will finally win for best actress -- actor. he has been nominated four times but has never won this award. i think you should of won last year for wall street. he became hugh blatt and will take home his first golden statue. best actress, brie larson for room. what an incredible film. she deserves denomination. brie larson is fantastic. she stayed in her apartment for a month to prepare so she could get her skin to look pale. in the movie she is in the room for seven years raising her son.
7:25 am
she won all of the awards but keep an eye out for a surprise. finally, best picture. i think now it is a big tossup. it could be rabbinate for spotlight. rabbinate has the scenes. allie hunter won the de ga award. they have aligned with best picture eight out of the last 10 years. i think right now the safe bet for best picture is the revenant . spotlight when the sag award and that is a big indicator. actors are the largest branch of the oscars. we will see what happens. best picture will win, the revenant. mad max fury road should when -- win and i do think it was the best film of 2015. i will be tweeting along all oscar night. i am kevin mccarthy.
7:26 am
