I'm a little surprised "The Butler" did not make the cut. Of course the movies main character "Cecil Gaines" was very loosely based on Eugene Allen, the butler who actually served under 8 US Presidents, from Truman to Reagan. Although the movie clearly had many historical inaccuracies, I still feel it is one worth watching if you haven't done so already.

I am also surprised "Wolf of Wall Street" had as many nominations as it did, seeing how a lot of the reviews weren't so good and there were many complaints of the "F-bomb" being dropped over 500+ times.

I am glad to see Captian Phillips and Gravity in the mix. I especially enjoyed Gravity, saw it in 3D and it was one of the more amazing films in that context.

I never saw the Butler but from what I gathered listeningto the "experts" discuss it - the movie stood very littrle chance of getting nominated. The only actor that was expected to be nominated was Oprah but she was shut out as well.

Most of the WoWS reviews I have seen have been solid. Some reviewers even saying that it is definitely the best film of the year but that the perception that it is golorifying the drugs, sex, and ill-gotten wealth may prevent it from beatig out a more serious film like 12 Years a Slave.

The only 2 films that I have seen are American Hustle and Gravity.

Hustle was a "fun" movie with some serious acting performances. Gravity was visually stunning in 3D.

I will be seeing WoWS this weekend.

Default Re: 2014 Academy Awards

If I had a vote...

Best Picture: 12 Years a Slave

Best Director: Steve McQueen for 12 Years A Slave

Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street (narrowly over Ejiofor in 12 Years a Slave)

Best Actress: haven't seen Blue Jasmine, August:Osage County or Philomena. I have seen Amy Adams in American Hustle and Sandra Bullock in Gravity and I do not feel either performance would be worthy of an Oscar

Best Supporting Actor: Michael Fassbender in 12 Years a Slave

Best Supporting Actress: Lupita Nyong'o in 12 Years a Slave

Cinematography: Gravity

Costume Design: American Hustle

Film Editing: Gravity

Production Design: 12 Years a Slave

Visual Effects: Gravity

Best Adapted Screenplay: 12 Years a Slave

Best Original Screenplay: I've only seen American Hustle and would not vote for it

The other categories I either know nothing about or haven't seen the films

Of the nine (9) Best Picture nominees I saw five (5). I rated them the following:

12 Years a Slave 10/10
The Wolf of Wall Street 9/10
Captain Phillips 9/10
Gravity 9/10
American Hustle 6/10

Leo finally deserves his.

Also, I would be okay with Gravity winning some visual awards...but acting? No way. While I enjoyed that movie for what it was worth, I wouldn't watch it a 2nd time and I'd say it is the most overhyped movie of the past year.

I still have to see American Hustle, 12 Years, and Butler...I just read a lot of reviews that said the latter 2 feature a lot of white guilt, which is played out to me.

How so?

I'm guessing it felt like a bunch of good individual scenes that was not coherent as a linear narrative?

Hunger games was a great one also. Jennifer Lawrence is quickly becoming one of my favorite actresses of all time. Her personality is genuine, and her on stage persona is genius.
