The Lamb Devours The Oscars Best Picture

The nominations are here and so are the assignments for this year’s round of LAMB Devours the Oscars. Thanks to the flexibility of everyone who signed up, I was able to get everyone one of their top three choices of categories or films.

There are also several spaces left, so claim them in the comments section here so that people can see what’s still available. If you need ideas, click here for previous Devours articles on the categories. Note that you don’t necessarily need to have seen all the nominees to write an article.

In order to finish the series before the big show, posts will start this week, with an article posted approximately every day. So please get those articles/reviews in ASAP.

    Can I do Production Design?

  2. Tyler says:

    Can I take Amour?

  3. ruth says:

    Hi David, I’d like to take up ARGO. Thanks!

    • nevertooearlymp says:

      Got you down for it Ruth!

      • ruth says:

        So when is the due date exactly?

        • nevertooearlymp says:

          As long as most folks send theirs in sometime in the next week or so we should be ok to get them all done before the Oscars. Hopefully people who have already seen their film or who have categories that are better known can do theirs by that time, and I’ll just line them up in the queue to post one a day. That also allows any folks who get categories like the shorts or late releasing films to have a little more time to catch them in theaters without causing us to go to two a day posts at the end.

  4. Keith says:

    I would like to nab “Lincoln”!

  5. Clarabela says:

    I could also do Best Supporting Actress if no one else wants it

  6. Oh, what the hell. Dibs on lead actor.

  7. I can also do Life of Pi if no one wants it.

    • nevertooearlymp says:

      I want to give as many folks as possible a chance. But if no one else signs up for it in the next day or two then I’ll let you double up with Pi.

  8. SDG says:

    I will jump in too. Supporting Actress or Foreign Film. I am fine with either of them.

  9. ftsnick says:

    Really? No one has called dibs on Django? I’d like Django please.

  10. Dylan Dylan says:

    I want to call live action shorts, but am a bit worried about my flakiness and/or the availability of them for me to see. If someone else is a lock, by all means give it to them, but my plan is to see them whenever I’m able to, and if I do in a reasonable amount of time, I’d happily write something up on them.

    How’s that for non-committal?

    • nevertooearlymp says:

      That’s a pretty popular category Dylan, but I’l say it’s yours until someone offers me a higher bribe. 🙂

      • Dylan Dylan says:

        Haha…yeah, those shorts just fly off the shelves each year. 😉 I was shocked to see that the docs ones was claimed earlier. That’s amongst the hardest to fill each year since it’s never put in theaters or as a part of any shorts program that’s easily accessible (as far as I know).

        • nevertooearlymp says:

          Documentary Feature is filled, but Documentary Shorts ares still open. It is a shame that they never screen those widely though. But it’s a great category for someone who likes to do research, as well as anyone living in LA or NY where there are limited screenings.

          Animated Shorts was actually the very first request I got, so maybe short films are making a come back?

          • Dylan Dylan says:

            Ah, misread that.

            I think they are, at least the nominated ones, anyway. I don’t recall hearing about the Shorts International programs until just the last few years, and they seem to have piqued interest. I’m just not sure if that interest peaked a couple years ago or not. I recall seeing last year that the box office for the programs wasn’t as high last year as it had been in prior years. We’ll see…

  11. vern77 says:

    Jason. Who the hell is Jason? He doesn’t write for the videovangaurd. The only person who does is the one and only TheVern

    • nevertooearlymp says:

      My apologies man! I’d blame it on getting up at 5 AM this morning for the Oscar noms, but the truth is I did the draft last night, so there’s no excuse. 😉

  12. Brittani says:

    I’ll take Best Costume Design!

  13. kevynknox says:

    Fantastic. My post will up and running (and sent to the appropriate persons) sooooooon!!

  14. Marshall says:

    I will take Zero Dark Thirty if no one has claimed it yet!

    Marshall of “Marshall and the Movies”

    • It’s yours Marshall!

      • Marshall says:

        Great … if you don’t mind, I may wait a little bit to submit just because I think the whole torture controversy has still yet to reach any sort of a conclusive end. Martin Sheen and Ed Asner spoke out today, and I get the feeling plenty of others have yet to air their opinions…

        • NTEMP says:

          That works for me. I knew that ZDT wasn’t opening a lot of places until this weekend, so I had already planned on it being a category where someone might need some extra time.

  15. Branden says:

    I can do whatever is left.

  16. A rundown of the categories still available (so that you don’t have to look back and forth through the comments and the list above):

    (Some of these have backups from folks who are already taking another category and are willing to do a second one, but I want to give as many people a chance as possible, so if you haven’t signed up for a category yet you’ll get priority).

    Life Of Pi
    Silver Linings Playbook
    Documentary Shorts
    Foreign Language
    Makeup and Hairstyling
    Sound Editing

  17. I’d like to do a roundtable discussion of Lincoln with myself and Journey’s in Classic Film!

  18. Brittani says:

    I’m willing to do Silver Linings Playbook if no one new picks it.

    • nevertooearlymp says:

      Thanks Brittani. I’m going to leave these open for a little while longer so that everyone has a chance to sign up for one, but if nobody does then this will be yours.

  19. Branden says:

    I’ll do Foreign Language.
