    I have noticed that contenders at our Oscar predictions that I think could actually stand a chance are ranked too low, usually 100/1. Is there any that you think are ranked too low on the charts?

    For me Man of Steel in Sound Editing and Visual Effects, or Matthew McConaughey for Mud are ranked too low, I think that they stand a chance, mind you I think it’s just a sliver of chance, but it’s still a chance.

    August: Osage County is being underestimated in nearly every category.

    Once it releases on Christmas, I anticipate a more balanced reaction. C’mon, do you really think JLD is going to beat Meryl Streep for the Globe when the latter is playing one of the juiciest female roles of the decade?

    It’s absurd.

    I cant shake the feeling that Out of the Furnace is going to come from nowhere when it is released, like Crazy Heart did a few years ago. No one I know has seen the film, but it’s been this weird Dark Horse that people are mentioning constantly. I think Bale is under ranked, and I have it in my picks for a picture nomination, despite it being ranked really low. Its premiere was as successful as I hoped, and the reviews are strong. I might be really wrong, but I like its chances.

    Her, Out of the Furnace and Inside Llewyn Davis
    are not being accounted for because the buzz for those films is going
    to be very late and people do not want to change their predictions.  In
    particular, people are stuck on Hanks/McConaughey/Redford/Dern/Ejiofor,
    but one of Phoenix/Bale/Isaac is going to get in.

    JackO, Star Trek into Darkness is going to get nothing like The Dark Knight Rises.  It is technically identical to the previous film and the reviews are only mildly worse, but there is too much controversy.

    Just because one girl in one scene of one movie strips down to her bra and panties for two seconds for no reason doesn’t mean that the world has to go nuts.

    The problems run deeper than that.

    In order of underestimated-ness:

    Her
    Blue Jasmine
    Mud (first screener sent)
    Out of the Furnace (also feeling huge dark-horse vibes from this)

    It seems so automatic to predict Dern, Redfrod, McConaughey, Hanks and Ejiofor for Best Actor but i think that we are going to see Bale insted of one of them i just don’t know which one to move out.

    Paulina Gracia for best actress and writer/director Sebastien Lelio for screenplay for Gloria (if RAtt gets screeners out).  Her for screenplay, picture, director, actor (in that order of likelyhood).  Harrison Ford, Chris Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal, Woody Harrelson (if the actors get screeners of Out of the Furnace) – all listed at 100/1 right now but I think each has greater potential than that (not to mention Jeremy Renner and Jonah Hill).  Gravity for screenplay (no other way to honor Jonas Cuaron’s contribution).  Weinstein Co. in general is always underestimated on these boards due to the Harvey hate.  A:OC is extremely well positioned if it starts to rake in the cash over Christmas.  Philomena could be a real stealth candidate – standing ovations in Venice, London, Toronto, screenplay award at Venice, second place at TIFF.  Dench and especially Coogan perhaps being underestimated, not to mention the film itself.  Saving Mr. Banks could be huge – perhaps as many as 9 nods (though editing seems more than a stretch).  Playing like gangbusters with the right crowd (Sean Penn at a singalong?!  With Mickey Rooney, no less – talk about a wide demographic!).  Inside Llewyn Davis for a lot of tech cats (in addition to the obvious potential for picture, director, screenplay [locked, I’d wager] nods – though I doubt there will be any acting nods) IF CBS films manages a strong campaign.  The Invisible Woman should be a shoo-in for a costume nod (despite repeated postings here that the film got “bad” reviews it is currently sitting at 81 Metacritic), outside shots at best actress and best adapted screenplay…

    I’m seeing Gloria tomorrow at a screening. If I don’t get an answer before, I will clear up then the question of whether it is going to have a qualifying run. To my knowledge, this hasn’t been confirmed.

    Update – confirmed that it will qualify. ED is right to think it could have some long shot hopes.

    Being techincally idential to a previous film did not stop The Hobbit from getting nominated in techs. HFR controversy also did not stop The Hobbit from getting nommed.  It’s reviews were also much much worse then any of the LOTR films. Not saying it is is lock, but it has to be considered. Rush has lost all buzz. All is Lost has no buzz. Something is getting nominated in Sound. Why not a previous nominee? 

    Also, Her has buzz from both NYFF and AFI Fest. Also according to Awards Circuit’s FYC page, WB sent out Her screener today. And witht he reviews Phoenix and Johanssen have gotten so far and pedigree of Jonze, it will be watched. Cant argue with Llewyn Davis as that is small time Coens or Furnace, that I feel will be a good reviewed but ultiately ignored since it simply does not fit anywhere.
