Default 85th Annual Academy Awards (2013)

The 2012 Oscars are OVER! The 2013 Oscars time is now!

I know it is early, but there is a lot to speculate even a year away:

This is a quick list of the potential runners for BP:

THE FRONT-RUNNING LOOKING:

Lincoln (Spielberg and Daniel Day Lewis in a bio pic for Abraham Lincoln)
Selma (Lee Daniels makes a film about the African American rights and Martin Luther King)
Les Miserables (Tom Hooper directs great ensemble in a dark musical adaptation of a great novel)
Django Unchained (Tarantino gets the yet another amazing cast in a western.)
Gangster Squad (Amazing Cast and an adaptation about the Los Angeles mob from the 40's and 50's)
The Master (Paul Thomas Anderson returns with strong cast and...we it's Paul Thomas Anderson)

THE POTENTIAL TECHNICAL CATEGORIES FAVORITES:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
(Art Direction, Costume Design, Film Editing, Score, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Effects, Makeup)
The Dark Knight Rises
(Cinematography, Art Direction, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Visual Effects)
Prometheus
(Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Visual Effects)
Dark Shadows
(Costume Design, Art Direction, Makeup)

I have been doing a extended research on these Oscars and the players in the race.

Tomorrow I will post a full list of predictions of every category!

Start the discussion...

Some of the hot questions:

1) Will Lincoln fail as J.Edgar?
2) Can The Dark Knight Rises finally get a BP nomination or it has to settle on some technical nods again.
3) Can The Hobbit do a LOTR presentation at the Oscars?

The first thing TDKR needs to do is be as good as The Dark Knight, then we can worry about it being a candidate.

Day-Lewis has this in a lock. Only other contender should be DiCaprio because "it is his turn to win"

I don't know. An Anderson-directed Philip Seymour Hoffman could be deadly. But then again, has there been any word on whether or not The Master will have a 2012 release?

Last time PTA made a movie, it had DDL giving a powerhouse performance. Could happen again and Hoffman is certainly capable of it. And it appears to be a Weinstein movie.

If the acting holds up, I'd expect that Django Unchained will get nominations for half of the acting categories, both Best Actor for Foxx and Best Supporting for Waltz and Leo. It would be good for both (Foxx and Waltz) to prove that neither of them are a one year wonder (win an Oscar one year only to never be nominated ever again). Unfortunately, Kerry Washington will probably be left out of the female acting categories.

Yes. I expect The Silver Linings Playbook and Django Unchained to be the Weinsteins' go-to Oscar bait. Plus any movies they buy at Cannes later this year...

This is the first page of the 84th Academy Award thread. Look at some of the front runners being called at this time last year:

Contagion, J. Edgar, The Beaver, and We Bought a Zoo are brought up for best picture. Some of the best acting stand outs were Ryan Gosling, Mel Gibson (Hollywood will never forgive him), Elizabeth Olsen and Kirsten Dunst.

Oh, and there is not one single mention of The Artist until page 8 (which wasn't reached until 6 months after the thread was started).

My point is, it is almost impossible to predict these at this point in the game. There are always a couple of small art house movies or under the radar foreign films that no one even hears about until November and always rake in a few awards. Plus you never know when a big Oscar bait movie will crash and bomb critically like J. Edgar or Incredibly Loud and Extremely Close.

Noone would consider J. Edgar an Oscar Porn movie if they had known from the beginning if it was going to be a romance story, and i for one loved it for being one. Not to mention the way the story unfolded with it's non-linear story telling.

This movie got seriously undeserved hate simply because Eastwood chose to taggle the truth which was Edgar's homosexuality.

Quite interesting. I did realize that the Best Original Score category could be damned amazing though, wow

I think the exact opposite. I would have preferred for it to be kind of a love story but the movie got bogged down in just being a mostly regular old biopic with a horrible framing device of an old Hoover telling stories about how he became who he became.

Yes there was a slight twist in the end but it doesn't really help the film in my eyes. I wish Eastwood would have focused more on the love story but he didn't and thus the movie was way worst off because of it.

"The Avengers" needs to get a best picture nomination.

Ok, seriously, never will that happen, but I sure think it could get some nods in categorys "Best Visual Effects" and "Best Sound Mixing".

Also "Prometheus" could surprise us all, don t you think? Sure, nothing for "Best Picture", but maybe "Best Directing" and "Best Visual Effects".

I really hope "Django Unchained" gets some high-class nominations, esspacially "Acting Oscars".

Django may get it for Leo (in pursuit of his first Oscar), Waltz and Foxx (to prove that they are not one hit wonders), but that's probably it. Kerry Washington would be a real longshot based on what I have heard about her role in the screenplay. Leo would probably win as he may be due.

i was wrong about Leo and Edgar. i think Leo would have a bigger chance winning with Django then with Gatsby if DDL was not playing Lincoln in a Spielberg movie.

I agree with the Oscars on very little but Leo rightfully did not get a nom for J. Edgar. Like the film his performance was nothing special.

Is Rust and Bone or Lowlife coming out this year? I expect Marion Cotillard to be in the mix for either of those for Lead Actress.

Also, Samantha Barks for Supporting Actress if she does at least decent as Eponine (baitiest female role in Les Miserables). Anne Hathaway for Lead Actress maybe.

Jennifer Lawrence too for Silver Linings Playbook. I think it's for lead.

And Helen Hunt for The Surrogate.

Hopefully Keira Knightley gets added to the mix for Anna Karenina.

TDKR is gonna get nominated for all awards! And it will win! If it doesn't win then that is a disgrace! If it doesn't get nominated for best picture then we should all petition the Academy to increase the number of best picture nominations to 50!

I almost thought you were being serious.

Seriously though TDKR's is not getting a best picture nod and Nolan isn't getting one for director. Bookmark this and pull it up if I'm wrong.
