SwimDaily's Oscar Preview

The 85th Annual Academy Awards are on Sunday and who will win the major awards are anyone's guess. There are as many as 20 films that could take home Best Picture and it makes handicapping the awards harder than ever. Luckily, we have SI Swimsuit models to help clear up the confusion. We asked Emily DiDonato, Kate Bock, Adaora, Genevieve Morton and Jess Perez to weigh in with their choice for the year's best movie, as well as their favorite all-time film and what they're looking forward to seeing. Here's what they had to say:

Best Movies Emily Saw This YearZero Dark Thirty and Beasts of the Southern Wild. I loved End of Watch too but it wasn't nominated for an Oscar.

The Best Movie Emily Has Ever Seen: I'm pretty cheesy I love The Notebook, Mean Girls, and The Devil Wears Prada. Total chick flicks. My other favorites are Into the Wild, Apocalypto, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Forest Gump.

What Emily is looking forward to at this year's Oscars: I want to see what everyone wears! I'm such a girl I love seeing all the beautiful dresses.

Best Movie Kate Saw This Year:Life of Pi -- I had read the book and was very hesitant to watch the movie but woahhh they killed it. How did they do that?? He was acting alone or with a man in a green suit acting like a tiger the whole time? Either way, insane. Insane being a positive word.

The Best Movie Kate Has Ever Seen:  Depends on my mood -- I've had a special love for Grease since I was little,  It's Complicated and Crazy, Stupid Love will brighten up any rainy day, and American History X is so so so well acted and intense.

What Kate is looking forward to at this year's Oscars: At the Oscars I love a good red carpet.  Meaning I love to check out what kind of sweet outfits the girls come up with.  I cant tell a suit from a special suit ... so that part is really all about the ladies.  I also love to see some funny acceptance speeches.  I love it when they get up there on stage after winning (somehow completely comfortable and confident) and make some clever joke and glide off smiling.  Those are real winners.
