Leo's performance as Calvin Candie was so genuinely disgusting that I fully believe Kerry Washington was honestly terrified in their scene together. Those of you who have seen it know what I'm talking about. Tommy Lee Jones was BORING in Lincoln. He was freaking Tommy Lee Jones in a wig. He plays the same guy in every role. He bored the ever living **** out of me in the movie. I know you're all going to tell me I'm delusional, but Tom Hardy was fan-effing-tastic in both TDKR and Lawless. Did the academy even watch Lawless? He was MESMERIZING opposite Jessica Chastain! I'm going to skulk around all day and whine about this.
My predictions based on very little knowledge of most of the movies but just what I have heard and what I know about the actors: Best Picture: Lincoln Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz Supporting Actress: Amy Adams Director: Benh Zeitlin

I suppose I have to live with this list. In which case, I like your predictions.
Second nomination for jennifer lawrence she is def making a name in the industry,shame that affleck is not there for best director.

[QUOTE=TheFeedMachi;332118]Jennifer Lawrence is one of the few people that is not only a great actress, but is also an A-List movie star.[/QUOTE] Totally agree. If only she hadn't done that stupid, stupid horror movie recently. I forgot the name of it but it was[B] bad. [/B]
I don't know if anyone will side with me on this one, but I'm way bummed that "The Intouchables," which is a foreign French Film, wasn't nominated. Hands down the best movie I saw in 2012. Ben Affleck and Kathryn Bigelow not getting nominated was a shock as well. But I'm happy for Benh Zeitlin, because that was very well deserved.
Ehh Who cares ? All of these boring snoozefest award shows are just big popularity contests anyway...I won't be tuning in...these things bore me.

I care more than the average person, but they are by no means boring. It's just not your cup of tea, I get that.

I guess you're right..they're just not my thing.
This year will be interesting as we have Seth McFarlane hosting. I hate how a lot of these nominations are for movies not even frickin' out in theaters too.
Why do they even have other nominations for Best Actor when Daniel-Day Lewis is a choice? Isn't that like, a shoe in every time for him?
[QUOTE=Nightwolf;332162]Why do they even have other nominations for Best Actor when Daniel-Day Lewis is a choice?

It is a two horse race between Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence.

It is a two horse race between Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence.[/QUOTE] I love Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawremce both so so much. However, Jessica Chastain has it. This Oscar is hers. It's one of the only categories I'm satisfied with. She is beyond expectional. There isn't an actress in Hollywood who can out act that woman.
Anne Hathaway - "Les Miserables" Her role in "Les Mis" is way outside of her comfort zone, and her performance is brilliant. Both Sally Field (Lincoln) and Helen Hunt (The Sessions) play themsleves playing their assigned character, and so does Amy Adams in "The Master;" but, even in being herself, Adams is superior to Field and Hunt. While I really enjoy them all equally as actors, Hathaway brings something unique to the role. She is vulnerable yet secure appropriately to her character which is very appealingly flawed. As a vocalist, she achieves something unique...fully blurring the ordinary chasm between musical theatre and the dramatic actor's essential stagecraft.

If Anne Hathaway doesn't win it's almost sinful. I was disappointed Eddie Redmayne didn't get a nod, but the supporting actor category is JAM PACKED with talent this year.
[QUOTE=Nostalgic;332213]WHO? Just kidding but there are simply better actors.[/QUOTE] Equal ? Yes...Better ? I don't think so unless we're talking about the all time best/greats.
I will personnaly buy Anne Hathaway a sandwich and a milkshake if she wins. Sorry but Silver Linings Playbook is my **** right now.
I'm pulling for either Jennifer Lawrence or Jessica Chastain to take Best Actress. Best Actor Denzel or Daniel. Supporting category I'm hoping Anne Hathaway takes it. I LOVE Anne, and her role in [I]Les Miserables[/I] is simply magnificent. I do believe Leo got snubbed, and Ben should have gotten a Best Director nom. I'm liking this years Best Picture list more than last year. I barely saw any of the movies nominated last year, but this time around the academy has gotten it right, although as a fanboy I would have given The Hunger Games a nomination for Best Picture, but that's just fanboy me talking haha, I hope they create a master piece with one of the remaining three films. Best Picture should go to: Life of Pi (that movie was magical to watch, and love the theme of Faith behind it).
I'm pulling for Jlaw as well. Plus she's very hot!

The movie just isn't as worthy as the book, in my opinion. The acting was okay (I don't really think it was casted that well, other than Jennifer Lawrence and Woody Harrelson) and the Cinematography made me want to turn my head. It won't ever be nominated for Best Picture, mark my words. As for what will get Best Picture, I personally think it will go to Lincoln, but I think Amour or Life of Pi definitely deserve it the most. I want it to go to Zero Dark Thirty or Beasts of the Southern Wild, but I doubt it will.

It's going to go down in the Harry Potter route, and not get recognized by the academy. As long as they avoid the "razzies" I'm happy. I haven't seen Amour, since you believe it deserves it I'm going to give it a shot.
[QUOTE=kvm1977;332316]The Academy hates him for some reason[/QUOTE] I don't think they hate him so much, more so the fact they would never reward the character he played. As for the other categories I have Lincoln winning Best Picture, Daniel Day winning best actor, Hoffman winning supporting actor, Jennifer Lawrence with best actress, Hathaway winning best supporting actress.
[QUOTE=Esquire;332327]I don't think they hate him so much, more so the fact they would never reward the character he played. [/QUOTE] They would never reward the character he played? That is the most ridiculous thing I have heard. They gave Christoph Waltz the award for playing a character whose nickname was The Jew Hunter.
[QUOTE=Esquire;332327]I don't think they hate him so much, more so the fact they would never reward the character he played. [/QUOTE] I disagree with that. The "character" is irrelevant. It's the portrayal of the character
