Hypothetical Casting: Y – The Last Man

Guerra-Pia-Y-the-Last-ManHypothetical Casting: Y – The Last Man

One of the most beloved comic series of the new millennium, “Y: The Last Man” was slated to be adapted a couple years ago. Unfortunately the last real news report about the project came in January when we learned that New Line Cinema was on the verge of losing the rights to the project unless they were to start production soon.

Originally “Distrubia” director D.J Caruso was slated to direct the project. Comic creator Brian K. Vaughn had written a screenplay that condensed the whole series into one film. Caruso wanted to fight to make it a trilogy given the comic series long length. Honestly, I trust Vaughn, but this series needs more than just one film. (more…)

Oscar: “Gravity” vs. “12 Years a Slave”

cuaron-affleck-dga_2802578bOscar: “Gravity” vs. “12 Years a Slave”

Last night Alfonso Cuaron picked up one of the biggest precursor awards for his space epic. It wasn’t a complete surprise when Cuaron’s name was announced; he previously received a Golden Globe for “Gravity” as well. If we have learned anything from this win it is that “12 Years a Slave’s” front-runner status is in danger.

“12 Years a Slave” was the early favorite. People loved “Gravity” when it landed in theaters, but people still said “12 Years a Slave” was the film to beat. When December came around and critic’s awards were being announced you often heard one of the two films being named best picture of 2013 with “Her” and “American Hustle” thrown in intermittently.

Oscar: Snubs that could happen

Golden-Globes-Nominations-Oscar-IsaacOscar: Snubs that could happen

There will undoubtedly be some major snubs when the Oscar nominations are announced January 16th. Major front-runners have often been pushed aside. Some say this is because voters won’t pick the obvious choice so they can help an underdog get in.

Unfortunately this helps to eliminate a lot of major front-runners. (Which is said to have happened last year to Ben Affleck for “Argo.”)

So really though, no one is completely safe. So here are list of some obvious choices that could get the booth on the morning of the 16th.

Golden Globes: Final Predictions

“American Hustle” will win big tonight. At least that’s what we’re predicting. It’s been a long time since the Golden Globes have had so many categories that could go either direction. “Gravity” vs. “12 Years a Slave” will be the biggest rivalry of the night.

Both Television and Film Nomination Predictions are listed below.

So here are our predictions and odds for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards:

Awards: Golden Globe Nominations – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Niki-Lauda-RushAwards: Golden Globe Nominations – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Many would have strong arguments that state that Golden Globes matter very little to the Oscar race. I think, in some cases, they matter a lot. Even since their slates started showing up more clean (No More “The Tourist” incidents) the H.F.P.A. has been given us some solid selections in each category.

This year there were a couple notable things that occurred. A couple notable films/shows that were left out of contention, and a couple of reasonable twists, and some unreasonable. So let’s take a look at these nominations and see what was good, what was bad, and what was just ugly. (more…)
