Maybe, but I'm no mise-en-scene expert - which is why I stayed out of that discussion earlier

My assumption is that they almost fill out the 10 picture quota for Best Picture this year:

Argo, Lincoln, SLP, Les Mis, The Master, Zero Dark Thirty, Django Unchained, Moonrise Kingdom, Hitchcock, Life of Pi, Beasts of the SW, Anna Karenina.....plus longer shots like Amour, The Sessions, Avengers (should be at least short listed even if it doesn't make the cut).

This is a really strong year for the Academy in my opinion as far as depth of nominees. My guess is that something like Django Unchained gets left out and gets cited for acting with DiCaprio and maybe another. Moonrise Kingdom will probably get a nom for writing and left out of BP (although it is my favorite movie of the year so far). Same with Amour. But this is definitely the strongest year for films we've had in a while.

By the way, totally random comment #1: but I've totally seen Chris Pratt getting some random buzz for Supporting Actor in Zero Dark Thirty. That would probably be the most insane unpredictable nomination ever if you watch him in Parks and Rec.

Totally Random Comment #2: I'm rooting for Bill Murray in Hyde Park on Hudson. Any chance he beats Phoenix or Lewis? Anyone seen it?

Anyone else really surprised at Lincoln's critical reception so far? I thought for sure this was going to be another sentimental, manipulative cheesefest from Spielberg. Didn't think it was going to be an intelligent and thought provoking movie. Tony Kushner's script probably deserves a lot of thanks for that, as it looks like the film focuses on the meaty part of Lincoln's final years in office, as opposed to a formulaic, "epic" life story.

I've only heard great things about the original source of the screenplay, Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

Zero Dark Thirty is getting awards buzz, and I saw something on it today that was interesting to me. In an interview with the films composer, he said it doesn't seem like an action movie, but more like a Kurosawa film. If true, that sounds good to me. But who knows how accurate that is.

Lincoln is a very good movie. It does its job in the way a good shoe does its job: well made, comfortable, functional, no unwanted surprises, but not very exciting. It is certainly an absolute lock for a nomination for both best picture and direction. Day-Lewis provides a fine impersonation of Lincoln. Though it's not the kind of performance that excites me, it will undoubtedly get nominated, as well. So I mostly agree with the positive reviews that it seems to be getting: I can't imagine ever wanting to see it again, though.

There are a couple of moments when Spielberg can't resist a little nod to the sentimental, but almost entirely he sticks to telling the story in an informative way, minus the usual cheese. I don't know how thought provoking I'd call the movie, but it does definitely focus on the meaty parts of Lincoln's career. It's a very literate, intelligent script, for sure, though on the windy side in some sections. It looked like everybody did their homework.

I'd say it is a serious contender (I don't know if it is funny or pathetic, but if the nominations came out today, my English-language rooting interest for the Best Picture award would be Skyfall. Fat chance, though).

That's some great news.

The thing with The Hurt Locker is that we had no idea how the story was going to play out, who was going to succeed, who was going to fail, etc. Bigelow made it extremely intense with her directing. Now she has to go a different route because we know none of these guys die and Osama is killed. I'm interested to see how she approaches the story, and I'm glad to hear it's not simply an action film.

Looks like Christoph Waltz will be in the running for lead actor instead of supporting. Really looking forward to see what he does.

New trailer for Les Miserables. Judging from that, it seems to me that at the very least, it will look great. It truly looks like a big production. Should be interesting.

I thought the song in Skyfall was pretty good. I could see it being nominated for original song (assuming it is original), however I doubt it wins this year with Les Mis coming out.

edit: Although now that I think about it all the songs in Les Mis would probably be adapted from the musical, so unless they make their own then Les Mis won't win

Apparently the Silver Linings Playbook is getting a lot of Oscar buzz(entertainment magazine) marking Jennifer Lawrence as one of the front runners in the best Actress category. Loved her in Winters Bone.

I guess that would make at a pretty good year for her. Starring in a movie that grossed nearly 700 million worldwide, then winning an Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

That would be pretty good for a 22 year old.

From the early buzz, it seems like he has a good chance. I would say it might depend what the studio decides to do with Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Master. If they put him in supporting, he could be some good competition for TLJ.

I can't be the only who cracked up when Russell Crowe started singing.

He is a lock for a nomination in what will likely be a very strong category. In addition to Seymour Hoffman, I like Arkin (Argo) and DeNiro's (Silver Lining Playbook) chances for nominations as well.

She got 21 out of 35 votes by "experts" that list is actually a pretty good reference for this thread as a whole.

Skyfall #6 in Cinematography which I disagree with wholeheartedly. Maybe Life of Pi has it beat, but the Master and Lincoln absolutely don't have it beat.

Brave should not be that high over Wreck it Ralph. If it wins it will simply be because of the message of female empowerment and the Pixar name. Very forgettable film. No where near Wall-E and Toy Story 3. Hell even How to Train Your Dragon was better.

The one that jumps out at me is Looper in 11th for Make-up...

The Master is a serious contender for best cinematography, but I agree about Lincoln.

I wouldn't mind seeing Roger Deakins win for Skyfall, which is wonderfully shot, but my rooting interest there is still with The Master. Not just because it's still my #1 of the year, but because it just looks that great.

I haven't seen Lincoln yet (I will hopefully be seeing it tomorrow), but it seems like every time Janusz Kaminski makes a movie with Spielberg, he has a chance of getting nominated. Just like how Best Makeup or Best Visual Effects often are awarded to the film with the MOST makeup or visual effects, Kaminski seems to get it by MOST Cinematography. You almost have to wear sunglasses in the theater to not be blinded by the light.

Haven't seen Lincoln yet, but The Master easily has Skyfall beat for cinematography. As they say, AINEC.

Does Sally Field have a chance of winning Best Actress for Lincoln? I mean, we know the Academy like her, they really like her.
