    I see no Oscar love going to ‘Nebraska’ and ‘August: Osage County.’  Your thoughts?

    I am still counting on major love from the academy for these
    2 films…NEBRASKA.. Dern and Squibb and screenplay for sure
    could be pic director and cinematography as well…A:OC, will
    get oscar love for the screenplay, at least 2 acting, possibly
    best film if Weinstein made a dent!!

    Nebraska will get AT LEAST 4 nominations (actor, supp actress, picture and screenplay).
    I expect A: OC to be dramatically snubbed though. Weinstein better works his magic because everyone knows this year is too good movie-wise for voters to just bend over and nominate his stuff by default.

    I found ‘Nebraska’ too mean-spirited and devisive.  Winning the Palm d’Or doesnt really mean anything to AMPAS.  Its biggest strength is Dern.  The screenplay and Squibb might ride his cottails but I doubt it.  I haven’t seen A:OC but based on the reviews it sounds like loud, bitchy awards bait.  Every year there are snubs and these two films are my favorites to get nothing.

    Have you seen A:OC?

    I have and didn’t enjoy it AT ALL. Was beyond disappointed. Way too messy and the director paid the price of having such a powerhouse cast, cause he clearly had no handle on them whatsoever.

    Have you seen it?

    A:OC for best picture might probably be snubbed. From the reviews I’ve read. But, do you think Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep will be snubbed because of the film itself? Or do they have really strong performance to warrant their nomination? They say Julia is better than Meryl in the film, so is there a possibility that she takes the spot in the best actress category then?

    I still think that Weinstein and Clooney will make Picture nom for A:OC.

    Her is not getting snubbed for BP and BD now that it has won NBR and LAFCA.

    I’m guessing August: Osage County will miss BP.

    I also think everything Captain Phillips related is very vulnerable.

    Meryl Streep
    Judi Dench

    ….someone’s gonna be out if Amy Adams (or Adele, though less likely) gets in.  If Saving Mr. Banks is in for BP, it will be one of these ladies.  And I’m in the camp that believes Meryl has never been properly snubbed.

    Tom Hanks

    ….in both categories.  Best Actor is the most fascinating of all the acting categories.  Big names considered “in,” big names on the fringe.  Well, if Leo and Joaquin gain traction someone’s gotta go (Could it actually be Ejiofor?  GASP).  And best supporting actor is a better category without Hanks in it.

    August: Osage County in Best Picture. Right now it is literally an acting showcase, hence its predicted strong showing at the SAG nominations tomorrow. Its Best Ensemble nod tomorrow will be its Best Picture nod this season. I never had it figured for Best Picture, seeing as Streep and Roberts are THE ONLY good things mentiond about it.
    Its lovable (and Oscar darling) producer George Clooney aint gonna be much of a factor or help this time around. Fruitvale Station is currently soaring towards that top 10, if it isn’t in already.

    I think AOC will do just fine at the oscars…… 4-5+ nominations
