    By far – The Grand Budapest Hotel. Style over any sort of substance.

    Absolutely American Sniper. I’m still mourning for those 2 hours that I’ve spent for watching that trash.

    I’ll go with The King’s Speech 2.0, er, I mean, The Imitation Game. Same formula (famed Brit fighting Nazis during WWII) but with colder direction.

    The weakest two were by far the Theory of Everything and American Sniper. Basically a coin toss between them.

    I stand by my unpopular belief that Birdman is the worst of these eight films.

    The comparison would work of it weren’t for the fact that The Kings Speech isn’t about a famed Brit fighting Nazis during WWII…

    Never got the hooplah over “Birdman” at all and this is coming from someone who for years couldn’t wait for a Michael Keaton comeback.

    The Theory of Everything for sure. Complete fluff. The performances are the only saving grace. Makes me nauseous to think that that crap got in over Nightcrawler and Gone Girl.

    The British biopics gave Birdman a run for the money, but nothing can touch Inarritu’s toxic, reactionary disaster.

    Between The Theory of Everything and American Sniper- I think ToE has the edge as the performances and score were actually good.

    I give Redmayne credit for a strong performance, but ToE did not stand out much from the pack, like the other nominees manged to do.

    I’ll go with The Theory of Everything. For as much as American Sniper is yay America rules (not pro war), I thought it did have some very tense action scenes. The Theory of Everything to me came as super shameless Oscar bait and I’m normally a sucker for Oscar bait.
