Oscar race-2014

Once again, we struggle to come to terms with the concept of yet another year vanishing into the ether, but it’s relentlessly closing in on us. That realization leads me to consider the likely Oscar contenders who will be lauded in early 2014. My nominee picks are:

Fruitvale Station – Best Picture, Actor( Michael B. Jordan), Director

Captain Phillips- Best Picture, Actor (Tom Hanks), Director

Blue Jasmine – Best Actress – (Cate Blanchett)

Prisoners -Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor (Hugh Jackman & Jake Gyllenhaal)

Mud -Best Picture, Best Actor? (Matthew McConaughey?)

Dallas Buyers Club Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor (Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto)

I’m pretty sure it will be some permutation of that line-up. I’m not sure whether Matthew McConaughey will be nominated for Mud or Dallas Buyers Club, although it more likely the latter. I’m less sure of the actress nominees, except Cate Blanchett, who totally owns Blue Jasmine.  Judi Dench may get a nomination for Philomena;however. Another dark horse could be the young Sophie Nélisse
