19 Oscar Contenders I’m Rooting For In This Year’s Awards Race

  • 0

With the Oscar race starting to shape up, we’re already seeing some surefire locks (like Gravity) and some movies that didn’t pan out so well (the Naomi Watts-vehicle Diana). Aside from my never-gonna-happen dream nomination for the on-point Scarlett Johansson in Don Jon, I have some Oscar hopefuls on my Christmas wish list this year. Between the sure things (#1, #8) and the long-shots (#7, #10), here are some folks I’d like to see recognized come March.

1. 12 Years A Slave: Best Picture

It’s not just that I want 12 Years a Slave to win Best Picture. I want it to win just about everything its nominated for, even winning in categories for which its not eligible. Best Animated Film? Check. We can even make up new categories. Best Antebellum Beard? Brad Pitt, Winner. Best Reminder That Sarah Paulson is also in American Horror Story? Gold. Best Use of Alfre Woodard? Fucking landslide.

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla
