- March 3rd, 2014

Cleveland Indians reliever and Simcoe, Ont., native John Axford was perfect Sunday night, going 18-for-18 in his Oscars picks.

The self-proclaimed mustache and film aficionado posted his picks to Facebook in advance of the Academy Awards ceremony.

Here’s his lineup card:

18. Best Costume Design – The Great Gatsby

17. Best Visual Effects – Gravity

16. Best Makeup and Hairstyling – Dallas Buyers Club (could be because I watched it last night and the images are fresh in my mind).

15. Best Editing – Gravity

14. Best Song – Let it Go (from “Frozen”)

13. Best Score – Gravity

12. Best Cinematography – Emmanuel Lubezki (“Gravity”)

11. Best Documentary Feature – Twenty Feet from Stardom

10. Best Foreign Language Feature – The Great

9. Best Animated Feature – Frozen (Unlike the past, this is going against my kids…They love Despicable Me 2 and The Croods)

8. Best Adapted Screenplay – John Ridley (“12 Years a Slave”)

7. Best Original Screenplay – Spike Jonze (“Her”) (The music video lover in me is made this choice!)

6. Best Supporting Actress – Lupita Nyongo (“12 Years a Slave”)

5. Best Supporting Actor – Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”)

4. Best Actress – Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine”)

3. Best Actor – Matthew McConaughey (“Dallas Buyers Club”) (Hands down…Sorry again Leo)

And he’s already gearing up for next year.
