OSCAR COUNTDOWN: BEST DIRECTOR

Standard

oscars 2015 2

Another day ~ Another Oscar countdown category

BEST DIRECTOR:

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
“Foxcatcher”
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
“Birdman”
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
“Boyhood”
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.

    • 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!
