Movie of the year: should be 12 Years a Slave. It was a fantastic film and it has the slavery/oppression aspect that the Oscar judges adore.

Leonardo Dicaprio should take home his first Oscar this year. Chiwetel Ejiofor, and the rest of the nominees were excellent, but Dicaprio gave one hell of a performance in Wolf. Given his long career and lack of awards I would be surprised if the Academy did not give him an Oscar this year.

Best actress is a difficult one to call. None of these performances really stood out to me this year. Although I believe that Cate Blanchett will take the honor this year.

Supporting Actor: Barkhad Abdi should take home the Oscar no problem. He gave a fantastic performance in Captain Phillips. It certainly stood out more than the other actors in this category.

Best supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence was fantastic in American Hustle, but because she was last years winner I doubt she will be given the Oscar again so soon. Instead I think the Academy will honor Lupita Nyong'o.

Best Director: Alfonso Cuaron is well loved in Hollywood and I would be very surprised if he did not take home Best Director.

Best Original Screenplay: Her

Best Adapted Screenplay: 12 Years a Slave

Best Animated Film: Frozen

Cinematography: Gravity

Editing: Gravity

Visual Effects: Gravity

Costume Design: How could The Great Gatsby not win this nomination.

Makeup: Dallas Buyers Club

Production Design: This is a toss up. But I could see Gatsby Winning it because of the Elaborate sets.

Best Original Score: Gravity

Best Original Song: Let it Go. Ordinary Love could win but not because it is a better song, but because of Bono and U2's star power.

Totals: Gravity: 5, 12 Years a Slave: 3, Gatsby: 2, Frozen: 2, Captain Phillips: 1, Her: 1, Wolf of Wallstreet: 1, Blue Jasmine: 1, Dallas Buyers Club: 1.

‘12 Years A Slave’ Telling Voters “It’s Time” – But How Will It Resonate?

From the article:

"So is it resonating with voters? Are they paying attention? And how do you interpret the message, clearly aimed at Academy voters, that the studio is trying to send for its Best Picture nominee?

It’s Time for a serious film about slavery to win Best Picture?

It’s Time for any film about the black experience to win Best Picture?

It’s Time for a film with a largely black cast, theme, black director and screenwriter to win?

It’s Time those Academy members who have resisted seeing it, because they think it’s too brutal, stick their screener in their DVD player and watch".

So today I watched 12 Years a Slave. Saw that the Blu ray would be out 2 days after the Oscars and decided to pony up the money and see it. Some thoughts:

Good movie. A powerful story, but a not a special film. Not a dry eye on the theater (about 10 people were there) including a lady in front of me which was clearly affected by the movie. Chiwetel Ejiofor was good but Michael Fassbender shined. For all the hoopla about Lupita Nyong'o the performance was fine but not spectacular.

It was funny because regardless of how well educated the slave the actor were supposedly portraying, by the way they were speaking (I know there are linguistic differences between current English and Antebellum English being to closer to the colonial era) I thought they would start reciting Shakespeare at any moment. And Brad Pitt, he just couldn't resist playing a part in a movie he produced regardless of whether he was the right actor for the part. Just Brad Pitt with a beard.

12 Years a Slave: 7/10

I really am not sure about my Best Pic/Best Screenplay picks. It's the first time in years where I've felt that it could go to more than two films (Hustle, Gravity, Slave.) I really hope they don't pull another moronic move by splitting down the Director/Picture category with different films.

Oh, and if Jennifer Lawrence does indeed win, there will be a backlash bigger than anything from the Academy in the past decade.

This are all the 2013 movies I have seen regardless of whether they were nominated for an Oscar.

  • Gravity: 8/10, score was good, at first the movie was subtle with how it presented its theme, by the end it was screaming it at you, didn't like that.
  • 12 Years a Slave: 7/10, it didn't met the hype.
  • All is Lost: 7/10, really good, takes your breath away.
  • Blue is the Warmest Color: 7/10, Adèle Exarchopoulos is just too hot for words.
  • Blue Jasmine: 7/10, Cate Blanchett shines. Another quality film by Woody.
  • Captain Phillips: 7/10, another film with at least a sequence heavily influenced by TDK.
  • Dallas Buyers Club: 7/10, first movie that I have seen during the so called McConaissance that meets the hype. The Wolf of Wall Street doesn't count since his part was so small.
  • Filth: 7/10, aka Bad Lieutenant 3
  • Jagten (The Hunt): 7/10
  • Nebraska: 7/10
  • Short Term 12: 7/10
  • The Counselor: 7/10, A roller-coaster of expectations. When I first saw the cast I was hooked on, and then came the reviews and my expectations were shattered. Then it turned out it wasn't so bad. Fassbender shines again.
  • The Spectacular Now: 7/10
  • The Wolf of Wall Street: 7/10, you know what is funny? This was the first movie of the Oscar season that I saw way back in December and I went to it like: "well, this is gonna be a hell of a ride which will garner some Oscar nominations but not much else". But with the passage of time, my perception of it has only grew more appreciative when compared to what came after. One of the best film of the year.
  • American Hustle: 6/10, probably the worst 10 Oscar nominee in a long time.
  • Don Jon: 6/10
  • Fruitvale Station: 6/10
  • Her: 6/10, disappointing.
  • Man of Steel: 6/10
  • Prisoners: 6/10, I guess one of its problem was making me feel too smart, you could put the pieces together a mile away, by mistake or by design I didn't like that. Also, what an awful way to end it, too cute by half.
  • Rush: 6/10, just another Ron Howard sappy film.
  • World War Z: 6/10
  • The Great Gatsby: 5/10, It gets better as it moves on from the music and over shinning, blinding glare from the exuberance. Baz Luhrmann isn't for everybody, and he isn't for me. Hip Hop in the 1920's? I don't give a **** what are you trying to do, just don't do it. Oh you did it? Here, take a 5.
  • The Conjuring: 1/10, how this piece of junk has a 7.6 rating on IMDB is ridiculous.

My ballot. I stopped trying to predict who would win according to voters since a lot has to do with politics, I mean, Cate Blanchett, supposedly the favorite to win for Best Actress might not win because of the resurfacing of Woody Allen's molestation allegations. Whatever. I will just pick my favorites.

  • Best Picture: Gravity
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role: Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role: Cate Blanchett
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role: Jared Leto
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role: Sally Hawkins
  • Best Achievement in Directing: Alfonso Cuaron
  • Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen: Blue Jasmine
  • Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published: The Wolf of Wall Street
  • Best Achievement in Editing: Gravity
  • Best Achievement in Production Design: Her

One of the few years that the Oscars could actually be exciting (upset wise) and yet I don't remember a time I've cared so little about watching it.

I just want Gravity to win it all and American Hustle to be shut out completely.

I'm glad 12 Years a Slave won, and I'm glad for all the awards that Gravity earned. Both of those films really deserved their achievements.

I was hoping that Leo would win over Matthew but the guy just can't catch a break.

Out of the best picture nominees I saw I'd probably rank them

1. Gravity

2. Wolf of Wall Street

3. Dallas Buyers Club

4. American Hustle

T5. Her

T5. Captain Phillips

That being said all were actually solid choices to be nominated in the first place. Didn't see 12 Years a Slave but everything I've heard makes it sound like a legitimate choice for the awards it won tonight. Most other awards seemed to be pretty solid choices as well, though something does feel weird about seeing The Great Gatsby (enjoyable, but hardly great) win 2 awards while American Hustle and Wolf of Wall Street win nothing.

Terrible winners this year. The only accurate ones were the technical awards for Gravity (except for cinematography, that completely belonged to Inside Llewyn Davis. And so did sound mixing, actually.) But everything else was bullshit.

Captain Phillips was really thrilling, I loved it. 12 Years A Slave had some very solid acting and nothing else.
