Oscar Nominees: Best Art Direction

My predictions: 4/5, picking “Fury” over “The Imitation Game”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, Interstellar, Into the Woods, Mr. Turner

No big disappointments for me, since it was actually one of my best technical categories. I guess Oscar voters didn’t like “Fury,” which I had predicted to show up a few places. Instead, they’re endorsing two of their overall favorites which are certainly nice to look at – “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “The Imitation Game” – and three others film that earned only technical nods (aside from Meryl Streep) – “Interstellar” (which I’m so happy is here), “Into the Woods,” and “Mr. Turner.” I don’t have too much more to say about this one right now

My current bet to win: I think Into the Woods can pull it off but I’m not sure.
