Oscar Nominations Game: 12th Entrant: Cinemaniac Reviews

As some of you might remember, I recently announced that I’ll be holding a little competition to see who can correctly guess the most nominees for this year’s Academy Awards in the following categories: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Animated Film.  So far quite a few people have submitted their guesses, and one by one I’d like to share with you the predictions my fellow bloggers have made

Our tenth entrant comes from Alexander over at Cinemaniac Reviews.  His predictions were as follows:

Best Picture:

  • Argo
  • Beasts of the Southern Wild
  • Django Unchained
  • End of Watch
  • Les Misérables
  • Life of Pi
  • Lincoln
  • Zero Dark Thirty
  •  Amour
  • Silver Linings Playbook

Best Director:

  • Ang Lee – Life of Pi
  • Ben Affleck – Argo
  • Kathryn Bigelow – Zero Dark Thirty
  • Quentin Tarantino – Django Unchained
  • Tom Hooper – Les Misérables

 Best Actor:

  • Bradley Cooper – Silver Linings Playbook
  • Daniel Day-Lewis – Lincoln
  • Denzel Washington – Flight
  • Hugh Jackman – Les Misérables
  • Joaquin Phoenix – The Master

Best Actress:

  • Helen Mirren – Hitchcock
  • Jennifer Lawrence – Silver Linings Playbook
  • Jessica Chastain – Zero Dark Thirty
  • Quvenzhané Walls – Beasts of the Southern Wild
  • Sally Field – Lincoln

Best Supporting Actor:

  • Chris Tucker – Silver Linings Playbook
  • Daniel Huttlestone – Les Misérables
  • James D’Arcy – Hitchcock
  • Javier Bardem – Skyfall
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman – The Master

Best Supporting Actress:

  • Amy Adams – The Master
  • Anne Hathaway – Les Misérables
  • Maggie Smith – The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
  • Scarlett Johansson – Hitchcock
  • Tilda Swinton – Moonrise Kingdom

Best Adapted Screenplay:

  • Beasts of the Southern Wild
  • Cloud Atlas
  • Life of Pi
  • Lincoln
  • Silver Linings Playbook

Best Original Screenplay:

  • Argo
  • The Cabin in the Woods
  • Django Unchained
  • Moonrise Kingdom
  • Zero Dark Thirty

Best Animated Feature:

  • Brave
  • Frankenweenie
  • The Pirates! Band of Misfits
  • Rise of the Guardians
  • Wreck-It Ralph

As a quick note, Alexander is the only person to have broken the trend and picked The Pirates! instead of ParaNorman for the 5th slot in the Best animated feature category

Only 2.5 days left but I still encourage you all to send your guesses to me at aswinn92@live.com!

About r361n4

I'm a student at the University of Washington Majoring Business. I've always loved movies and my goal is to work on the financial side of the film industry. Until then though, I figure I'll spare my friends from my opinions and shout them from a digital mountaintop for anyone who's interested. After all, if a tree falls in a forest and nobody blogs about it, does it really happen?

    I’m personally hoping that Zero Dark Thirty will pick up an award – hopefully for best director for Kathryn Bigelow. Other than that, Silver Linings Playbook and Skyfall are my other favourites but have a feeling they will be overshadowed by other entries. Adele has to win best song…………..surely?

      I loved Skyfall too but the academy has a history of ignoring bond movies, so I have a feeling that’s going to continue 😦

      • Very true, Bond films often either don’t get nominated or are just ignored when it comes to the award. Shame because 50 years of Bond and iconic films are snubbed. Glad you liked Skyfall too 🙂
