Without further ado, here are my picks! For Best Picture, I have ordered the movies according to how much I enjoyed them. I have also linked each movie in the list to my review of it. I had a pretty distinct bottom three. The others were quite difficult to rank. Particularly my favorite as I really enjoyed a number of the movies this year.
8 - Whiplash
7 - Birdman
5 - Boyhood
4 - American Sniper
2 - Selma
This list reflects my own preference.
I believe the Academy will choose Birdman to win Best Picture.

Who do you anticipate will win? Do you enjoy watching the show?
