1. Boyhood (2014)
Although I haven't seen it yet, this is my FINAL choice for what I think is gonna be this year's Best Picture of 2014!...

People who added this item 145  Average listal rating (65 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.6 
2. Selma (2014)
A critical best choice from what I've heard, but I don't think it's gonna pull off the upset over "Boyhood"...

People who added this item 1051  Average listal rating (672 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.1 
3. The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
Don't know how on earth this film got so much pull, virtually at the second, being released so early in the year. Nevertheless, it's near it's been so honored at the year's end but I just think it's been released too early in the year for the final win.

Besides, pales in comparison to hard-hitting, 'edgy' Best Picture winners of the past. Where are the "Schindler's Lists" or "the Godfathers" or even "the Hurt Lockers"?...

ToonHead2102's rating:

After reading a recent bad review of the film -which I'll mention more in depth in one of my other predictions lists- I'm almost astounded this film managed to make Best Picture contendership in the first place?...

5. The Imitation Game (2014)
'Overrated' compared to what people are saying about it. If this film manages to prove it will single-handedly show that 2014 in full had little if anything to offer...

ToonHead2102's rating:

People who added this item 333  Average listal rating (199 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.4 
6. American Sniper (2014)
This one kinda snuck in the back door. Think it's too much of a "quick decision" for it to win the Grand Prize, I think the film's more 'immediate' intentions are perhaps winning some of the more technical awards - but more importantly Bradley Cooper for Best Actor!...

People who added this item 394  Average listal rating (230 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.8 
7. The Theory of Everything (2014)
Wait, I'm gonna hurl! Can't believe somebody finally went an made a movie about this Academia 'puppet'. And having the gull to romantisize his life and work. Flimsy as it is.

This is the one I want to win the least!

People who added this item 14  Average listal rating (5 ratings) 9.4  IMDB Rating 7.6 
8. Whiplash (2013)
This to me seems like it will forever go down as the year's favorite -which gives it not a leg to stand on when it comes to it's chances of winning- the "Raging Bull" of the year, or maybe more like "Taxi Driver". Everybody's favorite, the cool film as supposed to the 'professional' best...


TOO SOON? ...I haven't really seen much from 2014 yet and am in no big hurry to to be perfectly honest. Nevertheless each year I like to torture myself with these types of predictions.

So here is this year's annual roundup. So far these aren't actually MY choices, I found them off a list on the IMDB. These series of lists I plan to post I want to make perfectly clear - some or most of these are films I haven't seen. I'm simply posting my choices here based on buzz that I've heard over the net. Please keep that in mind. Let's see how many I get right this time. Will update as the year goes along...
