One Minute Till The Oscars Start: My Predictions
Movies excite us, anger us, and challenge us. The artistic form of movies is something I have always loved. The Oscars are often called superficial. If you can look past the Glitz and Glamour you will see that the event is a celebration of film. It’s about awarding excellence. I don’t agree with many of The Academy’s decisions. Though as an event The Oscars are extremely important for those who love and are directly and indirectly involved in it. It’s not just about awarding actors and directors. It’s the sound editors, cameraman, set designers, costumer designers, writers, editors, and visual effects people who are the backbone of creating a good film.
I’m extremely excited for this years Oscars! My predictions are as follows.
Best Picture: Her
Best Actress (Lead): Sandra Bullock (Gravity)
Best Actor (Lead): Leondaro DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street)
Best Actor (Supporting): Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street)
Best Actress (Supporting): Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle)
Animated Feature Film: The Wind Rises
Music (Original Score): Her
Biggest Snub: Joaquin Phoenix (Her)
Writing (Adapted Screenplay): Before Midnight
Writing (Original Screenplay): Blue Jasmine
I don’t have the time to finish this list as the Oscars are about to start. I felt as though there was categories I couldn’t speak to. I should have put more time and effort into this list. There’s always next years Oscars!
