Are there any known contenders that you think could become major players, that the rest of GD/the world is not yet taking seriously?
-Julianne Moore in Carrie
-Out of the Furnace in Best Picture/Director
-Woody Harrelson in Out of the Furnace
-Her in Best Picture/Director
-Joaquin Phoenix in HerAugust 22, 2013 at 4:34 pm #109199
Jason Reitman is due for an Oscar of some kind, Kate Winslet is an Academy favorite, Oscar-friendly release date.
Can’t believe Winslet isn’t in more Best Actress predix.August 22, 2013 at 5:20 pm #109200
Simon Pegg/World’s End (his reviews suggest he might get some critics’ groups support, GG has comedy categories), also orig screenplay

I was laughing so hard when Jason Reitman lost the screenplay Oscar, after the clip of his Dad saying it’s great when your children can surpass their parents.
Well, I’m hoping Harrison Ford gets Oscar traction. He was pretty good in 42. Though I’d like to see him win for a lead part. I said this before but I was so bothered when Steven Spielberg listed Tom Hanks and Daniel Day-Lewis as the best actors he’s ever worked with, clearly letting their Oscars influence his comment. I’d take Ford in Raiders over Hanks in Ryan or Catch Me.August 22, 2013 at 5:52 pm #109202
How about Alfre Woodard in “12 Years A Slave?” It’s one of the year’s most high profile films and she’s an acclaimed actress and a past Oscar nominee.
Josh Brolin in “Labor Day?” Why is everyone assuming Winslet and Reitman could be the main contenders? Brolin is a past Oscar nominee himself.August 22, 2013 at 6:07 pm #109203
Parkland and RushAugust 22, 2013 at 6:10 pm #109204

Where Blue could really compete is director – I’d be shocked if it had 4 noms and not directorAugust 22, 2013 at 6:55 pm #109207
Im predicting the following nominations for these “dark horse” films
Blue Jasmine – Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Leading Actress, Best Supporting Actress
Blue is the warmest color – Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Leading Actress, Best Supporting Actress
Her – Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Leading Actor, Best Supporting ActressAugust 22, 2013 at 7:00 pm #109208
Harrison Ford in 42. He’s a huge question mark. He could either be completely forgotten the whole awards season or he’ll win the Oscar. There’s not much in between.
If he’s remembered by a critics group and gets a Globe nomination, I think the buzz could really steamroll leading him to a win.
He’s got a lot of pluses in his corner (veteran, respected, never won, won of the biggest movie stars around, hugely acclaimed performance, hit movie). His only problem is the early release date. If he can overcome that, he’s a shoo-in.August 22, 2013 at 7:11 pm #109209
As usual, with all of the DICAPRIO nonsense..
the leaders for best actor are BRUCE DERN AND ROBERT REDFORD..August 23, 2013 at 11:20 am #109210
June Squibb, Nebraska
I guess she’s not glamorous enough for any fanboys to constantly promote her. Supposedly she’s great in Nebraska. I thought she should’ve been nominated for About Schmidt.August 23, 2013 at 11:21 am #109211
lol Is Robert Redford really in the front runner status?
