For categories of personal interest……
· Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) – Alejandro González Iñárritu, John Lesher and James W. Skotchdopole
· The Imitation Game – Nora Grossman, Ido Ostrowsky and Teddy Schwarzman
Who Will Win: It’s a tough race as always, but I really think that because of their other wins it’s a tie between Boyhood and The Grand Budapest. Though American Sniper being the dark horse wouldn’t surprise me.
Who Should Win: Out of these films I enjoyed Birman the most so I would have to go with that though I enjoyed the rest that any would be fine.
Who Will Win: It’s honestly likely Anderson or Linklater because of their film’s chances
Who Should Win: Inarritu of course as his job was the most unique out of these
Who Will Win: Eddie Redmayne has this on a lock, though Cooper could be a upset and I think Keaton’s a near contender
Who Should Win: Michael Keaton, he was amazing in Birdman!!!
Who Will Win: Julianne Moore if other shows are a indication
Who Should Win: Rosamund Pike since she was a brilliant surprise
Best Supporting Actor
Who Will Win: JK Simmons, I got a good feel about it
Who Should Win: JK Simmons, the man didn’t rush or drag he was on tempo
Best Supporting Actress
Who Will Win: Patricia Arquette, she’s on a roll. Could see Emma Stone or Meryl Streep as well.
Who Should Win: You know what, Meryl Streep. That my vote, I loved into the woods
Best Animated Film
Who Will Win: I would say it’s a tie up between the big two of Big Hero 6 and How to Train Your Dragon 2
Who Should Win: Because it’s the wild card, I’m going to have to lean towards the Ghibli film of Kaguya. Big Hero 6 I loved as well…
Best Original Score
Who Will Win: Probably something like the Grand Budapest Hotel or The Theory of Everything when considering past trends.
Who Should Win: Interstellar, because it was one of the best aspects of that film
Best Visual Effects
Who Will Win: This is a very hard one since I love all these films… my kind of movies! I would have to say a academy favorite is either Dawn of the Planet of the Apes for its apes or Interstellar for its space
Who Should Win: It’s a tie to me between Interstellar and Guardians of the Galaxy. They each brought their own different but equally great vision of space…
So that’s all folks for now. Some tough races in categories I haven’t listed, we’ll see what happens. It’s a solid lineup overall….
