REACTION:  Rush is pretty much dead.  It should have easily snuck in here instead of Saving Mr. Banks, for it's editing is raved and is said to be VERY showy (I still haven't seen the film) so you can probably write it off for Oscar noms (maybe in Sound it'll show up) and this means really good things for Gandolfini.  I know, you may say that these categories are not related, but support is support and Bruhl needed more support for his film, which seems to have NO passion (not even a cinematography mention in a field of SEVEN the other day).

Also, Stories We Tell missing here is bullshit, since it's the single best edited film I've seen all year regardless of category, and far better than Blackfish.  I'm stunned it missed.

I'm pretty confident that our Oscar lineup is going to be 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Gravity & The Wolf of Wall Street.


  1. Now Hollywood is the modern amount in the word. The most popular movie in Hollywood word is now Bluray and 3D Movie.

  2. My picks as of right now are Gravity and The Wolf of Wall Street.

  3. I think you're right about that Oscar lineup, but Bruhl's domination across the board is hard to ignore. I'm predicting a Gandolfini snub. :(
