Today's headlines should be "Inception Was Robbed At The People’s Choice Awards!" Twilight did not deserve to win any of the awards that it did. Especially over the movies that it beat out. Is it better than Inception, Dear John, The Social Network and Alice in Wonderland? No, just no.

Totally agree. :ohno: All mentioned actors have more talent than Robert Pattinson can ever hope of having :dead:

Twilight has a ridiculously loyal fan-base so it always robs these ceremonies. It's pretty much an insult to anybody who is present in the film community. The script for the Twilight movies are usually banged out in 6 weeks with about 2 drafts, Inception took 10 years. :haeh:

Flowers pop up where the body lies, seeds fly out of the flowers and a bee sucks the flowers and makes honey. Then the family of the girl buys the honey from the store. And the family eats the girl.

Yeah i wouldn't get too hopeful about a supporting BAFTA. In its desperate attempts to make the BAFTA awards seem more prestigious than the Oscars they often show favouritism to British endeavours. I'll never forget how utterly emabarassed Mike Leigh was to get the best film award for Vera Drake over Scorsese's The Departed. It's as if they wanted to say 'look, we can get Scorsese over for our ceremony and not even give him anything.'

Christopher Nolan on ‘Inception 2′: “You Never Know”
http://movienewsguide.com/335/news/chri ... ever-know/
If you’re thinking that Inception 2 makes sense..you’re not the only one. In fact, you’re in good company because director Christopher Nolan says a follow-up to the 2010 smash hit, Inception, has “potential.”
What do you think about ‘Inception 2′?

First off, I agree that it's unlikely Ellen will get nominated for Inception, the bit of text at the start of the article sights her as an 'unlikely choice' and I agree. It would be nice but it's virtually impossible for her to beat all of the actresses in that category when the movie wasn't focused on her but the story.

Also, Inception 2? I'd support it if Chris Nolan decides to make it, but I can't see a non-sell-out way of making it which doesn't ruin the ending to the first or take on a whole cast of new characters.

Oh no, please Chris, don't. :shocked: The movie has to stand alone.
It's great as it is, I hope Nolan doesn't make the same mistake the Wachowski's made with The Matrix (even though it was planned as a trilogy).

What I would like to see is a completely different story in the same setting, maybe with Ellen as the lead. :cheekygrin:
The idea of shared dreams has a lot of potential but a sequel would destroy the magic of Inception.

I see it this way - A company like Warner Bros. is interested in making money in the first place. With Inception's box office and DVD/Blu-ray sales success, it's only a matter of time until they approach Christopher Nolan and ask: "What do you need for Inception 2?" He will probably answer: "Good ideas, time, money and some of the people I've worked with before."

One possibility is a prequel. It could show why Dom Cobb is supposed to be the best extractor and the true master of his craft and how he, Arthur, Eames and Nash got together. And its ending is the beginning of the original movie, i.e. include scenes of "The Cobol Job". However, it would be almost impossible to bring Ellen's character back in this sort of story :haeh:

In a sequel I would love to see Arthur, Eames and Ariadne doing their own thing after Cobb's retirement and start to work for Saito for example. They could accept some jobs and then find out there is a traitor in his company. This person, in turn, could be a spy planted by Robert Fischer, who tries to build his own business empire and wants to dominate his competitors.

Like plexus said, the basic idea of shared dreams has a lot of potential, but a second movie would likely ruin the greatness of the first one. In my point of view, there's no real need to re-visit Inception's world. However, since Nolan said he's already working on a video game that would expand the universe, I'm afraid he has many, many ideas in mind which could also become reality on screen :rolleye:

I thought the idea of the video-game was to use some of the ideas about the universe which he couldn't put on film due to complexity?

Inception 2 would work....but Chris Nolan would need to get together with the entire team...not just the actors....but with Hans Zimmer, Wally Pfister, and the others he used for Inception

And, hey, if it means another film for Ellen....I am all for it :D

So Inception which took Nolan 10 years to generate the script, had an incredible international cast and was directed and shot with matchless skill and creativity, was totally snubbed by the Golden Globes. Unbelievable!

...as expected. :( :weeping: The thing I don't understand is why a single movie always gets a bunch of awards at such a ceremony. Why does the "Best Film" winner automatically deserve "Best Screenplay" or "Best Original Score"?!

Considering last night's results, it seems very unlikely Inception wins any Academy award and even Hans Zimmer will leave empty handed this year :grrrr: :grumble:

I'm disappointed by the Golden Globes as well, but I still think there is a great chance that Inception will win at least some technical Academy Awards.

I'm hoping Wally Pfister gets his Oscar at last for cinematography. I knew Inception would lose out to the Social Network but I thought Nolan had a chance at direction. The man deserves SOME credit! Fincher just let the script roll, he didn't really direct that much.

Awards shows piss me off. The Social Network deserved best film, it was one of my favorite films of the year, but that automatically makes it win everything else? I'll admit Trent Reznor is a brilliant musician and The Social Network had some great minimalist work, but Hans Zimmer in my opinion deserved best original score.

But let's be honest, everyone, including Chris Nolan, knew it wouldn't win due to the perception of Inception as an action movie.

At least they got the acting awards MOSTLY right. I guess Christian Bale deserved his, although I would've chosen Geoffrey Rush. Colin Firth definitely deserved his, as did Natalie Portman. I would've given Helena Bonham Carter best supporting actress, although I suppose Melissa Leo's performance was solid.

Agreed, but he got the screenplay nomination and Best Picture, though. :)

I hope Hans Zimmer will win the Oscar for Best Original Score.

Congrats to Chris Nolan, staff and cast, for all those nominations :super:

Bummer that there were no acting noms...and Nolan getting snubbed for Director was a travesty.

That said...hope Inception wins big. The King's Speech I think is going to clean up on the awards (an excellent movie that you all must see...brillant). So, all the categories Inception does not have nominations....will root for Kings Speech.....I will still pull for Inception on the same nominations w The King's Speech :D
