In a slight change of plan I'm splitting the results over two nights, doing about half tonight and leaving the other half to the hours leading up to the actual ceremony.

'Best Picture' and the acting categories will be saved until tomorrow but we'll kick off with some of the others very shortly if anyone would like to get speculating. biggrin.gif

Makeup and Hairstyling

And the winner is ..

The Grand Budapest Hotel



Our first award of the night goes to The Grand Budapest Hotel! Just look what the team did to Tilda Swinton, unrecognisible. I didn't cotton on until searching for an image to use. laugh.gif

1st The Grand Budapest Hotel [5 first preference votes, 3 second preference]
2nd Guardians of the Galaxy [5 first preference votes]
3rd Foxcatcher [1 second preference]

A seemingly tough category when Steve Carell's transformation can only muster up on second preference vote for Foxcatcher.

Costume Design

And the winner is ..

Into The Woods



1st Into The Woods [3 first preference, 3 second preference]
2nd The Grand Budapest Hotel [3 first preference, 2 second preference]
3rd Maleficent [3 first preference]
4th Mr Turner [2 first preference]
5th Inherent Vice [1 second preference]

Almost a second award for The Grand Budapest already but it's narrowly pipped by musical Into The Woods! Featuring an ensemble cast, the designers did a great job of dressing everyone up as fairytale characters with some fine detail put into the outfits.

Cinematography

And the winner is ..

The Grand Budapest Hotel



1st The Grand Budapest Hotel (4)
2nd Birdman (3)
3rd Mr Turner (2)
4th Ida (1)
5th Unbroken

Another award for The Grand Budapest Hotel. Far from my favourite movie of last year in terms of storyline but it's hard to deny the scale of this and how great it looks visually.

Adapted Screenplay

And the winner is ..

The Imitation Game



1st The Imitation Game (8)
2nd The Theory of Everything (3)
3rd Whiplash (1)
4th Inherent Vice / American Sniper

Loosely based on the biography 'Alan Turing: The Enigma', The Imitation Game dominates the Adapted Screenplay category. The closest competitor is The Theory of Everything - big up the movies focused on Brits.

Let's have one more tonight and hope people are around tomorrow as the buzz warms up

Original Screenplay

And the winner is ..

Boyhood



1st Boyhood (7)
2nd The Grand Budapest Hotel (2)
3rd Birdman / Foxcatcher (1)
5th Nightcrawler

Another easy victory in a screenplay category, this time for Boyhood, one of the most acclaimed movies of the past year and one that began shooting in 2002 when I was SIX. And Buzzjack wasn't a thing yet.

Will definitely be here tomorrow for the rest of the awards smile.gif

The grand Budapest hotel is good but I don't get how it is nominated for so many awards. Though the makeup is quite good, birdman deserved to win for cinematography, Lubezski does such an extrordinary job on birdman he deserves to win. Would have preferred the criminally underrated Maleficent to win costume design but into the woods was also very good.
The imitation game and boyhood scripts were great (especially boyhood) but I did prefer the whiplash and birdman scripts.

Is it too late to change my vote for best song Jahq? smile.gif

Noo go ahead, it's not added up yet!

I think The Grand Budapest Hotel is pretty deserving of what it's up for but at the same time I don't really dig it as a piece of entertainment. The makeup, costumes, directing etc. are good but when it comes down to the Best Picture category I'd only rank it 6th.

I agree, I do think the makeup and that is good but for about 2014 films it ranks around 35th for me I think.

My best picture category ranking so far would be:
1. Boyhood (10/10)
2. Birdman (9.5/10)
3. Whiplash (9.5/10)
4. Selma (9/10)
5. The Imitation Game (9/10)
6. The Grand Budapest Hotel (7.5/10)
7. The Theory Of Everything (6/10)

Even though Budapest hotel and theory of everything are still good films, I just think they pale in comparison to the rest smile.gif
Nearly finished my Oscar challenge to watch all the best picture nominees before the ceremony, just American sniper to go now

Deserved awards so far. Although I think my vote went to 'Guardians...' for the "Make-Up/Hair Styling" award, which would have been preferable. But can't grumble at GBH winning that one. 'Boyhood' deserved that one so much! Lets hope it wins that tomorrow (I think it should do).

Original Score

And the winner is ..

Interstellar



1st Interstellar (6)
2nd The Theory of Everything (4)
3rd The Imitation Game (1)
4th The Grand Budapest Hotel / Mr Turner

Can't say that I pay much attention to the score of a movie but apparently Interstellar had a good one! Presumably better than the rest of the film.

Will be back at 9 ):

Animated Film

And the winner is ..

Big Hero 6



1st Big Hero 6 (7)
2nd The Boxtrolls / How To Train Your Dragon 2 / The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (1)
5th Song of the Sea

Trouncing the competition is Disney's Big Hero 6, an incredibly sweet and brilliant animated feature. The Lego Movie would've made this category more interesting / tighter I assume but I hope this would've won out regardless!

Shout out to the animated short 'Feast' too which hopefully walks away with the Oscar tonight.

Original Song

And the winner is ..

"Glory" from Selma



1st Glory (5)
2nd Lost Stars (3)
3rd Everything Is Awesome (2)
4th I'm Not Going To Miss You / Grateful

And John Legend triumphs on Buzzjack!! So pleased to see "Glory" get the recognition, the movie wasn't really my thing but this song playing at the end sounded so powerful with everything that it stands for.

Adam Levine takes 2nd with "Lost Stars" from Begin Again, one of my very favourite movies of 2014 and the song is pretty decent too, very easy listening.

"Everything Is Awesome" is 3rd, fun in the context of the movie but otherwise pretty grating.

No first preference votes for Rita.

Visual Effects

And the winner is ..

Interstellar



1st Interstellar (4)
2nd Guardians of the Galaxy / Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2)
4th Captain America: The Winter Soldier / X-Men: Days of Future Past (1)

The love was shared out here but Interstellar nabs a second award and well, the space visuals were a highlight where the story left something to be desired.

Not seen any of the Animated films but 'Big Hero 6' is the only one that appeals to me.

John Legend winning an award on Buzzjack though ohmy.gif

Visual Effects is a hard one to judge because it's not as though the effects in 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' or 'Guardians of the Galaxy' could really have been better but the effects that I've seen from trailers/clips of 'Interstellar' look amazing!

Yay for interstellar winning another award, one of my favourites of last year wub.gif The visual effects were stunning
Looks like my last vote change gave glory the win over lost stars, glory is really nice and surprisingly good for a John Legend track ohmy.gif
Also happy Big Hero 6 won that category, absolutely amazing animation wub.gif Though the best animation of 2014 wasn't nominated sad.gif [I'm talking about the book of life not that awful brick one]

Directing

And the winner is ..

Richard Linklater, Boyhood



1st Richard Linklater, Boyhood (8)
2nd Alejandro González Iñárittu, Birdman (2)
3rd Wes Anderson, The Grand Budapest Hotel / Morten Tyldum, The Imitation Game (1)
5th Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher

All those years have paid off! Absolutely no competition here and not a category I'd expect an upset in tonight. Does dedication get much bigger.

Interestingly the next Richard Linklater project appears to star Glee cast member Blake Jenner ohmy.gif Get it.
