I believe that there’s a 500 post limit on these threads, so I started another one. Enjoy!Miss FrostMemberJoinedSep 14th, 2011Total Topics47Posts4254January 21, 2013 at 7:09 pm #87907
I wonder who’s going to win the SAG. I think if SLP wins ensemble they won’t feel any need to give DeNiro a veteran first time win, so I believe Tommy Lee Jones or Arkin will take it.January 21, 2013 at 7:30 pm #87908
I think Tommy Lee Jones. Wasn’t it Cate Blanchett who was the presumed frontrunner for The Aviator, then kept losing? She finally won the SAG and then Oscar. Perhaps Jones will do the same. If not Jones, it’s going to De Niro, Arkin or Hoffman- thank you!CanadianFanParticipantJoinedJul 23rd, 2012Total Topics35Posts3726January 21, 2013 at 8:37 pm #87909
I think SLP will surprise a lot of people at SAG.
DeNiro, Lawrence and the movie will win as it has a special appeal for actors.RenatonMemberJoinedJun 4th, 2011Total Topics18Posts7711January 22, 2013 at 5:44 am #87910
I doubt it. I think it will take emsemble, and that’s it (and even that isn’t a sure thing with the competition it has). Maybe De Niro will win Supporting Actor as default simply for being De Niro, but how long did it take Meryl Streep to win a SAG again? SLP is very well positioned, but I don’t think it’s that strong to the point of pulling off three victories in one night.Daniel VazParticipantJoinedJan 19th, 2012Total Topics6Posts131January 22, 2013 at 11:40 am #87911
Leonardo DiCaprio was totally robbed. He deserves to be nominated and win!ENGLANDParticipantJoinedOct 5th, 2011Total Topics13Posts1401January 22, 2013 at 12:15 pm #87912
After finally watching Django fully, I do not get all the love Leo has gotten. He did not deserve a nod for his performance if you ask me. Waltz was great but nothing compared to his performance in “Basterds.” Sam Jackson was my favorite character in the film and I thought if anyone deserve to be nominated from the film it was him and Kerry Washington.AroundUMemberJoinedOct 30th, 2012Total Topics0Posts487January 22, 2013 at 12:27 pm #87913
I did prefer Waltz in I.B but again he was outstanding. Leo was totally robbed, He bought so much to Django. I do not support TLJs nod, was totally baffled to why he was getting buzz after watching Lincoln. As of now I’m rooting for De Niro. Still need to see Argo and The Master.January 22, 2013 at 12:27 pm #87914
I’m just curious- how was Samuel L. Jackson superior to Leonardo DiCaprio? DiCaprio was playing a different type of role, def against type. Jackson was basically playing himself- the whole Pulp Fiction/Shaft/Snakes on a Plane ordeal with lots of cursing and Jacksonisms. I understand that can be funny, but this was a cake walk for him to do in my viewing, at least.dannyboy.ParticipantJoinedOct 11th, 2010Total Topics5Posts1699January 22, 2013 at 12:32 pm #87915
Leo’s character was just so ridiculous.. Jackson’s character ended up surprising me with an odd but new perspective on how someone in his position could have thought and felt. It was risky, and in your face, but I appreciated it. Leo DiCaprio in DJango = Brad Pitt in IB (imo), just felt like he was from a completely different film.ENGLANDParticipantJoinedOct 5th, 2011Total Topics13Posts1401January 22, 2013 at 12:36 pm #87916
Leo seemed so fake to me. He tried something different but it did not work for me. Sam did his usual cursing but he pulled this one off and he added something different. Also this is one of the first times we see Samuel taking orders from others which is different. If Leo and Waltz would have switch roles then yes, but I do understand that Quentin did not want Waltz to play the same character again.January 22, 2013 at 12:39 pm #87917
I despised Leo’s acting in Revolutionary Road- both him and Kate Winslet seemed like they were performing a bad high school play. So glad the academy didn’t fall for it.
Often DiCaprio comes off like he’s projecting to a live audience and yes, sometimes he can come off mimicky and unrealistic, but I still found him to be superb in Django. Oh well, different strokes for differnt folks.RenatonMemberJoinedJun 4th, 2011Total Topics18Posts7711January 22, 2013 at 1:31 pm #87918
Jackson was totally not playing himself. How is the bad dynamic motherfucker the same thing as a house slave? He played the subserviant and ignorant role very well. I do not associate taht performance with Pulp Fiction and Jackie brown at all.GabrielParticipantJoinedJul 10th, 2012Total Topics2Posts2729January 22, 2013 at 1:56 pm #87919
Samuel L. Jackson was terrific in Django Unchained. He has a remarkable ability to get into character and become a completely different person. His roles in Jackie Brown and Django, for example, couldn’t be any more different.
It would have been great to see him get nominated, but oh well…babypookParticipantJoinedNov 4th, 2010Total Topics106Posts14278January 22, 2013 at 3:02 pm #87920
