The 100% Totally Correct Oscar Picks

February 22, 2015

Hello all. Mark here.

The Oscars are upon us and the world’s attention is focused solely on the Best Picture race. Boyhood and Birdman are neck and neck and the best Oscar predictors are split between the two. I had a really hard time picking Birdman  but its victories leading up to the Oscars give it a 54% chance to win (Thank you Gold Derby).

Another problem with predicting this years winners is the lack of a Gravity like film that sucks up all the technical awards. For instance, critics are predicting a a split in the Sound Editing (American Sniper) and Sound Mixing (Whiplash) categories. This is normally unheard of but that is where we are at with these Oscars. It is a wild year full of sure things (Arquette, Simmons, Moore) and who knows (Actor, Director, Picture).

The following picks are 100% correct and will win you any Oscar pool. Good luck!

    Nice picks, I’d love to see some love for The Grand Budapest Hotel, but the Boyhood/ Birdman combo is possibly too strong! Here’s my predictions – – I’ve got Boyhood for director, supporting actress, best film. I’m still bitter that Lego Movie is not nominated for Best Animated Film!

      I hope Boyhood wins best picture. Birdman has the momentum though. Bums me out. It is wild that The Lego Movie wasn’t nominated! However, it made over a billion at the box office so it has that.

        Haha, yeah I’m sure they’re not too worried! I see Birdman as a shoo in for cinematography, and it has a very good shot at best film, should be close!

        I hope Nightcrawler wins the Original Screenplay Oscar. That would be cool.
