It’s Oscar night! And here are my predictions for the big 5:
Best Picture: Gravity
Best Actor: Matthew McConaughey (but also a nod to DiCaprio as a potential upset)
Best Actress: Cate Blanchett (it’s her year. There can be only one)
Best Supporting Actor: Barkhad Abdi (sensational newcomer)
Best Supporting Actress: Lupita Nyong’o (or Jennifer Lawrence, the hottest girl in Hollywood right now)
I’m told the smart money is on 12 Years a Slave for Best Picture. But Gravity represents Hollywood’s fascination with technology. Could there be a surprise – visual effects over bleak storytelling?
