Come on, let’s help our Academy buddies with the choices for the eventual nominees’ oscar clips! I’d say:
- Julianne Moore’s laptop scene (Still Alice)
- Rosamund Pike’s “I’m the cunt you married/That’s marriage” scene or maybe even the interrogation scene near the end (Gone Girl)
- Steve Carell’s “Coach is a father, coach is a mentor” speech or the “Ornithologist, philatelist, philanthropist” hilarious moment (Foxcatcher)
- Any moment Eddie Redmayne is on screen (The Theory of Everything)
- Any moment Michael Keaton is on screen (Birdman)
- Emma Stone’s entire “Relevant” speech (Birdman)
- Any moment Edward Norton is on screen (Birdman)
- Mark Ruffalo’s faux interview (Foxcatcher)
- Patricia Arquette’s “I thought there would be more” breakdown scene (Boyhood)
What do you think guys? I still have Selma, The Imitation Game, Wild, Whiplash, A Most Violent Year and a few other movies to see! I just hope we don’t have underwhelming Oscar clips like the Judi Dench one last year! (and while we’re at it, let’s talk about last year’s Oscar clips! June Squibb’s was a riot, everybody loved it!)December 30, 2014 at 12:35 pm #170507

They screwed up last year when they couldn’t find Sally Hawkins after showing her clip. That bugged me. What happened to the announcer? They weren’t around for the acting categories. I only remember them announcing the EGOT win for Robert Lopez.December 30, 2014 at 12:47 pm #170508
For Keaton, I remember that one awards association (I think Gotham) used the clip where he’s talking about his tragic past to Edward Norton, before then revealing that he was faking it.December 30, 2014 at 1:24 pm #170509
where can I see last years clips?December 30, 2014 at 1:26 pm #170510
Emma Stone’s “Relevant” monologue in Birdman, Tilda Swinton’s “Be a Shoe” monologue in Snowpiercer, Ethan Hawke’s “Talk to me” scene in Boyhood, J.K. Simmons’ scene at the end of Whiplash where he uses the “good job” line, Keira Knightley’s final scene in The Imitation Game, Reese Witherspoon’s crying scene after the kid sings to her in Wild, etc.December 30, 2014 at 1:50 pm #170511
I personally think felicity jones best scene is when she plays croquet with Redmayne, but I feel like theyll probably go with the scene with stevens father. The “i love him and he loves me” scene.
Edward Norton will probably go with one of his scenes with Emma Stone, or maybe his scene about popularity on the street with Keaton.December 30, 2014 at 4:34 pm #170512
I’ll put down my choices for the top contenders in alphabetical order.
Carell – “A coach is a father, a coach is a mentor…”
Cumberbatch – “You will never understand the importance of what I am creating here!”
Fiennes – “TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF MY LOBBY BOY!!”
Gyllenhaal – “My motto is: if you want to win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy a ticket.”
Keaton – Monologue where he lies about his dad.
Oyelowo – Haven’t seen yet, though I imagine as MLK he has many explosive speeches.
Redmayne – “But what about the brain? Does anything happen to the brain?!”
Aniston – Haven’t seen yet.
Cotillard – The first phone call she makes to a coworker, and her subtle happiness when he agrees to vote for her.
Jones – “He won’t survive the journey.” “Yes, he will.”
Moore – “I am not suffering. I am struggling.” Or basically any part of that speech she gives.
Pike – “It’s not good enough for you?” “It’s not even close!”
Witherspoon – Talking to the boy and his grandmother in the woods.
Will do supporting later.December 30, 2014 at 10:21 pm #170513
Keaton – the lie to Michael
Redmayne – “There should be no limit to human endeavor”.
Carell – “I consider myself a patriot…”
Witherspoon – response to the boy’s song
Jones – “I love him, and he loves me.”
Pike – Cool Girl voiceover and sequence
Simmons – teaching Andrew to keep tempo
Norton – one of the scenes with Sam overlooking the street
Hawke – I could see and am hoping for “We’re all just winging it”, but we’ll probably get the pre-game car scene, which is nice, too.
Ruffalo – the interview
Arquette – “I just thought there would be more.”
Streep – “Stay With Me”
Stone – “relevant” monologueDecember 30, 2014 at 11:33 pm #170514
Some that pop into mind:
Arquette: definitely the last scene in the kitchen
Streep: I would prefer the scene where shes in the tree and chewing out The Baker and Bakers Wife
December 31, 2014 at 4:51 am #170515
Gylenhaal: mirror wrecking, and, the demand scene in the restaurant
Pike: seeing Nick kissing mistress out of the bar, and, “I’m the cunt you married…”
Arquette: crying on the garage floor, and, the empy nest breakdownDecember 31, 2014 at 1:15 pm #170516
Who picks the clips? the nominees? the studios? the TV producers?
