Mumbai, Feb. 17 -- Sidharth Malhotra, who is a movie buff, is eagerly looking forward to the 87th Academy Awards that will take place on February 22.
The 30-year-old says, "There are really good films that have been nominated and there are some outstanding performances. I have been on a movie marathon of sorts and have watched most of them."
A source says that even though Sidharth was busy wrapping up the schedule of his next film recently, he made it a point to watch one film every day. Apparently, Sidharth has even made his own predictions for the winners. He plans to wake up early on February 23 to watch the Oscar ceremony live on TV. The event will take place in the US on February 22.
Sidharth further adds, "I think Birdman (2014) is a fabulous film and has been directed very well. There are also some stellar performances by Michael Keaton (in Birdman), Benedict Cumberbatch (in The Imitation Game; 2014), Julianne Moore (in Still Alice; 2014) and Rosamund Pike (in Gone Girl; 2014)."
