2016 Academy Awards: My Winners

On January 14th, Oscar Nominees and Nominations have been announced! Like I did last year, I wanted to say my opinion on who should win (because, you know, I'm such an expert!) basing my picks on personal feelings BUT also on who's most likely to win...

Last year, I score 2 out of 8 AGAIN (Best Actore & Actress in a Leading Role), but this year is even harder to choose since there are a lot of amazing movies and talented actors/actresses in the run!  

So let's begin!

Bridge Of Spies

The Martian
The Revenant

When Marnie Was There

Best Foreign Language Film:
Embrace Of The Serpent (Colombia)
Mustang (France)
Son Of Saul (Hungary)

Theeh (Jordan)
A War (Denmark)

And now I want to explain why I made these choices! 

First of all let me start with not one BUT TWO complains:
Dear Academy, why on Earth didn't you nominate Steve Carell as Best Actor in a Leading Role for his Mark Baum in "The Big Short"? Seriously, he was amazing! 
And second, why LeBron James did not receive a nomination for portraying himself in Trainwreck"? Seriously, I'm kidding!

I'm not one of those Leo di Caprio's fan, in fact I belive the Academy should have given him an Oscar A LOOONG ago, and even if it's very likely that he'll win this year, even Matt Damon has his fair chance to make it.

As far as it is concerned the best actresses I stick with my choices, even if I'm I'd love to be wrong and see Saoirse Ronan winning...Brooklyn is a must see, anyway!

And now the only thing we can do is to wait until 28th of February to see if I'm right or wrong with my picks!

I'm curious....who are your winners?
