Ugh. I'm torn on Best Picture this year. I still need to finish 3 of the movies on the list, but I've already chosen favorites such as Her and American Hustle.

As for the Actor/Actresses awards, this is the year DiCaprio finally wins an oscar. Amy Adams for Best Actress.

I'm going to go on out to finish the main films. Frozen and The Wind Rises look like the rivaling Animated Films this year. I haven't heard of Ernest and Celestine, but the trailer made it look promising so I will give it a look. I can't believe Pixar didn't get the nod by default. They did so well with Brave, which isn't even up to the standards of their legacy, imo.

Likewise, Greg. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran from The Hobbit: TDoS didn't get a nod in Original Song category.

I've seen 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, The Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle and Dallas Buyers Club.

Gravity wasn't that good in my opinion, it just wasn't my style of movie and seemed like it was made with the sole purpose of glorifying George Clooney and Sandra Bullock.

American Hustle was good, but I definitely wouldn't consider it Oscar worthy given the competition. Amy Adams could take the lead actress though, she was essentially the best part of the movie.

The Wolf of Wall Street was hilarious, but i felt that above everything else, it was a comedy. Great performances from Dicaprio and Hill, not sure It deserves the award though.

I'm stuck between Dallas Buyers Club and 12 Years a Slave. I'd go with 12 Years a Slave for best picture. Personally I think Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto could easily sweep best actor and supporting actor. Steve McQueen for directing.

That's really all I want to comment on.
