Hello Hollywood players and hopeful winners!
First, I want to thank you all for entertaining me with your comments and predictions. According to your comments, the Best Actor is up for grabs, along with Best Supporting Actor and Actress. I think it’s going to be a good show this year, at least it better be, because every year I get so excited, a little drunk, and then it’s boring! The red carpet arrivals are my favorite part because it gives you enough time to really judge everyone properly, the clothes, the hair, and listen to the interviewers ask the celebrities stupid questions.
Today’s category is for Best Original Screenplay. This category is important because it is the movie writer’s idea and the movie writer’s story, as opposed to Adapted Screenplay, where they get the story from a book or somewhere. That also takes great writing talent, but I like this category better. And most importantly, any good movie starts with good writing. So here we go…..
1.Who is your Oscar prediction for Best Original Screenplay?
American Hustle – Eric Warren Singer and David O. Russell
Blue Jasmine – Woody Allen
Dallas Buyers Club – Craig Borten and Melisa Wallick
Her – Spike Jonze
Nebraska – Bob Nelson
My 2 cents: American Hustle was good, but I didn’t think the story was all that compelling. I always love Woody Allen’s writing but I liked Midnight in Paris better, so I don’t think he’ll win for this one. Dallas Buyers Club is a definite contender in my opinion. I didn’t see Her, although I want to and I usually like Spike Jonze, so if this wins, I’m okay with that. And I didn’t see Nebraska, so I don’t have an opinion on this one.
I’ll tell you what I do have an opinion on; BEST ORIGINAL SONG!
If Pharrell Williams doesn’t win for the song “Happy”, I’m not going to be happy! If you haven’t heard it….
