Loved Cloud Atlas, but it probably won't get as much attention

Matticus: Loved Cloud Atlas, but it probably won't get as much attention


This.  Cloud Atlas isn't getting anything beyond tech noms.
 
2013-01-10 01:14:52 AM  
Skyfall will get 1 nomination. Lincoln will be nominated for everything.
 
2013-01-10 02:07:39 AM  
Zero Dark Thirty deserves best picture, best director and best actress.
 
2013-01-10 02:32:55 AM  
Haven't seen Silver Linings but the buzz makes me think Jennifer Lawrence is a lock for a best actress nomination. Probably a best picture nom, too.

/nom, nom, nom...

Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Adapted Screenplay.  Get ready to start saying "Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper."
 
2013-01-10 04:51:21 AM  
And of those, the only one I think has a shot of not happening is Director. Russell might fall out to make space for the Director/No Picture nomination. Other than that, Silver Linings Playbook will definitely be seen in the rest.

Agreed.

What about the mis?
 
2013-01-10 07:37:57 AM  
Cloud Atlas was bloated and schlocky. Also, the book it's based on isn't much better.

The only thing they really got right was transitioning between the different styles of the segments.
 
2013-01-10 07:44:34 AM  
I really enjoyed Cloud Atlas -- but as mentioned already I don't think it will get more than a technical nomination, if even that. It's not "Best Picture" material.
 
2013-01-10 07:44:53 AM  
The Oscar moms are going to be a Les Miserables slobber fest. I'm calling it now, noms for picture, actor, actress (or best supporting since she only gets one song), costumes, art direction, cinematography and director. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if they angled for a best foreign picture nod just based on the title being farking French.
 
2013-01-10 07:45:50 AM  
Christopher Waltz for supporting actor.

I don't really watch Oscar bait so I may have missed a better performance, but that was the best I have seen this year.
 
2013-01-10 07:51:53 AM  
Argo was the better movie, but Silver Linings Playbook will get more nominations (Pic, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Screenplay), and Lincoln will get more wins.

Les Miserables should get nominations for Hathaway and all the costume and set design stuff, and perhaps a special award for Russell Crowe for being least suited for a role since the rarely-seen test footage of Geri Jewell as Indiana Jones.

I haven't seen Zero Dark Thirty yet, but those who have are raving over it.

For laughs I'm going to Netflix "Mallrats" and get an early look at Academy Award Winning Screenwriter and soon-to-be Director Ben Affleck.

If J. Phoenix isn't at least nominated for best actor, there's something very wrong with the voting process.
 
2013-01-10 08:13:57 AM  
Lincoln won't win any of the supporting cast slots, they'll probably pass over Spielberg for Affleck, Skyfall will probably get a few nods for special effects awards that no one cares about, Cloud Atlas will probably take costuming, and Zero Dark Thirty might get some nods in the odds and ends categories (it'll probably go against Skyfall for sound effects at least).

Popcorn Johnny: Zero Dark Thirty deserves best picture, best director and best actress.


I keep hearing this. I'm not into military/special ops movies generally, and the Bin Laden raid just doesn't seem that compelling to me. But they must have done something right..
 
2013-01-10 08:24:00 AM  
Django, Unchained is the Hattori Hanzō of movies. You don't compare it to other movies.

You got your Bruce Dern, who has been making westerns since 1963 in there. You got your lead actor riding his personally owned trained horse. You got your iconic music, and you got your fark-all-of-you-other-movie-makers-I'm-the-head-bull-mangani-making-th is-flick attitude of the maker. You got stunts, explosions, romance, subtitles, suspense, twists, history, violence, humor, and it's all wrapped up in a neat package and delivered to your face on the big screen like a move ought to be.

The academy can do what it wants. They know squat. They winced like little girls for years when anyone would suggest a person of color be nominated. Fark them and the horses they rode in on.
 
2013-01-10 08:34:08 AM  
It makes me sad that Roger Deakins won't win his first Oscar this year because the way people just mass vote all the technicals for whatever is hot, likely 'Les Mis' this time around. 'Skyfall' is easily his best shot movie. They need to limit who can vote on Cinematography.

I'm sort of in the same camp. I have found some military-centric/black ops films compelling in the past, but the Bin Laden raid doesn't really interest me.

However, after seeing the trailers and reading some of the reviews, I think this is definitely one I'll see in a theater.

Join Emma Stone? Why yes, thank you; don't mind if I do.

That is the worst Emma Stone has ever looked.

she went blond again. I still like her voice.
 
2013-01-10 08:48:41 AM  
Oldest and youngest Best Actress nominees ever. That pretty much makes it a three-way race between the others (Naomi Watts, Jessica Chastain, and Jennifer Lawrence).
 
2013-01-10 08:48:49 AM  
Hitler joke was uncalled for.
 
2013-01-10 08:49:37 AM  
No Tarantino or Bigelow for Best Director even though the films were nom'd for Best Picture? Consistency is not the Academy's strong point. Ever.
 
2013-01-10 08:51:49 AM  
Haven't seen Lincoln, Pi, Silver Linings, or Zero Dark. Really want to see Zero Dark soon though. My favorite of the other ones was Argo, but I could also see Atlas getting the nod and I wouldn't be angry. I understand a lot of people hated it though.

The ads I've seen for "Silver Lining Playbook" have made it look like a cleverer-than-usual romantic comedy. Apparently that's pretty misleading?

Sinbox: No Tarantino or Bigelow for Best Director even though the films were nom'd for Best Picture? Consistency is not the Academy's strong point. Ever.


There are ten Best Picture nominees and only five Best Director slots. Of course that doesn't mean Tarantino and Bigelow were at best the fifth and sixth most impressive directors.

Or Affleck or Hooper. A very interesting list, indeed...

Ok, so my earlier post about Mallrats featuring Academy-Award-Winning Director Ben Affleck was a tad premature.

On the topic of Zero Dark Thirty, who is the audience for that film? The right think it's a 3 hours cinematic blow job on the Pres, the left think it's a pro-torture manifesto and those who just want accuracy are shut out by the lack of it. I saw it because I love to watch Ms. Chastain ply her trade. But I just don't get who the studio head that greenlit this thought was the demographic for the film.

I assumed the political sides would polarize it, even if they had to do it based on 3 seconds of the film. That's just what they do (see gun control, violence in media bs). The movie is for me because it looks entertaining, Bigelow is awesome, and I don't give a shiat about politics. I at least know going in that something isn't completely perfect and I'll read about inaccuracies afterwards.
 
2013-01-10 09:06:58 AM  
Interesting, in the supporting actor category, I believe EVERY actor has won an oscar before.

the audience? why idiots of course.

propaganda films like this are paid for by you the taxpayer via all kinds of black bag shenanigans.
there is nothing to greenlight because a budget is there.

Operation Mockingbird

then they hire someone that doesn't get any work even after a few oscar noms/wins like Katy Bilgeload because she won't question anything and her default rationale is "it's hard for us ladies to work in film" etc etc... she cashes the cheque and weeeee...

don't forget, tobacco companies paid for films too.

war is peace.
freedom is slavery.
work will set you free.
 
2013-01-10 09:16:59 AM  
Am I wrong in being a little peeved that Spader didn't grab a nod for Lincoln? Thought he just stole every scene he was in, and brought an A game I didn't think he had.

Hawkins left out for Sessions? For reals?

If the announcements were any indication - McFarlane may be the Best. Host. EVER! (I hope the TED song wins, just so it can be 'Oscar winning film, Ted'

2013-01-10 09:28:46 AM  
Wow.  What a dis of Benn Affleck.  Almost everyone gets nominated for his movie, including the movie itself, but him.  No best director or actor nod.  I thought he at least deserved a best director nomination.
 
2013-01-10 09:29:19 AM  
its weird how the academy nominates, I know people get confused by directors not being nominated for the pictures that DO get the nod. ONLY directors vote the directors category, from what I understand, while everybody can have a say in the best picture.
 
2013-01-10 09:29:32 AM  
Ben, of course.  Not Benn.
 
2013-01-10 09:29:46 AM  
Also... NO AVENGERS! Mwhahahahahahaa! In my ancient cynicism I totally expected one of the 10 Best Picture nods to go to the Avengers just so they could flash up minor scenes from the highest grossing movie of the year, but they didn't! I don't know if that's a signal of integrity or if the Academy simply forgot that they watched the movie on the walk out to where their cars and drivers were waiting for them right after seeing it, but whatever the reason I'm glad that they didn't include it.
 
2013-01-10 09:30:36 AM  

Sinbox: No Tarantino or Bigelow for Best Director even though the films were nom'd for Best Picture? Consistency is not the Academy's strong point. Ever.


I would argue that Zero Dark, while a fine film, could have been the work of many great directors. But in what universe could Django Unchained have been made by anyone but Tarantino? Seriously, how could the Academy recognize that movie without recognizing Tarantino?

2013-01-10 09:31:17 AM  
Glad to see Ben Affleck got snubbed for Best Director. Argo really missed a lot of the true story.

Plus Seth Macfarlane nailed it about Affleck years ago.
