And the Oscar goes to…

 -  -  3


Oh the Oscars. Every year we have the good intention of seeing all the Best Picture nominees. And every year we fail to do that. Nevertheless, the Oscars is a wonderful time to celebrate the art of film, writing and acting. This award show is also a splendid opportunity to appreciate alcohol’s effect on celebrities, the power of the “get off the stage right now” music and my personal favorite, Jennifer Lawrence’s lack of coordination. I feel you, J. Law.

In honor of this year’s ceremony, I asked the DC staff to predict who would win the awards for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Director. We may not be experts. But let’s face it, we are in college and have mastered the art of procrastination. In other words, we watch a lot of movies.

The same thing they want from movies: drama, comedy, sex, slapstick, glamour and romance. This year's Oscarcast airs Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
