    As this dust begins to settle on this Oscar race, which of this year’s potential winners do you think can garner standing ovations from the Oscar audience?

    I use this as an imperfect gauge for guessing winners – it sometimes is significant, sometimes not – but for me the most likely winner in any category to get a spontaneous, enhtusiastic, heart felt SO would be Bruce Dern, which is one of the reasons I regard him as co-favorite.

    Cate Blanchett might get one as well, but more respectful than passionate.

    If he were to be nominated, and win, I think Leo DiCaprio gets a standing ovation.

    Maybe Bruce Dern, if he becomes the Oscar frontrunner.  Possibly Cate Blanchett as tribute to her career.  Or if someone trips on their way to the stage.  It’s hard to tell…remember two years ago, every acting winner except Jean DuJardin had a standing ovation.

    Alfonso Cuaron and Lupita Nyong’o could get standing ovations if you ask me.

    Bruce Dern, Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, maybe Cate Blanchett, JLaw got a pity standing O last year so a back-to-back win might get her another…

    Oh, and definitely Steve McQueen.

    Whoever wins Best Actress will get a standing ovation.

    Oprah will get one if she wins.

    Leo DiCaprio if he wins.

    Steve McQueen or Alfonso Cuaron will get one.

    They don’t typically give directors standing ovations, right?  I know Ang Lee got one last year, and Kathryn Bigelow did in 2010, but the crowd usually is seated.  Zippo for Peter Jackson, Clint was kinda half/half, none for Coens, nor the Weinstein directors.

    McQueen, Dern, and Blanchett, particuarly because of the narratives they respectfully carry, would get a standin O.

    I think that whoever wins the acting awards will get an ovation. Particularly anyone from 12 years, Oprah, or Cate Blanchett.

    The acting categories this year are full of veterans, so they’re all getting standing o’s.

    McQueen would be the first black director to win – so yeah, definitely a standing ovation for him.
