    What were the “purported” and on its “inception” Oscar-Bait Roles, Performances and Film Projects that were Totally a Bust, Ignored and Went Nowhere during the Awards Season.

    Potentially this year, it could happen to Serena and for its lead stars Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper.

    My Top-of-Mind was 2006 remake of All The King’s Men starring Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Anthony Hopkins, Mark Ruffalo, Patricia Clarkson, James Gandolfini, Jackie Earle Haley, etc…  Meryl Streep was supposed to take Patricia Clarkson’s part but had scheduling conflict with The Devil Wears Prada (Sweeney Todd was the other one Streep declined as well) and “dodge a bullet”.

    Although Streep had in 1993 for The House of the Spirits.

    What were yours ???

    I know it’s not the worst example, but last year’s Unbroken was a huge flop awards-wise. I didn’t hate the movie, but there were some big issues with it. I was one of the ones predicting it in all the categories early on, but it was such a massive disappointment.

    Hitchcock comes to mind. That movie came and went like it never existed.

    ‘Never Let Me Go’ I recall had some people thinking early on that it was a Best Picture front-runner, and many thought it would be Carey Mulligan’s second nomination and possibly her first win, but it went on to receive zero nominations (I myself liked it quite a lot).

    Sometimes I still think that movie got its deserved Best Score nomination for Rachel Portman.

    The Fifth Estate with Benedict Cumberbatch. Alot of Best Actor talk for that fizzled quickly.

    I don’t think there is a better example of this than “Evening.”

    Why is this something to be proud of? Penguins has been out since November and made better numbers.

    We Need To Talk About Kevin. Kind of flame out quickly, never picked up momentum.     

    a bunch of Matt Damon movies: We Bought A Zoo, Promised Land, The Good Shephered… all sounded good on paper… but went nowhere…

    Burn After Reading. Totally ignored by Oscar and SAG.

    White Oleander— a really good movie that didn’t really get the awards attention it deserved.

    Another Michelle Pfeffier movie; Cheri also went bust.

    Did anyone else get a little embarrased reading all those titles? This thread has no mercy.
