    Wow can we just stop with the James Franco love for that horrendous film? The performance itself is not bad but is definitely not awards worthy.

  2. December 13, 2013

    I think James Franco’s performance in Spring Breakers certainly is bad.

    Always a pleasure, Sasha!

    That’s more like it! ;-)))

    Will try to see American Hustle tomorrow. God help me! ;-)

    Spring Breakers is one of the best movies of the year.

  5. December 13, 2013

    So SF joins Phoenix in recognizing Gravity’s screenplay. Still on the outside looking in w.r.t. a very crowded original screenplay field, but the notices certainly don’t hurt it (even if they are from “second-tier” critics organizations).

    Mick LaSalle loves French movies, and he REALLY REALLY loved “Blue Is….”

    More brie Larson love!!!!!

    Spring Breakers is easily the worst movie I saw this year, with the Bling Bling Ring coming in a close second.

    Emma Thompson seems to be mentioned less and less. Also Julia Roberts missing from a couple of the recent lists too.

    No Oprah either. Again.

    I personally like James Franco a lot, but Spring Breakers is awful. I still don’t understand the hype and why some critics has it in high level.

    Every time Oprah misses a nomination, and angel gets it’s wings. Thrilled for Brie, Spencer, and especially (in spite of the dislike here) Franco. I’m with Corvo on this one. It’s a great movie. And I’ve despised everything else Korine has done to date.

    Can Brie Larson edge out Emma Thompson?

  13. Zooey

    Could Emma be the one missing an Oscar nomination?

    Meryl and Judi have Harvey working for them and he knows he doesn’t have much powerhouse films this year and he would go for what he has. But Emma seems to be on a sinking ship.

    The film was expected to do well with the HFPA and SAG and it got nods for Emma only. If Adele breaks through, it could be Emma losing momentum.

  14. December 14, 2013

    I don’t think Emma Thompson’s going to miss an Oscar nomination. Forget about these critic groups and look at what SAG and HFPA have both said – they’ve included her, and I think AMPAS will too. Plus, Saving Mr. Banks has (predictably) not gained much traction with the critics. Industry voters will probably like it a great deal more.

    I think if there’s anyone who could break through that crowded five Oscar nominees, it’s Amy Adams… Who will miss among our current top 5? Your guess is as good as mine.

  16. Tony

    I think my most recent comment (a few hours ago) got eaten up.

    I saw “Saving Mr. Banks” on Friday. I don’t know if Emma Thompson’s role was “bait-y” enough for the Oscars.

    Jim, Corvo

    Here’s another champion of SPRING BREAKERS and Franco’s performance. One of the essential works by an actor in 2013. True auteurism from the performer.

    So now some folks have decided to jump on the “Emma’s not make it” bandwagon? Just days ago, people here were claiming that Judi Dench was the one who’d be left out of the Oscar lineup. But now it’s Emma? Give me a break!

  19. BedBath&Beyonce

    I get that Spring Breakers is not everyone’s cup of tea. But it was one of the most interesting films of 2013. I expected camp and over-the-topness and I got but with the movie taking itself a tad more seriously than I originally thought. It walked a really fine tonal line and, for me, it worked. James Franco had a lot to do with that. I’m not expecting him to be nominated at the Oscars but I’m glad he hasnt been completely overlooked.
