3rd Annual Death to Hollywood Oscar Giveaway Contest – Day 2

oscrHello readers and Hollywood players!

I see that “Gravity” and “12 Years a Slave” are the front-runners for Best Director according to your comments. I’ll add my 2 cents; I think Alfonso Cuaron will win Best Director for Gravity, but only because it won the Golden Globe. I didn’t see the movie, so I have no idea what the direction is like. I love David O. Russell and Martin Scorcese as directors, but I don’t think it’s gonna happen for them this year. Oh well, on to Best Actress….

1. Who is your Oscar prediction for Best Actress? 

Amy Adams – American Hustle





Cate Blanchett – Blue Jasmine




Sandra Bullock – Gravity




Judi Dench – Philomena





Meryl Streep – August: Osage County




By the way, I will tell you that I saw three of these performances; Amy Adams, Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep…and I think it’s going to be between Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep. From the commercials, it looks like Sandra Bullock does a good job of being scared in space, I have no idea about Judi Dench in Philomena,  and Amy Adams was decent enough in American Hustle, but the other two were just outstanding performances.  Meryl Streep is amazing every time and Cate Blanchett is truly great in Blue Jasmine, so we’ll see. I do think they should give Meryl Streep a permanent award of some kind.

2. Amy Adams showed a lot of boob in American Hustle (not nipple, just boob), and boobalthough it had an “R” rating, it wasn’t because of her boobs (it was for language and some violence).  However, showing the areola/nipple combo constitutes an “R” rating.  Why is that?



The Rules:

Each day there will be two Oscar-related questions. Post your answers in the comment section. Each comment is an entry into the giveaway. At the end of the week a winner will be chosen at random. The contest will conclude on Saturday 3/1. You get extra entries for posting Death to Hollywood on Facebook or Twitter, and “liking” the Death to Hollywood page on Facebook. The prize is always a surprise and Hollywood/Oscar related.

1. You have to be at least 18 years old to enter (that’s for legal reasons)

2. You have to live in the United States because I don’t ship internationally, sorry.

3. You have to answer two Oscar related questions as a comment on the blog.

4. It doesn’t matter if you’ve seen any of the nominated movies or if you get the questions right.

5. No purchase necessary (not that there’s anything to buy… legally I have to say it)


About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

    1. Cate Blanchett – Blue Jasmine
    2. MPAA is weird when it comes to nudity. Titanic is probably the most famous PG-13 movie with full boob nudity..

    Cate Blanchett = WOW! What a performance!

  3. Josephine says:

    Cate Blanchett. Fantastic.

    Women’s nipples are dangerous so we have to be careful to whom they are exposed. Really, I guess it is difficult to cover every bit of the boob constantly, and the nipple=naked.

    On the other hand, I was reading about sex in the movies the other day and some actress was talking about spending two hours in make-up (or whatever it would be called) to be fitted for a prosthetic vagina for the up close and very personal scenes. I was amused and kind of disgusted at the same time as well as thinking it was stupid. What rating does that get?

  4. Susie says:

    Cate Blanchett – like her, admire the performance. CANT STAND WOODY ALLEN, so that fact that heis film would benefit annoys me. Would like to see Amy Adams win cause I like her.

    Nipples – much ado about nothing…so what else is new

  5. Jimmy! says:

    1) On the British betting sites, Cate Blanchett is -3300 to win. That means you have to put up $33 to win $1 … that is what you call a huge favorite. Cate Blanchett all the way.

    2) I know nobody probably saw Amy Adams in the small indie film, “Junebug.” But I thought it was a real turn-on when she talked about meerkats. No, the way she talked. I’M NOT ATTRACTED TO MEERKATS! Oh, why do I even bother?

    But as far as boobs, you don’t want a movie pretending to be in the ’70s — you want one that is actually from the ’70s. I recommend:

    a) “Bobbie Joe and the Outlaw” (1976) — Lynda Carter sans Wonder Woman costume … thank you pause button.

    b) Up! (1976) — All of the Russ Meyer films are great — but I mention this one not for just the charms of the lovely Kitten Natividad … but to tell you that I got real excited when it seemed to be appearing on cable a few years ago since the film is relatively tough to see. I doubt I will ever say the phrase “Cartoon Lou Grant and Balloons!!! WTF!!!!” again.

    c)Howling II … Your Sister is a Werewolf (1985) — I know this is from the ’80s but you have to respect this movie for showing Sybil Danning’s topless scene 4,752 times during the end credits.
    Usually, you just figure out who the gaffer is.

    I think I’m going to go with Sandra Bullock, since that’s the only one of these movies I’ve seen. Having a kid really cuts down on movie time… That’s ok cause he’s cute.

    Areolas serve as a pedestal to the sacred nipple. When viewed together it creates a phenomenon known as “Wow, nipples” that makes people crazy.

  7. Kal says:

    1. Cate Blanchett is pretty much a lock. But if I were voting, it’d be Judi Dench.

    2. Now that any 10-year-old with computer access can download any pornographic image ever filmed, does a ‘R’ rating even matter anymore?
