    A lot of us always hope for our favorites to pull off a surprise win and even though we don’t always get the results we want, if you had to choose for one upset to take place on Oscar night, what would it be and why?

    For me, if I had to pick one upset, it’d be Rosamund Pike over Julianne Moore for Best Actress. I do like Julianne Moore and I am relieved she will finally win this year, but I would be just as ecstatic if Rosamund Pike won because of all the different facets she brought into the character and I would love to see Gone Girl get recognized in the only category in which its nominated since it is such a great film. 
     
    How about you folks?

    I’m hoping we see a Carell win. But obviously it’s not gonna happen.

    Mr Turner for Best Score. If not, Inherent Vice for Costume Design (I have a sneaky feeling it might win CDG).

    Edward Norton for Supporting Actor. 
    “Lost Stars” for Best Song.

    I’m tempted to say Rosamund Pike for Lead Actress. But if Moore lost after winning the CCA, Globe, SAG, and BAFTA, I would seriously think, “Ok. She’s joining Deborah Kerr and Thelma Ritter as great actresses who never won an Oscar.” Because if not now, then when? Even when Russell Crowe won the CCA/Globe/SAG/BAFTA for A Beautiful Mind but lost the Oscar, it was softened by the fact he had just won the previous year for Gladiator. Of course Geraldine Page gives everyone hope because she lost her fifth Oscar (as Julianne would too), then her sixth, then her seventh, and finally made the eighth time the charm, at the expense of Whoopi Goldberg in The Color Purple. I don’t know what would outweigh the other: Enthusiasm for Rosamund Pike winning for such a great performance in a film that Oscar should have given more nominations, or sadness/disappointment for Julianne Moore losing yet again after sweeping the televised awards.

    I would be fine with any of the contenders for Best Actress to win.
    I would be fine with Grand Budapest or Nightcrawler winning Screenplay.
    I would be fine with any of the score contenders winning.

    The upset I really want to see is Whiplash in Sound Mixing or Editing. That would just make me ecstatic. Worthy winner for either one.

    I dont think it was nominated for Sound Editing, which is too bad, since a double nomination here may have given it a bigger boost. I still think it has a better shot than Unbroken though.

    ETA: Misread. Film Editing. I agree, it would be a worthy winner, but I dont see this happening at all.

    Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl! My favorite in the category and a performance that needs to be awarded. Julianne Moore was great, but worthy of a clean sweep? No.

    Inherent Vice winning Adapted Screenplay would not be an upset. Boyhood and Linklater losing Picture and Director would be welcomed.
