I am always confused when a film is nominated for best picture but not best director.

Nine film spots; five director spots. Something's got to give.

 

I really pissed at the Hawkes snub. What does this guy have to do?

Is Silver Linings Playbook that good? Lots of hype around it and Lincoln (but that's expected, considering DDL + Spielberg).

^^ Right? Like otherwordly fucking scary. And Winter's Bone. Maybe he's an utter asshole in real life and they hate him.

 

^ Yes, it is that good. Cooper has a real shot.

Time to see some movies I guess. I've only watched Django and Zero Dark Thirty out of the Best Pictures category so far.

Glad Leo was left out. Hamming it up does not a good performance make.

Am I the only person that thinks Beasts should win? I was lukewarm on all of these based on true story movies because they are all rife with inaccuracies. Argo is especially egregious in this respect.

For picture? It has no chance of that.

 

Some cosmic miracle might see adapted screenplay if they don't feel they need to reward Argo for the Affleck fuck up.

Argo was not a good movie. They took the wrong tack by going for suspense and making things up. The problem is that you know the people make it out so all suspense is undermined. They should have tried to do a better job conveying the fear.

Argo is a very good movie and it was exceedingly well directed. That's the fuck up. I would put it on that list well above ZDT, DU, or (as lovely as it is) BotSW.

But every dramatic plot point is patently false. Fiction is compelling because it reveals something, non-fiction is compelling because it is real. When you take a true story and add a bunch of made up events and dramatic moments it turns into nothing more than petty entertainment. And worse than being lifeless it is insulting to the real people involved, many of whom have spoken out against the movie.

That's a different discussion and valid only if the film claims to be the truth. It doesn't.

 

"Because we say it's based on a true story, rather than this is a true story, we're allowed to take some dramatic license." 

Ben Affleck

 

Trust me, I'm Canadian and didn't appreciate the slight it paid the Canadians who risked their lives and had the direct hand in saving those six people. I found it funny that Affleck had to change the end title card after a near revolt at TIFF. But when I judge a film for an Academy Award I put all that aside and ask a few simple questions - does the film tell a compelling story? Did it achieve what it set out to do? In this case it does. I don't particularly give a shit what the story is. That's the point of a Best Picture award.
