Oscar Commentary the day after the storm:

The race has officially begun, I haven't been watching TV so I'm unaware of which films are already having "X Oscar nominations..." commercials, I'm sure that has already started. Been thinking long and hard about Best Actress in particular. Charlize is pretty much a lock, but there is one, a small one, who could possibly take her down....Keisha Castle-Hughes. Consider this, Keisha was being pushed for supporting, screeners were sent out, and yesterday AMPAS nominates her in LEAD. Scarlett Johansson was pushed in the wrong category as well, and where is she? How did this happen? This indicates HUGE support for Keisha, huge. AMPAS members apparently adore her and several have publicly stated their support for her to win the award...I've been told the following members are voting Hughes:
Michael Douglas
Julia Roberts
Clint Eastwood
Billy Crystal

Yeah, it's 4 out of nearly 6000, but think about it, support is building. Campaigning for Charlize and Keisha will be so critical these next few weeks, Charlize needs to make sure she doesn't run into overkill territory, on the flipside, Keisha needs to get on EVERY FUCKING TV Show she can and talk about the film and her nomination, if the next couple of weeks indicate a shift in the Best Actress race, mark my words, it will shift to Keisha. Now, I still want Charlize to bag the thing, this is just a little FYC :)

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King is still the favorite to take home the big prize, and Jackson still the favorite for director, yes...but are they locks? Not necessarily. If yesterday's nominations said anything, they said that this year's seemingly predictable race, well, isn't so black and white. This year is truly the first of its kind at the Oscars in a way, but it also recalls the heyday of Oscar back when films like Midnight Cowboy walked home with Best Picture statues. I mean, look, CITY OF GOD is nominated for DIRECTOR and 3 other pretty major categories. CITY OF GOD! The same picture that *allegedly* was SHUT OUT of foreign language film last year because AMPAS members were "walking out of screenings." Hmm, so the same body of people that shut it out last year in foreign language, plus a few new members (last year's first time nominees) minus a couple members (members who died), come to nominate the picture in 4 significant categories including Best Director, putting director Fernando Meirelles up against legends like Clint Eastwood and Peter Weir. It is truly a mad, mad, mad, mad world! It makes me wonder how close City of God was to a Best Picture nomination! If only AMPAS still released their voting tallies... Anyway, at this point it's way to early to start throwing around too many wild speculative upset possibilities, we really need to see how this first week in particular shakes out...fuck it I'm not stopping. Best Picture, as of now, is going to Return of the King, but what has the potential to gain the momentum to pull off that upset? Well, Mystic River and Master and Commander are going into re-release, Mystic River has already begun its rollout, back on 1327 screens, whilst Master and Commander is back on 850 screens this weekend. Both carry huge AMPAS clout, namely in their directors, Clint Eastwood and Peter Weir, respectively. Peter Weir is potentially this year's Roman Polanski, he's well-respected in the directing community and is long overdue. Clint is Clint, and is always a threat, I think Peter Weir poses a larger one at this point though. Master and Commander has momentum to build, that's for sure, but it has a pretty big shot at a director win. Still, Peter Jackson will probably walk home with the statue and will definitely deserve it. Sofia Coppola and Fernando Meirelles (who publicly stated that he would vote for PJ if he was an AMPAS member :) ) have huge uphill battles to fight if they are to win the director prize, but neither can be counted out yet either.

I haven't checked the trades much today, as I was in a car accident last nite and feel a bit out of it, but I'll look into the FYC campaigns that have surely already begun in those publications. I'm actually feeling a bit lightheaded now so commentary will continue later in the night, I'll pick up where I've left off here.

I'll leave you, for now, with this, if there's one thing to know about the Oscars, it's that there is no such thing as a lock. This year's race is no exception, and this race is wide open and is only beginning...stay tuned.

My man is making sweet toons of AICN chatters...YOU MIGHT BE NEXT!

Big Fish has been shat upon by a dog biscuit
I cannot believe BIG FISH did not get nominated (for things like Best Picture/Director). Seabiscuit is NOTHING, and I repeat for emphasis NOTHING compared to Big Fish. Tim Burton has set in the darkness long enough, he has earned recognition, yet the academy decides to overlook his brilliance. I refuse to believe a dog food is nominated, and Big Fish was left in the dust. That is SHIT. Shame on the academy. FOR SHAME! I’ve said it once and I will say it again, the academy can eat my seabiscuits.

Oscar Nominations Commentary:

Well, there were definitely some surprises to behold this morning. Keisha Castle-Hughes is now the youngest Best Actress nominee in history at age 13, City of God got several top category nominations including Best Director, Focus Features' fumbled campaign for Scarlett Johansson as a supporting actress cost her a nomination, Harvey Weinstein was shut out of a Best Picture nomination for Cold Mountain, to name a few. First up is a category-by-category commentary of this morning's nominations:

Best Motion Picture of the Year
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
Lost in Translation
Master & Commander: Far Side of the World
Mystic River

Commentary: Return of the King and Mystic River surprises nobody really, the great victories here come for Universal, who ran a shameless campaign for the little horse that could, Seabiscuit; Huge accomplishment for Fox getting Master and Commander nomination, and an accomplishment I'm extremely happy with, a very deserving film; and last, but certainly NOT least, Lost in Translation made the cut for Focus, bravo! Sofia Coppola's little gem making the cut speaks volumes about the new schedule making the voting more about the movies than the campaigns!

Achievement in Directing
Fernando Meirelles, City of God
Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
Sofia Coppola, Lost in Translation
Peter Weir, Master and Commander
Clint Eastwood, Mystic River

Commentary: For me, the biggest shock came here, and it was a very pleasant one, Fernando Meirelles has been nominated for his brilliant City of God! City of God is a masterfully crafted film and is a stunning achievement, this nomination is well deserved. Sofia Coppola has become the first American woman in history to be nominated for Director, only the third woman to ever be nominated for the prize. PJ absolutely deserves his nomination, nobody questions that one. A hero of mine, Peter Weir, is nominated for what I think is the most accomplished film technically and directorally, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (PJ's Return of the King obviously would be the other stunning technical achievement). And few would argue that Clint Eastwood richly deserves his nomination for his masterpiece, Mystic River.

Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role
Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean
Ben Kingsley, House of Sand & Fog
Jude Law, Cold Mountain
Bill Murray, Lost in Translation
Sean Penn, Mystic River

Commentary: Another sign that academy voters really voted with their hearts this year, Johnny Depp has made the cut for his work in Pirates of the Caribbean! Kingsley is a force to be reckoned with, as always, in House of Sand and Fog and nobody doubted he'd land here. I thought Jude Law would be overlooked, for it is a truly understated performance, a brilliant one, but very understated, his nomination makes me happy. Bill Murray is a genius, I love him, always have and always will, and his nomination is a gift to him and all his fans, absolutely deserving. Sean Penn is THE force, he is it, nobody doubted it, and he should go on to win the award, Jimmy Markum is a performance for the ages.

Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role
Alec Baldwin, The Cooler
Benecio Del Toro, 21 Grams
Djimon Hounsou, In America
Tim Robbins, Mystic River
Ken Watanabe, The Last Samurai

Commentary: Alec Baldwin picked up steam in the last month and secured a nomination, well done Lion's Gate! Benicio Del Toro is a great choice, I feared he'd be overlooked, it is a powerful performance from one of the best actors of his generation. Djimon Hounsou's nomination overjoys me, the film got overlooked, but I expected to be letdown in that regard, so happy for Djimon. Tim Robbins gave his best performance ever in Mystic River and should walk home with a statue on Oscar night. Ken Watanabe is one of the only nominations The Last Samurai bagged, a good performance, well done.

Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role
Keisha Castle-Hughes, Whale Rider
Diane Keaton, Something's Gotta Give
Samantha Morton, In America
Charlize Theron, Monster
Naomi Watts, 21 Grams

Commentary: One of the other HUGE shockers here, and a testament to the power of screeners I'd argue, Keisha Castle-Hughes, at age 13, became the youngest Best Actress nominee in history. I haven't seen the film, but it's a huge achievement for this small film. Diane Keaton was a lock for nomination from the start. Samantha Morton's nomination puts a smile on my face, more love for In America, richly deserved. Anyone who has seen Monster will agree, Charlize Theron is unstoppable, and absolutely deserves not only the nomination, but deserves her Oscar right this minute. Naomi Watts got snubbed in 2001 of a nomination for Mulholland Drive, and I'm glad to see her nominated for her work in 21 Grams.

Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role
Shohreh Aghdashloo, House of Sand & Fog
Patricia Clarkson, Pieces of April
Marcia Gay Harden, Mystic River
Holly Hunter, Thirteen
Renee Zellweger, Cold Mountain

Commentary: Shoreh Aghdashloo did it, all herself, not Dreamworks, the sheer beauty and delicacy of her performance in House of Sand and Fog resulted in a completely deserving nomination for her. She could even be the surprise winner on Oscar night, watch out for her! Patricia Clarkson got a huge boost from SAG and I'm sure screeners helped as well for her nomination for Pieces of April, well done. Marcia Gay Harden did great work in Mystic River and her nomination is no surprise. Renee Zellweger has been the favorite to win for quite a while, but I'm thinking everybody will be surprised in this category when that ballot is read on February 29th, it may not be Shoreh, but I don't think it will be Renee. Holly Hunter completely deserves her nomination for Thirteen, to me she was the heart of the movie, and her performance moved me the most.

Best Animated Feature Film of the Year
Brother Bear
Finding Nemo
Triplettes de Belleville

Commentary: This is a two-way race between Finding Nemo and The Triplettes de Bellville. Everyone thinks Finding Nemo is a lock, I am not so sure, Triplettes was a HUGE hit at Cannes this year and is a favorite with a lot of critics, right now Triplettes is my prediction for the win. Brother Bear is happy just to be nominated, it doesn't stand a chance.

Best Foreign Language Film of the Year
Barbarian Invasions (Canada)
Evil (Sweden)
The Twilight Samurai (Japan)
Twin Sisters (Netherlands)
Zelary (Czech Republic)

Commentary: I haven't seen any of the films, I'll be rooting for Barbarian Invasions to support Canadian film, but the nominations for the Czechs and the Swedes are the big accomplishments here.

Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published
Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini, American Splendor
BrĂ¡ulio Mantovani, City of God
Fran Walsh & Philippa Boyens & Peter Jackson, Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Brian Helgeland, Mystic River
Gary Ross, Seabiscuit

Commentary: Another nomination as a result of screeners, American Splendor, a wonderful adaptation, made the cut. City of God's nomination is absolutely earned and, as I said before, it's another example of the movies winning over politics. Return of the King is no surprise of course, neither is Mystic River. Seabiscuit, I feel, is completely undeserving (here as well as in Picture, but moreso here), the adaptation didn't do the story its full justice, but Seabiscuit's nomination isn't a surprise, the academy really loved the movie, at least they voted with their hearts.

Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen
Denis Arcand, Barbarian Invasions
Steven Knight, Dirty Pretty Things
Andrew Stanton, Bob Peterson, David Reynolds, Finding Nemo
Jim Sheridan & Naomi Sheridan & Kirsten Sheridan, In America
Sofia Coppola, Lost in Translation

Commentary: A couple surprises here, Barbarian Invasions and Dirty Pretty Things should be extremely happy to be nominated, well done there. Finding Nemo is a bit surprising, not completely out of left field though. In America deserves to win, glad to see it nominated. Sofia is probably the favorite here and definitely deserves to be nominated.

Achievement in Art Direction
Girl with a Pearl Earring
The Last Samurai
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World

Commentary: Girl with a Pearl Earring built its momentum slowly but surely this past month and landed a nomination, good job. The Last Samurai deserves its credit here, as does Return of the King. Master and Commander seems like the big movie that could, if that makes sense, glad to see a nomination here. Seabiscuit really did it for the academy, I knew it would probably get in here but it still feels a bit surprising.

Achievement in Cinematography
City of God
Cold Mountain
Girl with a Pearl Earring
Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World

Commentary: City of God again, beautiful! Cold Mountain is a beautifully shot movie and earned this nomination. Girl with a Pearl Earring I haven't seen, but it looks pretty lush. Master and Commander, as I said before, is a breathtaking technical achievement, and deserves this nomination and maybe the win. Seabiscuit has done it again, the cinematography was good but I don't know if it was one of the five best of the year.

Achievement in Costume Design
Girl with a Pearl Earring
The Last Samurai
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World

Commentary: Girl again, no surprise here really. The Last Samurai was destined to be nominated here. Good to see Return of the King again here. Master and Commander again, I thought it might get shut out in costumes, glad to see it made it. Seabiscuit for costumes? Man that horse is good.

Best Documentary Feature
Capturing the Friedmans
The Fog of War
My Architect
The Weather Underground

Commentary: I haven't seen one yet, I'm very happy Errol Morris is being recognized for The Fog of War, he's a genius. Capturing the Friedmans will probably win this, and is the doc I'm most excited to see. I'd say this is a race between the Friedmans, Fog of War, and My Architect which was a big film festival favorite.

Best Documentary Short Subject
Chernobyl Heart
Ferry Tales

Commentary: Who the hell knows? All I can say is...well done guys!

Achievement in Film Editing
City of God
Cold Mountain
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World

Commentary: All these City of God nominations just makes me want to dance, absolutely deserves its nomination here. Cold Mountain is no surprise, Walter Murch is a force with the editing community. Return of the King is completely deserving of course. Master and Commander, what more can be said, technically sound in all departments, including editing, well done. Seabiscuit, by a nose baby, by a nose.

Achievement in Makeup
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Commentary: Hey look, AMPAS nominated THREE this year, a RACE this time, a competition, how exciting! All deserving nominees, though I would have liked to see Monster in here rather than Pirates. Let the race begin!

Achievement in Music in Connection with Motion Pictures (Original song)
"Into the West" - Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
"A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow" - A Mighty Wind
"Scarlet Tide" - Cold Mountain
"The Triplets of Belleville" - The Triplets of Belleville
"You Will Be My Ain True Love" - Cold Mountain

Commentary: The big surprises here are Mighty Wind and Triplettes de Bellville, could one of them steal it from Annie Lennox? Doubtful, but with AMPAS you never know. Cold Mountain doesn't stand a chance here with two nominations, the nominations are the prize.

Achievement in Music in Connection with Motion Pictures (Score)
Big Fish
Cold Mountain
Finding Nemo
House of Sand & Fog
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Commentary: Danny Elfman is the man, power to him on his nomination here. Cold Mountain is a score I really like, well done Gabriel. Finding Nemo isn't a surprise, I don't think it belongs here though. Glad to see Horner nominated for House of Sand and Fog, an almost invisible yet affecting score. Howard Shore's score to Return of the King is fantastic, as is his work on the whole trilogy.

Best Animated Short Film
gone Nutty
Harvie Krumpet

Commentary: ...Well done! There's a nominee called Nibbles!

Best Live Action Short Film
Die Rote Jacke (The Red Jacket)
Most (The Bridge)
(A) Torzija ([A] Torsion)
Two Soldiers

Commentary: SQUASH, yes darling!

Achievement in Sound
The Last Samurai
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Commentary: Seabiscuit is the only real surprise here, that darn horse! I'd say this is between Return of the King and Master and Commander, the two technical masterpieces.

Achievement in Sound Editing
Finding Nemo
Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Commentary: AMPAS rule #152.5, if Pixar animates a film and puts sound to it, we nominate. No surprise there, Master and Commander is a big duh of course and Pirates is no surprise either. Master and Commander should get it, but it could go to Nemo.

Achievement in Visual Effects
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Achievement in Visual Effects
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Commentary: Double WETA city, well done! All three had fantastic visual effects, I think King probably has this one wrapped up though. WETA WETA WETA

Final Commentary:
While I don't agree with all the choices, who ever does? I think everybody should be happy this year, it seems like the start of a new way of voting for AMPAS. I hope the new schedule is here to stay, I'm sure it is, and hopefully the studios will realize that they can't win simply by running the right campaign anymore, the films count too (of course a proper campaign still must be run *cough*SCARLETT*cough*). That is not a pot-shot to Harvey Weinstein, I think Cold Mountain is a very good film, but I do agree that it is not one of the five best of the year. Don't think Weinstein is down and out now, he produces quality material most of the time, and I look forward to what he has to offer in the future. That said, some small films got recognition, which is fantastic, the one I wanted more than anything didn't make it, but like I said, I'm happy with the way AMPAS voted. We can't win'm all can we? I'll provide more commentary, more regularly, from now right on through the day after the Oscars (I used to run a website, now I have NeurOTrash, amen baby!). Everything hasn't completely sunk in yet, so maybe more later, for now, go see those films nominated that you haven't had a chance to see yet!

What This Blind Man Saw When He Touched the Elephant

I suppose that Gus Van Sant named his latest film Elephant because of the parable about the blind men and the elephant. All three blind men felt the same animal, but had vastly different impressions of what it was, based only on their proximity and perceptions.
Elephant is built around the perceptions of a very different group of students on the day two of their classmates go on a Columbine-esque killing spree in the halls. It's nonlinear, so you get a grasp of each student's perception of the event. But, unlike the three blind men, none of these observers is ever asked to comment on the tragic events they witness or fall prey to.
Using a cast of unknowns, Van Sant has created a movie so real, it feels like an actual document of a tragedy. There is only one false note in the entire movie, and it's easily overlooked: Van Sant intimates that the two killers might be gay. Why? Because the kids are picked on and called fags, so they simply must be.
The film is shot simply and elegantly, with the camera following the kids around the school as they walk blindly into fate. The music is mainly a lone piano. The tight framing and simple soundtrack create and intimacy and immediacy that pays off when the shooting starts. You feel you know these kids, even the cyphers pulling the trigger. You may not understand their motives. You may not sympathise with the victims. But, they feel like real people that you know.
It's been a long damn time since I was in high school. Thankfully, though I was a geek and a dork and a hundred other adjectives, I was accepted by the cool kids. I had friends. I was loved. I really cannot relate to the rage and emotional vacancy that could cause someone to go on a killing spree. I don't know what I would do in the situation that someone pointed a gun in my face now, even though it's happened in the past. I've come to a period in my life where violence is not only anethema to me, it can actually shock me.
The violence in Elephant is shocking. Not so much by the gore, or splatters of blood, but by the utter desolation of the individuals committing the violence. They just do not care about their fellow man. At all.
The thought that we might have raised a generation that empty scares me.
Yes, I realize it's just a fucking movie. And yes, I realize it's just a step away from being one of those "ripped from the headlines" NBC movies. But, the difference is, the NBC movie would take sides. It would portray one of the killers as a raving lunatic and the other as his reluctant cohort. It would show how one guy's parents abused him or something. If it couldn't show them as utterly fucking evil, it would make excuses.
You get no such luxury with Elephant. It just...happens. And you have to deal with it. Much like life.
It's a powerful damn movie, and if it screens in your town, I implore you to check it out.

More Big Fish Goodness!

Two words, two little words...BIG FISH. I love the tagline, "An adventure as big as life itself." and what an adventure it was. This movie IS remarkable. Tim Burton's finest hour and 50 minutes. After I walked out of the theatre, I felt a sudden burst of energy, the kind of energy that made me want to reach for a goal that I think is beyond my reach. I truly felt motivated by this stunning slice of art. I felt a release, my heart kept saying, “You can do anything you set your mind to.” I’d like to apologize for my fountain of GUSH. I know I say, “This movie does it for me,” and everytime I say that, I truly mean it, from the depths of my soul. Wait for it…wait for it, and here I go, this movie did it for me! For me, those two little words made a big impact.

I suggest you go out and see this movie immediately, if you do not, you are depriving yourself of a beautiful film.

My Big Fish Story...

I truly believe that our wealth and our worth is determined not by the amount of cash we accumulate, not by the stuff we collect (though, lord knows I have a lot of stuff), but by the lives we touch.
If that's the case, Big Fish's Edward Bloom is one of the richest men to walk the earth. We first meet him as he tells the story of catching the uncatchable, legendary fish called The Beast on they day his son was born. Edward is a storyteller, with a yarn for every occasion. He's a romantic and a dreamer, and he's led a life that can only be called legendary...that is, if you believe a word he says.
His son, Will, doesn't understand his dad. Will hasn't spoken to his father for three years, is about to become a father himself, and finds out that his dad is dying. He's tired of the fish stories and tall tales. He just wants the truth. He wants to know who his father really is.
So goes the plot of Tim Burton's latest movie, an imaginative, fun, joyous celebration of life. Bloom's stories paint a larger than life picture of a man who has led an impossible existance. He's befriended giants, worked in a circus, seen a mermaid, been a war name it, he's done it...and he's got a story to tell you about it.
Will's struggle with the facts of Edward's life is really the crux of the picture. At what point does reality become fantasy? And what's more important...the facts or the story itself? It really matters to Edward that Will believe his stories. The stories need to live on...if not for Will, for his son and future generations of Blooms. The stories are his legacy...his gift to the future. In a sense, they are his immortality.
To go off on a bit of a personal tangent, I really didn't get to know my father well enough. I didn't hear a lot of his stories, except second and thirdhand. He wasn't one to exaggerate, but I understand the need to look for some history of the ones we love. When my father was dying, we talked more about concepts and abstracts than anything else. Same with my mom. About two months before she died, we had a wonderful talk about happiness that still haunts me to this day.
I tend to be the family romantic. I'm the one with the crazy stories...though strangely, the really crazy ones I can't tell because I don't have the context for the weirdness of reality itself. I've led a charmed life, and done things that I know sound like total bullshit to the casual listener. Fact is, if they don't believe me...fuck 'em.
I was touched by this movie. In fact, I bawled like a little girl. I was sad, yes...but deliriously happy, too. It's a tribute to the power of life and love and joy, and it made me damn glad to be alive.
I haven't read Daniel Wallace's novel (though now I'd like to) or John August's script that he posted online. I'm not sure what kind of picture either of them would paint of Edward Bloom's world, but I just can't think of a better person to bring it to life than Burton. His imagination and sense of wonder have long made me a fan. This is his most accomplished, mature picture and one of the best movies I've seen ever, let alone this year. Considering I've been able to say that about a handful of movies in the last 12 months...let's just say I'm a happy boy.
