Oscar Predictions 2015: The American Sniper known as Birdman may spoil my Boyhood dream!

OSCAR PREDICTIONS: The American Sniper known as Birdman may spoil my Boyhood dream!

Here they are, hopefully to help you win your Oscar pools. In giving you my 1st pick, 2nd pick, %’s and brief commentary with maybe a dark horse or upset pick. My normal article would have had much more to say, but sadly, the time did not #FitInMyLife, haha. Some real craziness this year especially in the ever-changing Best Picture, Director and Actor races. It’s somewhat exciting to have 3 major races be so tight. Please comment, debate, share your picks and I’ll share more, telling you why you are right or way wrong. Remember, it’s not about who YOU think should win or was best, but who the academy will vote for. Here goes…

BEST PICTURE:

51           Boyhood

49           Birdman

American Sniper

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Imitation Game

Selma

The Theory of Everything

Whiplash

This is really tough for me to say. But my bias is really getting to me. Boyhood is an incredible cinematic achievement. To try something for 12 years with the same actors and have it turn out so well is so incredibly risky. It’s never been done before and when I watched the movie, it was so relatable to anyone, even if you weren’t a parent. Because it was about life and how all the small moments add to something amazing. But I digress. Boyhood had all the momentum and then Birdman snagged the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), Directors Guild Award (DGA) and Producers Guild Award (PGA). So it is a safe bet. However, I will predict that because it is so close, I expect a split between this and Best Director. Another thing to consider is the unique voting system where 2nd and 3rd place votes counts when there is no majority. So who do you think voters will vote for with their other votes if the top two are not first? Yup, you guessed it, BOTH of them! But this is where I would give Boyhood a slight edge. And quite frankly, if they don’t give it to Boyhood, I will be completely devastated. THAT is how much I think that Boyhood is epic and so deserving.

 

BEST DIRECTOR:

51           Alejandro González Iñárritu, Birdman

49           Richard Linklater, Boyhood

Wes Anderson, The Grand Budapest Hotel

Morten Tyldum, The Imitation Game

Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher

Again, this should go to Boyhood for the sheer audacity and vision to do a film over 12 years and still be good. However, Iñárritu won the DGA. Although the Oscars are voted on by everyone, so Linklater still has a chance. I really want him to win because Iñárritu can at least do another great movie, while Linklater spent 12 YEARS on his! Regardless, I am going for the Best Picture and Director split. Even if Linklater wins this, I am more certain of the split that Birdman would then take Best Picture.

 

BEST ACTOR:

51           Michael Keaton, Birdman

49           Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything

Benedict Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game

Bradley Cooper, American Sniper

Steve Carell, Foxcatcher

Again, the betting money is on Redmayne, after he took home the SAG, not to mention Golden Globes (GG) and BAFTA. In fact, the SAG has predicted the Best Actor for the past 10 years. However, we need to consider that the SAG is just the actors voting, who usually go for the performance. The Oscar voters are writers, producers, directors, cinematographers, hair & makeup, editors, etc. How many of them do you think Michael Keaton has worked with, chummed up with and do they like him? I am betting they do, they hardly know Redmayne and they will reward Keaton for his lifetime of work.

 

BEST ACTRESS:

Julianne Moore, Still Alice

Marion Cotillard, Two Days One Night

Reese Witherspoon, Wild

Felicity Jones, The Theory of Everything

Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl

Julianne Moore is a lock. She’s won almost everything, has been nominated 4 times before and never won. Plus she plays a devastating part, which is another reason that may go against Eddie Redmayne for Best Actor.

 

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR:

100         JK Simmons, Whiplash

Edward Norton, Birdman

Mark Ruffalo, Foxcatcher

Ethan Hawke, Boyhood

Robert Duvall, The Judge

Another lock. Simmons has won every single major pre-cursor. Plus it’s a great story of a favourite character actor. Who didn’t love him in Juno or as James Jonah Jameson in Spiderman?

 

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS:

100         Patricia Arquette, Boyhood

Emma Stone, Birdman

Meryl Streep, Into the Woods

Laura Dern, Wild

Keira Knightley, The Imitation Game

Another Lock. Again, Arquette has won every single major pre-cursor. This time, an incredible and authentic feat over 12 years as the mom in Boyhood. Kudos to Meryl Streep for her 19th acting nomination. Wow!

 

BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY:

55           Birdman

45           The Grand Budapest Hotel

Boyhood

Foxcatcher

Nightcrawler

A tight race. Most people are going for Grand Budapest Hotel since it won the Writer’s Guild Award (WGA). However, Birdman has quite a bit of momentum behind it. If it doesn’t win, then that would give me more hope for future Boyhood victories. If you want to win your Oscar pools, this is a good place to take a risk and surpass your competition.

 

BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY:

60           Imitation Game

30           Whiplash

10           Theory of Everything

American Sniper

Inherent Vice

Another two-way race, but Imitation Game got the WGA, giving it the edge. Whiplash already has the win for Simmons, but you can look to Theory of Everything as a potential upset if Redmayne doesn’t win Best Actor.

 

BEST ANIMATED FILM:

75           How to Train Your Dragon 2

25           Big Hero 6

Boxtrolls

Song of the Sea

The Tale of Princess Kaguya

Another two-way race. I have to go with How to Train Your Dragon 2 even though I thought it was weak. If the sequel factor is distasteful, then Big Hero could sneak by. Can someone explain to me how The LEGO Movie missed even getting in?!

 

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM:

70           Ida

20           Wild Tales

10           Leviathan

Tangerines

Timbuktu

Ida is the only film here that has nominations in another category. Enough said.

 

BEST DOCUMENTARY FILM:

80           Citizenfour

15           Virunga

5              Finding Vivian Maier

Last Days in Vietnam

The Salt of the Earth

We only have the BAFTA to help us here.

 

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE:

65           The Theory of Everything

35           The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Imitation Game

Interstellar

Mr. Turner

 

BEST ORIGINAL SONG:

75           “Glory” (Selma)

20           “Everything Is Awesome” (The Lego Movie)

5              “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” (Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me)

“Lost Stars” (Begin Again)

“Grateful” (Beyond the Lights)

Glory, Martin Luther King, and the fact that Selma was snubbed in quite a few categories like Actor and Director. Everything is sadly not awesome for the LEGO movie. Glen Campbell could be a dark horse upset here.

 

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY:

65           Birdman

20           The Grand Budapest Hotel

15           Unbroken

Mr. Turner

Ida

Same person who did Gravity and won has done Birdman. Enough said. Look for a dark horse upset with Unbroken’s Roger Deakins, who has been nominated 12 times and never won.

 

BEST FILM EDITING:

70           Boyhood

20           Whiplash

10           American Sniper

Grand Budapest Hotel

Imitation Game

12 YEARS! Can you imagine how much footage they had?

 

BEST PRODUCTION DESIGN:

85           The Grand Budapest Hotel

15           Into the Woods

Mr. Turner

Interstellar

The Imitation Game

Grand Budapest won both the BAFTA and the Art Directors Guild. This is a pretty good lock.

 

BEST COSTUME DESIGN:

85           The Grand Budapest Hotel

15           Into the Woods

Maleficent

Mr. Turner

Inherent Vice

Again, Grand Budapest won both the BAFTA and the Costume Designers Guild

 

BEST MAKEUP & HAIR:

60           The Grand Budapest Hotel

25           Foxcatcher

15           Guardians of the Galaxy

This is one of those categories where anyone could win. But Grand Budapest has tons of nominations and is a Best Picture contender, so let’s give it the edge. Steve Carell’s nose shouldn’t really be enough to win.

 

BEST VISUAL EFFECTS:

60           Interstellar

40           Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Guardians of the Galaxy

X:Men: Days of Future Past

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Another tight two-way race. It’s space versus the apes in CGI.

 

BEST SOUND EDITING:

65           American Sniper

30           Birdman

5              Interstellar

Unbroken

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

American Sniper is in the lead, but Birdman is getting momentum from its Cinema Audio Society win. Could be a good upset here.

 

BEST SOUND MIXING:

40           Whiplash

35           American Sniper

25           Birdman

Unbroken

Interstellar

Historically these 2 categories of Sound Editing and Sound Mixing have gone hand-in-hand 95% of the time, except in the last few years. This is tough three-way race. If Birdman wins Sound Editing, it will likely take this one too.

 

BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT:

75           “Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1”

25           “Joanna”

“Our Curse”

“The Reaper (La Parka)”

“White Earth”

What? You don’t support our veterans….shame on you.

 

BEST ANIMATED SHORT:

65           Feast

30           The Dam Keeper

5              The Bigger Picture

Me and My Moulton

A Single Life

Well Me and My Moulton is from Canada so Yay! But the real winner that everyone is talking about is Feast. That said, I find this category is ripe with upsets, so Dam Keeper is a good bet. Plus some people don’t like Disney.

 

BEST LIVE-ACTION SHORT:

65           The Phone Call

20           Boogaloo and Graham

10           Butter Lamp (La Lampe au Beurre de Yak)

5              Aya

Parvaneh

Any one of the top 4 could win. But I’m going with the stats, odds and what most people are picking.

 

There you have it. So who gets the most Oscar love?

Birdman                                             4

Boyhood                                             3

Grand Budapest Hotel                   3

Whiplash                                           2

Still Alice                                            1

Imitation Game                                1

Theory of Everything                      1

Selma                                                 1

American Sniper                              1

Interstellar                                         1

How to Train Your Dragon 2         1

Wow, talk about spreading the love!

Biggest losers: Boyhood, because it really should win both Picture and Director. 12 YEARS!! C’mon!

So now….who is gonna be BEST DRESSED?!  Emma Stone and Reese Witherspoon!  Worst dressed will be Meryl Streep, but she is allowed, because….well she’s Meryl Streep. Eddie Redmayne will swoon for the men.

 

Here is the full list of Oscar picks (with my close alternate picks in brackets)

Best Picture: Boyhood  (or Birdman)

SOMETHING SPECIAL: Authentic Networking Masterclass

SOMETHING SPECIAL:

I’ve recently been inspired to do something very special for just a small group of select people.

But first, the back story… I’ve been blessed that over the last year or so there have been many wonderful things that have happened to me. I am now a contributor for The Huffington Post, I have been accepted into the National Speakers Bureau and I have been building multiple brands like DYPB ’14 – Discover Your Personal Brand Conference, Cool Connections, Humans of Canada – Official and have just released my new book – How To Network Anytime, Anywhere with Anyone.

And after reflecting on what the #1 key element to making this all happen was… I realized it had everything to do with true and authentic networking. (Heck, that’s why I wrote a book on it).

So here is where you might come in.

I have just put together a complete outline of EVERYTHING I have come to know and discover about true and authentic networking. And for the next 12 or so weeks, I am going to personally teach, consult and coach a small group of people and take them on a deep dive in this.

It is going to be 100% hands on and by the end of it not only will you have everything you need to know about networking, but I will have worked personally with you to develop your own network, which will open up a world of opportunities for you.

I have had so many people come to me recently and ask if I can help them with this, so I figured this would be the best way to personally invest in this small group of people and actually see transformational results.

Interested? If so PM me here and we’ll set up a time for a quick chat where I can give you the specific details and see if we have a fit. I can only make this available to a handful of people (to make it the most effective and efficient to everyone involved) so if you’re interested PM me right away as it will be open on a first come, first served basis.

Everyone Wants Legacy. Do You? Let’s start Sept 25!

Here are some things that everyone tells me that they want:
– Everyone wants to have a legacy.
– Everyone wants to feel part of something bigger and better than themselves.
– Everyone wants to feel connection to someone or something
– Everyone wants to feel needed
– Everyone wants to not feel lost sometimes as a leader, in their career, in school or in their business
– Everyone wants to have impact
 start-inside
It doesn’t come easy. You have to work at it. But one of the biggest challenges is that people do not know who they really are. They do not take the time to understand what drives them….deeply. They do not invest in their Personal Brand.
Do you want to have more companies and clients calling to hire you?
Are you one of the 76% of people who are dispassionate or unhappy with their jobs?
Have you recently graduated or are about to graduate and want to get a head start on job hunting?
Do you want to make greater Social Media impact with your online messaging & profile or your in person relationship building?
Then you must invest in your Personal Brand.
Join me for a deep dive workshop in Toronto to help you forge an authentic leadership path of passion and purpose.
I will personally take you through my customized approach that has helped thousands of leaders.
The best investment is you, the best time is now. If not you then who? If not now, then when?
Join me Sept 25.

What is Your Relentless Pursuit? Mine is TEDxToronto

I have always wanted to speak at TEDx Toronto. So every year I applied via their speaker application form. Why? Well there are many reasons.

– I have a message, story, brand and voice that can impact a million hearts.

– I have built a brand around TEDx having spoken at 4 other events.

– TEDx Toronto, for most Canadians, is the biggest and best one in our country. It’s the ‘big show’.

– Many of my colleagues have been able to use the event a platform to greatness in their career, speaking circuit and getting their message out there.

One of my good friends Drew Dudley spoke several years back. He only spent 6 minutes speaking on Lollipop Leadership, but it was momentous. Eventually that talk made it to the TED.com site. Now he has 1.4 million hits and a successful speaking career travelling around the world. His example, like many others I have seen, inspires me.

I have applied a few times and have had the honour of my friends nominating me.  In fact those nominations, along with Drew’s talk was around the first time I was introduced to the power of TED talks. 3 times the charm? Not really, but hey I have always been one to embrace failure. At least I have been able to go to these events as a delegate and share my ideas and use my social media influence to promote and support the others.

Last year I thought the theme was PERFECT for me: ”The Choices We Make’. I mean I have made some pretty ballsy and hard choices about my career, my family, my personal life, where I live, my business and much more. This year the theme is ‘Relentless Pursuits’. Oh man I love it too! Well that one also fits very nicely. Although it should fit nicely with all of us. You’ve heard me say often “Fight for your Life! If not you, then who? If not now, then when?”

What have I relentlessly pursued? The same things I mentioned above. The new thing I have been pursuing these days is health and wellness with my new #FitInMyLife campaign. Because I do want to be fit in my life and health living needs to fit in my life.  I also am relentless with creating deep authentic connection and helping the ‘lost leaders’ with my personal Why. But today, I want to say my main Relentless Pursuit is speaking at TEDxToronto. Part of that relentless pursuit has been speaking at 4 other TEDx events — TEDxUWO, TEDxLaurier (I hosted too), TEDxUTSC and TEDxRichmondHill. Another part of this relentless pursuit is asking for your help.

I am currently working on getting myself nominated for the next TEDx Toronto event! I will apply again, like I did the past few years. I am excited to share talk ideas on a few ideas such as ‘The Pursuit of Balance”, “Searching for the Best Hug” and “Fighting the Parent Values Gap to not become the Values Trap” and many more.

But this time I need your help. If my messages, talks, connection or work has ever inspired you, helped you, supported you, I would be honoured and grateful if you could consider nominating me via the link here. For everyone who isn’t familiar with my work — I am a 4 time TEDx speaker, author and contributor to the Huffington Post. My personal Why is “There are Lost Leaders Everywhere” and my Mission is to “Discover, Inspire and Develop Leadership in Gen X&Y. Much of my work is giving back, whether its through my Raeallan intern team, starting up Humans of Canada, or planning the large scale Discover Your Personal Brand conference on Aug 16. I do it because YOU are my Why, my Mission, my Vision.

I thoroughly enjoy public speaking and motivating young people and hope to continue to do it for as long as I can. If you guys would like to help me continue my passion and serving others please nominate me here. The deadline is June 30, so I apologize for the short notice. Luckily the form is pretty short.

Also, here are two of my past TEDx talk I have done to give you an idea what I am all about. What is interesting to see is how I have evolved as a speaker, even from 2011 to 2013. Thank for your time!

TEDx Talk 1: “The 5 C’s of Connection”

TEDx Talk 4: “School: Learning to Fly as a Leader”

As always, please let me know how I can help you. Because I can and I will.

Take care, Bobby
