Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
I can't see any movies so far that have a front runner for Actor or Director. Daniel Day Lewis was great as Lincoln, but the movie was slow as fuck and I was losing interest. The same thing could be said about Hoffman and Phoenix in The Master, the movie was about 30 minutes to long.
Who knows, Leonardo Dicaprio could get a supporting actor nod and win an oscar that way. I can't think of anyone that has been consistently great in movies for the last 15 years and yet hasn't won an oscar.
