Although movie stars are elevated because their celebrity status, they still remain moviegoers like the next person. We may not think of them as such, but they are fans as well and have their favorites that they want to win at this Sunday's Oscars, which they revealed to ET.
At Vanity Fair's Campaign Hollywood with Juicy Couture, which was hosted by Newsroom actress Olivia Munn and Vanity Fair West Coast Editor Krista Smith in celebration of the 2013 Vanities Calendar to benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma (a member of Feeding America), ET discovered who the stars were rooting for to win Oscars this year.
"Daniel Day-Lewis is an amazing actor and what he did with 'Lincoln' was amazing but I thought Bradley Cooper was wonderful in 'Silver Linings Playbook,'" Munn surveyed the Best Actor category. "...There are so many great performances that won't really get the award this year because of the competition."
Silver Linings Playbook and its cast, which have both received awards at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards, was a frequently discussed film on Monday's red-carpet event. Argo was also mentioned from The Office actress Ellie Kemper.
"I love 'Argo'--everything about 'Argo'--so I hope that brings home a lot of wins," she said of the political thriller, which is up for seven Oscars. "I also love 'Silver Linings Playbook,' so anyone involved with both of those things I would be rooting for."
The stars continued to mention Silver Linings Playbook and its lead actors Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, but highlighted how difficult it was to select a favorite amid a strong variety of nominated films.
"There's so many incredible talents," said Jaime King. "It's so hard to choose because it was such a great year of many films and many actors that are so diverse. ...Denzel Washington was amazing. There [are] just such great people, so it's hard to just say one."
