Wolf of Wall St should not be a lock - I saw it a academy screening last week and it was at best avg, and in my estimation below avg. It shouldn't be a best pic nominee, and hopefully won't be. As for the others, Her is a lock for best pic - in fact a true contender against Gravity for the win. Fruitvale Station is way overrated - plus the director took so many liberties with story and presented more as propaganda, not a good movie at all with avg at best acting. Hopefully, this doesn't get major awards respect bc it doesn't deserve it.As for my top 10 (having just seen American Hustle)1. Her2. Gravity3. American Hustle4. Nebraska5. Blue Jasmine6. Frances Ha7. Lone Survivor8. Inside Llewyn Davis9. Saving Mr. Banks10. All is Lost/Captain Phillips

I'm sorry, but I can't take anyone who leaves 12 Years a Slave off their 10 best-list very seriously. Seriously. And Gravity? Overhype. I suspect strongly it won't fair well at the Oscars.

December 9, 2013 9:40 PMReply
My top 10 Oscar predictions once again matched the AFI's top 10, which in included Her and Fruitvale Station. Although last year the nominations weren't the same. I don't agree with your order but I do agree with your top 9 and think that Fruitvale Station should be moved up. I still think 12 years a slave will win. Picture and director because they don't tend to split the awards regardless of how great Cuaron was and how a split could honor both films.

My new prediction (Just think of which movies are oscar material rather than buzz making movies)Look for win1. Gravity2. 12 Years a Slave3. The Wolf of Wall StreetLock for nominees4. Inside Llewyn Davis (Oscar cant neglect coen brother)5. Nebraska (Old folks voters loved old people movies e.g last year foreign film amour)6.

It could be the last year beast of southern wild)Under the Question which one oscar choose9. American Hustle (Entertaining film rather than oscar material)10. All Is Lost (Now this is oscar material)11/12.

Let me say first that I have not seen Wolf yet but I do not think it will win Best Picture. No matter how good it is, I've heard it is mainly excessive sex that serves no purpose to the story at all.

I do agree that Gravity is a great film (except for Clooney's part) and I do agree that it should be nominated but I don't see any reason for it winning for a movie that's 90 minutes long and only focuses on Sandra Bullock trying to get the hell out of space and while she did give a good performance most of her performance was panicking

The way I see it, this is one of those years where its simply luck of the draw. So many contenders, so few slots for each award. Even having a maximum of ten Best Picture nominees doesn't cover a movie season like this one. Not all of us saw this coming.
December 3, 2013 5:31 PMReply
American Hustle is hardly a maybe. Nebraska is maybe not that much of a lock. It will most likely be nominated in these categories but the Satellite awards for example didn't give it a Picture or Director or Screenplay nomination, which shows that people like it but might not want to vote for it.
December 3, 2013 4:56 PMReply
While I see Gravity worthy of being a nomination, I personally don't think it should win, I think movies like Inside Llewyn Davis, Captain Phillips, 12 Years a Slave, etc. deserves it, also I still want to know why Book Thief is there and not Rush?

I'm surprised no one has given any love to Mud. It's the best film that I've seen so far this year, and I've seen nearly every film mentioned here (with the exception of those that haven't been widely released yet). I'm not saying it should win, but I think it's worthy of a nomination in a category that can have up to 10.

If Gravity wins, then the Oscars are officially done. Gravity is not art. It can win Best Special Effects, but that's it. It's empty, it has no storyline, a failure of narrative, the came cheesy jokes, bad bad acting, and very overrated. Piece of shit just like Argo , that movie has already been forgotten.

I may be a lone outsider: I did not at all like 12 Years a Slave. The story is meant to invoke deep emotions, and I guess it did. As a movie, holistically, and concerning the acting, it really sucks. Sorry! Very amateurish acting and long pauses of nothingness. Nothing as profound as last year's Amour. Also filled with slow moves. Slave is not a movie I will recommend to anyone. If you want to see acting, go see Blue Jasmine, or Nebraska, or Dallas Buyers Club. Those are movies.
December 7, 2013 6:30 PM
Robert, I completely agree with you. I was really not impressed with 12 Years a Slave as a movie. Yes, slavery was bad. Please have more to your movie than that. Django Unchained was a good movie that had slavery as a backdrop, but didn't win the Oscar. 12 Years a Slave is a dull boring movie that hits you over the head with how bad slavery is and will go into this year's Oscars as the overwhelming favorite.

This is the first year this decade where I can declare two masterpieces! Between 12 years a slave and Before Midnight this has been a very satisfying movie year! To me these are great films that both did something new to cinema! They are uncomparable in almost every regard except that both left me thinking, haunted and mesmerized for days! I have not seen many of the other movies listed but will say Gravity aside from impressive visual effects to me was very disappointing and over hyped...this is coming from a fan of Alfonso Cuaron. I do hope Blue Jasmine gets nominated also and feel Cate Blanchette easily deserves best actress! Lets hope the oscars get it right next year because they usually don't and especially when it comes to the best picture winner!
November 27, 2013 9:23 PM

How come Inside Llewyn Davis isn't an absolute lock, if not, could easily be major contenders?It has the directors, a great story, some fine actors, and rave early reviews to boot.Nebraska and Her should also be in the 'could easily be major contenders' based on the above reasoning.

December 11, 2013 4:37 PM
I am hearing more and more reflection on 12 Years a Slave leading to a conclusion that though interesting, this is not a masterpiece film. The subject matter is a revelation in some areas, but the evokation of guilt is no basis for Oscar. Our further opinion is that if one wants to feel guilty, Fruitvale station is much more relevant, and a better realized film.By the way, as we consider this years crop of films, we think it has been a very good indie year. Blue Jasmin? Dallas Buyers Club? Fruitvale Station? Not a missed beat in any of them.
November 28, 2013 1:34 PM
Could not agree with you more. So sad that 'white guilt" will be only reason why this mediocre and extremely badly-acted movie 'Slave" might actually win the most coveted price of the year. If it does, the Academy Awards are no longer about movie-making and acting.
November 18, 2013 4:09 PMReply
Is "Rush" really out of the top 20? Okay, perhaps not Best Picture-material, but one of the most thrilling films of the year. If it nails the other 5-7 nominations predicted in other categories, it's weird that the film isn't even included on this list.

I've seen "Gravity", "The Butler", "Captain Phillips" and "Dallas Buyer's Club". Gravity was technically amazing and deserves plenty of awards for its camerawork and visual effects. Dallas Buyer's Club was emotionally compelling and had an incredible performance by McCoughnahey. I'd probably put it a step above the Butler but both were really well made and well acted films about extraordinary people. Looking forward to seeing 12 Years a Slave, Inside Llewyn Davis (which looks as good as any of them), and Wolf of Wall Street.

Lone Survivor is going to sneak up on everyone. I have seen it, and I feel that it is stronger then Hurt Locker. It is the best film made about the current conflicts that has been made. 12 Years a Salve is good, but not that good. Too much hype on it's way to the awards, people will be tired of it. Also it has not registered that high with the academy members I know who have seen it. I don't think Lone Survivor will win, but it will be a nominee for sure.

Just got back from seeing 12 Years a Slave. Best movie of the year so far. It was way better than Gravity which was, in my opinion, overrated.

I'm sad to see "Prisoners" loose steam so quickly. It's been the best film I've seen so far this year (including Captain Phillips and Gravity). Surprised to see "Nebraska" tracking for BP as it seemed the discussion was just around Bruce Dern. Also a bit surprised to see "Blue Jasmine" as a contender since it hasn't made nearly the same kind of money as "Midnight in Paris" did.The rest of the list makes a lot of sense. Glad to see "Her" is still tracking with strength. Meanwhile, if a family film has to get in I'd rather it be "Saving Mr. Banks" than the nothing of a film that was "The Butler."

How could you leave out 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2'? Typical elitism.

Philomena is one of those films that end out sneaking up on the Oscar race. Twelve Years a Slave has gotten considerable backlash since its release. Gravity probably won't win because of it's Sci-Fi vibe, which the Academy has never embraced. Same thing goes with Her. Inside Llewyn Davis will probably have too many dark comedic elements, so it probably wont win. Nebraska is too small scale to win. Dallas Buyers Club might get nominated, but surely wont win. Saving Mr. Banks is almost a sure bet to get nominated, but it isn't good enough to win. August simply isn't good enough. That leaves 3 contenders, American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street and Philomena.

And My predicted nominees are1. 12 Years a Slave (If stupid film django is nominated than this cruel race film should won)2. The Wolf of Wall Street (Martin is back. His films are always a legend) 3. Gravity (Outstanding. The best space film for long time)4. Captain Phillips (Great Film not memorable but good for nominee)5. Nebraska (I love Alexander Payne Light drama. It always good to watch and appreciate)6. Her (Unusual love story work for me. But academy hmmmmm)7. Inside Llewyn Davis (Joel & Ethan Coen will get nominated no matter what)8. American Hustle (O. Russell is a problem here. Can Rom. Comedy director make good fellas type film well. Maybe this film get slam like the counselor or maybe appreciated)9. August: Osage County (Interesting family drama and also oscar love great plays into movie)10. ?????????????????????????The movie i wish never make it and get rid of Lee Daniels' The Butler (BOOORINGGGG but oscar love boring)Saving Mr. Banks (For god sake have some mercy and get rid of it plzzzzzzzzzz)

Mostly agree with your choices, however: "O. Russell is a problem here. Can Rom. Comedy director make good fellas type film well"...what??David O.Russell also wrote and directed The Fighter, and Three Kings. I don't think he'll have a problem here. Guy is fantastic with ensemble pieces that challenge genre conventions, the guy is on a roll. Cast looks superb etc...
