The film: The Human Experiment
The projected nomination: Best Documentary
Sean Penn narrates this unnerving doc that explores the harmful chemicals in our household products and the detrimental effects they can have on our health and fertility. Basically An Inconvenient Truth, but about chemicals.
The film: Gloria
The projected nomination: Best Foreign Language Film
Chile has submitted this film into the race, and we can see why: It stars South American actress Paulina Garcia as a 58-year-old divorcée whose attempts to defy her age and find companionship are at once amusing and heart wrenching.
The film: Dallas Buyers Club
The projected nomination: Jared Leto for Best Supporting Actor
After taking a five-year hiatus from acting, Leto returns to the screen as
Rayon, an HIV-positive transsexual who teams up with Matthew McConaughey’s character, a formerly homophobic AIDS patient smuggling and selling foreign drug treatments.
The film: August: Osage County
The projected nomination: Meryl Streep for Best Actress
They might as well just name the statuette Meryl. We can’t wait to see her as Violet Weston, the strong-willed matriarch of a beyond dysfunctional Oklahoma family, in this film based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play.
The film: 12 Years a Slave
The projected nomination: Best Picture
The buzz is pretty much deafening for this drama directed by Steve McQueen about a free black man who is kidnapped and sold into slavery. We’ll be so bold as to predict it’s going to win the whole shebang.
Cannes shmannes. For the past four years, the Mill Valley Film Festival has premiered the films that have won the Oscars for Best Picture (remember The Artist?!). And the 2013 lineup is looking as golden as that statuette.
Here’s a rundown of the movies we’re most excited to see, as well as our bets for what and who will be nominated. Read it and you’re virtually guaranteed to win your office Oscar pool.
