Oscar Senses Tingling, Part Two

The Ides of March
What it's likely to get nominated for: Best Picture, Supporting Actor (Hoffman)
What I'd like it to be nominated for: Lead Actor (Gosling)

I don't know what Ryan Gosling has to do to seriously warrant some Oscar consideration, but come on! Nominations for Hoffman and 'Ides' are a lock. Clooney would probably net something for his dichotomous role as Governor Mike Morris, if it weren't for The Descendants.



Martha Marcy May Marlene
What it's likely to get nominated for: Lead Actress (Olsen)
What I'd like it to be nominated for: Supporting Actor (Hawkes)

This year's Best Actress field is a fiercely crowded one. Between the legends of Close and Streep, you have the solid Viola Davis and underdog character actors Olivia Colman (Tyrannosaur). Olsen may not be able to pull off what Jennifer Lawrence did last year with Winter's Bone.




J. Edgar
What it's likely to get nominated for: Best Picture, Lead Actor (DiCaprio), Supporting Actress (Dench)
What I'd like it to be nominated for: Lead Actor

J. Edgar may have its faults--or several depending on who you ask--but Leonardo DiCaprio is certainly its strongest aspect. He took a man made of shadows and myths and presented him in his entirety. Despite the makeup he embodies a man obsessed with secrets, though he clings desperately to his own.

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.

The Avengers hits theatres in 2012.
