10 Films That Could Be Nominated At Next Year’s Oscars

Though it’s only been a week since Spotlight walked away as our Best Picture winner, several films have already been making a head start on the next Oscar race.

And what’s great about this news, is that we’re already seeing a bunch of films that could potentially leave us with a more diverse slate of nominees than the last two years have. Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o, David Oyelowo, Nate Parker, Ang Lee, Amma Asante and several others all have high-profile projects coming out later this year.

National Society of Film Critics Announce Winners

The National Society of Film Critics are the last of the big precursor awards before we get into the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

At this point, it’s really tough to pin down any of the frontrunners in the categories. It’s been a really tough year; All of the awards have been pretty spread out between CarolMad Max: Fury Road and Spotlight. A lot of the higher profile contenders (JoyThe RevenantThe Danish Girl) not dominating in the way we previously expected. They could still resonate with the Academy, however, because as well all know, the critics do not vote on the Oscars.

In any event, the NSFC adds a nice little boost to some contenders that really needed it, especially Michael B. Jordan. Creed is a bit of question mark in the Oscar race. It has the critical love and the box office, but the only member of the film that’s received any attention at all is Sylvester Stallone. Again, that’s not to say the Academy won’t embrace the film, but it’s nice to see Jordan get a shout out here over Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp.

Check out the full list of winners below.
