So in about five hours, the nominations for the 2012 Academy Awards will be released! who will lead? who will upset?

hot favourites include

The-Artist.jpg

a silent movie that's pissing off a lot of people that hate old school things but making the Academy Awards pee themselves

Descendants-posterAU.jpg

some movie about Hawaii that Dean Pelton wrote?

hugo-poster_400x592.jpg

Scorsese's love letter to...France, or kids, or Hit Girl or whatever (which you should see, it's pretty good)



or any number of others! I dunno there's a lot of good stuff out

but the point is that I am suuuuupppeeerrr busy around this time makin' my own movie and working and all that jazz! if there's an intense demand for the pool, I'll see what I can do, but honestly I might have to ask someone else to step up here

PM me if you wanna take the reins and I'll set up the OP however you want, otherwise, happy speculating!

    I haven't seen a single 2011 movie.

    I'll still enter the pool but it will be all guesses.

    Albert Brooks will get a nom, it'll probably pick up cinematography

    2011 was the year of catching up on shit you didn't watch, or telling people that drive owned

    Drive I enjoyed, but it felt overrated.

    Moneyball was the best Brad Pitt Throws Things movie I've ever seen

  • Blake TBlake T Registered User regular
    Oh yeah, moneyball.

    Moneyball was good times.

  • Calamity JaneCalamity Jane That Wrong Love Registered User regular
    oh that's kinda interesting!

    it was in line being little more than a movie about a man optimizing his magic the gathering deck and realizing that if he better utilized his uncommon card instead of his rare ones than he would have something and he loses the tourney anyway, and he shaves he pubes while drinkin bawls root beer

  • OlivawOlivaw good name, isn't it? peach treesRegistered User regular
    Moneyball was good stuff

    It ended in a way I did not expect! That is not how movies based on true stories are supposed to end

    Oh yeah! Moneyball was also excellent.

  • Calamity JaneCalamity Jane That Wrong Love Registered User regular
    moneyball was boring as fuck, and i could get past the fact it was baseball and the fact it was baseball stat crunching centric

  • StaleghotiStaleghoti Registered User

    Moneyball wasn't so much about baseball as it was about math and business and stuff. And sweet Trade Deadline moves

    You know what was shit?

    but holy fuck was it manipulative

    It was a movie that made statistical analysis seem interesting

    I was impressed

    Also Philip Seymour Hoffman was a jerk in that movie, you wanted Brad Pitt to drop kick him in the throat so bad

    It will sweep all the awards

    I've known that since the first trailer

    Period piece, war movie, British costume drama, inspirational, an animal as a primary character

    All it needs is a gay man dealing with discrimination and it would win every single category

    See this is why I haven't seen it.

    Because it's Spielberg just 'berging everywhere. It's animals, war, (guessing kids), handsome people with a small smear of dirt on their face. I've seen it all before.

    Plus I wanted to see tintin more.
