Movie City News Releases Gurus of Gold, Part 1, Post Toronto – Still Anyone’s Game

Read More

A lot can change in a few weeks in an Oscar race that is back-loaded with some of the biggest films still to be seen – Flight, Lincoln, Les Miserables, The Hobbit, The Promised Land. It’s crazy making that these movies have not yet been seen. One thing is for sure – they won’t be killed by too much early hype – but at the same time, it will be…

It’s hard to believe a whole year has gone by since the last time we played this game. Last year it was all too predictable and agonizingly so. But maybe things might change up a little this year with wild cards in the mix like Beasts of the Southern Wild or The Dark Knight Rises or Sarah Polley’s odd but moving Stories We Tell. Or maybe none of those movies…

With so much going on here at Awards Daily and it being the time of year when we can barely stay above water, I forgot to put in my Gurus of Gold predictions. Between sending them over there and updating the ones on Gold Derby, it is becoming a bit of a problem to find time, and/or rational thought, to stay on top of it. Right now nobody knows anything….

Gurus of Gold: What Does Best Original Screenplay Really Mean?

Read More

When I was asked by Gurus of Gold to submit my predictions for Adapted and Original Screenplay I had to stop and think about it.  I’ve worn a groove over the years knowing how to predict in these categories.  Best Screenplay almost always means a second prize to a Best Picture/Best Director nomination.  It is usually the dumping ground for brilliant films that can’t get traction in the Best Picture/Best…

The Gurus of Gold Pre-Toronto Check

It’s that time of year again for spitballing the Best Picture nominees.  You won’t be surprised by the titles floating around in this year’s chart – in fact, any one of you readers could probably come up with a similar scenario.   It’s not the most fun thing in the world, participating in this.  For one thing, you have to predict movies you haven’t even seen — movies no one…
