10 thoughts on...Oscar season 2015

  1. How good is it that the Julianne Moore celebration has become a reality?!
  2. If I was responsible for selecting the winners this would have been a season focused on Boyhood but it is refreshing that we have a race for Best Picture that feels wide open. Or at least less predictable than usual...I still think (and hope) Boyhood will take the top prize but wouldn't be surprised if Birdman was to beat it. Or if The Grand Budapest Hotel swept the board.
  3. It's a shame Ralph Fiennes wasn't nominated for Best Actor.
  4. I have shamefully not watched much of the awards ceremonies themselves.
  5. It can't be possible that Eddie Redmayne will win Best Actor, right?!
  6. When will Amy Poehler and Tina Fey be invited to host the Oscars?
  7. It's too much to wish that Dick Pope wins Best Cinematography for Mr. Turner?
  8. I now like Felicity Jones.
  9. 2014 wasn't a great year for film. And the award season seemed to ignore some of the better ones (Nightcrawler, Under the Skin). Boo.
  10. I am less excited than usual. Hence a decrease in the amount of blog posts. Sorry.
