Tom Hanks may not have been nominated for Best Actor this year for his performance in “Captain Phillips,” but that’s okay, because his fans have a more prestigious award in mind: Best Picture of the Year.
TheWrap hit Hollywood Blvd. earlier this week to talk to movie fans outside this Sunday’s Oscar venue, the Dolby Theatre, and yes, a surprising number picked Hanks to beat out “American Hustle,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “Nebraska,” and the rest of the competition.
“Wolf of Wall Street,” “Gravity,” and “12 Years a Slave” were also fan favorites.
Unfortunately, few people could weigh in on the smaller categories — including Best Live Action Short Film, Best Animated Short Film, or Best Sound Mixing — but hey, at least we tried.
Watch the people pick their favorite Oscar flick in the video above!
