Has AMPAS learned nothing in 39 years? With the sons of All the President's Men and Network (Spotlight and The Big Short) vying for the win, are they really going to give it to another Rocky? As Yogi Berra would say, it'll be deja vu all over again!
From what I've read "The Revenant" can hardly be characterized a feel-good movie like "Rocky".
It's not a feel-good movie, but it fits the same basic scenario. It's another underdog comes through movie.
Well, under such a loose definition we can fit almost everything, from "Gone With the Wind" to "Argo".
