The Oscar selections

From today i would be checking on some of the works of 2011 which could possibly make an entry into the Oscars being held on Feb 2012. As usual the Golden globes nomination list has already been announced and we have a slight view on the favourites this year, and almost every time the films from this list usually makes it to the Oscars. Will be waiting for the results of the winners of the Golden Globe Awards 2012, who will be awarded on the 15th of January next year.

There will be ten nominations for the best film category, and the movies which would try to be on the top are these :
The Descendants                              http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1033575/
Moneyball                                        http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1210166/
The Help                                          http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1454029/
Hugo                                                http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0970179/
The Ides of March                            http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1124035/
War Horse                                        http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1568911/

50/50                                                http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1306980/
The Artist                                         http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1655442/
Tree of Life                                      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0478304/
My Week With Marilyn                     http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1655420/
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy                  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1340800/

We will also see a very tight competition for the spot of the best actor this year with some really good characters being potrayed this year, my favourites being Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling.

Jean Dujardin: The Artist
Brendan Gleeson; The Guard
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: 50/50
George Clooney, The Descendants
Leonardo DiCaprio, J. Edgar
Michael Fassbender, Shame
Ryan Gosling, The Ides of March
Brad Pitt, Moneyball, Tree of Life

The same uncertainity goes for the best actress awards too. Though in the golden globes Kate Winslet led the nominations race, the same cant be necessarily happening at the Oscars. Meryl Streep might get yet another nomination this year too. I really would like to see 'My week with Marilyn' to assess Michelle's work which i think would be one of the best this year.

Glenn Close, Albert Nobbs
Viola Davis, The Help
Rooney Mara, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
Tilda Swinton, We Need to Talk About Kevin
Jodi Foster, Carnage
Charlize Theron, Young Adult
Michelle Williams, My Week With Marilyn
Kate Winslet, Carnage

There are still more movies which haven't got their due in the golden globes. The dangerous Method, and Extremely Loud and Incredibly close also could feature in the list.

From today i will be watching these movies and letting you know if they really have it in them to go the distance, or maybe you could decide for yourself. Keep coming back for more :)
