With Oscar Sunday on March 2, 2014, Hollywood is buzzing with 9 Best Picture candidates. To help you with your Oscar Polls, below are our favorites, in order of priority. Our top 4 picks are “12 Years a Slave,” “Dallas Buyers Club”, “Captain Phillips” and “Her”. We love “Her”! Who do you think will take home the gold?
1. 12 Years a Slave – “12 Years a Slave” is by far the Best Picture of the year IMHO. The masterpiece has great depth, and is based on a true story that will make you think deeply about US history. We were fortunate to hear Chiwetel Ejiofor (Solomon Northup), Lupita Nyong’o (Patsey) and Director Steve McQueen during an Oscar Screening Q&A hosted by The Wrap that you can watch in our Q&A VIDEO: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lupita Nyong’o, Steve McQueen. Chiwetel won at the BAFTA Awards, and Lupita won top honors at the SAG Awards.
