Today the HFPA will announce their winners but later this week on Thursday the Academy Awards will declare this year’s Oscar nominees on Thursday. So it’s a good time to ask what film would you like to see nominated at this year’s Academy Awards?
While I’m sure some movies will undoubtedly be nominated (12 Years A Slave, Gravity), I’m scared that the Oscars will ignore Inside Llewyn Davis completely since it received no attention from the guild awards. If I had my way, Inside Llwyn Davis would be nominated for (in the major categories) for Best Picture, Director, Actor (Oscar Isaac), and Original Screenplay. I would also love to see Matthew McConaughey be nominated for his role in Mud. While Mud was not a perfect film, McConaughey’s performance was one of the strongest I’ve seen all year and I’m sure it will be overlooked by the Academy.
But what about yourself?
