[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]While the Oscars may be the home of terrible hosts and snooty celebrities, it continues to be a prevalent topic in our everyday lives. And with each passing year, the movies seem to get bigger and better. Regardless of if you haven’t seen all the nominees, here’s our handy prediction for the 2015 Oscar’s.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Best Picture: “Birdman“” title_align=”separator_align_left”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI2NDAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjIzOTAlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbSUyRmVtYmVkJTJGdUpmTG9FNmhhbmMlMjIlMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRCUyMjAlMjIlMjBhbGxvd2Z1bGxzY3JlZW4lM0UlM0MlMkZpZnJhbWUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Almost like the #TBT of the Oscars, “Birdman” follows a washed-up actor on his journey to try and prove that he’s still “got it.” It’s artsy, beautiful and touching, while keeping an element of dark humor in there. It’s a movie that breaks boundaries, while giving us a good dose of family affairs.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Best Actor: Eddie Redmayne for “The Theory of Everything”” title_align=”separator_align_left”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI2NDAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjIzOTAlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbSUyRmVtYmVkJTJGU2Fsejd1R3A3MmMlMjIlMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRCUyMjAlMjIlMjBhbGxvd2Z1bGxzY3JlZW4lM0UlM0MlMkZpZnJhbWUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]A newcomer in the acting world, Redmayne truly embodies this role like no other. He tells the bittersweet life story of Stephen Hawking, before and after his diagnosis. It’s absolutely groundbreaking how this perfectly normal man plays a genius with ALS, while emoting feelings of jubilance and agony. It’ll be an outright robbery if he doesn’t win.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Best Actress: Julianne Moore for “Still Alice”” title_align=”separator_align_left”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI2NDAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjIzOTAlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbSUyRmVtYmVkJTJGWnJYclo1aWlSMG8lMjIlMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRCUyMjAlMjIlMjBhbGxvd2Z1bGxzY3JlZW4lM0UlM0MlMkZpZnJhbWUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Similar to Eddie Redmayne, Moore plays a woman falling down the degrading spiral of dementia while in her fifties. It’s heartbreaking seeing Moore slowly unravel and detach from the world as her memory fades. She’s expressive and equally inexpressive, giving this movie an Academy Award seal of approval.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Best Supporting Actor: J.K. Simmons for “Whiplash” ” title_align=”separator_align_left”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI2NDAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjIzOTAlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbSUyRmVtYmVkJTJGN2RfalF5Y2RRR28lMjIlMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRCUyMjAlMjIlMjBhbGxvd2Z1bGxzY3JlZW4lM0UlM0MlMkZpZnJhbWUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]J.K. Simmons was the actor that everyone has seen, but no one knew his name, so this recognition is long overdue. Instead of playing the typical supportive music teacher role, he takes on the role of an explosive, alcoholic teacher and rocks it. His role just adds an extra element of intensity we often don’t see.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette for “Boyhood” ” title_align=”separator_align_left”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI2NDAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjIzOTAlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbSUyRmVtYmVkJTJGWTBvWDB4aXdPdjglMjIlMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRCUyMjAlMjIlMjBhbGxvd2Z1bGxzY3JlZW4lM0UlM0MlMkZpZnJhbWUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Almost a forgotten character, Arquette beautifully embodies motherhood. It seems like a simple role to fill, but the undoubtable connection the audience will share with Arquette is undefinable. She takes a backseat to child actor Ellar Coltane, highlighting the changes he goes through year after year. But the audience seems to share a secret with Arquette: She is the true star of the movie.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Best Director: Richard Linklater for “Boyhood”” title_align=”separator_align_left”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI2NDAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjIzOTAlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbSUyRmVtYmVkJTJGWTBvWDB4aXdPdjglMjIlMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRCUyMjAlMjIlMjBhbGxvd2Z1bGxzY3JlZW4lM0UlM0MlMkZpZnJhbWUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Richard Linklater seemed to soar with the release of “Boyhood.” Already award-winning, this movie features the absolutely innovative idea of filming the movie over the course of ten years, recounting the events that changes a boy into a man. The mere production of this movie puts it above the rest, as well as the talent of the actors. Linklater’s heart and soul was put into this movie and it shows.
