Shay’s Academy Award Predicted Nominees


Who watches the Academy Awards every year with their eyes glued to the TV? In some families, including my own, watching the Oscars is an annual tradition. We always try to see all the nominated movies, at least for the “best picture” category. This year the predictions go as followed:

The Predicted Top 5:
1. Argo
2. Lincoln
3. Life of Pi
4. Silver Linings Playbook
5. Les Miserables

The Rest of the Top 10:
6. The Master
7. Beasts of the Southern Wild
8. Amour
9. Zero Dark Thirty

10. Hitchcock

Possible Spoilers:
11. Django Unchained
12. Promised Land
13. Moonrise Kingdom
14. Flight

Long Shots:
15. The Sessions
16. The Impossible
17. Cloud Atlas
18. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
19. Anna Karenina
20. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

There are many other predictions (like for best director, best actor, best original screenplay). If you are interested in viewing these, visit this link.

Wouldn’t it be fun to see the difference between the communities winners compared to the Academy’s  winners of the 2013 Oscars? That is the plan.

For the next few weeks the goal is to get a review for each movie above, and as it gets closer to the Oscars we, the community and the people, will create our own winners!

Each week there will be a review on at least one of the films listed to be nominated for best picture. You, as the reader, are welcome to submit your own reviews and comments- did you agree or disagree? When it comes closer to the 85th Academy Awards we will vote on our own winners!
Stay tuned for this week’s review!
