10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

Sorry Nat I am off topic here. But you put so many posts it is impossible to follow just one. In regards of the BAFTAS nominations today. Is it too far off thinking TGBH could actually win the whole thing? Were the Oscar pundits disingenuos to not see this coming? I mean, no matter the beloved Wes Anderson at all (I love him, btw) but his is a film that speaks the language of AMPAS regardless of its quirkiness. WAR!, FACISM!(charicaturized Nazi bad guys!) NOSTALGIA FOR THE GOOD OL DAYS! And it's a period piece for heaven's sake! Didn't that happen with never the bride-always the bridesmaid Roman Polanski? What did he have to do to win that damn Oscar? Oh, I see...By the way, where in hell is Roberto Benigni doing now?

Wow. I feel like I laughed out loud a million times during this. haha love it. Keep it up everyone!!!

January 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterT-Bone

T-Bone really liked it!

I'm sorry, but this season has zero excitement. Nothing will top Boyhood's narrative.

"It's not a knock..."

Love ya Nick, but it totally is. But still awesome.

January 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterArkaan

I'm a proud member of the Begin Again Fan Club too.

January 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

This was a really fun one. Love all the Imitation Game puns and jokes, even if I did really like it. I'm Team Foxcatcher all the way.

January 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSad man

Nathaniel, you really need to watch Olive Kitteridge! It's brilliant.

January 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

Hmmm.... I would say The Grand Budapest Hotel script was pretty novelistic, more than Anderson's prior works which is saying something. I also like the Gone Girl script. I think Fincher and Flynn totally knew what movie they were making together.

January 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCMG

I think Nick's Big Hero 6 "Sometimes" has to be the winner.

January 9, 2015 | Unregistered Commentereurocheese

Yeah, I would definitely think of The Grand Budapest Hotel as a movie where the script is a big part of it. Chiefly, it has a lot of rapid-fire dialogue, packed with jokes, etc. (which is one of the things voters look for when they're looking at screenplays), but even beyond that it has a pretty intricate structure (even if people are, for obvious reasons, more focused on the intricacy of the production design). It feels like a very literate movie, if that makes sense.

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSean C.

You guys sure are fun to listen to (even if I don't always agree with what you're saying). I don't see Into the Woods winning Picture- Comedy/Musical, mainly because there are two films in that category with a Best Director nomination, and that is not one of them. Usually, when a film from that category gets a Best Director nomination, that's the one that wins (which this year, it's either Birdman or Grand Budapest). Same thing happens usually in the Drama category, the winner usually has a Best Director nomination, which is why I think it's either Boyhood or Selma (by the way, if Morten Tyldum couldn't even get a BAFTA nomination, I don't see him getting an Oscar nomination, though maybe DGA will save him). Anyway, just my two cents there (by the way, I saw Pride a few weeks ago and absolutely adored it, so that's a nomination that makes me happy, and I also think Keira Knightley should have gotten a nomination for Begin Again, especially with that weird of a lineup)...

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRichter Scale

@ Richter Scale,

BAFTA is BAFTA and your statement made me think of 2010. People were saying: Hooper won't win the Oscar. He failed to even win BAFTA. And he did win.

Actually I liked The Imitation Game. To me the real stinker in the race is The Theory of Everything. This wouldn't even win an Emmy!! HBO wouldn't even air that.

Happy Globes weekend!!!!!

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterZooey

Maybe Big Eyes is a mediocre song but they're just making up for Young and Beautiful ;(((( lol

I kinda want Julianne to win double Globes, but since Maps to the Stars hasn't even really come out it seems a bit unfair, so I think Emily will actually get it and she's the next most deserving. That category is such a mess tho. As long as Amy Adams doesn't win I'll be fine.

And I like that the Globes are so soon. I hated having to wait so long after the holidays. I like this tiny break and then jumping right in. I like that Oscar noms are earlier, so there's less influence from other places. And then we can more quickly jump into the actual film year. Idk, I like it.

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip H.

i realise ralph/rafe is just asking for it, but please pick just one version of fiennes

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterpar

Ooh, this was unexpected! I recall you mentioning there would be a Globes prediction podcast but Friday is a random day to be listening to TFE for me, usually a Sunday night tradition. A welcome interlude to my uneventful Friday night nonetheless. :)

Kinda hoping Julianne wins both Actress awards, the way Kate did in '08 at the Globes, if only to coronate Our Goddess even more. Hell, Maps hasn't come out yet but it's not like Emily Blunt was doing ~amazing~ work in ITW or anything so it can happen. Plus, it'll keep people on their toes for Maps and that's definitely a movie that deserves many discussions, especially Moore's role and performance in it.

Also kinda hoping Selma throws a wrench into the race by winning Drama Pic and Actor. Especially after the confusing BAFTA snub, this would be SO delicious just so everyone can throw their arms up with their predictions LOL.

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMark The First

Can't wait for the Globes! will Amy takes some jokes at Joaquin for having a crush on her? lol
I hope Adams win though.

and off topic, I just back-to-back watch Eleanor Rigby and Rabbit Hole, and boy, I'm drowning in tears now

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterfadhil

Sasha Stone is currently predicting Jennifer Aniston to win Drama Actress. Why, oh why, do I sense a Sandra Bullock-esque scenario again????????????

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGage Creed

Gage -- because Oscar hates 50something actresses as I've often stated. They also much prefer being surprised than to seeing genius be genius.

Mark -- wouldn't it jsut. That would be awesome. Then it might actually feel like a three way race for Oscar (provided SELMA gets the big nominations)

January 10, 2015 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

I'm sorta with Chofer. I still think it's Boyhood's to lose, but if anything can knock it off, I think it would almost have to be The Grand Budapest Hotel. It's the nominee with the broadest support aside from the presumed frontrunner.

Of course, to obtain enough momentum to take down Boyhood, it has to win tomorrow.

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterEvan

I think Felicity Jones is the potential spoiler. I realize that will get tomatoes thrown at me, but it's a very, very strong, if subtle performance and the others could cancel each other out.

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

fadhil, I just rewatched RH. Omg, Nicole and Dianne, what can I say.

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

Wow, you guys did not give JK Simmons enough credit here.

January 10, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterRob

"Sometimes it's the pundits we expect the least of". Literal LOL. I wish I could come up with that sort of line.

January 11, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTravis C

Well, since there is a threat of rain for the Globes, can we predict which man bun will frizz out first?
