    Cool cool cool!

    Just like the globes. I have no complaints on who won

  • Vivek Subramanyam

    I have a confession to make, guys. I was the one who suggested “Oz the Great and Powerful” as a contender for most obvious use of green screen, but in doing so, I actually cheated.

    The reason is because technically, that film actually barely used green screens at all. Raimi created massive physical sets and used heavily enhanced blue chroma key instead. Though I’ve only recently verified that that was in fact the case, I pitched “Oz” as a contender because I wanted to see how many people would vote for it if they saw it was on the list. The truth is, the “right” answer actually would be “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” That film had a ton of it, and you could see it in the production videos if you ever watched them on YouTube.

  • Tom

    haha wtf. Man of Steel was soo not that bad. . . .

  • FTS_NICK!

    gotta agree with Vern here… and some of these awards make me want to see the movies I’ve missed (The Hunt, Blue is The Warmest Color, World War Z)

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    Actually, about six other people suggested Oz in the nomination stage. And this doesn’t look like a stage… http://i.imgur.com/yc9obY3.jpg

  • Vivek Subramanyam

    The thing is…it might actually be one. That’s what strikes me as kind of bizarre about this film. But I thought I was one of the ones who pitched it first, which is why I figured I might have been responsible.

  • Vivek Subramanyam

    He verified it for me, yeah. But I read a couple articles that all talked about the set, and none of them talked about the green screen. Wikipedia on the film said that they didn’t bother to use it. I read those articles months ago.

  • Rodney

    Cannot understand why Adele Exarchoupolos hasn’t seen any recognition for her work in Blue Is The Warmest Colour. Frankly, I think she gives one of the performances of the year from ANY actor, in my opinion.

  • Rodney

    See Blue Is The Warmest Colour. You won’t regret it.

  • Chris

    Good stuff! Surprised Gravity ran away with the best movie award though. It destroyed everything else!

  • Mark Walker

    Nice! Good to see some love for World War Z

  • jjames36

    Interesting. For the most part, everyone picked some good ones. :-)

  • karamelkinema

    Ugh Oprah. I’m so glad Chiwitel Ejiofor was choosen here hahaha
    By the way that screencap of Cumberbatch mug while doing motion capture is hilarious :D

    So glad to see so many Gravity wins!

  • http://www.videovortex.wordpress.com/ TheVern

    World War Z winning Biggest surprise doesn’t even upset me. It was a big surprise for me. I was surprised at how bored I was with it.

  • Brittani

    Oh my God, I only got 3 right. But still, great winners all around!

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    I checked the polls a couple of days ago as the voting winded down and then as I compiled the list of winners I was shocked by how a few of them drastically changed in numbers. So my own predictions were really off too! lol

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    They weren’t just wins, they were full out epic blow-away victories.

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    I saw the image and just HAD to use it.

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    Indeed some good choices!

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    I’m happy about that. One of my biggest surprises of the past year as well!

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    I know, right? It wasn’t even close!

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    Too sexy for the Awards. Yet you think that would be compelling to get her votes…

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    I know! I hated putting that up as the biggest disappointment… I liked it a lot.

  • http://www.cinekatz.com/ Nick Powell

    The Hunt is on Netflix now!

  • http://cinematiccorner.blogspot.com/ Sati

    As they should be :)

  • ruth

    I didn’t count how many I voted won, but for sure a few of them. Very sad for Mads and also Daniel Bruhl who are both excellent but no love from Oscar :(
