Alright, let’s do this:
Supporting Actor: Jared Leto: Yes. He completely deserves this. He was brilliant. I was worried he wasn’t going to get it because I didn’t know if the script gave him enough but I am so excited for him. Also, the man knows how to give an acceptance speech.
Costume Design: The Great Gatsby. I personally was hoping for American Hustle, but the costumes from Gatsby are gorgeous. Also, super specific to the time period as well as to the overall look and feel of the movie, so it totally works.
Makeup and Hairstyling: Dallas Buyers Club. This one was a no-brainer for me. Not only in comparison to the other nominees, but overall.
Animated Short: Mr. Hublot Didn’t get a chance to see the shorts, but this looks adorable!
Animated Feature Film: Frozen. Duh. One of Disney’s best in recent years. Beautiful, story, songs, animation, I loved it.
Visual Effects: Gravity Although all of the nominations were well deserved, literally the whole movie is practically one giant special effect. It was beautiful.
Live Action Short: Helium I don’t know this, but it looks gorgeous. We’re all sitting here trying to find it online.
Documentary Short: The Lady in Number 6. This looks adorable.
Documentary Feature: 20 Feet from Stardom I thought Act of Killing was going to get it, but this looks really interesting.
Honorary Awards: Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin, and Piero Tosi All three great contributors to the film world.
Humanitarian Award: Angelina Jolie She is amazing.
Foreign Film: The Great Beauty 1. Go Italy 2. I need to get on watching the foreign films. They all look really fascinating
Sound Mixing: Gravity I have a feeling that they are going to sweep the technical awards.
Sound Editing: Gravity My above statement stands haha
Supporting Actress: Lupita Nyong’o Yes! I wanted her to win so badly. She deserves it and I am sitting here literally beaming. Also, another beautiful speech.
Cinematography: Gravity Like I said, one of the most visually beautiful movies I have seen in a long time. Definitely deserved.
Film Editing: Gravity I was guessing either this one or 12 Years a Slave. Both of them were well done.
Production Design: The Great Gatsby Like I said with the Costume Design, the reason this is great is because of period work and the specific vision. The look of the movie is gorgeous.
Original Score: Gravity So I thought Book Thief was going to get it because of John Williams, but this is awesome too.
Original Song: Let it Go Clear winner. It’s a beautiful song, wonderfully sung by Idina Menzel.
Adapted Screenplay: John Ridley-12 Years a Slave Yes. Absolutely beautiful.
Original Screenplay: Spike Jonze-Her Called that one. A wonderful and poignant script.
Directing: Alfonso Cuaron-Gravity Well deserved. He managed a highly technical movie and getting wonderful performances out of his actor.
Best Actress: Cate Blanchett Considering she commanded this movie and I think is the main reason to see it, this is so well deserved. Also, what a amazing collection of performances. Every single one of them was brilliant.
Best Actor: Matthew McConaughey Another year, another non-win for Leo. Kidding. McConaughey is wonderful and a powerhouse in this performance. Also, another category where I could see any of them winning.
Best Picture: 12 Years a Slave Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. This was the movie of the best picture nominees that made me cry my eyes out.
What do you all think? Any surprises? How right were all of your predictions? I reviewed all of the Best Picture noms, Saving Mr. Banks, August: Osage County, and Blue Jasmine, if anyone wants to check those out!
Until next year!
