    Let’s just talk about how nice it is to see Naomi Watts recognized for Birdman. She was my favorite supporting performer in that film!

    I wonder why Selma is losing steam? I’ll be seeing it this weekend to decide for myself…. Naomi Watts was my favorite in Birdman as well; still would have preferred Rene Russo though. Essie Davis in The Babadook is a surprise….

    It helps that she’s Australian. They nominated Joel Edgerton and Geoffrey Rush last year. They even gave Jacki Weaver the win for Silver Linings Playbook.

    This is a GOOD line-up and better than BAFTA. 

    Seen Birdman half asleep and Watts >>> Stone. 

    AACTA >>> BAFTA as Acting Predictor for Oscars, I presume.

    bump . . . any predictions?

     

    We might see some surprises. AACTA chose Gravity over 12 Years a Slave last year. They also picked Chiwetel Ejiofor over Matthew McConaughey, Michael Fassbender over Jared Leto, and Jennifer Lawrence over Lupita Nyong’o.

    I think Naomi Watts could score here, even though Patricia looks unbeatable right now. Afterall, she’s worked with Inarritu before and got an Oscar nod for it. That would be a huge upset.

    They loved the Babadook, so perhaps Essie Davis can take a run at Julianne?

    Looks to me like the race for Oscar between Birdman and Boyhood, with the edge going to the former.

    Should be interesting.

    Wow they do love their cool films. Last year they went for Gravity, and now Birdman, both definitely with the “cool” factor.
