Oscar 2010-2011 Watchlist

February 2, 2011 — 4 Comments

I know, I know… I haven’t been blogging about any of the awards since I launched YAM. But hey! If you were following YAM on Twitter, you’d know I’ve been commenting on them~

Did the Globes [Firth, Portman, Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right), Paul Giamatti, Melissa Leo + Christian Bale, + The Social Network wins for Movie+Score+Script+Director] Did the whole SAG Awards [Colin Firth (The King’s Speech), Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Melissa Leo + Christian Bale (The Fighter) + The King’s Speech for Cast), and the Oscar noms aren’t really that surprising, but there were a couple of nice things.

First, Yay Javier Bardem, Yay John Hawkes.

Here’s my list of watched and not-watched films.

Light blue – Watched
Hot pink – Dying to watch.

New York actually liked The Kids Are All Right, at least in terms of acting and story… but they still awarded The Social Network for Best Picture, as well as Best Director.

They also show some love for France awarding Carlos and The Illusionist.

Hmm… cultural geographical question — is LA more willing to award Kim Hye-ja because the West Coast is closer to Asia? and the East Coast is nearer Europe? xD Even though New York’s Chinatown is pretty famous~~~

First, let me spazz as the LA Critics surprise by choosing Korean Actress — awesomest ahjumma for the award season — Kim Hye-ja for Best Actress with her work on Bong Joon-ho’s Madeo (Mother). The pick kind of baffles me since I consider Madeo a 2009 Film, and Kim Hye-ja was even nominated in my first Experiments Awards.

Still… *goes crazy*

Then, the LA Critics also surprise with a tie for Director choosing Olivier Assayas for Carlos, as well as David Fincher for The Social Network. While adding a personal sting by picking Olivia Williams for Best Supporting Actress runner-up — RUNNER-UP!!!! — for her work on The Ghost Writer… beaten by Jacki Weaver in Animal Kingdom. LOL

They mostly love The Social Network, I guess~ since they’re awarding the film for Best Film, Direction and Screenplay. But they also love Black Swan awarding Best Actress, Cinematography and Score.

Best fan-awesome? Noomi Rapace for Breakthrough x)

Just because I wanted to use that picture I didn’t get to use somewhere else. LOL
