Probably true. I donlt expect anything outside the technical awards and unlike last time I wouldn't be bothered if it wasn;t nominated for the big awards. But The Hobbit up for Best Picture would give me a film to root for for the first time in a decade [:D]


Gimli, might get an acting nod for Armitage in TABA possibly - most likely not (as it's released in the summer rather than just before the awards season), but we can dream.



As much as I liked him in the film, and presume I will in the sequels, I'd rather McKellen won, if only for losing out on FOTR. It'll never happen though.



I'm sure McKellan will win next year for The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet.

Ben Affleck as best actor is slightly hilarious.


Indeed.
Hope he wins it[sm=happy07.gif]

Disappointed 'the master' didn't receive more nominations, particularly for cinematography by Mihai Malaimare Jr. and the music by Jonny Greenwood. That film was gosh darn beautiful and, although Deakins is one of the finest cinematographers around, Skyfall's digital visuals hardly matched the master's old school 70mm print. Shame man.

zeech1941 -> Eh? (9/1/2013 5:30:34 PM)

So...the writer, the actors, the design, the music, the photography and the film are all nominated, but the director isn't??? I guess Lincoln directed itself!?!?




steveg66 -> RE: RE: (9/1/2013 7:13:07 PM)

More entitlement to an opinion, nothing bewildering about that. I read about a lot of films and see what I can in these austere times. Many of us are not in the fortunate position where we can live around film. It might well be a good film, but take a straw poll in the street of that specific category and see how many are aware of it or even get an opportunity to see it.

Might be blowing a trumpet for Empire but prefer your awards system for a start. BAFTA's always too pretentious. Amour? FFS! How many average film fans have actually heard of it let alone seen it?


So you're on a website dedicated to films complaining that one of the best reviewed films of the year shouldn't have been nominated because you haven't heard of it? The sense of entitlement some people have around awards ceremonies is absolutely bewildering.

Nothing bewildering about someone coming to a website dedicated to film and then calling a film industry awards ceremony pretentious because they nominated one of the most acclaimed films of the year, simply because you happened not to have heard it? No, you're right, you're being perfectly logical.




steveg66 -> RE: RE: (9/1/2013 8:08:00 PM)

Like I said, I doubt I'm the only one.




Quentin Black -> RE: RE: (9/1/2013 8:24:59 PM)

Hey Rawlinson, just want to thank you for being a voice of reason on this thread.

For the record I haven't seen all the films that have been nominated and probably disagree with as many of the nominations/omissions as I agree with. It just amazes me how upset people get when their favorite blockbuster doesn't get nominated and start sling accusations at the various academies. Yes, there is always going to be a fair amount of politics involved in any awards ceremony but at the end of the day the voters are still respected professionals who know the craft better than many of us ever will and are voting for films that they believe represent the best the year has to offer, whether artistically or technically. If one wants a popularity contest for films with the highest box office or most fans then follow the Empire Awards or MTV Awards.

Some of the people who frequent this site need to grow up.

Different award ceremonies have different voting panels and criteria for what they think makes the best film. Empire and MTV lean heavily on the fan opinions and box office because they are for the readers and viewers who keep them in the job. The Oscars and Baftas voters on the other hand are made up of respected professionals who know the craft better than most "average film fans" and are voting on what they believe represent the best the year has to offer, whether artistically or technically. They frankly don't give a damn whether or not "steveg66" of the internet, who doesn't think some of their picks are good enough for his consideration in these "austere times", has heard of it or not.

It is actually refreshing for films that few people have heard of to get some recognition. It has a very positive effect on the industry. I had heard of Amour before but hadn't gotten around to watching it and seeing that it has been so highly regarded, both by critics and filmmakers alike, I am more likely to make the effort to see it to make my own mind up. See how that works?

NeoBrowser -> RE: RE: (10/1/2013 2:01:35 AM)

I feel the Best Film/Picture award should always go to the film that will clearly have the most lasting historical effect. As in, which film of the year will people still be watching 10, 50, or even 100 years from now.

That would be great. I wonder why the Academy haven't thought about that before? After presenting Best Picture they should also tell us next week's lotto numbers.




Deviation -> RE: RE: (10/1/2013 3:31:00 AM)

I'm glad Zimmer and Nolan didn't get nominated for TDKR. Same with Shore for The Hobbit which was mostly an incredibly disappointing work. It was some of all the mentioned artist's weakest output. I also like that Haneke got nominated for what is an apparently great film. Mostly because I like Haneke a lot too. So there.

There's also a couple of films I would have loved to see nominated but didn't, but oh well, I think I'll live.

Just because it has a male choir that goes AAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAA at the dramatic moments doesn't mean it's good Gimli.

Qwerty Norris -> RE: RE: (11/1/2013 4:45:00 PM)

Is it me, or is that an extremely disappointing and underwhelming list of British films? Perhaps a knock-on effect of the demise of the UKFC? The inclusion of Seven Psychopaths is rather desperate - in more ways than one.

Ignoring Nolan and TDKR is criminal. And as a side note have just had a good chuckle at the Razzie noms for this year. Empire new story here please.


Lazy use of the term pretentious is lazy.


Indeed.

You were always on the list! Right at the top.

Most definitely. And a grenade down the trousers.
