The Motion Picture Sound Editors announced their nominations today for their Golden Reel Awards.
Funny, I thought they were announcing after Oscar nominations. I guessed they bumped them up to add extra intrigue or something. Which makes sense, even though nominations have been decided from a week ago. But now all the guilds are in, so that’s good. Allows us to guess a little better.
Here are your MPSE Nominations:
Best Sound Editing: Sound Effects and Foley
All Is Lost
Fast & Furious
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Iron Man 3
Lone Survivor (more…)
On the eve of the 2013 Oscar nominations come the 2013 Razzie nominations.
Only fitting. That whole ‘darkest before the dawn’ thing.
Anyway, I don’t care about these at all, but they are amusing, so here we go:
Grown Ups 2
The Lone Ranger
A Madea Christmas
Movie 43 (more…)
Tomorrow, we’ll know the nominees for the 86th Academy Awards.
Today, I’m going to guess what those nominees will be. This is my favorite part. Even more so than who’s going to win. Because who’s going to win is usually set. You can narrow it down to two choices, most of the time. Here, everything’s wide open. There can be loads of surprises. This is where you get to mold the clay into all the art projects, and then the Oscars are just awarding first prize. This is way more fun to guess. It’s like trying to guess what the NFL schedule is going to be before it’s announced, and before we all try to pick who’s going to win the games. It’s so much fun.
This year especially, I’m way out of touch with stuff. I didn’t even see any of the movies until September. I watched everything in the span of four months. So I’m mostly going on instinct and the guilds. And just sheer, “What the hell?” It should be fun.
The last thing to note — yesterday, I picked what I’d nominate. Today, I’m purely going by what I think is going to happen. I feel like this must be made clear every year, because there are a lot of stupid people on the internet who just don’t like to read things and like to come to conclusions and say stupid things without maybe seeing if they’re wrong first.
So here are my guesses as to what I think will be nominated tomorrow morning: (more…)
