Default Re: 85th Annual Academy Awards (2013)

Everybody loves Django the same way they loved Inglourious Basterds: a great time, but hardly "The One" for Quentin. From what I've gathered, it's a hyper-violent hilarious crowd pleaser. Nobody's describing the movie as Tarantino's crowing achievement or anything, so I don't expect it to get too much awards love outside of the screenplay, acting and technical categories.

But then, I wasn't expecting Zero Dark Thirty to sweep everyone off their feet like this either, so who knows. I'm very much looking forward to ZDT, because at this point the only other "contenders" that I've been particularly impressed with were The Master and Life of Pi. I very much enjoyed Lincoln, The Silver Linings Playbook and Argo, but I personally wouldn't have declared them BP material. I also saw Anna Karenina today, and would probably put that one above those 3 as well. So while I truly did enjoy them all, I can't help but feel a little let-down by the "front-runners" so far.

That said, I'm kinda loving how up-in-the-air this race has been this year. It's not as much fun when the winner was already made clear way back in September at TIFF (which is basically what happened in the last 2 races).
