It bums me out that there doesn't seem to be any way to add polls to existing threads in the current version of the board, but oh well.

The nominees for the Oscar are (with the ones I've seen in bold):

  • Mad Max: Fury Road
  • The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out a Window and Disappeared
  • The Revenant

Mad Max: Fury Road is the only Oscar nominee that was also nominated for any of the guild awards.

I haven't seen The 100-Year-Old Man yet, but it's streaming on Netflix (at least in Canada).

The winners will be announced February 20.

And the winners are... Mad Max: Fury Road won two awards (for period and/or character makeup *and* for special makeup effects), while three other films won one award each: Furious 7 (contemporary makeup), Pitch Perfect 2 (contemporary hair styling), Cinderella (period and/or character hairstyling).

Not surprisingly, Mad Max: Fury Road -- the only double winner -- is also the only film nominated by the guild that was also nominated for the Oscar in this category.
