    Big Short is gaining momentum.

    In for Picture, Screenplay and Editing definitely.

    Maybe Supporting Actor for Bale?

    Haynes is not a lock for Director- maybe McKay gets in? And the most unlikely but can Carell get in with Leo, Cranston, Redmayne and Fassbender?

    I have Carell in.  He did get in at the Globes though, unlike Cooper.

    I dont have him in now, but he does have a good shot of getting in. But if he wins the Globe, I will start predicting him

    Steve Carell is a terrible actor, and his “Foxcatcher” nomination is one of the worst in Oscar history. So let’s hope not. Also “The Big Short” isn’t that strong. The Golden Globe is hardly important. Steve Carell has a BFCA Comedy Actor, and a Golden Globe Comedy Actor nomination and that’s more than enough.

    It is very true that it has gained some momentum, but it’s hardly as buzzed as any of the big contenders, or new contenders ala Star Wars. I would say that it’s not going to recieve any Oscar nominations, but it can pretty much win some Globes.

    I’m predicting Carell for this. Every review says the standout of the whole cast is Carell. He provides the moral center, and has the emotional moments. I disagree with you Vincelette, I think Carells performance in Foxcatcher was one of the best of last year. I think the academy is starting to take notice of him and I think he’ll get a surprise nomination.

    Bale I don’t think will get in. Sure he got the SAG nomination, but we all know how screwed up those nominations were. Bale was nominated at the globes but thats in the comedy catagory which is weak, and I can see Carell winning the globe. Depp’s one-note performance has died down, Concussion has mixed reviews, and I just don’t see Cranston getting in for Trumbo. It’s too hammy. Most people agree Carell’s performance in The Big Short is great, and I’m sure they’ll want to nominate at least one performance from the film, so I think it’ll be his.

    Guys, do not sleep on The Big Short.  Even if Best Picture only had five nominees, it would get in.  It has good reviews (81 on Metacritic), an A-list cast, an A grade from CinemaScore and it has already yielded the second-highest per-theatre average of the year.  This is going to do well at the box office.  And it has already done well in the precursor awards, with the SAG ensemble nomination, Los Angeles editing win and four Globe nominations.  Commerical success plus critical success plus awards success plus plum Oscar release date plus Oscar-friendly subject matter with an Oscar-friendly cast?  How is that not a perfect recipe for Oscar success?  The only thing that it has going against it is that it came out so late that users here and pundits had already made their predictions, which is not a real thing.  Remember how that guy who won the predictions contest two years ago had only logged his first predictions of the season the night before the nominations came out?  He did not have to “make space” for late-surging contenders; he just put them in and it will be the same thing with Oscar voters.  They do not update their ballots over several months.  The Big Short is this Oscars’ American Sniper for Gold Derby.

    Carell’s performance in Foxcatcher was revelatory. He crushed it. So full of self-loathing and mental decay, far better than Bradley Cooper was. However, I’ve heard he’s a thin lead for Big Short, which absolutely is coming on strong. I’d say its going to steal Steve Jobs’ Adapted Screenplay spot and it’s goign to be a solid pick for Picture.

    @ thedemonhog: I can’t see The Big Short before Oscar noms come out, but I’m wondering what you think its chances are in Best Director?

    Watched The Big Short – really enjoyed it, especially Steve Carell’s performance. Completely sold me into a serious character. 8/10!

    Sophisticated yet accessible, “The Big Short” is an audacious look at the economic meltdown and features a scene-stealing Steve Carell

    I’ll invest in a subprime mortgage if it means Steve Carell wins an Oscar for The Big Short

    #TheBigShort is great! A little complicated to follow but Steve Carell does a terrific job. He should be nominated for an #Oscar.

    Christian Bale gave an award worthy performance but Steve Carell gives the dramatic performance of his career

    Saw The Big Short yest. Think Steve Carell is new Tom Hanks – began career as funnyman, going to be remembered as great serious actor

    @LarsenOnFilm @filmspotting a friend worked w/Eisman and says, if anything, Carell’s performance is a toned down version of the real guy
