Oscar Worthy

Author: cheyenne


It’s that time of year again to roll out the Hollywood red carpet, pop some popcorn or champagne, and start the bets. The 86th Academy Awards hosted by Ellen DeGeneres premieres this Sunday. And if Leo DiCaprio doesn’t take home his first Oscar, I’m sure there will be a riot. So, who will take home the trophies?

According to The Credits, predictions have been made for every award category. The Social Awards App has been used to track and analyze predictions of critics and audiences alike. For best actress, Cate Blanchett is pulling the majority in for her role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. For Harvey Wienstein’s Philomena, actress Dame Judi Dench is Blanchett’s closest competitor. For best actor, Leonardo DiCaprio is in the lead along with the buzz around Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street. His closest competitor is Matthew McConaughey from Jean-Marc Vallée’s Dallas Buyers Club. Tom O’Neil of GoldDerby.com, where Oscar experts make predictions, states that Leo’s advantage of being overdue for an Oscar along with his best performance of his career put him in the lead. But McConaughey has been receiving positive acclaims through his role on HBO’s True Detective.

We’re already well into 2013, (which is scary) and there are loads of new, exciting films that are being released within the next few months. There’s some obvious ones that we’re stoked about, and some…  not so obvious ones. A ton of sequels, a few remakes and more. Check out our picks below and watch the trailers if you haven’t already!

The Great Gatsby - Leonardo DiCaprio AND directed by Baz Luhrmann. This is going to be one extravagant depiction of the roaring 20’s, as it should be.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Read all 3 books in about a week and it’s killing me that I have to wait all the way until November for this to be released.

Ender’s Game

Kick Ass 2
The Way Way Back

Monsters University - Pixar follow up to Monsters Inc with Billy Crystal & John Goodman!
Anchorman: The Legend Continues - Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, again… enough said!
The Hobbit: The The Desolation of Smaug - More 3D 48fps from Peter Jackson?  Why yes, I think so.
Star Trek Into Darkness - J.J. Abrams brings back the cast of the Enterprise including a young Captain Kirk.

Having paid my dues with the rest of the film students, I’m no stranger to the crowd-funding phenomenon known as Kickstarter. However, I’m used to it gathering backing for the most recent and “creative” post-apocalyptic student film trying to “make it” in the independent film festival circuit, not a big name from television/Hollywood. Thus begins an intriguing turn of events for the advent of crowdfunding and the (once) overlooked power it possesses. 

I thought it was truly extraordinary when the Veronica Mars film gained 100% backing via Kickstarter in just over a day, but now we have Zach Braff embarking on the same tremendous crowd-funding voyage we witnessed in tech news just a couple months ago. Yes. Zach Braff of Scrubs and Garden State Fame has already garnered $1.6 million of the $2 million budget total with 28 days to go.
