12 Years a Slave, The Butler, Rush, Oz: The Great and Powerful, among many others, are all out. Perhaps the most surprising snub is from The Hobbit as the last movie was nominated in this category, and two of the LOTR movies won!
The top seven are:
“Dallas Buyers Club”
“The Great Gatsby”
“Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters”
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”
“Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa”
“The Lone Ranger”December 14, 2013 at 3:52 pm #123776
Awful awful awful list.
Where’s 12 Years, The Butler, Rush, and The Hobbit??? What movies were these people watching? Remember last year Lincoln wasn’t nominated here, which was very surprising.
American Hustle is going to perform very well for nominations. Bale won’t get in, but maybe this is a clue for Adams…December 14, 2013 at 3:54 pm #123777
Among possible contenders left out – Saving Mr Banks (Tom Hanks/Disney look), August Osage, The ButlerDecember 14, 2013 at 3:56 pm #123778
These omissions aren’t that surprising to me, to be honest.
Seems like an easy category to predict: Hustle, Gatsby, Catching Fire.
This isn’t a clue towards Adams, either. Acting branch members aren’t going to vote for her just because the film is a M&H finalist. Most probably aren’t even aware this category has the bake-off system.December 14, 2013 at 4:07 pm #123779
These finalists are bullshit.December 14, 2013 at 4:10 pm #123780

No, it has nothing to do with Actors looking to see what films the Makeup branch is nominating. It has to do with finding large support, and perhaps revealing that this film will be very widely liked across the Academy. That could extend to production design, costumes, and possibly Amy Adams, whose reviews have been very good. This film is going to get more than SLP’s eight nominations.December 14, 2013 at 4:18 pm #123781
No Hobbit? No Rush? No Twelve Years? No Star Trek into Darkness?

That was surprising and didn’t make any sense.December 14, 2013 at 4:21 pm #123783
Lmfao! Welp, I better go change my predictions. My three choices (’12 Years’, ‘The Butler’, and ‘Rush’) were all left off!December 14, 2013 at 4:23 pm #123784
I had The Hobbit winning over 12 Years a Slave and The Butler. Oops.December 14, 2013 at 4:29 pm #123785
So much for 12 Years being a period sweeper. Hmmm….deciding between DBC and Gatsby for last spot….December 14, 2013 at 4:36 pm #123786
Cue, “Frozen was snubbed again!”December 14, 2013 at 4:44 pm #123787
12 Yrs is a lower-budget, indie film. Just because it is period doesn’t mean it has an automatic pass for make up, costumes, art direction. I’m not even sure it’s getting into Film Editing (Gravity, Rush, Amer Hustle maybe Wolf of WS for starters might have the edge).December 14, 2013 at 5:11 pm #123788
I can’t remember anything about the makeup or hairstyling in “The Great Gatsby” that deserved placement on this list.
I haven’t watched “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” but it seems like a logical nominee. It definitely stands out. They turned an actor into a different person.
Jared Leto may help “Dallas Buyers Club” score a nomination in this category.
