Awards Season 2009/2010/2011

Postby Fried Gold on Wed Oct 14, 2009 9:33 pm

There's already talk about what will be the "big Oscar movies" coming in the next couple of months and that certain films are being shuffled around in the schedules to bring them into (or out of) contention.

...so I figured a new awards season thread was ready to kick off.

In particular, I was just reading HitFix's early rundown of contenders for Best Picture in the next Oscars/Baftas/Globes - http://www.hitfix.com/galleries/2009-9-30-2010-best-picture-contenders

An interesting(?) point to consider this time, with regard to the Oscars, is that the number of nominees in the category has been bumped up from five to ten....which many pundits are predicting will be include movies which would usually be pushed out or passed over. So along with the usual predictable Oscar stuff, you could potentially see things like Up (animated), Star Trek (scifi), District 9 (a bit foreign) and The Smurfs Movie (tech fest) thrown into the mix (and other genre things).

I still don't see this happen. I said it before and I will say it again: The other five movies will be "typical" Best Picture Contenders too.

If you take the last Oscars as an example, under this new system a film like The Dark Knight would've got a nomination for Best Picture.

And it's that sort of thing that might make more people watch the ceremony (which is what they want).

I'd laugh my head off if The Dark Knight still didn't get in. Partly because what DerLanghaarige wrote I think to be true.

What an underwhelming list. No standout, The Hurt Locker The Hurt Locker The HURT Locker, No The Road, NINE NINE NINE NINE!!! Oh YES YES YES YES YES it looks like a typcial boring piece of shit ala Chicago to be award lapped up! It's got Nicole Kidman in it whattayou expect?!

It's all just a bit of this movie, a bit of that movie, nothing particular to get one excited about. No The Road!

I was more disappointed by the actors chosen (espically in the actress catagories)

Meryl Streep twice in the same catagory?

Julia Roberts in DUPLCITY?!?

Sandra Bolluck for THE PROPOSAL!?

was our actress catagories that weak

to be fair Matt Damon got nominated twice too

are we just nominating names now instead of looking for the good performances?

The Proposal was one of the worst movies of the year, and I definitely saw a few stinkers unfortunately...

Happy enough with the Inglourious Basterds noms, but the Oscar season movies still haven't all come out... still the line up for what's to come doesn't look too impressive. While there were a few films I really really liked this year, overall I'd say it was a tad on the weak side.

Damon was a bit funny with his performance in The Informant.

While he didn't appear to be doing anything that showy or anything that screamed "I'M ACTIIINGGG!!!!", there was something very under the surface or creepy going on there. Yeah I did like him in it a lot. Oddly I'm not TOO surprised he got nommed.

I am a bit bummed that nobody remembered Brothers Bloom. I loved that film.

But I will be happy with Hurt Locker winning. My brother hated Up In the Air. So, if I have to root for a film, it will be Hurt Locker.

I haven't seen The Hurt Locker, Brothers Bloom or Up in the Air (which hasn't opened here yet).

Somehow The Hurt Locker never seemed that interesting to me, I mean: Not Another Iraq War Movie

Uh oh, I hope the Wayans's don't visit The Zone...

I don't quite get the love for Hurt Locker. Certainly not award worthy.

It started off okay, but well tailed off into a substandard melodramatic version of Generation Kill.

The action scenes are really good. Especially the first one. Definitely not award worthy, though.

I think that's it. The first scene is such an immense thing that the rest doesn't quite reach it.

A lot of us shared his sentiments when we saw it, too.

Great film, but to be up here for those awards? Get outta here.

A bit irrelevant until I've seen it, but do people who saw The Road think that this should be up here? This was our movie we spoke of regarding Oscar talk.

Postby Ribbons on Tue Dec 15, 2009 10:32 pm

By now everyone knows that the major year-end awards are something of a sham. Still, here's a couple of questions, from me to the HFPA:

1) Do the studios have to make their own films eligible for certain categories like they do with the Oscars?
2) If not, could it have killed them to nominate District 9 or something for Best Drama and give Up in the Air one of the Best Comedy spots currently being taken up by Julie & Julia or "It's Complicated"?
3) Seriously, It's Complicated?
4) I mean, don't get me wrong, you have impeccable taste and all... it's just, Jason Reitman himself (only the writer/director of Up in the Air, someone who might be in a position to know) calls it a comedy, so why isn't anybody else involved with this process? Is it not prestigious enough unless it wins Best Drama or something? It's the prestige thing, isn't it?
5) Oh, and is it ever awkward for Meryl Streep to know that she can sleepwalk through a shitty Nancy Meyers/Norah Ephron romcom and it'll automatically win awards because she was in it?

It wasn't soooo bad. But I'd hardly put it in a category for comedy. Maybe whimsy.

Up in the Air isn't a comedy.
Having Danny McBride in your film does not a comedy make.

I do hope it wins some awards though, Jason Reitman really should be encouraged to make more films like this.

Postby TheBaxter on Wed Dec 16, 2009 12:24 am

i don't know if this has anything to do with anything, but i think that instead of always nominating 5 movies, and 5 actors, and 5 actresses, etc etc they should change the # of nominees based on the quality of films that year. if there's only 3 good films worth nominating, then just nominate those 3. and if there's 7 or 8 good ones, nominate all of them. then there's be fewer snubs, and also fewer crap films that get noms they don't deserve. i know the oscars are expanding to 10 films, which means they'll almost always have to nominate some undeserving films to fill out the roster. why not just nominate a different number so only quality films get in? they could do it like a Hall of Fame vote, where in order to get a nomination, you need to get a certain number of votes to get a nomination, but they don't limit the number of people who can get into the HoF in any given year, or set a minimum either.

Newsflash: Lost sucks!!! :D

The only thing I learned from that list was that Monk is still on the air... John Lithgow should've got his own nom, he single-handedly held Dexter together this year.

I am really impressed that they gave UP best picture and Best Director. Of course, I am also surprised that Detroits unemployment rate is nearly 50%, but apparently these critics have jobs so...

Best Supporting Actress
Penelope Cruz, Nine
Vera Farmiga, Up in the Air
Anna Kendrick, Up in the Air
Mo'nique, Precious
Julianne Moore, A Single Man


Anna Kendrick is amazing in this film. One would never guess that she had these kind of acting chops from the Twilight movies. A very deserving nomination. I also think George Clooney is absolutely magnetic in his role of Ryan Bingham - a powerful performance.

I haven't seen New Moon yet, but she was quite good in Twilight. I mean, she wasn't given much to work with, but she comes off entirely natural in that. When I walked out of the theatre I remember commenting to my brother that she appeared to have some actual talent. It was quite obvious she was the only member of that cast that didn't feel wooden or overly melodramatic.

Golden Globes on now. I forgot they do TV awards with this thing which seems weird, as you switch from Scorcese talking about DeMille with cutaways to Bobby Diniro and then to the cast of Glee talking about some rubs and cutaways to some actor we don't know.

(Note that this is all made worse by Sky Movies holding up Alex Zane as a serious film critic and someone from Heat magazine)

So far:

Christopher Wantz won.
Jason Reitman got screenplay.
Up got Best Animated.
Haneke got Best Foreign Thing award.
James Cameron won Best Director for Avatar (and Best Silver Haired Old Woman Lookalike) (and did a mininature Kanye moment in his speech about James Horner's score)

Best Moment so far - Ricky Gervais' introduction to Mel Gibson.

Also it seems Jeremy Renner wasn't acting in Hurt Locker. He appears to be a twunt in real-life.

If you want to watch it live, you can Get frOm yOur friend Greg, in LakE VIDEO, Illinois. (Don't look it up, they don't like to draw attention to themselves in Lake Video.)

Also

ARHNULD says "Avatar" like "ARGH-VHIT-TAH"

Mickey Rourke - "The Gloden Globe gloes glo - Sandra Bullock??"

Robert Downy won for Sherlock Holmes. For some reason. But his speech was triffs.

I have not seen The Blind Side. Is Sandra Bullock really that phenomenal in this? I've never been overly impressed with any of her work. I don't dislike her acting ability, I've just never been WOWed by any of her performances. I guess there is always a first....?

Maui, I have seen the Blind Side and REALLY enjoyed it. But a lot of that comes from a strong emotional connection to the story (my family has been doing Foster Care since 2001) and being a sucker for a good sports movie.

I thought she was good, award nominated good, maybe...award winning good, probably not. But she is really good

personally though I was more taken with the kid that played Micheal Oher and with Tim McGraw's performances then Bullock's. It's a point of contention about that movie between me and actor friends of mine.

Bullock gets to be loud, and brash, and southernery whereas the other actors play things more subtly. And it seems that the "louder" more unexpected performances get more attention the the more subtle, consistent work

In other words her entire performance is summarized nicely by the trailer: Oscar bait. :wink:

I thought her portrayal was an absolute butchering of the southern accent she was trying. Isn't she from Texas? Just speak normally, dammit, not like you have a damn horse cock rammed down your throat.

But my wife saw the real woman she portrayed on Oprah or something, and said the performance imitated the real woman pretty well.

But I'll be honest, the first time I saw one of the "Oscar worthy" promotional spots for the film, I just laughed it off, but I guess there really was something to it. I think it just says more about the weakness of roles for women this year (or any year really), than about her performance. I agree with whoever just said it, I thought McGraw was better than her. He seemed more like a real person to me.

yeah it seems anymore that imitation or the bigger or louder the performance the more it's recognized

I also think it was a weak year for women performances

Meryl getting nominated twice in the same catagory

Bullock twice in different catagories

kind of sums all of it up

Would Hollywood go so low as to award Sandra Bullock with an Oscar?

That'd be like Halle Berry, Gwnyth Paltrow or someone else awful getting it.
