TheSelphie: 4 nominations="Snubbed" in Subby's world


subby did say "all but".

I loved American Hustle. Haven't seen the others, though.

I'd post a pic of American Hustle but I don't think there's a single safe-for-work image of Amy Adams from the entire 2 hour movie, even though she's fully clothed the entire time. (Well, there's 2 shots of 'simulated nudity' but those are ironically more modest than when she's wearing clothes!)

The Wolf on Wall Street got the nominations it deserved (Director, Actor, Editing, Adapted Screenplay). So I am not sure how this falls into the snub category..

Well, they're probably technically "safe" but 70's fashion was necklines down to your belt + braless. If posting that famous Jennifer Lopez outfit gets farkers a timeout, then posting hers probably will too.

I think the only reason straight men like "American Hustle" was because of Amy Adams.  The actors were great, but the movie itself was meh.

This. American Hustle is being overpraised and Wolf of Wall Street is being underpraised. I do think some of the actors in American Hustle deserve nominations but that's about it.

It's good to see Despicable Me in the documentary category.
 
2014-01-08 11:04:05 AM
I saw gravity in the theater. I suppose I was poisoned by the 'is this the best movie ever?' crowd. I rated it "fine". Very pretty to look at but other than the beautiful visuals and competent acting I was left a little cold. I thought it was predictable and simplistic. When you get right down to it I actually enjoyed Armageddon more than I enjoyed Gravity.
 
2014-01-08 11:09:17 AM
Gravity was a good piece of spectacle, but it is in no way the philosophical, life-changing, game-changing cinematic event that so many people hyped it up to be in that opening week.

Captain Phillips was a f*cking lie, according to 11 crew members who were on the ship the day of the hijacking.


and it got 9??   Wolf of Wall street got 4??  the wolf was real.  he got 22 months and had to pay 110 million in restitution.


i guess the old british order doesn't like their criminal friends over the big pond being dissed.

Wolf Of Wall Street?   now that is a Film.
 
2014-01-08 11:48:20 AM
ever notice how American Hustler boob girl was such a distraction???  i thought the movie was average, but maybe because i found myself looking at boob girl all the time and that distracted me from the story.   i might have to watch it again and focus on the Film, not boob girl.

i wonder if that was the director's intent??   to make a point.  a boob point in this instance.

It was a gorgeous movie that bored me to farking tears and made me hope Bullock's character died in a horrific explosion.

It didn't have the spectacle, and was mind alteringly stupid, but it just might have been more entertaining.

yea, i see that too.  not much story, more style.   didn't learn a damn thing about gravity other than its a good thing, even when it seems too heavy sometimes.

she ain't heavy,
she's my gravity.

I'm glad I saw gravity in 3D, because the visuals are pretty much all it had going for it. Otherwise it was predictable and kind of boring. I don't get all the hype. I'm going to see Amy Adams' boobs American Hustle this weekend, I hope it lives up to its hype.

I thought Gravity was a sloppy hackneyed movie with real nice special effects.  NOBODY EVER TAUGHT HER HOW TO PRAY!!!!

The best part is when Richard Parker ate her. I assume Gravity was a strange occurrence at owl creek bridge.

well, it makes me wonder what else is in the film if boobs are one of the central characters. its a distraction from everything else, which may have been the director's intent.   i'd just as soon watch porn if i want to see boobs on film.

This.

The females were easy on the eyes, but the plot was a bit plodding at times. After we saw it, I commented to my GF that they probably could have made it better by editing out 10-15 minutes from the final cut.

It's just cleavage. If you're going for boobs see Wolf of Wall Street instead, there's a bunch of them in it. And it's much funnier too.

I liked Wolf of Wall Street better when it was called Goodfellas.  It seemed like Scorsese was just going back to the well.  One of his weaker efforts, in my opinion.
 
2014-01-08 02:44:39 PM
I just hope Stephen Fry is hosting again. He gives the proceedings much needed gravitas while not being too po faced

Link

If he does host i wonder who he will get to flow the kiss this year. Brad Pitt did it in 2012 and Jennifer Lawrence did it in 2013

Master of the Flying Guillotine: Gravity was a good piece of spectacle, but it is in no way the philosophical, life-changing, game-changing cinematic event that so many people hyped it up to be in that opening week.


I'll always remember it because occassionally a film comes along that is just like someone ramps up the visual experience of cinema and as a viewer you just gasp or weep or get goosebumps at what you see. I found the emotional stuff a bit hokey (but probably necessary to the pacing), but as a thrilling experience of survival and struggling, it was for my money, incredible.
 
2014-01-08 04:41:07 PM
BTW Is 12 Years a Slave worth seeing, or is it button-pushing Oscar bait?

It's told in a similar way, but Leo is a very different kind of bad guy. There is much less violence and a ton more humor (and sex). Really, I'm pretty sure I laughed more than at any comedies I saw this year.

I feel the same way. I doubt I'll buy the DVD but it was an amazing theatrical experience, and if they rereleased it in theaters sometime in the future I'd likely go again.

Dallas Buyers Club was snubbed, it was the best film I have seen all year, McConaughey  deserves recognition this year.
 
2014-01-08 05:34:25 PM
I can see a nom for Best Editing, or Best VFX, but Gravity for Best Pic? Bleh. Mired in eye-rolling sentimentality, mostly by Sandra Bullock's character, the movie missed a great opportunity to really show off how amazing astronauts really are.
 
2014-01-08 06:40:50 PM
American Hustle was somewhat plodding. It was a plot-heavy story but Russell tried to make it a character/actor-driven movie, like Silver Linings Playbook was. That clashed a lot. Nevertheless, the actors made it very entertaining. Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper were really, really good. Cooper probably deserves a nomination at least. Jennifer Lawrence was hilarious. Strangely enough, the least memorable of them all was Christian Bale.

This again.

The best one-liner I saw said something like if Scorsese had his Goodfellas then this is [insert director's name]'s Mediocrefellas

Despite the simplistic story, I found Gravity to be a fantastic film. Technically brilliant, solid acting, visually stunning, and the story wasn't as bad as people claim (though some of the dialog was terrible).

12 Years a Slave deserves every ounce of praise. It's an incredibly powerful film and should take home the top prizes.

American Hustle was good, great cast, good story, but I preferred Wolf of Wall Street on the whole. Though I don't see DiCaprio as Best Actor... he plays the same two-settings character in every movie: Screaming Leo (for when he needs to be dramatic) and Not-Screaming Leo (for everything else).

If you want to talk about movies being snubbed... no one is even talking about Prisoners (one of the most suspenseful, intense movies I've ever seen) or Fruitvale Station, both worthy of consideration and getting squat.

As much as everyone biatches about all the studios dumping award films late in the year, if they don't the film will probably disappear from the awards radar.  That, and award movies tend to all be focused on attracting a certain demographic anyways.
