No ZDT, eh? I would be hugely surprised if the quirky, contrarian-minded LACFA picks Silver Linings for Best Picture, and flabbergasted if they go for Lincoln, Argo or Les Miz. The Master has faded and they know it. And Life of Pi and Beasts of the Southern Wild simply don’t have the horses. If they had real vision and brass balls (which of course they don’t) they’d celebrate the mad abandon of Anna Karenina. The only left-field contenders I can think of are The Grey or Looper…is that what you’re thinking, Glenn? One of these?
If I was Rian Johnson…no, fuck that, I’m not Rian Johnson and never will be. Although I sometimes bat tweets his way like it’s a Sunday tennis game with Eric Clapton.
