Hughezyvstheworld -> it's FAKE (9/1/2013 9:17:14 AM)

Hingway Films -> pander to the oscars more please (9/1/2013 9:23:12 AM)

It is. Any film that's released in the UK between 1st of Jan and the beginning of Feb this year are eligible by being screened to Academy members before the end of December last year. If the studio made a film available for those screenings then it can be voted for.




elab49 -> RE: it's FAKE (9/1/2013 10:20:21 AM)

I guess that means everyone can see the films before the awards.

Bit baffled that Seven Psychopaths is British but what the hey - awards for it are fine.

Ben Affleck as best actor is slightly hilarious.

How do they base that? Director nationality? Because if so then McDonagh is fine, he holds dual citizenship and was born in London. It also had a lot of British studio input, so that's probably why.




SRETRODUDE -> NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 10:38:17 AM)

Dark knight rises, the most acclaimed film of 2012 gets one 1 Nomination. It's a joke. Chris Nolan deserves to be recognised for his achievements and is ignored just because it's a Batman film. It isn't a ordinary superhero film, it's an emotional journey with twists and suspense. It was shot on IMAX. How can anyone blinded by the stunning quality shot by Wally Pfister and heart pounding score from Hans Zimmer? I Blame the golden globes. Every time they've announced the nominations all the other big film academys make the same votes. After learning of the baftas today I'm not keeping my fingers crossed for the Oscar nominations tomorrow.

By who?

It sits at number 90 in Rotten Tomatoes' top 100 of 2012.

I love it when someone rants and they clearly don't have a clue how these things work.




AxlReznor -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 11:00:49 AM)

I'm pissed about Christopher Nolan getting ignored every single time, too. Even if he doesn't win, he/his films at least deserve nominations... especially over some of the crap that does get nominated.




rawlinson -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 11:10:35 AM)

In the last 13 years he's notched up three Oscar nominations, three Bafta nominations, three DGA nominations, three Golden Globe nominations, two Producers Guild nominations and two writers guild nominations. That's more than most get in a career, let alone a little over a decade.




Gimli The Dwarf -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 11:32:44 AM)

Quick question about the music nominations. I had hoped Shore would be nominated for The Hobbit but would that be excluded as some of the themes were written for LOTR?




rawlinson -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 11:35:39 AM)

I'm pretty sure it was on the eligible list for the Oscars.




AxlReznor -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 11:40:32 AM)

In that case, his (along with Hans Zimmer's) omission from the nominations is also a joke.

" it's an emotional journey with twists and suspense!". That would of been the movies tag line!... if any of it was true[:D]

However, Hans should have been nominated at least. (my New Year resolution to add positive comment to too)




rawlinson -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 11:46:37 AM)

How is it a joke? Because all I'm getting so far really is that it's because their taste doesn't match your own.




MonsterCat -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 11:50:40 AM)

Is anyone really that surprised that The Dark Knight Rises is barely featuring in the nominations lists this season?

Not that it needs awards to validate its existence.




AxlReznor -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 11:56:37 AM)

Not surprised. Just disappointed that it doesn't get its deserved recognition.

However... I'm not going to go off on a long rant about it like the person above.

Exactly. The film was never going to win anything this year, because the Academy wasn't going to give best picture to the third part of a trilogy when they had no real interest in the first two entries. Not even the Ledger factor could get The Dark Knight any other major noms and the argument that it was going to get nominated due to some overdue factor was wiped out when Inception was nominated. If there was the feeling that a Nolan film was overdue for nominations, Inception took care of that. Nolan is liked enough to pick up noms, but obviously he's not making films that enough members think is the outright best of the year. And that's what it takes to get nominated, a good number of voters have to think you've made the single best film of the year, not one of the best, the absolute best. So whenever people complain that Nolan is getting unfairly snubbed, all they're really doing is complaining because other people didn't have the same favourite film as them. The Dark Knight Rises could have been on every single ballot, but if all it was getting was third or fourth place then it's not going to get nominated.




AxlReznor -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 12:03:05 PM)

I didn't remember Inception being nominated for Best Picture. He's still yet to receive a Best Director nomination from the Academy Awards, though as far as I know.




rawlinson -> RE: NOLAN SNUBBED AGAIN (9/1/2013 12:04:50 PM)

Because not enough members of the directors branch think he's making the best film of the year. That's all it really comes down to. Your favourite is not their favourite.




osh man -> What a load of all PoppyCock. (9/1/2013 12:16:34 PM)

Ben Affleck best actor? They avin a laugh? Decent film but Afflleck is just out of acting school and while doing well, there's better acting performances out there.




Coyleone -> Rubbish I say! (9/1/2013 12:35:24 PM)

Holy Motors, the most original, inventive and downright ridiculously brilliant film of the year didn't get nominated...FOR ANYTHING?! Beasts Of The Southern Wild, the most moving, inspiring, beautiful film of the year didn't get nominated...FOR ANYTHING?! What a load of rubbish these awards are. The best film nominations are terrible apart from Argo. Not necessarily because they're bad, but they are in no way a good representation of what the year had to offer. These awards (BAFTA's, Golden Globes and Oscars) get worse and worse every year.

Beasts of the Southern Wild got a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination...

Recieved Best Adapted Screenplay nom.

Haven't actually seen any of the bestfilm nom's this year - just don't get out to flicks much anymore [:(] really want to see Argo and Lincoln - which reminds me, with people going off half-cocked at TDKR's ommission from the main nods, what about Speilberg - 10 nom's for Lincoln, but not for director?

I'm a tad surprised too, Gimli - as the main theme is kick-arse and Bilbo's is such a Hobbity-loveliness that is a sheer travesty. Also surprised that Hans didn't get a nod for TDK. What the hell BAFTA?!

That was such a big omission, probably one film where the Director had to be firing on all cylinders and yet no love. Slightly ridiculous of the Academy, methinks.
