Ahhh it’s my favorite time of year again….THE OSCARS! So while the big show is set for Sunday, here are Ticket Stub Love’s predictions for the big winners!
Best Picture: 12 Years a Slave. If not this then American Hustle, but I would be surprised.
Director: Alfonso Cuaron – Gravity. Gravity is a filmmaker’s achievement and Cuaron deserves it all the way.
Actor in Leading Role: Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club. I want Leo to win so badly for Wolf Of Wall Street, but McConaughey has been sweeping all the major awards so he is my pick.
Actress in a Leading Role: Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine
Actor in a Supporting Role: Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club
Actress in a Supporting Role: Lupita Nyong’o for 12 Years a Slave. There is a 50/50 chance between her and Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle. Though I get the sinking feeling JLaw might get it, she already won an Oscar just last year so I’m rooting for Lupita.
Original Screenplay: Her – Spike Jonze
Adapted Screenplay: 12 Years a Slave – John Ridley
Animated Feature Film: Frozen
Foreign Film: The Great Beauty (Italy)
Best Music (original song): Frozen: “Let it Go” — Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez . Though “Happy” by Pharell, also nominated, is such a good song!
Music (original score): Gravity – Steven Price
Cinematography: Gravity – Emmanuel Lubezki
Costume Design: American Hustle – Michael Wilkinson
Documentary Feature: The Act of Killing
Film Editing: Gravity – Alfonso Cuaron, Mark Sanger
Makeup and Hair styling: Dallas Buyers Club – Adruitha Lee and Robin Mathews
Production Design: Gravity – Andy Nicholson, Rosie Goodwin and Joanne Woollard.
Visual Effects: Gravity. I know, I vote too much for Gravity! I just feel like it will win many of the technical awards.
Sound Mixing: Lone Survivor (I’ve kind of just been guessing at this point..)
Sound Editing: All Is Lost
Short Film, live action: Avant Que De Tout Perdre (Just Before Losing Everything)
Short Film, animated: Get a Horse!
Documentary Short: Facing Fear
