Are you watching The Oscars this lovely Sunday afternoon? Would you if you happened to have cable, or if you didn’t have work? Do you hate The Oscars but secretly want to be up to date?
Good news — the Golden Gate Xpress managing editors (lovers of The Oscars) and editor-in-chief (hater of The Oscars) are here to help.
Follow us at @thenenja, @jo_sanfrancisco and @returnofthedok (and #XpressOscars) for our live-tweeting event tonight. Below are our predictions for the winners, though we’ll be honest that some of these calls are made on how hot their names sound. We’ll be keeping track on Twitter, and stay tuned for our full coverage of tweets here on the Xpress blog later tonight!
Best Picture: Gravity (because space is pretty)
Best Actor in a Leading Role: Leonardo DiCaprio (give that man an Oscar already)
Best Actress in a Leading Role: Meryl Streep (for Jonathan Ramos)
Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Jared Ledo (because he’s a vegan)
Best Actress in a Supporting Role: Jennifer Lawrence (all of the reasons)
Best Animated Feature: Frozen (cue singing)
Best Directing: Wolf of Wall Street (gotta be good to direct that long of a movie)
Stay tuned to see how bad our calls were.
