We’ve watched the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, and the Emmys, but let’s be real, it all comes down to Oscar Sunday.

Film’s most prestigious evening is set to go down, rain or shine, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland.

Will Leonardo DiCaprio finally take home a much-deserved Academy Award? Will Jennifer Lawrence make Oscars history as the youngest double winner? And will Jared Leto continue his awards show circuit domination?

We’ll find out soon enough, but first, take a look at Carson and Producer Angie’s Oscar predictions!



Barkhad Abdi — “Captain Phillips”
Bradley Cooper — “American Hustle”
Jonah Hill — “The Wolf of Wall Street”
Jared Leto — “Dallas Buyers Club”
Michael Fassbender — “12 Years a Slave”

Producer Angie: “Selfishly, I’d love Bradley Cooper to win because I just want to see him go up there and talk and just see him be there, but I really think it’s going to be Jared Leto, for sure.”

Carson: “If there is one category that I think is going to be a runaway, I think it might be this one. I think it’s Jared Leto also and from what I’ve read, more than half the country agrees. Although, Michael Fassbender is such a good actor. His performance in 12 Years I think could also sneak in there.”



Jennifer Lawrence — “American Hustle”
Lupita Nyong’o — “12 Years a Slave”
June Squibb — “Nebraska”
Julia Roberts — “August: Osage County”
Sally Hawkins — “Blue Jasmine”

Producer Angie: “I’m going to go with Jennifer Lawrence. I feel like she’s an Oscar darling right now and they loved her last year and I think she’s going to take it this year too.”

Carson: “Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years A Slave, I think, is probably going to win this one.”



Amy Adams — “American Hustle”
Cate Blanchett — “Blue Jasmine”
Judi Dench — “Philomena”
Sandra Bullock — “Gravity”
Meryl Streep — “August: Osage County”

Producer Angie: “I’m going with Amy Adams, American Hustle. She was so good in that movie.”

Carson: “You’re going for all the young, hot, popular ones, aren’t you? I don’t know. I’ll be honest with you. I think Gravity’s going to do great this year and I think Sandra Bullock might win it and I think it might even win Best Picture and I don’t think it should, for me.”

“I think Cate Blanchett might take it. I thought Judi Dench in Philomena, if you saw that movie, she’s so phenomenal, so that’s who I kind of hope will win, Judi Dench, but I’m going to say Cate Blanchett.”



Bruce Dern — “Nebraska”
Chiwetel Ejiofor — “12 Years a Slave”
Matthew McConaughey — “Dallas Buyers Club”
Leonardo DiCaprio — “The Wolf of Wall Street”
Christian Bale — “American Hustle”

Producer Angie: “That really is the hardest category. I’m going to go with Leo, Leonardo DiCaprio.”

Carson: “You know what? I am too. I don’t think he’s going to win. I think Matthew McConaughey’s got this. He won most of the pre-awards leading up to this. I don’t think there’s a wrong answer in the category, but I’m hoping Leo wins it because I feel like the Academy owes him and I think they know it and I think they’re going to honor him this year. I think it’s possible.”



“12 Years a Slave”
“The Wolf of Wall Street”
“Captain Phillips”
“American Hustle”
“Dallas Buyers Club”

Producer Angie: “I’m going American Hustle.

Carson: “According to the industry insiders, it’s a three-picture race at the end of the day between American Hustle, Gravity, and 12 Years A Slave. That’s what they say.”

“I think 12 Years A Slave is going to win, but again, I’ve got that Gravity thing in the back of my head and I sort of hope it doesn’t. As much as I liked it, I’ll be bummed.”

“Of all 9 nominated for Best Picture this year, Gravity is the biggest box office grosser. So you know, maybe that’s what the public saw and enjoyed the most. We’ll see how much that influences the results on Sunday.”
