Gorg’s Oscar Line for the 87th Academy Awards

Birdman

The Academy Award winners will be announced Sunday in a procession of pageantry, pomp, and a heavy dose of circumstance. As is the case with any contest, Kevin Gorg, prognosticator extraordinaire, must have action. Annually, Gorg shares his Oscar odds with CanterburyLive.com readers.  Last year he nailed the top picture, 12 Years a Slave,  while totally dismissing Gravity.  His opinion for top honors as Best Picture is not as strong as last year but he again is tossing out a film that many have already declared the best of the year.

Here is a look:

BEST PICTURE>
BOYHOOD 5/2
AMERICAN SNIPER 5-1
THE IMITATION GAME  8-1
SELMA   15-1
THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING  30-1
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL 40-1
BIRDMAN or (THE UNEXPECTED VIRTUE OF IGNORANCE)  50-1
WHIPLASH 100-1

Whoaaaaaaaa!   Birdman, darling of many critics, at 50 to 1?

You can’t be serious KG.

“While Birdman was solid it has zero chance of winning,” he says.
