Although the latest odds from Las Vegas have “12 Years a Slave” easily winning Best Picture at the Oscars this Sunday, I think there could be an upset or two in the making.
I know “the industry”  has been eagerly awaiting my predictions for the “big 5” categories so here we go.
Best Picture: “American Hustle”  (Easily the best film of the year. “12 Years A Slave” the odds on favorite however)
Best Actor: Matthew McConaughey “Dallas Buyers Club” (Christian Bale should win for “American Hustle”)
Best Actress: Cate Blanchett “Blue Jasmine” (Would love to see Amy Adams win here.)
Best Supporting Actor: Jared Leto “Dallas Buyers Club” (Watch for an upset here)
Best Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence “American Hustle” (Getting better with every role)



The latest odds, as of Friday morning are:

Best Picture:

“12 Years a Slave”, 2-to-5

“American Hustle”, 4-to-1

“Gravity”, 5-to-1

Best Actor:

Matthew McConaughey for “Dallas Buyers Club”, 1-to-2

Chiwetel Ejiofor for “12 Years a Slave”, 4-to-1

Leonardo DiCaprio for “The Wolf of Wall Street”, 5-to-1

Best Actress:

Cate Blanchett for “Blue Jasmine”, 1-to-5

Sandra Bullock for “Gravity”, 10-to-1

Amy Adams for “American Hustle”, 18-to-1

Best Supporting Actor:

Jared Leto for “Dallas Buyers Club”, 1-to-4

Michael Fassbender for “12 Years a Slave”, 5-to-1

Barkhad Abdi for “Captain Phillips”, 15-to-1

Best Supporting Actress:

Lupita Nyongo for “12 Years a Slave”, 4-to-5

Jennifer Lawrence for “American Hustle”, 8-to-5

June Squibb for “Nebraska”, 15-to-1

I guess it’s pretty clear I liked “American Hustle”
