Oscars 2014:  Best Actress

The Academy Awards are Sunday, so it's time for the annual predictions from the revered GonzoGeek panel: Bruce, Chris, John, Hunter, David Cantu of Cinema Deviant, film critic Randall Yelverton, Rey Swanko and Bruce’s copy of WWE 13 for Xbox 360

Today: Best Actress

The Nominees: 

Amy Adams, American Hustle (12/1)

Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine (1/30)

Sandra Bullock, Gravity (13/1)

Judi Dench, Philomena (35/1)

Meryl Streep, August:  Osage County (40/1)

Odds provided by Bovada (formerly Bodog).

CHRIS

Warning, this is going to be an all Hustle or Wolf zone. No Wolf nomination in this category makes it easy. The lovely and immensely talented Amy Adams takes it in a film that makes me long for the good ol’ days I just barely missed out on.

WINNER:  ADAMS

JOHN

Tough call here. Cate Blanchett and Amy Adams both won Golden Globes, Sandra Bullock was in space, Meryl Streep's always a contender and football in the groin has football in the groin. Cate Blanchett is the huge favorite in the betting odds, so even though I've never heard of the movie I'll go with her.

WINNER:  BLANCHETT

HUNTER

This is the exact opposite of Best Picture. Sure, any one of the actresses could win. They all had great performances, but the moment that Emma Thompson wasn't nominated for Saving Mr. Banks, the only actress that had a shot was taken out of the running. Cate Blanchett wins.

WINNER:  BLANCHETT

BRUCE

I’m hoping to see Gravity sometime this weekend.  It might change my mind, but probably not.  Cate Blanchett has been my pick since I saw Blue Jasmine several months ago.  She knocked it out of the park in Woody Allen’s New York version of Streetcar.  That final scence.  Yeah.  She earned it.

WINNER:  BLANCHETT 

DAVID

Bullock basically carried the movie by herself as her character was alone with her thoughts. Throw in an intense situation and what you have is a performance that practically shows a timeline of a mental breakdown. The only other contenders could be Meryl Streep or Amy Adams but with this being a unique film I think her panic driven role is going to come out on top.

WINNER:  BULLOCK

RANDALL

She's the best of the bunch and the odds on favorite. The only question is whether voters will steer away from Blue Jasmine due to Dylan Farrow's recent allegations about Woody Allen.

WINNER:  BLANCHETT

REY SWANKO

Hola ‘Migos!

The Gonzogeeks tells me that I cannots Oscars Don Nots because he is died. 

They tells me too that I must pick froms the list of the Mebee Oscared peoples and not just the anyones.  Okay Geeks, today I will Oscar the ‘Bestest Movie Star Womens I Would Makes The Sex To’.

Judy Blume - I don’t know wheres you are Margret, but I do not want to makes the sex with you. Not Oscared.

Meryl Strepyl - I thinks mebee I could make the sex with her...if she wears the doggie coat.  Winky-winky.  Not Oscared, but consoled.

Tully Blanchard - What? Who? Whaaa?  No.

Sandra Bullworth -  You knows, she was nakeds in the Green Lanterns….this is points for her... but not enoughs.  Not Oscared.

Amy Adamant - Yes. I would make the sex to this one.  Mebee she and the Meryl Stepyl could makes of me the two Julie sammich!  Oscared!

WINNER:  AMY ADAMANT

WWE 13

Meryl Streep sits at 40/1 so we won’t be seeing her as The Big Show this year.  Instead we get…

Amy Adams – got the gig based on previous work with the person in charge.  Red hair.  Pale skin.  Employed an odd accent – SHEAMUS

Cate Blanchett – seen as the biggest lock of all the nominees.  Thus, she gets the biggest athlete on the roster…THE BIG SHOW

Sandra Bullock – talented worker who gets by on playing the same character over and over…JOHN CENA

Judi Dench – hey, she’s British!...BRITISH BULLDOG

The bell rings and Blanchett goes right after Adams.  Ever the opppotunist, Bullock takes it to  Dench.  After a couple of minutes of in ring brutality, Blanchett takes Adams to the outside to continue the assault.  At 4:09, Bullock continues her assault on Dench with a DDT through the announce table.  That’s no way to treat a Dame!  Back inside the ring, Adams has mounted a stunning comeback and levels Blanchett with White Noise and quickly covers for the pinfall.  The heavy favorite is out!  Bullock hits an Attitude Adjustment on Dench.  The crowd is turning on Bullock.  Seeing her chance, Adams attacks Bullock with a fallaway slam.  Dench is on her feet and hits a big running powerslam on Adams.  Not to be outdone, Bullock blindsides Dench and hits her with a facebuster.  We have reached the 11 minute mark.  Everyone is feeling the effects of the match.  Dench grabs Adams and nails her with a pair of DDTs and covers for the 3.  Adams is hustled out.  Dench is feeling it now.  Unfortunately, she seems to have forgotten about Bullock.  Ever the opportunist, Bullock hits an Attitude Adjustment and that’s all she wrote for Dench.

WINNER:  BULLOCK
