In and around the web, Ropes of Sillicon’s Brad Brevet lets us know that Universal has opened up its For Your Consideration site, with four films the “center of their campaign,” and they are: Frost/Nixon, Changeling, Tale of Despereaux, Flash of Genius and Mamma Mia.
Also from ROS, links to the scripts for The Duchess and Defiance, and a link to Paramount Vantage’s own FYC site for its Oscar hopefuls, Revolutionary Road, Defiance and The Duchess. Scores for The Duchess can be heard online. More will be available in the coming weeks. Brevet is helping out ParVantage by crafting these handy cheat sheets with who will be considered for what (above).
EW is doing a weekly Oscar “roundup” of which films have the best chance for a nomination of those released. They’ll be doing it from now until the end of nominations.
