    Apes is winning the Oscar now. Interstellar’s best shot now is the Sound categories, but I think Sniper will take them.

    I’m beginning to agree with what I previously thought was Nolanite paranoia: they just HATE Chris Nolan..

    Apes is the bigger step forward as a visual effects achievement. It’s not surprising those in the branch would warm to it. Hope it can take the Oscar as well.

    I hope so, but don’t count on it.

    Which film made more money?  INTERSTELLAR

    Which film has more total nominations?  INTERSTELLAR (across 4 Academy branches)

    What was the last film to win this category with only 1 Oscar nomination total?  DEATH BECOMES HER

    It’s still Nolan’s film to lose.

    Actually, Apes has outgrossed Interstellar domestically and internationally.

    Whoop!  You’re right!  But still, 75% of the time, the film with the most total nominations gets it, and only rarely might the biggest moneymaker win instead (which in this case, isn’t DAWN anyway, but GUARDIANS).

    I would love for APES to win, but it is a definite underdog.

    States the obvious.  Nolan is just too goddamn good for the old fogeys that run the Oscars into the ground. They don’t get him or his work.

    They especially “dont get it” whenever he delves into high science fiction. They cant get past the first few pages. That includes Memento. Maybe that’s why he throws in a ‘spaceship’ for the uninitiated.

    But you dont have to be an old fogey not to “get it”.

    So glad to see Apes get the top prize. Very well deserved. Hope it repeats at the Oscars.

    I know that we like to bash the Satellites, but they are one of the few groups to award effects and they did call Hugo, so I have included them below.  I am curious as to whether this will be a Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sweep or if it will be a divided year.  In a divided year, I think that Interstellar wins.  We have seen for a long time now how the film with the broadest support wins.  No, Interstellar was not received like we previously thought that it would be, but at least it has other nominations.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Guardians of the Galaxy both did well with the sound guilds, but only Interstellar was able to convert its support to Oscar nominations in those categories.  Also worth noting that Rise of the Planet of the Apes lost in the most wide open year for this category in recent memory, so we should approach its sequel with caution.  Guardians of the Galaxy can still make a comeback, but Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is definitely the challenger for now.
