    No not Lawrence please,that movie was beyond overhyped, her performance was good but not award winning good, Jessica Chastain deserves it this year, Rach did amazing in Deep Blue Sea but it wasn’t popular enough

    I’m surprised Leo won, has anyone even seen the film? Strange.

    hmmm Says:

    Uh this is bizarre. How are these actors winning these accolades and when some of these films have not even been released yet?

    I think the Academy will leave many in for a shock and start awarding people out of the ballpark just to keep people on their toes.

    Jennifer Lawrence vs Jessica Chastain (Academy Award for Best Actress)
    most probably…

    @hmmm: They have until December 31st to be in consideration for the Oscars. The film is previewed of course, actually submitted by the studio, in Leo’s case Miramax. At least he got something but I dont want him to win anything until he changes his ways on a personal level. Sorry, dont. .But wouldnt be surprised if he did nab a supporting, especially a supporting NOM from the Academy, just to have him bitchslapped again with a nom but no statue…

    What do the National Board of Review Awards tell us about the Oscars?
    Overall, this is a list of winners to be looked at as just that, winners. The National Board of Review is more likely to help a film get a nomination, but don’t look at a perceived “snub” or omission as a sign a film is losing favor in the race.
    Because the NBR is one of the first awards of the season, their members often don’t see late entries into the derby that eventually figure into the Oscar race. Last year, as with the New York Film Critics Circle, the NBR voters did not see “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” which landed a Best Picture bid. Two years ago, they missed out on “Blue Valentine” and “Rabbit Hole” which reaped Oscar bids for leading ladies Michelle Williams and Nicole Kidman respectively.
    And sometimes the NBR members just don’t take to films which end up being Oscar contenders.

    Leo won’t be nominated for an Oscar. He was lucky to get this thing, whatever this is. There are way too many good supporting roles for him to win this year or even be nominated.

    Jessy Says:

    @hmmmm because movies have been screening for critics before been released

    @Pat: @Pat: I’m agree with Pat :

    National Board of Review Winners 2011 (last year):
    Best actor: George Clooney
    Best actress: Tilda Swinton
    Best supporting actor: Christopher Plummer
    Best supporting actress: Shailene Woodley

    AND… Academy Award Winners 2011 (last year) :
    Best actor: Jean Dujardin
    Best actress: Meryl Streep
    Best supporting actor: Christopher Plummer
    Best supporting actress: Octavia Spencer.

    1/4 (for Christopher Plummer)!
    National Board of Review Award is not the Oscars… So, yes, “this is a list of winners to be looked at as just that, winners.”

    Who ever thought Bradly Cooper would be on the award show circuit? LOL!

    hmmm Says:

    Why even bother with so many of these awards? It has now boiled down to a film not even released that it’s getting an award. Who is nominates a film that hasn’t been made and who is voting for it is all behind the scenes.

    And then these same critics don’t acknowledge half these films don’t have an audience and do dismal at the box office. No wonder they mock films that make money and are favored by audiences, because for sure the list of winners would hardly include any of these so called winners.

    @hmmm: You’re an idiot. There are film screenings. The people that are voting for these awards ATTENDED these screenings, mainly critics.

    YCO Says:

    Bradley Cooper over Daniel Day Lewis?
    They have no credibility. Maybe even Cooper is like ‘WTF!?’

    Mary Says:

    This year’s potential winners’ list is all over.

    Hannah Says:

    YEAH LEO! CONGRATS. Well deserved. Haters can suck it.

    People who vote for these have already seen the film. The film has been screened to critics since last Friday and screenings have been going on ever since.

    As for those questioning Bradley Coopers win well I thought he was fantastic in Silver Linings Playbook and it was the first time I was ever impressed with his acting. I haven’t seen DDL In Lincoln. Based on what critcs are saying I still think is DDL oscar to lose. I doubt Cooper will win an oscar but this is good news for him. Its looking like he will at least get an oscar nomination. I use to hate on Cooper but after watching his performance I changed my mind about him. He’s good in this film. At least watch the film before criticizing him.

    LEOISGAY Says:

    This award is completely useless and meaningless. Don’t get too excited Hannah. No one that has seen it has been allowed to review it and they won’t for another 10 days, and people who have seen it praise other other actors more than Leo. They gave it to him because it was a novelty to see him in a the role as a villain. That’s it. I doubt he’s that great in the film.

  25. 25
    Steven Says:


    Keep telling yourself that. I can already tell you’re a freaking idiot based on your username. Get a life. Many people have already said he is fantastic in the film. All the tweets praising Leo’s performance can be found on IMBD. By the way last year’s winner Christopher Plummer went on to win the oscar. So they are not as useless as you think. Is a great indicator of who might get nominated. This win just makes me more excite to see his performance. Educate yourself moron.
