No choice for Sound Mixing? Isn't that your bag?

I really haven't seen enough of the films. Would be easy just to say Gravity again but doesn't mean much.

Cooper's a'ight.

Cooper and Adams make that movie worth watching.

Cooper, like the film, is tonally all over the place. And the blame for that rests on Russell.

I thought Adams was the best thing about that film, and, I preferred Bale's performance to Cooper's, no matter how hard Bale worked at it.

Loved Bale the most in that film.
I don't usually like him at all, but the last two movies I've seen him in (the fighter being the other) are starting to turn me around.

He just seemed like the most sincere empathetic character in the movie.

Agreed, though I dug that madcap nervous energy for the most part.

Cooper is the weakest thing in American Hustle. I don't find him that good of an actor. I think he is more suited for Hangover movies. I guess women like him because he is good looking.
Matthew McConaughey is a good-looking guy, and also is a damn good actor.

So yeah, I did quite enjoy Bradley Cooper in AH. Not as much as Jonah Hill, but maybe more than the others nominated. Watching Captain Hanks right now actually though, so we'll see about that dude.

The interplay between Cooper and Louie was maybe my favorite thing about the film, for what it's worth.

Cuz Louie's the only thing resembling a straight man in the entire movie. Loved his bits too. He's also surprisingly good in Blue Jasmine, though the Diceman runs away with the show.

Cooper veers so wildly between serious desperation and broad comedy that it's hard to know what we're supposed to feel about him. Russell (as with all his other actors) lets him loose without a leash, and the shift in tones is not handled smoothly,

Russell winning any direction award (for this and for stealing the Scorsese Linings Playbook) would be a high crime indeed.

I just don't like Cooper. He's one of those actors who is really, really trying hard, and most of the time it simply doesn't work. Kinda like Ben Affleck. I admittedly did laugh at some of his scenes with Louis CK, but a lot of the times his performance seems forced and unnatural. The Place Beyond the Pines is another classic example of him being miscast.

Should be a predictable Oscar night...

Picture - 12 Years A Slave (or Gravity)
Director - Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity

Actor - Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club
Actress - Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine
Supporting Actor - Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club
Supporting Actress - Lupita Nyong'o, 12 Years A Slave

Cinematography - Emmanuel Lubezki, Gravity
Costume Design - Catherine Martin, The Great Gatsby
Film Editing - Alfonso Cuarón, Mark Sanger, Gravity
Makeup and Hairstyling - Adruitha Lee and Robin Matthews, Dallas Buyers Club
Production Design - Catherine Martin and Beverly Dunn, The Great Gatsby
Sound Mixing - Skip Lievsay, Niv Adiri, Christopher Benstead, and Chris Munro, Gravity
Visual Effects - Tim Webber, Chris Lawrence, Dave Shirk, and Neil Corbould, Gravity

Best Original Score - Steven Price, Gravity
Best Original Song - "Let It Go" by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez

Best Original Screenplay - Spike Jonze, Her (or American Hustle)
Best Adapted Screenplay - John Ridley, 12 Years A Slave

Best Animated Feature - Frozen
Best Animated Short - Get A Horse!

Best Live Action Short - The Voorman Problem

Best Documentary Feature - 20 Feet From Stardom (or The Act of Killing)
Best Documentary Short - The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life



Choices in italicizes are obviously the one's I'm not fully certain about. The rest would require real upsets in order to lose.

Gravity probably deserves to win Best Picture given how many other categories it's bound to walk away with.
