    I spoke to 5 oscar voters today. 2 said they voted for birdman, 1 boyhood, 1 Budapest and one said he doesn’t give a fuck and ain’t voting. he also said he’s skipping the ceremony for the first time in 30 years because it’s not worth him spending $750 per ticket for him and his wife

    Wow. Skip a year when most of the categories are up in the air? Uh, okay.

    What did the one who voted for Budapest put in second and third places?

    Are they voting for the same director as film or splitting?

    Up in the air?  Redmayne, Moore (for a movie that literally 50 people have seen), Simmons and Arquette.  Stone cold mortal locks. When in doubt, go with the movie that’s made less.  That’s how the Oscars have done it 3 of the last 4 years.  So Boyhood and Linklater.  Or just watch the Indie Spirits the day before and find out all the Oscar winners 30 hours earlier

    Yes. There’s more to the Oscars than just the acting categories. Plus Best Actor is still a question mark. Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Film Editing, Best Original Score, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Visual Effects are definitely “up in the air.”

     

    And Kristen Bell is hosting the Independent Spirit Awards. Get excited!

    I am half thinking about putting Boyhood back for picture because it is guarenteed an acting win while Birdman is not. Im really torn though between Birdman and Boyhood pretty hard to call.

    No shit. This awards season is only matched in awfulness and absolute boredom by the 2011 one where we had Streep, Dujardon’t, Plummer and Spencer steamrolling the entire circuit with much more deserving actors in the mix (my personal winners of the year were Kirsten Dunst, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Jessica Chastain or Shailene Woodley). There’s no real surprise here, there’s no diversity and the snubs were EGREGIOUS. Too many nominees riding coattails of the movies they’re in, too many politics involved, too many precursors dictating the guidelines. Where is Agata Kulesza’s nomination? Where’s Jake Gyllenhaal? David Oyelowo? Jennifer Aniston? Jessica Chastain? Rene fucking Russo? Miles Teller? Why was American Sniper nominated over films like A Most Violent Year, Nightcrawler, Gone Girl… movies that have actually something to say other than “killing muslims is justified”? Sorry about the rant but I just can’t with people that say this awards season is exciting because we have Birdman vs. Boyhood, Linklater vs. Iñárritu and Redmayne vs. Keaton. Wow big deal. We knew that all along.

    It is a big deal. We just came off last year’s Oscars where everything was obvious except Animated Short.

    If Boyhood sweeps BP and BD and Redmayne wins BA, we will then come to the conclusion that we just overhyped the awards season.
    (Imo Boyhood wins BP, Birdman wins BD and Keaton BA)

    Actually screw it, Boyhood and Linklater will win. We won’t get a split like the last two years.

    American Sniper… is better and a real success. Really, DeadLikeMe?
    It’s nomination is a disgrace to the Academy and it’s selection process.  It IS a financial success, and that says a lot about  its supporters.  Often very bad movies make a lot of money.  There’s no accounting for peoples taste, is there?
    It discredits the Academy.
