Final 2013 Oscar Predictions

Because if it’s not published on the internet, it’s not official.

Picture:
American Hustle
Captain Phillips
Gravity
12 Years a Slave
The Wolf of Wall Street
6. Nebraska
7. Dallas Buyers Club
8. Philomena
9. Her
10. Blue Jasmine

So I can’t believe no one else has figured out the ideal way to rank this new best picture system.

Director:
Alfonso Cuaron – Gravity
Paul Greengrass – Captain Phillips
Steve McQueen – 12 Years a Slave
David O. Russell – American Hustle
Martin Scorsese – The Wolf of Wall Street

Actor:
Bruce Dern – Nebraska
Leonardo DiCaprio – The Wolf of Wall Street
Chiwetel Ejiofor – 12 Years a Slave
Tom Hanks – Captain Phillips
Matthew McConaughey – Dallas Buyers Club

Actress:
Amy Adams – American Hustle
Cate Blanchett – Blue Jasmine
Sandra Bullock – Gravity
Judi Dench – Philomena
Emma Thompson – Saving Mr. Banks

American Hustle feels like an avalanche about to happen. It could get everything. Even Meryl Streep.

Supporting Actor:
Barkhad Abdi – Captain Phillips
Daniel Bruhl – Rush
Michael Fassbender – 12 Years a Slave
Jonah Hill – The Wolf of Wall Street
Jared Leto – Dallas Buyers Club

Jonah Hill needs this the most. If he gets this, his career is improved the most, right?

Supporting Actress:
Jennifer Lawrence – American Hustle
Lupita Nyong’o – 12 Years a Slave
Julia Roberts – August: Osage County
June Squibb – Nebraska
Oprah Winfrey – Lee Daniels’ The Butler

I am not sure I’m comfortable with the world giving Jennifer Lawrence another Oscar, but I do like thinking of her as a modern day Audrey Hepburn. Which is fun.
