r27, I'm not r22, but for me it was getting older and discovering just how political and bought the Oscars are. Yes, they always have been, but it's so much more so now than then. And with the emergence of the internet and the proliferation of precursor awards, the suspense has largely been taken out of the equation.
Having said that, this year is different in that there are several categories where there is no clear favorite: Best Director and Best Supporting Actor could go any way, and even Best Actress is a three-way race between Lawrence, Riva and Chastain (hoping and praying that Riva wins).

Streep troll's predictions are truly off the mark.
In saying that, as much as I liked Argo, it is just a small well made political thriller. It has a bit of a 70s aesthetic but compare it to Lumet's films from back then.
|by Anonymous||reply 38||02/24/2013|
You don't know that, r37. By now everybody is wondering why the mediocrity that is Argo has won all these precurose awards; they've rightfully concluded it is to spite the Academy's choice of excluding Affleck from a best director nom.
No way do Oscar voters want to be part of bashing their own institution.
Argo fatigue has set in. Amour, meanwhile, has been building up momentum; its visceral truth and power is too hard to ignore for the Academy.
I predict BP for Amour.

Oscars: LAPD plans heavy security; Hollywood streets shut down
February 24, 2013 | 10:40 am
The Los Angeles Police Department will be on high alert during the Academy Awards, and numerous streets around the show's Hollywood venue will be closed Sunday.
The LAPD has not released any details of its security plans. A law enforcement source told The Times Sunday that security will be heavy but that there are no extra precautions being taken this year. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because the security measures were ongoing.
The Oscars are being held Sunday evening at the Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center.
Typically, the LAPD has snipers with 50-caliber rifle on roofs and a robotic forklift known as "Batcat" capable of lifting a bomb-filled truck. Even the way the limousines enter the area has been designed to slow their passage by forcing them to weave around concrete barriers. Several hundred officers in uniform will staff checkpoints and road blocks while a couple hundred are working as private security, donning tuxedos to provide personal and red-carpet protection.
Hollywood Boulevard was to be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive starting at 10 a.m. Sunday. Public buses were to be rerouted, according to the Oscars' website.
Additionally, the Highland Avenue offramps from the 101 Freeway will close.

R35...I like you, but I disagree with most of your picks. I would like any film, but Argo to win. Just not in the mood to see Ben Afflecks huge ego on the stage.
|by Anonymous||reply 43||02/24/2013|
Predicting the winners is easy. Let's see if you can predict who in Hollywood at this very moment is:
* Sucking down Jack Daniels from a flask
* Taking a handful of "prescription" drugs
* Doing a couple lines of coke
* Shooting heroin
* Smoking crystal meth
While you can answer Lindsay Lohan for each of these and be correct, you will lose points for creativity.

Anne's only crime is wanting an award too much. Lawrence bombed with two ill timed jokes that were more obnoxious than funny. And when she could have apologized for making the Streep comment, she instead gets an attitude because everyone is supposed to know her favorite films and quotes by heart.
