ACADEMY AWARDS 2013

AND THE NOMINEES ARE...

Rumours have been flying for days. Anyone who's seen a movie in the past twelve months has been speculating. Without question, it's that time again - the road to the year's biggest celebration of film, the Academy Awards.

With news that the nominees would be announced by Seth MacFarlane (only the second time in the ceremony's tradition that the Oscars presenter would also reveal the nominations, joining the illustrious ranks with trigger-happy Charlton Heston in 1972), along with Hollywood favourite, Emma Stone, it's a small hint that the Academy is planning to do things a little differently this year.

Couldn't agree with you more about 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' - it's such a unique film, with a fascinating, unconventional story and bold direction. 'Silver Linings Playbook' has gained a huge amount of momentum in the U.S., thanks to its earlier release there, while Australians are left wondering what all the fuss is about - fortunately we'll get our chance at the end of the month. Even with 'Lincoln' in the mix, this year feels like a fairly even playing field - it's hard to say in any category anyone is outright going to win.

The love for Beast of the Southern Wild was wonderful to see. Best Director was shocking but in a very good way. Was glad to see Benh Zeitlin and Michael Haneke surprise everyone. Both truly represent great direction. Disappointed to see a snub for Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty as her direction in that film was near perfect. The biggest upset of all was the snub of Ben Affleck who the Academy clearly hasn't forgiven. Has Silver Linings just gained a huge amount of momentum. The 12 nods for Lincoln were to be expected, Life of Pi isn't surprising but I don't think anyone expected to see Silver Linings get so many. What is the Academy telling us? Jacki Weaver the biggest shock of all! It's going to be an interesting month and a half!
