    I’d post this on my Oscar party Facebook invitation wall, but since everyone agrees about everything, there would be a 10 way tie on the guess-the-winner contest–assuming people went by the experts. Could be a boring night. #hopingforanupset.

    Hmmm, weren’t you saying that the race was wide open? This chart certainly says something else…

  4. Mike says:

    Helium was not the best live action short. It’s a shame if it beats out Just Before Losing Everything, which was far and away the best of them.

  6. Scott says:

    Why not Invisible Woman for costume design? Highest stitch count. Period piece. Seems like Oscar bait to me.

    Also, why wasn’t Amy Adams performance from American Hustle placed in supporting actress category? Supporting seems a more suitable spot for the role, which offered true support, unlike the actual supporting actress front runners, whose roles did not really do much to support either the main character (or ensemble in the case of American Hustle although Christian Bale arguably portrayed the film’s main character) or the story arc.

  7. Eric M. Van says:

    If you read the reviews of the Live Action Shorts at Rotten Tomatoes, the critical support for Just Before Losing Everything is overwhelming, an opinion I completely agree with. I think the Gurus are overthinking things in opting for the sentimental Helium (or the relatively slight The Voorman Problem).
