2015 Oscar Predictions

Sort by: Showing 10 items
Rating: List Type:
Average listal rating (620 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.9
Best Picture
American Sniper
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Imitation Game
The Theory of Everything

What Will Win: Boyhood
What Should Win: Birdman
Snubs: Gone Girl, Nightcrawler, Lego Movie, and Foxcatcher

Thoughts: Shocked seeing Gone Girl not in especially since it was the movie everyone was picking to win last year also sad seeing Nightcrawler get overlooked but overall it's a good category.

Boyhood and Birdman are the frontrunners I want Birdman to win but I wouldn't complain if Boyhood won both amazing films.

Best Actor
Steve Carell – Foxcatcher
Bradley Cooper – American Sniper
Benedict Cumberbatch – The Imitation Game
Michael Keaton – Birdman
Eddie Redmayne – The Theory of Everything

Who Will Win: Keaton
Who Should Win: Keaton
Snubs: Jake Gyllenhaal and David Oyelowo

Thoughts: Another good category really disappointed Jake wasn't nominated for arguably the best performance of his career he's so underrated it annoys me. Also David became MLK just a stunning performance I don't see how Bradley deserved a nomination more than them.

This is Michael and Eddie's race both performances were game changing so I will be happy if one of them win.
slytherinphoenix 's rating:
Best Actress
Marion Cotillard – Two Days, One Night
Felicity Jones – The Theory of Everything
Julianne Moore – Still Alice
Rosamund Pike – Gone Girl
Reese Witherspoon – Wild

Who Will Win: Julianne
Who Should Win: Rosamund
Snubs: Jennifer Aniston and Amy Adams

Thoughts: WOW I was shocked that Marion got in over Jennifer she hasn't been talked about at all but I'm happy to see her get nominated for anything cause she's just brilliant.

I'm so torn between Julianne and Rosamund both amazing performances but I think it's Julianne's year her performance in "Still Alice" was so powerful and heartbreaking while Rosamund was terrific in Gone Girl I give the Julianne the win.
slytherinphoenix 's rating:
Best Director
Alejandro González Iñárritu – Birdman
Richard Linklater – Boyhood
Bennett Miller – Foxcatcher
Wes Anderson – The Grand Budapest Hotel
Morten Tyldum – The Imitation Game

Who Will Win: Linklater
Who Should Win: Linklater
Snubs: Ava DuVernay, David Fincher, and Damien Chazelle

Thoughts: Very disappointed in the Academy for not nominating Ava she really deserved it Selma was so inspiring sad seeing it get little love.

Linklater will win his story is amazing if you spend 12 years making a film you better get awarded for it especially if it's as good as Boyhood.

slytherinphoenix 's rating:
Best Supporting Actress
Patricia Arquette – Boyhood
Laura Dern – Wild
Keira Knightley – The Imitation Game
Emma Stone – Birdman
Meryl Streep – Into the Woods

Who Will Win: Patricia
Who Should Win: Tie between Patricia and Emma
Snubs: Jessica Chastain

Thoughts: Ugh okay Academy we get it Meryl is one of the best actresses ever but can you please stop nominating her for everything she does? PLEASE. Jessica deserved a nomination sad to see her get overlooked.

Okay I know you probably think I'm crazy for putting Emma up there with Patricia and I get it Patricia was freaking stunning in Boyhood she stole every scene she was in. And I know Emma won't win but she blew my mind in Birdman she's one of those actresses people don't take seriously and I feel like she really showcased her talent and how amazing she really can be I hope people start realizing how great she is after seeing the movie.
slytherinphoenix 's rating:
Best Animated Film
Big Hero 6
The Boxtrolls
How to Train Your Dragon 2
Song of the Sea
The Tale of Princess Kaguya

What Will Win: Dragon
What Should Win: Tie between Big Hero and Princess Kaguya

Thoughts: Okay the racism against Legos has got to stop seriously how is Lego Movie not nominated? It was one of the best films of the year I can't think of a logical way to explain why it's not here. Anyways The Tale of Princess Kaguya almost makes up for that snub I'm so happy it was nominated if you haven't seen it please watch it ASAP.

It's between HTTYD2, Big Hero, and Princess Kaguya all three great films I see HTTYD2 winning but I will be happy if any of those movies win.

My predictions for the 2015 Academy Awards I will pick who I think will win and who should win and what performances/films were snubbed
