This year’s Oscars is going to be a little more fun than usual as Ellen DeGeneres is going to be the host. Also, the movies that are being nominated such as Twelve (12) Years a Slave, The wolf of Wall Street, Dallas Buyers Club, and American Hustle are all great movies. This is going to be Ellen’s second year hosting the Oscar. She previously hosted it in 2007. All the nominees for best picture are very good, but I think it is going to come down to Twelve (12) Years a Slave because of how well the actors played their role of the characters.
I’m not saying Matthew McConaughey did not play well on The Dallas Buyers Club. I think he did great job, but in my opinion, I think Twelve (12) Years a Slave will win. The Oscars are very unpredictable so anyone of the nominees could win. I would like to see Leonardo DiCaprio win his first ever Oscar as an actor. It is very crazy and hard to believe he did not win an Oscar for either Titanic or Blood Diamond. I just hope he gets one for Wolf of Wall Street. We will just have to wait and see.
