The biggest night in Hollywood is this Sunday, and the race this year is a close one. So many incredible movies have come out this year, and the diversity of the films up for awards make it hard to gauge who will win. However, I have been following the Oscars closely over the past few years and feel as if I can make somewhat accurate predictions for this year’s big awards.

The Revenant will most likely be the biggest winner this Sunday, though a lot of the movies have potential to steal some of The Revenant’s predicted awards.

Best Picture:

Likely winner: The Revenant

Could upset: Spotlight or The Big Short

Best Actor:

Likely winner: Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant

Could upset: Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs (very unlikely)

Best Actress:

Likely winner: Brie Larson, Room

Could upset: Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn or Cate Blanchett, Carol

Best Supporting Actor:

Likely winner: Sylvester Stallone, Creed

Could upset: Mark Ruffalo, Spotlight

Best Supporting Actress:

Likely winner: Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl

Could upset: Rooney Mara, Carol

Best Original Screenplay:

Likely winner: Spotlight

Could upset: Inside Out

Best Adapted Screenplay:

Likely winner: The Big Short

Could upset: The Martian

Best Director:

Likely winner: Alejandro Iñárritu, The Revenant

Could upset: George Miller, Mad Max: Fury Road

**Disclaimer: a man can only see so many movies in one year. Some of these are predicted from what other people have said about the movies and other articles online, including Indiewire and Yahoo.**
