Yes, the end of my “7 Days of Oscars” is nearing it’s close. For some this might be a hard category. For me, it is the simplest one as I knew from the minute the film was over, who was going to be my pick of the year. And yes, deservedly so.


Bryan Cranston, Trumbo
Being a fan of Cranston, it’s a notable performance here, but the film went pretty unnoticed by most as it was about the infamous ‘blacklist’ and I think some just thought it had been done before.

Matt Damon, The Martian
This for me, was actually a really good dramady performance by Damon. He was funny, yet serious when he needed to be. But sorry Matt, it’s going to have to be another time. 🙂

Leonardo DiCaprio, The RevenantMY PICK/WINNER
Please pick up your Golden Man.. FINALLY Mr. DiCaprio. 😀

Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs
Good, strong job by one of my favourite actors here. Lot’s of dialogue but just didn’t hit it on the mark for me.

Eddie Redmayne, The Danish Girl
Last year’s winner and another good performance by Redmayne, but not of the Oscar caliber of last years so no..I don’t think Eddie’s doing a repeat.

And with that we are approaching Day 7 – The Final Day of “7 Days of Oscars” which will be of course, Best Picture. With that being said, I’m going to the Independent Spirit Awards tomorrow, Sat. the 27th, and instead of posting my BP picks, I’m just going to briefly address the Oscar controversy and save my last for the BIG DAY!! Cheers to you all until then..

**Reminder that I’m giving who I think the winner will be and what would be my pick – because yes, they just might not be the same!! 😀

  1. I honestly do not care who wins in this category because I was not big on either of the films nominated here, but as you know by my blog post, I did list alternatives and once again If I had to pick three people overlooked they would be Gerard Depardieu (Welcome to New York), Michael Fassbender (Macbeth) and Michael B. Jordan (Creed). Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

    1. So sorry John that all the Oscars & the nominees disapoint you so much this year. Again, I love pretty much everyone that’s nominated, ESPECIALLY this category where I wish they all could win truth be told. I hope maybe next year where there are new movies, you get a chance to see them all, incl. Foreign Films & Documentaries so as to be able to judge them also, and maybe they will add in some of the people you feel as though were overlooked this year and like the nominees & therefore the Oscars better this year. 🙂 Right now, I’m just looking forward to Sunday!!! #whooohoooo

  2. I’m so looking forward to Oscar night even because at least this year, for once, it’s kind of an open race with many exciting possibilities in most races. LEO!!! Glad you liked his performance too, I just don’t see how some can complain that it’s underwhelming.
