Best Picture

Andrew’s pick: Boyhood

“Boyhood cannot be overtaken this season. It’s bad luck to be up against such a unique and successful project.”


Best Actress

Andrew’s pick: Julianne Moore

“She will ruin Felicity Jones’s night with her unusually radiant depiction of Alzheimer’s in Still Alice.”


Best Actor

Andrew’s pick: Eddie Redmayne 

“His Professor Stephen Hawking is a masterclass and the Americans love a posh, clever Brit (which both are).”


Best Director

Andrew’s pick: Alejandro González Iñárritu 

“Boyhood’s Richard Linklater might be pipped by Alejandro González Iñárritu for his high-wire act on the “one-take” Birdman.”


Best Supporting Actor

Andrew’s pick: JK Simmons

“JK Simmons has been working all his life for this, and deserves to win for Whiplash.”


Best Supporting Actress

Andrew’s pick: Patricia Arquette

“Not just for devoting 12 years to Boyhoodbut for stealing the film from her boy.”
