Yesterday, you made your predictions for which movie would win Best Picture at this Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony. Today, let’s go through some of the other major categories, starting with Best Actor. Is Matthew McConaughey a lock to take home the trophy, or will Christian Bale, Bruce Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio or Chiwetel Ejiofor claim victory instead?
In today’s polls, we’re only looking for you to predict how the Academy members will actually vote, regardless of which movie or performance you personally liked best. Be sure to tell us your thoughts on that in the Comments afterward.
McConaughey sure seems to have the momentum going into this. He’s had a hell of a career renaissance over the last couple of years, and I think the Academy is ready to acknowledge that. Plus, Oscar voters love it when actors lose and/or gain a lot of weight to transform themselves physically for a role.
Josh’s prediction: Matthew McConaughey. All right, all right, all right…
