Sunday February 28nd, 2016, the Academy Awards!  I’ve very excited about this year’s Oscars; there are a ton of excellent films represented as well as the annual snubs left out.  It should be a great show, with Chris Rock hosting, and I’ll be live-tweeting the event on Twitter (@OlieCoen).  You can check out my Oscars page for a complete listing of the nominees in the six major categories, but here are both my predictions and my picks for the best films of 2015:
