Road to the Oscars: My Picks

We’re smack dab in the middle of award season, so much so, the Screen Actor Guild Awards (SAG Awards) is happening as we speak, and will be wrapped up by the time this post goes up. The Producers Guild of America Awards (PGA Awards) were yesterday, here are the results. The road to the Oscars is shortening with only the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA), arranging February 8th, and the various guild awards are left, before the big night in Hollywood. After seeing the results of all the awards so far who do you having winning the Oscars this year? See my ballot here. The only nomination, or the lack there of, that upsets me is not seeing The Lego Movie on the Best Animation Feature ballot. I would like to hear your opinion, hence why I’m writing this little post. Here are some of my predictions to get the conversation started: 

Best Picture: Birdman 

Actor in a Leading Role: Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything 

Actress in a Leading Role: Julianne Moore, Still Alice 

Actor in a Supporting Role: J.K. Simmons, Whiplash 

Actress in a Supporting Role: Patricia Arquette 

Best Directing: Richard Linklater, Boyhood 

Best Visual Effects: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 

FYI: I’m planning the next post in the genre series, it going to be the Musical and Dance genre. Hopefully you all are ready for some musical numbers in the coming weeks.
