    The nominations for the PGA Awards will be announced on Thursday, January 2.

    It seems five slots are reserved for “12 Years a Slave”, “Gravity”, “American Hustle”, “Nebraska” and “Captain Phillips”.

    “The Wolf of Wall Street”, “Inside Llewyn Davis” and “Her” are also safe bets.

    What about the remaining two slots? There are so many contenders. “Blue Jasmine”, “Fruitvale Station”, “Dallas Buyers Club”, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”, “August: Osage County”, “Saving Mr. Banks”, “Philomena”, “Rush”.

    What are your thoughts and predictions? The announcement is less than three days away.

    If I were a betting man, I would say that “Dallas” is the indie to get in, and that “August” closes out the 10. The wild card here is “The Butler,” which PGA may really appreciate as the surprise hit that cashed in on the timing that helped shoot “The Help” to prominence.

    “Dallas Buyers Club” was initially dismissed as a weak movie with two big performances, but I’ve been surprised by the SAG nomination for its cast and the placement in the top 10 at the Critics Choice Awards. It could definitely get nominated here.

    I also believe PGA members know who they are nominating even if their names don’t appear on the ballot, so “The Butler” could make it in as a tribute to Laura Ziskin.

    BFCA means nothing but the SAG ensemble nod for Dallas Buyers Club is extremely telling of its support in the industry. A nod here will confirm it.

    I don’t wish to overstate BFCA’s importance. They probably don’t have much influence but it’s noteworthy that an organization said “this is a good film” after the middling reviews and the snubs by the Independent Spirit Awards and the American Film Institute.

    I wouldn’t say DBC has middling reviews. It has a 100% from top critics on RT and an 84 on metacritic with no mixed or negative reviews. In fact, the reviews are extremely inconsistent with the amount of awards recognition it has received so far.

    I feel like the following films are locked to be nominated:

    12 Years A Slave
    American Hustle
    Captain Phillips
    Gravity
    Her
    Inside Llewyn Davis
    Nebraska
    The Wolf of Wall Street

    It’s the final two slots that I am having trouble with. “August: Osage County”, “Blue Jasmine”, “Dallas Buyers Club”, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”, “Philomena”, “Rush”, and “Saving Mr. Banks” are the other films that have been in the precursors in significant ways so one of those will be the final two.
