What I want to win: Her
What I think will win: 12 Years A Slave
Her is one of the most special films I have ever seen. My reactions while watching went something like this: “Future Los Angeles has a subway that goes to the beach?!?!”……”A romantic relationship between a human and a computer, how the fuck are they going to pull this off?!?!……”Wow, they are actually pulling this off!”……”I really buy that this kind of relationship could exist one day.”…… “This is some next level shit.”……”I’m really invested in their love for one another.”……”Oh my God, they’re breaking up! No! This can’t be happening. Oh my God this is so sad. I’m gonna cry.”……”OK, I’m crying. I am actually crying over a computer breaking up with a human. This is epic.”… When it ended, I sat through the entire credits trying to process what I just saw. When the screen finally went black, I opened my mouth and said, “HOLY. SHIT.” This movie rocked me to my core. I know it won’t win, but it deserves heavy recognition.
12 Years A Slave is a true story. A TRUE fucking story. I still can’t get over that. What happened to Solomon Northup is the most horrifying story I have ever heard. It’s a story that needed to be told, and Steve McQueen and co. did a masterful job bringing to life. If the Academy doesn’t award this film best picture, I’ll be shocked.
Captain Phillips is boring.
Gravity is a stoner movie. Have proof.
American Hustle is the worst movie of the year.
Wolf of Wall Street, Philomena, and Nebraska are all brilliant in their own way, but I’d be surprised if one of them won.
If Her or 12 Years A Slave don’t get the trophy, it better go to Dallas Buyer’s Club or I’m gonna riot.
Who I want to win: Cate Blanchett
Who I think will win: Cate Blanchett
Blue Jasmine the movie is just OK, but Woody Allen wrote the role of lifetime for Cate Blanchett and her performance as Jasmine is fucking brilliant. She’s the clear winner in this category.
Meryl was great in August: Osage County, but Cate was better.
Sandra Bullock screaming in space for 2 hours doesn’t get my Oscar vote.
Judi Dench is so effortlessly good in everything. She was brilliant in Philomena. If Cate doesn’t take it home, I hope it goes to Judi.
The only actress that I see the Academy (not me) choosing over Cate is Amy Adams. She’s been nominated for an Oscar a shit ton of times and has never won. Her performance was great in American Hustle but American Hustle was fucking terrible movie. Shame.
Who I want to win: Matthew McConaughey
Who I think will win: Leonardo DiCaprio
Matthew McConaugheyhas been a great actor his entire career. Fucker’s done it all and he’s done it all really well. This is his best role to date by far (not counting True Detective). To me, it’s hands down the best performance of the year by any actor, male or female.
Leo’s peformance in Wolf is great but to me it’s not at the top of his long list of great performances. The dude deserves to win an Academy Award. It’s his time. But I personally do not think this film is the role that gets him there. But again, it’s “his time” and the Academy may take that heavily into account.
Christian Bale was great in American Hustle but American Hustle was bullshit. And that matters. Sorry, bra.
Bruce Dern is the shit. If he wins, I’ll cheer.
Chiwetel Ejiofor gave a masterful performance. He could win for sure. And I wouldn’t be mad at it.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Who I want to win: Lupita Nyong’o or June Squibb
Who I think will win: Lupita Nyong’o or June Squibb
Yeah I know whatever, calling it a tie is a cheat, but seriously this one is a tough one for me. June Squibb made an already great movie even greater, but Lupita’s performance ripped everyone’s heart out and threw it in a blender. Both are deserving for different reasons.
Sally Hawkins was great in Blue Jasmine, but June and Lupita are better. Simple as that.
Jennifer Lawrence was excellent in American Hustle, but her performance was overshadowed by my distaste for the film.
Julia Roberts was great. But out of all of her great performances, I wouldn’t rank this one in the top.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Who I want to win: Jared Leto
Who I think will win: Michael Fassbender
Jared Leto played a very important role really fucking well. He deserves this.
Michael Fassbender is one of the most versatile actors I have ever watched. He made my skin crawl in 12 Years A Slave in the way that Kevin Spacey’s “John Doe” did, but in a “this is way more fucked up because this actually happened” kind of way.
Bradley Cooper, I love you, I’ve had a ladyboner for you ever since Alias, but your movie sucked.
Jonah Hill is a really good actor. He impresses me more and more every time I see him. I’d be shocked if he won considering the competition, but he more than deserves the nomination.
Barkhad Abdi gave a great performance in a boring movie.
Psych has been nominated for a People’s Choice Award for BEST CABLE TV COMEDY.
