I have watched the Academy Awards forever. Seth McFarland's performance was beyond awful.
Bring back Billy Crystal the first 20 minutes were painful.
Less is more. Respectfully kathleen

If Lincoln were a mediocre movie it would be nominated simply because of the name. The story
nitpicks only the noble parts of Lincoln's life and skipped the evil to glorify the man. Anyone playing lead actor was guaranteed to be nominated simply because it celebrates the so called Great Emancipator.


My predictions:


as Dorothy said I am startled that a person can earn $6392 in one month on the internet. did you read this link WOW92.COM


Lincoln loses, scept for actor. It's all balooney.

Jonathan Spence

I hope Life of Pi wins the Movie of the Year! Ang Lee was just brilliant and the CGI was fantastic. Django was a total flop. I had no idea there were so many historical mistakes and discrepancies! You can look it up on to see how these were all filmed.


The biggest injustice is not nominating Looper for Original screenplay. They nominated Zero Dark Thirty, which isn't even original, its based on a true story. They nominated Moonrise Kingdom, which nobody gives a damn about. They nominated Amour, in which hardly anything even happens. Don't get me wrong, its a great film, but 90% of its success it because of how good the acting was (which is why haneke shouldnt be nominated for directing either). The ideal field should be Looper, Django, Flight, Skyfall, and Ted.
also, silver linings playbook can fuck off.

Movie review

Listen, I've seen all the nominated movies and they are all fantastic. My opinion is that Silver Linings Playbook deserves to win the most. It touched me in a way that no other film did. It showed me that even in this crazy world, happy endings are still possible. You can still be loved. Please vote for Silver Linings Playbook.


Silver Linings Playbook is the best movie ever. They will win at least 1 Oscar

I think that Lincoln was a great movie and Daniel day lewis did great on that roll. And so did Anne Hathaway in that roll in the musical that was a movie what she took to play that roll. from Brita


Watch Oscar Awards 2013 Live


Picture: Argo or Lincoln, either is fine with me, great movies!!
Director: Steven Speilberg, only because Ben Affleck isnt nominated
Actor: Daniel Day Lewis, he only does Oscar worthy movies
Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, you talent and Oscars like her
Supporting Actor: Tommy Lee Jones, hands down, better performance than Lewis in Lincoln
Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway, veteran actress, probably only time she'll win, and she cut all her hair off for this movie.


@ Jay
I agree with you.


You gotta watch LIFE OF PI at least once [and then THINK about it even more], and you would realize that this film has to be the BEST PICTURE. It has all the great ingredients to win this accolade [hope The Academy get it right this time].

Art, Technology, Storytelling, All perfectly and beautifully blended together. It has such Great depth that makes you want to watch it over and over and over and over again, in a long, long, long, long time to come.

It's like listening to John Lennon. It's like slowly peeling an onion to find out what's in the core, whilst tears slowly trickle down.

Anyway, it doesn't really matter to me whether it wins any Oscars. @laurelhero

Michael M.

IF race/ethnicity of its nominees is one of the influencing factors in determining the Winners, then sadly The Academy will lose its meaning and its place/role as the ultimate representation of GLOBAL films recognition. @laurelhero


No Hobbit?
Why? Its better then most of these movies.


Awful movies and overrated performences. An 9 year old girl can get a nomination but not impressive and powerful actresses like Marion Cotillard or Rachel Weis? Poor Naomi was great but its between the PR ladies like Lawrence and Chastain. Terrible. The Academy has losts its touch.



Max Gratelli

This is bull, Django Unchained was the best movie and so was Zero Dark Thirty, Licoln sucked ball sack

Joseph daniel

I really thought that dicaprio this year is gonna have at least a nomination for his performance in django unchained. he is simply brillant, but it looks that the academy has his favorites… I´m just saying… but at same christopher waltz, that deserve also his nomination, dicarpio dieserve this nomination.


My Prediction
Best Picture: Lincoln (30%)
Best Director: Steven Spielberg (60%)
Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis (80%)
Best Actress: Jessica Chastain (40%)
Best Supporting Actor: Tommy Lee Jones (30%)
Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway (100%)
Best Foreign Language Film: Amour (95%)

Best Makeup: The Hobbit (50%)

Predicted that Lincoln will win 5, Life of Pi win 3, Zero Dark Thirty win 2, Les Miserables win 2!

Helmer Oster

We have actors like Meryl Streep and Daniel Day Lewis. Then we have personalities like
Sally Field and Denzel Washington. Distinction and versatility vs. been there, seen that!!


I really like all the nominations, maybe because im not a fanboy of a specific franchise – to me TDKR was shit compared to The Dark Knight, Hobbit was shit compared to TLOTR, and Cloud Atlas was shit compared to anything it made no sense. And something tells me the people defending Cloud, hated the tree of life, last year so lets not b cynical. And also the girl fr beasts was great, she deserved it more than Mirren who would b only a "filler" like Meryl. If anything I would drop watts for cottillard. N director I would drop David for Kathryn not Ben. I pick Life of Pi to win because if they award Argo they would look more followers than leaders so they won't do that. N Lincoln is too divisive.

Life of Pi
Steven Spieldberg
Daniel D. Lewis
Jennifer Lawrence
Amour (screenplay)
Lincoln (screenplay)
Alan arkin
Anne Hathaway


The Oscar's will match the Globes in the major categories with Haneke replacing Affleck for Best Director. Mark my words.


Argo movie deserve in Oscar best movies categories.Argo is based on a unique story.i like this movie.

becky parrish

Mind Boggling! How in the hell could a movie be nominated for Best Movie and it's director not be nominated for Best Director????????? That is a complete contradiction.
Hello, Quentin Tarantino for Django, Ben Affleck for Argo, etc!!!!!
Outrageous, the Academy needs to get their act and logic together, even if it means changing the election process!

Where is The Hobbit?? Why only 3 nominations?! :(


The academy really has gone to shit, as this year's lot have proven. Not a single nomination for TDKR, Cloud Atlas or The Raid. Silver Linings Playbook got nominated in best picture, director, screenplay and all four acting categories, and it was average at best. Marion Cotillard wasn't nominated for Rust & Bone. The Hobbit wasn't nominated for Original score. And, why do the academy feel the need to consistently ignore Christopher Nolan? Memento, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Inception are consistently considered amoung the best films of the 2000s, and only one of them (Inception) even got a best picture nom, and he hasn't had a single best director nom. The only decent year for the academy in recent memory was 2003 (when Return Of The King won 11 out of 11).

Oalid Islam

wanna keep intouch


I was not the hugest fan of Lincoln, at all. I am really wishing Argo got more nominations, it was a great movie, I wish Ben Affleck would have gotten nominated as Best Director for Argo. It makes me sad…


The best part of the actual nominations being announced is that we get to compare them side-by-side with your wacky predictions and see how wrong you were (schadenfreude). But you've deprived us of this opportunity and committed an act of journalistic incompetence by replacing your predictions with nominations and winner predictions instead of placing the new information where it belongs, in a separate article.


Javier Bardem in Skyfall? Could there actually be a supporting actor Oscar nomination for a Bond film? NO WAY! Whatever… I enjoy a lot his acting, and 'Silva' was such an amazing character to watch.


The Hobbit only a couple of nominations? The world has gone mad!!


,,The Hobbit" is the best movie I've seen this year. Richard Armitage is amazing :) ,,The Hobbit" should be nominated in many categories!


I think that Django Unchained should win best picture! Not only does it have solid acting, direction, plot and a fantastic original songs, but because of its controversial subject matter and the fact that it sticks tue to the days without backing away from the violence or the terrible ways white people treated black people. If it wins, the academy awards will have a new standed of how visually and verbally graphic and explicit a movie can be. Well that's MO anyway!!!


I think its quite possible Les Miserables could lead the nominations… It is almost a lock in 9 categories because of its acting and the technical aspects. I really hope Eddie Redmayne joins Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman as a contender for the acting categories!


Zero Dark Thirty is a predicted favourite, but CIA people and the special committee may seek to ensure that the picture be banned from the competition. It is theoretically possible to interpret the story and plot more liberally and differently than it is immediately suggested. If you watch it very closely, you will see things that are ostensibly obvious (CIA girls have it harder) are not so very obvious. What you think is regular stuff for American patriots may be seen as an elaborate conspiracy theory: if you watch it very, very closely, you will probably see there was more than one "human error" committed there. The ending of the movie (eg intentional and effective or ineffective, depending on how you interpret the picture; was Maya the only agent supposed to ID the X before he disappeared without a trace? ) suggests and shows there may be more to it than the eye can see. Bigelow is smarter than you think. She should win again.


I have seen most of these movies. Les Miserable is the best. It is a mastpiece. Hugh jackman deserves to be best actor. Anne and Eddie should be best support actress and actor. It should be the best picture. I will watch it again and read the book again. Buy the dvd in the future.







The hobbit should get something, it was brilliant. TDKR is overrated crap. Funny how all the reviews said its was gonna snag major award but it hasn't been nomiated for any award lately.


from my movie blog, where my predictions in the six major categories stand currently. I'll do final update Wednesday:


My predictions:
Picture – Life Of Pi
Director – Kathryn Bigelow (ZDT)
Actor – Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln)
Actress – Jennifer Lawrence (SLB)
Supporting Actor – Phillip Seymour Hoffman (The Master)
Supporting Actress – Anne Hathaway (Les Mis)
Screenplay (Original) – The Master
Screenplay (Adapted) – Argo
Score – Howard Shore (The Hobbit)

…And why I want to win
Picture – ZDT
Director – Christopher Nolan (TDKR)
Actor – Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln)
Actress – Marion Cotillard (Rust & Bone)
Supporting Actor – Sir Michael Caine (TDKR)
Supporting Actress – Don't really mind
Screenplay (Original) – ZDT
Screenplay (Adapted) – Cloud Atlas
Score – Howard Shore (The Hobbit)


Let's get serious! Lincoln, Les Mis, Argo et al are just little funny jokes when compared with ZTD.


Anyone know who will announce the oscar noms this year?

just wanted to congratulate the programmer of this website for the genius placement of this ridiculous social media bar. why have the article at all just re-name this site social media bar. fucking morons


I'd never seen the stageplay but was blown away by Les Mis the movie. IMHO: Hugh Jackman ought to get Best Actor for Les Mis; Anne Hathaway Best Actress Les Mis; Samantha Barks Best Supporting Actress Les Mis (would be a terrible shame if they put Hathaway and Barks both into this category against each other); Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Hair and Makeup, Best Costumes, Best Original Song, Best Sound Editing, Best Production Design = all Les Mis. I've seen most of the other main contenders and think Daniel Day Lewis could/should possibly beat out Hugh Jackman for Best Actor.


I read through most of these comments and I'm blown away at the lack of chatter about Les Mis? I personally am a huge fan of a lot of films this year (Lawless, Les Mis, The Hobbit, Lincoln, Argo, the list goes on), but Les Mis has been so hyped and talked about…where's the rallying support? Come on, Les Mis fans!


Shocking! Brilliant! Nicole Kidman is always reinventing herself. She deserves the Oscar nomination for versatility and the risks assumed… Sexy, Wild, Exotic. Charlotte Bless is one of the characters for the history of contemporary cinema. Art

Movie Truth

I don't know why so many people are pushing for The Avengers to get any oscars other than visual effects. The movie was well recieved because Whedon did the perfect job of making a fun and enjoyable super hero movie. It wasn't too over the top, was witty, true to its origins, and not too campy or predictable. Many past super hero movies just all in all aren't fantastic and have many flaws. Whedon finally made a movie in this genre that stayed on the right track and was fun at the same time! However it does not deserve all the awards in the world my dear fan boys/girls. It was a good summer blockbuster, not a well crafted (basically piece of art) like these other films. Please get that through your head. The directing was nice but nothing special, and the acting (minua Tom Hiddleston who should have atleast gotten a golden globe nom) was well done but not oscar worthy what so ever. The Dark Knight Rises is a different story. Yes another super hero movie, but it dove into a lot different themes and explored some fantastic things. It would be nice to see this film grab a several nominations because of how well made it was and basically how utterly brilliant and innovative this entire trilogy is. It would also be a nice change for the academy to open up to something like this, but I don't think they will. And on a final note I just want to say it is so annoying to see several people mention that many of the possible nominees are one that not many people have heard of. You are kidding right? Lincoln, Argo, Le Miz, Django, Life of Pi, and Zero Dark Thirty are all very well known movies. Open your eyes folks!

NameVernon Sears

Your CommentI think that Lincoln will have a big sweep including best actor , best supporting actor , best diretor , best picture , best original score , best editing , best make-up and best cinema-photography


i really tink the life of pi should win for best picture


No mention of the Avengers of any amazing actor/actress in it?! Blasphemy!


Indiewire is predicting, with these acting nomination predictions, that for the first time in Academy award history only 2 acting nominees will be first time nominees. The existing record for one year is 5, and in a typical year about 10 of the acting nominees are first time nominees. When trying to predict acting nominees look for people who've never been nominated before.


Not even one mention of The Grey or Liam Neeson – absolutely shocking if you consider the performance he gave, and the quality of this film.


I really want "The Impossible" to win all of it's nomination.. Yes, I am in love with this film. It was a very sad and touching story. It really gets you thinking on what you have and makes you appreciate life even more. The acting was also beyond perfect. Every deatil was just spectacular. I think that the movie deserves to win. I mean I liked almost all the other movies, but "The Impossible" is based on a true event and a real family. It is something real, not just some fake thing that you can only dream or think about. It could have happened to anyone. I totally nominate it to work; it's a masterpeice.

Art Effect

So excited for the ceremony this year! And what will take home Best Picture? Hmm… we wrote some predictions on our blog – check it out!

Stuart O'Connor

End of Watch…..could it be possible that 2 male actors in a leading role in the same movie win the Oscar…….. Gyllenhall and Pena……if neither are up for the award Ill stop watching movies…as for David Ayers he has taken Cop movie making to a whole new level……unbelieveable serious edge of seat stuff

ed lichtenfeld

how many oscars will be presented in 2013 on 2/24?

António Freitas

Well, here are my predictions.
Movie: Argo, Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, Silver Linings Playbook, Life of Pi, Les Miserables, Django Unchained. Lincoln will win.
Director: Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Ben Afflek, Paul Thomas Anderson, Ang Lee. Paul Thomas Anderson will win
Actor: Daniel Day Lewis, John Hawkes, Denzel Washington, Joaquin Phoenix, Bradley Cooper. Joaquin Phoenix will win, but the most beautiful work is John Hawkes
Actress: Jessica Chastain, Naomi Wats, Jennifer Lawrence, Emmanuelle Riva, Marion Cotillard. Jessica Chastain, but i would like to see win Emmanuelle Riva
We'll see …


I think it is possible that "Amour" gets an best picture nomination, but it will lose against "the Untouchables" in best foreign film categorie at the Sscars . The Chances are small, but it is realistic, like 20%-30 % . The Untouchables won`t get an best picture nomination for sure . Sounds weird but it could really happen !


ZDT wins and takes it all! It's going to be Bigelow again.


Because of your failure to acknowledge 2016 as a worthy documentary, I am choosing to snub the Academy. Our home will not be going to the theatre from now on and we will not be watching the awards on TV. We will also be encouraging all we know to boycott movies from now throughout 2013.

Eulalia Díaz Yagüe

In my opinion as an expert on Reincarnation and Past Lifetimes, "Cloud Atlas" story does not reach the climax, it says "everything is connected" but does not show up any connection, only that the characters are played by the same actors in diffetent lifetimes, but there is no conductor issue so for me it was empty, it explains really nothing. It is nice to see but get to know our previous lifetimes and how they affect our present one is much more than that.

Lautaro Lacoste

Check my blog!




Check my predictions at


in my opinion, matt damon should be at least among the list of best supporting actor


Am I the only person who thinks Cloud Atlas is being vastly undervalued? I think it should make the list for best adapted screenplay.


Do you guys hate Looper or something, I think that it will be a Best Picture nominee with 10 movies, and you guys listed TWENTY+ higher. Looper wasn't mentioned for that category OR Best Director. I strongly disagree. With this major gap in your predictions, everything else seems to be almost perfect. Thank you.


I would disagree with comments that Adele's "Skyfall" might be ineligible because the "Bond theme" is simply a chord progression that has been entirely re-orchestrated and used as the bass of the song. The melody is entirely original and so is the music, even though it features the iconic chord progression. If the Academy disqualified it on the basis of those chords, then they would have to meticulously search through EVERY song and EVERY piece of music considered from there on out for the category to see if there was a shared element… it's ridiculous and unfair. "Skyfall" is an iconic Bond song and an accomplishment in film music and deserves to be recognized as such. Also, didn't the 1st and 3rd LOTR original scores have a similar issue that was eventually and rightfully circumvented so that the 3rd film could win Best Original Score?


I hope Spike Lee's Bad25 documentary will be nominated in the BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE category!


I'm hoping that the cast and staff behind The Perks of Being a Wallflower receive a nomination. I'm hoping that the fact it came from a young adult genre doesn't hinder it's chances. It is a truly remarkable and moving film and Stephen Chbosky really deserves to be recognized for it.

John Flake

In about a week from now, they dynamics of this race will change when 'Zero Dark Thirty' soars to the front of the pack. Its a gut feeling, but I think Bigelow delivers a punch that makes this awards season quite less interesting.


"Paperman" for best animated short!


Not bad…


I'm a skunk


I think "The Avengers" is being underestimated a little bit here. It could be nominated in more than "Best Visual Effects."


Visual Effects gives me 404


Balls. Not a single mention of The Hobbit Part 1, where the franchise has previously won 17 awards out of 30 nominations, and so far has had every film nominated for best picture. I predict a best actor/supporting actor for Ian Mckellen.

Stephen Earnest

I expected at least some attention for "Killer Joe," but it looks like the film hasn't got a chance thus far. Was hoping Friedkin, Letts, McConaughey and Gershon might all get recognized for their respective categories.

numan dent

Somethings gonna live:


I know the dark knight rises was not as good as the dark knight but does it not deserve to be a little higher on the best picture chances and also Christopher Nolan as well for his brilliant work on the series.


Disagree with me if you want, but I think two of the films that should be nominated for Best Animated Feature should be "Brave" (it was a pretty good bounce-back for Pixar) and "ParaNorman" (beforehand, I thought it would be forgettable, but then I noticed that it was from the company that made "Coraline" and I got excited and curious. I went to see it the other day and, in my opinion, it didn't disappoint).

List of the live action short film that will compete for the Oscar

The nominations could be:
-A fábrica
-The Exaordinary life of Rocky
-Fishing without Nets


Nominations for Effie? Emma Thompson supporting actress and writer? Art direction? Costume design?


Oh yes!! the Iconic Houston there must be!! :-)


Whitney Houston should have a nomination for sparkle, absolutely!


Put on list for nomination Cosmopolis and Twilight Breaking Down Part 2

Please :-)


What about Prometheus? Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron did marvelously? If worst comes to worst, Fassbender gets a nod. All this is based off of movies you haven't seen like Django? How do you know Django won't suck? I know that's the point of predictions but don't throw so much weight behind an unreleased movie when you've got so much to work with in terms of Oscar-worthy movies (Prometheus, Moonrise Kingdom and Safety Not Guaranteed all got snubbed by you.)


Y'know, I'm hoping "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Safety Not Guaranteed" score best picture noms.


And what about Nicole Kidman as supporting actress?


Have you even seen "The Master" trailer? Judging by it, it seems far more likely that Joaquin Phoenix is the true lead, and will score the nom. Of course, there's also a possibility for a double lead nom. Oooohh….


I would love if something Lawless gets a nomination, hope and Weinstein decides to push this in the race.

Debjyoti Roy

chance for spielberg to get nominated in best director category is very low as i think that he has lost his best times.
will cheer for leo dicaprio.
and moonrise kingdom and amour likely to get nominations for best pic.

Caleb Rogers

I'm predicting that Steven Spielberg (Director), Tommy Lee Jones, Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, John Williams, Michael Kahn, Tony Kushner, Paul Webb and John Logan will all win an oscar.


I'm predicting Paul Thomas Anderson winning best director and picture for The Master.


I think Anne Hathaway will be nominated for Supporting Actress for Les Miserables.


Maggie Smith winning a 3rd Oscar. Really???

Edward Copeland

It was bad enough knowing that Loony Luhrmann planned to make a movie version of one of the greatest novels of all time in 3D when nothing about the subject matter screams 3D but then to see a trailer that he'll do his usual nonsense with anachronistic pop music (and I assume no song will play in its entirety since he has the attention span of a gnat), I'm starting to think that by the time this misfire opens, people will be reassessing Jack Clayton's mediocre 1974 version as "better than we remembered" in comparison.


Day-Lewis and Field winning 3rd Oscars? I don't think that will happen. AMPAS rarely awards 3 Oscars to actors (Streep, Nicholson, Hepburn, Brennan, Bergman). Only five time in 85 years.


I think Best Supporting Actress should be leaning toward the wonderful Vanessa Redgrave…
