Dallas Buyers Club OR Nebraska
But would not be at all upset, surprised yes, upset no if Philomena won

Forget all of this - hands down, now that I have seen them all : the award needs, should - and I am leaning towards WILL go to Dame Judi Dench. Her portrayal of a real ( and I mean nothing pejorative about any of the following adjectives ) simple, honest real woman is a master class of acting. She and Meryl Streep are the complete opposite ends of a spectrum on this one - The wood chipper verses the tea cozy - and where as Ms Streep not only keeps you at arms length with her blood spattered role, Dame Judy pulls you in - takes you along with her - allows you to love and feel for the character.
I told Dahn last night that I rarely cry at not dog themed movies - and Neil and I both had a gasping mini breakdown at one scene in this - I am guessing you will as well.
Dame Judy gets #2 ( and #1 was really sort of an odd award - so she needs a " real " one )
Amy Adams - American Hustle Cate Blanchett - Blue Jasmine Sandra Bullock - Gravity Dame Judi Dench - Philomena Meryl Streep - August : Osage County
Chiwetel Ejiofor OR Matther McConaughey - and really leaning more towards the latter, although Bruce Durn was freaking amazing in Nebraska. A hard choice.
Christian Bale - American Hustle Bruce Dern - Nebraska
- Leonardo DiCaprio - Wolf of Wall Street
Chiwetel Ejiofor - 12 Years a Slave Matthew McConaughey - Dallas Buyers Club
100% should go to June Squibb, but will go to Lupita Nyong'o , and she was very good, just not in the film that much....but for her first film out she was outstanding .
Sally Hawkins - Blue Jasmine Jennifer Lawrence - American Hustle Lupita Nyong'o - 12 Years a Slave Julia Roberts - August: Osage County June Squibb - Nebraska
I would vote for Jared Leto , but Michael Fassbender was just as scary and evil as a man can get with out being Hannibal Lecter
Barkhad Abdi - Captain Phillips Bradley Cooper - American Hustle Michael Fassbender - 12 Years a Slave
- Jonah Hill - Wolf of Wall Street
Jared Leto - Dallas Buyers Club
Hmmmm... since Gravity was ONLY in the director's mind, you would guess him, but my vote would be for Alexander Payne
David O. Russell - American Hustle Alfonso Cuaron - Gravity Alexander Payne - Nebraska Steve McQueen - 12 Years a Slave
- Martin Scorsese - Wolf of Wall Street
We are going to break down, and watch the crap fest hyper masculine overdrive mess that I know Wolf of Wallstreet is - JUST to get them all in.
