O’Neil-Feinberg Kick-Around

It takes a while for Gold Derby‘s Tom O’Neil and Hollywood Reporter award-season columnist Scott Feinberg to mention Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street as a late-to-the-table but formidable Best Picture contender, which of course it is. (Isn’t it?) Feinberg is still predicting 12 Years A Slave to win and O’Neil is still betting on Gravity. Minor complaint: Feinberg’s voice sounds a little bit murky.

    It seems like, if we sum up the past 72-96 hours, the biggest winners have been Her & the late Gandolfini’s award prospects, and the biggest losers are probably All is Lost and the two Hanks films. …. Verdict remains out on the jockeying among Gravity, Hustle, Wolf, Slave….

    Jeff’s enthusiasm for “The Wolf of Wall Street” left me with a want to see soon attitude. I just hope he finds or has found some allies. My mail today brought the Entertainment Weekly Dec. 13, Top 10 issue . EW has two 10,year’s best films lists and Wolf of Wall Street is missing from both. Owen Gleiberman gives number one to 12 Years a Slave, followed by American Hustle, Before Midnight, Fruitvale Station, Gravity,Blue Jasmine, The Past,World War Z, Prisoners and Inside Llewyn Davis. Chris Nashawaty has Before Midnight in the number one position ,followed by Gravity, 12 Years A Slave, Fruitvale Station, Captain Phillips, Enough Said,Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay, Out of the Furnace, All is Lost and The Conjuring. I’m just hoping it warms up here in the north before Christmas. At the moment you plug your car in at night and pray it will start in the morning.Moviegoing is a tougher deal.
