"I would love to see Amy win for best documentary. It was an incredible film that had me in tears by the end. R.I.P. Amy -- may your unique voice live on forever."
"I like The Revenant, but we're upset at the Oscars right now for their poor decisions. Still, art is something you should always celebrate. There are lots of people who put out amazing movies that weren't part of the B.S."
"I didn't expect to like it, but The Martian is the best movie I've seen in a while."
"It's a f--ing crime that Straight Outta Compton wasn't nominated for best picture."
--Sam Harris, X Ambassadors
"The Revenant is the film that will sweep this year. Frankly, if Leo doesn't bring one home, I'm going to go to the forest, get naked and crawl inside a dead horse."
--Nick Petricca, Walk the Moon
