    I try not to get too excited about the Oscars, but I am genuinely surprised by these nominations. I don’t want to complain that my favorites weren’t selected, but I still feel as if they really dropped the ball, especially on the foreign film and documentary selections. No Queen of Versailles? Really?

  • O O O

    puha.

  • Adam Cook

    I never would’ve predicted this Haneke Takes Hollywood BS. Whatever.

  • O O O

    The feeling of that you’re watching something important goes a long way.

    Amour being nominated in five major categories is indeed a surprise. Whether it wins is another thing – after all, The White Ribbon went home empty-handed, although the sheer strength of its showing this time ’round says well of its chances in the Foreign Language category at least.

    Anyway, these are who will likely win, in some of the other major categories anyway:

    BP: Les Miserables
    Lead Actor: DDL; if not, Jackman
    Lead Actress: Jessica Chastain (Riva snaring it is but a dream, sadly)
    Supporting Actor: PSH
    Supporting Actress: Hathaway
    Director: Ang Lee; if not, Spielberg
    Adapted Screenplay: Life of Pi; if not, Lincoln
    Original Screenplay: Zero Dark Thirty

    I’d give Riva Best Actress, as she was, for me, what kept the movie from being the cold exercise in pain that the film’s detractors see it as.

    As for the Haneke love from the Academy, I’m not sure it’s really “Haneke love”, per se. The vast majority of Academy members are over the age of 50, so a film about old age (an extremely rare subject for Hollywood film) may strike them as particularly useful and daring. Also, the film’s form has a feeling of arthouse classicism to it—that is, the style struck me as being reminiscent of the Bergman films that captured the Academy’s heart back in the 60s. I’d wager that Amour is the sort of film that the Academy thinks of when they think “foreign film”—something like Tabu or Holy Motors (or Cache or The White Ribbon) is too damn weird.

  • Duncan Gray

    To be honest, and I’m sure why, I’m more annoyed by all the Oscar love for Beasts of the Southern Wild than I am by Amour.

  • SmokeyPSD

    Skyfall for original score. Really? David Arnold never got so much as a nomination and he revitalized/shaped the modern Bond sound and got the musical landscape and structure set out by John Barry. I got the feeling Thomas Newman was out of his element on the project.

  • O O O

    The feeling of that you’re watching something important goes a long way — The packaging can be both ‘levis-ad poetic realism’ or ‘arthouse classicism’.

    But true it would be very exciting if Riva would get the Female lead.

  • Válter Santos

    The best Oscars nominations I’ve seen in a long time.
    Still, where’s The Master’s score by Jonny Greewood? I really think he would deserve another chance after being disqualified 5 years ago with There Will Be Blood’s score.

    Very excited about Amour’s nominations too. Just having been nominated to all the important categories (except the Best Actor) is a victory.

  • Válter Santos

    Also, I’m disappointed with the choice of my country to take João Canijo’s ‘Blood of my Blood’ for a nomination to Best Foreign Movie… with Miguel Gomes’ ‘Tabu’, we would have had much more chances to get in the final nominees. It’s a shame…
