It’s The Oscars Again



Come March 2nd, the prestigious Oscars take place and will be hosted by comic TV host, Ellen DeGeneres (which I look forward to). The question on the lips of most Oscar fans is “Would this year be for Leonardo DiCaprio?” He is nominated for Best Lead Actor this year for ‘Wolf of Wall Street’. Also on the nomination list is Chiwetel Ejiofor and Lupita Nyong’o who were nominated for ’12 years a slave’. Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Christian Bale all got nominations for ‘American Hustle’ and so, if you haven’t seen most of these movies, there’s enough time to do so before Oscar night at least, try a little prediction. Now here are the categories and a little bit of prediction for the awards  
  • Best Picture – American Hustle, Nebraska, Captain Phillips, Philomena, Dallas Buyers Club, 12 years a Slave, Gravity, The Wolf of Wall Street, Her
(Tough category but I’ll go for either ‘Gravity’ or ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’)
  • Actor in a Lead Role – Christian Bale for American Hustle, Chiwetel Ejiofor for 12 years a Slave, Bruce Dern for Nebraska, Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club and Leonardo DiCaprio for The Wolf of Wall Street
(Can we give this to Leonardo; can this be his lucky year? Chiwetel and Bale for close contenders too)
  • Actress in a Lead Role – Amy Adams for American Hustle, Judi Dench for Philomena, Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine, Meryl Streep for August : Osage Country, Sandra Bullock for Gravity
(Go Blanchett! Go Blanchett!)
  • Actor in a Supporting Role – Barkhad Abdi for Captain Phillips, Jonah Hill for The Wolf of Wall Street, Bradley Cooper for American Hustle, Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club, Michael Fassbender for 12 Years a Slave
(Bradley Cooper, in my opinion)
  • Actress in a Supporting Role – Sally Hawkins for Blue Jasmine, Julia Roberts for August : Osage Country, Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle, June Squibb for Nebraska, Lupita Nyong’o for 12 years a Slave
(I want Lupita Nyong’o to win this so bad but I think Jennifer Lawrence and June Squibb won’t give it to her easily)
  • Animated Feature Film – The Croods, Frozen, Despicable Me 2, The Wind Rises, Ernest and Celestine
(Despicable Me 2, thank you!)
  • Cinematography – The Grandmaster, Gravity, Inside Llewyn Davis, Nebraska, Prisoners
  • Costume Design – American Hustle, The Grandmaster, The Great Gatsby, The Invisible Woman, 12 years a Slave
(Loved the costumes from The Great Gatsby so I’ll go for that)
  • Directing – American Hustle, Gravity, Nebraska, 12 years a Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street
(Maybe Gravity or 12 years a Slave)
  • Documentary Feature – The Act of Killing, Cutie and the Boxer, Dirty Wars, The Square, 20 feet from Stardom
  • Documentary (Short Subject) – Cave Digger, Facing Fear, Karma has no Walls, The Lady in Number 6 : Music saved my life, Prison Terminal : The last days of Private Jack Hall
  • Film Editing – American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Gravity, 12 years a Slave
  • Make up/Hairstyling – Dallas Buyers Club, Jackass Presents : Bad Grandpa, The Lone Ranger

(Happy for the win)
