'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' surpasses expectations






Nearly three years ago, actor Chris Evans introduced the world into his now infamous role as Steve Rogers, aka Captain America. The first film for the comic book character and the first time audiences got a glimpse into the mysterious persona was based around how Steve Rogers the small, scrawny boy turned into Captain America the brawny, muscular man that saved the world and fought for America’s freedom during the darkest days of the Great Depression. The film ends with the Captain awaking into present day, nearly 70 years after his glory days and being asked to fight with some of S.H.I.E.L.D’s most elite superheroes in 2012’s blockbuster hit, The Avengers. Now the Captain is back in Captain America the Winter Soldier and is struggling to understand the modern world, and is incapable of grasping the idea that not everyone is to be trusted.

My 2014 Oscar Predictions!

This Sunday, March 2, 2014 is the 86th annual Academy Awards and will be hosted by actress/comedian/talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres. Most of the fun in watching the prestigious award show is guessing who will take home the highest award in film that night. Therefore, I compiled a list of the biggest awards to be presented, which are best supporting actor, best supporting actress, best actor, best actress, best director and of course best picture. I predicted who will win, and who I think should win. These are all predictions and my opinion, so please share who you think will win or should win. This year was a lot more complicated than last year (I predicted every award in those categories that won last year), I feel as though the category for Best Actor might just be the most anticipated award, mainly because everyone nominated other thanChristian Bale has never won an Oscar, and Matthew McConaughey who is considered the front runner earned his first nod for this role. Also, it truly is anyone's game, being that there are many predictions that this could be Leonardo DiCaprio's year (he has been nominated four times and never won) and this could potentially be a big win for Chiwetel Ejiofor as well. This year has such incredible talent and fantastic films to be celebrated, so make sure to tune in on Sunday on ABC to see who will be this year's Oscar winners!


Nominee for Best Actor in a Supporting Role

Nominee for Best Actor in a Supporting RoleEntertainment Weekly
The nominees in this category are Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street), Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave), Bradley Cooper (American Hustle), Barkhad Abdi (Captain Philips) and Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club).
Who Should Win: Hands down, Jared Leto deserves this Oscar. He was completely committed to the transgender role of Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club. Although the other nominees were great, especially Michael Fassbender in 12 Years a Slave, no one comes close to the tragic and complex character that Leto brought to life on the big screen.
Who Will Win: Jared Leto. The only person I could possibly see winning this category other than Leto which is highly unlikely would be Michael Fassbender. But, Leto physically, mentally and emotionally transformed himself into this heartbreaking character that audiences everywhere will adore.

Christian Bale (American Hustle)
Bruce Dern (Nebraska)
Leonardo DiCaprio (Wolf of Wall St)
Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave)
Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club)
