Voices Around Town

Which movie will you be rooting for to win an Oscar?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Interviews and photos by Katie Straub.

"I loved the movie "Her." I liked that it was in the future, but it was recognizable. And the whole idea of falling love with your operating system was just too close to reality, I think."

Carla Enfield, Mountain View

"I enjoyed "The Butler." It got into the Civil Rights movement. It really got involved with how the presidents were reacting, as each new president took hold of the White House."

Leslie Dela Vega, Mountain View

"Sandra Bullock in "Gravity" should win the Oscar, that's my thought. It was crazy, and it was really good acting."

Peter Babekian, San Francisco

"I read some about the current movies, so I have some interest. But because I haven't watched any, I don't have a rooting interest this year."

Brian Gregory, San Jose

"The movie I wanted to win the Best Picture Oscar was actually not nominated — "Inside Llewyn Davis," by the Cohen Brothers. The characters weren't particularly likable, but that's not something that I find a challenge for a movie to be good or not. But I would like "Gravity" to win, of the ones that are nominated."

Kristhian Morales, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
