    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 Her

    LABOR DAY!!!!!!!!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Where Blue could really compete is director – I’d be shocked if it had 4 noms and not director

    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.

    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.
