The Young Folks Oscar Panel Series: Best Director


I am mourned on tonight’s panel episode as we’re joined by Gaby to talk about our picks for Best Director in this years Academy Awards. Only two days away and the categories become instantly more stacked and, more interestingly, more neck and neck.

It’s a fight for the trophy for this category and we all had a lot of differing picks for who we’d like to see win. Our one point of interest that we agreed 100% is that Morten Tyldum had no business being included for The Imitation Game. Check out the list of nominees below as well as out video! Let us know who you’d pick!

“Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” Alejandro G. Iñárritu
“Boyhood” Richard Linklater
“Foxcatcher” Bennett Miller
“The Grand Budapest Hotel” Wes Anderson
“The Imitation Game” Morten Tyldum
