    Wow. It’s been a good day for Nicholas Winding-Refn.

    It’s nice to see Drive popping up lately in critics’ list. Maybe it could still have some Oscar chances?

    tilda been getting loads of loves by critics.

    Man. Emmanuel Lubezki is going to get coronated at the Oscars.

  • Goblin King

    I don’t want to get excited for Drive yet but I’m starting to feel a momentum building. That opening scene was AMAZING and better than two hours of Brad Pitt Brad Pitting his way through Moneyball. And who doesn’t want a movie with a hot pink title and silk scorpion jackets to totally kick ass?

  • Juan

    God i do hope Refn gets a nom but that would just be too awesome to happen

  • manrico1967

    Hooray for Michael and Tilda!

    I hope Lubezki wins the Oscar. He deserved to win in 95 (A Little Princess) and 99 (Sleepy Hollow).

  • forg

    Rango is killing it! Glad Muppets won for original song as well :)

  • joe

    Lol at all the Descendants love from Houston but no Clooney. Really, Shailene Woodley?

  • Beth Stevens

    Refn, Fassy, Tilda, Lubezki… yay!!

    Not a lot of consensus on best picture so far. I’m enjoying the variety, though I wish Tree of Life and Hugo would pick up a few more wins.

    The Artist – 6
    Tree of Life – 3
    The Descendants – 2
    Hugo – 1

  • Macy

    Drive is gaining momentum…good to see!! Hope the Academy sees the same way too.

  • Ryman

    Go Refn! More deserving than Hazanavicius.

  • Glenn

    Tilda again – loving the love! she must surely be a lock now!

  • steve50

    Refn – wonderful. Fassie and Tilda – stay the course.

    Looks like its now between Tilda Swinton and Michelle Williams ….. i thought Meryl Streep would sweep everything. Great to see Refn winning too. Also i think Shailene Woodley, Patton Oswalt and Charlize Theron needs more attention …. i am rooting for them.
