COMMENT DU JOUR
Supporting Actress: My Ballot & Yours

"Carrie Coon who in her screen debut steals Gone Girl from the much bigger names. Also can we just talk about how between Nora Durst and Margo Dunne that no one has as impressive a breakout in 2014 then Coon. " - Eion Daly

"Agata Kulesza blew my MIND in "Ida," so she easily gets my top ballot." - Lawson

"Keira Knightley. She just seemed like that rare person who can make you want to be better. So endearing, charming and she also has moments where she shows that she knows more about the world. A silent revolutionary." - MCV

YOURS? And what'cha think of mine?

AND THE OSCAR GOES TO: MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY for playing "Ron Woodroff" in Dallas Buyers Club

(But that acceptance speech. Yikes.)

Nathaniel's Ballot
Readers Rank (Based on Your Polling Votes): LEONARDO DICAPRIO takes the gold with 35% of the vote and in the close race for Silver CHIWETEL EJIOFOR (27%)  just barely edges out MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY (25%). With the top three that strong with voters there's not much left for BRUCE DERN (9%) or CHRISTIAN BALE  (1%) to pick up.

 Oscar loves alcoholics (see last  year's booze fest) and he's great in the movie. It's a career topper for a trouper.

Totally moving as a free man kidnapped and sold into slavery. But he will not fall into despair!

Two years of artistic resurgence - playful dubbed "The McConaissance" did it. Plus extreme physical transformation

He seems to have graduated to pride of place in the ever shifting sweepstakes of who the public most wants to call an Oscar winner. 

Bale and his awesome toupee and that pot belly. But he's such a fine actor we hope he quits all the crazy body stuff soon.

In the dread sixth slot? That's surely either Tom Hanks for his best work ever in Captain Phillips or Robert Redford for his solo act in All is Lost. Both looked like sure things not so long ago.
