ONTD graciously posted the photos of the upcoming hottie hopefuls for Oscar 2010. There is nothing quite like the taste of fresh young meat, is there? Just kidding. It is funny how every year they bring out another slate and they really do serve them up like fresh meat, don’t they? How else to capture the attention of an attention-deficit riddled culture? No one had to bring sexy back. It’s…

Premiering at Cannes over a year ago, Gaspar No√©’s Enter the Void has passed its window of opportunity for further awards consideration — as if any movie this avant-garde could ever come close or deign to care about the Oscars.
