AwardOptions on the Oscars



The 88th Academy Awards ceremony was an awkward, yet illuminating affair as host Chris Rock [CROCK] did not shy away from the lack of diversity controversy.  He called Hollywood racist, and poked fun at #OscarsSoWhite with comedic bits throughout the night.  Still, the show must go on as the stars were trotted out and the golden statues handed out, producing a few surprises along the way.  HSX offered AwardOptions of nominees in the top 8 categories and traders correctly predicted 6 of the winners.

Best Picture
In a three-way race, Spotlight [A6PSPO] pulled off the victory over The Revenant, which was the favored by many including HSX, and late comer The Big Short.  The win is a first for Open Road, who also took the top prize at the Independent Spirit Award on Saturday.

Best Director
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu [A6DAGI] won for the second year in the row for The Revenant, as predicted by HSX.

Best Actor
Leonardo DiCaprio finally has an Oscar for his performance in The Revenant [A6ALDI] in a category he dominated on HSX. 

Best Actress
HSX darling Brie Larson took home the Oscar for Room [A6CBLA].  

Best Supporting Actor
Mark Rylance pulled off the upset for Bridge of Spies [A6RMRY].  HSX traders went with the sentimental favorite Slyvester Stallone for Creed.

Best Supporting Actress
Alicia Vikander was called out for The Danish Girl [A6SAVI], who overtook Kate Winslet - Steve Jobs to lead the category on HSX.

Adapted Screenplay
HSX correctly named The Big Short [A6EBIG], which secured its only Oscar of the night.

Original Screenplay
HSX also nailed Spotlight [A6OSPO] as the first winner of evening, and as it turned out, the last winner of this year's Academy Awards.
