Obama once again lectures India on rights who are still reeling from a new swine flu scare, Kiev braces for a rebel attack on key port city and the new Boko Haram videos hints ties with ISIS.
Also, the Oscars ceremony happens on February 22…aka…TODAY!
So screw all that- let’s talk about the Oscars. It’s party time…at least for them…you know…whatever….
I had actually forgotten that today is the day the Oscar statuettes will be given over to the selected winners. I had been swamped with work and whatever free time I had I spent it watching Oscar nominated and nearly nominated movies (You should have been nominated for Best Actress, Jennifer Aniston!)
And there are so many categories present in the Academy Awards section but screw them as well. Let’s talk about the categories that the general mass cares about. Now..this is nothing but yet another person’s opinion: people will either agree or disagree with me and when the ceremony does happen, i’m sure we’ll see a spate of news about the disgruntle of the choices made by the Academy and a lot of debate both online and in face to face private and personal conversations. This I think will persist until the weekend or at least until something else happens or Kim Jong Un throws yet another hissy fit with a nuclear threat behind it.
So let’s begin. Here are my predictions as to who will win filmdom’s most prestigious award….
Ok so here they are. I can’t wait to see how right (or how wrong) i was:
Best Picture: Boyhood…duh…but i’d rather see The Theory of Everything or Birdman winning the Oscar for this category.
Best Actor: Eddie Redmayne- The Theory of Everything for his portrayal as Stephen Hawking
Steve Carell- Foxcatcher for his portrayal as John du Pont
Best Supporting Actor: J.K Simmons as Terrence Fletcher in Whiplash
Edward Norton- Birdman
But seriously, who are we kidding? J.K Simmons is gonna win for sure because he IS awesome, Terrence Fletcher is awesome and the movie is mind-blowingly awesome!
Best Actress: Julianne Moore- Still Alice as Dr Alice Howland
Marion Cotillard- Two Days, One Night as Sandra Bya
Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette- Boyhood as Olivia Evans
Emma Stone- Birdman
Best Director: Now..once again there is a very good chance that Richard Linklater is gonna go home with this award from this category but personally, I’d want-
Alejandro González Iñárritu: Birdman
or maybe even….
Bennet Miller: Foxcatcher
Clearly, I’ve favored Birdman a lot. But who is to say that the Academy won’t do the same to either Birdman or Boyhood.
Time will tell, celebrities will win their Oscars, quite possibly maybe even…
and life will go on. Frankly speaking- I don’t care who wins (ok maybe I do a little..) but at this point, I just hope the host does a good job and I’d like to wish Neil Patrick Harris all the very best.
Let’s see who wins…
