Timothée Chalamet on the Cover of VMAN Magazine

Hollywood’s next big thing Timothée Chalamet is on his way to possibly becoming the youngest winner of the Oscars’ Lead Actor category this year given that he was able to sway the voters away from perennial favorite Gary Oldman.

As the youngest Oscar nominee for Best Actor in nearly 80 years, our cover star Timothée Chalamet is redefining the role of the leading man. Photographed by Collier Schorr, styled by Robbie Spencer, and interviewed by both Frank Ocean and Xavier Dolan, Chalamet details his upbringing in New York, working with Luca Guadagnino, his relationship with Armie Hammer, and the realities of love and pain.

My 2013 Oscar Predictions!

Tonight is the biggest night in Hollywood as stars converge in Dolby Theater for the 85th Academy Awards. Last year was a very good year in films and the battle for tonight would validate the selected few who will get to win the Oscars and have their name written in the Oscar history book. With that being said, the competition is as stiff as last year when Meryl Streep and Viola Davis battled it out for the Best Actress category with the former winning her third statuette.

As for this year, like what I’ve been doing for the last couple of years – I’d be presenting my predictions / thoughts in certain categories with the THINK  and WANT format or Think / Want / Should Win format or Winner / Spoiler blah blah.

Here they are…

Best Picture

Argo

THINK / WANT / SHOULD – Argo is arguably the one to beat tonight with its unprecedented accolades left and right. The Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild and the BAFTA hailed it as their Best Picture and I cannot imagine the Academy not following through and not recognizing the film despite the controversial snub of its director Ben Affleck.

SPOILER: If the Academy will snub this film just to be different, the award may go to Lincoln or Life Of Pi.

Best Director

It should only be between Steven Spielberg and Ang Lee

It should only be between Steven Spielberg and Ang Lee

With Ben Affleck getting no love from the Academy, I’ve this feeling that the Oscar will go to either Steven Spielberg or Ang Lee – both are previous winners. With this, I think it’ll be Steven Spielberg simply because I kinda think that (on a personal level) Spielberg’s direction was much better than the Life Of Pi of Ang Lee.

SPOILER: Ang Lee for Life Of Pi

Best Actor (LOCKED)

Daniel Day Lewis masterfully portraying Abraham Lincoln

Think / Want / Should / No Spoiler: British actor Daniel Day Lewis is one of the favorites of the Academy having won two Oscars already. With his beyond impressive portrayal of Abe Lincoln, DDL could easily walk away with his third win – a well deserved win at that.

Best Actress

A Scene from Silver Linings Playbook

A Scene from Silver Linings Playbook

Now this is one of the most awaited categories of the night. Everybody thought Jennifer Lawrence had this already in the bag until Emmanuelle Riva’s name pops in and even snatching the BAFTA from JLaw. This could be a very interesting upset if the Silver Linings Playbook actress will go home empty handed after tonight.

THINK: Jennifer Lawrence – given the that American voters dominates the Academy, I should think that JLaw will get this.

 Emmanuelle Riva

WANT and SHOULD  /SPOILER: Emmanuelle Riva – her moving portrayal in Amour is beyond. This is her first nomination and was touted to be the oldest to get the nod for this category. Not for sentimental reason because Miss Riva’s 86 but because I believe that she actually deserved it more than Jennifer.

Best Supporting Actress (LOCKED)

Anne Hathaway in one of the most heart wrenching scene of Les Mis

No one – as in no one can beat Anne Hathaway tonight. Her portrayal of the ever so distraught Fantine in Les Misérables is perfection. The dynamic of her emotions as she sings the theme of the song has sealed her Oscar destiny. It’ll be such a shocker if Sally Field would snatch this one from her.

Best Supporting Actor

Christoph Waltz

Christoph Waltz

You cannot go wrong with Christoph Waltz when it comes to being cynical and all and Tommy Lee Jones have proven her worth a long time ago. I should think that it’s only between them and I’m betting towards Waltz winning this. Atleast I think the Academy have voted for him.

TLJ

SPOILER: Tommy Lee Jones for Lincoln

2011 Oscars Best Dressed!

Mila Kunis was snub from the supporting role category but we can’t do that to sweet lips. In this soft lavender Elie Saab gown with matching diamond earrings and bangles, we’re declaring her the Ultimate Best Dressed of the night. Sorry, Natalie!
Amy Adams wearing a L’Wren gown with bright green jewels looking magnificent as ever! Who doesn’t love her??!
Melissa Leo so deserved to be part of this list in this custom-made Marc Bouwer gown. Wearing this plus an Oscar! Are you going to ask for more??
Jennifer Lawrence sure knows how to work the red carpet. Consistency is the key, this time she’s wearing something from Calvin Klein gown collection matching it with smokey eye make up and a glittery clutch! She’s a STAR!
Mandy Moore used to be this spiteful teeny bopper who’s singing some lousy tween songs. This time, she’s a celebrity Goddess with this nude Monique Lhuillier gown with a pair of retro earrings!
Oh, don’t fret Natalie Portman’s fans. She won the Oscar and yes, we are also awarding her as one of the best dressed with this off-shouldered Rodarte Gown. Let’s now have a prayer circle anti-Oscar curse!!!
After her Best Supporting Actress win in 2009, Jennifer Hudson transformed from a B-List to an A-list in the red carpet with the help of this Versace gown!
Michelle Williams will always have a special part in our heart. Although she sometimes reminds us of Carey Mulligan with that bob,she definitely knows how to dress the part of an Oscar-nominated actress sporting this beautiful Chanel gown.
Cate Blanchett – We’ve seen this gown from the Givenchy Couture Collection and we’re excited to see it being worn by the amazing Cate Blanchett — she look marvelous!via zimbio.com

2011 Oscars Worst Dressed!

Nicole Kidman came tonight in a white embroidered Dior Couture gown. We’re completely speechless. We don’t know what to make of Nicole anymore. What happened to you girl????? We don’t want to do this but we have to. You are our Ultimate Worst Dressed. Sorry Nic…

Hailee Steinfeld -Don’t get us wrong. We love Hailee, I mean she’s all sweet and pretty but we’re not feeling this Marchesa gown for her. It’s just too Prom-ish…

Hilary Swank in a sequined and feathered strapless Gucci Premiere gown. We’ve seen this worn by a couple or three celebs in the red carpet. Sorry Hilary, we’re not buying it this time. So 2000 and late.

Helena Bonham Carter is wearing a creation from costume designer Colleen Atwood. We love her originality but that’s just it. That dress is a costume!

Sandra Bullock in a strapless Vera Wang gown

Yes, Sandra you’re funny and all but this doesn’t work for you. We still have the vivid memory of your Golden Globe’s hair. Atleast the bangs are gone –kudos to you girl!

Sharon Stone was wearing a feathered piece Black Swan inspired gown. *mum*

Host Ann Hathaway chose to wear a vintage Valentino gown for the red carpet. She had several outfit changes in the night. We’re counting on the red carpet dress, Anne. Sorry.
