OSCARS: Previewing the PGA and BAFTA Nods

On Tuesday, two big groups will announce their nominations. The Producers Guild of America and the coveted BAFTA Awards will weigh in on 2016 and offer plenty to say about what films are in the thick of the Oscar race.

There are lots of moving pieces including the potential for surprises like Hugh Grant moving to Lead, perhaps Viola Davis, even. Isabelle Huppert’s work in “Elle” isn’t eligible, so I expect her to pop up for “Things to Come.”

Down below, you can see the official predictions for each.

Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments below!

  • Alec Glass

    interesting pick for Hugh Grant moving to lead for BAFTA. Personally I’d be all for it, I think calling his performance supporting is totally BS, do you think if it happens he gets some votes thrown his way for oscar in lead? Can’t see him making the lead lineup there but maybe enough to bump him off the supporting list in favor of one of the guys form nocturnal animals? Also do you think Dev Patel maybe has an outside shot at making that transition for them as well? Haven’t seen Lion myself so couldn’t say whether his performance is actually believably supporting or not.
