Oscar Nominees: Best Art Diretcion

My predictions: 3/5, picking “Inside Llewyn Davis” and “Rush” over “American Hustle” and “Her”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: American Hustle, Gravity, The Great Gatsby, Her, 12 Years Slave

I’m evidently upset that “Rush” isn’t here and perplexed that “Inside Llewyn Davis” didn’t make the cut, but what a great list! I didn’t love “American Hustle” but it certainly looked good, and so did “The Great Gatsby.” “Gravity” and “12 Years a Slave” need no defense for their inclusions, and how wonderful that “Her” was selected to join them. This is easily one of the most well-rounded and colorful categories.

My current bet to win: I’ll hedge my bets on The Great Gatsby.
