    Re: Oscar nominations are out

    I saw a piece on Facebook about the NY Times' article from 1853 on Northup and his story. I wondered, since as a local library patron and can search the Enquirer's archives, if they had anything from back then too. Here's an advertisement from the Nov 30, 1853 edition for the book "Twelve Years A Slave".

    If Before Midnight were to win for anything, it should have been for its screenplay...

    Yeah I think it missed the deadline entirely. We'll see if anything turns up next year (I'm guessing buzz will be long dead by then).

    I am afraid to see Before Midnight. I am too invested in Jesse and Celine to have no more of their story waiting for me onscreen, assuming this is the last installment.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Actually it was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. Hard to argue with the ultimate winner, "12 Years a Slave."

    Sorry, I wasn't clear -- I meant Blue Is the Warmest Color missed the deadline and was ineligible. (Although I'm actually still unclear on that -- it definitely was not eligible for Best Foreign film, not sure beyond that).

    I recently watched all three in a row. It only takes about 5 hours. And there is an argument to be made that Midnight is actually the best of the series. Compared to the hopeful idealism of the first two, the third has the deepest themes. It's the most "real life" oriented as the fantasy has been replaced by an everyday reality, and it deals with the consequences that come with actually getting what you want. Hawke and Delpy are at the top of their games, and that 30 minute fight scene was masterfully done. It's a masterpiece.
    Choo got it, dude.

    Ah, I see. Thanks for clarifying.

    Re: Oscar nominations are out

    Filing this under the "better late than never" category, the NY Times issued a correction to their 1853 story, as someone commented to them on Twitter that they had misspelled Northup's name in both the headline and the article itself.
