Saturday, I met up with my sister and movie friends to watch the last five of the nine best picture Oscar nominated films. Unfortunately, I did not get to see Gravity. The ice and sleet began in OKC and I preferred to drive home before it became worse.
Here is my reviews I tweeted after each film:
Nebraska is a story of elderly parents & their adult children. Quirky, hilarious, and so full of heart! #AMCBPS
Captain Phillips is a breathtaking, adrenaline rush. I’ll be having pirate nightmares from here on out, thankyouverymuch. #AMCBPS
Her: relationships between humans and computers just got incredibly awkward. Consider it a warning. #AMCBPS
American Hustle: Con artists and their craft at their finest. #AMCBPS
My predictions for the Oscars (In all honesty, these could totally change by the time I fill out the Oscar ballot this evening.)
Best Picture: 12 Years a Slave (Every movie this year were such strong films. I am torn between 12 Years, American Hustle, and Dallas Buyers Club.)
Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio, The Wolf of Wall Street (This was a tough choice, every actor absolutely owned their role. I am haunted by Chiwetel Ejiofor’s performance in 12 Years a Slave.)
Best Actress: Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine
Best Supporting Actor: Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club
Best Supporting Actress: June Squibb, Nebraska
Best Director: David O. Russell, American Hustle
