Django for best picture??? f*ck off! Bradley Cooper nominated for best actor??? f*ck off!Instead it should go to either to Denzel or Daniel Day-Lewis! Best actress definitely Naomi Watts. Spielberg should finally get his Oscar now. Supporting actor & actress should be interesting this year.

First time I see that 9 films are nominated. Must be a record to this day.

@McQueen

Did you see Silver Linings Playbook? Because Cooper was fantastic in it. He had to be comedic and likable, while still being a believable explosive danger to himself and others and he pulled it off in an incredibly effective way. I don't think he'll win, but it'd be well-earned if he did.

Speaking of Silver Linings Playbook, I am beyond happy to see it get the number of nominations it did. I don't that much at all about Oscars, but it would be nice to see the small film by David O Russell upset what everyone assumes to be a Oscar shoo in Spielberg's oversized Lincoln.

Biggest snub I see is no Best Original Screenplay nod for Paul Thomas Anderson. No one could make any kind of legitimate argument saying that Flight was a more well-written film than The Master. No one ever.

I think you will. I haven't heard a negative word about it yet from anyone I know who's seen it. And it's DeNiro's best role in at least a decade so if nothing else you'll have that to hold on to.
minkowski writes:
on January 10th, 2013 at 2:32:15 PM

"Biggest snub I see is no Best Original Screenplay nod for Paul Thomas Anderson."

The Master is adapted, in large part, admittedly, from the the life and times of L. Ron Hubbard. That makes it's only fractionally more "original" than Lincoln, which is based around academic, factual ruminations on The Great Emancipator; a scholastically-researched book, in fact.


"No one could make any kind of legitimate argument saying that Flight was a more well-written film than The Master. No one ever."


Why would they when "original" has nothing to do with how well-written a screenplay is? I mean, a kid's turd doodle might be entirely original, in that no one has ever seen a kid's turd doodle quite that like before in the history of history, but is it well-written?


To be both, well-written AND original, you'd need the screen equivalent of Joyce's Finnegan's Wake. Something that's never been seen before, not in that iteration, and something that's profoundly penned.

You've confused the two, clearly.

Anyway, The Master: not very original, but perhaps well-written. Flight: Not really original, and perhaps not as well written as The Master, although I'd want to read both scripts before adjudicating.

Regardless, your argument holds, just not as originally stated.

Lancaster Dodd's life, his work, and life trajectory are inspired by that of L Ron Hubbard's, but the movie is hardly a straight-laced biopic of the man. Freddie Quell's story alone is reason enough to put it comfortably into Original Screenplay company. Did Hubbard's life inspire the story? Yes. Is the movie mostly an adaptation of his life? No.

Not that I at all like separating the categories in Original and Adapted, a good screenplay is a good screenplay in my opinion.

Exactly. Well-written, perhaps, but original? Not really.

"a good screenplay is a good screenplay in my opinion."

Sure, but...why? Because it's original, or because it's well-written, or because it's both?
triggax writes:
on January 10th, 2013 at 4:27:04 PM

I remember this same exact debate over adapted and original screenplays, on this website, after the Oscar nominations came out last year.

Bottom line. The academy doesn't have literature of any kind of which they would be able to say yes, this was an amazing adaptation, regarding the Master. Every f*cking screen play on here is a work of inspiration whether it be inspired from actual events or other. So how can you even really have a debate over this ?

If its a f*cking novel and someone adapts it. Boom. We know the category. Keep it simple. No sense being nitpicky. The Master was a work of fiction plain and simple and trumps Flight in every aspect of writing.

Mink. Once a download is available for the Master, I'm sure you'll watch it and understand. Until then, there's really no use arguing a films writing if you've never watched the damn film.
triggax writes:
on January 10th, 2013 at 4:32:37 PM

Lets take Zero Dark Thirty for instance. That is based literally on actual events that took place within the last decade. I don't honestly see how this is a contender for original screenplay and Argo is adapted. Oh wait. I get it. It was Adapted from some other form of media. Zero Dark Thirty was not. Neither was The Master.
minkowski writes:
on January 10th, 2013 at 4:40:21 PM

Yadda yadda yadda.

In my mind, "adapted" only means how well the film was translated from the original source material. "Original" means just that. Original.

But why in the world would I ever listen to someone who has, with almost every post over the last two years, taken time to tell me how much he hates me and the other WPers?

Even I don't say sh*t like that.
velocityknown writes:
on January 10th, 2013 at 4:41:31 PM

Sure, but...why? Because it's original, or because it's well-written, or because it's both?

Hmmm, I guess it's hard to say. I think I just like to take it on a case by case basis. For instance, how well-written a true story might be might outweigh the originality of another script that's not that well-written. There are a lot of scripts that feature original ideas but are not well-written (Prometheus) and a lot of well-written scripts that are not necessarily original ideas of the writer (Silver Linings Playbook).

These are just my thoughts on the topic. My opinion is that adapting a screenplay isn't as easy as some people might think it is. Sometimes it's harder to do a good work justice, or make it filmable than it is to come up with an original idea.

At the end of the day, the Oscar's rules for Adapted and Original are pretty dumb also. A few years back, Neil Blomkamp's District 9 was nominated under Adapted just because he expanded on the short District 9 was based on. Whereas Milk was nominated under Original when it was, basically, a biopic.

And isn't it about time to give Denzel a best actor award? Not because he's black, but because, over the years, he's more than earned one imo.

Seal Team Six was rubbish compared to Zero Dark Thirty. Do yourself a favor.

@triggax

Seeing a more or less free version about the government-sactioned course of events about the "death" of "Osama Bin Laden" is enough for me.

Point Break and Strange Days are the only halfway-decent films Kathryn Bigelow has or ever will make anyways.

I'll check out ZDT if i'm super bored sometime when it's on NetFlix or Amazon Prime for free.

It's always foolish to trust the "official" story about anything to begin with.

WHAT ??? No Twilight :P

Seriously, I Liked Zero Dark Thirty. It to me was a good watch. With the hype you guys gave Django, I was quite disappointed with it, I generally go in not having expectations so was more or less bored for about 80% of it and felt besides Christopher waltz And Sam Jacksons performances it was a dead fish.

Have not seen the other nominated best Pictures so don't really care.

Interesting points everyone. Have no time to comment precisely now.

Affleck and Bigelow cancelled each other, Behn Zeitlin is this years "indie choice", while the movie was so-so. Surely, applause for raising the budget and getting it off the ground. Why wasn't 'Primer' or 'Clean, Shaven' nominated two decades ago? Too dark and artsy?

sh*tstorm is coming, mr. Wayne for TDKR not getting a single nod.

Ps. Bane, I see you got to Indiewire as well?
