Question of the week

Question of the Week: How many of the Oscar nominees for best picture and the acting and supporting acting categories have you seen? Whom are you rooting for?

February 26, 2014 

Shelby Sutter, junior, Enochs High School

I saw “American Hustle” and will be rooting for Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence!

Toshali Katyal, junior, Modesto High

I definitely want Leonardo DiCaprio to win for “The Wolf of Wall Street”! It’s about time he wins an Oscar!

Taylor Menezes, senior, Central Catholic High School

Honestly, I just want Leonardo DiCaprio to win so that they stop making memes about him, and because I love him.

Dominique Germann, freshman, Modesto Junior College

Although I haven’t seen any of them (oh my gosh, how embarrassing), I am totally for “12 Years a Slave.” I want them to win as much as they can. One day, I will have the guts to watch it.
