In the split that’s happening a lot, and is now being predicted by many of the pundits, “Spotlight” takes Best Film from the Detroit Film Critics, while George Miller (“Mad Max: Fury Road”) takes Best Director. Michael Caine comes in with his first Best Actor win for “Youth,” while Liev Shreiber gets his first for “Spotlight,” something he’ll be facing Mark Ruffalo and Michael Keaton for come the Academy Awards. More bets are being placed on Keaton and Ruffalo, however, as this is the first I’m hearing Shreiber’s name. It’s still up in the air where Alicia Vikander (and Rooney Mara for that matter) in regards to Leading or Supporting as far as her role in “The Danish Girl” goes. No matter what, I love knowing she’ll likely get a nomination regardless, as I’ve been a supporter since seeing her in “Anna Karenina” a few years back.
