Fearless Oscar Predictions 2015

Projected winners in bold. I kind of feel like Best Picture and Best Director could split again this year, but I don’t know which one has the lead for each award. So, I’m guessing Boyhood for Best Picture and Birdman for Best Director. It really could go either way with one film winning both or Linklater winning Best Director and Birdman for Best Picture. But, I’m not playing it safe by picking the same film for both slots.

Which award winner would I stand and cheer for? Maybe Steve Carell in a miraculous upset. I’d probably cheer for Bradley Cooper too (he has a much more realistic shot). I’d like to see Big Hero 6 win Best Animated.

Update: Final tally is 16/24  – a pretty lousy results this year

Giraffe Encounter at Safari West

For Easter we traveled to the Santa Rosa area for a little mini trip. On Sunday we played around in the pool at the hotel, where I had a fun time filming Quinn.

On Monday, we went to Safari West for an early tour of the animal park. We got to sit on the top of the truck for the first portion of the tour, where we had an up close and personal encounter with a giraffe. Up. Close. And. Personal.

Fearless Oscar Predictions 2014

Are are my picks for 2014. Most years, I get around 18/24 picks correct, though last year I got 20/24. Am pretty confident in most of these except for Best Picture (where I almost picked 12 Years a Slave) and Best Supporting Actress (where if support for 12 Years is a soft I’d see Jennifer Lawrence winning). By picking Gravity for Best Picture and Nyong’o for Supporting Actress I’m sort of splitting the difference; gotta get at least one of these correct.

Update: 18/24 this year (winners in bold)

Best Picture: Gravity

Best Actor: Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club)

Fearless Oscar Predictions 2013

Here are my annual Academy Awards picks. My prediction for the winner is noted in bold below. After the ceremony I’ll update with the actual winners.

This year, there appear to be three “locks” (Daniel Day-Lewis, Anne Hathaway, “Skyfall” / Adele) so if you’re going to wager these would be your best options even with low odds.  I kind of wanted to go out on a limb for Naomi Watts but none of the Oscar prognosticators are picking her so I’m going with Jennifer Lawrence who is a safer bet.

Update: I got 20/24 this year, even though there was a tie in one category and I incredibly didn’t get either of them. Should have been 21/24 but I just couldn’t bet against Skyfall for Best Cinematography in case it actually won.

13 Blog Post Weekend

A busy weekend, though in many respects quite productive.

On Friday night, Julie and I took Riley to see Horrible Bosses. Not the most-appropriate movie for a 13 year old, but a kid has to learn about these things someday…

On Saturday, the three of us attended the Japan Bazaar at the Southern Alameda County Buddhist Church in Union City. They had carnival games and some merchandise, along with plenty of food and drinks and entertainment. I had a very tasty teriyaki burger and a beer (this, clearly, is a different kind of church than the one I’m used to). We were there since the family of one of Riley’s buddies goes to the church and was working one of the booths.

Quinn spent Friday night at a sleepover, then on Saturday at a birthday party where they saw Transformers (and Julie gives me a hard time for taking Riley to see Horrible Bosses!). On Sunday, I took Quinn out to hit some tennis balls. He has great fashion sense!

I also spent some time catching up on some blogging. I posted a ton of blog posts this weekend. Here are all the links!
