BSC on Oscar Nominated Movies
It’s Oscar weekend, and while all the nominations have been out for a month, maybe you’re just getting around to looking at them in preparation for the big Academy Awards party you’ve been invited to attend. We here at BSC have covered most–though by no means all–of the movies garnering nominations this year. I’ve got a run-down for you of our reviews of the various 2010 films worth voting on.
Two reviews for you on The Social Network, which is only appropriate for one of the two third-most-nominated films of the year that have 8 each. Nominated for Best Actor in a leading role (Jesse Eisenberg), Cinematography, Directing, Film Editing, Original Score, Sound Mixing, Adapted Screenplay, and Best Picture. The Social Network (BSCreview) and The Social Network at BSCkids.
The Town has Jeremy Renner nominated for Actor in a supporting role.
Toy Story 3 is sitting pretty with 5 nominations: Animated Feature, Original Song, Sound Editing, Adapted Screenplay, Best Picture.
There was one nomination for Hereafter, Visual Effects
Tangled (review also from BSCkids) is nominated for Best Original Song.
Another with just one nomination–Sound Editing for Tron Legacy.
The Black Swan is another of the heavily nominated movies and my pick for Best Picture (what I think should win, not what I think will win), and in my opinion the voting is a joke if Natalie Portman does not get Best Actress in a leading role. Also nominated for Directing, Cinematography, and Film Editing, in all of which it could be a major contender.
Danny Boyle continues his run of Best Picture nominations with 127 Hours. Up for six awards total, the others being Film Editing, Original Score, Original Song, Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor in a leading role (James Franco).
True Grit is the second-most-nominated movie with 10 opportunities for picking up a statue. Adapted Screenplay, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Costume Design, Cinematography, Art Direction, Best Actor in a leading role (Jeff Bridges), Best Actress in a supporting role (Hailee Steinfeld–who should win because she was awesome in this film), Directing, and Best Picture.
Inception is the other third-most-nominated movie this year, tying the Social Network with 8 nods: Art Direction, Cinematography, Original Score, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Original Screenplay, and Best Picture.
Winter’s Bone has four nominations. John Hawkes for Actor in a supporting role, Jennifer Lawrence for Actress in a leading role, Adapted Screenplay, and Best Picture
Restrepo is nominated for Best Documentary Feature and might win, though I don’t think it should.
Animal Kingdom‘s Jacki Weaver is up for Best Actress in a supporting role.
Michelle Williams is up for Best Actress in a leading role for Blue Valentine.
And finally the most nominated movie of this year, The King’s Speech. It’s up for 12: Art Direction, Cinematography, Costume Design, Directing, Film Editing, Original Score, Sound Mixing, Original Screenplay, Best Actor in a leading role (Colin Firth), Best Actor in a supporting role (Geoffrey Rush), Best Actress in a supporting role (Helena Bonham Carter), and Best Picture. I’m not sure that it will sweep but the buzz about this movie is strong and gaining momentum going into this weekend.
