As you “may” have heard, Sunday is the 2014 Academy Awards, or Oscars for the less fancy among us. Expect some outrageous gowns and general stuffiness for Hollywood’s biggest night. Hopefully, host Ellen DeGeneres will be able to liven things up a bit.
While Olympians are happy just to earn a place on the podium, just being nominated really isn’t enough for most actors who will no doubt be perfecting their “Awww. They deserved it” expressions and gracious loser comments.
And although it’s not nearly as high drama as the Superbowl, with so many categories and nominations, everyone’s got their favorites and choices for who will be leaving the awards clutching their well-earned Oscars.
So here’s my breakdown of most of the major categories, with apologies to Film Editing, Documentary Feature, Foreign Language Film, Sound Mixing/Editing, etc.
And for fun, if you can predict more winners than me, I’ll send you a FREE Oscar-nominated film of your choice. Now, on to my picks!
