Bit dissapointed that Aaron is the only principle to be left out of the list for possible nominations :(
Enjolras is a good role so I don't see why they're not pushing him for consideration.

I haven't looked in here for a while, so was then gutted to see that the Les Mis screenplay (shooting script) had been accessible and that I had apparently missed it. But, just in case, I did a quick search and found a link to it. So am absolutely delighted to still be able to read it now! And I will relate it to the film in due course with great interest. So not that I am objecting (I think it adds to interest), but what a strange thing to do to publish it?

And thank you Elliot above for the Vogue quote. Doesn't that sound promising! I actually have a little bit of a quibble with certain voice issues on the trailer, but, overall, I think it looks amazing. Well done Tom Hooper! I think you might just have pulled off a bit of a coup, against a lot of people's expectations that it would be impossible to do it well enough. I'm really looking forward to it.. .

I was hoping they'd push Anne up into the Best Actress category to give the others a chance at Supporting, but I guess Fantine really isn't in it enough...

To be honest, I think their only real viable shot at winning a performance Oscar was to push Anne for Supporting Actress. Hugh has a good chance of being nominated for Best Actor but with the competition this year he won't win. Similarly, considering the size of Fantine's part, Anne doesn't have a shot of winning if she goes up as a leading role, but as Supporting Actress I think she has a very good chance of winning based on what we've seen so far and the buzz her performance in the trailers has generated.

Supporting would give her a better shot of winning but it depends who's nominated.

Also I think they're pushing her for best actress for Dark Knight.  It may have been a deal between studios or whatever.

BEST ORIGINAL SONG - "Suddenly", performed by Hugh Jackman


Have I missed something? Does this mean they've added a new song?

Yep. It was in the screenplay released. BIT of a montage song. :)

I've heard that too, but I think it's very unlikely she will be nominated.

I love all this prognosticating from people who have yet to see the film.
