"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Article Excerpt:

Will American Hustle win multiple acting nods?ICYMI we are starting a new tradition here at The Film Experience.亚博主页Though we usually gather a handful of prominent film bloggers to discuss the Oscar nominations in great detail (once they've had time to sink in),this year we're doing a mini-symposium before the nominations to discuss the always competitive situations surrounding the "just glad to be nominated"spot.Yesterday,Kurt Osenlund(The House Next Door),Nathaniel R(亚博主页,c'est moi),Christopher Rosen(Huffington Post),Sasha Stone(Awards Daily) andYou(in the comments) began with the supporting categories and who might rise should one of the expected five in each category falter at the finish line.(Though if you really think it over,isn't Nomination Morning really the starting gate?)

Where we left off yesterday: Sasha thought Robert Redford'sAll is Lostnomination would still be nominated,despite worries that the campaign faded too quickly and that if anyone fell for DiCaprio or Whitaker it'd be Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips.Christopher thought Leo wasn't happening due toWolf of Wall Streetbeing "Zero-Dark-Thirty'd".We had spent a lot of time agreeing but that ends,now.

CHRIS: I had always thought Whitaker would get in,simply because he's really great andLee Daniels' The Butlerseemed like a perfect Oscar movie,but that one just has not seemed to take.If Harvey getsThe Butlera Best Picture nod,I wouldn't be surprised to see Whitaker in there,probably at the expense of Hanks.But that's just crazy talk,sinceCaptain Phillipsis lined up as one of the strongest films in major categories.The Redford SAG snub was shocking,he hasn't really campaigned,and Bruce Dern has stolen away Redford's slam-dunk narrative for a win ...but I would still be stunned if Redford doesn't get a nomination.That said: Sasha's theory about Bale getting nominated as proof of the strength ofAmerican Hustleis a good one,but a more likely scenario for me is an Adams nomination forBest Actress.Either way,I think one of those lead performances gets a nod for that film,so if Bale winds up in,maybe he steals Redford's slot?

KURT: Hey all.Sorry for the silence on my end.I was out pretty late last night,braving the bitter streets of SoHo tucked into my coat,like a latter dayLlewyn Davis.On that note,I think it's absolutely criminal that Oscar Isaac won't be making it into ourBest Actor fivethis year,but I've pretty much accepted that reality,and I guess it's appropriate given the character's non-trajectory.
