    Robert Redford. 

    I just saw All Is Lost, and want to know what people think Redford did that was so Oscar-worthy. He’s fine in the role, but there’s nothing difficult about the role other than the physical demands of it for a 77-year-old.

    I really don’t want Harrison Ford to be nominated for 42. Just my opinion but I thought it was a hammy, over the top, and completely unoriginal performance that just stole from all the other “mentor” archetypes in sports films.

    There’s also a little part of me that really does not want Lawrence nominated for American Hustle. I love her and think she’s a hilarious, and fun personality, and she is talented, but her personality already got a her a win by 22 (imo) I really don’t feel it needs to get her another nomination.

    Robert Redford. I know I have to be one of the few who thinks this, but I have no clue how his performance (or the film, for that matter) earned so much praise from the critics. It’s not a good performance, or even a bad performance. It’s just… it’s hardly even a performance. “Amen” is an appropriate closing song for All is Lost in more ways than one.

    12 Years a Slave — I have no interest in seeing it win Best Picture, Best Director, and 3 acting awards.

    I’ll be blandly generic – anyone/film that is the frontrunner now losing would be good since it would show the race really doesn’t become clear until early December

    I have no idea why The Fighter got so much love and Silver Linings Playbook did not deserve to be the one to survive the directors branch bloodbath last year, so I would be fine with David O. Russell sitting out.  Likewise, The Descendants was nothing special, so I would not mind Alexander Payne being snubbed.  I feel similarly about Woody Allen for Midnight in Paris.  Jonah Hill barely had to flex any acting muscles in Moneyball, so again, he has been more than amply rewarded and he has a snub coming.  Pixar robbed Wreck-It Ralph of its Oscar last year with the subpar Brave, so I hope that they lose this year, even if it is just to Disney proper.

    I shall borrow from the Swedish rapper Timbuktu and the great Stephen King and say this about Gravity:

    I hope those who want to vote for it forget every pin code they have, even when they get new ones.
    I hope their clock goes 20 minutes too late so that  they are always late for their meetings, their voting and every deadline they may have.
    I hope their mail-man is someone who doesn’t wash his or her hands so that the envelopes they get always has a distinct smell of sh**.
    I hope some none life or sight-threatening bakteria attack their eyes so that they always look tired and that convinces everyone around them that they are on something.
    I hope their computers always crash, but not in a way that destroys their whole life.
    I hope their anti-virus programs pops up every ten minutes and tells them to restart their computer.
    I hope.

    I kinda hope that somehow Oprah loses. I mean, she is Oprah. She has everything already. Does she really need an Oscar? 

    I also hope 12 Years A Slave loses BP.  I don’t need a bunch of smug critics to tell me what the best film is, I’ll decide that for myself, thank you very much. 

    I hope Gravity loses Best Cinematography. Hey! Let’s make a film on a computer and call it cinematography! LOL. It’s an insult to people who still film on film, like Nolan and Scorsese.  

    I hope Bullock doesn’t get nominated. Woof Woof!

    Robert Redford winning? For that!? No….

    There’s a scene in Captain Phillips that I’ve heard people say is some of the best work Hanks has ever done. He’s one of my favorite actors, but I thought he was awful in that scene.

    I thought Lee Daniels’ The Butler was one of the most overrated films of the year. I would love to see that get snubbed for Best Picture and Oprah Winfrey not win for Best Supporting Actress. 

    As good as Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks were in there respective films (Gravity and Captain Phillips), neither of them should be nominated in the leading categories, especially when there are others who are more worthy.

    And Julia Roberts should be competing with Meryl Streep in the Best Lead Actress category as they were both leads in August: Osage County, so leaving her out of the Best Supporting Actress is the right thing to do.

    I’d really be disappointed if anything beat Gravity for Film Editing or Cinematography this year. Those were some of the very key factors in making it a success, and they’d be perfect ways of honoring Alfonso Cuaron and Emmanuel Lubezki, who are both overdue in my opinion. There are going to be a lot of great nominees, but I don’t anything will really compete with them. 

    With so many good-to-great films trying to squeeze into the BP race this year, I’d really find it unfortunate if The Butler made it in.
