    I saw this at TIFF and the Michael Fassbender/Steve McQueen combo was in top form again. Michael won the Best Actor at the Venice film festival, and so far, talk out of TIFF has it as the best reviewed film thus far at TIFF. I wonder if a film like this, the topic of sexual addiction, with, gasp!, male nudity, could win the top award at TIFF?

     

    We’ll soon see, but I’m creating this thread in preparation for Oscar hopes.

    ps. Tom, remember when you told me that you weren’t interested in Fassbender until Oscar talk regarding him got serious? Well…

    bump up

     

    And as I posted at Fassinating Fassbender today, I speculate that Shame will be released in the US on December 16th. And I know the odds are against Michael Fassbender at this moment to be nominated for an Oscar, let alone win it, but as more people actually see the film, his chances will improve greatly!

    He’s going to need to win one or more of the major critics’ awards, Blue.  If he does, he might get an AMPAS nod; without that push I doubt enough voters will go there on their own.  At this point I think that McQueen is a strong candidate for a writing nod, though…

    I agree with GoBlue that once people have seen the film they’ll realize its brilliance, and specifically the greatness of Fassbender’s performance. I’ve now talked to many local Toronto film fans who attended TIFF and almost all are mentioning Shame & Fassbender, which is interesting to me. I wouldn’t have necessarily thought so many would have seen it, despite the 1,000s that were at the screening  GoBlue & I attended.

    I love Fassbender, but given that the film will probably put off a bunch of Oscar voters, it’s gonna be hard for him to land a nomination. I do hope I’m wrong, though.

    All I can say is that if the academy cannot look at this film like adults and honor the man for what he did in Shame, then, shame on them.

    Fassbender could also be helped by the one two punch of A Dangerous Method (great performance in a talky sorta dull film) then Shame which is all round great from every angle so to speak.

    I have no big love for the Academy “thougjt” process. but I cant see the voters being put off by this film. Without having seen it, it appears to be an edgy challenging film with great performances.

    Films like “Knocked Up”, “The Hangover”, and “Bridesmaids” I can understand them overlooking. Not that there’s no room at Oscar for these kinds of ‘films’….

     

    “Shame” is definitely one I’ll be seeing asap.

    Remember, the Academy had no qualms with A Clockwork Orange or Dangerous Liasons, and I’m sure the Academy has become more progressive. If Shame is good enough, the Academy will recognize.

    The premiere of Shame at the NYFF is the TALK of the festival. Too bad no awards are given out there, surely Shame and Michael would take something home. But I think the buzz is going to carry them the distance!

    It appears that Shame has experienced some form of editing to be shown at the NYFF. The film I saw at Toronto, and what was shown at Venice, was NOT shown at NY. What surprises me is that if any editing were to take place, I thought it would do so prior to theatrical release. But for Fox Searchlight to ok some editing for the FILM festival of NY, says to me that they are serious about an Oscar campaign for Michael and perhaps did not want to turn off the delicate palates of the powers that be in NY.
