afleck was robbed for best director. argo was extremely well directed.

Yes, but how many Strasburgs will be handed out that night?

/Strasburg.

Typical. The Hollywood elites want to shine a light on a president who fought vehemently against oppressed citizens who tried to legally secede from the Union.

Sigh...yet another year goes by, and Lindsey Lohan is continually snubbed.

Is Daneil Day Lewis the greatest actor of all time?
I'm drinking that milk shake.

Your point and name make this comment hilarious.

I feel bad for Hugh Jackman going up against DDL for best lead actor.  Hugh gave a good performance, but I mean... it's Daniel Day-farking-Lewis.
 
2013-01-10 12:34:37 PM
Granted going in I knew the movie was oscar bait, but really? I swear watching Lincoln was like watching Abe Simpson go "back in my day..." for a straight hour, if Abe Lincoln was really like that I can see why someone would have wanted him dead besides the whole civil war thing.

I will say though Sally Field played her part well, and the dude from Stargate played an excellent part in the movie (Shame Senators aren't allowed to shoot at lobbyists anymore).
 
2013-01-10 12:38:45 PM
I saw somewhere that DDL grew up supporting (and I guess still does) Milwall FC. One of the last fanbases I would think could have such a master thespian amongst them.
 
2013-01-10 12:39:58 PM
This year was a terrible year for movies. Also, I don't know why they bothered nominating anyone else for best actor or best supporting actress. I always love how the movies up for these nominations never correlate with my favorite movies, but I don't care. It doesn't make me like something less if it isn't given any love.

/Liked "Lincoln" and "Les Miserables" very much
//Still liked "The Hobbit" more- especially in the HFR 3D
///Wasn't overly impressed with anything else, really

Wouldn't suprise me in the slightest if he was snubbed because the Academy can't get past his Bennifer/Gigli days.

At minimum it should have gotten a makeup nomination. And I think should have been nominated for an acting award, it really showed his range.

/Denis Lavant in Holy Motors was also an amazing multi-role performance.
 
2013-01-10 12:54:08 PM
Gah, Tom Hanks should have been nominated.

I love three fact that three out of four of the nominated Best Animated films are actually animated films and not something that was done on someone's iMac.

Stunned Affleck and Bigelow didn't get into Director for Argo and Zero Dark Thirty.  Gotta be cruising for a Lincoln triumph across the board.

Oscar likes to pull the rug out from under nominees.. especially nominees with a million categories. I'm just saying. Oscar trolls.

I thought it was good, I really enjoyed it, but I didn't think that movie was Oscar worthy. At best maybe for visual effects, but even then they seemed to be pretty standard CGI effects.

Can't believe it didn't get in for Best Original Score.  So good.

Really? A historical drama, a musical and a film by the Weinsteins secure a load of nominations?

anyone acting like a magic retard this year?

I still haven't seen it... Or Argo... Or Les Miserables. I have some catching up to do.

Occasionally, I'm forced to accept that I'm simply objectively wrong about a movie--i.e., I hated Winter's Bone a couple years ago and thought it was one of the worst movies I'd ever seen, but the sheer number of people proclaiming its greatness forced me to think that, yeah, maybe I'm just wrong.

I feel the same way about Lincoln. Day-Lewis (and Tommy Lee f-ing Jones) was absolutely awesome, as he always is. But the movie itself was too Spielbergy, I thought the rest of the acting was horrible, found it boring as hell as a whole, and can't, for the life of me, understand the idolization this supposedly awesome script is getting. Any other actor, at all, in the leading role, and this movie is probably on par with the National Geographic (or whatever channel) ripoff that aired around the same time. And if one actor can completely make or break a film, then how good can that film be?

I feel the same way about Gangs of New York.  Day-Lewis is the main reason why I find that film enjoyable.

I once was standing next to Ben Affleck in an empty theater lobby. I SO wanted to say that to him. I didn't. I didn't say anything.

Cloud Atlas should win makeup outright.. leagues above anything else, so this is clearly a snub.

The umpteenth version of Les Miz sucked. I'm sorry, it was a horribly paced borefest.

The scene where Tommy Lee Jones eviscerates Congressman Wood in support of the amendment is bloody brilliant. Then right afterwards when he says "I believe I would have said just about anything to get it passed".

It was horribly paced. No way could that kind of narrative structure sustain a 3 hour movie. But it had merits.

The difference, though? Everyone kinda recognized that Gangs of New York wasn't a good movie, and it was sort of understood that the only reason it got nominated for Best Picture was because Scorsesee did it and that it didn't have a chance in hell of winning. But cornball Lincoln actually has a pretty good chance of winning.

I just saw this movie on Monday. My girlfriend and I were the only people in the theater until 20 minutes into the movie when some other guy walked in. Who the fark shows up to a movie 20 minutes late?

Anyway despite there being only 3 people in the theater, I was clapping after that scene.

I thought it was a bit cornball, too. FDR: American Badass at least had werewolves. Vampires are a bit played out. 12 nominations seems a bit extreme.

Well, alright...it was a good movie, but it certainly wasn't great, and that was pretty universally recognized. Lincoln's being treated like it's on par with farking Schindler's List for god's sake.
