Chamberlain Staff Picks

Roll out the Red Carpet

January 26, 2016

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for WeHo – not Christmas, but Oscar season! The nominees for the 2016 Academy Awards are here and everyone is buzzing with predictions. We’re almost as excited for the movies as we are for all the red carpet glam and glitz! With so many great actors, actresses and films this year, it can be tough trying to guess who will come out on top, but here’s our best bets for the big five:

Best Picture: Spotlight

While The Revenant was a brutally gorgeous film from last year’s winner of Best Director, Alejandro González Iñárritu, our money is on Spotlight, the deeply affecting true story of how The Boston Globe worked to uncover a horrifying conspiracy of priests being protected after molesting children. With an ensemble cast that turns in a strong performance, it’s a can’t-miss movie.

Best Lead Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant

It’s a long time coming, and after being overlooked for amazing work in films like Gangs of New York, Catch Me If You Can, Revolutionary Road and more, it looks like this might finally be his year, and he’s earned it, with reports of him really living like a wild man out on the Yukon during The Revenant’s filming.

Best Lead Actress: Brie Larson, Room

Although Saoirse Ronan’s dazzling turn in Brooklyn makes it a close race, Brie Larson is the favorite for her powerful performance as a mother trying to make a normal life for her 5-year-old son in the tiny room they live in while also planning an escape from their captor.

Best Supporting Actor: Mark Rylance, Bridge of Spies

This category is currently anyone’s game, so we might be showing our bias a little bit with this one. While Stallone took home the Golden Globe for his return to Rocky in Creed, it’s Mark Rylance’s quiet, inwardly animated role as the captured Communist spy that’s stuck with us the most since watching, so here’s hoping!

Best Supporting Actress: Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl

Yet another tight race, mostly between Alicia Vikander and Rooney Mara for her role in Carol, but Kate Winslet took home the Golden Globe and Jennifer Jason Leigh is also considered a strong contender. Still, we’re going to give to Alicia Vikander for her commanding and emotional performance as Gerda, the wife of one of the first recorded patients to receive sex-reassignment surgery.

Bonus! Best Animated Feature: Inside Out

A criminally overlooked category, some people still see animation as a kid’s game and nothing more, but today’s filmmakers make use of the beautiful fluidity and endless possibilities of animation to tell compelling stories. While Charlie Kaufman’s existential stop-motion film Anomalisa might be this year’s upset, we’re pretty confident Pixar’s complex and funny story of the emotions that make us who we are will be this year’s winner.

And those are Chamberlain West Hollywood’s picks for this year’s Oscar’s, airing on February 28th. If you’re heading out to Hollywood yourself and book a room with us, you know we’ll treat you like an Oscar winner.
