Oscars: “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” a human journey – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: That uppercut to the gut we’ve been waiting for all awards season? It finally arrives in the form of young Thomas Horn.

Full reviews still have to be held until closer to release date, but I’m currently allowed to comment on the awards hopes for the film, which moved me in ways I certainly didn’t expect.

Warner screened the film late, which might have led to the goose egg from the Golden Globes. The Broadcast Film Critics Association responded to this film’s intense gravitational pull, awarding it with four nominations including Best Picture, Best Young Actor (for Horn), Best Director (for Daldry) and Best Adapted Screenplay (for Roth). And I’m hoping Oscar recognizes the film and its talent.

Daldry’s an Oscar veteran. That’s an understatement. When it comes to the Best Picture and Director races, Daldry’s a perfect three-for-three. If the Academy’s paying a bit of attention, he has a very good chance of going four-for-four in those two (and several other) categories come January.
