Happy Oscar Sunday friends, followers, and movie obsessed people like myself!
It’s one of the most magical days of the year and though I had initially spoken out about my slight disappointment in this year’s nominations, due to FOMO (fear of missing out), I have decided to live-blog tonight’s show anyway.
Why? Because it’s fun and you guys make it oh so worth it.
And! To sweeten tonight’s live-blogging, while also gauging how psychic I am – here are my predictions for the top awards.
This one is totally going to come down to Michael Keaton (Birdman) vs: Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) but I’m quite confident based on the award season thus far that Eddie Redmayne has it. While Bradley Cooper was A+ in American Sniper (and while I definitely cannot wait to see him in a suit on the red carpet) I don’t think this is his year. But hey – if it is. No complaints here.
Julianne Moore has this one in the bag. She has swept every award show this season and I’m confident tonight will play out exactly the same. But because I love surprises – if one of the other actresses wins, that would be totally awesome too. Like Rosamund Pike. Whose role in Gone Girl is by far my favorite performance of the year.
This one COULD be a curveball – the Best Director category never does seem to ever be a sure thing. That said, it seems Richard Linklater has this one for Boyhood, with Alejandro G. Inarritu following closely in behind for Birdman.
So come back tonight at 7:00pm EST for all the live blogging fun AND if you’d like to fill out your own Oscar 2015 Ballot as I’ve done above – visit the NY Times Oscar Ballot to select all your predicted winners for tonight.
Happy Sunday! And see you on the Red Carpet!
