Besides “Apollo 13,” has a film ever won PGA + SAG + DGA and NOT won the Oscar for Best Picture? Discuss.February 7, 2015 at 11:20 pm #177417
I remember Little Miss Sunshine won PGA and SAG, but lost DGA
Birdman is now the undeniable frontrunner, and hopefully the craziness of this season can show the Redmayne SAG win was just a blunder, and Michael Keaton gets up on that stage and accepts his Oscar.February 7, 2015 at 11:28 pm #177418
Let’s look at it in another way. As I said in another thread, 12YaS last year almost missed PGA+SAG+DGA if it weren’t for a handful of votes from the producers. And then it won BAFTA, which was a large and diverse industry voting body from all fields coming together for a movie that they consensually thought was that year’s best. So if Boyhood manages to win BAFTA, we could see the third split in a row – Boyhood/Inarritu, meaning that the editing rule would still applyFebruary 7, 2015 at 11:31 pm #177419

Are they really going to give Inarritu THREE Oscars (for producing, directing and writing)? I’m skeptical about thatFebruary 7, 2015 at 11:33 pm #177421
I think it’s Birdman all the way for the Academy now. Boyhood was hugely front-runner at PGA and DGA, and it lost the two. It’s a 12 year producing achievement, and it lost PGA. It was Linklater year, and he lost.
This award season is so cruel for Boyhood. So sad for this little Movie that had so Much hope.February 7, 2015 at 11:40 pm #177422

Yeah, I know…it seems too good to be true (even though I want Wes Anderson to win Original Screenplay) but its absolutely possible that they will. They gave the Coen Brothers three, so they are not against it if they like somethingFebruary 7, 2015 at 11:43 pm #177423
Inarritu isn’t the CoensFebruary 7, 2015 at 11:46 pm #177424
Inarritu isn’t the Coens
…and the Coens aren’t Inarritu. Your point, kemosabe?
You may not like him, but Inarritu is rapidly becoming a very respected director.February 7, 2015 at 11:50 pm #177425
Very helpful, all. Thanks!

My point is 1) He’s not American 2) he doesn’t have the Coens’ filmography 3) he doesn’t have the overdue narrative carrying himFebruary 7, 2015 at 11:54 pm #177427

This is true, but I still think ‘Birdman’ loses out on Original Screenplay in favor of ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’. Just a gut feeling. I do think he’s taking Best Director and Best Picture now (his buddy CuarÃ³n also got two Oscars- Best Director and Best Editing).February 8, 2015 at 12:17 am #177428
This year’s race is unexpectedly unpredictable.
and it has been a long time(?) since anyone win 3 oscars in one night, right?
Linklater or Boyhood has to be rewarded somehow,
so I hope they will spread the wealth.
Screenplay : Grand BudapestFebruary 8, 2015 at 12:20 am #177429
“Are they really going to give Inarritu THREE Oscars (for producing, directing and writing)? I’m skeptical about that”
No, because Budapest is very likely winning OS.
^Boyhood does reap at least one Oscar with Arquette’s boring win.February 8, 2015 at 12:35 am #177430
I am really disappointed and digusted by this DGA victory.
Yes, I dont’ like Birdman. The film is a technical feast, the acting is solid, but my big issue is with the film’s dishonesty. The script is one big pretentious mess and well, sadly this could be our best picture winner. I won’t predict it. I’ll stay with Boyhood because this is a film I fell in love with and a film by one of the most interesting filmmakers. The DGA honored the pretentious filmmaker and missed the opportunity to honor Linklater.. Whatever..
Now I really hope Keaton won’t win because that would be too much. I don’t even like The Theory of Everything but I’m definitely team Eddie here, especially given that Spall and Fiennes were not nominated.
