I knew it was unlikely, but I would've liked to have seen Deakins receive some mention for his work in Skyfall.

Skyfall isn't an Independent film.

I didn't see the Independent Spirit Awards title until a few minutes ago...which explains why the films are so obscure.

I assume that's Moonrise Kingdom, but keep an eye on Silver Linings Playbook. That's gonna be a major award's contender.

Looking through more of the awards, I think I do know that one. I've seen previews of some dopey movie with Cooper and Lawrence.

It's David O. Russell, though. And the Weinstein machine is behind it.

russel might have a reputation for a douche bag, but he makes some great movies. one of my all time favorites is from him, i heart huckabees, so i will always give him a shot.

curious how much chris tucker asked for to be in the movie though. isn't he notoriously greedy when it comes to contract negotiations?

Director's roundtable with Tarantino, Lee, Van Sant, Hooper, Affleck and O. Russel. About an hour long:

Really?

The only one I haven't heard of is 'Keep the Lights On'. Moonrise Kingdom is great, Bernie is good, Beasts of the Southern Wild had a ton of buzz in the summer, and Silver Linings Playbook won fan favorite or something award at TIFF, supposed to be a Best Picture nomination. I'm actually going to see Silver Linings this weekend.

I think he "found jesus" or something a while back and didn't want to be involved with "sinnful" movies for a while. He seems to have lightened up recently, but even in Silver Linings Playbook he seems to be the only actor who isn't cursing.

Exclamation

Tis' the week:

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/weeke...s.php?id=97649

Quote:
NYFCC kicks the week off on Monday morning, December 3, and we think they're going to go with some of more heady films like Ben Affleck's Argo or Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty or PT Anderson's The Master with Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom likely to be mentioned as well.

Last year was an anomaly for the group, not because they picked the same movie as the Academy, Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist, but because they went with the cheery silent movie musical over something more serious. After all, this was the group who picked United 93 and Milk in previous years, boosting their presence in the Oscar race. Other than The Artist, they've only picked three other movies since 1994 that went on to win Best Picture at the Oscars: Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker, the Coens' No Country for Old Men and Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

Although it has the word "review" in its title, the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures (NBR) doesn't have a critic in the bunch--okay, maybe one or two--but is in fact a group of movie lovers, mostly older folks, who watch movies year-round and are thought to be a believable stamp of approval due to the length of time they've been in the awards business. They will announce in between the two critics groups on Wednesday, December 5. Last year, they went with Martin Scorsese's Hugo, the year before with David Fincher's The Social Network (which was popular with critics as well) and they've had a pretty decent run with many of their picks receiving Oscar nominations in the Best Picture category, even back when it was just five. We think they'll either go with Les Miserables or possibly Steven Spielberg's Lincoln as well as giving a couple awards to Silver Linings Playbook (probably Jennifer Lawrence), solidifying the three movies as frontrunners.

LAFCA follows on Friday, December 7 and they're very likely to go with some more esoteric choices like Emmanuelle Riva for Michael Haneke's Amour. Their Best Film choices have been similarly esoteric with regular support for Alexander Payne, having picked his last three movies, even though none of them have won Best Picture at the Oscars. The only time in the last 20 years they've aligned with the Academy was with Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker, so whatever they pick will get nominated but won't win. So David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook maybe?

The Oscar Warrior is a member of the New York Film Critics Online (NYFCO), not to be confused with the NYFCC, and we'll vote on Sunday, December 9, as will the Boston Film Critics, who we think will put all their eggs in hometown boy Ben Affleck's Argo although they may also give some love to Matt Damon and John Krasinski's Promised Land.

Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA), the group who awards the Critics Choice Awards every year--and of which the Oscar Warrior is also a member--announce their nominations on December 11, priding themselves on regularly aligning themselves with the Academy's picks. The group is made up of television, radio and internet critics, as well as what some critics refer to negatively "junketeers" i.e. those who do interviews, glad-handing talent and being flown places making them easily compromisable. As a member who knows many of my fellow members, I obviously disagree with that sentiment.

Just one day later, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), the first actual film industry guild to vote, made up of thousands of unionized actors, will announce their nominations, giving us a clear idea of what actual actors think of their colleagues and peers. Their nominations will be very telling about who is going to be taken seriously in the acting races and their Best Ensemble category gives us a clearer idea of what movies the acting division of the Academy is getting behind. We expect Argo, Lincoln, Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook to have a strong presence.

The first round of Oscar precursor nominations will end on December 13 with the announcement of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) Golden Globe nominations, which after the Oscars, is thought to be the most prestigious of awards, although one has to bear in mind that the group is made up of foreign journalists working in Hollywood who are easily compromised and swayed by star power. This may be why they sometimes have some absolutely oddball choices that make absolutely no sense, such as how they nominate Johnny Depp for every movie he makes. We'll see if they're the ones who look past how bad Dark Shadows was and nominate Depp anyway.

By my estimation, the 10 Best Picture nominees will likely be:

Argo
Django Unchained
The Hobbit
Les Miserables
Life of Pi
Lincoln
The Master
Moonrise Kingdom
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty

Dark Horses:

Cloud Atlas
The Dark Knight Rises (to quiet the fanboys)
Flight

That's a pretty damn good list, I'd say. Much better than the previous years.

I could see Flight getting in there easily. Take out The Hobbit or Les Miserables.

All those others had ambition poured into them. That alone makes them worthy of at least considering their strengths and weaknesses.
