Nominees for Worst Adapted Screenplay:
Goosebumps
Insurgent
Minions
Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2
The Scorch Trials

And the winner is...Insurgent. While Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 may appear as the obvious winner, the film's lack of any humor is mostly the result of astonishingly shoddy slapstick. Meanwhile, Insurgent's excuse of a script, a smorgasbord of YA clichés, plot threads that open up more questions than the movie gives answers to, pseudo-intellectual philosophy, and all around clunky lines, provides a shining example of a failure to adapt another work. Then again, one of the scribes of the movie is Batman and Robin writer Akiva Goldsman.

Runner up: Goosebumps

Next up is Best Adapted Screenplay.

Nominees are:
The Big Short
Brooklyn
The Martian
Room
Steve Jobs

And the winner is... Steve Jobs. The Big Short definitely deserves credit for its helpful explanation of the crisis and consistent humor, but Aaron Sorkin's writing hand is a whole different monster. It, alongside the main performances, is the biggest strength of Steve Jobs, and it propels mere arguments in the movie beyond simple arguments, and thus creating some of the most riveting and even intense scenes of the year.

Runner up: The Big Short
God dammit Kashmir, stop making all the films I picked runner ups ;).
Sorry, Paasche. I suppose it's unwise to bet against Sorkin.

Next up is Best Cinematography.

Nominees are:
Cary Joji Fukunaga - Beasts of No Nation
John Seale - Mad Max: Fury Road
Emmanuel Lubezki - The Revenant
Roger Deakins - Sicario
Alwin H. Küchler - Steve Jobs

And the winner is...Emmanuel Lubezki for The Revenant. The technical opening scene for the movie, the first Arikawa attack, was enough for Lubezki to clinch the win. If that incredible shot(s) isn't/aren't enough, I also bring up: The reveal of the bison, the bear attack, the horseback chase, the final fight...the list goes on.

Runner up: Mad Max: Fury Road

Next up is a coin flip.

Nominees for Worst Cinematography are:
John Toll - Jupiter Ascending
Gyula Pados - The Scorch Trials

And the winner is... John Toll  for Jupiter Ascending. If one is to make an ambitious sci-fi action movie with lengthy action scenes, you should at least shoot them so that viewers know what's going on. Granted, it's not totally the cinematographer's fault for this, as there are a couple of decent shots, but like many aspects of Jupiter Ascending, the cinematography should have been much better than it is considering its budget.

Runner up: The Scorch Trials, obviously

Next up is arguably the toughest decision of the night for me: Best Supporting Actor.

The nominees are:
Idris Elba - Beasts of No Nation
Paul Dano - Love and Mercy
Tom Hardy - The Revenant
Benicio Del Toro - Sicario
Michael Shannon - 99 Homes

And in the end my pick is Tom Hardy for The Revenant. His performance in the movie is equally as demanding and committed as Leo's, as he must play a man driven by survival and one that must incite rancor from the viewer. He accomplishes that in each of his scenes, and his intimidating presence remains even in quiet scenes like his "God in the form of a squirrel" monologue.

Runner up: Not sure. This race is almost too close.

This was the tightest race for me as well. I honestly might as well have just flipped a coin.

Unfortunately, because of my failed attempt to watch Dawn Patrol without the presence of my parents, I will have to announce the rest of the winners at once, and take a hiatus for a while. I resent this as much as you all probably do, but my sentence would be exacerbated if I tried to defend my actions.

Is it bad if there were a couple categories that I might change? Before I had to leave I had a couple knee jerk reaction picks that I might want to change as a result of internal debating.

However, I won't let the technicality deprive either you or Tatum from both picking a movie.

I have not. Is it on Netflix? Also, do you want me to watch the theatrical cut or the director's cut?

Nah, change away. And I don't think either of us will blame you if we end up losing because of it- everyone else only watched one movie after all.

Well, the only categories I considered changing are Actor (which I already changed, as after thinking about it I feel that Leo pulled off a much tougher role than Fassbender), and Best Director (Toss-up between McKay and Miller).

The former puts both you and Tatum at 20 correct. Still deciding on the Director race.

I decided to just keep the director race as it is. I already know you're going to pick The Dark Knight, Paasche, so you don't have to bring it up unless you would prefer I see a different Nolan movie.

Haha, I'm definitely willing to choose something else if you would prefer it- Gone Baby Gone comes to mind, or Before the Devil Knows You're Dead.

The Dark Knight is probably the safest bet and the easiest to find, as a friend of mine has it on DVD. Gone Baby Gone appears to be fine if the parent advisory guide on IMDb is to be trusted, so if not TDK, I'll go with that. It's your call.
