OSCAR WATCH: Margin Call


I saw this film more than a week ago, so it’s not entirely fresh in my mind. I have fond memories though, as “Margin Call” as an excellent film. The film has been picking up some late Oscar buzz following some unexpected success on the video-on-demand medium. Though I think it’s too small to gain any Best Picture traction, I think the entire cast is on their A-game and there are some truly Oscar-worthy performances among the bunch. Its hard to single anyone out, but it seems like Jeremy Irons and Kevin Spacey will get a push for Best Supporting Actor and I can fully support that. That category still seems wide open (the only “lock” right now is Christopher Plummer), so they definitely have a chance. The tight, thought-provoking screenplay contributes greatly to the film, so it might slip in to the Best Original Screenplay category. Only time will tell if this gets its Oscar story. Even without academy recognition this film deserves to be seen, I highly recommend it.
