    Fassbender and Depp both say they won’t campaign. Will that hurt them? Last year Eddie probably pulled ahead of Keaton because he was kissing every baby and opening every new car wash in town. Sometimes these things DO matter. Sometimes not (Monique, Streep)

    Well, according to Mo’Nique and Lee Daniels, it hurt Mo’Nique in the long run.

    It will probably hurt them, but I don’t understand Hollywood or the Oscars. If the movie and acting are that good, it should carry the person ’til Oscar night. They shouldn’t have to kiss Hollywood ass to be rewarded for being “great” or “excellent” in a movie. Hollywood is just as fake as the music industry, except you don’t have to ‘campaign’ to win a Grammy.

    Probably not. I mean, this does has me a bit concerned about Fassbender but I think he’s not kissing babies or opening car washes because he’s busy filming Assassin’s Creed at the moment. Plus, Kate Winslet has been singing Fassbender’s praises while promoting Steve Jobs. So I guess you could say she’s campaigning on his behalf and not just herself.

    It will not hurt Fassbinder, he is an absolute lock for a nomination.   I have a feeling since Steve Jobs is not faring as well as expected at the box office, once the nominations come out in January, there will be a rerelease and Fassbinder will be much more available and visible for promotion.   I’m not even certain about Depp’s nomination.   He doesn’t care and neither do I.

    Also, I just remembered. Even back in the 70’s, when names like Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Dustin Hoffman, and George C. Scott were speaking against the whole awards process, they were still being handed trophies and being nominated subsequently. Heck, after George C. Scott declined his Oscar for Patton, they still nominated him the year after. Yeah, I think Fassbender will be fine. Depp, I’m not too sure because while it’s a good performance, it might be too elusive and low key for voters. But Fassbender should be fine.

    Depp won’t get in even if he did all the campaigning a person could do! So no his lack of interest will not hurt him. Fassbeneder could be in danger of holding onto his nomination depending on how others we haven’t seen perform and a little hand shaking and baby kissing couldn’t hurt seeing how badly his film has performed. It could make the difference between being nominated and snubbed in his case.

    If Winlset really did that, she is actually hurting Dicaprio’s chance to get the Oscar as these two are the frontrunners. I just wonder who she will vote in her ballot. What a dilemma.

    Johnny Depp is an afterthought. Why are you still mentioning him? As for Fassbender he’ll be hurt by the fact he’s just not a leading man type. By leading man I mean someone who can sell a movie. He can’t sell it and never will. Audiences don’t care for him. Just because we, people who care about awards, know him doesn’t mean a shit in real world. His movie was a huge box office bomb and will be forgotten by the time nominations come out. Yes, I predict he’ll be snubbed. But he’ll win one in supporting category one day.

    If box office is such a huge indicator, then Matt Damon will get into the final five with huge ease. He can sell films, and draw mass audiences in.

    His film was a box office hit, so does that mean he’s in? In every other thread people are slating his chances and saying he is being exaggerated.

    I can’t see Fassbender being snubbed. They will re-release the film around the Globes ceremony/Oscar noms to give it a big boost with audiences, when more people may be aware of it.

    Will we stop this Sorkin nonsense once and for all? Michael Fassbender is probably one of the biggest names of his generation. Yes, he likes to do a bit more obscure films like Frank or Shame, but he is practicly everywhere – Prometheus, X-men, Assassin’s Creed… He did a great job in Macbeth, is a nice person, for all I can tell. I mean, I generally don’t see anything going against him. He perhaps is not a household name, but he has every chance and possibility to be so.

    So far this thread has some funny-bone comments, but this one made me spit up my coffee and come out my nose. How’s that for detail? Lol

    @Tom

    No; “not” campaigning wont prevent Fassy from getting that nomination. After all, Hollywood is “above” bad box office (as long as it doesnt make too much monies in real time).

    He’s in.

    Winslet outshines him imo; but not campaigning (ha) isnt going to hurt him in the long run to that ‘stage’.

    It hurts them more that their films aren’t better, but at least Fass smartly also did Macbeth which will secure him a lot more critics wins for his body of work this year and keep him in the conversation.

    I know that didn’t work in 2011 but I think that’s because the narrative centered around his dick more than his performance in Shame and the British bloc rallied more for Gary Oldman

    I’m sorry, he doesn’t have one of the biggest names. If you ask anybody on the street who he is over, say, Brad Pitt, most people will say no. He isn’t a leading man, meaning he cannot bring in audiences off of his name alone.

    Doesn’t matter. Everybody’s seen a Fassbender film anyway. If everything was based off name recognition then how did Jean Dujardin win.
