In case the whole final set of winners -but one- go against your own preferences, which is that particular win that would leave you satisfied or joyful enough to just forget the deception caused by how the other categories finally resulted?February 21, 2015 at 7:03 pm #180476
I would love for Bendict Cumberbatch to pull off a surprise upset, because I thought he had the best most likeable character out of all 5 of them.February 21, 2015 at 7:04 pm #180477

After that, I dont actually care, except, I want one particular film and performance, as well as Sound Editing and Mixing, Best Pic, Editing, and Adapted Screenplay to go home empty-handed.February 21, 2015 at 7:23 pm #180482
Bradley Cooper, actor, and Glen Campbell, songFebruary 21, 2015 at 7:27 pm #180483
Honestly: Boyhood, Rick Linklater, Grand Budapest for Original Screenplay, Citizenfour for Documentary, Princess Kaguya or Boxtrolls for Animated Feature, Butter Lamp for Live Action Short, The Reaper for Doc Short. The first four are very much possible.February 21, 2015 at 7:28 pm #180484

Linklater for Director. Runner-up: Keaton for Actor.February 21, 2015 at 7:44 pm #180488
Whiplash winning Best Picture would be awesome. But that isn’t happening, so I’ll go with it winning Film Editing or Sound Mixing, or even Adapted Screenplay. Could it just go 5/5 please? That’s not too much to ask.February 21, 2015 at 7:54 pm #180489
I know it seems inevitable, but I will feel really relieved to see Julianne Moore’s name called. It doesn’t seem like anyone else can take it, but… Is the Academy finally going to honor a Lead Actress in her 50s, something they’ve only ever done once, and that was over 62 years ago. Will they be willing to overlook Moore’s just-okay film and instead focus on her perfect performance? I really really hope so. Giving me comfort is knowing there isn’t a clear alternative. Lets just say I would be a thousand times more nervous had Jennifer Aniston gotten in.
I would be really happy to see Michael Keaton win. I’m going for Eddie Redmayne, but to see a veteran actor get an Oscar nomination for his comeback role? That would be awesome.
Hoepfully Wes Anderson in Original Screenplay. These screenplay categories are the perfect place to honor quirky screenwriters who may be too divisive in Picture and/or Director. See: Quentin Tarantino, Alan Ball, Charlie Kaufman and Michael Gondry, Diablo Cody, and last year’s Spike Jonze. Plus, Wes hasn’t ever been this close.
