    Of the nine choices above what unseen film (or unseen by terms of audiences, not necessarily critics) will have the biggest impact on the Oscar race?

    I like your threads, but I have noticed that you usually start them in the wrong sub-forum.  For example, this is in the “General Discussion: All Non-Award Topics” section when it would be more appropriate for it to be in “Oscars, Golden Globes and Film Awards” or “Polls! Polls! Who Should Give Back Their Oscar?”

    Yeah, I know. I always forget that. I have been getting better at putting them in the right thread.

    Her will be the arthouse hit of the year. It will get the same nods that Amour did (except FL film and obviously swapped with actor/actress). Sup actress is also possible as N’yongo seems to be the only strong frontrunner so far.

    Walter Mitty has mediocre reviews, and it isn’t like this a Stephen Daldry + Kate Winslet film where everybody involved is mega-respected from the star to the cinematographer.

    Llewyn Davis is quite interesting as critics have been overwhelmingly positive towards it but those who have seen it here are less enthusiastic and actually sorta dislike the film.

    I wonder if some of that may reaction may come from some of the posters here being a little more averse to the Coens than critics/bloggers in general. Not sure about Baby Clyde’s general feelings, but Scottferguson has made it clear that he’s not a fan of how they treat their characters (even disliking Fargo as a result). Daniel Montgomery and Tom O’Neil seemed to have a more positive response to it, though, so it seems like the film is just going to be a case of fulfilling the tastes of Coen fans more than any sort of broad audience (though music fans will probably be taken by it as well, as Renaton has noted several times).

    I have this sneaking feeling that the Oscars will really dig Llewyn more than other critics awards. It seems right up their alley, and the fact that The Coen brothers are directing it doesn’t hurt their chances.
