Down to the Wire – One Last Look at Split Guilds, Split Oscars

Read More

The Gurus of Gold and Gold Derby have put out their predictions. No one is predicting American Hustle to win in Best Picture, which is really the only logical split vote scenario, being that the SAG ensemble win would be in play, as it’s been every time since the beginning of SAG. They are divided between Gravity and 12 Years a Slave. More surprising, to me, is how many pundits are…

A world where any award is possible. My comfy bubble is left unlocked but there’s a Do Not Disturb sign. Now though, the dreaming is over. Time to face the annual rude awakening. Tomorrow at 5:30am, the door slams…

My candle burns at both ends, It will not last the night– ah, my foes, and oh, my friends, It gives a lovely light. The Oscar year began all the way back in Cannes where three films were introduced – Inside Llewyn Davis, All is Lost and Nebraska.  For a time it seemed as though those three films would continue to dominate through the festival season and through the critics…

The Prediction Game, and They’re Off

Read More

Gold Derby has assembled a ragtag group for the first predictions sweep (Movie City News’ Gurus of Gold will also post soon) of Best Picture. These are mostly spit in the wind choices, though I follow Anne Thompson’s lead by never predicting a film to win that I haven’t seen (it’s tempting, hope springs eternal).  Therefore, I currently think, all things considered, that Alexander Payne’s sentimental, moving story of an…

I thought it might be worth combing through the Oscars category by category. What is most likely to win, what might win and what the dark horse could be.  I come at this three ways. First, what the general consensus is based on previous wins, Second, what the shifting buzz seems to be indicating, and third what the potential upset might be. This weekend, is the WGA, the Eddie, the…
