2015 ACADEMY AWARDS PICK 'EM POOL

Recommended Posts

I guess no best director for Wes. GPH seems to be doing very well in all these other categories, usually sort of balances out the loss in the one 'big' category.

Screenplay categories next!!!

UNLESS...there's a huge Grand Budapest Hotel upset brewing?

Well, so much for that idea. Birdman's screenplay win doesn't bode well for Grand Budapest Hotel winning Best Picture. Probably between Birdman and Boyhood now.

Best Original Screenplay - tough category.

"Birdman" plot really reminds me of the Pacino film "The Humbling" (by the way, the imdb.com description hardly sounds like what the film is really about. That description is what happens in the movie - big difference!)

Some of the best screenplays to read are Woody Allen's - art in and of itself.

Watching the Lakers with hookers and blow?

I wish we had a "like" button on this site :)

I can't stand IMDB...all of their plot descriptions blow.

I have two volumes of Woody's collected screenplays. Great reading.

I never really understand fully how a movie can win one of best director/picture but not the other. It stands to reason that if it was the best directed, then it is the best movie, no?

Disappointed that Richard Linklater - Boyhood did not win Best Director.

Starting to wish I had changed the channel.

Those damn Brits! Congratulations Eddie Redmayne. Still wish Keaton had won it...time's running out for him.

I LOVE Cate Blanchett!!! She delivers a gem of a performance in every role. Deserving Oscar for Blue Jasmine's echo of Blanche DuBois. Just amazing.

EDDIE REDMAYNE!!! Now that's genuine joy, so happy for him!

I liked Birdman a lot so I won't complain about it winning. Finished 12-12 on my ballot. My worst year in ages...which is what I suspected would happen in a hard to predict year. Really, only JK Simmons and Patricia Arquette were the real locks of the night. Most everything else was up for grabs.
