If I had to bet now, I'd say this will be the clear winner at this year's Oscars for basically everything.

Wouldn't surprise me. Ever since the cast was released - and, obviously, with McQueen as director - I've thought this movie was destined for greatness. I hope it lives up to the hype, and I expect it will. I also hope people don't dismiss it as race-baiting or Oscar-baiting - it will be so much more than that!

I hate to call it "Oscar bait" because it has such a negative connotation. McQueen is far better than that. But it should win a shitload for it's subject matter alone.

McQueen is legit. No doubt this movie is legit as well.

i dont consider oscar bait a negative term in all cases. there are some movies that are written with oscars in mind (like cinderella man and lincoln). this is not one of those. it will win a lot of oscars, and i think it will be good.

when i say oscar bait, i mean it has a lot of characteristics that the academy likes

Ugh...

I thought McQueen would get someone better than Zimmer....he's wrong for this type of movie imo..

Really good book. If I went to the movies I'd go for sure. Will definitely catch on Blu-ray

"12 Years a Slave" offers no false Hollywood catharsis"

Refreshing.
