The top five films in the race for Best Picture, according to the Gold Rush Gang, haven’t changed since last month but the placements for some of the films have. Joy maintains its #1 status, increasing its lead on the unmoved #2 film, Bridge of Spies. But Carol stumbles from #3 to #5 this month, letting both The Revenant and The Danish Girl move up one slot each. Suffragette and Demolition also swap spots with the former seeing a healthy boost in point totals for May. Our Brand is Crisis is bumped out of the top 10, switching spots with Beasts of No Nation. That’s film ultimate release and eligibility is still up in the year due to its purchase by Netflix but we’re keeping it here until we know otherwise. This month sees one debut with Paolo Sorrentino’s English-language debut Youth, which will premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and stars Michael Caine, Rachel Weisz, Harvey Keitel, Paul Dano and Jane Fonda.
