As soon as I saw the trailer I thought Her had potential to be Jonze's best work to date. Don't really see it becoming a huge sleeper, since the material might be too offbeat for some, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.

The 5 movies I'm dying to see this awards season are Her, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Lone Survivor and Out of the Furnace.

I'm very happy to see Her win best picture by the National Board of Review and for them to have Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Saving Mr. Banks and Lone Survivor in their top 10 as well.

Prisoners as best ensemble cast though? Meh.

The last time a film won Best Picture with the NBR and didn't go on to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar was in 2000. Quills! I never saw it. It seems to me that Her would have an uphill battle, though.

Oh man, half these movies won't even make it here, and the other half won't make it in time for the Pedros and Oscars. FML! :(

L.A. and I think alike. Blanchett and Exarchopoulos are in a dead-heat for my two favorite female performances of the year. I'll probably need to rewatch both movies before I break the tie.

Wow. Robert Redford was snubbed at the SAG award nominations.

Ugh. Too much love for August: Osage County.

Lots of love for Lee Daniel's The Butler.

Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips but not for Saving Mr. Banks.


The television nominations were boring.


Here's the link for full list of nominees:

Have you even seen the movie? I'm guessing no, and this seems like a pretty odd thing to say if you haven't.

It also looks like an actor's showcase kind of movie, so it seems pretty reasonable it got a bunch of SAG nominations.

Also, the link doesn't work.

Actually, I have seen it. It played at the Philadelphia Film Festival which I attended and saw it there. It's well acted I suppose, it gets so overwrought and silly and soap opera-y. It's just not very good and in a year full of great performances, it sucks that this movie is getting way too much love, at least by SAG.

Meryl Streep will get an Oscar nom because, well, she's Meryl Streep playing a dramatic role. Kind of like life, death, and taxes.

Yeah, if I had a dollar for every time an actor made a good performance in a bad or mediocre film, I'd be able to move out. :(

These nominations were fairly predictable. The lack of Robert Redford is a bit of a surprise, and with him likely get a Golden Globe nomination due to Bruce Dern being in the comedy category, it's hard to predict how this affects his Oscar potential. Personally, I wasn't a huge fan of the film or performance so I'm not heartbroken, but he seemed like a surefire nominee. Especially with SAG. This might pave the way for Whitaker, or perhaps opens up a slot for someone like Michael B. Jordan or Joaquin Phoenix. Probably not, but you never know. The Academy and SAG can differ on one or two folks in a given category.

If you guys want to nominate Bruhl for a Pedro, you're going to have to put him in the lead category.

I actually have Bruhl pegged in that category. Well, that's a bummer; guess he will be nowhere to find around here come Pedro time then.

Nah man, it's a musical/comedy. Christian Bale's singing is fantastic!

Haha, I acutally just read the AV Club's review and they referred to it as a comedy. The review makes it sound almost entirely comedic. I thought this was just typical Golden Globe politics, but apparently it isn't.

looks to me like Best Picture is a 2 man race - 'Gravity' vs '12 Years A Slave'

DGA has always been the best predictor, and I just don't see the other 3 having a realistic chance.

Quote:
The Directors Guild of America has nominated Alfonso Cuaron (“Gravity”), Paul Greengrass (“Captain Phillips”), Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”), David O. Russell (“American Hustle”) and Martin Scorsese (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) for its top feature film award. The winner will be announced Jan. 25.


Quote:
Opting for a mix of specialty and studio titles, the Producers Guild of America has selected “12 Years a Slave,” “American Hustle,” “Blue Jasmine,” “Captain Phillips,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “Gravity,” “Her,” “Nebraska,” “Saving Mr. Banks” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” as nominees for its Darryl F. Zanuck award.

The winner will be announced Jan. 19 at PGA’s 25th anniversary awards show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel following voting by the PGA’s 6,000 members. The guild decided in 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 under which five to 10 titles can be selected.
