    Bring it on!

    The Oscars are my drug. I follow this shit like a damn drug addict!

    So many exciting possibilities this year... I'm thinking we will get a surprise nomination for Best Picture and it will be either Cloud Atlas or The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

        Fuck yeah!! LOL!! I am hoping for The Hobbit. If it doesnt make it in that category, then I see it netting 5-7 technical categories.

          Although I like the Oscars. Their opinion is generally extremely snobbish. I watch bits of it, but it really is film snobbery at it's finest if you ask me.

            Me as well. I am a sucker for this shit. I just love the hypocritical and snobbish character and the behaviour of the protagonists, the Award Ceremony and the host, who hopefully will bring da ruckus this time. It is just fun to watch at, but don't you dare to make the mistake to take all that too damn serious.

            I really don't know who will be the favorites this year. Iit might be Lincoln, because of the deep rooting in american history plus the fantastic performance by Daniel Day-Lewis.
            I will cheer for The Hobbit, of course. I hope it will win at least Best Score.

                Dude, the trick is not to mind. Just watch it and enjoy their often facepalming behaviour.
                The meaning of the Awards itself...well, since such schmaltz like The King's Speech can earn Best Picture and Best Screenplay, it isn't really a thing I can take any longer serious.

                  I think Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty are going to be the favorites this year. Day Lewis' performance and the subject matter are big reasons. And, Zero Dark Thirty is another one with big history subject matter (no matter how it really happened) and an outstanding lead performance and I think Bigelow's direction easily beats out Spielberg's. But, this is also just my guess because they've been getting a lot of the talk as of late.

                  I did love them both, but I'd like to see something unpredictable happen.

                  What I'd really like to see is Django, Skyfall, Argo or End of Watch be up there. But, End of Watch definitely won't and the first two aren't the Academy's type. Argo could have a chance though.

                    Sorry if this statement offends anyone, but fuck the Academy. The last time I found them to be correct was when Christoph Waltz won best supporting actor in Inglorious Basterds, I find them extremely inaccurate and would love to know what dumbshit decided Jonah Hill should have got a nomination. I think pretty much all award shows are bullshit.

                      Yeah, it's all bullshit, we all know that. But, it's been like that for years and it's not going to change, so I accept it and hope for the nom's that I think actually should win. And, I also think there have been plenty of awards given to those who do indeed deserve them. Usually the biggest piece of bullshit is the Best Picture winner, but a lot of the performance nominees are well deserved, not all, but a lot of them. Natalie Portman in Black Swan was one of the most deserved wins in recent years and I'm with you on Christoph too.

                        She fucking rocked the shit out of that role. I don't think she has ever played a role like that. She went through a complete transformation for the movie and then the last few scenes her character changed so drasticly.

                          Its impossible to say if they get the awards 100 percent right every year because their criteria simply differs from others'. Especially people like us who love violent and offensive horror films.

                          Having said that, I find a lot of the films that they at least nominate end up in my top 10 of each year. The main problem with the Academy is that they're totally unwilling to appreciate genre films or pick films and/or performances to win the awards that aren't "safe".

                          The King's Speech is the perfect example. Is it a good movie? Absolutely. Its brilliantly acted and filmed with an interesting historical plot. Trouble is, if you've seen one movie about British monarchy you've seen them all. It does nothing outside of being an excellent movie. No harm in that, only i wish they would have picked something much more contemporary feeling and boundary pushing, such as Inception and Black Swan (which at least were nominated).

                          This year I bet either Argo or Lincoln will dominate. Once again, there is nothing wrong with those films. They're expertly crafted, both very exciting and jam packed with commendable film elements. Do they push any boundaries or stand as a new standard in anything? Hell no.

                          Something like Cloud Atlas or the Master is what they SHOULD be awarding in my opinion. Films that feel truly unique. Films that have done things that no film has done before in new and exciting ways.

                          All of that aside, its a blast to watch the Oscars. I don't see anything wrong with filmmakers patting themselves on the back every now and again. Just because the films we want to win don't win doesn't mean those films fall off of the face of the Earth. I'll always be an avid Oscars fan. Its the equivalent of people getting really into professional sports or political races. I dig it.

                            i have a love/hate relationship with the oscars. the part of me that values the heyday of the forties, and big stars like cary grant, bogey, lauren bacall, billy wilder, and so on loves them. they're like a throwback to the early days of hollywood royalty. the part of me that hates them is the horror loving outlier that can't stand the interests of the rich, white, and boring. so i watch the oscars, alternately applauding interesting choices and homages and restrospective moments, and then cursing their failure to acknowledge horror and science fiction appropriately. nothing pisses me off more when only three movies get a make-up nom, and then the winner is some bullshit aging make-up (i mean, unless rick baker is nominated). so i'm schizo about them. i watch them every year, rattling my saber about their narrow mindedness, and then trumpeting my horn if something even obliquely horror is recognized (the brilliant martin landeau as bela in ed wood, for example).

                            like i said, love em/hate em.

                              Yup. They have a shocking inability to honor genre films. They had a cool tribute to horror films a few years ago though.

                              Having said that, vey few horror and science fiction movies actually deserve to be honored. And as much as I love stuff like Troma movies and other niche films and distributors, I can see why Father's Day or Poultrygeist wouldn't be honored despite them being incredible films. Most people in the world just simply do not understand that kind of thing. There are certainly some films that deserve recognition, but the Academy has a hard time with genre pictures.

                              I was surprised Inception received so much Oscar love.
