I Should Probably Post These Oscar Nominations, Then

OSCARS-2013

Seeing as everyone was a little Oscar’d out yesterday, I thought I’d wait until today to put these up. I’m not going to say too much, as I think I exhausted my point over on Twitter (@iamnotwaynegale) and said everything I wanted to when predicting my nominations here.

‘Snubs’ aside, all I’ll say is that I’m absolutely thrilled for Benh Zeitlin and little Quvenzhané and really pleased Eiko Ishioka gets a fitting tribute.

Now, I’m sure you’re pretty sick and tired of hearing peoples’ two cents on today’s BAFTA nominations and how they might correlate with tomorrow’s (well, today now) Oscar nominations, yadda yadda, blah blah blahhh.

So I’m simply going to post the list of nominations below with no preamble. That can come with whatever tomorrow’s Academy Award nominations bring!

2012 Houston Film Critics Society Nominations

Houston, you’re so boring. Apart from including Cloud Atlas, Naomi Watts, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem and the wonderful Matthew McConaughey, I guess. But maybe I’m just bitter because you nominated Anna Karenina for Worst Film of 2012.

2012 Satellite Award Nominations

Well this is a bit more fun.

Yes, all the familiar faces are here, but the Satellite nominations are peppered with some rather more exciting choices in the form of Emilie Dequenne, Samantha Barks and Eddie Redmayne. Whether this is set to be one of a small selection of nominations for the actors is yet to be seen, as is whether The International Press Academy will favour their more obscure choices over the current frontrunners. Either way, it makes an interesting read and it’s exciting to see Les Mis leading the way when there’s only just over a month to wait for us UK folk, now.

The winners will be announced on December 16th, so check out the full list of nominations below, minus all the TV stuff: Continue reading

Review: Real Steel (2011)

DIRECTOR: Shawn Levy.

CAST: Hugh Jackman, Dakota Goyo, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Anthony Mackie, Hope Davis, Olga Fonda, Karl Yune, James Rebhorn.

SYNOPSIS: Tired of watching humans fight, impressive robots are built to battle each other in the ring and shipped all over the world for competitions. Some, however, fight in the dirt and their owners have to drive day after day to find the nearest fight. Charlie Kenton (Jackman) is struggling to find enough money from these small fights to keep the debt collectors away. But when his 11-year-old son Max (Goyo) turns up after unexpected circumstances, the two of them find Atom, a robot who may give them a chance to both rebuild their relationship and reform the sport.

If you walk out of Real Steel without a smile on your face, there’s something fundamentally wrong with you. Better than you probably think, Real Steel once again shows us that even when he plays it effortless with Charlie Kenton, Hugh Jackman sells. Continue reading
