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…)

Awards: Final Golden Globe Predictions

One of the most widely acknowledged awards shows will announce its nominees 5:15am PT/8:15am ET. After what we have seen with the Screen Actors Guild nominees you should be expecting attention from “The Butler,” “Enough Said,” and “August: Osage County.” Among the usual front-runners.

After tomorrow the Golden Globes Page will only predict winners of the categories and we’ll see how we did.

So here are the Final Golden Globe Predictions: (more…)

Oscar: The 9 films that could win “Best Picture”

Oscar: The 9 films that could win “Best Picture”

This list won’t just be the top 9 films on the Best Picture prediction page. It also won’t be the 9 I think will make it with nominations (though very possible). Many other films not on the list could be nominated, but won’t compete for the win, the same way “The Blind Side” or “District 9” didn’t compete in 2010 and how “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” didn’t compete in 2011.

At this point in the race we have seen all but four of the major contenders. We, as a film-going audience, haven’t seen them, but critics have, and we have been given a general consensus on the film.

So here are the top 9, possible Oscar Winners. I can guarantee one of these nine films will be our Oscar Best Picture winner.

Festival Circuit: Early Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic Scores

Festival Circuit: Early Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic Scores

The majority of film critics will view these films closer to their official release dates. However, a few film critics have seen them now at the various film festivals. These scores will obviously change over time, but they can also be a good idea for where the film is headed critically.

Remember, Metacritic assigns a specific numerical score out of 100 for a film based on the film critics reaction, and Rotten Tomatoes creates a percentage based on critics who simply liked it (fresh) or didn’t like it (rotten).
