  1. MickyFlip says

    12 Years A Slave = Much deserved.

    Not only was it based on an actual New York Bestselling memoir back in the late 18th Century aka US history. But also showed the dark atrocities of slavery when free men of color were still enslaved by means of deception. The film was an actual story.

    What bothers me was that it took this film to be made to remind us of this lost memoir which was a bestseller alongside Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin. I find it troubling that Madame Stowe’s book was taught in class but not this one made into a film that I have never heard of till now. To me personally, this is an essential piece of literature that SHOULD be taught as well. In fact, never even forgotten. I’m so happy this story was finally told.

  2. will says

    Mickeyflip: Solomon Northup’s 1853 memoir fell into obscurity for over 100 years and was rediscovered in the 1960s, so it’s probably not the fault of teachers his book went unmentioned (many only know of it now because of the film). The Frederick Douglass autobiography and Uncle Tom’s Cabin I have seen in bookstores ever since I was a child (though not 12 Years a Slave) — the kids interested in history will find these books without teachers.

  3. RonCharles says

    One should not forget that 78th Academy Awards when Hollywood was able to indulge in both homophobia and in honouring one of its favourite obsessions by denying Best Picture to “Brokeback Mountain,” clearly the best film of the year, and, instead, giving it to “Crash,” a pretentious piece of crap about racial tensions in LA that even featured a racist, white police officer–are there any other kind? Though homophobia was not involved this time, Hollywood’s obsession with race meant that an inferior film beat out the far-superior movie “Gravity.”

  4. peterparker says

    Cate Blanchett over Meryl Streep?! Did the people voting even *see* Meryl in “August: Osage County”? I thought it was, by far, her best performance ever.

  5. will says

    I liked “Brokeback Mountain” when it came out, but I don’t think I could rewatch it. It’s a little dull and tedious. “12 Years a Slave” kept me involved, but is has the patina of being noble and prestige and socially conscious, like “Brokeback Mountain”, and this generally kills off interest for future generations — who wants to watch prestigious socially conscious films of the past like “Judgement at Nuremberg” or “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” They seem nmore like a chore than entertainment.

  6. Paul says

    I saw all 9 nominated films for Best Picture. I liked Gravity the most, but 12 Years a Slave is a decent choice. It’s my third favorite of the nominees behind Gravity and Her. Overall, I’m okay with the choices this year.

    I’m glad Cuaron won two Oscars and that Lubezki finally won after being robbed twice before. I’m also glad Jonze triumphed over Russell.

  7. RonCharles says

    Will, methinks that there are some movies that are both serious and entertaining. One can watch them over again. Just a few that I’ve introduced people to over the years that they have really liked are:

    From Germany, “Downfall” & “Europa, Europa;” from Italy, “Swept Away” & “Cinema Paradiso;” from France, “Indochine:” from Japan, “Throne of Blood;” and from Hollywood itself, “Chinatown.” Those are just a few that quickly spring to mind.

  8. Mike says

    I was surprised host Ellen was so upfront about it within the first ten minutes of the show: “Of course, if “Twelve Year a Slave” wins tonight, it’s proof you’re not racists.” You know what would be something: if they sat there in that 2500 seat audience and actually let the public choose the Best Picture from their list of nominees. Seriously when I saw 12, it was a Saturday night and that’s how many people were in the theater. It was v good, not Best Picture.

  9. Keith says

    12 Years was the best movie of the year. If popularity is a measure of greatness, prepare yourselves for Oscars being excepted by the stars of Jackass. i thought Ellen was a little boring and McConaughey struck me, as usual, as a pompous egocentric blowhard.

  10. MIke says

    “”If popularity is a measure of greatness, prepare yourselves for Oscars being excepted by the stars of Jackass.””

    BS. Let the ACADEMY choose the nominees for Best Picture and get public input on the winner. It might be a true surprise instead of Weinstein politics getting “Shakespeare in Love” over “Saving Private Ryan”. What the hell is wrong with “Gravity” being chosen Best Picture if the Academy chose it and it made more money than the other nominees combined at the box-office.

  11. anon says

    They really need to add three new award categories:

    Best marketing campaign.

    Best viral marketing campaign.


    Best Oscar campaign.

    Why should these people not get an award??

  12. crispy says

    Mike, they already have that. It’s called the People’s Choice Awards. Adam Sandler won in the acting categories, so you’re a fool if you think letting the public vote would result in anything other than horrible choices.

  13. MIke says

    “”Mike, they already have that. It’s called the People’s Choice Awards. Adam Sandler won in the acting categories, so you’re a fool if you think letting the public vote would result in anything other than horrible choices.

    POSTED BY: CRISPY | MAR 3, 2014 10:15:10 AM””

    What part of “let the Academy choose the nominees for Best Picture” then let the public help chose the winner don’t you get?

  14. Bryan says

    @ELWOODL–12 Years a Slave didn’t really have the best ensemble acting (I’d argue Lupita’s award was more of the typical “pretty ingenue” recognition it often bestows, even though other performances were better), or the best script, or the best cinematography, or the best score, etc. But it was an Important Film and not really weak in any of those areas, and so it won under the voting system in place. It probably had a similar number of first place votes as Gravity but more second place votes. I could see Gravity getting a lot of third and fourth place votes from those in the academy who hate anything they perceive as effects driven.

  15. Zlick says

    BTW, Best Picture is alone in all the categories in being scored by a ranking system of Top 10 lists, instead of a direct vote for winner. It’s rather complicated, and can have some odd results.

    And there are far more “technical” awards than others, so a tech-heavy film like Gravity can win a lot more than, say, a fantastic actor and screenplay film like American Hustle, which was sadly shut out entirely.
