2015 Oscars: Gold Rush Gang Oscar Predictions August 2014 – Birdman Flies, Boyhood Grows Up, Selma Marches On

Gold-Rush-Gang-Logo 2

Results are in for the most current Gold Rush Gang Oscar predictions and Fox Searchlight’s Birdman continues to hold strong, Paramount’s Selma rises and both IFC’s Boyhood and The Weinstein Company’s perceived main horse, The Imitation Game, make gains in multiple categories. Plus, we’ve added the below-the-line predictions in all categories save Documentary Feature and Foreign Language Film for now. So, who do you agree with? Am I crazy for being the lone person to predict Jack O’Connell in Best Actor? What about Jason’s full-bore stanning for The Imitation Game? Will it pay off or go bust? Is Nicole Kidman really in 5th place for a film without a distributor or is it just Kidmaniacs reacting to the screening this week?

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
