    After reading all of Peter Knegt's choices, especially the "who should be here" addenda, I'm surprised that in the categories of Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress he didn't nominate "Any woman who might have appeared in 'Inside Llewyn Davis'."

    Mr. Knegt, are you a 1960s Greenwich Village folksinger who missed the brass ring?

    What are the chances of a write-in campaign for Hobbit or for Riddick to win best picture? Thought Hobbit & Peter Jackson got snubbed after the first Habbit as well as Jack Reacher.

  • Allison | February 19, 2014 12:01 PMReply

    Blue Is the Warmest Color was not only the best foreign film this year, but just the best film. Period. Can't believe that the Academy completely failed to recognize it. Major robbery, Adele Exarchoupolos gave easily the most moving performance besides Cate Blanchett.

  • Ollie D | February 27, 2014 6:24 PM

    Allison: they didn't ignore it. The production company decided to delay it's American release. Thus, it was ineligible for this year's Oscars. It will be nominated next year and it will likely be the favorite to win.

  • nicolette | February 26, 2014 10:06 PM

    completely agree!!

  • Bradley | February 20, 2014 8:21 PM

    it wasn't eligible this year. It's country can enter it next year.

    Updated early picks for 2015 Oscars:
    Best Picture:
    X-Men Days of Future Past-Of all the Marvel movies, this looks like The Dark Knight of those movies.

    Noah-A biblical film by Darren Arronofsky (Black Swan and Requiem For a Dream)

    Exodus-I know Ridley Scott sometimes makes good movies (Gladiator, Matchstick Men, Alien which is overrated, Thelma and Louise, American Gangster, Prometheus which is also overrated and Black Hawk Down) and some bad ones (Robin Hood, White Squall, Hannibal, The Counselor) but I believe this one will be good.

    Into the Woods- Could be Disney's Les Miserables, it's also from the director of Chicago, and it has Meryl Streep

    The Fault in Our Stars- A girl with a disease? Oscar bait, but it looks good

    Transcendence-Directed by Christopher Nolan's cinematographer

    Jersey Boys-Clint Eastwood directing a biopic about a 60's pop band

    Big Eyes-Tim Burton's first biography film

    Get On Up-Directed by the man who brought us The Help with the return of its cast

    Struggle with the Light- A biography on Winston Churchill

    Heaven is For Real- A religious film directed by the writer of Braveheart that looks Sixth Sense-ish.

    Foxcatcher- a film directed by Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball)

    Gone Girl-How could you go wrong with a guy like David Fincher

    Interstellar-Christopher Nolan, nuff said (But they better give him a Best Director nod)

    Paddington-I could tell they're making the beloved bear into an Oscar film

    The Giver-It's got Meryl Streep

    Unbroken-A war film directed by Angelina Jolie and written by the Coen Brothers already screams Oscar

    The Cobbler-You have Adam Sandler as a lonely man in New York, that plot does sound Oscar bait, even for a Sandler film

    Inherent Vice-When you have Paul Thomas Anderson, it screams Oscar.

    Million Dollar Arm-A sports biography that looks really good

    Draft Day-Ivan Reitman's first sports drama? Let's see how it turns out

    McFarland-Another sports film with Kevin Costner

    Child 44-A movie about child murder? Damn that sounds rough

    Fury-A WW2 film that could be better than Monuments Men

    A Most Wanted Man-Almost every film Phillip Seymour Hoffman is in gets Oscar attention (R.I.P. man)

    Hobbit 3-This could be the one Hobbit movie that'll be the best of the trilogy

    Love is Strange-Another film about gays, *ugh*

    The Judge-A murder mystery with Robert Duvall

    Grace of Monaco-A biography about Grace Kelly

    The Immigrant-Looks pretty artsy like Moulin Rouge

    Serena-Is every movie with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper gonna get nominated?

    Boyhood-A movie about a lonely child

    If I Stay- A movie about a girl in a coma is Oscar bait enough

    Annie-Another Annie movie, but with an african american cast, plus Cameron Diaz

    Personally, I don't see the big deal about "American Hustle;" it's pretty sloppy for a David O. Russell film and it has nothing on "Silver Linings Playbook." Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper's performances were the only two parts of the movie that I think are Oscar-worthy.

  • Peter Largren | February 10, 2014 9:16 PMReply

    I actually could see all of this being correct, but I don't know if 12 Years will win best supporting actress and best adapted screenplay because I feel like Hustle will (but shouldn't) take a few awards home.

    12 Years a Slave may win big. Also the most interesting I think might be Alfonso Cuaron vs. Steve McQueen.

    It seems that American Hustle won a lot of Golden Globes including Best Comedy or Musical, I hope it wins Best Picture because that was the best movie I've seen in 2013, in fact I hope Amy Adams wins too, I want this to be her first win!

    Adam Sandler could be nominated for The Cobbler judging by a type of character he's playing, and wouldn't it be neat to say Academy Award Nominee Adam Sandler?

  • kami | January 12, 2014 8:42 AM

    adam sandler and arnold and jonn hamm and x-men actors have zero chance at the oscar. but you dont have to forget some other underdog and fresh faces who are oscar material like
    Jack O'Connell for Unbroken (Play a real life character)

    Chadwick Boseman for Get On Up (Playing james brown)

  • ben | January 10, 2014 4:24 PM

    Great list!
    Hope really Matthew McConaughey will win (but I doubt it). Of course Chiwetel Ejiofor was great and very convincing but I really prefer Matthew.
    Don't know if I'd prefer Leto oder Fassbender to win - hope for a tie.
    Cate and Lupita should win it without question in my opinion.

    You've got to be kidding me....."Gravity" was horrible, "12 Slaves" was just another 'poor me' pseudo-doc and "Captain Phil" was a fictionalized account of a true story.....If the author is correct in his projection then it accurately shows the decline in today's movie-making.....My choice for overall top quality (story, acting, cinematography, costuming, directing and sound? - "Saving Mr. Banks."

    Academy, it's time. Even though the Best Actor race is going to be crowded (as it usually is), Leonardo definitely deserves a nomination for Wolf of Wall Street. I don't know if he should win (I haven't seen all the actors' performances in consideration), but at least nominate him.

    RUSH is my favourite film of the year and i'm really glad Golden globes acknowledged it I hope the academy does. I haven't seen Fassbender in '12 years' or Jonah in "Wolf of Wall st" but I really hope Daniel Bruhl secures the best supporting actor award because of his magnificent perfomance (he was better than Hanks in Mr.Banks and Abdi in C.Phillips anyway). and i really hope Bale wins his second oscar for lead actor.

    Since we're getting close to 2014 I thought I'd talk about next year's films for 2015 Oscars:

    X-Men Days of Future Past-Out of all the Marvel movies, this looks like The Dark Knight of those movies and I also think Patrick Stewart needs a nod

    Big Eyes-What?! Tim Burton directing... A BIOGRAPHY?! With Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams?! I'm in!!

    Fury-A WW2 film with Brad Pitt! Only problem...Shia Labeouf is in it

    Monuments Men-WW2 film by George Clooney

    Noah-Darran Aranofsky's version of Noah with a promising Cast

    Exodus-Another Moses film but this time it's by Ridley Scott and anything with Christian Bale is sure to succeed (Sweet! Two biblical films coming out next year!)

    Winter's Tale-The writer of A Beautiful Mind is now directing! Plus Colin Farrell, Jennifer Connelly, Russell Crowe, William Hurt, and Will Smith...as a judge *snickers*

    Grand Budabest Hotel-Wes Anderson nuff said

    Grace of Monaco- Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly? Sounds promising

    Draft Day-Ivan Reitman is fantastic at mixing comedy and drama together? But he's doing a movie that's all out drama which is based on a true story and features Kevin Costner, Ellen Burstyn, Sam Elliot, Denis Leary, Jennifer Garner, and Frank Langella (gee haven't seen him in an Ivan Reitman film yet!)

    Heaven is for Real-Randall Wallace directing a movie about Heaven with Greg Kinnear? We shall see

    Million Dollar Arm-A biography sports drama by Disney, plus Alan Arkin

    Jersey Boys-Clint Eastwood directing a biography about Four Seasons...with Christohper Walken who could be up for another Supporting Actor nomination

    The Hundred Foot Journey-Oprah producing a film about two rival restaurants with Helen Mirren? Okay

    The Giver- A drama based on a novel that's set in a forest in South Africa with Jeff Bridgers and Meryl Streep...that sound's promis--oh wait...this also has Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift...well let's see how it looks next year

    Gone Girl-Okay anything by David Fincher is sure to get nominated...only trouble I read about this movie is that Tyler Perry is in it

    The Judge-Courtroom Dramas usually get nominated especially when you have Robert Duvall in it

    Interstellar-CHRISTOPHER NOLAN!!!! That is all

    McFarland-Yet another Biography sports film with Costner

    Paddington-Any movie that has Colin Firth as the main star is sure to get nominated

    Annie-Yep...another Annie film, but the girl from Beasts of the Southern Wild is in it and so is Jamie Foxx, this could be an Annie film that's worth a look

    Into the Woods- Could be Disney's version of Les Miserables featuring Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp

    Unbroken- A war film written by the Coen Brothers and directed by Angelina Jolie (who is a decent director by the way)

    Jamesy Boy-Yeah it might get overlooked seeing how it will be released on January, but we'll see, it's also a crime film based on a true story, and it has one of my favorite actors: James Woods, yeah we all know how a movie with him turns up nowadays but maybe this one will be lucky

  • Brett | December 5, 2013 5:23 PM

    Imagine- Judging by how the story sounds Al Pacino could get a Best Actor nomination since we haven't seen him at the Academy in a while since his win in 1993

  • Brett | December 3, 2013 4:59 PM

    Forgot a couple more things:

    Foxcatcher-Steve Carrell in a serious role? In a movie by the director of Capote and Moneyball?

    Blended-Maybe just...maybe this could be Sandler's big comeback, he's reuniting with Drew Barrymore and they were both in two good movies

  • Brett | December 3, 2013 2:53 PM

    Oh yeah, forgot about that

    What of Serena by Susanne Bier feat. Jennifer lawrence, Bradley Cooper? ??

    I think Jennifer Lawrence should be nominated for Catching Fire, she was absolutely fantastic in that movie. Jennifer showed so much emotion and made you believe every single issue her character was going through. Fantastic.

  • HI | December 10, 2013 9:16 PM

    Her performance in Catching Fire was MUCH better than her performance in American Hustle...by a lot.

  • Kay | December 2, 2013 4:59 AM

    I agree. She was amazing. But the Academy would prefer to nominate her for her standout supporting performance in American Hustle I think. I am sure shez getting a third nom this year.

    Pls watch the hunger games : catching fire ! It's prone to get about 4 nominations ! They're s good contender , better than the hobbit in my opinion !

  • Justin | December 1, 2013 12:32 AM

    A buddy if mine has already seen it at some special screening I had no idea of !
    But seriously recommend catching fire to any kind of audience out there ! :)

  • Michael | November 29, 2013 9:18 AM

    How can you say its better than hobbit if the hobbit is not even out yet? :D

  • Lanse | November 27, 2013 12:53 AMReply

    If Tye Sheridan doesn't get nominated for his role in "Mud" it'll be a total snub. He was outstanding .

  • Kate | November 18, 2013 10:11 PMReply

    just saw Dallas Buyers Club today. it's going to be raining Oscars for Matthew McCaughney and Jared Leto (maybe, definitely nominated for sure)

  • George Faraway | November 15, 2013 1:18 AMReply

    I agree that "Younger Every Day" was a great song from the movie 3 Geezers! The movie didnt do well at box office in limited release, but I wonder if they have the guts to nominate that song anyways. It should be at least nominated.

    La Danza de la Realidad for Best Film!
