Also, I absolutely love that something quite unknown like No (Chilean pride FUCK YES IT'S HERE) got nommed over that incredibly huge behemoth that was The Intouchables.

And why in the name of Cubby R Brocolli did the insipid and barely understandable theme song from Skyfall get a nod as well? Worst. Bond. Theme. Ever. And yes, I'm including The Living Daylights and License To Kill. I'd rather here that Christmas tree one from OHMSS than this bland toss on toast.


Agree with this. The way Adele mangles the English language to try and get the lyrics to scan makes me angry enough to club baby seals. What the fuck does crum-ball mean and why does her pronounciation of Skyfall make it sound like she's singing about scaffold?

Worst Bond song ever indeed, just ahead of Die Another Day and the above mentioned License to Kill.


Regardless of thoughts on the Skyfall theme (which I really like), there should be absolutely no arguments that Die Another Day isn't only the worst Bond song, but one of the worst songs ever sung.


"Die Another Day" was a bad tune but at least it had a tune unlike that bilge Jack White and Alicia Keyes served up for QoS.

That wasn't a great song, but it was still a mile better than Die Another Day.

Someone please explain to me how TDKR has not been nominated for best visual effects (considering they tried their best to not use CGI where ever possible) or score?


Because the professionals who work in visual effects and film music didn't like it.


So that blatantly just confirms we're gonna be forgetting how to be old school and authentic in visual effects. Next they'll be praising 3D.

No DKR was full of plot holes.


No. It wasn't. This has been discussed many times at length... there's not one "plot hole" that can't be explained using the internal logic of the movies, or in some cases are right there on screen.


Keep telling yourself that - fanboy.



Hilarious. It's like now if someone is passionate about something they can't have a valid opinion?

TDKR was the weaker of the three but there was nothing massively "missing" from the film. The average movie-goer managed to understand it?

No one said that. Also no one said anything is missing from the film. Maybe you need to look up plot holes in a dictionary.

Plot holes are basically loose ends, am I right? Yes. Therefore things are missing that fail to add up.

And it always comes across that because people jump to the "fanboy" accusation the minute someone gets a little bit passionate.

I though Samuel L Jackson deserved the best supporting nomination for Django ahead of Waltz but It looks like a pretty fierce category this year.

There were loose ends / things that were silly / things that didn't make sense, but I've only seen it once, so I can't quote them to you.

Well, if he can't see the film has plot holes, he has the blinders on = fanboy.

I didn't hate the DKR's but I wouldn't award it five stars - like Empire did.

Seen it once? Then watch it again because believe me when you watch a film a few times you pick up things that you didn't notice before. It's a long film, it needs more than one watch. :/

Also, it's easy not to spot plot holes unless you're being overly critical of the film anyway. Cause to me there was nothing blindingly obvious to pick out.

But it's not that good, and there are many other films that deserve my attention.

Well that's your opinion. I'm not gonna argue about that but I really think before being overly critical, it should be given another watch.

Shouting "plotholes!" over and over again will not make a film less good. North by Northwest has loads of them and it is a masterpiece.

It doesn't make a film great either, which the DKR's clearly isn't. And I suppose it depends on the plot hole and how gaping it is. Anyway I really don't care enough about this film to keep talking about it.

Agreed. It's like everything has to be explained in films today. I prefer to be left with questions.

I'll give you an example of a plot hole. In Journey 2: the Mysterious Island, the Island sinks every so often, but at the end of the film it clearly gets destroyed as it sinks. How does it resurface again, with superglue? That's not a question, it's just silly.

I was talking about little plot holes. Obviously that's stupid. There again those kind of films don't really appeal to me at all.

Not as disappointed with the nominations this year as I was last year. Surprised like Tim Bevan that Tom Hooper wasn't nominated. It's the like the same thing as the lack of Spielberg in the BAFTA noms! I actually want watch this year, but as ever it's on a school night. Damn.

even though the review was quite accurate for the hobbit and it didnt recapture the glory of the lotr movies, the hobbit should have some more nominations such as: cinematography, costume design, music and especialy best song!

Nothing for TDKR, Avengers (technically brilliant) nor 'The Impossible' which was astonishing in Direction, Acting, Sound and Visuals... robbed.

'The Imposter'?
'The Raid'
'Marley'
'Berberian Sound Studio'

Thought The Hobbit would amount more, but very happy for 'Silver Linings'

Avengers did have a nomination, didn't it? Visual effects.

Was Berberian eligible for the US awards?

The Dark Knight Rises hasn't been nominated for anything, I can't believe it. Were's Ben Affleck, Christopher Nolan and Katherine Bigelow for best director, were's all the other nominations The Master deserved. The Academy really do work in mysterious ways.

I haven't even seen Amour and I'm delighted it got nommed for Best Picture. Same for Haneke for Best Director as well!

If Jessica Chastain wins Best Actress, my life is nearly complete. She should have won for Tree Of Life so this should make up for that nicely.

Deakins for Skyfall, HELL YES.

And I have seen absolutely none of the Best Picture nominees, though I've been wanting to see them for ages Hopefully seeing Lincoln, ZDT and Django very soon though.

Also if Django wins Best Picture, it'll probably give Spike Lee an aneurysm.

Is it rare for Oscar to diverge to much from the DGA noms?

He's more likely to die of over-inflated self-importance as only three films in the history of the Oscars have won without a Best Director nomination, and only one of those was in the past eighty years.
