awards tour 2013

As the awards season heats up, Rotten Tomatoes is going to keep track of the total amount of awards each movie has won so far. :-)

Sony's "Skyfall" crashed the kudos season Wednesday, becoming the first Bondpic to garner a nod from the Producers Guild of America, whose 10 nominees included an otherwise unsurprising mix of studio and specialty titles including Warner Bros.' "Argo"; DreamWorks' "Lincoln"; Focus' "Moonrise Kingdom"; Universal's "Les Miserables"; the Weinstein Co.'s "Django Unchained" and "Silver Linings Playbook"; Fox's "Life of Pi" and Fox Searchlight's "Beasts of the Southern Wild"; and "Zero Dark Thirty," also from Sony.

The PGA, which announced the noms for its Darryl F. Zanuck award Wednesday, will reveal the winner Jan. 26 at its awards gala at the Beverly Hilton. The guild decided in July 2011 to stick to 10 nominees for its top feature award rather than follow the revised voting procedures of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

Of the 10 nominees, "Skyfall" is by far the biggest box office grosser, with more than $1 billion worldwide. It's also the first notable overall nomination for the Sam Mendes-directed pic, which so far has picked up bids from the Screen Actors Guild (Javier Bardem for supporting actor), the Golden Globes (original song) and the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. (several categories), among others.

The PGA award has become a strong indicator of Oscar sentiment in recent years, matching the Oscar for best picture in 16 of the last 23 -- including the last five, with "The Artist," "The King's Speech," "The Hurt Locker," "Slumdog Millionaire" and "No Country for Old Men." The PGA winner last diverged from the Oscar best picture for the 2006 award when "Little Miss Sunshine" won while the Academy opted for "The Departed."

The match between the PGA's nominations and the Oscar best picture noms is generally about 80%. Last year, seven films were nominated for both; "Bridesmaids," "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and "Ides of March" scored only PGA mentions, while "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and "Tree of Life" received Academy noms but were spurned by the PGA.

Notable omissions from the PGA nominations included "Amour," "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "The Dark Knight Rises," "The Master" and "Rust and Bone."

Tough break for Ann Dowd

'Magnolia Pictures wouldn't pay for screeners, so the character actress spent $13,000 for her own; Oscar winner Melissa Leo tells THR she should be reimbursed'

Ben Affleck, Kathryn Bigelow, Tom Hooper, Ang Lee, and Steven Spielberg have been nominated for feature film honors at the DGA Awards. All except Affleck are past nominees and winners of the DGA prize.

Affleck ("Argo"), Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Hooper ("Les Miserables"), Lee ("Life of Pi"), and Spielberg ("Lincoln") have good reason to be optimistic about their chances for Oscar nominations Thursday -- even if they can't be quite assured.

In the past five years, 21 of the 25 DGA nominees have gone on to receive Oscar nominations, thanks to the large overlap between DGA and Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences membership. The only exceptions have been Sean Penn (2007's "Into the Wild"), Christopher Nolan (2008's "The Dark Knight" and 2010's "Inception") and David Fincher (2011's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo").

At the same time, only twice in the past decade have all five DGA nominees gone on to Academy Award noms: 2005 and 2009.

I think there's a really good chance those 5 will be the Best Director nominees. The 4 differences in DGA and Academy nominations in the past 5 years have been for movies that aren't necessarily very Oscar-friendly. None of the 5 nominated this year are exactly controversial or risque, so it seems like a pretty safe bet.

Affleck, Spielberg, Hooper, and Bigelow are locks. Lee is the only one I could even fathom not getting an Academy nomination, but I think he's pretty close to a lock, as well.

Yeah, Lee's the weak one here. I haven't seen Life of Pi yet, but I've gotten the impression that it's fading. The Academy has a tendency to go down the "auteur" route (e.g. Malick last year, Lynch for Mulholland Drive, Schnabel for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Leigh for Vera Drake), but, you know, sometimes they don't.

My guess is that if anyone breaks in, it's Haneke or Anderson. You could make an argument for O'Russell and Tarantino, but they don't seem to fit the mold of the "fifth director" nomination, not that that's how they do things. This is the Oscars, people. Stats only help you so much.

I'd start hugging random people on the street if Haneke got a Best Director nomination. When they greeted me with confusion or hostility, I'd simply say, "Haneke, motherfucker!"

If I had any money, I'd use it to pay off Oscar voters to assure this to happen.
