    Last post by moi. Please continue….

    Brad and Ange couldnt hide their disappointment last night at the Globes. It was written on their faces and in their body language, At this point I dont think either of them are that hopeful for a SAG win, but I cant rule Brad out of the race . After all, Adrien Brody lost SAG and GG, won the NFSCA, which Brad also won this year. If/when he does lose SAG, that’s a mirror image of what happened to Brody. Not that that means anything, but it’s worth noting.

    I guess we’ll see what happens, but imo, Brad isnt out of this race.

    I don’t see Brad winning now, its definitely Jean vs Clooney. The difference is Clooney is in Bullock’s position; he’s America’s most beloved sweetheart.

    I just want – different from everyone – a nomination for DiCaprio

    and I’ll be glad if Clooney doesn’t win again.

    I now think Clooney is ahead of the pack, but I’m still not underestimating Pitt and Dujardin who are just behind by a hair to Clooney.

    I thought Dujardin was a great find for this role and captured a pleasant John Gilbert type essence aided by those expressive eye brows.  Quite deliteful for the most part. And quite wondrous against Bejo who in my eyes was miscast. Didn’t for a second believe her as a leading lady of the silent era. But Dujardin winning an Oscar for this? It would be a rare feat, particularly for a virtual unknown, French actor, who has won no US critics awards – except for Phoenix. He placed 3rd at NSFC & NYFCC. Didn’t place at LA I believe.

    I fear if this happens it might be perceived as another Roberto Benigni style win – a gimmick. To Dujardin’s credit, he’s not leaping off of chairs as he wins awards. Although that may be because he hasn’t won much yet. Whilst at the Globes, he was seeing doing dog tricks with Uggie during The Artist’s best pic speech. If he wins the best actor oscar, I hope he at least has the decency to cart wheel up to the stage in order to keep the tradition of buffoonery alive when unknown leading men European actors win!

    I still haven’t watched the film, but now it actually has a premiere date here (February 10th). With Pitt losing support, I think it will be Dujardin. I believe that, very soon, there will be interviews and profiles in the media with him. And I can see him winning SAG more than Clooney. The Actors Guild is one that likes these kind of dynamic performances, and the fact that is a silent film will actually help him (as that means he has to be very expressive for his performance and the film to work). I can really see him winning this.

    It’ll be interesting to see DiCaprio vs. Oldman, now that Gary Oldman got the BAFTA nomination over Leo. I’d like to see Oldman get the nod as I didn’t think Leo’s performance was very special.

    *Still praying for the mother of all shockers: Michael Shannon sneaks in there*

    Clooney is definitely the frontrunner, IMO. Seems like it’s “his time”, though I’d prefer Brad Pitt to pull the upset.

    Yes, because Americans know to treat acting as the dignified profession it is, one step above stripping and pole dancing.

    Lol I’ve always wondered, how does one become a ‘most beloved sweetheart’?

    I just saw Moneyball again and I thought there were some parts in Brad’s performance that were annoying. He kept doing this thing with his mouth that he did in Inglorious Basterds that pissed me off lol. But he was still amazing as a whole in the film.

    A nice cover story about Fassbender in the Hollywood Reporter. Possibly quite well timed? When are final oscar ballots due? http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/michael-fassbender-shirtless-full-frontal-nudity-shame-x-men-george-clooney-282871
