Judi Dench will win another Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2013...
Not for Best Exotic Marigold Hotel but for her role as M in Skyfall. She's actually the focus in a lot of it. I guess the director Sam Mendes will deserve some of the credit. Hasn't at least one performer in all of his films so far been nominated for an Oscar ? I think so.
So, you've seen the movie?
If she can get nominated she MIGHT win, since they're all aquiver over her going blind with the macular degeneration.
I wouldnt be surprised if she was nominated. Its been six years since her last nomination. The acting branch of oscar voters love her. Six nominations and one win between 97 and 06 is impressive. No ones ever been nominated for a bond film acting wise. If anyone can win for one its her.
Bitch please. The award belongs to Anne Hathaway this year.
The supporting field is much too crowded this year. She has no chance of even getting in.
Particularly since she's given this performance in every Bond film before - if this were her first Bond film, one could speculate about a nomination.
The way Ian McKellen was nominated for the first Lord of the Rings film, giving us a fresh performance in the first film of the series. But he wasn't nominated for the other instalments.
In any case, this year's slot for British acting legend is reserved for Maggie Smith in Marigold. Judi's nomination will go to her.
Streep Troll, pay attention. According to all the reviews I read of Skyfall by those who attended a British press screening yesterday Dench does outstanding work in it and M has way more to do in this film than in any previous one.
Dench will undoubtedly be nominated for her work in this, which will be one of the all-time most successful Bond movies. And she'll probably win, too. All Hathaway has in Les Mis is one song.
Dench will win a BAFTA (again), be nominated for a Golden Globe, but Oscar will pass her by entirely.
You heard it here first.
The Anne Hathaway worship is odd....no one has seen it and doesn't Eponine usually steal the show in Les Miz?
Let's just wait and see the movies first, ok Girls. This early prognostication is really too much of a bore. It has been for years.
Judi Dench as me? Can she do the Jersey accent?
I truly just downright adore my fellow Quaker Dame Judi Dench, but...
Sally Field ("Lincoln") and Jessica Lange ("Therese Raquin") are more going to be the ladies to beat for the 2012 Best Supporting Oscar.
I agree, R15! I can't wait to see the Streep Troll's head explode, knowing that Sally Field will tie La Streep with her three Oscars!
As usual, the Streep lunatic. Makes pronouncements about things it knows nothing about. The reviews for SKYFALL are raves - along the line of "best Bond ever," and part of the focus of those reviews is that Dench is giving a performance that is NOT the same old, same old.
I love Sally but she didn't make much of an impression in Spiderman....
oh Lynn,....you are soooo wrong
I really didn't think she was that good in Skyfall.
Once again, just because there is poignancy to the storyline for the character M, doesn't mean there is anything special or "amazing" about Ms Dench's performance. She could play this in her sleep.
I'm a fan of Dench but I agree, he work in Skyfall is nothing really impressive. The idea that it will win an academy award is absurd.
Yes, I mean it was good acting, but I expect that from her.
She will win FIFTEEN Oscars!
Thank you for reminding us of what a know-it-all idiot Lynn Stairmaster is, and how completely wrong she has been so often.
Lynn's reputation was irretrievably damaged when she crowed that the actress who played the lead in Madonna's "W" would get an Oscar nomination.
Was Lynn Stairmaster also the Marion Cotillard Troll, who predicted she would take home a 2nd Oscar for NINE?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
