Who ya got? Here are my predictions for the major categories: Best Picture: Boyhood Best Director: Richard Linklater - Boyhood (Inarritu a close 2nd for "Birdman") Best Actor: Michael Keaton - Birdman Best Actress: Julianna Moore - Still Alice Best Supporting Actor: J.K. Simmons - Whiplash Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette - Boyhood I was able to see 5 of the 8 Best Picture nominees this year. Whiplash and Boyhood were my favorites, followed by American Sniper and Grand Budapest Hotel, with Theory of Everything (while still good) being my least favorite of the 5. Hoping to catch the other 3 sometime soon. I've heard very good things about Birdman and The Imitation Game.
