SN: New “Avengers: Age of Ultron” trailer and how excited we are for Civil War
I really enjoyed the first trailer for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” despite being one of the rare people who didn’t really enjoy the first installment. The third trailer surpasses the first with tension, cliffhangers, and overall more serious tone.
They keep making them fight each other. They fought each other in the first one, now they’re still fighting each other. Soon they will really be fighting each other ever since it was declared that “Captain America 3” would have a foundation built by the “Civil War” comics.
I loved the “Civil War” comic series and I’ve never hated Tony Stark more than I did in that franchise. The base of the storyline is the Marvel Universe gets into a civil war after Tony Stark helps support a bill that would make all superheroes have to reveal their identities. Captain America is against this, sees it as dangerous, and thus we have our two civil war generals.
Here they are! Last year we started compiling our own award nominations based on user reviews and critic reviews. We have some excellent contenders for films, video games, and television shows.
In FILM “Birdman” leads the way with 10 nominations, “Inherent Vice” follows with 7 nominations, and “Boyhood” with 6.
In TELEVISION “Game of Thrones” leads with 12 nominations, “True Detective” with 9 nominations, while “Fargo” and “The Knick” tie with 8 nominations.
In VIDEO GAMES “Dragon Age: Inquisition” and “Child of Light” lead with 4 nominations.

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.
If you checked out our previous list, there were a lot of films still not considered. We’ve compiled everything to make this next list. It’s 2014 now and even though the 2013 award circuit hasn’t completed, it is about time that we start looking toward the future.

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…)
Awards: SAG Predictions
The Screen Actors Guild awards can be a little bit difficult to predict. They happen early in the year where it is hard to tell which December films SAG has seen and hasn’t seen. For example “Django Unchained” got nothing last year, because not one had seen it yet. Even though it had a very strong acting ensemble.
This year “The Wolf of Wall Street” has reportedly screened for the nominating committee, but what about the members? It is likely “The Wolf of Wall Street” won’t go anywhere here, but I’m going to take that road and say that it will get some attention (But I won’t completely fall for it here).
So here are my final locked-in predictions for SAG (with my runner-up choices):
Summary: A lonely writer develops an unlikely relationship with his newly-purchased operating system that’s designed to meet his every need.
Status: It wasn’t until the trailer was announced that anyone thought this film was going to even be done this year. Writer/Director Spike Jonze (who is notorious for spending long hours in an edit room) has made a film with a bizarre premise, the trailer looks like the film has a lot to say and it will now close the New York Film Festival with a push from executives who are confident in the quality of the film and its award chances.
