Rooting for Miller and Morricone. Can’t judge the rest as I have yet to see the most of it.

I’m hoping to see The Revenant sweep all before it, and of course for Ennio to get him some of that hot Oscar action. I’m pleasantly surprised to see Jennifer Jason Leigh pick up a nom for The Hateful Eight and I’d love to see her win, although it looks tough for her in that category.

No Ridiculous Six? Damn :wink:

This is the most interesting category I think, and the closest call. I think Lachman is out of place here, but the other four movies were visually stunning. And that is an understatement (well I have not seen Hateful yet)

That’s a glaring absenteeism from the list, right there. It’s been panned pretty-much across the board. Not that I’ll ever know why; I’ve never seen an Adam Sandler pic* besides maybe an hour of Little Nicky (Brill, 2000) and that was more than enough for me. Still, I guess with Pixels and The Cobbler well represented, The Razzies can’t be ALL Adam ALL the time, can they? If The Ridiculous Six went in too, no one else would get a look in. :smile:

*To be honest I’ve got - and rather like - Punch-Drunk Love (Anderson, 2002) but I consider that a Paul Thomas Anderson film, not an Adam Sandler movie. Hmm, never seen an Adam Sandler pic - There’s a Masochistic Movie Marathon just waiting to happen…

Not really - I thought his grainy, Supper 16mm cinematography for [I]Carol[/I] was excellent and really managed to capture the ambiance of New York in the 1950s. On the other hand, despite its flaws, I have a hard time believing [I]Jupiter Ascending[/I] is one of the five worst films of the year.

I’ve not seen any of the Best Pictures or Worst Pictures nominations… I don’t get out much anymore.

If we count only expensive Hollywood movies I don’t think it’s far off. I’ve seen 3 of the 5 movies in the ‘Worst movie’ category and of those three Jupiter Ascending was definitely the worst. Boring, boring, boring idiotic movie :slight_smile:
