Aren't curses and omens the same thing?
Whilst this is a humourous video, this would/should/won't hold any bearing on DotM and any possible Oscars it might get nominated for.
By that logic, Monsters, University will be banned from any nominations at the 85th Academy Awards simply because Billy Crystal is in this video. AKA, no logic.
But still, cool video, bro!
More of a coincidence I think.
Omens are natural or semi-natural phenomenae that supernaturally portend future events. Sort of like warning signs. Comets, seeing owls during the day, eclipses, crows, that kind of thing. Not all omens are ill, as well, there are good omens too.
Curses are an action or ritual placed by a person (or at least a sentient force) on another person or sentient force for revenge or malice, that by definition has a negative impact.
To me, an omen can go either way like "An Omen of things to come" while a curse is just bad as a whole
While not DOTM specific, I find the casting choices really really odd
I don't think Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox doing the ad for the Oscars will be any fly in the ointment for an effects award because Fox isn't even in Dark of the Moon.
I think the thing that might cost Transformers the award is talk of Transformers 4 directed by Micheal Bay with the return of the same production crew. If Oscar voters think they can give it to a film series next film sometimes they will pass over the film that will get another chance for a film that only has one shot at the award. Just look at how Lord of the Rings got passed over on the big awards until the last movie.
OMFG I love Megan fox and Josh Duhamel. She's so fing hot
I would be stunned if this wins best SFX. I'm still waging on Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Anything else other than TF3 or Planet of the Apes winning, and I know for a fact that the oscars are truly run by a bunch of first class assholes.
I think I may have lost all possible faith in the Oscars when Transformers 2007lost to The Golden Compass.
Currently, I just prepare for the worst.
Meh whatever. I used to be bugged by the fact the Golden Compass beated Transformers in the VFX cateogory four years but now i couldn't care at all.
Oh, silly allusions
I would not be surprised if Oscar will again go past Transformers, but anyway I believe in them, and I will watch the live broadcast at 4 am, as always
How could you have any faith in Oscar voters to begin with. The Oscars have a long track record of bad choices for awards stretching back to the 1930's. Some of Hollywood's most iconic films have been snubbed by the Oscars.
I wasn't much into cinema at that time, 2007 was possibly the first year where I gave attention to the Oscars [because two of my favorite movies were there POTC 3 and TF2007].
Coincidentally, it was also the last. Fate has a sense of irony.
I'm a bit of a film buff and yea the Oscars have been making people mad for a very long time.
An Oscar is nice if a film can get it, but if a film you love doesn't get an Oscar don't feel too bad because a lot of talented people haven't got their amazing work recognized with the little gold guy.
You have a point there, ultimately, for every two wrong decisions the Oscar makes, they make one right [like Christopher Waltz and Jeff Bridges on 2011, to mention a recent example].
