    I think the odds are fairly good that ScottFerguson gets at least half his wish and that Amour figures prominently here, for one of its’ actors….

    Hope so – resaw the movie, and this long-time Haneke non-enthusiast remains totally won over by the film. These two performances are for me by far the best of the year.

    Those who are closer to inside than me keep saying The Master will win here, and possibly win other awards. I’m not convinced, but  those making guesses should be aware of that.

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you, as surprising as that may seem to both of us. Esp me. Lol. I know what it’s like to feel passionately about a film/perf/project….even though I wish to GAWD Haneke would retire and stay retired.

    I just watched Amour last night. Those performances are GREAT (kinda mad there is all this talk for Riva but none for Trintignant. Either nominate both or neither) but man, that was a hard film to watch. Especially the end.

    I have no idea what the love for “Amour” was all about. The screening I went to was not well received with tepid applause and many people not staying for the Q&A. The film is wrenching and hard to watch plus it’s incredibly slow and plodding… That said, Emmanuelle Riva was pretty amazing. She’s in 6th place for me of the Actress contenders though (after Chastain, Cotillard, Lawrence, Watts and Mirren)… When it comes to Oscars, I think it really only has three shots (Foreign Film, Screenplay and Actress).

    Their recent choices in Best Actress suggest Emmanuelle Riva should easily win.

    If ZD30 wins here as well, that will symbolize the last spiky nail into the coffin of 2012.

    Rooting for The Master, since Cloud Atlas, Beast, Bernie, Looper, The Intouchables, etc, are out.

    Joaquin
    The Master
    Spielberg
    Riva

    Do you mean that it’ll be a lock for Best Picture? Yeah right. Critics awards mean very little in the grand scheme of the Oscar race.

    Does Sally Field have a chance? Considering she won the NYFCC.

    It varies year by year, category by category, but they more often than not mean a lot in the grand scheme of things.

    The Artist would likely not have won last year without winning NY – that legitimized an unlikely contender. Had Hugo won, I suspect it would have won BP.

    The Hurt Locker would never have won with its near sweep – Avatar would have most likely.

    Their influence on nominations is even greater.

    If ZD30 wins BP, I will willingly drink battery acid and dumb myself down by chasing it with tap water. I’m referring to my own feelings about this film winning anything outside of techs and actors. Any other win along the way will cause me to reach for my martini shaker. Not champagne. I’d say it’s at a disadvantage for BP, but it’s unwise to trust in the collective judgement of the voting body.

    And if Les Miserables (if after seeing it I take an informed opinion not liking it) wins, I’ll shrug it off and realize as usual it doesn’t matter in any scheme of things.
