Which film will successfully hunt them down is yet to be seen, but we could engage in the fun game of seeing what strategies each film is adopting. Some films do it by being great cinema, and some others bait. Often the baiting is so obvious, we may as well call it the baiting season. And this year's most accomplished baiting is perhaps achieved in The Revenant.

The Revenant is simultaneously baiting for two big Oscars. The Best Film, of course, but also The Best Actor. At this p....
