This is my annual Academy Award picks for 2015. Last year was great for smaller films the majority dominated my favourites of 2014. The Grand Budapest Hotel has surprised me greatly, I can’t believe a film that came out in March of 2014 became an Oscar contender. Boyhood seems to be the front runner for best film, it’s a great film don’t get me wrong but I truly think Birdman and Grand Budapest are far more deserving of the award. All will be revealed this Sunday. So here are my predictions:
Who will win: Boyhood
Who should win: Birdman or The Grand Budapest Hotel
Who will win: Richard Linklater
Who should win: Alejandro G. Iñárritu
Who will win: It sadness me to say but I think Eddie Redmayne. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great performance but I truly couldn’t give a flying monkeys.
Who should win: Michael Keaton
Who will win: Julianne Moore this is Academy politics at it’s finest just because she is due for a win. For me Moore has done better work.
Who should win: Rosamund Pike she was by far the best performance all year by any actor. I genuinely feel sorry for her attending these awards knowing Moore will win.
Who will win: J.K. Simmons
Who should win: J.K. Simmons
Who will win: Patricia Arquette
Who should win: Patricia Arquette
Who will win: How To Train Your Dragon 2
Who should win: Big Hero 6
Who will win: Wes Anderson
Who should win: Wes Anderson
Who will win: The Theory of Everything
Who should win: Whiplash
