It’s that time of year again, the biggest awards show of the year is upon us. 2013 brought some of the best movies I have ever seen and there are many worthy nominees this year. For the first time, I have not only seen every movie nominated for Best Picture and Best Director, but also all the movies with acting nominees. These are my picks, who I would give the awards to if it was only up to me. As I point out below, some of them are different that who is expected to win, but I make sure to explain why. With that cleared up, I present my 2014 Oscar predictions.
Director Alexander Payne returns to his midwest roots with a stunning tale of an old man going on a journey, Nebraska. Starring Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb, Stacy Keach and Bob Odenkirk, Nebraska follows a father and son who travel from Montana to Nebraska to claim a million dollar prize. Watch the trailer after the jump and then read my review.
