    I had a feeling that Best Picture was going to be The Artist!

    Nice to see Jessica Chastain get recognition.

    IMO the cinematography of Tree of Life was over the top- unnecessary movements and angles of the camera. There are movies with better (appropriate) cinematography. TOL almost hurt my eyes.

    I had not heard of 'The artist'. I will definitely watch it.

    National Board of review chooses its winners, completely different from those of the NYFCC (and no Meryl).

    I saw a clip of Meryl in the Iron Lady and it really was incredible. The film is not released in Australia yet but I am really looking forward to seeing it.

    Wow! Both lists are interesting and I'm glad that the Potter series was recognized.

    I like that the European awards have a people's choice category. And whether Lars likes it or not he and Susanne Bier share these awards this year. Interesting.

    50/50 was really great, funny and touching. I totally cried.

    I haven't seen The Iron Lady yet, but I did see Albert Nobbs and I'm disappointed that Glenn Close hasn't gotten any awards love yet. She was fantastic and the movie is really heartbreaking. I'd put Janet McTeer in the running for Supporting Actress awards as well.

    I saw 'The Artist' in my film preview film club. I loved it, very fun movie, audience really loved it. We had a discussion afterwards, and it was pointed out how authentic much of the movie was in the making, very respectful to silent movies. Acting was great. I found out the 2 leads are married in real life. I loved how the story was not as you would expect. The Dog was fab, as was John Goodman.

    Jean Dujardin is married to Alexandra Lamy (who doesn't play in The Artist).
    I was also very impressed by the movie, I never expected to enjoy it that much!

    Do you guys think The Artist will win the Oscar for best movie? What's your guess? It's not playing in my area yet.

    It's highly likely to be nominated, but the race is wide open this year. ("The Descendants," "War Horse," "Hugo," "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," "Moneyball," "The Help," "Midnight in Paris" are all other potential nominees).

    "The Artist" is absolutely brilliant, and the best film I have seen so far this year, although I haven't been to the movies as often as I would like. It will be interesting to see if a mostly silent, black and white movie can catch on with a wide audience however. Hopefully it will, because it really is an enchanting delight, and Jean DuJardin is wonderful.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Satellite Award Nominations

    These are Movies and TV awards. Like the Globes and SAG's.

    In the Film Club the guest speaker that is a film expert said this, strange to be wrong on something like that. We had seen Dujardin in another film a few years ago - OSS117 - which was hilarious.

    Re - Oscars - with 10 nominations, I can see this getting nominated. As I said I liked the movie, but it something you can recommend to just about everybody. (not counting a coworker, very young, said 'why would you want to see a silent movie?')

    That's just the wrong association. Bérénice Béjo is the companion of Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist's (and both OSS movies') director. They have 2 kids. The last one is born last September.

    Which OSS 117 did you see ? Rio or Cairo ? Béjo played in Cairo. It was the same trio Hazanavicius - Dujardin - Béjo.

    They have changed the Academy balloting system (again), so there may not be 10 nominees. The minimum will be five, the maximum would be 10, but it could be any number in between as well.
