    I so hope they throw all the curvaballs in the world, just to make this race even more exciting and see more underdogs getting their due.

    They like Alexander Payne movies, so let’s see how “Nebraska” performs here.

    Fruitvale is probably going to do really well here.

    I actually don’t think 12 Years A Slave would win here. It’s support among NY critics feels stronger than on L.A. This is one place we could possibly see Her or American Hustle repeating. Nebraska stands a good chance as well, for they love Alexander Payne. Blue is a long-shot, but could happen (this is Adele’s best chance and if she loses here she likely won’t win Best Actress anywhere else). I will be surprised to see 12 Years a Slave win here, because I thought it stood a better chance in NY.

    I wonder how the NY based films that did well the past few days (like Inside Llewyn Davis) will do here. And even though Redford has a lot of NY support, he stands a good chance at repeating here again.

    This is also the place where some weirder films like Upstream Color might have a chance to win something big. Although I said that NYFCC and look how that turned out…

    Fruitvale does stand a good chance here.

    This is a group that seems to be influenced by its most famous member. Usually the choices have strong support from veteran LA Times’ critic Kenny Turan. He doesn’t review all the films (colleague Betsy Sharkey does some major ones), but he likely holds on to films he loves.

    The films he has reviewed (obviously Her, AH, WoWS and others not yet written) that Metacritic scores as 100 for 2013 are:

    Upstream Color
    Stories We Tell
    Frances Ha
    Fruitvale Station
    The Act of Killing
    Short Term 12
    Gravity
    First Cousin Once Removed
    Captain Phillips
    The Square      

    His review of Gravity reads much more enthusiastic than 12 Years for what it’s worth; wouldn’t be surprised for it to be his #1 film on his 10 best list.

    Streep would seem to be an incredibly unlikely choice from this group when you look at their record. I guess the argument would be that she hasn’t won since 1985, but I doubt that makes any difference with them.

    STREEP has plenty of LAFCA so i thought its a possibilty she gets #5….

    They are a somewhat younger, hipper, edgier group than NYFC. I can’t see them rallying to AOC, which has gotten an overall mixed response despite the enthusiasm shown here.

    This is a group where Adele Ex, the actress from Short Term or even Greta Gerwig would seem to have a better chance

    Very interesting Meryl won for Out of Africa at LAFCA.  Looking back on her career, with the widespread support the film had, I always wonder why Meryl didn’t get more acclaim or awards for that film.  Even as we look back on the film and that year, people never talk about Meryl for that performance  But it was probably too much too soon for a young actress, to be recognized then.

    While I am rooting for Cate, Meryl Streep needs some lovin for the second greatest performance of the year in A:OC (Behind Cate) Her and Cate were way better than the overhyped Amy Adams and Sandra Bullock.

    I’m rooting for Adele to win here. sometimes these guys seem to go out of their way to be contrarian, but with the critics looking like they’re going to split up all over the place this year, I think they may actually go for gravity, seeing as no one else has embraced it yet, and 12 Years is still the Oscar frontrunner (although, i’m sure 12 Years is going to win somewhere, but with no pressure from critics to reward it, i’m seriously wondering what will make the Academy go for it on their own)
