Best Actress
Rachel Weisz (The Deep Blue Sea)

that was a real surprise, I thought this came out last year. I do remember seeing it in a theater, it played about one week. Checking IMDB it was in the spring, it never got a wide release.
Well, I will say she is that good in it, it is a very 'art house' film.
I did like it a lot and would recommend it for anyone that likes movies that rely on actors and characters more than a need for the action scenes. The sets are good and so is the casting. I will be surprised if she gets anymore nominations. The film will not appeal to a wide audience.

Do you have a second run theater that you're fond of, by the way? There was a decent one near where I live but it closed down.....I'm sure if you have one it's up near you but still......
Regency in Pasadena. It's a block away from the Laemmles. Not a good theatre but a cheap on. $2 before 6pm and $3 after. They get a decent mix of stuff.

Regency also has a NoHo location. The chain has a website.

BAFTA shouldn't be hard to get for a British actress, and since the Globes split into drama and comedy/musical, if the studio tries to push her it's not inconceivable.

Being a previous Oscar-winner doesn't hurt, either.

Thanks. I've been to a Regency theater in Westwood but it's not a 2nd run theater.

I think Lincoln is one of the most beautifully "cinematic" films of The Beard's career. His collaboration with Kaminski alone here reached heights I didn't ever expect from them. He light and shadow alone works as strongly as the script or actors both of which are really strong, the typical Spielberg pitfalls here and there notwithstanding. But this was one of the best-looking pieces of celluloid (aided ironically by an especially strong digital projection) I've seen in years. But that's not to discount it's strong film language either: smart cutting for the most part, great framing, shot lengths, subtle camera moves, etc. likely to remain in my top 5 of the year I'd wager.

And no one ever does that with Steven Spielberg.

I have nothing to add to this discussion. All I've seen is the well-made Argo.

But I will.

I thought The Master was pretentious and boring, honestly by the end I was glad it was over. Great acting, that was about it for me. I loved Lincoln and thought it was very moving. Typical Spielberg but who cares, I fall for it and I'm not ashamed.

I think Ben Affleck definitely deserves a bunch of best director noms for Argo-so well done. Can't wait to see Zero Dark Thirty.

At least Holy Motors finally won something.

Happy for PTA, Joaquin, Amy.

Argo for screenplay is ludicrous.

Really glad Beasts won nothing major.

yeah Beasts, the kid is cute, but please do not encourage any more bad film making.

Deakins gets an award for a film that is not worth a re-watch.


and a lesser PTA is still better than most anything else.

I'd actually watch Skyfall again even if it was just to look at Deakins' photography again.

Having said that, I do think The Master should have won cinematography.
