I think it would if it were released later in the year. It seems to be getting the Zodiac treatment. It's also pretty bleak, which could work against it. Acting-wise, Dane DeHaan probably stands the best chance (although everyone is really good in it). Cianfrance should get nominated because he pulls off some incredible stuff in this (both story-wise and visually), but I honestly think it will just get left behind after its March release. Very few films can keep momentum going for that long, even one as great as Pines.
