Only three of the eight nominees in this category have a real shot at winning: The Big Short, The Revenant, and Spotlight. Let’s take a look at the case for each.
The Big Short: The strongest possible argument that you can make in favor of The Big Short is that it won the Producers Guild of America award, one of the three most telling pre-Oscar industry prizes. (The other two went to the other two nominees we’re discussing right now.) The PGA has predicted the Oscar Best Picture winner every year since 2010.
What’s significant about 2010? That was the year when both the PGA and the Academy switched to a preferential ballot (read more about what that means right here). In contrast, many other awards use a simple plurality vote. And while The Big Short may not be a lot of voters’ top choice, it’s probably a lot of people’s second or third choice. On a preferential ballot, that’s a good position to be in.
Also working in The Big Short‘s favor are the fact that it tells a historically significant story (the movie is about the 2008 financial collapse) and the fact that it’s basically Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign in movie form.
The Revenant: The Revenant also won an industry prize that tends to predict the Oscars: the Directors Guild of America award, for its director, Alejandro G. Iñárritu. That’s in addition to winning the Golden Globe for Best Drama (not so telling) and the British Academy’s Best Picture prize (often telling).
The movie has also been a huge, huge hit at the box office — especially for what is essentially an oft-silent art film — and it has the most storied production of any of the Best Picture nominees; tales of how hard it was to make have reverberated throughout Hollywood all winter long. It has 12 total nominations, the most of any film, and its studio, Fox, has won the last two Best Picture prizes.
Working against The Revenant is the fact that just last year, Iñárritu won both the Best Picture trophy and the Best Director trophy for Birdman. A few people have won Best Director two years in a row, but no one’s ever won both two years in a row. Plus, the film is hugely divisive. It’s a lot of people’s number one choice — but how many second- and third-place votes will it get?
Spotlight: Spotlight won the “best ensemble” prize from the Screen Actors Guild. Since actors make up the largest subset of the Academy, the film’s SAG win indicates that it could be very popular with that very influential voting bloc. And Spotlight‘s attempt to create a narrative around itself — suggesting that a vote for the movie is a vote against systemic corruption in all its forms — has been fitfully successful but much stronger than the campaigns of either of its two competitors.
Spotlight has the lowest box-office total of the three, however, and its SAG prize is its only major win. Meanwhile, its distributor, Open Road Films, is playing this game for the first time, unlike Fox and Paramount (the distributors of The Revenant and The Big Short, respectively).
All things considered, I think that preferential ballot will be the dealbreaker.
Win: The Big Short
Place: The Revenant
Should win: If you handed me a Best Picture ballot, I would vote for the wild, visionaryMad Max: Fury Road in a heartbeat.
