    I have no rational reason for disliking Michael Keaton. Maybe it has to do with how smug he got years ago after threw off his Batman costume. Then his career crashed. ha! Now — go ahead, call me cruel — I just don’t want him to rally and get an Oscar.

    Who are YOU rooting to lose?

    I actually mirror your sentiments. I get that Keaton is a nice guy and he’s made some good movies, but he’s also made so many flops that I don’t know when I’m going to get a good performance from him. I forgave Matt for his flops because he turned in multiple sold projects the 2 years before he won; Keaton has started his “comeback” with two high profile flops that felt more like f-u money than an actual effort to contribute to the field artistically. I just don’t get the sympathy vote mentality for him. His oscar bandwagon is not one I can get on. Call me cruel too!

    It’s to early for what I want to offically lose but as of now if The Fault in Our Stars Oscar buzz is actually as strong as I hear people make out to be, than I want that to lose. Yes, I didn’t like the movie about the two cancer kids falling in love, I’m a cold heartless bastard who likes to kick puppies for fun.

    I think Christoph Waltz is great, but if he wins a third time in the supporting category for Big Eyes, I’ll be upset. He hasn’t earned being a three-time winner, at least not yet. I’ll be fine with a nomination but not a win.

    Nobody right now. I’ll wait until the race gets further long.

    Err…kinda hard to tell. None of the categories have a front runner (cuz we know so little), but from early reactions/reviews/pedigree:

    Actor: Steve Carrell
    Actress: Amy Adams
    Supp. Actor: Edward Norton? 
    Supp. Actress: Jessica Chastain?

    This makes no sense though? Do you consider this a rational analysis on someone’s oscar chances? Because I don’t. If Michael Keaton ends up being worthy of attention why not? The point is to award someone’s performance in a movie, not his/her previous filmography. And if you don’t like it… Not Michael Keaton’s problem.

    Horse Feathers! He’s been acting for 35 years. he’s more than paid his due. Plus, if hes as good as he has been in his past Oscar winning roles he would without a doubt again be a deserving winner.

     

    Dont get me wrong Im not trying to be Lord Buzzkillington on this thread, Im all for disliking someone just for sh*ts n giggles, but Waltz would be a worthy 3 time winner.

    Believe me, I think he is an excellent actor, and think that he deserves both his oscars. The problem is, when you get to three, you join a very elite class. Hepburn, Streep, Nicholson, Day-Lewis. I can’t see Waltz up there.

    Walter Brennan has also won 3 supporting actor Oscars in only 5 or 6 years.  If Waltz stays as popular as he is right now, I say itt’s just a matter of time.

    ^Bergman is there too. I do see your point, that it could happen. I just maybe haven’t seen enough of his pre-2009 work to make a judgment call. It just seems like he won so recently, that there’s no need to reward him again so soon.

    I really hope The Fault in Our Stars gets absolutely no awards. I really dislike John Green, and I, like Tom and Michael Keaton, have no rational reason for disliking Shailene Woodley, but I just do. The whole story is just badly put together, and its almost quite offensive how cancer is romanticized in the book and film somehow. Apparently, there are people calling the film “one of the greatest films of our time”, and that just makes me cringe.

    Time will tell. It’s impressive he only has two noms that fruited in wins. Both films were headed by Weinstein also. It will be interesting if he could win for a Weinstein-less movie someday.
    I’m not expecting it to happen at all, but the guy is really liked in Hollywood. No one can say how long, though.

    You’ve pretty much summed up my own feelings, although I have nothing against Shailene, other than her fanboys remind me of an elitist type of JLaw fan. Not her fault. And the Cancer theme, well, I have my own thoughts on that as well, which goes far beyond Pink Ribbons Inc, a terrific documentary.

    I dont think we have to hold our breathe anyways, about this movie racking up Oscar points. It’s Box Office is bad enough to me.
