NEBRASKA

nebraska-will-forte-bruce-dern1

The SAG ballots are being sent in the mail today. Press release after the cut.

The nominating committee is a much smaller group than the 100,000 who vote for the SAGs. Around 2,200 SAG members are chosen to do the nominating, otherwise studios would have the insurmountable burden of sending out screeners to the entire membership (which many of them do after nominations).

Best Actor is going to be the hardest category, probably, with the strongest contenders being:

Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years a Slave
Robert Redford, All Is Lost
Bruce Dern, Nebraska
Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club
Forest Whitaker, The Butler
Tom Hanks, Captain Phillips
Oscar Isaac, Inside Llewyn Davis
Christian Bale, Out of the Furnace
Michael B. Jordan, Fruitvale Station
Jake Gyllenhaal, Prisoners

Will likely include:
Leonardo DiCaprio, Wolf of Wall Street
Christian Bale, American Hustle

For Your Consideration: Bruce Dern for Nebraska. Dern has been working as an actor since the 1960s, starting first at the Actors Studio in New York, then working in television, then film. He has been nominated for just one Oscar -= Supporting for Coming Home. His recent work alone would qualify him as one of the greatest living actors — Big Love, Django Unchained and finally, the performance of his career, Nebraska. But looking back on the films he’s made, working with Roger Corman, Alfred Hitchcock, Sidney Pollack, Claude Chabrol, Douglas Trumbull and many others. The grossly unrecognized Dern has gone mostly unnoticed this Oscar season because critics and bloggers have not heralded Nebraska yet for what it is: not only the best film of Alexander Payne’s career, but the crowning achievement of one of America’s treasures in Dern. His is a performance that needs advocacy to make the cut. For your consideration, SAG nominating committee.

Whenever I see that beautiful afro on Viola Davis I am reminded of her subtle rebellion against the need to blend in to appeal to industry voters who really only see one kind of woman.  She did it at the Oscars and she’s done it again last night. Also, Daniel Day-Lewis.  His performance, along with Kushner’s script and Spielberg’s subtle direction, are the essential forces that build Lincoln’s foundation:

After the cut, video of Daniel Day-Lewis from the Santa Barbara film festival.
