And the Oscar goes to…who? Two-thirds of Americans haven’t seen a single Best-Picture-nominated film this year. The poll of more than 1,400 people revealed that the most-watched of the nine nominated movies is Captain Phillips, followed by Gravity, American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street. The majority - 60%- were unsure about which film should be crowned Best Picture, but 12 Years a Slave got the most votes at 9%. Respondents had slightly stronger opinions about individual actors and actresses. Almost a quarter said Sandra Bullock should take home the Best Actress prize for Gravity, with Amy Adams coming in second for American Hustle. More than 15% said Leonardo DiCaprio should finally win a Best Actor Oscar for his role in The Wolf of Wall Street, followed by Matthew McConaughey for his Dallas Buyers’ Club lead. Still, most people- 52%- are unsure about which actors and actresses should win. But there’s one person who’s already a winner- host Ellen DeGeneres, who has the approval of 60% of respondents. The 86th Academy Awards air this Sunday on ABC.
