Every year there are films which on the face of it, are destined for awards glory. Only they end up with a couple of technical nods, or no nominations at all!
Think Unbroken, Saving Mr Banks, Inside Llewyn Davis.
Which films set to be a part of the race are you not buying as a contender for this years Oscars?August 24, 2015 at 2:20 pm #192835
One film I’m not completely sold on is Steve Jobs, I’m saying this as a big Danny Boyle and Michael Fassbender fan. On the face of it, I should love this, and I should have trust in those two artists to pull it off. But something in the back of my mind thinks this isn’t the contender many are saying it is destined to be.
Maybe it was the trailer, or the fact that Boyle’s impressive awards run of late seems like it needs to come to a pause for one film released for awards season.
It may prove me wrong, but I can’t see Fassbender being nominated for this film. I can’t see Boyle as getting in as Director. And I have it in as Picture, but only in 10th – what are the odds of ten picture nominees this year?August 24, 2015 at 2:29 pm #192836
Just because it’s Steven Spielberg doesn’t mean Bridge Of Spies is automatically a best picture contender. It looks boring to me but it could do well I just don’t buy it just yet.August 24, 2015 at 2:32 pm #192837
The Danish Girl. Hooper made Les Mis damn near unwatchable. I wouldn’t trust this guy to direct my biopic if I had to. I want him to go away and stay away.August 24, 2015 at 2:37 pm #192838
In the Heart of the Sea, it’s not because of the talent involved. It’s because you don’t move your release date several mouths ahead of it’s original release (March 13, 2015) less than 2 months before it was suppose to be release for “serious Oscar consideration”.August 24, 2015 at 2:37 pm #192839
Suffragette. I just have a feeling.August 24, 2015 at 2:46 pm #192840
Yep, ‘Suffragette’.August 24, 2015 at 2:49 pm #192841
NOT feeling it for “The Revenant” at all.August 24, 2015 at 3:06 pm #192842
Someone has to say it.
Ricki and the FlashAugust 24, 2015 at 3:16 pm #192843
‘Ricki and then Flash’, ‘Suffragette’ (save for maybe a few acting noms), and sadly ‘Macbeth’ (the promotion so far looks abysmal, and I don’t feel like they’re pushing this at all for some sad reason…I hope I’m wrong).August 24, 2015 at 3:38 pm #192844
Idris Elba in Beasts of No Nation.August 24, 2015 at 5:40 pm #192845
Bridge of Spies, Suffragette, In The Heart Of The Sea, By The Sea, Secret In Their Eyes, Freeheld, and possibly The Danish Girl. While The Danish Girl is receiving high praise from those involved, it could just be them covering what might be a subpar movie. It did take a while for it to get off the ground.August 24, 2015 at 8:58 pm #192846
The Revenant never seemed like the mold of film that most voters are into, but I still have it predicted at least for nominations in major categories through a combination of afterglow from Birdman and pre-determined packaging.August 24, 2015 at 10:35 pm #192847
The trailer for the Bridge of Spies just doesn’t make the film seem like it’s very well polished, therefore, I doubt it’ll get many or even any nominations. I’ve had a feeling since hearing about Suffragette that it just won’t do well, even though I want it to. I don’t think The Revenant is going to win for picture or director (maybe actor, but c’mon it’s Leo). I don’t see By the Sea getting anything, unless Angelina Jolie gives an unbelievable performance. After Unbroken, I don’t have a lot of faith in her directing.
