Will ‘Amour’ find no love with the Academy tomorrow?
A word to all you Oscar lovers out there. In less than 24 hours time, hosts Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone will announce the Academy Awards nominees. The reason you’re reading this is because the official Oscar predictions have been updated, and the staple is in the paper…at least on the prognosticating side.
In the Best Picture category, ten films are being predicted for citation, although I’m fairly confident that number will become nine when the nominees are announced. Argo, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty are six films everyone feels confident will make the cut. Deemed ineligible all season for many guild awards, Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts of the Southern Wild seems like a film that was built for the 5% rule. With the recent nomination from the Producers Guild, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom has picked up momentum in the later weeks of the season. It’s safe to place it as a likely nominee, as well.

The nominees for the 27th annual American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) awards have been announced, and the Oscar frontrunners – Life of Pi, Skyfall, and Lincoln – are present as expected. Rounding out the field are Les Miserables and Anna Karenina, who most likely edged out other expected contenders such as The Master and Zero Dark Thirty. Wait, what? The Master missed on another guild? At this point, the biggest shock to me on Thursday morning would be to see that film in the Best Picture lineup. The ASC awards will be handed out on February 10th, and you can have a look at the full nominee list after the jump.

Oscar Track Record: Never Nominated
I found myself watching Vanilla Sky (2001) today and seeing that back in the early 2000s, Cameron Diaz was up near the front of the line of someone aching for an Oscar nomination. After impressing critics years prior in There’s Something About Mary (1998) and surprising with a win from the New York Film Critics Award and a Golden Globe nominations, Diaz was in her prime. She followed up with a brilliant performance in Spike Jonze’s Being John Malkovich (1999) which she received both Golden Globe and SAG nominations for. When it came time for Oscar, co-star Catherine Keener only managed a nomination from the Academy. Diaz also co-starred opposite Daniel Day-Lewis and Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York (2002), a performance that received mixed reviews from critics.

The nominees for the 33rd annual Razzie Awards have been announced. For those unaware, the Razzie’s are basically a satire on the awards season, and single out the worst achievements in film for the year. Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 managed to collect a total of 11 nominations, and what is more (un)impressive is that it achieved those 11 nods in only 10 categories. The winners (if that’s what we’re calling them) will be announced the night before the Oscars, Saturday, February 23rd. Have a look at the rest of the worst of the year after the jump.

BAFTA Nominations have been announced. Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln leads the nomination but misses out on a directing mention in favor of Quentin Tarantino for Django Unchained. Skyfall, a film we all assumed would do well managed nominations but missed Best Picture. Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi also made a strong showing.
