Argo will win picture
I have Russell wining director since I think ti will be Academy’s 2nd favorite film.
Lincoln is dead.
No passion for Pi. Lost too many big tech prizes to Skyfall and Les Mis at BAFTA and Guilds
Beasts has no chance.
My alternate is Haneke because well because.February 18, 2013 at 9:52 am #91832

Come on, if AMOUR didn’t appeal to Americans, how did the film manage five Oscar nominations?
How would a film without being appealing to mostly American voters score nominations for:
Foreign Language Film
Even if we take foreign language film out, that’s four branches – directors, actors, writers – and for a film that premiered way too late (December) is a big success. So yes, I believe Riva will have the broad support and will win the Oscar. The narrative is WAYYY TOO GOOD for them to ignore.
Strong fanbase can get you nominations but consensus *cough argo *cough get you wins.February 17, 2013 at 9:05 pm #90384
Honey, IMO, Lawrence wasn’t miscast. She made Tiffany her own, more so than Jessica with Maya.
Quoted For Truth. I laugh when people say that someone else could ahve done the role. Sure they could have stood in for it but it would have been a yawnworthy by the books performance. Lawrence owned that film, moreso then any of the other nominees this year. Half of them spend more time sleeping in bed then acting.February 17, 2013 at 8:27 pm #91628
Argo winning screenplay?February 17, 2013 at 11:21 am #91291
I just can’t buy into the Riva hype. It’s a good performance but Trintignant is a lot better. BAFTA showed a Euro bias that the academy won’t. Plus, I believe Tom when he tells of academy members who burst out laughing with the mention of “Amour”.
She doesn’t have the exposure to win.
And even with the Euro bias at BAFTA, it still lost screenplay to Django and director of course to Affleck. So maybe it is not as loved as some people are saying it is? It’s mostly the screenplay lost that troubles me. That is one place where it really could and should have stood out. And also considering SLP was supposed to be shutout yet it won screenplay and was probably very close in actress, shows there is more strength then what has been reported.February 17, 2013 at 11:16 am #81101
In the end, I switched to BraveFebruary 16, 2013 at 10:44 pm #81097
Brave and Les Mis win CAS and luckily I had Brave there so no mletdown.February 16, 2013 at 10:40 pm #81096
Do you think this will influence the oscar race for the best animated movie ?…Wreck it ralph was clearly the favorite
It’s a close race between Brave and WiR. Ralph will probably still win in the end but Brave is running strong.February 16, 2013 at 9:49 pm #81092
Brave won the ACE Eddie
Argh. I knew it. It won best editing Annie but siwtched it out last night for Wreeck it ralph thinking they would treat like a best picture award. Argh.February 16, 2013 at 2:53 pm #89968
Again, I have a feeling we’re in for some major upsets. It’s lurking. Hang on to your hats people.
Yes it is.
