    Sounds like he probably has seen it — READ THIS:

    Actually, the Weinsteins aren’t releasing Les Mis, but Universal is…..so many possibilities.

    Well, it wouldn’t be the worst choice they could make. But who is this “industry insider”? Somebody who is cleverly using Tom O’Neil to market the film?

    I’d have to agree with Snuggle myself. I think Les Mis is really the only clear BP winner. Lincoln looks like a total flop, Silver Linings may be too weird for the Academy to digest. Also, Anne Hathaway is receiving so much buzz for her role in the film already that it is kind of like Catherine Zeta Jones for “Chicago” and we all know Chicago won the BP Oscar.

    ^How does LINCOLN “look like a total flop”? But I agree SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK has about as much chance at a BP Oscar nom as, oh, LOOPER does! Perhaps even less.

    Lincoln does look bad………

    And silver linings……. it’s just not an oscar movie ( people will kill me for saying this, but whatever )

    I think Life of Pi will win BP

    Silver Linings Playbook, from the trailer alone looks totally overrated. I just really want Jennifer Lawrence to win.

    I actually think SLP will be a major contender, and Jen Lawrence has to win that Oscar!

    LOL I loved it when he said:

    “Listen to industry buzz, but pay no mind to film critics or you’ll be ‘Social Networked’ right out of contention.”

    If Les Mis is any good, it most definitely will get the most nominations (10+ at least) easily making it the front runner. I can’t see it winning Director though, that’d be too soon for an industry newbie. It would be a classic example of the Academy’s screw up of rewarding a person for a lesser work (given Les Mis turns out better than King’s Speech.) Had they only known the future, Fincher would be with his Oscar by now.

    Hey, Nostradamus is alive?

    Hands down, it’s LINCOLN.

    Honestly, I think it’s neither. Both “Les Miz” and “Lincoln” might go through a severe backlash when released. The difference is that might not stop a Day Lewis nomination, but it will certainly hurt “Les Miz” big time. The more and more people hype this film, the bigger the chances it disappoints becomes, and if it fails to draw an audience and critics, you’ll see stories about it being another typical Oscar-bait that fails to live up to its promises. 

    Everything could happen, and I could wrong, but the expectations for it are so excessive, that I just can’t see how it manages to live up to them.
