Jan Wahl: 2014 Oscar Predictions And Preferences

_________________________________________________________

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — KCBS Entertainment Editor Jan Wahl previewed Sunday’s 86th Annual Academy Awards and gave her predictions of who will take home an Oscar—and her choices if she was handing out the awards.

Longtime Oscar emcee Bob Hope always felt he deserved an Oscar. So he would begin the show itself by saying: Welcome to the Academy Awards..or as it is known in my house..Passover. Here are a few that will not be passed over Sunday at the Oscars, along with what Jan wished would have happen and the winners.
