    almost all of my predictions were spot on, except for original score and song.
    Woooooooooooooooow feeling great.
    Congrats to 12 Years A Slave ,Director Steve Macqueen, Actress Lupito Nyong’o, John Ridley and team for our emphatic win. We did it…

  2. pawzza says:

    Gravity was boring and predictable, not sure how it was even nominated, probably political somehow!

  3. Julienne says:

    12 Years a Slave has been done a million times. GRAVITY was captivating and extremely entertaining.

  4. Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different
    subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design.
    Excellent choice of colors!

  5. Ganesh Tiwari says:

    my predictions will be like this
    Best Picture – 12 Years A Slave
    Best Director – Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity)
    Best Actor – Rodeo Cowboy Matthew Macoughney
    (Dallas Buyers Club) or Chiwetel Ejiofor(12 Years A
    Slave), they slightly have edge ahead of Leo. And if Academy voters pull a surprise it will be Booze
    addicted ageing Bruce Dern(Nebraska) with that
    trophy. may be voters will have mercy on Leo D. most
    competitive will be Best Actor category though.
    Best Actress – Cate Blanchett(BlueJasmine)
    Best Screenplay Adapted- John Ridley (12 Years A Slave)
    Best Original Screenplay – Spike Jonze(Her)
    Best Supporting Actor – Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers
    Club), Barkhad may pull a surprise, but chances are
    Best Supporting Actress – Lupita Nyong’o(12 Years A Slave), Academy’s voters may be tempted for Jennifer
    Lawrence though, but Lupita is absolutely flawless.
    Best Animation – Frozen will win but i’d love to see
    Zebra Tale “Khumba” to win.
    Best Foreign movie – there’s no “Blue is the Warmest
    Colour” in nominations so “The Great Beauty” will win.
    Best original Score – Saving Mr Banks
    and Best Original Song – “The Moon Song” (Her).

  6. Guest says:

    Her is a stupid movie based on as silly concept. People can’t handle the truth so I doubt that 12 Years a slave will win.

    • Rick says:

      Her was one of the best films this year, by far. It would be in contention to seriously win Best Picture of Joaquin Phoenix hadn’t slammed the Oscars.

  7. There’s a difference between “should” win and “will” win, particuarly with the Academy. They’re not as clear cut in their decisions as other Awards Forums. has a good breakdown of nominees for all categories.

  8. Dina says:

    12 Years a Slave will win Best Picture and Alfonso Cuaron will win Best Director. Split like last year.

  9. Daryle says:

    Personally, I thought the National Board of Review’s call was the right one. Of the movies I saw, Her was the best. But the race seems to be between Gravity and 12 Years a Slave, and I honestly can’t predict which will come out on top. I do think the Academy will spread the wealth this year. There was, to me, not one movie with a WOW factor, There were a lot of very good movies, each “very good” in decidedly different ways. It is year where I think the nominees can be truly proud that they were nominated, and shouldn’t care about winning. Predicting the winner seems like a crap shoot. Only two awards seem to be a lock at this point – Blanchett and Guaron.

    • Rick says:

      Totally agree. Her was the best film this year and most unique film in a decade. Phoenix just killed its chances by bashing the Oscars and Academy. He wasn’t even nominated for best actor, which is laughable considering he slayed everyone this year.

  10. Gary says:

    Gravity had at least one serious plot error which disqualifies it from Best Picture. Captain Philips was a perfectly structured film. Oblivion was the best SF film in years and didn’t get nominated. Wolf was a better constructed film than American Hustle, although AH had 4 amazing performances. Best Picture….might as well judge snowflakes.

  11. Dian says:

    American Hustle

  12. curioius1 says:

    Oh God, why aren’t we free from sick racism even in Variety?
    We are speaking of filmmaking at it’s finest with each of these films and there is no point in bringing such terrible energy into the discussion.

  13. cadavra says:

    Please list all the rights that have been taken away from you by Obama. And remember to capitalize the first word of each sentence.

    • Jay says:

      Reading comprehension isn’t your strong suit, is it? The question is: which movie will win Best Picture Oscar? Your answer would be relevant to the question: Why do I hate the President of the United States?

  14. Rick Aneeda says:

    Her should win, it is honestly a better film than 12 years a slave, but 12 years is such oscar bait that it reeks of it.

  15. Jake says:

    There should be a corresponding poll of who people want to win if they had a ballot
