    Which film that has not yet received any nominations from any of the major guilds for their top prize (DGA, WGA, PGA, or SAG ensemble) do you think is most likely to score a nomination for Best Picture?

    It isn’t an impossible task. In fact, several recent titles managed a simliar feat (Winter’s Bone, The Blind Side, The Reader, Letters from Iwo Jima, and Atonement all served as nominees in the last 5 Oscar ceremonies without any guild nominations)

    Looks as if I voted with the majority, so far.

    My Week with Marilyn? With all respect to all who liked it, it would be the worst nomination in Best Picture since The Blind Side.

    I hope “The Tree of Life” gets in, but I’m losing hope as we get closer to the actual nominations. I’ll settle for a director nod for Malick, a few tech nominations, and a win for Lubezki.

    So, in other words, it would be worse than last year’s nominees?

    My Week with Marilyn does not hold a candle to any of the nominees last year. Last year was both strong and diverse in terms of films nominated. Even the dull “True Grit” had some merit.  It was a great year for Oscar films.

    Preferred My Week with Marilyn over The Fighter, 127 Hours, The King’s Speech, The Kids Are All Right, True Grit and maybe even Toy Story 3 and Winter’s Bone (perhaps not the latter).

    Wow.  How The Tree of Life is even on the same list as some of these other films is beyond me.

    I couldnt have predicted this, but now, it’s “The Fighter” that I’ll stop and watch, or put into my DVD, over most of the other films you’ve mentioned. I like it more  than I did last year. Go figure.

    Although, since I’m such a huge Anglophile, I like The King’s Speech even more, Plus, the film will always have a special place with me and a great sense of relief and gratitude, for winning last year.

    As for MWwM, I’m with you. I truly did like this film, ‘fluffy’, ‘slight’, or otherwise, although I’m sure I’m missing a few adjectives applied to it by some. I wouldnt use those terms to describe it.
     Williams, Redmayne, Dench, and the rest of the supporting cast were terrific as well. I’d be ok with the film getting a BP nod.

    Not sure if I’d include MWwM in my favorites of the year (probably not), but I was more captivated by it than the films I listed. (I think Toy Story 3 is quite good, even if it doesn’t really improve on any of the themes it touched on in the previous installments).

    Damnit. Didn’t see TTTS., so voted for Harry Potter. I’ll say that film could get nominated, but on the other hand, BAFTA list came out this week, when voting was already closed.

    So I voted for Harry Potter.
    C’mon if District 9 and The Blind Side could make it in for making money, and Bridesmaids and The Help are being fronted for doing the same, why can’t this film which not only is the highest earner of 2011, but  is One of the most critically acclaimed films of the year get a BP? Also, 

    A BP nod will be enough for me, as frankly I would rather chose other films for Director, Acting (aside from the wonderful Alan Rickman who was heartbreaking), Screenplay categories.

    I think TTSS is building momentum just at the right time
    The BAFTA nominations sure helped, but I think the adapted
    screenplay will get a nom as well as the editing..
    If OLDMAN grabs Leo’s spot..there is a slight chance
    that TTSS can get 5% of the #1 votes and take a best picture
    spot..
    Dave Karger at EW now predicts only 5 films will be nommed.
    THE ARTIST
    THE DESCENDANTS
    HUGO
    MIDNIGHT IN PARIS
    THE HELP

     I add these 2

    MONEYBALL
    WAR HORSE

    ^I think the number will definitely be more than 5. I’d say 7 too, at best 8.

    Wow, people still believe in “Extremely Close and Incredibly Loud” getting in? There must be some hardcore Daldry fanboys around here, because I see no way how that could happen.

    I’m still hoping Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 could break in to get a best picture nomination.

    THere is the British block. If they got “The REader” to be nominated, they will get a british film to be in the spot. My guess is that it will be TTSS. I will love that they will go for Harry Potter, but at this point i dont see them going for a child movie… specially after getting TTSS so many nominations at the BAFTA
