Oscar season is upon us. The movie theaters are chock-full of grade-A movies and actors are smack-dap in the middle of their press tour. They, and the whole world, are gearing up to see who will take home the most prestigious movie awards of the year.

This year, like every other, has presented some obvious and some surprise nominations. We’ve seen a lot of nominations for “The Revenant,” which is no surprise, and a lot of nominations for “Brooklyn,” which we didn’t really see coming.

While it’s nearly impossible to pin-point who and what is going to win an Oscar this year, we know one thing is for sure, there is some mighty stiff competition this year.
