The Oscar Race Is On! Brad Pitt & George Clooney Both Have Best Picture Contenders!

But who will come out victorious with the top prize?

This weekend was a real good one for Brad Pitt and George Clooney. Each had movies performed outstandingly well with critics and won coveted prizes at two important events.

Los Angeles Film Critics Association declared Clooney's drama The Descendants the best film of the year. However, Brad's Tree Of Life pulled in second at the LAFCA's and then showed everyone who was boss at the San Francisco Critics Awards by winning THREE tops awards, including Best Film. It also won for best directing and best cinematography.

Well, well. What to say about that! The Descendants is strong contender, no question. But perhaps there is more life in the Brad's Tree movie. Perhaps it has what it takes to take home the little, coveted, golden man.

What do U think? Which movie this year deserves the Best Picture award?

    I really loved A Dangerous Method which stars Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen. It's a great movie and all three actors are brilliant. It's too bad it's getting passed over in Oscar attention, because it's not mounting as big a media campaign as these other movies.

    out of those two descendants is better



  3. 3

    Too bad I probably won't be able to see either of these until they come to DVD. Crap like that you plug like Arachnid-Man and Moo-Pits (a puppet version of OWS) is all that's shown unless you live in a major city.

    Yawn…….over both of them….Hollywood needs some new blood…a dangerous method was fabulous!

    TREE OF LIFE IS BOOORRRING AS HELL. HALF OF IT IS JUMBLED KALEIDOSCOPE EFFECT AND THINKING. BUNCH OF EXISTENTIALISM SHIT. BEEN THERE DONE THAT. WHAT A LOT OF INDIE PRODUCERS AND DIRECTORS HAVE DONE FOR YEARS. Zzzzzz!!! BY DEFAULT GOING WITH DESCENDANTS. PROLLY LAME TOO.

    I HEAR "THE ARTIST" IS A SHOE-IN FOR BEST PICTURE NOM. A SILENT FILM PRODUCED WITH MODERN TECHNIQUES AND ACTING. THAT'S DIFFERENT; ARTSY PEEPS LIKE OSCAR VOTERS LIKE THAT KIND OF SHIT. MIGHT WIN.

    If the award is for most boring, Tree of Life wins, hands down.

    when are the globe nominations coming out?

    My vote goes to The Descendants - really good story based on a good book. Have not seen Tree of Life. No one is going to vote for a silent film, sorry, no matter how good it is. The Oscars need to appeal to a wide audience, maybe it will get a golden globe nomination.



  11. 11

    the Descendants - best acting ever by George - movie was good too!



  12. 12

    I like both movies.



  13. 13

    BORING



  14. 14

    honestly the tree of life was so bad some parts were comical.. like the dinosaurs



  15. 15

    Why can't these filthy rich actors retire and let new actors in? Can't Brad & George do Polident & Adult diaper commercials…in Japan?



  16. 16

    bored with both these aging heartthrobs. But I suspect its Clooneys time for an oscar next year. In most of his films he just seems like George clooney.

    OMG Tree of Life was SOOOOO GOOOOD. Most people didn't get it though. Sad. It was beautiful.
