    How did it happen that Allen’s film that is considered as one of the strong Oscar candidantes (for nom) this year doesn’t have a thread?Anyway,I opened it 

    I personally hold my fingers for “Midnight in Paris” and Allen as he’s one of my favourite directors.

    It had a lengthy thread on the old site. This one didn’t become the go-to one until a few weeks ago.

    Thanks Spartak. This film, is still probably my favorite released this year. It’ll definitely make my top five to ten, that’s for sure.

    Let’s add:

    Costume Design
    Art Direction
    Score

    Fingers crossed for SAG ensemble. At least a nom. That would be great, imo.

    I don’t think Adrien Brody has much of a chance. I think the film’s best supporting-actor hope is Corey Stoll as Ernest Hemingway. I loved that performance.

    I wouldn’t rule out cinematography. The DP is a previous Oscar nominee who also shot Seven among other very distinctive films.

    I actually think (sight unseen) this film is a serious candidate to win BP, particularly if a consensus candidate doesn’t come along.

    Sight seen, it is a very good Woody film…..I dont think it has a shot of winning anything other than the usual Woody original screenplay award….I’ve seen it twice, enjoyed it more the first time

    I can watch my 3 favorite woody films over and over and with each viewing , these 3 get even more enjoyable for me

    I don’t think this will bee a serious threat to win Best Picture. Even if no consensus candidate I think there will be more likely options. I have a hunch that after all the premature attention for Eastwood and Spielberg dies down, either “The Artist” or “The Descendants” will emerge as the favorite.

    I’d put both of them ahead. But with preferential voting – particularly with likely fewer, maybe far fewer nominees for BP – a film that gets some #1 votes and then a lot of 2s and 3s has a real chance of winning, and my guess is that MiP might easily have the most top 3 votes.

    One of these years the system is going to work to have a film that isn’t one of the frontrunners win. Since in the first two years of preferential voting it has been perceived as a 2 film race, it hasn’t happened. But a year, as this one could be, with a more divided field, a consensus favorite will have a better chance.

    I am not rooting for it – as I said, I haven’t seen it yet. Just my objective analysis.

    It’ll be a filler Best Picture and possibly Best Director nominee. Way too light and too short to be competitive, even if the rest of these movies disappoint. It may be intellectual fluff, but it’s still fluff. If it did win BP by some stroke of the AntiGod, it would be the best weakest winner since Crash.

    Yeah,I can’t see it winning…I’m quite sure that screenplay nom. is locked.The films is exellent,but somehow I don’t think that it’s enough to be a Best Film of the year.Allen also deserves best director nom and if it’s more then 5 nom for BP,the film has to be in,otherwise it’s a shame…I can’t see it getting any other nom.,not talking about awards…It’s not kind of film (deserves) that wins BP.
    BTW,Adrien Brody,I have seen “Detachment” (new film from Tony Kaye),unfortunately even if it gets premiered on time it doesn’t have enough buzz to get a nom (Brody and cinematography were awesome).

    Detachment was premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last April (meaning it likely was rejected by Cannes). It failed to find any real US distribution deal.

    It is being released in the US next February including a simultaneous video on demand availability by Tribeca Films as a service deal.

    I do see that Brody got some got reviews from this, but that wasn’t enough to garner any interest.

    Ya. I’d say the film has the same chance as “Winter’s Bone” did last year. Both relatively small films with great perfs; one deadly serious, the other whimsical and light.

    Cant have whimsical and light (I’d never call it fluffy) winning BP too often.

    Agreed re the film and it’s iconic director. Likely wont win and may even miss the major nods, depending on how things line up.
    Likely very few voters using crayons to mark the “X”; , even if they are van Gogh montages, will think of this film come Oscar time.
