Thanks for stopping by www.survi.infor my Oscar 2014 predictions.
Each year, I geek out about the Oscars and almost every year, they let me down. For some reason each year I get more excited than the previous year. After watching over a 100 Hollywood films in 2013. I can’t help but feel unvested in what happens on Oscar night.
Among the 2013 movies nominated, American Hustle: loosely based on real events, and the audience-pleasing 3D Gravity topped the nominations with 10 nods each, while 12 Years a Slave followed with nine nominations.

The countdown to the Oscars is on, so before the March 2 event wraps up award season, I’m making my final predictions for the biggest show of them all. Here’s who I thought will be taking home Academy Awards this year, Still hoping Gravity wins the best picture and Leonardo Dicaprio wins the Best Actor. Knowing the Oscar, that it would be nearly impossible.
