Beyond Awards, Oscar Campaign

I Declare The Golden Globes Frenzy Open ! Here’s my predictions in pictures

It’s Golden Globe weekend!

I love The GG show. The GG are like the Oscar’s foreplay, unless there’s more funny jokes , thanks to Tina & Amy. Yes Tina Fey and Amy Phoeler have done the impossible – they’ve secured hosting spots for the Golden Globes for the next two years in a row. They were absolutely awesome.

So because this year we have strong players and hard campaigners ( Scorsese yes I am talking bout you!) the season must be really entertaining. Lainey has been covering this campaign days after days since October and it’s pretty interesting to understand the strategy for each movies. Some studio are whoring their actors really much under the light ( American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street, Her) some doesn’t, maybe because they doesn’t need to, because they are confident that the movie will secure an award by it self ( Blue Jasmine, Gravity ).

Here’s my prediction !!

FILM

Best Motion Picture – Drama

12 Years A Slave

Oscar Contenders Ejiofor, Fassbender and Nyong'o

Oscar Contenders Ejiofor, Fassbender and Nyong’o

12 Years A Slave is considered, almost unanimously, the best film of the year, the frontrunner for Best Picture.

Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy

“The Wolf Of Wall Street”

It’s Martin Scorsese, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s a studio picture, and these are some power players.

Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama
Chiwetel Ejiofor, “12 Years A Slave”

1yearaslave

Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy

Leonardo DiCaprio, “The Wolf of Wall Street”

wolfofwallstreet

Leo’s performance is being called the best of his career – an uninhibited portrayal of Jordan Belfort and all the decadence of the financial 80s, robbing people of millions and millions of dollars.LaineyGossip

Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama
Cate Blanchett, “Blue Jasmine”

Cate Blanchett  is the current favourite and while the other races look pretty tight, most Oscar experts are still predicting she’ll run away with it, even though she’s done practically no campaigning. For the most part, Cate has stayed away from Hollywood, away from the scene. But then again, she’s Cate Blanchett. She doesn’t have to. _LaineyGossip

2dn option
Sandra Bullock, “Gravity”

Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy

Meryl Streep, “August: Osage County”

???????????????????????????

Meryl Streep has been largely absent from promotion for August: Osage County. Right now, according to the Oscar predictors, Meryl’s still in as one of the 5 nominees for Best Actress._ LaineyGossip

Best Supporting Actor

Jared Leto, “Dallas Buyers Club”

It’s almost a given now that he’ll receive an Oscar nomination. Right now, a lot of expertspredict he could actually take it, especially since Michael Fassbender is refusing to campaign. Leto has been campaigning for weeks.

2dn Option :

Michael Fassbender, “12 Years A Slave”

There’s too much of hotness this year. Yep Fassy’s not campaigning this year. And that’s a shame !

Best Supporting Actress

Lupita Nyong’o, “12 Years A Slave”

Lupita Nyong’o Wmag

Lupita has had a very good campaigning season . She’s promoting 12 Years A Slave like a pro and she even stroke a new partnership with Miu Miu .

2dn Option :
Julia Roberts, “August: Osage County”

???????????????????????????Julia Roberts is campaigning really really hard for her Oscar nomination. Between Lupita, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lawrence she’s really present on red carpets, tv shows and premiere. It’s been a while since she hasn’t been in the Oscar circuit so it’s really interesting to see her in action.

Combining America’s most beloved and respected actress with, well, the Julia Roberts is what they were after all along when they put this movie together._LaineyGossip

Best Director

Steve McQueen, “12 Years A Slave”

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????12 Years a Slave is coming for Oscar. 12 Years is a far more grounded and realistic approach to slavery and the moral muck it sunk America into—the mire we’re clearly still struggling to crawl out of. And what about THAT CAST, this will be a monster contender come fall.

Best Screenplay
Spike Jonze, “Her”

her

Best Original Song

“Ordinary Love,” U2 (“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”)

“Blue is the Warmest Color”

Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television

Sofia Vergara, “Modern Family”

???????????????????????????

You guys know how much I am obsessed with the awards season. Maybe it’s because of all the red carpet craziness, or because of the hard ass-kissing winning discourses, or maybe and probably this is what I like the most, it’s about all the Oscars campaign strategy game that studio, actors, directors have to play.

January is a busy month in terms of Awards gala. People Choice’s Awards or can we say Publicist Choice Awards ( Adam Sandler come on..) stand this Thursday, The BAFTA nominations were announced on Wednesday, and the Golden Globes will air this Sunday.

The show will be this Sunday  and I will cover the shit of course. For the occasion I will do my first fashion review as GLOBE WORST / GLOBE BEST. Prepare the drinks yall’ !!!

  1. I think my predictions here might be a little more “accurate”
    Best Drama Series : Breaking Bad
    Best Actor in a Television Drama Series : Bryan Cranston
    Best Actress in a Television Drama Series : Julianna Margulies, “The Good Wife”
    Best Comedy Series : “Girls” … As much as I want Parks & Recreation to win, I think Girls might be the comedy that the foreign press might like the most.
    Best Actor in a Television Comedy Series : Andy Samberg, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” ( I actually think he has a chance!)
    Best Actress in a Television Comedy Series : Zooey Deschanel, “New Girl” (But I want Amy Poehler!!!!)
    Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television : “American Horror Story: Coven” based on popularity though people talked about “Behind the Candelabra” a lot
    Best Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television : Michael Douglas, “Behind the Candelabra” although I want IDRIS!
    Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television : Jessica Lange, “American Horror Story: Coven”
    Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television : Aaron Paul, “Breaking Bad”
    Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture made for Television : Sofia Vergara, “Modern Family”

    Because this was the last season of Breaking Bad and people talked about the finale for days , I think it’s going to get a lot of awards…

  2. Those are not really my predictions but more my wishes
    Best Motion Picture – Drama : 12 Years a Slave
    Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: “Inside Llewyn Davis” (X)
    Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama : Chiwetel Ejiofor, “12 Years A Slave” (X)
    Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy : Oscar Isaac, “Inside Llewyn Davis” (X)
    Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama : Sandra Bullock
    Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy : Julie Delpy, “Before Midnight”
    Best Supporting Actor : Barkhad Abdi, “Captain Phillips”(X)
    Best Supporting Actress : Lupita Nyong’o, “12 Years A Slave” (X)
    Best Director : Alfonso Cuaron, “Gravity” (X)
    Best Screenplay : Spike Jonze, “Her”
    Best Original Song : “Please Mr. Kennedy,” Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Adam Driver (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) (X)
    Best Foreign Language Film : “Blue is the Warmest Color”
    To be honest, people really praised 12 Years a Slave as a movie, and Lupita as a revelation, so I think maybe it might win Best Motion and then nothing else ~ le gasp ~
