that's because he SHOULD have been ;)

Oh dear god, I've never noticed how freckly his arms are before. Sigh...

I saw Jane Eyre yesterday for the first time. Unfortunately the experience was totally ruined because we accidentally saw it at a special OAP screening and the constant bloody talking from what felt like every single person in the cinema, meant we missed half the dialogue and were never able to properly engage with the film.

When we came out (about an hour after, when the anger had dissipated), we both agreed we immediately wanted to see it again though. I will definitely be buying the DVD when it comes out although that's a whole month away yet, grrr! And then I'm going to watch it at home, in silence, with the curtains drawn, and NO FOOD! Good God. Old people are worse than teenagers, I tell you. At least kids don't eat SOUP in the cinema.

Back on topic again, I actually feel nervous on Michael's behalf for Sunday. Is that ridiculous?

I agree with Katerina, it's bc he SHOULD have been nominated...

Both Newsweek and TIME thought he would be nominated. AMPAS has egg on their face. It's a travesty.

Rumor has it that Ridley Scott is trying to recruit Michael to star in Cormac McCarthy's much buzzed about original spec script: http://www.deadline.com/2012/02/ridley-scott-commits-to-next-direct-mccarthys-the-counselor-will-michael-fassbender-play-title-role/#more-228999

I am SO excited about the possibility of this.

Flora, soup in the cinema??? never heard of it :))) if it was up to me,there would be NO food of any kind in the cinema, it's annoying!

Ranelle said...

Flora, you must watch Jane Eyre again. It's brilliant and you dont catch all the dialogue's meaning the first time anyway (darn period pieces lol).
As for the Ridley Scott movie, it sounds great to me because of everyone's excitement over the spec script! But if it films in May, isn't that when 12 Years a Slave is filming? I'm just worried we'll get our hopes up and it'll be another project Michael will have to pass on because of timing :( hopefully it works out! Michael would make a great lawyer/ person stuck in the drug trade.

Manuela said...

lets forget about Oscar! we r going to see 2 perfect nights for Fassy (i believe). foto is wonderful he is handsome and seems sad))) really he is very freckly but he is ginger))) i love it. love him much. i really hope all these rumours about new Scott`s project will come true.
Flora - so do i) i really want him to win )

Ranelle: if rumors about Atlanta are true and pre-production for 12YAS has already started, then it may not be long until filming is over (McQueen shot "Shame" in less than a month). So Michael may be free come May.

I just read that link posted above and holy crap, if this movie is really like No Country for Old Men on steroids (Michael would be playing the role of a lawyer who sticks his toes into the world of organized drug distribution but can't extricate himself) then the awards potential would be INSANE. God, if there is a conflict with his schedule, I hope either mcQueen or Scott can rearrange some things to accommodate him.

That Deadline article was poorly written. I will await further information about this before fully commenting. But I do think a Scott/Fassbender film is just what the doctor ordered.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, after Noah and the Jarmusch film not materializing, I'm waiting until we have more solid confirmation before getting excited...

Manuela said...

Simone -angel- r u going to organize chat and give us dtream links for IFTA and BAFTA?

Simone said...

Manuela, I will not have a chat room open. However, I will create on Saturday and Sunday, new blog entries for the IFTAs and BAFTAs, respectively, so that fans can comment about the programs here in the comment queue. Just refresh your screen every few minutes to see if someone has posted a comment.

I have participated in such set-ups at other blog communities, and it's just a good as a chat - but it's not 'instant'. Just more 'manual' on the users end.

Manuela said...

Simone- i meant like was during GG)))) i hope fassinators will be here)))

Simone said...

I know what you meant Manuela, and no, it won't be like that. Just post in the comment section of the new IFTA/BAFTA thread like you are doing now. Whoever shows up, that will be cool. There will be plenty to discuss. :)

Manuela said...

and no stream links?

Simone said...

If there are some available, I will post them. I will also try to post pictures as quickly as possible too.

I have a nephew that decided to be born later today, so, I'll be driving to the hospital this weekend to meet him and my sister.

Manuela said...

my congratulations)))) wish your nephew and new mom only the best))))))))
and thank you a lot like always)

Another Deadline article: http://bit.ly/AcGAVQ

FOX Searchlight execs basically admit they messed up and that hey don't think AMPAS members could get past the NC-17 rating enough to even watch the screeners.

Simone said...

Thanks anon, I created a new post on that article.

I think the whole acting community thought he was snubbed. And he was totally robbed of a nomination. Not By Bichir or Oldman, but by George Clooney. I have now seen all the nominees, and I would rank them thus:

Gary Oldman~ Winner (tie)
Jean Dujardin~ Winner (tie)
Demian Bichir 2nd
Brad Pitt 3rd
George Clooney 5th

Clooney was decent at best, and utterly unconvincing at worst. He's like Meryl Streep, except, y'know, lacking in talent.
