    This lineup would make me extremely happy, although Nebraska hasnt made it to my area yet.  Yes, I’m biased.

    This is wide, wide open this year. Best film could easily be one of 12 Yrs, Gravity or Inside Llewyn Davis – I don’t think there is a favorite. A film/director split would be no surprise. I think Blanchett wins actress, actor could be any of several people, supporting also full of contenders.
    This will be an interesting initial test of how sincere the raves were for 12 Yrs were – critics groups often sort out the true feelings (see under Tree of Life a couple years ago, which didn’t fare nearly as well as its reviews suggested). 

    I’m going to guess Great Beauty prevails for FL over Blue and The Past.

    Based on previous years, we should know by around noon PT/3 ET on Tuesday.

    #12YeasASlave will probably sweep, all indications lead to that. Would be VERY surprising if both NY, LA & National Board of Review sideline it. Very unlikely.

    I am curious what you mean by “all indications.” Gravity’s reviews are as strong, ILD’s might end up being the same. Gravity was huge on the Sight & Sound and Cahiers du cinema critic surveys (different critics). 12 Yrs has won nothing yet.

    To me, indications suggest a very divided year from the three main critics weeks and no film sweeping. Perhaps 12 Yrs does prevail – it wouldn’t be a big surprise – but if so, for me it is not remotely a done deal.

    Remember, critics’ groups, unlike the Oscars, rarely feel pressure to do what they are “supposed” to do for image purposes.

    I didn’t realize these were so soon. This is going to be really interesting, because things could go many different ways.

    Hopefully we’ll see some interesting names get recognized. For Actress I think Blanchett will probably win, but I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if they go for Adele Exarchopoulos, Brie Larson or Greta Gerwig, or even really under the radar contenders, such as Andrea Riseborough or Suzanne Clement (I wish!)

    For Actor, I think it’ll be one of Dern, Redford, Oscar Isaac or Joaquin Phoenix (assuming they’ve seen Her).

    Supporting Actress: June Squibb, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson or Lea Seydoux.

    Supporting Actor: No idea! Barkhad Abdi maybe?

    I’m not even going to attempt to predict Film or Director.

    Scott, i’m basing my hunch solely on promo/buzz that far exceeds Best of Lists that still has to infiltrate the mass media and make an impact. (Far fetched, i know).

    I think it’s safe to say a rapturous response from Festivals (+ universal praise) and the Audience Award from the Toronto film festival has more of an impact than critics Best of Lists and huge box office success initially (This is in terms of Gravity). Those factors burn though the media faster than Best of Lists. (Look at Silver Linings Playbook).

    So i’m just guessing. Like you just said, Critics groups are always difficult to predict. Thay almost always lean their own way, sometimes pushing unlikely contenders to the forefront and giving them a much needed boost. And that’s what i love about them.

    They could go totally left field, or they could follow the stream. I don’t know.

    But for now, 12YearsASlave has the deafening “frontrunner” buzz, coupled with a narritive and subject matter that cannot be ignored.

    So yes. 12YearsASlave it is.
