Oscars 2013

While last year I boycotted The Oscars by dressing up from my favorite Snubbed Film, and watched Drive at Allison‘s place, this year I’ve actually got Legit Plans. For my celebrations, I will be attending a TIFF Members-Only cocktail reception and dinner at Spice Route thanks to, and with, Angelina. Although I am unable to get drunk due to a certain medical condition at this time, in my imagination I will be downing Lychee Cosmo after Lychee Cosmo, and finishing with a glass of Champagne.

If you’re interested in my opinion, here is a rundown of my picks, and very brief notes on the matter of the Oscars this year.

BOLD Denotes that films that I suspect will win. PINK are the ones I hope will win. GREEN are my fantasy picks, that were not nominated.

Best Picture

Of these options, Argo is obviously going to win. Although sometimes the Academy pulls a fast one. I liked but didn’t LOVE Les Mis, so that leaves Silver Linings Playbook as the only option I’d like to see win.Although I appreciate the gesture, I think it’s cute that Django is nominated, it’s a great movie (to be sure) but Oscar Material? Meh.

 

Best Director

I haven’t seen most of these films, so I’m left with rooting for one that’s only “Pretty Good”. I am honestly relieved that Tom Hooper wasn’t nominated for Les Mis because that was one of my largest criticism of the film – the directing was *awful*.Moonrise is the best film Anderson has done since Tannenbaums. (Although of Affleck didn’t get nom’d there was certainly no hope for Wes).

 

Best Actor

Bradley Cooper impressed my socks off with his emotional acting chops, I hope he wins (even though Jackman or Day Lewis is more likely).Viggo in there as my fantasy pick: I love him, especially when he’s playing his own twin.
John Hawkes was out-of-this-world amazing in The Sessions – can’t believe he’s not among the nom’d.
