The 86th Annual Academy Awards

The 86th Academy Awards begin tonight at 7:30 ET.

The Nominees

Sure, it's a lot of politics, but I still enjoy watching them. So here's our thread for our running commentary, rage at snubs, and smug satisfaction at our correct guesses.

Re: The 86th Annual Academy Awards

My predictions for the top categories:

Best Picture - 12 Years a Slave (close race with American Hustle and Gravity)

Best Director - Alfonso Cuarón for Gravity

Best Actor - Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club

Best Actress - Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine (if the Woody Allen scandal damages her chances enough it could go to Amy Adams for American Hustle)

Best Supporting Actor - Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club

Best Supporting Actress - Lupita Nyong'o for 12 Years a Slave (close race with Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle)

Re: The 86th Annual Academy Awards

Everyone is saying that Jared Leto will win Best Supporting Actor. I can't comment on that since I haven't seen Dallas Buyers Club.

My pick is Barkhad Abdi. He absolutely blew me away when I saw Captain Phillips and going from cab driver to Academy Award winning actor would really be something.

Here's an interesting article about him…

Barkhad Abdi, the Oscar-nominated actor from Captain Phillips, has revealed that he is broke despite being in the running for the gold this evening.

The 28-year-old actor earned $65,000 for his performance in the film, but that was two years ago and he has not acted in a movie since then. After wrapping his work on Captain Phillips, Barkhad went to work at his brother’s mobile phone store in Minneapolis, but he quit when the movie was released.

Re: The 86th Annual Academy Awards

I watched Gravity last night, and all I can say is that Sandra deserves the Oscar, should she get it.

Pharell's hat looks more normal size to me. If it a smaller one or am I just acclimating to it?

Re: The 86th Annual Academy Awards

Well, I'm 1/1 so far. Leto seemed a sure thing.

I'm really glad that we'll be seeing all of the Original Song nominees performed again this year. I've missed that.

You'd think Disney's ABC would have Ford come out to the Star Wars theme.

EDIT: Could he be more facetious?
