    Hi Yesmar – welcome to Goldderby

    I don’t think this has been written off at all – in particular, the last minute screening for the NYFC and their pushing their vote back a day in order to see it reestablished its legitimacy as a contender.

    Fincher also has the potential for a make up award, but he is pretty disliked from what I’ve heard, so I’m not sure how far that can take him.

    I’d like to read why he’s disliked in the industry. Hundreds of take? That smug look on his face which seems to be there always?

    He doesn’t kiss ass basically and is totally concentrated on his craft. He seems to work with many of the same people over and over, which tends to indicate loyalty and respect among those who know him best.

    Playing the game can help – Roberto Benigni, Paul Haggis, Tom Hooper are all examples of people who appeared at anything above a car-wash opening their years of campaigning. Fincher decided to go shoot his next movie out of the country instead. Meryl Streep tends to stay above this sort of thing.

    I hear that the trio from The Artist are going to be omnipresent this year from what I’ve heard, and Hazanavicius in particularly is said to be incredibly charming. This helps.

    Yes well I have heard that John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, and the Coen’s have done likewise, campaigning and all that. I wonder if their “charm”: helped them as well? Imagine them not staying above these things.

    I don’t think John Wayne needed to campaign for his win. Clint doesn’t do much schmoozing (doesn’t even live in LA, and certainly doesn’t relocate to LA when nominated). I have no idea what the Coens do.

    My point is that if one has a sociable personality, enjoys meeting and greeting, and particularly if one is a fresh face (like Hooper was last year), although charm alone isn’t going to win an Oscar, it can enhance a nominee’s prospects. And acting as though one doesn’t care (like Fincher last year, Streep, to her credit as well) can be a negative. Oscar voters are human beings, just like you and me, and are not immune to voting for people they know and like.

    I’m not so sure he is “disliked” by all. You cant please everyone. Fincher is no glad-hander, and he works with the same crew all the time. Imo Fincher is a  terrific craftsman and fairly unflinching. He’s far far more than The Social Network, and any Oscars which have or will come his way is likely worthy.

    It’s tougher to find stuff here for some reason – they don’t stand out as much (this was on page 2).

    There are threads already for most of the major upcoming films, but several are quite a bit further back,
