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.

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.

Fark It: How the hell did DiCaprio not get a best supporting for Django? Are you kidding me? Tommy Lee Jones got one for Lincoln? I had no problem with Jones, but was that really an Oscar-caliber performance? DiCaprio was a farking beast in Django Unchained. What a huge snub, and it wasn't like they didn't like the movie either.

/Samuel L. Jackson and DiCaprio both deserved Oscar nominations more than Christoph Waltz, who was also good.


Waltz deserves a nomination for every movie he's in from here on out just for the opening scene of Inglorious Basterds.

DamnYankees: Here's what strikes me upon looking at the lists:

Ben Affleck did not get nominated for director - A shame, IMO. It's really not that easy to make a film as tight as he did.

Jackman got nominated - Excellent. Totally deserved.

Amy Adams got the nom for The Master - Fantastic. That jerkoff scene was the scariest scene of the year in movies.


The Master had some great performances, to no point whatsoever. Really disappointing.

/And Cloud Atlas gets nothing, while Snow White gets a couple of noms? Who did the Wachowskis piss off?

It sucked.

But it IS one of those movies where if you say you don't like it then you are dumb and stuff.

Can anyone explain how it's not unrepentantly sexist to have separate categories for actors and actresses? Is it not a relic from the time the awards began, when it was well- and widely-known that women were naturally inferior to men in all things and couldn't possibly compete with them, so they had to have their own category? Why not just have Best Colored Actor in there too, while they're at it? Or separate every category: Best Cinematographess, Best Directrix, etc.?

If guns weren't such a touchy topic right now I'd be rooting for Django for best picture as it could have won. This has been a year of many good, but almost no great movies and the field is pretty weak. You can make a compelling case for 2-3 of the nominees in almost every category.

DeaH: 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?


The same thing happened in '94, I believe. "Pulp Fiction" didn't win much because "Feel Good Retarded Person Film #475" starring Tom Hanks swept, but Tarantino won for Best Original Screenplay. I expect the same thing this year for Django. Tarantino may be given the Scorsese treatment by the Academy, so fans should wait awhile for that directing Oscar for QT.

Honestly, if I were Ben Affleck (emphasis on the word "IF"), I would see that after all the highs and lows the past ten years have brought me (lest we forget that a decade ago, the dude was headlining 'Gigli'..) I've been lucky enough to reinvent myself as a great director and second chanced leading man, directing not one, not two, but THREE critically acclaimed movies in a row, the third of which is now nominated for Best Picture. Yes, the directing snub sucks, but the picture can stand as a testament to the talent behind the camera as well as in front.

I agree. 70% of that movie was closeups. At least it didn't get nominated. I imagine 'Lincoln' will win it. Deakins gets screwed every year. This year it's because 'Skyfall' is a 'genre' film.

KingsleyZisou: FunkyPhantom: 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.

That would be said because Les miserables had sine of the worst cinematography I've ever seen. Very unimaginative. Every song had the same shot: actor's face takes up 1/3 of the screen, rest is black or background. You see this same shot 5 times. Javer is shot the same way each time, including a pan out sequence in the middle of the damn song.

/sequence for "master of the house" was good in all fairness.

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

Agreed.


Dissenting opinion here, didn't think it did anything worthy of best director or best actress. It was tortuously drawn out in the opening few acts and Bigelow, once again, proves she can't shoot cohesive action sequences. Normally this could be overlooked, but when the entire movie builds towards one sequence and you can't do it right, you don't deserve best director. I'd go into more detail and the specific, glaring, issues, but don't want to post spoilers.

As for the girl, she wasn't bad given the material she had to work with, but I refuse to believe there weren't any significantly better performances by actresses in leading roles this year.

yeah those pro torture Nazi porn flicks never get enough love at the awards shows.

Sinbox:
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.

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.

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.
