    Reviews on Filmleaf and discussion of all the main nominated films.

    The FSLC is pleased to have presented a lot of these: "Proudly, films that screened at the Film Society of Lincoln Center this year received more than 60 nominations, among them all five Best Foreign Language Film, four of the five Best Documentary Feature nominees and all five best director nominees." FLIGHT, which got a Best Actor nomination and Best Original Screenplay, had its world premiere at the NYFF; so did LIFE OF PI.

    I'd have replaced the execrable LES MISERABLES with MOONRISE KINDOM, which only got a Screenplay nomination, but the other titles are worthy.

    Ben Affleck for Best Director nomination missing

    Every year there is always controversy over who was snubbed at the Oscars and this year it is apparently Ben's turn for Argo and perhaps I would say bias on the part of the Academy who have a distaste for actors to be good directors, with some exceptions of course - Clint Eastwood, Rob Howard.

    You can hardly call ARGO snubbed when it's very much in the running for Best Picture and Best Screenplay plus four other nominations including Alan Arkin. They have to make distinctions and spread around the honors. I personally am not a huge fan of ARGO but I recognize that it is a successful mainstream historical thriller movie in which the Americans do the brave things and get away from the bad guys.

    Ben Affleck Is Among The Top Award Winner for Direction

    When Ben has been nominated and winning film directorial awards:

    Golden Globes nomination
    British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) nomination
    African American Film Critics Association winner
    Broadcast Film Critics Association winner (earlier yesterday evening)
    Central Ohio Film Critics Association nomination
    Chicago Film Critics Association nomination
    Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association nomination
    Denver Film Critics Society winner
    Detroit Film Critics Society nomination
    Directors Guild (DGA) nomination (this nomination and Ben's absence of an Oscar nomination is particularly telling)
    Florida Film Critics Circle winner
    Houston Film Critics Society winner
    International Press Academy nomination
    Oklahoma Film Critics Circle winner
    Online Film Critics Society nomination
    Online Film Critics Society nomination
    San Diego Film Critics Society winner
    Southeastern Film Critics Association winner
    St. Louis Film Critics winner
    Washington, D.C. Area Film Critics Association nomination

    his absence from an Oscar Best Director nomination is quite apparently at odds with most of the film industry and arguably your own preference. I would challenge anyone to make a case that other than Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty that no other director this year could be expected to have been more likely nominated for an Oscar best director.

    Michael Haneke, Amour, and Benh Zeitlin, Beasts of the Southern Wild, are clearly dark horses with almost no recognition for any directorial awards this season, even shutting out .
    Paul Thomas Anderson, The Master. In a way its a disservice for the former two to have been nominated because the Academy apparently ignored the consensus of film connoisseurs in the industry, almost suggesting they are using some either out of date, overly-traditional, or mysterious film criteria unknown to the rest of us, sort of like the National Rifle Association when it comes to gun control. One could even make the case that the Academy allowed politics to intrude into the Awards by choosing to avoid the more politically delicate topic of war in favor of feel good movies.

    Academy Awards Becoming Less Relevant

    If I recall, a number of posters have complained about the Academy of Arts and Sciences and their past selections of nominees and winners in regards to best film categories. With the striking omission of not just one but three leading contenders for best director:

    Kathryn Bigelow
    Ben Affleck
    Tom Hooper

    and the increasing media coverage and public attention converging on The Golden Globes and even the Broadcast Film Critics Association the relevancy and importance of the Oscars is diminished in my mind to the point that watching it is not really worth my time. Hopefully someone will be able to adequately explain the major oversight here. Even the emphasis on Lincoln, a movie that didn't even make my top ten list has been wondering about the whole Awards program.

    See the NY Times article on the Oscar noms today (11 Jan '13), "‘Lincoln’ Leads Oscar Field With 12 Nominations," for more on this. I can see reasons for each omission, though. Bigelow's film is deep in controversy. Affleck may be seen has having been so involved in his acting that it was more a team effort. Quentin Tarantino is controversial too. But I can't understand it, and it's not fair.

    But the shocker was a triple snub in the best director category: Kathryn Bigelow (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Ben Affleck (“Argo”) and Quentin Tarantino (“Django Unchained”) were passed over despite widespread expectations that one or all of them would be nominated. Instead, the nominations went to Steven Spielberg (“Lincoln”), Ang Lee (“Life of Pi”), Michael Haneke (“Amour”), David O. Russell (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Benh Zeitlin (“Beasts of the Southern Wild,” his first film).

    An Explanation

    Thank you Chris. I have some sense of reason to allow me to believe that the world hasn't turned upside down. I can at least recover with my asthma and bacterial inflection with less stress now. Thank you for keeping me alive.

    I may even watch the Oscars because of your sensible view of film making awards.

    Great roundtable discussion last night on Charlie Rose about the Oscar nominations, and helps to explain the "snub" certain directors and films received this year in trying to be an all-inclusive nominating process. Click on the 1/11/13 story called "Oscar discussion" if it doesn't come up automatically today (shows are shuffled by date)

    Oscar predictions...

    Best Actor - Daniel Day Lewis should receive his third Oscar for Best Actor. If he did, this would be the first time in the history of the Academy that any male actor has received more than two in the Best Actor catagory. It will be interesting to see as this is catagory has the most heated race.

    Best Actress - The catagory is the most up for grabs. Most of the critcs feel Emmanuelle Riva should get the nod. I understand Naomi Watts gave an impressive performance in "The Impossible." This is one is unpredictable.

    Best Director - the controversy in the nominations of this catagory arises from the problem of having too many films nominated for Best Picture without the directors of those films covered as well. However, the nominations are the result of 371 directors making the votes (directors vote in directors, actors actors, set designers vote for set designers and so on). To narrow the field down to five is always difficult and this year in particular when you have directors like Tarantino, Affleck, and others left out and their films nominated.

    Best Picture - A complete toss up but the odds on favorite will probably go to "Lincoln" as the logical choice of Academy voters.

    Satisfying Golden Globes Snub of The Academy of Arts and Sciences

    It was with great pleasure and satisfaction to watch the 70th Golden Globe Awards tonight as Argo, Les Miserable, and Silver Lining Playbook had a good night which the Academy of Arts and Sciences gave less than deserved recognition in my mind to the former two movies. Lincoln in my mind was over-rated due to its political correctness, mother and apple pie theme.

    As I've mentioned earlier, I feel the Golden Globes redeemed my past sense of bewilderment and frustration.

    You were the first person I thought of when "Argo" won both Best Director and Best Pix. You were the only person who bang the drum about "Argo" and proclaimed it's deserved accolades and you should be basking in that prediction today. Kudos
