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.


Uhmm. Russell also nominated by the DGA ! Happy for him :-)

Well, what else do you expect? Last year, it went to Life of Pi. I thought that's why we have the Pedros. 8-)

Exactly my feeling as well. But could it be that BAFTA has some restrictions on who can be nominated for these awards. I am not sure if that is the case. And even it were, Lea Seydoux is nominated for the rising star award. If anyone deserves to be nominated for that, it's Adele.

The bigger outrage (or at least just as big) to me is that the movie got an original screenplay nomination. I mean, seriously, how fucking hard was that movie to write? Is there anything impressive about that film's screenplay? Goodness gracious.

Also, Her not getting a cinematography nod, or editing (or anything, actually), really gets my goat. In places it reminded me of a Malick film, in how he shoots people. It's used to show loneliness and isolation in Her more than in a Malick movie, but it's there. It also uses the futuristic L.A. perfectly. It's just a brilliantly put together movie in every regard.

Cinematography in Her was good. The Gravity script also contains things that make no sense. Why does Clooney continue to be pulled away from Bullock even after she grabs hold of his tether? There's no vortex pulling on him, nothing. That should easily have saved him. His death corresponded to the death of physics.

I'm watching her after my game tonight, and I'm beyond excited. I did read, though, that Her only opened for a week (before opening again in February) and only a few screeners went out, so it had no real shot in Britian. Which is lame, but hopefully a legit oversight.

Even Neil deGrasse Tyson is rolling his eyes at you right now.

Ahhh, that makes a little more sense.

I guess. Thought it was pretty much out in the open by this point, but just corrected it.

I'll have to drink a bottle of red stag tomorrow night to unremember that
