I think Chastain will win best actress based off of precursor awards. Do you think she deserves it? I think she's a great actress who came out of fucking nowhere.
The screener is out and it's a fantastic film, better than The Hurt Locker IMO. Yeah, she killed it and it's one of the best performances from an actress this year, easy. And, yeah she's been in everything lately, I feel like I saw her in Tree of Life and then she just pops everywhere. Great actress though, so I'm happy to see her get a lot of good roles. That new one called Mama looks interesting.

Nice. It's long, but it's paced nicely, everything that goes on is interesting and it all makes the mission at the end all the more satisfying. Enjoy.

Can concur with that, though I watch the Oscars just for the sake of entertainment and voyerism only. Like Doxley said, sometimes even The Academy has decisive moments.

The Golden Globes are much more accurate, when it comes down to appreciate properly the achievement of the nominated.

What about the quality? Is it watchable?

Not a fan of the awards at all. Sometimes I agree with their decisions, but most of the time I don't.

The race to best supporting actor is going to be.. something. There were so many performances I can think up on one hand that are all deserving of the award. Tommy Lee will most likely win for Lincoln no matter who else is nominated. I just have that feeling. It's still going to be extremely close for many. Especially if the same noms from the Globes carry over.

Yep...I agree. I also think every acting category race is very close too.

I watched Zero Dark Thirty last night.

I'm going to watch it again in about 30 minutes and I'll report back with my thoughts.

After the first viewing I can safely say this is easily one of the best movies of the year.

Is it structured a bit more traditionally than The Hurt Locker? THL wasn't so much of a story, as it was a snapshot of a modern soldiers life. I didn't much care for it.

I can compare this to Zodiac in that its one giant, intricate manhunt. Obviously I'm not saying ZDT is like Zodiac in most of its elements, but its an exciting mystery capped with one of the most intense war/combat scenes I've ever seen.

Definitely a more focused film than The Hurt Locker, but just as expansive as other big, mystery-driven films. It takes place over the corse of a decade. Acting is just. fucking. amazing. Really emotional as well. I love it. I'll write more about it after I watch it again.
