I'm just still pretty pissed that they pushed back the wide release for Zero Dark Thirty all the way back to Jan. 11th.

Anyway, looks like I'll be seeing Lincoln tomorrow.

Remember how everyone voted for The Hurt Locker because they thought it would be hilarious to see James Cameron, in his Avatar ego-fest, lose to his ex-wife. At the ceremony, they even sat her right in front of him. I don't think Zero Dark Thirty will win Best Picture, but Bigelow is probably the one to beat for Best Director.

The Hobbit would have killed it. It was a smart move.

Flight

Here we go again. Zero Dark Thirty has been named Best Film by the National Board of Review. It seems like an Oscar front runner has emerged.

Agreed. Deakins grabbed a nomination too. Skyfall is also up for Best Picture.

Remember the last time people went nuts for a James Bond movie and started shouting "Oscar contender!" and how well that ended up working out...

True, but the nominee roster has expanded so there's still a chance.

Keep in mind that no Bond film (including Casino Royale) has received single a nomination in any category since 1981. That says to me that they just aren't interested.

I don't hate the new Bond films, I have issues with them but I don't hate them. I just think the idea of calling any James Bond film (even the older ones that I love) "Oscar-worthy" is kind of ridiculous. They're fun movies, but they're not art, even among action films I wouldn't call any of them towering achievements when looked at objectively.

As good as it is, that's the only likely nomination. You're right though, it does deserve it.

I have had zero interest in Zero Dark Thirty because the subject matter doesn't really interest me. Is a movie about guys killing Bin Laden really that good?

In my head, it isn't framed as "the Osama bin Laden" movie. More like..."oh ****, the writer and director team of The Hurt Locker have a new movie? Chastain and Coach Taylor are in it? And it is getting great reviews? Sign me up."

I'll remember this post when Oscar nominations are announced. Roger Deakins and Adele are a lock as far as I'm concerned.

I'm not saying that Skyfall doesn't have a prayer of getting some down ticket nods, but it's going to have to fight and scrape for those so lets not start throwing around BP predictions.

We still don't know if the Adele song is even going to be eligible, and even if it is you've got to keep in mind the sheer number of seemingly nominatable songs have been in James Bond movies since 1981 that they never went ahead and nominated. Also keep in mind that Deakins has a curse or two of his own when it comes to the Academy Awards.

Looks like it'll be between Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln for best picture. I'm just glad it won't be Les Miserables.
