In most years, the Academy likes to pair up the Best Picture and Best Director trophies in sync. After all, how can a movie be the best picture of the year if the director didn’t do the best job making it? Will that be the case again this year, or will voters separate the categories?
A lot of our readers think that ‘Gravity’ will win Best Picture. I’m not so confident of that. However, I do believe that Alfonso Cuaron will be rewarded for the technical achievement of making the film. Do you agree, or will ’12 Years a Slave’ sweep both awards?
Josh’s prediction: Alfonso Cuaron.
