The best movie, best actor, best music
Feb 15 - 08:40 PM
This will maybe get 2 or three oscars, one or two for costumes or set design, and one for Hathaway. The others are quite frankly a longshot for this film.
Feb 15 - 05:31 PM
What a great movie. lt should get many Oscars. Acting was powerful. THough most people loved Ann Hathaways performance, l thought it being very ordinary. The sets created atmosphere , costumes great as well. It was a very difficult film to sit through as it stressed me but absolutely held my attention throughout. The singing was just acceptable, but overall 10/10.
Feb 2 - 04:53 AM
I loved the movie and have seen it twice. Ann Hathaway will definitely win but Argo and Lincoln may take the top prizes. While Daniel Day Lewis was amazing as Lincoln I found the movie to be a bit of a yawn......
Jan 30 - 04:38 PM
I doubt it. I would rather have "Les Miserables" or Life of Pi" or "Django Unchained" to win Best Picture.
Jan 31 - 05:09 PM
I agree - I would quite like to see 'Les Miserables' or 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' to win Best Picture, but I understand that the chances are low.
Feb 1 - 07:18 AM
Hathaway for the win. I wish it would win best picture, but it looks like it's between Lincoln and Argo. I saw all three movies and Argo was great and Lincoln a dissapointment (Though I did find it moving, the true story of Lincoln was that he was a racist who freed the slaves for political reasons). Les Mis is quite simply, the greatest musical ever and I've seen many.
Jan 30 - 12:27 PM
The opening scenes were fantastic. A few of the songs were great. It was however much too long. I don't think i could sit through it again. Having said that, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe were brilliant. Not forgetting Sasha-Baron-Cohen and Helena-Bonham-Carter who lifted it.
Jan 30 - 07:14 AM
Anne Hathaway, Smaantha Barks and Eddie Redmayne were all better than the four actors you mentioned. Shame Redmayne wasn't nominated.
Jan 30 - 12:28 PM
Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter were the best in this movie.
Feb 1 - 07:19 AM
It shouldn't even be nominated in any category. If it wins anything, it will diminish even further the value of winning a statuette.
Jan 29 - 03:26 PM
It should win EVERYTHING, any Oscar it wins will give meaning back to winning a statuette.---Fixed.

An excellent example of two opposing overstatements. I agree mostly with Mr. Chastain, though. In my opinion, this movie conveyed the message of both the musical and the book quite well. Sure, the book is much more complex and intellectual, but this is an adaptation, and for an adaptation it did a pretty good job.
Jan 31 - 07:19 AM
If it beats out the Hobbit, in production or in makeup, I will flip my shit. The Company of Dwarves had a better costume designer then Javert or Jean Valjean: hands down.
Jan 16 - 10:21 PM
True, but other than that The Hobbit was horrible. A complete disgrace of both Tolkien's work and Jackson's previous trilogy. Even the makeup was a step down from LOTR. Instead, PJ decided to rely more on CGI.
Les Miserables did a much better job at entertaining me: both the musical and the original Victor Hugo book were done justice in my eyes.
Jan 30 - 07:22 AM
Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Film - Amazing emotional performances throughout.
Jan 4 - 05:27 PM
Have seen Amour? There you will see real acting.
Jan 29 - 03:49 PM
The best overall film I've seen in years. The gritty, dim feel and overall look of the film precisely matches the theme it portrays. Each actor melts into their role and you feel a part of their misery and conflict. Ann Hathaway's brief performance should garner her at least a Best Supporting Actress nod as the woman whose life spirals downward into oblivion. Hugh Jackman it superb in his role as the hounded
Jean Valjean, whose haunting crime of stealing a loaf of bread to help a friend lands him first in prison, and then follows him as he attempts to regain his life. He is totally unrecognizable in his opening scene as he is released from his prison only to be placed on lifelong probation. His singing voice is surprisingly good in this difficult, multifaceted role. Russell Crowe, as the dedicated, somewhat overzealous Inspector Javer, maintains his part throughout Javer's long search to bring Valjean to justice for his "crimes." The remaining cast, including Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen as the whimsical relief in this earthy drama, are perfectly cast in their roles. Look forward to hearing "Les MisÃ©rables" mentioned over and over again come Oscar time. If you haven't yet seen it yet, put it on your agenda, and prepare to be moved in ways few films are able to accomplish (and don't forget the tissues).
Jan 4 - 06:55 AM
Wow. I'm glad you liked it so much.
Jan 4 - 07:13 AM
I think Les Mis... should RUN AWAY with the OSCARS this year !! IT was totally AWESOME !!
Jan 3 - 08:15 PM
Feb 1 - 07:20 AM
Feb 15 - 08:41 PM
I think it gets a bunch of awards, but Lincoln is a better film I think. Here's my full review/comparison
Dec 28 - 10:29 AM
A shoe-in for Anne and HUGE - for shizzle.
Dec 28 - 06:00 AM
I think it will very well; possibly picking up many of the top awards. It is a very fine film adaptation and it's the type of film that the academy voters can feel good about voting for. Classic story with a redeeming moral conclusion, excellent performances and it conjures up the past glories of previous musicals such as Sound of Music, Oliver! and West Side Story. I have seen others say that Daniel Day Lewis will probably win over Hugh Jackman; I certainly hope that is not the case, since Jackman has finally shown the depth of his talent. btw, Anne Hathaway can be nothing but a foregone conclusion for best supporting actress......
Dec 26 - 09:00 PM
2012 was such a bad year for movies.....this one wins a lot of awards for lack of competition, Lincoln and Les Mis are the frontrunners.
Dec 26 - 07:30 PM
A bad year for movies? Maybe last year. Argo, Looper, Django Unchained, The Master, Les Mis, Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty; all borderline masterpieces by the best filmmakers of our lifetime. Each and every one of them. I thought it was a particularly strong year for movies, whereas The Artist (A mediocre film) stood out last year. I find your statement laughable.
Dec 27 - 04:47 PM
Actually you may be right. I have not seen all the movies that you mentioned. I also have not seen Bernie. Argo and Zero Dark Thirty are both fantastic topics, stories and good movies, but probably not strong enough to knock off Les Mis and Lincoln. I should have said that based on the poor choices I have made on my movie viewing in 2012 there seemed to be no competition. I agree with your comments about 2011 movies overall, and The Artist.
Dec 27 - 08:17 PM
the avengers, dark knight rises, skyfall, life of pi, silver linings playbook, the hunger games, flight, the sessions, killing them softly, the impossible, seven psychopaths can't be forgotten either!!! man this is a great year in film
Jan 2 - 07:48 PM
Argo, Les Mis, and Looper are by no means "borderline masterpieces" Django is not groundbreaking in anyway. It is just an awesome movie. The Master is unconventional and not for everyone. Lincoln is a great movie but not a supreme movie. I have not seen Zero Dark Thirty yet. Anyway, I agree with you that 2012 is a better year for movies. But the idea that all these Oscar contenders are "borderline masterpieces" is absurd.
Jan 2 - 08:39 PM
Charlie, I liked the superhero movies, but they are really all the same...nothing new there and they are getting old. I am also a Bond fan, but Skyfall like other Bond movies can not seriously be considered for Oscars. I was disappointed with Life of Pi....so much hype, I guess I was overexpecting. One other movie I really liked was Moonrise Kingdom....crazy .... I felt it was
Wes Anderson at his best....a fun film but not award winning. I guess I am kind of like Sammy..some good movies but not off the charts this year.
Jan 3 - 05:54 PM
Having seen the stage show seventeen times in six cities over twenty years, I hope I speak with some insight. As far as I can tell, this improved a few things (Valjean's death given a bit more explanation, moved Do You Hear The People Sing to a more logical position), missed a few opportunities (the Thenardiers didn't really stick the landing. Seemed unfocused and less vital than they I expected), and made one serious error (shrunk the role of Eponine to near irrelevance). At the Oscars, I expect Best Picture to be a four horse race (Argo, Les Mis, ZD30, and Lincoln). I expect Daniel Day Lewis to beat Hugh Jackman for Best Actor, Hooper to be nominated and not win for Director. I expect wins for Costumes and Art Direction. I expect Anne Hathaway's win for Supporting Actress to be the biggest foregone conclusion since Heath Ledger's four years ago.
Dec 26 - 10:12 AM
I agree with you that Les Miserables will win Art Direction, Supporting Actress and that Tom Hooper and Hugh Jackman will get nominated, but not win. However, I think that it will also win best song, and I don't think that it will win Costumes (I predict Anna Karenina to win that).
Dec 27 - 02:40 AM
Bill Andrew Peralta
supporting and some techs.. I think.. I really hope Hooper doesnt get a nomination.. he butchered this film.. ughh
Dec 26 - 04:49 AM
Hugh Jackman will win the Oscar for the best Actor without a doubt. He works so hard in this film and to sing live is so hard.
Dec 26 - 02:55 AM
No he wont.. thats the problem: he tried SOOO hard that it became unbearable.. he was having a hard time of some of the notes... ughh
Dec 26 - 04:47 AM
You obviously haven't seen Daniel Day-Lewis in 'Lincoln'. Jackman is pretty good in this movie (although I kept seeing Wolverine), but he's no DD-L.
Dec 26 - 08:10 AM
A lot of DDL's performance in Lincoln is credited to great makeup and costume. Sure, he's one hell of an actor, but take him out of the costume and make up and I doubt he wins.
Dec 27 - 06:48 AM
I saw them both. I think DDL did a better job with Lincoln. He was absolutely believable. I thought Jackman was good as Valjean (except for his singing--Bring Him Home was a let down) but towards the end I started to see Wolverine too!
Dec 28 - 08:34 PM
DDL wasn't even the best thing in Licoln. Sure, he gave the best performance in many years (perhaps decades) in There Will Be Blood, but his performance in Lincoln wasn't anything realyl special. He'll win the Oscar though, showing just how insane the academy is.
Jan 30 - 12:24 PM
Deb I disagree with you here He was terrible especially the singing Disappoinment all round in this movie!
Dec 31 - 03:11 PM
I go to nearly every new movie that comes out and I consider myself to be a pretty good critic. In saying that, let me lend my support to Les Miserables as a top contender for an Oscar(s). In my opinion, it is a movie that touches one's very spirit with music, song, and character portrayal. Thank you to all who were involved in any way to its production.
Dec 25 - 12:40 PM
It did not "touch my spirit." Most of the singing was meh to bad.
Jan 3 - 08:14 PM
Anne Hathaway for sure...
Dec 24 - 10:02 PM
well im sure it might get the golden for musical
Dec 18 - 06:48 AM
Nobody has been able to give me an adequate explanation to why Hooper won Best Director for THE KING'S SPEECH. Over Christopher Nolan and David Fincher, seriously? With all due respect to Les Mis, I'm not even going to watch it until it comes on DVD, and I do like musicals. I hope this doesn't win anything as there are many other films that deserve recognition this year. I think the HOBBIT fans can be compared to these musical stage freaks who believe this is a masterpiece. Yeah, not buying it!
Dec 15 - 08:24 AM
Immature attitude Christopher. I love musicals and have seen the stage version 5 times. This is the best musical ever made in my humble opinion.
Dec 15 - 03:51 PM
I've seen the stage version almost 20 times (amateur, Broadway, professional tours, and London). This was a movie that happened to have the some of the same music as the stage version. Many of the lyrics were lost due to over-acting so this wasn't the best musical ever made. In 'Chicago', 'Oklahoma', 'The King and I', etc, the focus is on the music and you can actually understand the lyrics.
Dec 26 - 08:13 AM
I agree. The thing is....Singing is singing and acting is acting. The songs were basically turned into theatrical monologues by all but a few actors. A word from a great singing coach I once had could have come in handy...let the song be the song. Instead, interpretations were over the top for my taste at times. The scenes that were a bit more understated were beautiful. All that said, Hathaway and Jackman can flat out act. I am amazed at their abilities at times. A Crowe fan, but don't know about Crowe in this role. Seemed out of place.
Feb 3 - 08:01 AM
For all it's flaws, they did add a lot of scenes from the book that wouldn't work in a musical, and for that I applaud them. I did like the film, don't get me wrong. But the film sometimes has trouble deciding if it is a good movie or a good musical, and at times it fails to be either.
Dec 26 - 08:48 AM
Clearly you've never seen the South Park Movie, Avenue Q or the Book of Mormon.
Jan 16 - 10:22 PM
The reviews have been mixed and when it comes to awards film is more about politics than excellence. However this group has made grand gestures to buy critics and award givers. It's so extreme that I feel like boycotting. But in truth I have not heard great things about it from people who saw it so I would probably wait and rent the dvd anyway.
Someone really should do a documentary exposing 'award season" using Hooper & company's antics this season. It's not like people didn't guess something wasn't working based on strange choices made in the past by the voters, but now the whole thing looks like a blatant sham.
Dec 17 - 06:30 PM
I just saw it about an hour ago and I was moved by the ensemble and acting as a whole, as well as the music, which was woven in beautifully. You can count me as one person who actually saw the movie and loved it. It's brilliant, really.
Dec 26 - 09:37 PM
I don't think that you should let hype downplay the enormous complexity that is Les Mis. The amount of effort put into this film by all involved is astounding. It wasn't a perfect movie, but it does deserve some Oscar praise. There are films that deserve recognition this year. This is one of them.
Dec 25 - 09:12 AM
Many candidates have complexity in their work Les Miz isn't unique. In fact it's not even an original story. The actors singing live may be new to film musicals but it's not new as far as actors singing live with emotional connection. From what i hear even that didn't work often enough.
Given this & their grotesque way of going after voters attention, it means they don't deserve much Oscar praise. In fact it only shows what people guessed..... that these awards can be bought.
Your attitude is why this system often seems to fail.
Dec 25 - 07:31 PM
And shouldn't a 'musical' be about the music? Singing live made for weak voices and many of the lyrics were lost due to overacting in the part.
Dec 26 - 08:14 AM
I have to question the taste of anyone who thinks FIncher deserves an Oscar, especially for the overrated Social Network. Fincher is a meidocre director, someone who film students love because he puts style above substance. His movies are okay, but none has ever been anywhere close to Oscar level.
That being said how the hell can you comment on the quality of a film you haven't seen?
Jan 30 - 12:32 PM
With all of the buzz Zero Dark Thirty is getting, I don't see this winning Best Picture, but a Hathaway is a sure bet.
Dec 12 - 09:54 PM
Who says? I'm down for Jessica Chastain or Rachel Weisz myself.
Dec 15 - 08:20 AM
Hathaway is under supporting so she'll definitely win. I think that might be the only oscar it wins unless it gets Original Song or something. Probably like 10 nominations though.
Dec 18 - 08:03 AM
I agree. Hathaway was breathtaking in the movie. I was absolutely riveted during I Dreamed A Dream.
Dec 26 - 09:39 PM
I thought Hathaway severely over-acted in her role. Fantine is such a pitiable character in the stage version and I actually found myself wanting her to die quickly in the movie. She just kept draggggggging it out.
Dec 26 - 08:16 AM
Hathaway was the best Fantine I've ever seen and I've seen a few. Her voice wasn't technically the best, but she put more emotion into the role than anyone could hope to.
Jan 30 - 12:33 PM
It lost the advantage for best picture and best director, don't know about cast.
Dec 7 - 07:30 PM
Why do you think it won't win Best Picture or Director?
Dec 7 - 07:39 PM
Yes, Zane, why do you think it won't? Many journalists have already made this prediction, including IndieWire making it in their top 5 to be NOMINATED for BP AND BD, and basically is only battling out the WIN with "Lincoln" and maybe "Zero Dark Thirty".
Dec 7 - 08:23 PM
Think it'll get nominated, but has a very slim chance of winning against Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty or Beasts of the Southern Wild. Think it will probably win Musical and has a shot in Costume and Supporting Actress for Hathaway, but that's about it.
Dec 19 - 05:00 PM
Oh and Argo will beat it out too.
Dec 19 - 05:02 PM
I've seen both and agree, Argo is a better film, both in direction and overall picture. And this is coming from someone who generally avoids political drama and loves almost all musicals. Les Mis might have a chance at the Golden Globes since many votes are bought.
Jan 3 - 08:21 PM
Eh, who cares.
Dec 6 - 09:05 PM
If there is any justice, it will take everything that isn't nailed down. This film will still be a frequently watched classic decades from now and any temporary hot shot film will be long forgotten.
Dec 6 - 01:44 PM
To call Lincoln a temporary hotshot film is insane.
Dec 19 - 05:01 PM
That's very true. I think Les Mis and Lincoln will battle it out for many of the top honors.
Dec 26 - 09:40 PM
Lincoln was okay, but very disapointing. DDL especially was not up to his usual standards. Sally Field stole the movie.
Jan 30 - 12:35 PM
Called it. THR weighs in:
A gallery of stellar performers wages a Sisyphean battle against musical diarrhea Les Miserables. Victor Hugo's monumental 1862 novel about a decades-long manhunt, social inequality, family disruption, injustice and redemption started its musical life onstage in 1980 and has been around ever since, a history of success that bodes well for this lavish, star-laden film. But director Tom Hooper has turned the theatrical extravaganza into something that is far less about the rigors of existence in early 19th century France than it is about actors emoting mightily and singing their guts out.
Dec 6 - 09:25 AM
It has locks on Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actress, Costume Design, and possibly Art Direction, Cinematography, a second Supporting Actress, maybe Original Screenplay, and some other stuff like sound and maybe, but unlikely, Supporting Actor. It will win Supporting Actress for Anne Hathaway and has a shot at Picture. Other possible wins are Director or other technical awards and maybe actor. But that's a tough category.
Dec 2 - 07:07 PM
My guess is that it'll be nominated for Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Costume Design and Editing. I think that it will win Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress, Best Production Design, and Best Song.
Dec 4 - 02:27 AM
Adding a song just so it could get nominated in the 'Best Song' category was shameful. Clearly, Hooper cares more about recognition and honors than about honoring his source material.
Dec 26 - 08:18 AM
The book makes it clear that Jean Valjean is further changed by his love for Cosette. Yes he had learned to be kind to his fellow man, but the love of a father is a different, powerful thing. It isn't possible to show this change in a musical, but you can do it in a movie. So I did like the message of the song, even if I wasn't a huge fan of the addition.
Dec 26 - 08:45 AM
Makeup design was also a standout.
Dec 26 - 08:50 AM
Except Helena's - she sits in that make-up 24/7 awaiting her next part.
Dec 28 - 06:03 AM
With the reviews out I don't think it has a shot at winning anything except Supporting Actress and Original Song. Will be nominated for Picture, most likely Actor, Technical shit awards, and maybe Director.
Dec 18 - 08:05 AM
I agree, somewhat, I didn't particularly like Hathaway myself, but others seem in rapture about her. I don't think she can beat Sally Field though if that is her competition. I think it will only win Original Song, which I think the film deserves, it is a lovely song
Dec 22 - 03:27 PM
Sally Field was great, no doubt, but no way she will win an Oscar for Lincoln.
It makes me feel worse about the movie that it needs a personal cheerleader, instead of making the reviews (currently under embargo) stand on their own.
Dec 2 - 03:24 PM
Oh pithy PJ Edwards - how I enjoy reading you.
Dec 28 - 06:04 AM
If Picture doesn't go to Les Mis, it'll probably be picked up instead by Argo. I think if Director doesn't go to Ben Affleck or Tom Hooper, it could again go to Ang Lee for Life of Pi... and the only other real contenders for Picture are Zero Dark Thirty and The Hobbit. Maybe Tarantino's Django Unchained, but that probably has a better chance for Original Screenplay.
So, based on what I've been hearing:
Picture: Les MisÃ©rables or Argo (though I have hope for Life of Pi or Zero Dark Thirty)
Director: Hooper, Affleck, or Lee
Original Screenplay: Flight, The Master, Django Unchained, or Zero Dark Thirty
Adapted Screenplay: Argo, Life of Pi, Lincoln, or MAYBE Les MisÃ©rables
Actor: Denzel Washington, Daniel Day-Lewis, Christoph Waltz, Hugh Jackman, or Joaquin Phoenix
Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, Marion Cotillard, Jessica Chastain, or Quvenzhane Wallis
S. Actor: Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Leonardo diCaprio, Javier Bardem, Eddie Redmayne, or Tommy Lee Jones
S. Actress: Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Helen Hunt, or Sally Field
Original Score: Lincoln, Life of Pi, Moonrise Kingdom, The Hobbit, or... Beasts of the Southern Wild?
Original Song: Suddenly from Les MisÃ©rables
Cinematography: Skyfall (Roger Deakins is long overdue), Lincoln, Les MisÃ©rables, Life of Pi, or The Master
Film Editing: Argo, Les MisÃ©rables, Lincoln, or Zero Dark Thirty
Production Design: The Hobbit, Anna Karenina, Les MisÃ©rables, or Lincoln
Costume Design: The Hobbit, Mirror Mirror, Anna Karenina, Les MisÃ©rables, or Lincoln
Visual Effects: Cloud Atlas, Prometheus, Life of Pi, or The Hobbit
Makeup and Hairstyling: Prometheus, Cloud Atlas, Lincoln, or The Hobbit
Nov 29 - 02:23 PM
Great list, Austin! Having just seen Les Miserables, I would place it in every category. Astounding film indeed! ~ e
Dec 1 - 11:37 PM
Though I wasn't the biggest fan of Lincoln, you're definitely downplaying it. I'd say Lincoln is one of the frontrunners - far ahead of Argo and Life of Pi. I'd say Life of Pi is hopeless outside of the technical categories. It will get plenty of nominations, but I don't see it winning much, regardless of how much I enjoyed it. I'd say the best picture race is Lincoln vs Zero Dark Thirty vs Les Miserables, with Argo as the dark horse.
Dec 12 - 09:55 PM
I don't think Les Mis is even in the running anymore for anything outside of Song and Supporting Actress.
Dec 19 - 05:04 PM
No way is this winning Best Picture, but it will be nominated. They really shot themselves in the foot with Russell Crowe.
Dec 22 - 03:29 PM
"based on what I have been hearing" is not a reliable source when predicting the Oscars. Lincoln is way more of a contender for Best Picture then Les Mis. As is Spielberg over Hooper. Waltz is not a lead role. He might get nominated for Supporting, like he did with the globes, but he won't get nominated for lead actor.
Jan 4 - 04:08 PM
Mary Williame Taranee Courtney
Eddie Redmayne is Nominated? Awesome Sauce!
Jan 29 - 04:42 AM
Yeah quite probably an Oscar nomination for Anne Hathaway, possibly even the win. I doubt though that anyone is going to prevent Daniel Day-Lewis from winning his 3rd Oscar. Oscar voters like historical figures too much. See Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher, Colin Firth as King George etc
Nov 29 - 04:46 AM
You've got an interesting point. I'm pretty sure that Hathaway will win best supporting actress, because (1) critics say her performance is phenomenal and (2) she doesn't really have any competition.
Nov 29 - 09:38 AM
Indeed, Day-Lewis did a great job, but the screenplay was too weak. Whereas the screenplay/musical for this film is so far superior, at this point, Hugh Jachman has a solid lead for the Oscar! However, as we know, they're truly all winners! ~ e
Dec 1 - 11:30 PM
Well, an Oscar for Anna Hathaway is a CERTAIN up to this point.
Nov 29 - 03:40 AM
Yes indeed! And especially a Best Actor Oscar for Hugh Jackman!!! In fact, it would be fitting for this film to win in any category! Just saw a screening at Lucas' ILM here in San Francisco. Truly a powerful movie experience! ~ e
Dec 1 - 11:14 PM
Not if she is against Sally Field. I think Sally will have the edge.
Dec 22 - 03:31 PM
I'm predicting a clean sweep. Word of mouth is building beyond all expectations i.e. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jay-weston/les-miserables-film_b_2188906.html?utm_hp_ref=fb&src=sp&comm_ref=false#sb=1665433,b=facebook
Nov 28 - 06:29 PM
Just saw it tonight. Yes indeed, beyond all expectations! An artistic, emotional and technical tour do force!! ~ e
Dec 1 - 11:18 PM
Soon life will kill the dream you two are dreaming.
Dec 19 - 05:07 PM
I think it's gonna win 'best picture'. I mean, there are so many things this movie has, deft visuals, lavish sets, strong make-up, powerful songs (and emotional singing), I can go on for hours. And with so many nominations it's begging for, that's almost going to give it a fast-pass to a 'best picture' nomination and in turn (I'm guessing) go the full distance and crown itself as reigning champion.
That's my theory at least
Nov 25 - 03:35 PM
I have been hearing really good things about the movies, but I don't know if the Academy would want to give the Oscar to Tom Hooper again.
Nov 26 - 04:32 AM
Agreed, Clayton!!! Just saw it and will see it again! ~ e
Dec 1 - 11:20 PM
I have high hopes for this movie. Maybe about 5 wins and 10 nominations?
Nov 25 - 01:28 PM
Just keep those hopes high for they certainly WILL be met, Colson! Can't wait to see it again! ~ e
Dec 1 - 11:40 PM
