Wonder if Universal will give The Wolfman a theatrical re-release billed as "Academy Award Nominee The Wolfman".

Yeah, poor word choice given the discussion. Personal favorite, as with all my "picks." Not a fan of Oscar prognosticating myself.

I just don't get it. I really feel like he carried that entire movie, to the point where I'd've given him lead actor over Eisenberg. Jesse doesn't DO anything in the movie, he just sits there and looks sulky. I love him to death, but the reason he works in movies is because he's the straight man that everyone plays off of. He doesn't do much of anything.

I think Eisenberg's nom was deserved, but if I were to only nominate 1 actor from the movie it'd be Garfield, and yeah he's the heart of the movie.

A major work from arguably the most essential filmmaker to emerge in the past 10 years. Otherwise, right on.

I'm mostly just so dumbfounded that I'm giving Eisenberg a bit of undeserved shit, but I just don't think of him as a great actor, much as I enjoy pretty much every film I've ever seen him in. (all three of them)

It wasn't eligible this year, from what I remember reading.

I would rather read the Lotus Sutra or the Dhammapada then another somnambulating movie like that again. At least I'll learn something about this life.

Boonmee is more about the cinema than it is the afterlife.

I'm not a fan of the film either.
But to say it's pretentious is a hell of a mistake, sorry. Also, don't think it's boring.

Now to download those mothafuckas I haven't seen.

Tonight a doubt befalls over me: more Haneke or Dogtooth?

I know it's already been mentioned, but just looking at the original song category again and I'm just mystified. Was original music really that painfully bad this year? Country Strong got anything nominated? What the hell.

and besides each country has a jury or something that selects one film as their official entry. And there have been complications, concerning more than one country involved in the production.

So the award is not the really The Best Non-English language film. But, rather the best of this narrow selection offering.
