    Since the Oscar noms are less than a month away, does anybody feel like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire deserves Oscar attention in any categories? And could it get in some categories? I’ve seen the film and it is amazing, it left me breathless, and it was a definite upgrade from the first film which I also loved!

    I hate to be the fanboy one, but yes:

    Best Picture
    Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence
    Best Supporting Actress: Elizabeth Banks
    Best Adapted Screenplay
    and many creative categories.

    If I’m truly honest, it’s one of the best films of the year.

    Costumes, makeup, song.

    Other than those, as much as I love the film, I don’t see it getting in.

    I think they can get nominations for best original song and costumes. On the other hand, it’s too hard to get nominations for acting. I don’t say they weren’t good. But adapted films like The Hunger Games generally don’t nominate for actor, actress or supporting roles. Remember
    The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. It rocked 76th Academy Awards with 11 nominations without acting categories.

    Catching Fire was one of the best sequels I’ve ever seen. I hope they can get several nominations.

    Zero nominations, unfortunately.  The precedent was set; boxoffice blockbusters are relegated to the ghetto, when the rubber hits the road, of cinematography, sound, visual effects.  When they’re nominated at all.  In ideal world, CF would be up for more than a dozen nominations.  But that’s been reserved, it seems for Mr. Cuaron and his virtually plotless Gravity.

    I really enjoyed the movie.  I love Jennifer Lawrence, but I wouldn’t consider this an Oscar-level performance.  I wouldn’t nominate the movie for BP either.  I’m glad it’s making a ton of money, but I would not in a million years compare it to artistic (and box-office) triumphs like “Gravity.”  
    I mean, if it were the same year as “Avatar,” and only one could have been nominated, I’d be jumping up and down screaming for “Catching Fire” to be nominated.  But I don’t think that it meets the work that is in the mix for noms, at least from what I’ve seen/read/heard.

    We were talking about this in the Hunger Games thread and I was hoping that momentum might change since then. Nope. Song is a strong possibility anyways. The others are long shots imo.

     

    But where does thi$ film excel and i$ a champ?  That’$ the bottom line n’e$t ce pa$? Very happy to $ee that actually. And, it’$ not done yet i$ it? Lol.

    Lol. Always the spit in the face for the fabulous tech crews. What are you going to say Paul when the “virtually plotless Gravity” wins all or some of the top tech Oscars but nothing else?

    Pook, I’ll be more than happy to eat crow on that one.  Really, besides the opening 15 minute take, what was so special about the tech stuff that hasn’t been duplicated in other movies before it?

    I liked Catching Fire even more than the first one. It was really lean blockbuster and oh so thrilling. Unfortunately, I can only see it getting into the techs, which will be dominated by Gravity, a distance cousin to 2009’s flashy Avatar.

    I think it could make it in for Song, and I also think it stands a chance in Makeup and Costume Design, but other places, I don’t think so.

    FYC: Ready Player One. Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Original Score, Production Design, Director and BEST PICTURE (make it happen Oscars!!)
