The only juggernaut at the Academy Awards will be "Lincoln." It's a master class in acting and it's a film about the single most beloved and revered American figure in history helmed by a distinctly American director, written by acted by the most gifted male actor alive.

You really have no idea about how the Academy works. "Lincoln" hits every major touchstone the members like and want in their films, AND it's a major studio release.

Les Miz might have a shot in a weaker year, but it had no hope this year.

Weinstein will campaign his way to some nominations, but that'll be the extent of it. As the NYT stated today, this is the year the studios will deliver the good for the bulk of the Oscars.

R70, do you *really* think Riva will get a win from critics (maybe) or even a nomination? There's a lot of perhaps untested love for Michael Haneke's Amour in the media but I just can't see this one being much of a crowd pleaser, especially if you've already had to deal with end of life issues. I, honestly, do not understand for whom the film is for. It's not even as grueling as the real thing (nowhere near) and is hardly entertaining. I think all of the love for Amour is going to quietly disappear during awards season. For what it is, it's just been way over hyped.

by Anonymousreply 7412/03/2012

R67, Rachel Weisz was in at No. 12 at Gold Derby with 100/1 chance of winning.

Vulture agrees.

by Anonymousreply 7612/03/2012

I haven't seen Amour, but I have no doubt that Riva has a very good - if not a locked - chance of getting an oscar nomination.

But here I was speaking of who will win the NBR award. As far as the subject of Amour being too heavy, let's look no further than who won best actress from NBR last year. Tilda Swinton for We Need to Talk About Kevin; so clearly the graveness of Amour is not necessarily an impediment to Riva winning (for that matter Weisz or Cotillard could win, and The Deep Blue Sea and Rust and Bone are not exactly laugh riots!!!!).

Also, it may be that AMPAS will decide to nominate both Riva and Wallice, thereby making history for having the oldest and youngest nominees for best actress ever in the same year.

Anything can happen; or so it now seems; let's just hope that sense of no foregone conclusions continues through the season; otherwise it becomes a deadly bore to tune in Oscar night and see only annointed victors.

NY Film Critics Awards are usually (to me) the best award givers. They picks are usually interesting (look it Weisz.) LA Critics awards are interesting too but sometimes a little off beat and obscure. National Board of Review is the worst...they just vote Clooney, Clooney, Clooney so he comes to the dinner.

Anne did not get a majority on the 1st ballot and her support waned on the 2nd ballot, when each voter can submit up to three choices (1st Choice = 3 pts., 2nd Choice = 2 pts., etc.) By the 3rd ballot you can't add any new names.

You're right. I looked up the film and it was released in the fall of 2011 in the UK. Rachel Weisz was nominated for some minor awards but not at the BAFTAs.

Unless the NYFCC award increases her visibility and snags her a Golden Globe I think her chances of an Oscar nom are very slim. Jennifer Lawrence is still the front runner.

by Anonymousreply 10912/04/2012

Yeah, R101? That was already posted at R97. And it doesn't say Anne was a "close" second, it says Anne was the "initial front runner." According to the by-laws, since Anne didn't win on the first ballot but was described as the "initial front runner," at best she had the majority of votes, with each member restricted to one vote, but not 50% of the vote. In the second round, voting opens up to three nominations, from which point support for Anne ebbed away from her.

The voting pattern here is significant in that it suggests more people do not want Anne Hathaway to win an Oscar than people who do want her to win an Oscar.

The interesting thing about the International Press Academy Satellite nominations at R88, is that even though LES MIZ got a ton of performance and design nominations, Tom Hooper failed to get nominated for best director. I'm getting the feeling that the industry is tiring of Hooper and his look-at-me faux artsiness.

A semi-related question: Has a film ever won best picture at the Oscars without even scoring a best director nomination?

by Anonymousreply 11412/04/2012

Wings, Grand Hotel, and Driving Miss Daisy all won Best Picture without the director being nominated. I think Hooper will probably be nominated, though I wish they would go with someone else. He basically won a couple of years ago for a TV movie and that should be award enough, especially when they made Scorsese wait a 100 years and lose to one actor playing director after another.

I think it would be pretty damn surprising if Sally Field won. That would mean two of the acting categories would be won by three time winners, and the academy also gave Streep her third last year. They usually like to spread awards around a little and not give too many to the same person, unless it's Edith Head. Geez, Spielberg would also be in line for his third, if they decided to go all in for Lincoln. That's a lot of potential repetition for a show that is already boring as hell.

by Anonymousreply 11512/04/2012

Spielberg has never won at NYFCC. He even lost for Schindler's List (Jane Campion won instead for The Piano), but he's won twice at the National Society of Film Critics, another NYC based critics group with many of the same members, and a reputation for being the most highbrow of the major awards. It's a little bizarre.

People in the industry like Rachel Weisz. She could definitely pull a nomination, if not a statuette.

I think Lawrence might run out of steam a bit by Oscar night, especially if SLP under performs at the box office. She's so young and already has other opportunities for Oscars - giving it to Lawrence this year would be a bit like giving it to Goldie Hawn for Cactus Flower. It's a bit light.

r135: I love Louise Fletcher in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Yes, I know, she had no career after that. But one of the best performances of all time, male or female.

I love Liv Ullmann, Ingrid Thulin and Bibi Andersson. But then who doesn't?

Isabelle Huppert - she plays the same character all the time, but I'm not holding that against her. She's terrific within her limitations. A true artist... so fearless.

Isabelle Adjani - the exact same thing.

I love Glenn Close, Tilda Swinton, Emma Thompson, Vanessa Redgrave, Glenda Jackson, Gena Rowlands, Ingrid Bergman, Bette Davis, Dietrich, Crawford, Judy Davis, Naomi Watts, Angela Bassett, Juliette Binoche, Cotillard, Blanchett, Penelope Cruz, Catherine Deneuve, Jeanne Moreau, Miou-Miou, and Sandrine Bonnaire.

I loved Virna Lisi in La Reine Margot! Still holds up really well.

Fernanda Montenegro in Central Station will always remain a fave.

My most recent love is for Kirsten Dunst in Melancholia. Easily one of the best performances I've ever seen.

And none of these actresses is in Meryl's league. But that's beside the point.

Streep Troll- How could you leave Chastain off your list for nominees? She will definitely be nominated.

I suppose you're right, r139. Forgot about her. She is so... bland.

If we need to make room for her, Weisz may have to go.

The other four nominees are not going anywhere, for various reasons.

Forgot to say: I also love Romy Schneider, but only her work from the 70s.

She was a major star in France & Germany, and should have been as big a name as Deneuve was in the States. She died early, and it never happened.

Lots of terrific films from the 70s.

So, after Streep my faves are Schneider, Huppert, Adjani, Ullmann and Thulin. And Fletcher, in that one role.

Meryl loon, when was the last time you were gainfully employed.

[quote]Emmanuelle Riva, Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Lawrence, Rachel Weisz, Quenwhatever Wallis.

Yes just like Vanessa Redgrave was going to be a nominee last year and this year right.

[quote]I love Liv Ullmann, Ingrid Thulin and Bibi Andersson. But then who doesn't?

I doubt you have seen a Bibi Andersson film, Meryl loon. On one of the other threads you didn't even know how to spell her name.

How long did it take you to copy and paste all of those names?

r142, I've even seen all their films in Swedish. Because I'm half Swedish!

Let that one marinate in your rotten brain for a while.

Streep troll, you usually annoy me, but I loved that you dissed that horrible child from Beasts of the Southern Shaky Handheld Camera Operated By A Moron Who Was Clearly Drunk Throughout Production.

But regarding Chastain, I think it'll be Cotillard who gets the snub while Weisz gets in.

Chastain Lawrence Riva Wallis Weisz

And I'm not totally buying this Jennifer Lawrence front-runner status. I'd say it would be a three-way race between Lawrence, Chastain and Weisz.
