COMMENT(s) DU JOUR
NEW HONORARY OSCARS
Maureen O'Hara & Harry Belafonte

"This complete's Harry Belafonte's EGOT! Sure it's an honorary Oscar, but to quote Whoopi on this topic (on 30 Rock): "It still counts! Girl's gotta eat!- Charles

"It's time for the AMPAS to look hard at the 70's and 80's for indelible contributions. No need to wait til some of these ladies are 94.- Hayden

 "What I wish they would do is an hour long special devoted to the four recipients. They could show clips and have edited interviews with the honorees. Then it could be shown on PBS or TCM or something." - Dave

Sexpot of the Year

SKYFALL 

Whether Dean is breaking hearts (including his own), shaking his body feverishly in Mexico, or relaying the fine details of an orgy, he's mesmerizing.

Sal Paradise speaks for us all when he confessses: "I think of Dean Moriarty. I think of Dean Moriarty. I think of Dean... Moriarty."

tba

We first meet her in longshot, all nonchalant about a killing shot beside her. Is she a lethal beauty or a damsel in distress? Her smooth outer beauty barely masks a deep inner terror suggesing the act of skating on dangerously thin ice that's cracking loudly underneath your feet. 

Bond doesn't care. He's all ready to drown.

Best Poster Design

BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
GAYBY
HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE
MOONRISE KINGDOM
THE PAPERBOY
A startlingly weird but familiar (sparkler) image. Hushpuppy running toward you with the movie's audacious high spirits
A fun distillation of mood, character (one of the protagonists is an artist), concept and comic tone
It's tough to beat graphically bold images that capture the spirit of a subject. Think how well this pairs with "Silence = Death"
Tasked with a difficult sell, delicate childhood spirit, fable-like settings alive with possibility, the poster designer aced it.

Other films have tried this pulpy paperback novel approach but it's truly fitting here. Great color palette and mood.

 

Finalists: Anna Karenina (selling the artifice beautifully), Cabin in the Woods (clever and intriguing), Django Unchained (bold red teaser),The Master (bottle teaser), Holy Motors (glowing eyes)
Semi-Finalists:
beautiful simplicity in Life of Pi (tiger head); Les Miz (original logo and live action cosette); Wreck-It Ralph
