Oscar Nominations 2015: Star Predictions


The 87th Academy Awards are finally upon us and it couldn’t be more exciting. There are some many amazing films, actors and actresses nominated that it’s hard to pick a favourite. Personally I’d like to see Selma win best picture, Eddie Redmayne best actor and Rosamund Pike best actress, though I have to say that Julianne Moore is also a very strong contender. Boyhood and Birdman are also bound to take home a gong or two.

I’m sure we can expect a few surprises, but one or two British favourites picking up a trophy shouldn’t be one of those.

Ahead of tonight’s ceremony, Alexa Chung, Pixie Lott, Emily Ratajkowski, Emilia Fox and Erin O’Connor all revealed who they’d like to see in the limelight, courtesy of Topshop:
