88th Academy Award Winners

Listen, I can’t be mad because the same thing happened a few years ago when “12 Years A Slave” won having only won Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress, while “Gravity” had taken home 7 Oscars including Best Directing. So “The Revenant” wins Best Directing, Best Cinematography, and Best Leading Actor, yet does not pull off Best Picture. I do know which film I’ll … Read More 88th Academy Award Winners

Oscars Watch: 88th Academy Award Predictions

Here are something to consider this year while making your guesses. One of the things that makes the Oscars so much fun to watch are the surprises. But over the years, I feel like more and more we are anticipating those surprises into our guesses. For that, the broadcast and awards themselves usually reel us back into reality. For some of the wins to … Read More Oscars Watch: 88th Academy Award Predictions

2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Picture

FILM SYNOPSIS: Years after an apocalypse has devastated the world, Australia has become a wasteland ruled by outlaws hoarding fuel, water and other resources.

2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Cinematography

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD John Seale Cinematography is key in creating the aesthetic of “Mad Max: Fury Road.” Imagine having the visionary George Miller come to you with this idea of a film being completely comprised of a chase scene in the desert, and fathoming how you will achieve such an effect. Imagine having you camera attached to vehicles, having explosions happening everywhere, and … Read More 2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Cinematography

2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Directing

GEORGE MILLER “Mad Max: Fury Road” An interesting course of events happened this year before and after the Oscar nominations. Beforehand, most pundits would tell you that this year’s Best Directing category would be a showdown between Ridley Scott (“The Martian”), who many felt was overdue for some recognition, and George Miller (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), who returned to his own franchise after three … Read More 2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Directing

2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Costume Design

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Jenny Beaven Best Costume gets tricky. On one hand, you’ve got a film like “Cinderella” which is almost made by the costumes. Without those impressive costumes, that film has zero nominations and is just another Disney live action film. But the costumes are utterly breathtaking and unforgettable. They make the movie. Then you have “Mad Max: Fury Road,” where although … Read More 2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Costume Design

2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Film Editing

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Margaret Sixel No matter what the film, pacing is everything. And most of that happens on the editing room floor. But consider the film that is touted as one giant chase scene in “Mad Max: Fury Road.” Obviously a chase scene brings about the idea of tension and suspense, but leaving the throttle on full throughout the entire film would … Read More 2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Film Editing

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Lesley Vanderwalt, Elka Wardega and Damian Martin Look at any given character in “Mad Max: Fury Road” and you will see some Makeup or Hairsyling aspect given to the character, whether its bald caps or actually shaving their heads, whether its the boils on the characters begging for water, or the intense detail to the grotesque Immortan Joe, or war … Read More 2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Makeup & Hairstyling

2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Production Design

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Colin Gibson (Production Design); Lisa Thompson (Set Decoration) There’s building locations and designing sets and then there’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” where you’re custom building 130 vehicles to take part in one of the most epic chase scenes of all time. And these aren’t just vehicles that were driven onto set.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Andrew Jackson, Tom Wood, Dan Oliver and Andy Williams Watch the VFX breakdowns above and you’ll see that most of the film was created through visual effects, adding landscapes and the giant storm that they enter, the tint to the entire film to make it feel post apocalyptic, and enhancements to the characters, specifically Furiosa (Charlize Theron) and her missing … Read More 2016 Oscars Challenge: [36] “Mad Max: Fury Road” – Best Visual Effects

Oscars: Sound Editing Versus Sound Mixing

Instead of going into detail on each film and their chances (or lack thereof) as far as the sound goes, I thought it would be more beneficial to broach the topic of what the differences are between the Best Sound Editing category and Best Sound Mixing category, since I have to refresh my own memory most years when the Oscars roll around.

With a shortlisting in the Best Makeup & Hairstyling category, we have a fairly clear picture of what’s being considered. In my picks, I’m leaning towards the films that will likely receive other awards love. Since there’s only three nominations in this category, four of them won’t make the cut. “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “The Revenant” feel like safe bets to me, while … Read More Oscars Shortlist: 7 Makeup & Hairstyling Shortlisted for 88th Academy Awards
