Actually glad that Hoffman is the only one nominated from The Master. Phoenix is histrionic (although how else could anyone play that part? still, Hoffman is much more effective; Phoenix's role is per se overdone) and Adams gives one of her least memorable performances in an ill-defined role.

So Master is ok. What makes no sense are:

No nominations for Amour, especially for Riva.

And they nominated Bardem in Skyfall (hammy and not in a good way, great actor but Jesus Christ not for this!) but not Dench (who gives one of the year's best performances) - now, that's just so wrong.

R22, I think that Naomi Watts is the most vulnerable here. She could be replaced by either Emanuelle Riva or Quvenzhané Wallis come Oscar nomination day.

I don't think these will match up with the Oscar noms. Hugh Jackman will be replaced by Phoenix, Kidman won't be in, Mirren won't be in (swap with Wallis or Riva), Bardem probably won't be in.

No really, I love Maggie as much as anyone but her performance in "Marigold" was the least of all the good performances in that film. Tom Wilkinson, for one, was beautiful in it. Glad it got an ensemble nom!

Hated Phoenix in "The Master". Hoffman well deserves his nom.

And Tommy Lee Jones is more deserving of a "Lincoln" nom because...???? Sheesh. Much better supporting male performances than his in that film.

These are always such stupid awards anyway. Like the first order of business in a actor's union is to have another awards show. So dumb.

by Anonymousreply 3712/12/2012

I hated The Master. There's one good scene -- Phoenix walking back and forth between the window and the wall -- but the rest is so tedious. Phoenix, in particular, is annoying. It's one of those performances that tells me more about Phoenix's own personal foibles than it does about the character.

And R34, you can't be serious about the Academy not nominating Jackman. They'll drop Hawkes or Cooper if they drop anyone.

Actually a Cooper snub is probably likely. Akin to Wahlberg's snub for the last David Russell movie, 'The Fighter.'

by Anonymousreply 3812/12/2012

Everybody in The Academy votes for all categories but only actors nominate actors, Sound nominates sound and so forth, so these could be the Oscar noms and R34, you might as well leave the conversation if you think Jackman wont be nominated.

by Anonymousreply 3912/12/2012

I have three friends who were chosen to be nominators this year. They actually watched all the screeners at home and seemed to take the process very seriously. I watched Les Miz, and The Paperboy with one and I can tell you he voted for Kidman. It's the kind of no holds barred performance he likes. I thought it was Black Swan acting- trashy and fun- but an award?

The Oscars are much more political and there will be differences, but the SAG nominations are close to what the Emmys used to be- older people with free time voting for what they actually like.

by Anonymousreply 4012/12/2012

No one needs to "leave the conversation" because they're doubting Jackman's chances at an Oscar nomination, Jacintha the Judge and Jury of the World at R39. I see his SAG nomination akin to Richard Gere's for Chicago a decade ago--pulled along by the strength of his film, but missing out come Oscar nominations morning. I'd even say that he's shakier than Bradley Cooper who is one of the best things about SLP. The Best Actor category this year is the most competitive category. Anyone could make a good argument for including any one of 8-9 gentlemen.

(My gut is telling me that Jackman's spot goes to a surprise nominee, someone like Jean-Louis Trintignant.)

Jackman will be nominated. He's the fucking lead that ties every thread of the film together, so comparing him to Gere is ridiculous.

This is regardless of whether or not the film is any good though. The hype is already there. Unlike The Sessions. Hawkes might get it cos he's playing someone with polio, but the hype around that film burst when reviews came out.

R44, so was Joseph Fiennes in Shakespeare in Love. So was Paul Giamatti in Sideways. Where were their Oscar nominations? While supporting players in their respective films were nominated (and won) by the way. Besides, the Academy doesn't like being TOLD who they have to nominate. All I'm saying is that I think Jackman's position is not as strong as you might think.

[quote]HELEN HUNT / Cheryl

So that's who Cheryl is! We should have figured that out years ago.

by Anonymousreply 4612/12/2012

I'm basing my idea that Jackman could be dropped on the hunch that Les Mis will underperform. SAG nominations have typically included "popular mainstream" performances that are ignored by the Academy. They're ASSUMING Jackman should be nominated. SAG incorrectly had Hillary Swank in Conviction, Gere in Chicago, and WINS by Viola Davis, Meryl in Doubt, Annette Bening in American Beauty, Zelwegger in Chicago, Ed Harris, Eddie Murphy and Albert Brooks in supporting roles.

I think Riva will be nominated for Actress while Jean Louis Trintignant, while a legend, will not be. Denzel could be dropped as well, I feel like Flight came and went and will be even more forgotten by Oscar time. I find it hard to believe they'll ignore Amy Adams in favor of someone like Kidman in one of the most panned movies of the year.

Unfortunate that the GAME OF THRONES cast wasn't nominated. I would replace HOMELAND with GoT. I just started watching HOMELAND and even though I enjoy it, as far as the critics and the Emmys are concerned, I do find it a tad overrated and the acting, though good, is not all that. I've seen better on 24 and Claire Danes' performance is ANNOYING AS HELL.

They could've at least gave Peter Dinkledge a nomination.

by Anonymousreply 5312/12/2012

As someone alluded to above, SAG has a relatively small nominating committee. The whole of SAG does not select the nominees whereas the whole of the actors' branch of the Academy does select the nominees.

Also for SAG the film enters the actor in the category they want, e.g., supporting actor rather than lead actor. That's why Jennifer Connelly lost a SAG for A Beautiful Mind. The film's admin person handling the SAG nom mistakenly submitted her nom for Lead Actress and though she got the nom - probably supplanting Nicole that year - she lost the win. She would most assuredly have won in the Supporting Actress category.

I, too, am rather sick of all the awards for Maggie Smith. She is fine in Downton Abbey but it isn't anything special. I was surprised once when I saw her some years back on Charlie Rose - she wasn't very bright or insightful. Unless that is a result of her age.

Best performance of the year, male OR female.

And dear xenophobic r49: please be advised that Jean-Louis Trintignant was the lead in "A Man and a Woman", one of the biggest mainstream hits of the 1960s - in the United States of America.

The Academy does know who he is, much like they knew who Max von Sydow was last season.

Not saying JLT will get in; if he won't, it will be because the field is very crowded this year.

And now, r49, go back to watching your favorite film starring The Rock.

by Anonymousreply 5612/12/2012

Oh, and I agree with everybody here that Maggie Smith has played the same character over and over, ever since "A Room with a View".

She should take a page from Meryl's book, and challenge herself with a new character every single time she does a movie.

MS is one of the most overrated actors out there, and that is due to the upper-class background of her roles. We are conditioned to revere the upper-class, not tear them down, and consequently she receives nom after nom for the exact same performance, questions unasked. It's the same impulse that makes so many Americans look up to the Queen; MS is an extension of what QE II embodies.

Compare this with communist Vanessa Redgrave, who often plays lower income characters ("Song for Marion" just this year), but who is shut out every single awards season. (And no, her anti-zionist comments in 1978 have nothing to do with that these days).

Happy Naomi Watts got a nom btw.

And Nicole Kidman: gross!

Enough with her already.

"A Man and a Woman" also won best foreign language film and I think also original screenplay.

For a foreign film, it was a big hit with the academy.

by Anonymousreply 6412/12/2012

It was also nominated for Best Director, so it got 3 big noms (Actress, Director, Original Screenplay) plus Foreign Language Film, and won 2 (Foreign Film and Screenplay). That's pretty impressive for a foreign film, especially back then, I reckon, when the Oscars were still mainly an All-American affair, with the occasional Brit.

by Anonymousreply 6612/12/2012

Exactly, r64.

And don't forget the original score, which is a signature melody of the 1960s - to this day. That one alone made the film famous, in the USA.

It was a cultural phenomenon, as far as foreign films go. Only "Jules et Jim" and Bergman/Fellini could compare with its reach.

And it certainly put JLT and Anouk Aimee on the map.

by Anonymousreply 6712/12/2012

There is a difference between a cultural phenomenon and a well liked movie. A Man and A Woman was a surprise hit that did well with critics and the Academy, but hardly a cultural phenomenon.

JLT was also in "Z", Foreign Film winner and Best Picture nominee; "Three Colors: Red", a Best Director/Best Screenplay nominee from '94, and the classics "And God Created Woman" and "The Conformist". MANY Academy members will know this and many others will at least know the name.

R73, "The Great Gatsby" got moved to the summer. That was supposed to be his major Oscar role. "Django" was just a fallback.

by Anonymousreply 7512/12/2012

r70, it was a cultural hit precisely because it was a hit with the Academy, at a time when the Oscars meant more to the public, due to lack of competing media (the internet, etc.) -- cultural attention wasn't fractured like it is today.

Also, the musical score became a hit, and Anouk Aimee was a big star in women's mags, a fashion icon, an "it" girl, all through this film.

The cultural zeitgeist shone on this film, and touched a nerve with the intelligent/cultured public, back when the mass movie going audience was still intelligent.

Furthermore, the very title of "Man and Woman" did all the work for the film. It cut through, spoke to everybody, and can even be seen a prelude to films like "Love Story", which was made after the success of this film - "A Man and a Woman" set the template.

by Anonymousreply 7612/12/2012

Not true, r75. Django was always supposed to be his Oscar vehicle: A villain in a Tarantino film (Waltz won for playing a villain in the last Tarantino film).

From the early reviews it seems like Waltz is the MVP with Jackson a close second. Dicaprio will get a globe nod tomorrow, though.

Trintignant is more well known to film buffs than Riva. Until "Amour" she was mostly known for "Hiroshima Mon Amour".

She has the flashy, more baity role in the movie but both deserve oscar noms for their brilliant performances, but if Riva gets in she will not win. Despite the subject, "Amour" is still a Haneke film and that's probably why it will also lose foreign film to the academy-friendly "Untouchables".

by Anonymousreply 8112/12/2012

I agree r79. In spite of it proving in its first two seasons alone that GoT is one of the best TV shows ever, it's still unfortunately considered by some in the entertainment media as just another genre show not to be taken seriously. The oh so anal and foolish EW TV “Critic” Ken Tucker just left it off of his Top 10 list but I guess that can’t damage his credibility more than it already is. The Emmys has at least nominated GoT for Best Drama two years in a row but couldn’t find it to give it well earned nods for writing and directing. GoT, with the exception of Peter Dinkledge, has an all British cast that’s can do more with just a look and two lines of dialogue than most American actors can do with a whole scene. Shame on SAG!

r90 is exhibit A of what I described at r57.

Thanks for proving my point, r57.

Oh, and if Smith would be as good as Redgrave in those parts, how come she *never tries her hand* at these roles? Dench too challenges herself with disparate roles. But not MS! If one 77 yo British actress can get different roles, why not the other 77 yo British actress?

Not only is MS overrated, but she's also quite lazy. And classist, it seems.


r91, I'm afraid that won't happen (me breaking down).

I won't be surprised if they make yet another poor decision - I mean Clooney, Witherspoon, Bullock, Kidman, Berry all in the space of the last ten years..

I certainly don't expect much from the Academy these days. Well, at least they got Streep right this year. And they brought Cotillard to our attention. Two good decisions that barely excuse their terrible choices of recent years past.

by Anonymousreply 9512/12/2012

I think Field has a real shot of winning it. She's well liked in Hollywood. Geffen and Hanks are close friends of hers. Julia Roberts adores her. Spielberg and Day Lewis are in her corner. She has the big shots.

I like Hathaway, but I'm completely turned off by her obvious campaigning, which is not coming off good at all. I think people have gotten tired of these blatant, desperate PR campaigns that have cropped up in the last few years. Although in Hathaway's defense, it worked for Kate Winslet and Melissa Leo, so you can't fault her for trying.

by Anonymousreply 9612/12/2012

Oh, r94.

Because Streep amassing 14 nominations and 3 wins is proof of her shortcomings,

while Field with 3 wins and ZERO further nominations proves she's a more accomplished actress.


Field lucked out three times, and has turned in numerous laughable and borderline offensive performances (Hello, "Not Without My Daughter") for the rest of her career. Not to mention an embarrassing acceptance speech in 1985.

Streep's work is stellar 90 % of the time.

Needless to say, we must demonize a woman this talented, and elevate a lesser actress to greatness who clearly doesn't deserve it - to feel secure.

On hearing Field's name called, he doused himself in clarified butter and ignited himself. The Academy has not commented on the incident."

Streep's work in IT'S COMPLICATED is as embarrassing as anything that Field has done. And I say that as a big Steep (and Field) fan.

I was expecting Anthony Hopkins' name, then I realized, like Joaquin Phoenix, he railed against the oscar process. Vanessa Redgrave isn't being offered choice roles because of that 1970's incident. It's similar to their ignorance of native americans after Brando had the Filipina/German actress dressed in Indian regalia refuse his oscar for "The Godfather". The academy has a long memory! (Not that Phoenix cares a rat's behind!)

When do the screeners get mailed?

Come here, Norman. Hurry up. The Meryl loons! The Meryl loons! They're welcoming us back.

I attended a screening of Django last week. Leo is very, very good in this. I don't much like him as a leading man. I find his performances to be soulless and constipated, but he really excels in this.

It's a great role, the writing is amazing, and he really fearlessly cuts loose and tears into it. The fact that it is so different from anything he's ever done will work in his favor.

When Django is released and the word gets out, he'll start getting more momentum for this. Waltz is good, yes, but it doesn't even approach what he did in Inglorious Basterds.

Surprised Anthony Hopkins didn't get nominated for Hitchcock. I thought he was great. Also, Elizabeth McGovern had her strongest season on Downton Abbey with the episode after Sybil died but didn't get a supporting nom.

I liked Silver Linings Playbook but I don't think Bradley Cooper deserved a nomination. Jackie Weaver should've been nominated, though....

Lincoln screeners got mailed out this week to voters. This was unexpected.

Does anyone know where this will be streamed? I don't have cable.
