GOLD DERBY SHOWS THE REVENANT'S RISE
In the wake of The Revenant's wins at last weekend's BAFTA awards, the expert Oscar predictors that are surveyed by Gold Derby have shifted their view and have now made Alejandro Inarritu's The Revenant as a substantial favorite.
16 over the 25 experts surveyed by the Gold derby crew are currently picking The Revenant putting it over the 50% mark and giving it (according to Gold Derby) odds of 5/6 to win. Spotlight sits at second with 6 experts still picking it. Its odds are listed at 10/3. The only other film that earned any #1 votes is The Big Short.
