Well, the Oscar nominations for this year are out and as expected, “Gravity”, and “American Hustle”, scored the most nominations. I have seen both movies in the theater and while both movies are fantastic, I think, “Gravity” will win big this year.
Of course, there are a lot of snubs and it’s interesting that George Clooney got the snub for “Gravity” as I thought he was the best part of the film. The Oscars snubbing Clooney? Wow. They hardly ever do that. That’s okay though. Clooney isn’t worried about it as he already is an Oscar winner for his film, “Syriana” and I’m sure he will get nominated for acting roles again in the future. He might have a chance to get nominated for “The Monuments Men”.
I’ve noticed that “Lone Survivor” did end up making a few nominations at this years Oscars after all but only the smaller categories… it only got nominated for best Sound mixing/editing. It got the snub for everything else.
I don’t agree with Ellen Degeneres hosting the Oscars again ’cause I can’t stand that annoying woman.
Anyhow, here are my predictions for this years Oscars:
BEST PICTURE: Gravity
BEST ACTOR: Chiwetel Ejiofor “12 Years A Slave” (I’ve never seen the film yet but looks real good)
BEST ACTRESS: Sandra Bullock, “Gravity”
ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Barkhad Abdi “Captain Phillips” (Haven’t seen “Captain Phillips” either but want to)
ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Jennifer Lawrence, “American Hustle”

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY: Gravity
COSTUME DESIGN: American Hustle
DIRECTING: Alfonso Cuaron “Gravity”

I hate award shows but I like the Oscars. I watch it every year.
