    Hey Derbyites! I’m putting together an article about which potential Oscar nominees our editors and users are most excited to see. Vote in the poll above and below let us know which film you voted for and why you can’t wait to see it. Obviously, I’ll be using some of these quotes for the article but feel free to gush about whatever you’re most looking forward to.

    Thanks so much and here’s to another (hopefully) great upcoming Oscar season!

    Inherent Vice WITHOUT A DOUBT 
    Birdman
    Foxcatcher

    with the exception of maybe Gone Girl, the rest don’t do much for me.

    Well, I want to see most of the above and especially Inherent Vice and the other two that start with “I”. Knowing I’ll watch them ALL I suppose is apropos for a film fanatic, but sometimes it’s annoying as hell.

     

    Personally, I’m looking forward to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Give me Orcs, Dwarves, Elves, Hobbits and Wizards, Ents, and other denizens of this world, just to take a break from murderers, suspected murderers. war and war games codes and prisoners.

    Come to think of it, an Ex Super hero and a pot-smoking Investigator seems mighty fine right now.

    And then there are the films which have been pushed back for whatever reason(s) until 2015…..

    I’m kind of excited for Interstellar. It looks like it will clean up at the Oscars.

    Out of your list, I’m really excited for Selma. Ava DuVernay is such a tremendous talent, the cast is basically first class from head to toe and Bradford Young as DP promises it’ll at least look gorgeous. Foxcatcher looks like something totally unnerving and challenging and right up my alley, as well.

    But I’m more curious about 99 Homes than anything else, really. I’ve been a big fan of Bahrani since his indie roots, Andrew Garfield is, to me, the most talented actor in his generation and Michael Shannon has a part that seems like an easy lob to hit right out of the park. I’ve been looking forward to it for a while but the good notices of it from Venice and Telluride so far, and word that it’ll find distribution this year out of Toronto, just makes me all the more thrilled to see how it ends up.

    I’m going to see all of the above (and then some), and my most anticipated list includes ‘Foxcatcher’, ‘Birdman’, ‘Gone Girl’, and ‘Inherent Vice’. But if I were to pick between any film set to be released this year that I could see right this second, it’s ‘Interstellar’, so it gets my vote.

    I don’t need to say for which movie I voted am i right? 

     

    But I second Tye! Gone Girl, Birdman, Inherent Vice and Interstellar complete this year’s top 5 of my most antecipated films. I plan on watching them all on the theaters.

    ^I have really high hopes for The Boxtrolls too, but a BP nomination seems like a HUGE stretch. I’m not going to say it can’t happen, but it would need to be universally acclaimed and a good percentage of people need to look at it as the very best of the year. And those people sadly need to be adults who belong to the academy. The ones who only relatively recently felt the need to include a Best Animated Film category. And then they ignored a bunch of years where Pixar produced animated films that are among the best reviewed of the year (Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Rataouille, Wall-e) becuase at least they could get animated film in a landslide.

    I will be the first one to cheer it on if it’s fantastic, and to celebrate if it gets a BP nomination if it deserves it, but I would put any of the films on this list, and then another 10 on top of them as being more likely candidates when the time comes. Just my opinion of course.
