Keith Slater spends a lot of time in the dark.
But all that time in movie theatres has paid off for the psychology student, winner of Friday’s DailyNews Academy Awards prediction contest. Slater nailed it, correctly predicting the winner in each of 10 categories—beating even the University’s resident Oscars expert, business professor Vincent Georgie.
Slater called the full slate: best picture 12 Years A Slave; best director Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity; best actor, Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club; best actress, Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine; best supporting actor Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club; best supporting actress Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years A Slave; best original screenplay Her; best adapted screenplay 12 Years A Slave; best visual effects Gravity; best sound mixing Gravity.
He will receive the prize of free movie passes for the Windsor International Film Festival, courtesy of Georgie.
