My predictions: 3/5, missing “Kon-Tiki” and “War Witch”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Amour, Kon-Tiki, No, A Royal Affair, War Witch
I’ve seen only “Amour” in this category, which rocked the boat with nominations for Best Director and Best Picture today, solidifying its status as the frontrunner. Both “No” and “A Royal Affair” have familiar actors who have appeared in American films, and I hope to have seen more of these nominees and have a better handle on their chances well before Oscar night.
My current bet to win: It seems crazy to think it would be anything but Amour.
