Watch: 2015 Best Picture Nominees Video - Have You Seen All of Them?
"This is how it happens, isn't it, Pete?" Just a few weeks ago, The Academy revealed the full list of nominees for the 2016 Academy Awards. This year there were eight films nominated for Best Picture, including two science fiction features, a Steven Spielberg movie, an expose on the 2008 financial collapse, and a couple of very powerful dramas. This video, made by Jacob T. Swinney, is just a recap of this year's nominations with clips edited to some good music. It even includes a David Bowie track, the same one from The Martian. But more than anything it's a wonderful look back at all of 2015's best film nominees. Have you seen all of them?
Found on Vimeo. This was edited by Jacob T. Swinney - of the magic hour retrospective, the first & final Frames comparison, and that compilation of cinematic lens flares. The nominations for Best Picture at the 88th Academy Awards are: The Big Short, directed by Adam McKay; Bridge of Spies, directed by Steven Spielberg; Brooklyn, directed by John Crowley; Mad Max: Fury Road, directed by George Miller; The Martian, directed by Ridley Scott; The Revenant, directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu; and Spotlight, directed by Tom McCarthy. Most of these also ended up on my own Top 12 of 2015. Which one is your pick?
