    When considering my personal preferences, I find myself impossibly divided on Best Actress. I admire Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, and Cate Blanchett’s performances almost equally. External factors knock Bullock down a peg (I’d rather pretend she won that other Oscar for “Gravity” than have her win a second), but I’d still be equally happy to see Adams or Blanchett win.

    Best Director is an impossible choice for me also. The artistry of McQueen and Cuaron is hard to choose between, and both wins would be historic.

    Would you like to see a tie in any Oscar categories?

    It’s a hard one but I would say:

    Director: Cuaron & McQueen

    and Best Actor: DiCaprio & Ejiofor

    I would choose best director and give it to Alfonso Cuaron and Martin Scorsese.

    I actually wouldn’t mind seeing a tie between 12 Years a Slave and Before Midnight in Adapted Screenplay. 

    There’s also The Wind Rises and Frozen in Animated Feature. Each seem to have the critical praise that justify a win in the category.

    I’d have to say Supporting Actor for Leto and Fassbender.

    I wanted to say Adapted Screenplay. But to be honest, I want Before Midnight to win outright, despite my admiration for 12 Years.

    Original Screenplay: Blue Jasmine & Her

    Best Actor: Chiwetel Ejiofor & Leonardo DiCaprio (mainly just too see the internet go nuts)

    Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawerence & Lupita Nyong’o

    I think this is the first year in the last couple years where I personally wouldn’t choose anyone to tie. If I HAD to choose one, it would be a tie between Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock, but other than that nothing comes to mind.

    Now this differs greatly from the last couple of years where I think a tie would have been deserved for:

    2013: Best Actress – Jennifer Lawrence and Quvenzhane Wallis
    2012: Best Supporting Actress – Octavia Spencer and Melissa McCarthy
    2011: Best Actress – Natalie Portman and Annette Benning

    If I could only choose one best actor I would go with Matthew McConaughy but I would be happy for Leonardo DiCaprio to win too so both actors would be winning for the best performances they have yet given in their careers.

    I would not bet money that a tie will happen again for a long time, especially on the preferential voting system. There have only been six in the Oscars history of over 86 years. So, I am not counting on it.

    If Leo won in a tie, oh my god the internet would go nuts. Imagine all the gifs, Leo crying because he won but didn’t win.

    Side note: if the internet were in charge of Oscar campaigns he’d be a lock. Then again so would “JLaw”.
