Oscar Predictions

2013 Oscar Predictions: First Look at Best Picture

'Les Miserables' stands at #1, but this race is far from over

2013 Oscar Predictions: Best Adapted and Original ScreenplayWe end this first week of predicting the 2013 Oscars with Best Picture. While we still have a long way to go before the Oscars air on Sunday, February 24, 2013 and things are certain to change, we have to start somewhere and with Best Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Adapted Screenplay and Original Screenplay under our belts it's time to take the opening stab at the one award we will all have our eyes on over the course of the next five months.

I don't know if it will help with the conversation, but any kind of perspective I think adds to the conversation, so here's a list of the last ten Oscar winners before we take a look at this year's crop of contenders:

  • 2012: The Artist
  • 2011: The King's Speech
  • 2010: The Hurt Locker
  • 2009: Slumdog Millionaire
  • 2008: No Country for Old Men
  • 2007: The Departed
  • 2006: Crash
  • 2005: Million Dollar Baby
  • 2004: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
  • 2003: Chicago

I don't know about you, but looking over that list it strikes me at how upset we sometimes get over the eventual Best Picture winner, believing it wasn't entirely deserving and how sometimes we believe the Academy gets it "right". Yet, when you look over the list of the last ten Oscar winners I think it reminds you of not only the films that won, but, in some instances those that lost. When you see The King's Speech can you help but not be reminded of The Social Network? Does Slumdog Millionaire not remind you of the year both The Dark Knight and WALL-E were not nominated for Best Picture? Does Crash not remind you of Brokeback Mountain and Chicago of Gangs of New York and The Pianist?

So, while the eventual winner is typically the safe and expected choice among the nominees, and not always the one most film fans are passionate about, it's clear the films of each year are not forgotten. So don't look at these predictions as the film that is necessarily the "best". Have fun predicting what a group made up of largely 60+ year-old white males will declare the best film of the year.

And with our introduction out of the way, let's begin...

Les Miserables posterOnly eleven days ago my Best Picture predictions had a different winner. Out of Toronto, Silver Linings Playbook and Argo certainly captured the conversation. Since then, the hype has settled down, reality has set in and Les Miserables has emerged as the default front-runner sight unseen.

For those of you that want to quickly rush and say, "But if no one has seen it how can it be the front-runner?!!?!? I don't get it!" To you I say, these are predictions, it's the very nature of predictions to predict that which cannot be known. Based on Academy history and what melts their hearts and gains their attention, the idea of a musical adaptation of one of the most famous written works ever, boasting a technique in which the actors sing live on set and featuring a seemingly perfectly tailored cast is a film many will look at as a clear Oscar front-runner. Of course, quality does play a role, and until the film is seen we will never know for sure, but for now it's a layup to place it at #1.

Don't, however, believe for a second Toronto stars Silver Linings and Argo are out of it as those two fall in my number two and three spots respectively.

My fourth and fifth picks could be flip-flopped, but for now I see Steven Spielberg's Lincoln as the more accessible Academy contender over Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master. It will be interesting to see how the season treats both of these films. The Master could very easily climb depending on how it is campaigned and whether or not the Weinsteins can get Academy members and pundits discussing the film now that it's in theaters and will soon be overshadowed by the major releases to come.

Lincoln to premiere at 2012 AFI FestAs for Spielberg's Lincoln, it will have its coming out party shortly. It's been rated by the MPAA, which means it's completed and will begin screening in New York and Los Angeles with screenings for various critical orgs around the country soon enough.

Next I have a couple of early year indie features in Beasts of the Southern Wild and Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom. Both have enjoyed critical acclaim and Moonrise had an excellent box-office run as it will make its way to DVD and Blu-ray mid-October and hopefully continue to gain traction. Both of these films, however, feel like wild cards that could very easily be overlooked as some major releases are right behind them.

Life of PiFirst is Ang Lee's Life of Pi, which will actually have its coming out party only a few hours after the posting of this article at the New York Film Festival and reaction to that screening could very easily change these predictions only hours after they're posted. In fact, Variety's Justin Chang has already posted the first review and opens it with the following paragraph:

A literal crouching tiger is merely one of many visual wonders in Ang Lee's Life of Pi, a gently transporting work of all-ages entertainment that melds a harrowing high-seas adventure with a dreamy meditation on the very nature of storytelling. Summoning the most advanced digital-filmmaking technology to deliver the most old-fashioned kind of audience satisfaction, this exquisitely beautiful adaptation of Yann Martel's castaway saga has a sui generis quality that's never less than beguiling, even if its fable-like construction and impeccable artistry come up a bit short in terms of truly gripping, elemental drama.

Should I already move it up the ladder?

And to close out what I see to be a list of nine nominees at this point I have Joe Wright's Anna Karenina gaining the final, and tentative, slot on the list. It's a film I did not like, but as I said, predicting Oscars isn't about our taste, but the taste of the Academy and I think there just might be enough support for this one to find it among the final nominees... for now.

There is still plenty of competition just outside my top nine and things could change very quickly. Also playing the New York Film Festival is Robert Zemeckis' Flight starring Denzel Washington. It could easily become a major contender depending on early reactions.

I have Michael Haneke's Amour on the outside looking in at this time as I'm not sure the tough subject matter and foreign nature of it will win over the Academy. In fact, another film that takes a tough subject and puts a lighter spin on it in The Sessions could very easily trump Amour's chances.

Jamie Foxx in Django UnchainedQuestion marks such as the unseen Hitchcock, Zero Dark Thirty and Django Unchained continue to loom, the latter of which is now rumored to potentially make its debut at the Rome Film Festival beginning on November 9. The film doesn't hit theaters until Christmas Day and there is talk of a long editing process, but an Italian debut sounds rather appropriate given the nature of the product.

Other films to be considered include The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Considering all three Lord of the Rings films earned Oscar nominations when the field was made up of only five nominees is it possible The Hobbit will miss out when there are ten? Right now I have it in 13th position, but that could very easily jump to #10 or higher as films are seen and begin to fall by the wayside. After all, wouldn't the Academy love to get a few more eyeballs on their ceremony by awarding such a beloved product in the hopes it would pick up where Return of the King left off?

The Hobbit, however, is not my biggest question mark, that belongs to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. I have not seen this film but it has a 77% RottenTomatoes rating and made over $131 million worldwide earlier this year. Not to forget it includes the likes of Tom Wilkinson, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy among its cast. Could this be the one film all Oscar prognosticators are foolishly overlooking?

Everything said, you can check out my full list of 21 current contenders right here. I have included my top nine directly below and you can browse all my predictions so far right here.

We still have a ways to go, but we have jumped out of the starting gate. Let's see where the race takes us.

  1. Les Miserables
  2. Silver Linings Playbook
  3. Argo
  4. Lincoln
  5. The Master
  6. Beasts of the Southern Wild
  7. Moonrise Kingdom

    Again, that Top Five seems a reasonable starting point until clearer receptions emerge.

    At the moment I don't have anything that I 'want' to have win only because I have seen none of them at present. I can get behind the logic of the Academy wanting to get behind a big studio picture and 'Les Miserables' certainly appears to be heading towards ticking all the right boxes.

    But certainly 'Lincoln' could slide..........'Life of Pi' could rise............usual stuff.

    Anna Karenina won't get in... There is no way is getting in with so many movies getting so much love.

    Beasts of The Southern Wild, The Master, Moonrise Kingdom, Argo, Silver Linings Playbook, and now Life of Pi all have incredible reviews. There is no place for a movie in the lineup if there is no equal passion for it. It just is such a strong year for film. I think is going to be very difficult to get a best 10 list this year with such an ecclectic mix of outstanding movies.

    I still have faith that Looper might get the Sci-Fi vote from the academy (which is not saying much, I know).

      And I don't think Best Exotic has any chance at BP. A couple noms supporting actress noms may be possible though.

  • https://cinemaconfessions.com Gautam

    What's the reason of the faith in Anna Krenina ? It's been not universally accepted ( RT of 70). Niether can I see it as something which is paticularily suited to Academy tastes. If I not wrong Brad, I think you are going by Joe Wright's reputation.

  • https://cinemaconfessions.com Gautam

    Meanwhile my Prediction

    1. Les Miserables
    2. The Master
    3. Argo
    4. Silver Linings Playbook
    5. Lincoln
    6. Beasts of Southern Wild
    7. Amour
    8. Life of Pi
    9. The Impossible

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/AS/ AS

    Django FTW

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Will-E/ Will-E

    I think it will be eight noms, I agree with your top 7, Brad, order aside. I've got The Hobbit as 8 instead of Pi.

  • Unknown/Anonymous

    If the predictions remain the same up until the noms are announced, then what we could be in for is a repeat of 2002. Think about it:

    A musical wins Best Picture
    The Picture and Director prizes were split
    Two different films win the screenwriting awards
    (Unless Rise of the Guardians does massively well) A non-CGI film wins BAF oscar

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/ Brad Brevet

      Yup, I mentioned the 2003 Oscars just yesterday in my screenwriting predictions.

    • Jack

      That was my exact thought.

      Les Miserables for Best Picture
      PTA for Director
      Either Hawkes or Phoenix for Actor

    • http://hypethemovies.wordpress.com Jordan B.

      By "two different films win the screenwriting awards," do you mean that the screenwriting winners won't be a BP or Director winner?

  • Liathach

    Brad, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has no chance; it's slight and sugary and really quite ridiculous.

    Everyone is convinced Les Mis is going to be a success, but didn't everyone have high hopes for Nine, which turned out to be a huge disappointment? I know the source material is far stronger, but still, musicals can flop horribly...

    • Michael Dalton

      Couldn't agree more. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND how anyone could be talking up The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Ridiculously neat and tidy, dumbed-down beyond all belief, and with very average performances (with the exception of Smith & Wilkinson), this movie even turned off my 73 year-old mother who's a fan of these actors and definitely part of the demographic this nonsense was aimed at. And Dev Patel? Don't get me started on his hyper "performance". The whole thing reminded me of The Love Boat. Definitely one of the worst in a very dismal year for movies.

  • Arturo

    Great Pics Mr. Brevet. Moonrise Kingdom is one of the best films I have seen this year but don't think it will make the Oscars. I see it making the Golden Globes though.

    1) Les Miserables- good points on this post
    2) Silver Linings Playbook- wouldn't be too surprised if it won , based on early word
    3) Argo
    4) The Master
    5) Lincoln
    6) Beasts of the Southern Wild
    7) Life of Pi
    8) Zero Dark Thirty

    possibilities
    9) Django Unchained- you got it a bit too low imo
    10) The Hobbit: An Unexpeted Journey

  • Jacob

    Yeah, I have a feeling too that it is "Les Miserables" the movie that will prevail, but I think there ain't be a repeat for Tom Hooper, not this early. Just like exactly 10 years ago, there is a high chance the best picture goes to a musical, but the only other mayor award it will receive will be best supporting actress (for Hathaway), since there is little chance Academy will give best director to the same director only 2 years after winning, and the adapted screenplay category has more "serious" or acclaimed contenders in race, like "Argo" or "Silver Linings Playbook", or even "Lincoln".

    In second place I just can't see "Silver Linings", this is just a very contemporary film with a simple plot and no "wow" factor, nothing extraordinary to be recognized, in a year with a considerable amount of period and controversial-like films, expensive, epic and magnificent productions, there a plenty of another films more likely to be considered for the silver medal. I'd put either "Lincoln" or "Argo" in the second spot.

    And "Anna Karenina" won't be in, it may be a grand period film based on a classic novel, but as I said there are several more pictures more likely to be preferred, and there is just no room left for Karenina.

    The locks so far I'd say are (in order of likelihood to win):

    1.- Les Miserables
    2.- Lincoln
    3.- Argo
    4.- The Master
    5.- The Silver Linings Playbook

    (Maybe this would have been the 5 nominees had Academy keeped the old 5 nominations structure)

    Then the next 5 in line would be:

    6.- Beasts of the Southern Wild
    7.- Zero Dark Thirty
    8.- Life of Pi
    9.- Django Unchained
    10.- The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

    Probably there won't be 10 potential nominees list won't be completely filled, so I think both Django and Hobbit will be the ones left out.

    I'm predicting 9 films for best picture:

    1. Silver Linings Playbook (the frontrunner right now?)
    2. Argo (lock)
    3. The Master (lock)
    4. Les Miserables (has to be good of course)
    5. Lincoln (mostly a lock, if War Horse can get in..)
    6. Flight (mere guess, we'll see after NYFF)
    7. Life of Pi (of course)
    8. Anna Karenina (could go either way)
    9. Beasts of the Southern Wild (I don't know about this one)

    Dark Horses:
    Django Unchained, Promised Land, Zero Dark Thirty, Cloud Atlas, The Sessions, Moonrise Kingdom, and The Impossible.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Andrew13/ Andrew13

    Currently I have 9 films making the cut:

    2. Argo
    3. The Silver Linings Playbook
    4. The Master
    5. Life of Pi
    6. Lincoln
    7. Beasts of the Southern Wild
    8. Django Unchained
    9. Amour

    Just Missing Out: The Impossible, Moonrise Kingdom, Anna Karenina, The Sessions, Flight.

  • Melanie

    I'm among those who saw the Life of Pi this morning, and yes, it should be moved up. In fact, I'd call it a front runner.

  • tombeet

    Again, how's about "Inside LLewyn Davis"? Will It come out this year?

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/ Brad Brevet

      "Will It come out this year?"

      Without a distributor it's tough to say yes.

      • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/AS/ AS

        Yes.

  • chriscarmichael

    Of the past 10 winners for Best Picture I would only say 2 of them were very good/ great (Departed/ LOTR) .2 were good/ very good (Million Dollar Baby/ No Country). 2 of them I would say were amongst the worst films of the past decade released theatrically (Chicago/ the Artist). The rest were ok but didn't even deserve to be nominated for Best Picture. This year the Only film I have seen that deserves to be nominated is Dark Knight Rises. I dont think it will be though. The Master and Moonrise Kingdom were both disappointing to me and were both toward the bottom tier of each respective Andersons body of work.
    Beasts better not be anywhere near the Oscars that's all I will say on that title. Life of Pi looks super lame. Les Mis is gonna be a bomb and forgotten by all except for the Globes I think. The silver Linings Playbook trailer I saw was horrendous and I love Russell films. Hope the movie is a lot better than that trailer leads me to believe.
    So i really think that we need some exciting movies that deliver and impress. Hobbit, Skyfall, Cloud Atlas, Lincoln, This is 40 and especially Django Unchained all have my hope and faith that they can deliver.

  • Chris

    Looks like Les Miserables will be this years The Artist. A movie that takes no chances and appeals to the old fucks running the academy. The last best picture winner I lived was The Departed and have been disappointed since.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Travis/ Travis

      I fail to see how being an entirely sung through musical that was actually sung live on set, something not done before, takes no chances. It's a pretty big gamble. And its fanbase is pretty wide

  • rogerio Silvestre

    "Moonrise Kingdom" is such a beautiful movie, but quite silly! I saw it when it came out, but no desire to re-watch it!.

    "Beast of the Southern Wild" is a very interesting picture! Naturally, I wish I have liked it more, but it's the year's indie film! And I hope it gets the nomination !!

    "Anna Karenina" has no chance to get an Oscar nomination for best picture!. Ok, a film does not need to be good to be nominated but, Joe Wright's film, is a little too much !:(

  • Mark

    Is everyone forgetting that Les Mis is going to be a 2.5 hour musical? No diaglogue just singing and singing. This isn't broadway it's a movie theater. How many people under age 90 want to go watch a musical these days? Big chance it bombs or critics get bored watching it. Silver linings Playbook or Argo is my bet for the win.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Dranderz/ Dranderz

      "No diaglogue just singing and singing."

      Though the stage version is entirely through-sung, have you not considered the possibility that the screenplay includes traditional dialogue? The film could very well only keep the major songs and translate the interludes and whatnot into natural speech.

      Additionally, though stage musicals may be in danger of becoming technologically obsolete SOMEDAY, Les Mis is one of the most popular musicals on the planet, being both high-grossing and critically acclaimed. I'm pretty sure plenty of people "under 90" will want to see it.

      Also, the broadway musical 'The Book Of Mormon', from the creators of South Park, gave Broadway it's best ticket sales EVER in 2011.

      I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss Les Miz.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/Ian/ Ian

    It's starting to feel like Les Mis, Silver Linings, Argo, and The Master are already locks. And if War Horse could get nominated even as terrible as it was, I have a hard time believing Lincoln won't get in as well. After that it really becomes a question of numbers and which films can get that 5% first place vote. I think Moonrise Kingdom is the next safest be, but after that I really don't have much confidence one way or another in many of the other contenders at this early stage. I do think it's very unwise to sleep on Best Exotic, especially given the makeup of the Academy. The Hobbit is an interesting case and I really think it will come down to its quality and reception. If Jackson nails the tone, characters, themes, etc. so well again (even though he'll definitely miss the scale by breaking it into bite-size morsels), I have a hard time seeing the Academy ignore it, especially since it would fill that blockbuster void. Without The Hobbit in there, the only contender to hit $100 million is probably Les Mis (and maybe Django, but I don't think it will be nominated). There's been at least one $100 million earner nominated since the expansion (several in '09 and '10), and The Hobbit will be the best bet to fill that void.

    It's already shaping up to be a three-horse race (at best) between Les Mis, Silver Linings, and Argo. Sure films like Life of Pi and Lincoln could still surprise, but I really have a hunch that the winner is all but guaranteed to be one of those five films.

    I do have to say, just writing these predictions up this week gets me excited for the next few months. There's just no better time of for film that this period that we're starting to move into now.

  • ThePrinceIsOnFire

    Out of those you listed... I can assure you Marigold hotel is out. I've seen the movie and it is a good but not great one. Also to notice is that european critics didn't really fell for it, so trust me it doesn't stand a chance.
    I'm on the fence about "the hobbit".It seems such a plot-empty project that I really doubt the academy will root for.
    Also , Amour should be in top 10, and "Rust and Bone" at least in the bubble line.
    Moreover, I don't feel like "MIserable" is going to win.A nomination is almost out of question...but winning might be too much for such an "hard trying" movie.
    It looks TOO much like it was made to please the academy, and they probably won't fall for it(also Hathaway will have a very hard time winning, mark my words)
    I think the winner it's either going to be a Cannes movie, or underdog "Hitchcock".We shall see.

  • http://running-reel.blogspot.com/ Nika

    I agree with Les Miserables winning best picture. I expect it to be the most spectacular and well played musical lately.

  • Newbourne

    In 2008, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and In Bruges were my favorite films and in 2009, (500) Days of Summer and In the Loop took those honors. None of them were nominated for Best Picture. I know my opinion only matters to me, but I just don't think the Academy awards "the Best picture" anymore.

    Avatar was nominated because it looked pretty. In 20 years, when effects will be even more advanced, Avatar will be looked at with nostalgia-eyes only, and those who see it for the first time will view it for the mediocre film that it really is.

    Same goes for other melodramatic messes like The Blind Side and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close which were nominated for absolutely no good reason.

    And I still don't get the universal love for The Artist. Maybe I just have bad taste which is totally a possibility, but I don't think that film is in my personal top 10 silent films, let alone top 10 anything-else. It was a fun little movie, but nothing worth BEST PICTURE.

    The Oscars don't mean anything to me anymore, and these types of posts just glorify them in a way that makes me sad, because the public has been taught that "Oscars mean quality" when history has proven that is certainly not the case.

    All I have to say is that hopefully 'skyfall' will get at least nominated for best pictire, if not hen I'm also hoping Javier Bardem gets best supporting actor for his role as Raul Silva in skyfall!
