Larry H's 2013 Sugar Awards
Larry H’s 2013 Sugar Awards
Each year Larry H. makes his picks for Best Picture etc. I’ve chosen “August: Osage County” as “Best Picture” for 2013. Do yourself a favor and see this movie. These picks, however, are not necessarily my choices for the probable winners of the Oscars, but these are my favorites. When the members of the Academy vote on talent and popularity, there is a lot of room for differences of opinions, egos, and some, in my opinion, outright mistakes. This year my number one movie didn’t even make it into the top nine nominations for Best Picture according to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.  And they don’t know anything. Just watch the show on March 2nd!

  1. 1. August:   Osage County
  2. 2.12 Years A Slave (Probable Winner of Oscar)
  3. 3.The Wolf of Wall Street
  4. 4.Nebraska
