I feel a sadness that the fully realized geniuses of David O Russell and Joaquin Phoenix aren't much competition to things like classic politicking from a Ben Affleck...the rain matches this feeling. But I will endure. As humans continue to do in that impressive way.
Congratulations to all winners! Argo was a fantastic film and Ben Affleck was superb-he deserved the win! Daniel Day Lewis is my all time favorite-so glad he got Best Actor-making this his third Oscar! He is brilliant! I enjoyed seeing Christopher Plummer present, and also The Tribute of 50 years to and Oscar to The Bond Films-Congrats to all- this was a tough vote as there was a lot of talent! I worked on Silver Linings Playbook so am partial to that film- love Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro, and David O'Russell-- and the author was a first time writer! Lets hear it for first timers! Also congratulations to all screenwriters and people behind the camera and working on the set that bring the film to life! It takes a great team and a lot of hard work and long hours! Everyone deserves a round of applause!!
I would have said well I wish Ben Affleck but I really hope Ang Lee or David O Russell wins. What about you man?
Oscar voting officially closed. You'd be wise to mark *these names down for wins- *Anne Hathaway -best supporting actress *Jennifer Lawrence- Best Actress Supporting Actor- WAY too close to call. Biggest surprise of the night IMO *DDL- Best Actor *Argo -Best Picture Director- is WIDE OPEN Ben Affleck was not nominated and everyone is predicting Argo to win Best Picture, a film hasn't won best picture w/out a directing nomination since Driving Miss Daisy in '89. Safe bet is on Spielberg to win, but I'm still hoping for David O Russell to win for SLP, but Ang Lee can pull it out for LoP. Best Foreign Language film will be *Amour, Academy loved it enough to nominate it for best picture as well as best foreign film. Best Cinematography- My heart says Roger Deakins will win for Skyfall (it's his 10th nomination & 0 wins.) But my head knows they'll give it to "Life of Pi." Anna Karenina -Best Costume Design (I want to give this to Les Mis so bad, but the Academy loves the period pieces of Anna) Orig. screenplay ...
I can give or take David O Russell but his movie was solid start to finish. Benh Zeitlin is a visionary who pushed cinema forward by a mile with a budget of ten bucks. Ang Lee can direct, literally, any film better than anyone else. Not a fan of Lincoln but to see Michael Haneke make the cut for his perfect 10 of a film is joyous. Tarantino will be back, Tom Hooper cut through the line two years ago and just got oaud back for it and Ben Affleck and Katherine Bigelow can team up for a really funny comedy but about being snubbed when they were both predicted to win.
Actor Anupam Kher has been nominated at the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards this year in the best ensemble cast category alongwith his co-stars in 'Silver Linings Playbook'. The David O Russell-directed film has also picked up nominations for lead actor Bradley Cooper, actress Jennifer Lawrence and supporting actor Robert De Niro. 'Silver Linings Playbook' is up against Ben Affleck's 'Argo', India-set film 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel', musical drama 'Les Miserables' and 'Lincoln' in the Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture category. "As an actor, it is most gratifying to be recognised by one's peers. Hence this nomination is a high point for me, professionally," Kher said in a statement. The film has bagged four nominations at the 2013 Golden Globes and is being considered as a strong contender at the Oscars. PTI
