The Golden Globes, the Academy Awards, SAG, WGA, Indie Spirit, the Razzie's… so many award shows, so little time. Often, an actor or actress is nominated for multiple awards for the same role. For example, last year Michael Keaton was everywhere - was one of the true award season darlings in Hollywood. His return to the big screen in Birdman totally sparked Keaton-mania. Although he didn’t win the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2015 (that honor went to Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything), we can expect to see Mr. Keaton (Spotlight) among other famous celebs walking a red carpet or two again this year. Here are a few predictions for award season favorites in 2016.

The nominations have not officially been announced for the Oscars and several other awards yet.  However, we can make some early predictions with confidence as to which names will appear on the final ballots. One of the biggest questions that will be asked this winter is whether or not Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) will finally receive an Academy Award. The actor has been nominated five times and is currently among the 2016 Oscar favorites.

Both Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet made movies in 2015, and as they are two of the most talented actresses working on the silver screen today, they are sure to be award show darlings this winter as well. However, there will definitely be some fresh faces appearing on the covers of entertainment magazines and making the late night talk show circuit. Brie Larson, Saoirse Ronan, and Alicia Vikander are all drumming up early award season buzz.

Be sure to vote up the men and women you think will rule the red carpet this award’s season and become the toast of Hollywood.
