Matthew McConaughey will probably win best actor just for the drastic change he made for that roll lol
Sorry Leonardo, maybe next year lol!
Captain Phillips gets best writing Oscar because it is so fictiony I guess? Not many of the actual people involved with that episode that agree with the Hollywood version. Wolf of Wall Street, as crazy as that movie is, is less fiction than Captain Phillips if we were to listen to the people involved.
Adapted Screenplay Oscars are based on the strength of the script not how close it stayed to the source material generally.
Not that I ever had much faith in the Academy anyway, but if American Hustle wins Best Picture I will probably murder a kitten. That movie was boring as fuck. Which is what the Academy looks for now that I think about it, so I had better get my kitten ready.
no fast and the furious or This is the End? i am disappoint
i think the only movie i've seen out of all of those is Gravity I don't wanna watch 480p screeners!
I dont think I saw a single movie nominated for an Oscar. Those movies are just not interesting for me.
Not saying anything about relative quality, but Captain Phillips' and The Butler's weak showings reinforce that Ocasr Bait-y movies should only premiere in December.
And to reiterate, to a large degree the Oscars are about voting blocks, and the Brits threw everything behind Philomena.
When it comes to the technical categories though, I have no clue how the blocks break down. Lone Ranger over Pacific Rim in Visual Effects? Err, what?
He won't for this year but I hope Di Caprio gets an oscar one day
The guy turned out to be an amazing actor
He didn't even get nominated for that slave master role he played, he's doomed
I am curious to see which will win best Cinematography. The Grandmaster is very impressive (but possibly suffers from not having enough voters that saw it), Gravity is groundbreaking and that car sequence by night in Prisoners just blew my mind. It's not exactly like it's the first movie with cars during the night, but somehow I never saw something like that before. Blew my mind. So I guess Inside Lewyn Davis will win... or Nebraska since I did not see it!
Pacific Rim visual fx snub is a wtf, but Gravity is going to win regardless.
I think Bruce Dern takes the best actor oscar. They'll treat it as kind of a lifetime achievement award. He's always been one of those guys that was always a supporting actor, or had an odd bit part in a movie, but other actors and directors absolutely love the guy, and never really got a chance to shine as a leading man while in his prime.
His career arc reminds me a bit of Steve Buschemi. Ton of interesting roles, always makes a movie or an individual scene better, but just a little too odd to really be leading man material in Hollywood
those nominations are mostly bullshit, cant believe hanks got snubbed after 2 great performances last year. i stopped watching the oscars years and years ago because of this and because its boring as fuck, but damn, at some point they gotta get some good people on their committee. i love me some sandra bullock, but her role in gravity was not that great, she basically reprised her role in Speed. Cuaron and the cinematography deserve awards, but bullock? nah, she is a cutie, but her acting sucks a lot of the time.
Well, wasn't expecting Prisoners to make any of the lists because it's not an Academy type of film so good to see it got nominated for at least cinematography.
I haven't seen that film yet, but I bet it wins. The buzz is ridiculous on that film, and too many people are talking about it.
It's the kind of film the Academy typically picks as best picture.
It's not a shame piece anyways, if people feel shamed into going its on them. Its more like Mandingo which I said in the thread for it which is fine but I didn't feel shame seeing or or shame to force me to go to it. It will win best Picture, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will win best actor unless they decide to give it to Dern for some reason, but the majority of the Oscars will be swallowed up by other movies like Director, Cinematography, Editing will probably go to Gravity (and yes regardless what you think of the movie on the whole it was a technical marvel and the lackluster screenplay was elevated by a very good directing job), Captain Phillips for supporting actor and adapted, hustle for supporting actress and original screenplay, etc.
Its a good movie but there was enough GOOD movies this year for the Oscars to be split up pretty well.

I wish the Oscars were less artsy and more fartsy. Actually I don't give a shit at all about the Oscars, they mean nothing.
They are still important to the industry, particularly upcoming actors, writers and directors. Don't underestimate the promotional value of a relative unknown being able to draw audiences because they have nomination and awards. They may not mean anything to you but the general public will still be more interested in seeing movies with academy awards attached then not.
It's not that I haven't seen half of the movies on that best picture list, it's that I'm not even aware that they exist outside of that best pictures list. Dallas Buyers Club? Her? Philomena? These were giant movies that I shouldn't have missed?
I'm not saying that they're not. I obviously haven't seen them. This is the first I'm even aware of them at all. Either I'm utterly out of touch (which I am) or some of that shine is wearing thin on good old hollywood.
Or you could try to branch out of your comfort zone, and realize the world doesn't revolve around your local Cinemaplex..
Oscar's has always had nominated films that are not only shown in wide release but also in limited release.
The only thing this board has going for it is a the wide diversity in it's movie aficionados unfortunately it is a constant war against the non cultured nerds that this boards heavily supports.

Think we still have Nebraska, American Hustle, and Rush to watch. We may skip Philomena and Capt Phillips, neither look at all interesting to me.
Oh actually I haven't even looked. Just assumed it was out there, hah. Looks like we'll be skipping that one too unless something changes in the next month.
Here are the Oscar winners for Best Picture for the last 25-30 years (spoilered for size)
I've seen 16 of those, so not too bad, but it seems like pre 2000 it seemed to pick more popular movies. Still can't judge it too harshly, seems to be a decent mix of popular vs critically acclaimed and the only one that irks me being on that list is Crash, maybe Dances with Wolves.
I feel kinda old though for not having watched a single winner since 2007. I've got rips of em all, just never gotten around to watching em.

2003 must have been shit for movies if Return of the King won
I still need to see a bunch of the contenders this year. I've heard Dallas Buyers Club, 12 Years A Slave, and Nebraska are really good. Heard generally positive, but mixed, things about American Hustle and Wolf of Wall Street.
Old Boy, Kill Bill Vol 1, Lost in Translation are 2003.
As for 2003, RoTK beat out Lost In Translation, Mystic River, Master and Commander and Seabiscuit. Many felt that one of the previous two probably deserved it more (Two Towers in particular) so this was their reward for making 3 great movies, personally I enjoyed Lost in Translation MORE, but it was purely due to Murray (who was also robbed that year)
I'd prefer to have the Acting Oscars go to actors I can't stand. Let the Oscar curse take care of them ad force 'em into making more Snow Dogs movies.
Wow, how did rush not get nominated for shit. Easily one of my favorite movies last year. The guy who played lauda was incredible

Watched Her, Wolf of Wallstreet, and Dallas Buyers Club over this last week. Her blew my mind, Wolf of Wallstreet was alright, and Dallas Buyers Club put me to sleep. Pretty shit movie. Matthew McConaughey sucked his character straight out of Christian Bale's cock.
I think 12 Years A Slave will get the best picture, director and actor. I liked Wolf of Wall Street, and Gravity was amazing to look at, but 12 Years will stay with me a while.
THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING
LOST IN TRANSLATION
MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD
That's a pretty legit list. I think The Hobbit movies have clouded your memories that the franchise was once groundbreaking. Return of the King won 11 Oscars that year.

No nomination for Rush is a shame and enough of a reason to not watch the ceremony this year again. I will prolly switch channels after the red carpet show (watching out for slip ups) as usual.
Also Gravity for Director and Cinematography imho.
Regarding Crash... wasnt that the movie who just beeing released still tanked during the award season and they decided to throw it an oscar just for box office reasons (and the whole lotta cast didnt get a lol flop movie actor slashing)? Think that was the one, seen on free tv and i couldnt grasp this pos even getting a nomination.
I don't think they "threw it an oscar for box office reasons". It's not like the studios pick the Oscars. It was just a self-righteous anti-racism movie and that sort of shit sells with hollywood douche bags. It's the same reason that Argo won last year (not that it was as bad as crash), make the movie industry the hero of the movie and suprise!, the movie industry loves it.

It won because the voters couldn't get themselves to vote for a movie like Brokeback Mountain in 2005.

I think the best movie I've seen this year is Dallas Buyers Club, though I seriously doubt it will take best pic.
i dunno why people like gay movies.
Kind of disappointed Zimmer didn't even get a nod for Man of Steel score, I thought it was excellent.
Red carpet time. Let's talk about fashion and all the pretty dresses!!
mmm my celebrity collections are about to grow.
It is going to frustrate me if 12 Years wins best picture. It just wasn't a great movie. Parts were 'tough' to watch, so edgy, but that was it. Lupita did a better job at creating a character than Chiwetel did and I wouldn't object to her winning supporting actress although I'd love to see June Squibb win also.
are any of you guys actually going to watch the horrible awards ceremony? i just check drudge every year and laugh over what political bullshit they awarded as best of that year.
Wow, I am agreeing with something astro said in the movie house. Yet another fucking award ceremony so Hollywood can pat itself on the back. I don't understand how people can get so into this.
You're not into knowing "who" an actress is wearing? WTF is wrong with you.
Yep, he deserved it. Finally got around to watching that movie, and while it didn't suit my tastes, he deserved it over the rest of the field.
why am i watching a lesbo host show.
bro, Oscar chooses talents like H..Hale..Halle Berry. It had nothing to do wi..with her skin color.
Oh man this is going to be one giant aids commercial
Frozen wins, shock to noone. Can't believe what happened to Kim Novak, she used to be good looking back when she did Vertigo
frozen beating out wind rises is a crime against mankind and taste.
It looked like a shit load of botched plastic surgery, more then just being 80
emma watson damnnn. so fine.
what the fuck is this atrocious song.
Just be happy he isn't playing a ukulele or something even more hipster.
"...in the present case it is similarly necessary to renounce a freedom that does not exist, and to recognize a dependence of which we are not conscious." - War and Peace
when did oscar turn into a zoo.
I said the exact same thing to my wife when they walked out.
Turned it on just in time to see Ellen taking pictures with that giant phone. This is retarded.
Good on Bill for that Ramis shout out
Another vote for McConaughey, not usually a fan but he put in the work for that role.
Sorry but American Hustle sucked balls, ending and therefore everything leading up to it was totally forgettable.
I would give Wolf best movie.
Does it bother anyone else how inconsistent these things are? They make great actors put in years of blood sweat and tears and then a casting director picks some no name that just fits the part and they give them an oscar.
Usually its a no name minority playing a minority or an old person playing an old person. It severely rustles my jimmies.
Leto won Best Supporting Actor...that literally was all of the fucks that I had to give regarding the Oscars this year.
