  1. It’s a crime that Matthew McConaughey didn’t get nominated for his amazing performance in Mud. If there’s any justice he’ll win the gong for Dalla Buyers Club instead.

  2. Sally Dixon says:

    Best animation? Frozen ftw. Daylight second. Maybe daylight third as well.

  3. Will Gerard says:

    Gravity should win both best picture and best director but I have a feeling it won’t.

    And in best costume theres really only one movie that really shows it off properly. Surely Martin has to win for The Great Gatsby.
