More Post-Oscar Pre-Oscar Speculation / Post-Oscar Statistics

It's a Thursday in March...


The fine folks at Awards Watch have put their collective heads together to make their first set of way-too-early Oscar predictions for 2016 (and the 2017 Oscars).  You can find their lists of a number of categories here:

Among their Best Picture Oscar picks that seem to have some Telluride potential are:

Ang Lee's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (distrib: Sony, opens Nov. 11)
Jeff Nichol's Loving (distrib: Focus Features, opens TBD)
Ben Affleck's Live by Night (distrib: Warners, opens TBD)
Barry Jenkins' Moonlight (distrib: A24, opens TBD)
David Michod's War Machine (distrib: Netflix, opens TBD)
Damien Chazelle's La La Land (distrib: Lionsgate, opens Dec. 2)
Garth Davis' Lion (distrib: The Weinstein Company, opens Nov. 25)
James Marsh's Deep Water (no distrib or release date)

From other categories besides Best Picture:

Craig Johnson's Wilson (Fox Searchlight, TBD)
Mike Mills' 20th Century Women ( No distrib, TBD)
