Oscar Nomination Predictions – 2015 (Oh, what the heck!)

Yep. Yep. I’ve remembered to make my picks this year. I’ve even seen a lot of them this time. Here we go:

Best Picture

* Birdman
* The Theory of Everything
* Imitation Game
* The Grand Budapest Hotel
* Boyhood
* Foxcatcher
* Selma
* Nightcrawler
* Gone Girl
* American Sniper

(Does American Sniper get a nod? I keep going back and forth. Oh, what the heck. Ten picks, it is).

Best Actor

* Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game)
* Steve Carell (Foxcatcher)
* Michael Keaton (Birdman)
* Ralph Fienes (Grand Budapest Hotel)
* Eddy Redmayne (Theory of Everything)

(If not Carell or Fienes, then Jake Gyllenhaal, but I”m rooting for Ralph and Steve. I hope it’s not just personal bias.)

Best Actress

* Reece Witherspoon (Wild)
* Felicity Jones (Theory of Everything)
* Jennifer Aniston (Cake)
* Julianne Moore (Still Alice)
* Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl)

(Does Amy Adams get snubbed? She could be the wild card, but I can’t figure out whose place she’d take, so I”m going with snubbed. That, or Jennifer Aniston gets snubbed, but I don’t think so… Hollywood loves an actor who finally lands a different role and shines).

Best Supporting Actor
* J.K. Simmons (Whiplash)
* Edward Norton (Birdman)
* Mark Ruffalo (Foxcatcher)
* Ethan Hawke (Birdman)
* Robert Duvall (The Judge)

(sure)

Best Supporting Actress
* Keira Knightly (The Imitation Game)
* Patricia Arquette (Boyhood)
* Emma Stone (Birdman)
* Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year)
* Imelda Staunton (Pride)

(I honestly have no idea past the first three, and a safe bet on Jessica)
