It would seem a bit odd to get nods for a film that's not generally, I think, been seen as as good as its predecessor? I don't think summer fodder has got anything to do with it tbh.



Only slightly less well liked than The Dark Knight.


Yeah, but it still doesn't really have a due factor. Inception was out two years after Dark Knight, got incredible reviews, huge box office, still couldn't land Nolan a director nom. But I think the nominations it did get could be seen as a make-up for The Dark Knight.

I have a sneaking suspicion it might get in. I mean Avatar, District 9, Inception...Avengers got pretty good reviews, made a hell of a lot of money and I think there's a lot of goodwill towards it. I mean it would be fecking stupid but it is the Academy Awards.


If something gets in on those grounds then I wouldn't rule out The Hunger Games.

Urgh - that's one step up from including Twilight.

The Hunger Games was a surprisingly decent film, given how crappy the source material was. But I'd say it fits in more with the kind of film the Academy tends to fill up the commercial slot with. Strong reviews, strong box office, not comic book.

I like a lot of his work, but he comes across as an absolute arse there. If he was so uncomfortable, why did he attend the Oscars when he was nominated for Walk the Line? Plenty of other people haven't turned up when they've been nominated.

Yeah, he does make it hard to use the 'seperate the artist from the art' argument. I like him a lot as an actor, but going on like that is just embarrassing.

Yeah, and it wasn't as if Walk the Line was the first time he was nominated. So he knew exactly what to expect.

I think Phoenix gives the best performance of the year in The Master, but I don't think it was ever going to be an awards contender. To me the whole film feels like an anti-Oscar movie. It skirts with, but ultimately subverts what the prestigious picture is about, on more than one level, but particularly when it comes to the performances (even the very idea of having TWO showy performances was seemingly designed to split any potential votes).

That's not to say it isn't a good film, it is, it's the best of 2012, but it's just not the sort of film that wins awards like this. Argo on the other hand, is a complete mainstream awards magnet.

At this stage I'm going with Argo. It plays so close to the prestige picture stereotype that it could be mistaken for a parody of those films. It is very good though.

Yeah, Argo does have the whole 'Hurrah, Hollywood saves the day!' thing to it, which I can only imagine will play well with voters. Not that that is something that concerns me - I'm very impressed with Affleck as a director so far.

I've also heard that Silver Linings Playbook is pure awards bait so I think that'll be strongly in contention.

Yeah he's great, and I'd love to see him recognised in this way. It's been a while since we've had a film of this ilk dominate the oscars too.

Adam and Dog," Minkyu Lee, director (Lodge Films)
"Combustible," Katsuhiro Otomo, director (Sunrise Inc.)
"Dripped," Léo Verrier, director (ChezEddy)
"The Eagleman Stag," Mikey Please, director, and Benedict Please, music scores and sound design (Royal College of Art)

"Fresh Guacamole," PES, director (PES)
"Head over Heels," Timothy Reckart, director, and Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly, producer (National Film and Television School)
"Maggie Simpson in "The Longest Daycare”," David Silverman, director (Gracie Films)
"Paperman," John Kahrs, director (Disney Animation Studios)
"Tram," Michaela Pavlátová, director, and Ron Dyens, producer (Sacrebleu Productions)

Short animation long list. From what I've seen (some in full, some trailers - the only two I couldn't find much of were the Otomo and the Disney) my guesses are

Otomo and Disney probably shoo ins, esp as the former is getting lifetime awards this year.
Fresh Guacamole
Eagleman Stag

not sure about the last. Usher does have Christopher Lee and they do like names the recognise but the animation is a bit like the games/animations of SF type stuff and didn't strike me overly. Tram excerpts were pretty awful, the Simpsons short is just OK (and there are better Maggie daycare episodes), Dripped's OK. So a toss-up between Adam and Dog and Head over Heels, the latter of which looked all about concept. So probably Sir Chris getting the nom.

There is no parallel universe where Bradley Cooper could ever be a serious Oscar contender, surely?!

It's a very crowded field this year (as well as rawlinson's five, I reckon Hopkins and Jackman have a good shout of getting in), so maybe not, but I don't see why not and I'd honestly be pretty pleased to see him in there. I thought he was great.

No Hooper or Lee for best director, rawls?

Absolutely. I don't think the film was perfect but his performance was, for me, vying for my best of the year. There's one moment that just hangs on his face for a while - that's why you employ people who can actually act

If Hopkins does get in and he shows up at the ceremony then he's a massive fucking hypocrite. And I'll laaaaugh. Cooper's picking up a lot of buzz.
