Everyone, if not all, will be tuning in on the upcoming Oscars 2016 while betting on their favourite movies and actors.
No wonder this is the Hollywood’s biggest night of all and of course, there are predictions on who will bag the most awards.
Here are Yahoo Movies predictions on major categories in this year’s Academy Awards.
Best Picture Nominees
- The Big Short
- Bridge of Spies
- Mad Max: Fury Road
- The Martian
- The Revenant
For Yahoo Movies, “The Revenant” will win the trophy, but it also mentioned that we should not be surprised if “Spotlight or The Big Short” will have it. It was earlier reported that the three films have garnered a lot of attention in the lead up to the Oscars this year.
Best Director Nominees
- Lenny Abrahamson, Room
- Alejandro González Iñárritu, The Revenant
- Tom McCarthy, Spotlight
- Adam McKay, The Big Short
- George Miller, Mad Max: Fury Road
Yahoo Movies noted it’s a win for “The Revenant” director Alejandro González Iñárritu. Again, expect a close battle from George Miller of “Mad Max: Fury Road” and Adam McKay of “The Big Short.”
Best Actor Nominees
- Bryan Cranston, Trumbo
- Matt Damon, The Martian
- Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant
- Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs
- Eddie Redmayne, The Danish Girl
This is a sure win for DiCaprio, according to Yahoo Movies. However there were also reports that the actor may not win his first Oscars best actor award this year.
Meanwhile, the whole gang is ready to watch Oscars 2016 on Sunday (Feb 28) but where can you possible tune in?
According to Time magazine, coverage of the red carpet prior to the Academy Awards kicks off at 7 p.m. ET on ABC. The awards ceremony follows at 8:30 p.m. also on ABC. Those with access to broadcast TV and a local ABC station can also watch the awards night.
You also have an option to go streaming. However, streaming of the Academy Awards this year is limited to pay TV customers who live only in some parts of the United States.
Viewers can also catch the big show live stream via the WATCH ABC app, The Daily Observer noted. But according to Time, it also requires proof of a TV provider account and it is available for use only in Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham, and San Francisco.
