Yes, Carla Gugino was on the ballot for her role in this movie. I believe the movie was listed in other catagories, too. The chances of it making the final five? I would say somewhere in the middle, not shoe-in, but bad enough for serious consideration.

If this film gets nominated for anything, i expect it to be Worst Supporting Actress for Carla Gugino. Are the chances high enough that I can legitimately expect that much?

C;mon... These guys were never going to win any Oscars. SotL, yes, but let's face it - that was ALL because of Anthony Hopkins' Lecter, and the creepiness he brought to it.
Y'know what I'd like to test though, is trying out a thriller with Peter Stormare as a creepy Lecter type and have it be a serious movie. He was still probably one of the best Satans ever in Constantine. And if anyone ever watches Tim and Eric Awesome Show: Great Job and saw his cameo on that, he could quite possibly be the creepiest man of all time. Peter Stormare FTW.

Yes, but by doing so, your movie is automatcially declared an "Omen/Rosemary's Baby" knockoff and any Oscar consideration goes out the window.

He said WON. Although "Sixth Sense" did get major nods, it didn't win any of them.

It may not be a direct translation of an Asian horror movie, but it certainly appeared to be inspired by them.

If I have anything nice to say about this one, it's that it's the first one in a
long line of supernatural/ghost stories that isn't a remake of an Asian
horror movie. But don't that fool you into thinking this isn't a derivative
and predictable "thriller". If you've seen movies like The Excorsist
and The Grudge, The Unborn has nothing to offer other than
nostalgia for when the genre was still fresh. There are no real scares
other than the "haha, made you jump" kind of jolts. And most of the
scenes where the protagonist is in trouble, it's usually some kind of
hallucination caused by her unborn brother. So I sit there wondering why
I should be scared when she isn't in any real danger. If you've seen
movies like The Excorsist and The Grudge, The Unborn
has nothing to offer other than nostalgia for when the genre was still
fresh. Though it's not a remake, I do believe this qualifies as a Worst
Remake or Ripoff
contender.

As for Oscars, when was the last time ANY horror movie was even considered a "good" movie, or even anything close to Oscar-worthy? Rosemary's Baby? The Omen? 25-30 years?

I count "SOTL" as more of a thriller, than a horror movie.

I thought the ad copy was funny.

IT WANTS TO BE BORN

 

 

NOW.

I want to rent this. I've heard it is unintentionally funny. That satanic baby thing is humorous by now.

Absolut Unborn... I could have used some Absolut after watching this stinker... with enough booze, I might have managed to forget it.

The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

Didn't notice the reply until just now - You COULD consider SotL a suspense/thriller rather than a horror movie. I don't think the idea was to scare, so much as to say "Hey, I'm Hannibal Lecta and I'ma CRAAAZEHHHHH"

I hate Gary Oldman. I hope he deserves a nomination for this movie next year...
