    FINAL PREDICTIONS IN ALL CATEGORIES, ACADEMY AWARDS
    January 14th, 2015
    ____________________________________________________________________

    BEST PICTURE
    American Sniper
    Birdman
    Boyhood
    Gone Girl
    The Grand Budapest Hotel
    The Imitation Game
    Into the Woods
    Selma
    The Theory of Everything
    Whiplash

    With no one knowing whether we will get 5 – 10 nominees, I took the safe route and just stuck with ten. Though I suspect we may end up with only seven or eight. Still, even with my ten predictions- I’m taking a risk with Into the Woods and even Gone Girl, though both films would be a welcome addition since they actually made over $100 million domestically on top of their critical acclaim. I wish I could predict Into the Woods with more confidence, which turned out a lot better then I expected- but alas, I fear it still could miss- mainly because it might be considered ‘too fluffy’ for older voters, and ‘too Disney’ for everyone else. I felt neither, enjoying it far more then the overbloated Les Mis, a 2012 musical that did manage to make the cut. Another box-office and critical smash, Interstellar, seems too faded for any consideration, but I would welcome it.
    Selma is fighting tooth and nail to manage slots, since the guilds have so far avoided it- but this could be because Paramount’s strategy to “just send Oscar voters screeners” is secretly paying off. Time shall tell. 
    Does it really matter anyways? Boyhood seems destined to win Best Picture, and I think it would be a deserving winner- albeit not nearly as exciting as last year’s 12 Years a Slave or even Ben Affleck’s Argo, both of which prove to be far more entertaining and worth talking about afterwards. 2014 is much like 2011, I sense; weak year with not much to go GaGa for, but still managing a few charming selections here and there. I hated Birdman but can admire it’s artistry. I liked Grand Budapest, but more for it’s visionary splendor then actual storyline. I found vast similiarities between The Theory of Everything and The Imitation Game, and enjoyed both equally. American Sniper was marvelous in the battle scenes and Cooper’s performance, but suffered from a rushed ending and somewhat cliche family life scenes. My favorite film, Whiplash, luckily seems positioned to be a best picture nominee and take home Best Supporting Actor- and that is a wonderful thing. What a rush that movie was!

    Over all, I think 2014 was a year with some inspired flicks, and many duds. And so, these are my predictions.  

    BEST DIRECTOR
    American Sniper, Clint Eastwood
    Birdman
    , Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
    Boyhood, Richard Linklater
    The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson
    Whiplash, Damien Chazelle

    A tough rack to predict; I think Clint Eastwood could still surprise and take Fincher’s spot, and the DGA nominations confirmed that. Whiplash is my odd ball pick, but  I truly think the directing branch will appreciate the technical skill and devotion it took to helm the former movie’s layout, speed and production as a whole.

    BEST ACTOR
    Bradley Cooper, American Sniper
    Benedict Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game
    Jake Gyllenhaal, Nightcrawler
    Michael Keaton, Birdman
    Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything

    Get ready for tears Thursday morning, because lot’s of surprises are in stow for Best Actor. David Oyelowo (Selma), Steve Carrell (Foxcatcher), Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner) and Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel) will not make the cut. It’s just too crowded. While Spall seemed like a darkhorse with his National Society of Film Critics win, the movie is just too small and quiet for enough voters I think. Oyelowo would be appropriate, but he’s too new and Selma is dying quickly. Right now a Best Picture nomination is even out of reach. I say the Christmas gift everyone is going to be talking about is Bradley Cooper, who aside being superior in Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper (it’s his best performance to date), succeeds by being fresh in voter’s minds. I say Cooper is the surprise. Cumberbatch (I hate his last name, I keep typing Cucumber), Redmayne and Keaton are locks and whose the fifth guy? Oh yes- the superb Jake Gyllenhaal- who unlike Steve Carrell – can solidify the “cool guy” slot because his film is better liked then Foxcatcher.

    BEST ACTRESS
    Marion Cotillard, Two Days One Night
    Felicity Jones, The Theory of Everything
    Julianne Moore, Still Alice
    Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl
    Reese Witherspoon, Wild

      Marion Cotillard is going to have enough passion votes to edge into number one slots. There’s way too much critical acclaim behind her performance for her to miss (though tell that to Sally Hawkins ala 2008). Still, it would just make the academy appear foolish to ignore such a raved turn.
    Felicity Jones IS the Amy Adams this year, swept along for the ride of her film’s success. I had said earlier that she wouldn’t nab enough passion votes, which could still be the case, but I suspect she just squeezes in. Witherspoon and Moore, on the other hand, have been locked in for a while now- exceeding expectations and turning in amazing work. Pike is the cool hot blonde chick in the hip blockbuster- and she’s also damn good.
    Which leaves us Amy Adams and Jennifer Aniston. Both ladies are in little seen movies that aren’t critically acclaimed. But their performances are the little lights that twinkle in otherwise dark chambers. Does Amy Adams get yet another nomination as the filler nominee? Or is Jennifer Aniston finally going to make Oscar’s shortlist? I say nay to both, but Aniston would seem to have the upper hand since she did get the SAG nomination. BAFTA gave it to Adams, who also just won the Golden Globe. But considering the Comedy Actress race was weak as hell, I am betting that it was a default pick and that neither women prevail on Thursday. But I could be wrong, in which case poor Marion Cotillard suffers from being replaced.  

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
    Steve Carell, Foxcatcher
    Robert Duvall, The Judge
    Ethan Hawke, Boyhood
    Edward Norton, Birdman
    J.K. Simmons, Whiplash

    My big surprise is Carell getting a Best Supporting Actor nomination and NOT Mark Ruffalo; call me crazy, but the BAFTA committee did just cite him for this placement, and you never know. He’s my big bet.
    A rather bland year for this race, so I can’t really ponder if we’re in for any surprises. Robert Duvall is a beloved veteran in a movie most critics hated, but he does have juice in. Could Tom Wilkinson (Selma) bump him off? I’ll be safe and stick to these five; Simmons better win, it’s a performance for the ages. 

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
    Patricia Arquette, Boyhood
    Keira Knightley, The Imitation Game
    Rene Russo, Nightcrawler
    Emma Stone, Birdman
    Meryl Streep, Into the Woods
     
    I love Jessica Chastain, but am reminded of last year when a movie called Rush had Daniel Bruhl getting Best Supporting Actor nods across the board, only to miss out in the end because the movie felt very “been there, done that”. Could the same fate happen to A Most Violent Year, despite a later release date? Possibly, especially if Chastain’s replacement is the fiery and sexy Rene Russo- who has never been more poignant and natural then in Nighcrawler, a movie I suspect will have more fresh impact with voters. Chastain would certainly be a worthy nominee, as would the others I predict- including Meryl Streep- earning her 19th nomination in the role of the Witch, and very wonderous she was. Emma Stone, who many griped about, was great to me, despite my disappointment in her movie. Knightley would be my pick for Best Supporting Actress, as she simply blew me away with her limited but powerful scenes – especially her final speech with Cumberbatch. Arquette will be okay, but frankly not the most interesting. She’s all set to win though. 

    BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
    Birdman
    Boyhood
    The Grand Budapest Hotel
    Mr. Turner
    Nightcrawler

    BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
    American Sniper
    Gone Girl
    The Imitation Game
    The Theory of Everything
    Whiplash
     

    Both writing categories are always tough to predict; American Sniper seems an easy choice for Adapted Screenplay, but I couldn’t get past the God-awful dialogue between Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller (who plays his nagging and annoying wife, and who was not the right choice at all for the role). It just fell flat and came off predictable and sappy. I think instead the writer’s will opt for it, but only because of the intense war battles. Watch out for Wild taking a slot. Mike Leigh, for original screenplay and penning Mr. Turner, never should be underestimated as he’s always an academy favorite here.

    I like your picks, especially the gutsy American Sniper nominations. It’s good that you put it in various categories, because one thing I can’t figure out is where it would show up other than picture if it gets in there. It needs a couple other nominations, which I find hard to predict where they might be. Sound is an interesting choice.

    It definitely sounds like it could be this year’s Lone Survivor, if nothing else. Not a big budget blockbuster, but something dealing with warfare and gunplay enough that it impresses the techs.
