And on with the predictions:
I removed The Danish Girl and Far From the Madding Crowd in favor of Cinderella (which continues to gain momentum and buzz in these categories considering everyone thought it was gorgeous) and Pan, which could be a real contender if the sets are spectacular (and we all know they have potential to be).
So...I took out three of my previous nominees (Far From the Madding Crowd, The Hateful Eight and Spectre) and replaced them with In the Heart of the Sea, Sicario and Youth. I could be really off with my perception of The Hateful Eight, but everything I've heard from those who have read the script and have talked to insiders is that the film is NOT Oscary at all, and while I thought it would make a play here, there are just so many films with the potential to be beautiful.
Brooklyn is the only film I took out, in favor of Pan.
Took out Southpaw (which looks great but not Oscary) and put in Pan.
