Oscar weekend is here! A time when we all turn into armchair Siskel and Eberts (RIP twice!), and shout at our television screens when one of our faves inevitably loses. You just can’t pick ’em all.

But before the Super Bowl of awards shows, The 87th Annual Academy Awards, we can still bask in our dreams and enjoy the commercials that the best awards show host ever (sorry Ellen! You were really close Amy and Tina!), Neil Patrick Harris, made to get us ready for this golden event.

Oscars 2015: Weird Al Gets “Whiplashed” (Video)
  |  @   |  

Take my favorite musician/recording artist ever and add in my favorite movie of 2014 and you have a recipe for greatness. “Weird Al” Yankovic has teamed up with Oscar contender for Best Picture, Whiplash, to promote his upcoming world tour “Mandatory.” Whiplash is the story of a drum prodigy tested by his abusive jazz conductor college professor played by Oscar nominee J.K. Simmons. In Weird Al Gets Whiplashed, a video produced by College Humor, Weird Al stands in for Miles Teller’s character Andrew, while his patented accordion replaces the drums. The performer is excited for his upcoming world tour and is trying to get “perfect” with the help of Simmons’ Fletcher. While Simmons’s scenes from the film remain perfectly intact, this hilarious 4-plus minutes video has Weird Al voicing to Simmons what most viewers of the film wanted to yell at the screen.

You can check out Weird Al Gets Whiplashed as well as some of Weird Al’s other new videos here below.

Oscars 2015: Best Picture Nominees: Breakdown, Analysis, Prediction
  |  @   |  

After spending the last two weeks watching all 8 Best Picture nominees for The 87th Annual Academy Awards, I am now fully qualified to give you the lowdown, determine which ones are the best, and more importantly which one will win the big prize.

The crop this year includes the usual Oscars suspects: we have some historical/war films and biopics (Selma, Imitation Game, American Sniper); the movie about the person overcoming adversity (Theory of Everything); the quirky comedy (Grand Budapest Hotel); an original film by an international director (Birdman); a film by a long-admired Hollywood director (Boyhood), and the little indie that could (Whiplash).

There’s a secret to picking these things. You see historically, Best Picture films don’t win without their directors nominated for Best Director. Simple math dictates that that leaves only 4 movies that can win Best Picture. But before I tell you who will win, let’s focus on the much more important question: Which movie should win? Let’s count them down from 8 – 1.
