The picture won’t because it has a Conservative theme, but “The King’s Speech” should be best picture.

hawkdriver on February 27, 2011 at 10:32 AM

I haven’t been to the movies for years, but the other day, I saw “The King’s Speech.” It was a rewarding experience, an excellent film in every way.

onlineanalyst on February 27, 2011 at 10:33 AM

Ha!

Can’t vote. Hate Hollywood. Haven’t seen a single movie on the list.

Thank you.

katy on February 27, 2011 at 10:34 AM

I haven’t seen a single one of these pictures. We did go see “The Grace Card” the other day to support Christian movies making.

Cindy Munford on February 27, 2011 at 10:37 AM

I’m sorry, IDGAS.

I like cinema, and I despise the circle-jerk of self-congratulatory awards shows.

You really ought to check out True Grit. I don’t much care about the other categories, but I’m really rooting for Hailee Steinfeld for best supporting actress. For her first movie role, she really knocked it out of the park.

Caiwyn on February 27, 2011 at 10:38 AM

Have seen none of them. Will see none of them.

I used to wait until they were released on TV to see movies, purely in order to reduce Hollywwod;s income.

Now, however, I don’t watch TV, either, except the ocassional spoting event, so I am not burdened with Hollywood blather ever.

Siddhartha Vicious on February 27, 2011 at 10:39 AM

hawkdriver on February 27, 2011 at 10:32 AM

Actually I could see that pulling off a Best Picture upset. The Social Network will almost assuredly win Best Director(Fincher is long overdue) and Best Adapted Screenplay(f’in Aaron Sorkin!), but it’s not gonna win any acting awards whereas King’s Speech is a lock for Best Actor and could win Best Supporting Actress.

If Social Network gets Best Picture, it’s gonna be a boring telecast. The only major category without a clear favorite is Best Supporting Actress. Call me crazy, but for some reason I keep thinking Annette Bening might pull off the upset of the night in the Best Actress category. Natalie Portman’s seemed like a lock for months, but the Academy voters have gotta be feeling bad for Bening considering the number of times she’s been nominated and lost(including to Hilary Swank the last 2 times).

I don’t get too wrapped up in the Oscars, but I would love to see that little girl Hailee Steinfeld win Best Actress in a Supporting Role. She was great.

As far as the pictures go, both “The King’s Speech” and “True Grit” were great period pieces. Both really immersed you in the era.

hawkdriver on February 27, 2011 at 10:47 AM

Black Swan is an embarrassment.

I’m wondering if the controversy over her being a lead actress in the supporting category might prevent her from getting a lot of votes.

Not all.

Look at Iron Man. That movie portrayed the US/private industry in a good light. It was a huge hit. The Fighter isn’t some propaganda piece, and neither was True Grit.

Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, and a whole plethora of others portray our military in a good light. Not every movie is some piece of propaganda.

I’m with Ann Coulter. Conservatives need to GO into Hollywood. Instead of running away from it, we should really try to have a greater influence in it.

Oh well, I guess I’ll have to skip the Oscars and rub lemon juice into my eyes instead; a far more preferable experience.

Bishop on February 27, 2011 at 11:11 AM

Notice how a movie like Iron Man is extremely successful, yet Jarhead, Lions for Lambs, and other left wing prop. movies fail miserably in theatres….

Hell, didn’t the Hurt Locker do great? Correct my memory if it’s wrong, but that movie wasn’t some George Soros influenced piece.

Not true. Take a look at the 10(10?!) Best Picture nominees. Other than The Kids Are All Right which focuses on a lesbian couple, what other film on that list could possibly offend social conservatives?

I’m not saying Hollywood doesn’t produce its share of offensive, ultraleft propaganda(Avatar, anyone?), but at the same time it’s unfair to write off all of their movies as being as bad as James Cameron’s smurffest.

There is no way that Hailee is a “supporting” actress. She was in every scene. I hate when they monkey with the category definitions to secure a win.

TRUE GRIT
KING’S SPEECH
THE FIGHTER

John the Libertarian on February 27, 2011 at 11:17 AM

I may see The King’s Speech if it comes to the dollar theater as a second-run film. I haven’t watched any award show in years. Nobody spends more time and money congratulating themselves than the entertainment industry. Nobody considers themselves more indespensable, yet nobody is more easily replaced. The “next big star” is always one PR flack’s fluff piece away.

John the Libertarian on February 27, 2011 at 11:17 AM

I guess the producers figured because she’s just a kid, the Academy would never give her Best Actress. It’s not unprecedented. Al Pacino was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in The Godfather. Granted, he wasn’t seen much in the first hour, but he clearly had the biggest role in the movie. And on the flipside, Anthony Hopkins won Best Actor for Silence of the Lambs and he didn’t even have a half-hour’s worth of screentime.

beatcanvas on February 27, 2011 at 11:23 AM

No one should win. They should cancel the show.

I agree with the late French philosopher Simone Weil that “all awards are a degradation.” Beyond that, if these people were truly principled artists, i.e., humanists of actual integrity, they would abjure this showy and expensive display of self-congratulatory excess and contribute the production costs to the cause of global warming.

Cindy Munford on February 27, 2011 at 11:21 AM

It’s got a few moments that made me squeamish. But this is Aronofsky we’re talking about here. Almost all of his movies are like that. The Wrestler wasn’t too bad. Aside from Mickey Rourke blading himself as wrestlers often do in the ring, nothing in that movie made me uncomfortable. But Pi and Requiem For a Dream were really nasty at times. In fact as great as Requiem was(I think it should be required viewing for every American teenager), I never wanna see it again. That’s how powerful and sick some of the scenes were.

I don’t go to the movie theater but once in a great while. I barely even watch any broadcast television. I most often wait for movies that I would care to see to come out on blu-ray and I watch them at home. Even that is too much support though. But, I do enjoy a great story movie now and again.

‘Hollywood’ is a pit of miscreant reprobate vipers. Their pathetic self-aggrandizing awards are… meaningless.

beatcanvas on February 27, 2011 at 11:50 AM

True Grit was excellent as a film, especially a remake.

Bridges was really quite the character, but King’s Speech will take that category I feel. Just the wrong year to try and win it with a British flick done so well.

Natalie Portman will win for Black Swan and should. She was phenomenal. Her portrayal as a schizophrenic/nervous breakdown inducing dancer was unreal. The dance scenes were seamless.

Some of you ought to get out more and stop worrying about a Caliphate that isn’t coming.

katy on February 27, 2011 at 11:57 AM

Yeah ITA when it comes to Best Actor/Actress and Supporting Role, I look at the preparation that actor/actress had to achieve in order to perform as close to character as possible.

That’s why I am rooting for Natalie Portman. I have to admit I haven’t seen clips, but I will now that I am commenting on it. Read a review from an ex-ballet dancer and on that movie review she brought forth that Portman’s body (except for a minor spinal curve) made her looking as close to perfection as a ballerina can be. Haven’t seen the nasty stuff but from what I’ve read, that effect is what makes a performance profound. Not just shoot laser guns in a “Star Wars” series flick.

Colin Firth, well…I am more biased with him! Nanny McPhee, and other movies I have seen him-he blends in so well, you forget that it’s him.

hawkdriver on February 27, 2011 at 11:26 AM

Nah, I work for a school district I’m almost embarrassed to say. But at least it’s in Texas where there are no unions.

A few years back when I had more spare time(before being married with a kid and a mortgage), I was a big film buff. But I can hardly find the time to watch a 2 hour movie these days. The “good” news is that Hollywood produces so much drivel now that I don’t even care if I’m limited to seeing 5-10 new releases every year. Seriously, is there ANYTHING coming out this summer that looks remotely interesting?

Doughboy on February 27, 2011 at 12:12 PM

Black Swan is not good. Like a high budget LifeTime movie, and Natalie Portman is plain annoying on all levels. Mila Kunis and Barbara Hershey were the only interesting parts of the movie. Annette Benning should win for The Kid’s Are Alright.
Colin Firth is wonderful in The KIng’s Speech, and The KIng’s Speech should win Best Picture. However, James Franco delivers a more intense and gripping performance in 127 hours.
Christian Bale and Melissa Leo were terrific in The Fighter. Defiantely should win.
Inception is not as exciting as billed, and The Social Network was good, not great.
True Grit was very enjoyable, Winter’s Bone and Blue Valentine, depressing.

JP1986UM on February 27, 2011 at 11:54 AM

She’s been Oscar material since The Professional when she was like what, 14? Raw talent. She’s also great in Closer.

I agree that Hollywood has a silly, offensive view of Conservative Americans and it’s unfortunate. Solution: hell yeah us right wingers should fight for a piece of that pie. It’s a powerful way of reaching to people. My son’s interested in Architecture and Film. I’d love for him to go to NYU and pursue a career like Spike Lee, but this guy’s gonna be… surprise, surprise, a man that loves and speaks shamelessly and proudly of his country. Not bothering with the Oscars–I’d rather stick with their fake on-screen characters. Wouldn’t surprise me to see some of them wearing orange in solidarity tonight. lol

Seriously, is there ANYTHING coming out this summer that looks remotely interesting?

This is a clip that illustrates all the prep that Natalie Portman went through.

Other than The Kids Are All Right which focuses on a lesbian couple

Uh-oh. Expect it to carry away every win that it’s nominated for.

James Franco is a method actor. Wow when they prep method actors go 24/7 into character. He had a role as a drug addict and all interviews and pics he did look totally drugged. Even people questioned if he was really losing it.

Ann Coulter spoke at my university about three years ago, and went on in a part of her speech about how conservatives need to ditch the law school BS and get into culture, cinema, and hollywood.

She’s right. Any and all kind of media. Conservative actors, directors, producers and even personalities should put some of their money towards the creation of scholarships, programs, production companies, etc. into talent that could make this happen.

Did you see him on The Sixth Sense? I did not recognize him AT-ALL!

“Old Man’s War” was recently sold for movie rights, now if they don’t eff that up it will be great; the book was phenomenal.

How sad is it, that even though I hold a degree in Film and screenwriting, I have no interest in Hollywood anymore? Even less in the Oscars…

And a movie theater used to be a sort of Church to me – a place for reverence and joy.

*sigh* I miss those years…
