Re: Oscars 2011

Yeah, well I am following the race really closely since there's a film (and a few performances) I feel strongly about I camp out on AwardsDaily

Comparing to last, well it was interesting last year and I followed it some because of the 10 nominee expansion for Best Pic, but the only one I felt strongly about was HBP and I knew it had no shot in hell I need to see more of this year's films though, so far I've only seen 2 BP contenders.

So I'm going off what others say at this point. Eventually I might see more, last year I ended up seeing 9 out of the 10 but only agreed with like 3...

Re: Oscars 2011

I'm telling you. You should see The Social Network. Unless there are just some ridiculous films this fall/winter, it's a shoe-in for best picture.

Re: Oscars 2011

Looks like I'll be 5 for 10 at best in terms of Best Pic predictions, lol. Love and Other Drugs, Hereafter, and Next Three Days don't appear to be swimmers, Tree of Life was pushed back 'till next year, and I have not heard anything about London Boulevard....what's the story there?

In other news, only 7 contenders have yet to hit theatres though all but one has already been seen at festivals and such far as I am aware.

These 7 films are as follows and it appears there's a good chance at least 3 of 'em will make the list of 10 nominees announced in January

Black Swan (Dec. 3rd)
The Fighter (Dec. 10th)
Rabbit Hole (Dec. 17th)
True Grit (Dec. 22nd)
The Way Back (Dec. 29th- LA only)
Another Year (Dec. 31st)
Blue Valentine (Dec. 31st) - if the NC-17 rating hasn't completely knocked it out of contention...

A couple of sequences like the Seven Potters and the horcrux scene looked spectacular too. Dobby might be the weak link though.

Actually the elves looked amazing this time...and correct me if I'm wrong, I thought they expanded Visual Effects to 5 nominees? Potter should finally be in for this category...that they've constantly been snubbed should be a crime, granted CGI hasn't always been great.

P.S.

Don't know if anyone else saw but Blue Valentine won its appeal over the NC-17 and will be re-rated R...so it might be back in the race.

Best Visual Effects is a three-film category, though (unless they've made a change that I'm not aware of).

Well, I hope you turn out to be right with these particular predictions (hell, I think Thelma Schoonmaker should receive an automatic nomination for every film she does). It boggles my mind that Stuart Craig and Stephenie McMillan haven't been recognized for these films yet, so I'm hoping (maybe foolishly, I don't know, it depends on how next year shakes out - which is to say, it depends on whether an oh-so-prestigious royalty period piece comes along to get the art direction Oscar) they get it for Part 2. Part 1 is very different in that aspect, too; there are far fewer big, lavish sets, far fewer sets period, obviously, what with that Camping Trip from Hell stretch, so I don't think they'll make it in.

They voted to expand it, but I'm not sure if it passed. I couldn't find any follow up articles. Anyways, I guess we'll find out soon enough

I think it's an injustice Stuart Craig hasn't won yet for HP, but he has been nominated twice at least. Now he is due for another art direction nomination. His last was in '06 for Goblet. The first was for Sorcerer's Stone btw. Might there be an every third film pattern? Let's hope.

I have to say, I'm not getting what you're saying about Part 1. There's only about 30 minutes of camping. The rest contains some great sets. Heck, Malfoy Manor's exteriors and interiors alone should be enough for an Oscar nod if you ask me. On top of that you've got the Ministry. The Magic is Might statue is epic, there are new places like Umbridge's office, the place with all the desks of Ministry workers creating the pamphlets, the black hallways/chambers, the improved courtroom. There's also the wedding set, Godric's Hollow, the Lovegood's, etc, etc

Oh, not to mention new looks to the Burrow, Diagon Alley, and #12.

It is Serra's cinematography though which makes the sets look as brilliant as they really are. Compare shots (ie Grimmauld Place set shots) with ones in Order of the Phoenix. The difference is huge and these are the same sets. The cinematography rivals HBP and that got a nom.

Also, I find it interesting that you've selected Desplat for The King's Speech instead of DH. I know that TKS is supposed to be a Best Picture frontrunner, but is the score really that good? I think it's almost a given that Desplat will make it in for at least one of these considering his track record with the Academy...I just hope you're wrong and that he gets in for Potter instead. His score for DH: Part 1 score is fantastic.


BTW, having just watched The Kid's Are All Right I don't think that'll be a big presence in the Oscars. I see it being sorta like last year's It's Complicated, which had a presence at the Globes but not the Oscars. TKAAR is a little more drama heavy though, so I guess I can see an acting nom or two for it if nothing else Personally I don't think either of the indies (Winter's Bone being the other) should make the cut.

I'd much rather see a film like The Town fill one of those last spots.

Increasing chatter about Jacqui Weaver getting a nom for her role in Animal Kingdom after winning the Best Lead Actress at the AFI awards and the National Board of Review named her Best Supporting Actress.

Hey, you do not need to sell me on Stuart Craig's work at all. I wasn't saying that Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was undeserving, I was saying I don't think it's large-scale enough for the Academy to really take notice. Again, I hope I'm wrong. I think in general, you're kind of taking the wrong approach here. In making predictions, you have to almost totally put aside what you personally think is deserving and focus squarely on what will more likely make it in based on word of mouth, other awards out there, Oscar trends and biases, and the kind of film it is. Sometimes, those overlap; often, they don't.

Re: Oscars 2011

Hmm, well the BFCA nominations might be the nail in the coffin for Shutter Island, unfortunately. That association tends to go more popular/mainstream (ie they gave Best Picture to Saving Private Ryan, nominated TDK, etc) and they gave Shutter Island a respectable score of 81 and yet it got shut out of the nominations list. Unless the Academy's love for Scorsese trumps what all these critics are saying I'm thinking now that it won't make a showing at the big dance. Guess it was just released too early and has been long forgotten.

The list can be found here- http://www.bfca.org/ccawards/2010.php

Aside from no Shutter Island I would have liked to have seen Inception down for Best Ensemble and HP7 for cinematography, art direction, and original score…but otherwise some really excellent choices. Loved seeing the recognition for The Town and Inception with 10 noms.

I was curious what exactly the whole spread was for the Best Pic nominees, so I went through and tabulated. The BFCA really know how to spread the love, lol.

Black Swan- 12 noms
True Grit- 11 noms
The King’s Speech- 11 noms
Inception- 10 noms
The Social Network- 9 noms
127 Hours- 8 noms
The Fighter- 6 noms
The Town- 5 noms
Toy Story 3- 5 noms
Winter’s Bone- 4 noms

If it were me I'd replace Winter's Bone with Shutter Island in that 10th slot. Looking forward to seeing what the fuss is about Black Swan.

Re: Oscars 2011

Yay for Toy Story 3 ! Glad it got some nominations. 127 Hours looks like it'll be a good movie, so it's nice to see that it got nominated. And The Fighter, I'm glad that one got nominated too -- it certainly deserves it -- at least from what I've seen so far via the previews.

Re: Oscars 2011

I have a lot of guesses and hopes, but my main one is that Helena Bonham Carter better win the Oscar for "The King's Speech"...She was nominated just once for "The Wings Of The Dove" (Which is amazing, by the way) in '97, and lost out.

She's done so much wonderful work (sadly, anything away from Tim Burton and HP never gets the publicity it deserves) and truly has earned it by now.

Best Original Song - Motion Picture
Bound to You
Burlesque
Coming Home
Country Strong
I See the Light
Tangled
There's a Place for Us
Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
You Haven't Seen the Last of Me
Burlesque

Best Original Score - Motion Picture
Alexandre Desplot
The King's Speech
Danny Elfman
Alice in Wonderland
A.R. Rahmin
127 Hours
Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross
The Social Network
Hans Zimmer
Inception
  



No Town (other then Renner's nod), No acting nominations for Inception, and no Best Score nom for DH. Instead they gave Desplat's nom for The King's Speech. Now is that score really THAT good or is just an obligatory nomination cause of the quality of the film as a whole?

BTW, what the heck is up with those comedy/musical nominations?!

The Kids Are All Right for Best Ensemble?! You gotta be kidding me...over The Town, Inception, or Shutter Island? No way...TKAAR just has a few great performances; it's not a whole cast effort. If Up in the Air didn't get nominated last year there's no way in hell this should have. And I'm shocked at the Andrew Garfield snub for supporting actor! Easily the best I've seen this year and definitely better then Ruffalo

There's much more I could complain about, but I'll leave it that for now...

Re: Oscars 2011

I've given up on following the Oscars and caring what is chosen because I think they got it wrong for so many years. I last time I agreed with their decision was when Crash (2004) won Best picture. Before that The Aviator should have won. Fellowship and The Two Towers should have won in their respective years, and the Academy got it terribly wrong when The Departed, No Country for Old Men, Slumdog Millionaire, and The Hurt Locker took the top prizes.

Re: Oscars 2011

Let's just hope Oscars don't follow suit...with all the great films/performances this year it'd be a shame if some of these alternates get in.

For instance, Mark Ruffalo for The Kids Are Alright...seriously? Yes, he's a good actor, but heck he was better in Shutter Island then TKAA.

I also didn't think Duvall was THAT great in Get Low and he's had more then enough recognition in the past so let's spread the love a bit.

Sure, Robert Duvall is a legend...but I can think of at least three names more deserving of a Best Actor nom in this highly competitive year.

Oh, Ruffalo will get a nod for The Kids Are All Right, he's been a frontrunner for that for a while.
