    Default The 2014 Oscars

    I know I can't be the only one around here that's excited! It's been a great year for film and surprisingly competitive awards season. Hopefully the Oscar ceremony itself will live up to expectations.

    Discuss your predictions, your favourites, the fashion, the host, the cringe-worthy red carpet questions, how freakin' irritating Giuliana Rancic is, reactions, and other general thoughts.

    Here's my predictions (I'm thinking there's going to be some upsets):

    Best Picture: 12 Years a Slave (alt. Gravity)
    Best Director: Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity (alt. Steve McQueen)
    Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio, The Wolf of Wall Street (alt. Matthew McConaughey)
    Best Actress: Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine (alt. Amy Adams)
    Best Supporting Actor: Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club (alt. Barkhad Abdi)
    Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle (alt. Lupita Nyong'o)
    Best Original Screenplay: American Hustle (alt. Her)
    Best Adapted Screenplay: 12 Years a Slave (alt. Philomena)
    Best Animated Feature: Frozen (alt. The Wind Rises)
    Best Foreign Film: The Great Beauty (alt. The Hunt)
    Best Documentary: 20 Feet From Stardom (alt. The Act of Killing)
    Best Production Design: The Great Gatsby (alt. 12 Years a Slave)
    Best Cinematography: Gravity (alt. Prisoners)
    Best Editing: Captain Phillips (alt. Gravity)
    Best Costume Design: The Great Gatsby (alt American Hustle)
    Best Makeup and Hair: Dallas Buyers Club (alt. Bad Grandpa)
    Best Score: Gravity (alt. Her)
    Best Song: Let it Go, Frozen (alt. Ordinay Love, Mandela)
    Best Sound Editing: Gravity (alt. All is Lost)
    Best Sound Mixing: Gravity (alt. Captain Phillips)
    Best Visual Effects: Gravity (alt. The Hobbit)
    Best Animated Short: Get a Horse (alt. Feral)
    Best Doc. Short: The Lady in Number 6 (alt. Facing Fear)
    Best Live action short: The Voorman Problem (alt. Helium)

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    I agree with the vast majority of your picks. My exceptions would be:

    Best Actor: McConaughey is a mortal lock.
    Best Supporting Actress: Lupita Nyong'o is a mortal lock.
    Best Production Design: Gravity
    Best Editing: I have Gravity, but Captain Phillips is probably just as likely.
    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    Gravity will win Best VFX, even though The Lone Ranger had the best of the lot and therefore deserves it.

    What's hilarious is that the trans community sees Leto's portrayal as shit and misrepresentational. But here, he's gonna get a major award for it because men portraying females in movies are seen as amazing somehow. So I need to see this movie just so I can decide for myself whether it's just the activists getting rowled up or whether it's really just a mess of a role.

    I thought Hillary Swank in "Boys Don't Cry" years back was excellent.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    My main hope is for 12 Years a Slave to beat Gravity (because Her doesn't have a chance.)

    In an ideal situation, I'd also get Michael Fassbender for Supporting, Before Midnight for Adapted Screenplay, and Her for Original Screenplay.

    In a dream scenario, Blue is the Warmest Color would be nominated for Foreign and Best Picture.

    Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos would both be nominated for acting.

    Joaquin Phoenix would be nominated for and win Best Actor.

    Stories We Tell would be nominated in Doc and Picture.

    They would revamp the music categories and include an award for Best Use of Music in a Film.

    And I would have seen Inside Llewyn Davis...

    I've actually ranked all the movies I saw here:

    I would also like to have a nice chat with the producers and figure out how to shorten the ceremony and stop bullying winners off the stage after five seconds. Hint: no shitty musical acts.

    I hope you guys are right but a lot of "experts" are making me nervous. It is nice that for the first time in ages we don't know 100% what's going to win Picture going in.
