Lmfao. Was that crazyfists or HBT's argument?
HBT, of course.
MEW is still waiting for an invite.
Gurus o' Gold: November 30
1. Jennifer Lawrence - Silver Linings Playbook (59 pts)
2. Jessica Chastain - Zero Dark Thirty (55 pts)
3. Marion Cotillard - Rust and Bone (29 pts)
4. Quvenzhane Wallis - Beasts of the Southern Wild (19 pts)
5. Emmanuelle Riva - Amour (13 pts)
6. Naomi Watts - The Impossible (12 pts)
7. Helen Mirren - Hitchcock (7 pts)
8. Keira Knightley - Anna Karenina (1 pt)
No one else with any votes
I don't think Knightley should use her fame to get interesting films by new directors made. 90% of the time, they suck anyway, which has proven true with ALL of Knightley's first time directors. She should use her fame to get interesting films made by the likes of Von Trier, Van Sant, John Cameron Mitchell and Jonathan Glazer. Often they need someone with fame to champion them in order to get their passion-projects funded.
1. Jennifer Lawrence
2. Jessica Chastain
3. Q. Wallis
4. Naomi Watts
5. Emanuelle Riva (hopefully)
6. Marion Cotillard (even though she's campaigned harder than almost any actress I've ever seen...there seems to be not a single talkshow nor event she hasn't been too the last few months...damn.) So she's close only due to her massive campaigning.
7. Keira Knightley
8. Helen Mirren
9. Judi Dench
No, Zac, I'm going with my Nanny.
But on Dec 6th, they had:
1. Davis (69 pts)
2. Streep (65 pts)
3. Williams (53 pts)
4. Close (27 pts)
5. Theron (24 pts)
6. Swinton (11 pts; 8 mentions)
7. Mara (11 pts; 4 mentions)
8. Olsen (10 pts)
9. Jones (3 pts)
So, their top 4 + #7 (Mara) turned out to be correct. If they had published Best Actress a few days before NYFCC/NBR, though, Swinton wouldn't be in there, so Mara probably would've been #6.

I think it's crazy to have Cotillard higher than Watts, but what do I know?
Looks like Riva has Legend Kidman's vote:
Read more at http://www.hitfix.com/awards-campaig...Hzh9wKCvktE.99Q: As someone who has been the awards season game yourself many times over the years do you have any favorites?
‘Amour.’ ‘Amour.’ I am just in love with that film. I love Michael Haneke. That film to me is just a masterpiece. Have you seen it?
Q: Yes, oh yes.
I’ve only seen it once because it was so powerful it went into part of my psyche. I think just to do with the subject matter and how he handled it. And the performances are blindingly good.
Q: And Emmanuelle Riva in particular is quite good.
Oh, yes! I start crying when I think of her. I hope people see it because it’s one of those things where it needs [exposure and publicity] for people to see it. I know it won the Palm d’Or and all that, but those sort of films need people to go. I’m a huge, huge fan of his and I think this is one of his best movies.
Yeah, I actually think Riva is moving into locked territory at this point, which is really cool.
That's silly, the Kidman can't cry.
I'm not surprised at all that Kidman is a Haneke fan. She would do amazing work with him.
She's still my #5 though. Still predicting:
With Wallis/Cotillard on the cusp. Cotillard is such a tricky case to me though. I wouldn't have any faith in a nomination for her if it weren't for the fact that she's Marion Cotillard + SPC. The film and the performance are just too far removed from Oscar.
