➻ BEST PICTURE
I know the Midwest and Nebraska nailed it.
MY PICKS: (1) Nebraska, (2) American Hustle, (3) 12 Years a Slave
➻ BEST DIRECTOR
I don't understand how the best picture could ever not be directed by the best director.
MY PICK: Alexander Payne (Nebraska)
➻ BEST ACTOR
Matthew McConaughey -- wow, what an incredible year. In addition to Dallas Buyers Club, I was really won over by True Detective.
MY PICK: Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club)
➻ BEST ACTRESS
How could anyone be any better than Cate [Blanchett]?
MY PICK: Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine)
➻ BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Jared [Leto] was amazing, but you know what was the year's great overlooked performance? [Michael] Fassbender.
MY PICK: Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave)
➻ BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
In a fair world Sally Hawkins would win this thing. She went toe to toe with Cate [Blanchett] and held her own.
MY PICK: Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine)
➻ BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
Rick Linklater's trilogy is a singular achievement and its scripts have a lot to do with that.
MY PICK: Before Midnight
➻ BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
Woody [Allen] deserves this. He's been so great for so long that we just take him for granted.
MY PICK: Blue Jasmine
