Special Achievement

Honorary Satellite Award

  • Ryan Coogler

Breakthrough Performance Award

  • Sophie Nelisse, The Book Thief

Best Ensemble, Motion Picture

  • Nebraska
  • Jordan

    Hey Amy Adams! Just saw American Hustle last night and she’s so great in it. Could see it repeating SLP’s four acting noms.

  • James

    Lead actor is so ridiculously stacked this year. I feel like this happens more often than not. I mean you look at a year like 09

    George Clooney-Up in the Air
    Jeff Bridges-Crazy Heart
    Jeremy Renner-The Hurt Locker
    Morgan Freeman-Invictus
    Colin Firth-A Single Man
    Sam Rockwell-Moon
    Matt Damon-The Informant
    Michael Stuhlbarg-A Serious Man
    Nicolas Cage-Bad Lieutenant, Port of Call New Orleans

    Maybe they should boost this category to 10.

  • Vily

    Leo got in but Jonah Hill is not nominated. Huh. All the other pundits kept saying how Jonah Hill is a lock and Leo is in the 6th slot. Come on! The next couple of weeks will be crazy!

  • Gautam

    Ha. It’s funny how even awards committee have also started doing Oscar Predictions. No originaility whatsoever. It seems they browsed through Gold Derby expert Oscar predictions and decided to hand out nominations.

  • Ryan Adams

    Weird how I was saying last night: Watch over the next few weeks to see if Gravity fails to get screenplay nominations.

  • Vily

    Prisoners is getting some Noms. I told you it’s a great movie…

  • James

    Right about that Ryan. It’s a great film, but shouldn’t get in for screenplay. It’s gonna get plenty of other nominations. Let someone else in the writer’s club.

  • Pat

    ‘Labor Day’ shut out?
    Boo-urns to that.

  • Pepper

    Interesting list of BP nods – happy my two favorites (Blue Jasmine and All is Lost) made it, but there are some surprises as well (no The Butler or Dallas Buyers Club, and Philomena is in). And yay for Arcade Fire and Lana del Rey.

  • James

    Gyllenhaal, Deakins, and Eastwood’s editors(Eastwood probably would have loved the film) got some love for Prisoners. Hope that continues.

  • Vily

    12 years has Score and cinematography (split with Prisoners and Gravity) going for it. Wolf has editing and director possibly and maybe actor (blasphemy at this point but I am Leo fan after all)

  • Vily

    Prisoners was completely disregarded by Sasha and I am still bummed by that. Anyway… The way I see it is a three way race between 12 years/Gravity and Wolf..

  • Pepper

    Wait, no Nebraska either? That’s a shocker.

  • Ryan Adams

    Gravity can clear the table in almost all the categories, but its relative paucity of acting nominations and screenplay just on the bubble of 5 slots, it will get nominations totals from surprising rivals.

    Though Chris won’t be surprised that Saving Mr Banks got 6 nominations today, and Paddy won’t be surprised Philomena got 4.

    Gravity still gets 8 nominations though, and 12 Years a Slave has a total of 10.

    Captain Phillips – 5
    Prisoners – 3

    Although remember, this is just the International Press Academy and who even told them they had permission to use the word Academy to name their club?

  • James

    I think she dug the movie overall, but realistically she probably doesn’t think it has much of a chance anymore which… probably doesn’t. Who knows? We will see. Despite being a genre film(I don’t look at that as a bad thing, but the academy might), it has certain qualities that will appeal to the Academy and I don’t think it’s any coincidence that they got editors Joel Cox and Gary D. Roach. I’d be happy with two noms for Gyllenhaal(supporting even if it’s kind of a co-lead) and Deakins. Although I think Jóhann Jóhannsson’s score is beautiful work and deserving.

  • murtaza

    prisoner was ridiculously mounted with uneven characters particularly of Maria Bello and Viola Davis. After watching 8 seasons of Dexter, it looked predictable and very stale.

  • Ryan Adams

    I think Sasha simply wasn’t grabbed by Prisoners (because she had it figured out in the first half hour) but it’s a player for Cinematography because Roger Deakins makes everything he shoots look like $100 million bucks.

    I liked it alright, but aside from Deakins I do fear it will fall just just outside the groups of 5 in all the other categories. Still, nice to see a good solid thriller be appreciated with select nominations this morning.

    I mean, let’s be realistic. If the Academy barely showed any love for a film as classy as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, then Prisoners is going to feel like slumming for a lot of Oscar voters.

  • brace

    their website has different nomination list, but it’s so messy. have they send you this list?

  • Vily

    I guess you are right. Cinematography was great, but on a second look. It wasn’t even in the top 10 nominated films so I guess you are right. I still liked it though. But this year there are just too many other movies…

  • Ryan Adams

    They sent us a press release via email. I reformatted for better legibility, but the nominees we show here are just copy/paste. What are the major discrepancies between what they gave us and what they have on the Satellite site?

  • James

    True. Although I still think Tattoo getting an editing win is one of the most unexpected and coolest wins.

    Kind of love the film(I think I do despite a not entirely satisfying arguably predictable answer but one that still makes sense), but I can’t disagree with you regarding Bello and Davis.

  • JK1193

    Happy about Jake Gyllenhaal, bummed about Hugh Jackman, whose performance in Prisoners I felt was much more powerful. Pleasantly surprised to see Ryan Gosling up for Place Beyond the Pines.

  • brace

    I guess they fixed it.

  • Vily

    The Butler is a joke and the sooner it’s forgotten the better. Oprah… Please..,

  • James

    So wait Breaking Bad didn’t get in for Drama? On the plus side Nikolaj Coster-Waldau got some love for Game of Thrones. Same with Stoll who missed out on the Emmys. Highmore over Cranston? I thought Highmore was…kind of….bad. Homeland’s incredibly problematic season got some recognition?

  • phantom

    I don’t like the Satellite Awards, it always feels like they just go for the 5+ contenders in every category who are most widely considered for Oscar nominations early on. If they went with strictly five OR showed some edge every now and then I may be able to take them seriously, until then they are just one notch under Critics Choice who basically do the same only with a bigger platform.

    Don’t get me wrong, for entertainment value I follow all these precursors, but in recent years I only REALLY cared for the guilds, the Bafta and a few critics groups (NYFCC, LAFCA, NSFC etc.). The BFCA and HFPA seem to be more interested in meeting the stars than watching said stars’ films.

  • Ryan Adams

    I see. They gave Special Achievement Awards to Ryan Coogler and the ensemble cast of Nebraska.

    And Breakthrough Performer to Sophie Nelisse in The Book Thief

    So we added those to the post. Thanks, brace!

  • brace

    @ Ryan Adams
    not just that. few minutes ago they didn’t have Adams listed as best actress nominee, and they had only three actors nominated for mini series and Lizzy Caplan in best series category, and few more omissions and errors. I guess the page wasn’t finished when I looked. it’s good now!

  • Patrick

    Weird that 12 Years A Slave didn’t get in for production design.
    Weird that Gravity didn’t get in for original screenplay.
    Weird that Captain Phillips didn’t get in for film editing.

  • Ryan Adams

    Can’t honestly say I disrespect any of these nominees though.

    I’d like to see more love for Nebraska and Fruitvale Station.

    But that’s obviously going to mean pushing out Saving Mr Banks and Philomena (neither of which I’ve seen, but I can understand the support). So this shows us how little wiggle room there’s going to be, gang.

  • James

    Despite my hatred for SLP, I hope Cooper knocks it out of the park in Hustle. I thought Spencer would definitely be in for Fruitvale Station. Not so sure anymore.

  • Ryan Adams

    Understandable. I had this page under construction for about 15 minutes trying to get everything lined up right. I’m sure they wanted to go live quickly, but their press release was in PDF form and not easily to transport.

  • Q Mark

    Does anyone else feel that ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ might be more of a stealth contender than we think? The Academy loves the Coens….three movies in a row nominated for BP, including one winner and one (A Serious Man) that flew even more under the radar. I feel confident in penciling ILD into one of the Best Picture slots as a guarantee at this point.

  • Josh

    Q Mark: Agreed. And I’ve been saying it for months. I am not saying it’s going to go on and ultimately win a bunch of big awards, but I do think it could be a spoiler. And I do think the Coens are gonna get nominated.

  • Uncle Jay

    I love being the person that says “I told you so”…

    Harrison Ford – 42 (Warner Bros.)

  • Rodrigo

    And so it begins …. how exciting!!

  • Ashwin Pinto

    Joaquin Phoenix being ignored for ‘Her’ Daniel Bruhl not getting in for ‘Rush’. and Will Forte not getting in for ‘Nebraska’ despite so many nominees is Wow!

  • Bryce Forestieri

    Yay for Jake Gyllenahaal; I’d nominate him in lead but whatever. He’s the only reason half of PRISONERS is very interesting. The whole Jackman affair is insufferable. Oh yeah, Deakins too. Probably his best work since JESSE JAMES, or…RANGO. I think even if GRAVITY’s script doesn’t show up with all these group it still has a solid chance of making it to the Oscars. But what do I know. Coens, Allen and whoever wrote NEBRASKA look like locks to me, then its Cuaron, Jonze, Russell, and whoever wrote BANKS fighting for the two remaining spots. These groups will tend to nominate smaller films? Other than that, these nominations seem very Oscary. Could Terence Winter’s work give “Such is the pity” and “Children, come and see what your father has purchased for me” a run for their money? We’ll see. Personally, I’m not excited about tomorrow, or the day after.

  • steve50

    Does anyone else feel that ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ might be more of a stealth contender than we think?

    Yes – and I’m hoping Oscar Isaac can unseat one of the current expected best actor leaders.

  • Kane

    For better or worse you can’t really say the Satellites just “cut and paste” from other award bodies. Do they pick contenders? Sure. But they also make some wacky choices that should frustrate some but then, hey, it’s the Satellites. At first I did a double take when I didn’t see Bryan Cranston in for Breaking Bad. But then I saw Freddie Highmore in for Bates Motel and I kind of chuckled it off because, hey, it’s the Satellites. They’re always fun to watch. Remember when Elle Fanning got nominated for Super 8? That stuff just makes me grin.

    Side note, I don’t get the Harrison Ford love for 42. He was good but Oscar worthy? He grumbled and growled the whole time. Nick Nolte could do it for Warrior because he’s a better growler and his role was much better, more shades of gray.

  • Bryce Forestieri

    I’m thinking Rodrigo Prieto has now a strong chance for a nomination. IF this enthusiasm doesn’t fizzle WOLF could end up with the 2nd most nominations? Even Sandy Powell or too recent? I’m liking her chances.

  • Vily

    Tim O’Neill has placed Wolf of Wall Street 2nd behind Gravity for Best Picture and Leonardo 2nd behind Robert Redford for his Oscar 2013 predictions. Interesting! ;-)))

  • Aaron C.

    I like these awards because they’re seemingly so random. No love for Mud is disappointing. If you want to see some really random picks, though, check out their TV awards. They gave some serious love to BBC America. John Goodman got in for Alpha House, an Amazon Prime show. They’re clearly embracing alternative formats on the TV front. Not the point of this site, but still pretty innovative when compared to the other award bodies.

  • Vily

    And the first review of Wolf of Wall Street is in. My excitement is through the roof now! :-))

    Roger Ebert’s old saying comes to mind: “It’s not what a film is about , but how it is about it.”

  • Richard

    Not very much surprises. Personally, I think the list would be more telling if the number of nominations per category were lowered to 5. I also hope The Wolf of Wall Street is good and this not just Scorcese bandwagon/hype.

  • Kim

    OT, sort of: How come DiCaprio has suddenly popped up in the Best Actor category, in the sidebar – for The Great Gatsby? I mean, after all these months…

  • Zach M.

    Just had to say, I’m through the roof about the noms for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Andre Braugher in the Comedy TV awards. So far, easily the best new comedy of the year, absolutely deserves them.

  • Pierre de Plume

    Nothing against the other screenplay nominations, but I feel Gravity deserves to be included. I guess it “doesn’t have enough words” to be taken seriously?

    If Fruitvale Station had been released later it might have fared better.

  • Renee

    Aaaand the throwing Before Midnight a bone in only the screenplay category officially starts now. 10 nomination slots and Julie Delpy still can’t land a nomination. Disgusting.

  • Jerry Grant

    That’s a strong Best Picture list, though I assume “Philomena” gets the boot for the final 10, and “Nebraska” gets in. Now, if we’re predicting 9, one still has to go. I am afraid my reason tells me that would be “All Is Lost” or “Blue Jasmine” :( . But I think that would be a tough fight. Current predictions:

    12 Years a Slave
    All Is Lost
    American Hustle
    Captain Phillips
    Inside Llewyn Davis
    Saving Mr. Banks
    The Wolf of Wall Street

    With “Blue Jasmine” waiting in the wings to replace…
    All Is Lost, American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Inside Llewyn Davis, or Nebraska.

  • Johnny Cage

    Best animation category is bizarre. No “Despicable Me 2”, but turds like “Turbo and “Epic” are noted.

  • Christophe

    So many noms, it’s all over the place, it’s really impossible to know which way the race is going. Sure it’s highly likely most oscar nominees are already present in that list, but there will surely be other contenders that are not included here

  • Alper

    Where is Daniel Brühl and Barkhad Abdi ?????

    somebody please tell me WHERE are they !! :)

  • Christophe

    The Annie Awards have also announced their noms today, it’s looking great for Ernest and Celestine, among the frontrunners with 7 noms including Best Picture.

  • Zach

    Mostly good noms, though I’m bummed Prisoners wasn’t cited for more, at least Jackman, when they included Whitaker. Otherwise, the fewer the nominations for The Butler, the better (except Oprah is worthy). Found Captain Phillips terribly overrated and difficult to watch (not for the reasons it should be), but Hanks deserves the nomination. Gravity was never going to get a screenplay nomination or even win Best Picture, so wake up, everyone. I haven’t seen Dallas Buyers Club yet, but I’m disappointed it’s not doing better critically as I thought it would. Their Supporting Actor nominees are the only relative shit-show in the major categories. Also interesting is no Gandolfini. If Cooper is nominated, we still need a fifth; Hill, Bruhl, and Abdi – are they strong enough? Gyllenhaal would surprise me for a number of reasons. So will Meryl being lead and Julia being supporting stick? I wonder if the costumes from Diana will be nominated, hehe. Also, my favorite category this year may be the still new HAIR AND Makeup. Slave, Hobbit, Butler, Hustle, August, Dallas Buyers, Rush, Diana??

  • Zach

    *as I thought it WOULD (in reference to my anticipation of Dallas Buyers)

    And eek, I had several spaces in my first comment that probably don’t show because I used my phone. Sorry if it looks rambling!

  • Bryce Forestieri

    OT: Just saw DALLAS BUYERS CLUB. Really well done, and even entertaining. Very interesting story (how much is accurate I have no idea). Committed, vigorous performance by Matthew McConaughey, includes several Academy Award nomination clips. Jared Leto does steal the show, in fact, he is pretty magnificent, [Spoiler Alert] especially the parts with humor (i.e., his gregarious self-intro) before his condition deteriorates further –later it becomes a standard ill person performance, but still he was good. A Supporting Actor nomination would be well deserved too. Not crazy about the film, but I’m glad I saw it. Jennifer Garner was kind of dull yet genuine, sweet, and real (but still dull) ★★★

    p.d. I’d rather McConaughey be recognized for MUD

  • matt

    Nice to see Before Midnight getting a screenplay nom.

    It’ll be interesting to see if Place Beyond the Pines can build steam leading up to the Oscars. There was an interesting HR piece about how many people are discovering it as an in-flight movie on plane rides after having missed it in theaters.

  • Ricky

    Well, I’ve been on this site for years and years and never gotten behind a film as a fanboy until now, so why stop until the actual nominations.

    I really expected Her to get major noms at the satellites. I actually think Johansson could have won here if nominated. I think they aren’t screening it nearly enough. Almost no one has seen it yet. To show up I’m screenplay and score is great, but in that lineup, we should really be seeing at least one, if not three acting nominations.

  • Sammy

    Inside Llewyn Davis is emerging as a major player day by day. Coens will probably get a Best Director nod again. This is also good news for Oscar Isaac.

  • Reno

    Just saw Dallas Buyers Club & 12 Years a Slave.

    For me, for now:
    Gravity for best picture
    Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity, for best director
    Robert Redford, All is Lost, for best actor
    ??? for best actress (not sold on Bullock, but she was really good)
    Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club, for best supporting actor
    Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years a Slave, for best supporting actress (though she hasn’t got an iota of a chance against Oprah)

  • Josh

    Sammy is right! :)

  • Patrick C

    I am happy to see Harrison Ford getting nominated for 42. He was the perfect Branch Rickey! I doubt it will carry on much further but I am hoping to see him get a nomination in the Best Supporting Actor category come Oscar and Globe time

  • zach

    Ryan, what happened to the last Oscar podcast?

  • Ryan Adams

    zach, We had some tech problems with the recording and then the holiday interfered with us getting together to re-record. We’re scheduled to hook up tomorrow and get the show back on the road.

  • superkk

    did they just copy all the names listed on this site? the only originality is harrison ford in 42….. im shocked despicable me 2 didnt make the 8 movie cut lolol.

  • Bryce Forestieri

    So you guys are re-doing 2000, which I bet y’all’re dreading, or going ahead with 2001?

  • Free

    Eyeballing it, I’d say this isn’t a bad list at all, though I don’t quite see how so many felt Philomena was Best Picture-worthy. Having just seen Dallas Buyers Club, I gotta say, I think it’s good enough to contend for the top prize (though nothing comes close to 12 Years a Slave for me, not even Gravity).

    I do hope Deakins gets in for Cinematography (even though Lubezki should win), and even though I was relatively indifferent towards Captain Phillips, I don’t understand how it misses out on Editing. I mean, what is a Paul Greengrass film if not a well-edited one?

  • Raphael

    So happy to see Amy Adams, DiCaprio & Scorsese on the list. But very sad to see Bullock in it too

  • Bob Burns

    These look like they consulted Awards Daily before voting.

  • Bailey

    I just realized how much fun it is going to be to read “David O. Russell- American Hustle” over these next few months.

  • The Great Dane

    This is a joke!!

    It has been confirmed that the Satellite Committee was not screened “Wolf of Wall Street”. It was nominated for a bunch of top prizes by people who hadn’t seen it. That renders EVERYTHING about these nominations invalid.
    Every year each awards body just gets closer and closer to wanting to just be Oscar predictors. Can’t stand it.
    David Poland announced after seeing “Phantom of the Opera” back then that he thought it could win Best Picture and that he thought it was the best musical in 50 years. Shortly after, when Broadcast Film Critics announced their nominees for Best Picture, Phantom was among the 6 nominated for Best Picture, although it didn’t even make their official list of their Top 20 Films of the Year. Just like when everyone nominated “Nine” for Best Picture because of sight-unseen hype. It’s a complete joke, these early nominations and let’s-guess-the-Oscars thing going on every year. Bring on the critics awards instead! NOW!

  • Tony

    The BP line-up looks a lot like the Oscars probably will be, although I’d like to see “Nebraska” bump “All Is Lost.” (Unfortunately, I think that if that happens, “All Is Lost” will bump “Philomena.”) Happy that “The Butler” got some love, but no BP love.
