  1. Wow, glad to see i’m no the only one who tries to predict the 2015 awards season, before the 2014 season even ended šŸ™‚

    Anyway, I think my prediction goes something like this:

    Best Picture:
    Big Eyes
    Birdman
    Foxcatcher
    Fury
    Gone Girl
    The Imitation Game
    Inherent Vice
    Intersteller
    The Search
    Wild

    Best Director:
    Paul Thomas Anderson – Inherent Vice
    David Ayer – Fury
    David Fincher – Gone Girl
    Christopher Nolan – Intersteller
    (can’t think of a fifth nominee)

    Best Original Screenplay:
    Birdman
    Boyhood
    Foxcatcher
    The Grand Budapest Hotel
    Interstellar

    Best Adapted Screenplay:
    Gone Girl
    The Imitation Game
    Inherent Vice
    The Search
    Wild

    Best Lead Actor:
    Steve Carrel – Foxcatcher
    Benedict Cumberbatch – The Imitation Game
    Phillip Seymour Hoffman – A Most Wanted Man
    Michael Keaton – Birdman
    Joaquin Phoenix – Inherent Vice

    Other Options
    Chadwick Boseman – Get on Up | Paul Dano – Love and Mercy | Ben Foster- Lance Armstrong biopic

    Best Lead Actress:
    Amy Adams – Big Eyes
    Berenice Bejo – The Search
    Nichole Kidman – Grace of Monaco
    Emma Stone – Magic in the Moonlight
    Reese Witherspoon – Wild

    Other options:
    Carrey Mulligan – Far from the Madding Crowd

    Best Suppoting Actor:
    Robert De Niro – Hands of Stone
    Robert Duvall – The Judge
    Paul Giamati – Love and Mercy
    JK Simmons – Whiplash
    Christoph Waltz – Big Eyes

    Other Options
    Joel Edgerton – Exodus | Garrett Hedlund – Unbroken | Ethan Hawke – Boyhood | Gary Oldman – Child 44

    Best Supporting Actress:
    Annette Bening – The Search
    Marcia Gay Harden – Magic in the Moonlight
    Keira Knightley – The Imitation Game
    Rosamund Pike – Gone Girl (I guess she will be be considered a supporting actress, after all, she is supposed to be “Gone” throughout most of the movie…)
    Maryl Streep – Into the Woods

    Other Options
    Patricia Arquette – Boyhood | Elizabeth Banks – Love and Mercy | Chloe Moretz – The Equalizer | Krystin Ritter – Big Eyes | Tika Sumpter – Get on Up

    Best Animated Feature:
    Big Hero 6
    The Boxtrolls
    The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart (there’s always a french film in this category…)
    How to Train Your Dragon 2
    The Lego Movie

    • Glad to see I’m not the only one putting my eggs in the Paul Giamatti/Love & Mercy basket. The role sounds baity, and we all know Paul Giamatti can pull off just about any role. “The Lego Movie” is going to storm the animated category.

      • I think that 2014 will be Giamati’s year, with JK Simmons being the runner-up in that category. I also think that Amy Adams will finally take the Best Actress award (after 5 previous nomintations with any wins, just like Kate Winslet).

          • Definitely. I just think that Amy’s win will come earlier. DiCaprio dosen’t have any known projects in 2014, and he won’t be in Scorsese next movie, “Silence”, which comes out in 2015 (it will star Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Nissan and Ken Watanabe).

    • Interested in your faith in “The Cobbler.” McCarthy’s “Win Win” was great, but I’m not sure that success means he’ll be consistent. Also I don’t deny Sandler has acting talent (See Reign Over Me/Punch Drunk Love) but I’m not sure the Academy will be ready/willing to give him any award attention after all these years of subpar films. I think he’d need to develop a stronger slate of good performances before this ever happens.
