Oscar Picks 2014

It’s the day of the Oscars today.

I can remember when I was a kid being excited about the show. You got to see your favorite actors and root for movies you liked. Now that I’m older, I find that it’s just a little amusing diversion. I don’t even watch the show anymore because it’s just so saccharine.

Anyway, I’m going to try to do better than last year. So here we go!

Best Picture
Holy Shit! There’s 9 nominees! The commercials have really been pushing Gravity. I hear lots of good things about American Hustle. 12 Years A Slave won the Golden Globe. I think, because of that, I’m also going to pick 12 Years A Slave.

Best Actor
Hmmm… I think it will be down to Matthew McConaughey or Chiwetel Ejiofor. But I’m going to pick Matthew McConaughey.

Best Actress
Man! I’ve got no idea here. I’m going to chicken out and go with the Golden Globe winner Cate Blanchette.

Best Director
Hmmmm…. Another sticky one. I’m going to guess Alfonso Cuaron just because of the technical challenges of shooting Gravity.

Best Animated Film
This category is very personal to me. I have a lot of bias as well. I’ll just cut through the crap and say that if The Wind Rises doesn’t win, then the entire academy can go fuck themselves!

Well, that’s all I’m daring to pick this year. Hopefully I won’t suck as bad as last year.
