Oscar Predictions | The Return of (Grooms)Men on Film

2015 seems like it was so long ago.  If you haven’t read our blog in a while, you may not have noticed that we haven’t had much to say.  We would like to welcome the triumphant (and hopefully not too short-lived) return of (grooms)men on film with Groomsmen Pauly’s Oscar predictions.  Pauly traditionally wins the major acting categories’ Oscar guessing game each year, and this year should be no different:

Best Actress:
“Charlize Theron” as Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road. Theron narrowly beats out Daisy Ridley, another strong female protagonist that starred as Rey in Star Wars: Episode VII and was among the most sought after action figures in 2015.

Best Supporting Actress:
“Tessa Thompson” in Creed for being multi-dimensional, multi-cultural, hottie and badass.

Best Actor:
“Will Smith” in a shocker, wins for Concussion.  Apparently, he did not receive the largest number of actual votes, but award presenter Steve Harvey could not pronounce David Oyelowo’s name.  (Paraphrasing Uzo Aduba, if you can learn Dostoevsky and Tchaikovsky, why can’t you learn Oyelowo?)

Best Supporting Actor:
“O’Shea Jackson” for Straight Outta Compton.  Arguably, Jackson could have been nominated for Best Actor, but was Jason Mitchell startled Oscar voters as Eazy-E, the black guy that was the last person to die in a movie.

Best Director:
“Ryan Coogler” for Creed.  The Academy is making up for its snub of Fruitvale Station that somehow was not nominated for best director in Coogler’s debut.

Best Picture:
“Straight Outta Compton” wins, despite flaws, for its portrayal of social and political upheaval in the 1990s.

Let’s enjoy another celebration of the moving picture in this year’s most diverse Oscars yet!  The food will be provided by the Garces Group, the music will be conducted by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and the water was shipped in from a small town just outside of Flint, Michigan.
