Yeah, I haven't seen any of the nominations yet but that is the only one I can see myself wanting a poster for.

Bout to watch that tonight actually. Screener quality so I am looking forward to it. So far my favorite flick this year is Wolf of Wall Street. I thought Leo and Jonah were awesome in the movie. Not sure what everyone else thought but I definitely liked it better than American Hustle. AH was a good movie and I thought Jenifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper were great in that movie.
Haven't seen AH yet but will get around to it soon. So far i was most entertained by Wolf but i think 12 Years a Slave will win over it. I think Gravity will be the one nobody saw coming. Dallas Buyer's Club was also great. Still need to watch Her which is supposed to be very well done as well.

A lot of Oscar competition seemed to have come out of nowhere especially for best actor

American hustle was underwhelming. I was entertained but the movie was disappointing. Not sure why it's receiving as much praise as it is. I don't think it's one of the best of the films of the year.
:shock: Did you hear that? Did you? That was the sound of a friendship that just died! :?

I did too. I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed. Really solid flick.

@jal9000. We already consummated our friendship so your purpose has been served. ;) On to the next one.

honestly didn't dislike AH I just didn't think it was good enough to be getting all the attention it's received. Entertaining flick with some solid acting but I just didn't feel like it was one of the best movies of 2013.

It's appalling to me to see American Hustle listed there. If I needed an annual reminder as to why I don't watch these awards, that would be it this year.

American Hustle was wildly entertaining.

If Oscar nominations upset you, and you're not an actor/director/producer that feels like they were snubbed, you need to chill the drymount out. And if you're an actor/director/producer and you feel like you were snubbed, try harder next time, and console yourself in that very few other occupations hand out awards for people simply doing their jobs.

Semi truth.

I got a plaque and a whataburger coupon for employee of the month in December :shock:

Just seemed to lack an original idea throughout. Its not a bad movie by any stretch, just Uninspiring. Id just demand more from a "best picture" nominee, that's all.

I honestly don't get all the hate for American Hustle. It's a film that was universally acclaimed by critics, and one that audiences generally liked. It's not like they nominated a film like Extremely Loud and Incredibly close, which was not well received. I guess I'm not so much defending the film, but the hate on the nomination.

Would you say it was a star studded hit? The must-see film of 2013? ;)

Pretty much exactly what it was. A film that is money in the bank for Hollywood. Probably why the critics loved it so much too.
