Ahead of Sunday's 88th Academy Awards, film writers Lindsey Bahr and Jake Coyle share their predictions for a ceremony that has everyone guessing.BAHR Will Win: The bravado of "The Revenant" will match its awards tally.Should Win: "Mad Max: Fury Road" is a visionary filmmaking coup of a different kind, and – unlike "The Revenant" – Miller's raging road opera is the definite classic of the bunch. Should Win: DiCaprio's inevitable win is both boring and merited.Will Win: Brie Larson. She gives about 10 incredible performances in a single film and has won everything so far. Should Win: Obvious grit trumps nuance at the Oscars, but Charlotte Rampling tore out many a heartstring as a jealous woman in "45 Years". Should Have Been a Contender: Nicholas Hoult.Will Win: There's potential intrigue here, but the swell around Stallone is a fitting honor for the actor who's spent three myth-making decades as Rocky Balboa.Will Win: Alicia Vikander, for giving a soul to "The Danish Girl".Will Win: Alicia Vikander will win for "The Danish Girl," as voters honor not only her intelligent performance in that film, but a year full of standout work.
