Oscars 2014: My Predictions

Here are my Oscar predictions for Sunday night! But please note: these are based solely on the movies I have actually SEEN. So there’s that.

Best Picture:  GRAVITY

Gravity mesmerized me from start to finish. The advanced film making, the attention to deal, and those heart pounding special effects made this, for me, THE film of the year. It doesn’t hurt that Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are the gorgeous leads.

Best Actress: CATE BLANCHETT

Cate OWNS Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine and the emotional roller coaster she goes on makes this film so incredibly entertaining and heart breaking. I can’t imagine anyone else winning.

Best Actor: MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY

Alright. Alright. Alright! One of my favorite actors is going to win an Oscar! His physical transformation alone is amazing. But Matthew has finally proved to everyone that he can do the dramatic, gritty roles he was born to play. He IS Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club.  I loved him so much in this movie. I don’t think he can lose.

Best Supporting Actress: JENNIFER LAWRENCE

I loved American Hustle, but I loved it mostly because of Jennifer Lawrence’s sparkling performance as the flawed wife of a con man. Everytime she is on screen, Jennifer shines. Is there anything she can’t do?

Best Supporting Actor: JARED LETO

When I saw Dallas Buyers Club in the movie theatre, a man in front of me leaned over to his wife and asked, “Who’s that actress playing Rayon?” Well, it wasn’t an actress at all, it was Jared Leto in a completely immersed peformance as Matthew McConaughey’s transgender partner-in-crime. Jared is revolutionary. You must see this film.
