Marcey’s 2014 Oscar Predictions


Every year here at we love to get involved with the Oscars, we dedicate two podcast episodes to the award ceremony and usually have a post or two about them.

This year I have decided to place my predictions down, something to wet your appetite while we organise our Pre-Oscar podcast.

This list is simply what I think will take the award home, not what I actually want to win (you’ll need to tune in to the future podcast for that.). I have included the bigger categories and keeping it simple. For each category the one that is underlined and italic is my pick.

And here we goooo …

  1. Excellent choices all, but I would guess the Globes are right this year and we’re looking at a repeat of Argo/Pi from 2013. Best Director to Gravity, Best Picture to 12 Years A Slave. The only lock is Cate Blanchett. Then again, Ben Affleck probably would have won last year…if he’d been nominated.
