WHICH OSCAR MOVIE WILL BE A TOTAL DISASTER

CHEESIEST PICTURE I COULD STEAL FROM THE INTERNET

Jeff Wells at Hollywood Elsewhere heard a rumor that one of big anticipated movies to come out this year is a “total disaster”. Nobody knows which movie it is and we can only speculate. Is It LINCOLN, DJANGO UNCHAINED, ZERO DARK THIRTY, ARGO or LIFE OF PI?  Every year there are a few movies that are presumed Oscar contenders and end up falling flat. It only takes a few bad reviews. That is why film festival showings are so important. It can hurt you or really help you. The attendees get conversations started about their favorites and the games begin.

Some of the most anticipated potential award-winning movies this are not yet part of any festival. LINCOLN is looking to be this years WARHORSE in that it so far is being kept a big secret. It has not been announced in any festival line ups. They did release a one sheet from the film, but we have yet to see any other pictures or a trailer. Sometimes a movie company wants to keep a film under wraps knowing that when the critics see it, they will tear it apart. Lessening its chances at an Oscar run. WARHORSE was first shown at public screenings in a handful of cities that critics and bloggers were less likely to attend. This way they could get some feedback on the movie before the attack dogs pounce. If that is the plan for LINCOLN, they may not have as much faith in it as they should.

Of course all of this speculation is what Oscar Bloggers do best.

  1. It’s not Anna Karenina. The film is supposedly from an oscar-winning writer/director. It could be Seven Psychopaths or The Company You Keep, and no one even cares about the latter.

  2. Even the Oscar-nominated films tend to be trash. They create the “buzz” for themselves and then the Academy obliges. I didn’t realize DJANGO was Oscar-bait, hope it’s not the disaster…I don’t like Tarantino films but this one I’ve been waiting for.
