Am rooting for both Leonardo DiCaprio and Chiwetel Ejiofor for the Best Actor this year, Frozen as Best Animation, Sandra Bullock as Best Actress, Barkhad Abdi as Best Supporting Actor and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug for Best Sound Mixing. As for Best Supporting Actress, i can’t really say anything about that as both Lupita and Jennifer are really competing hard for my vote.
