oscars 2015 2

Another day ~ Another Oscar countdown category


Morten Tyldum
“The Imitation Game”
While I loved this movie and it’s in my top 3 of the year, Morten is just not my pick this time around.

Bennett Miller
Having seen this with Bennett & Steve Carell at a Q & A and Bennett just was well..not the most pleasant of people I’ve ever met.. and the film had good performances but wasn’t great. Not my pick.
best director
Alejandro González Iñárritu
From the 1st time I saw this film, to the 3rd time I saw it with Keaton & Inarritu doing the Q & A, I’ve loved it. Just a brilliant, brilliant film.

Richard Linklater
An average movie with a brilliant idea behind it – which is what I think people are mixing together. And I’m a Linklater fan and again, the idea was his and it’s good..I just wish the film was better.

Wes Anderson
“The Grand Budapest Hotel”
When I first saw this was back at the beginning of 2014, I loved it. Still do.. I won’t be mad if Wes wins this.

My Pick: Alejandro Inarritu
Will Win: Alejandro Inarritu
Possible Win: Wes Anderson


  1. Yeah, Birdman’s picking up steam, and especially after the DGAs, it looks like Inarritu will take it home. I would be happy with him, Linklater, or Anderson, although a glaring omission is David Fincher for Gone Girl. Grrr, Academy.

    1. hahahaha I like Fincher.. but I get it..on him not being nominated. The other movies were just too good.. 🙂 Linklater might, because of the idea behind Boyhood..again..average film for me..brilliant idea.. But I’m all for Alejandro here! 🙂 And I won’t be mad if Anderson wins!! ha!

      1. I won’t be mad if Alejandro wins, for sure! I just think that Fincher was better than Tyldum and Miller. Imitation Game and Foxcatcher both had their strengths (performances, mainly), but I don’t think the directing was one of them.

  2. I have a sneaking suspicion Wes Anderson might snag this one, even if Boyhood or Birdman win BP. Anderson’s work on Budapest Hotel was sublime.
