For a while there, it looked like a few people thought Inglourious Basterds would be the film to beat. Jack Matthews was one of those out front. But he has had a change of heart. This, in the wake of Basterds not making a major show in the guilds probably. It has won a Sound Effects Editing Award, a Critics Choice for Screenplay and a SAG ensemble win. Avatar has…

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more cut-throat Oscar season, nor a more demeaning one all the way around. I don’t know if the ten Best Picture slots opened it up to more wild campaigning, or if the sheer amount of Oscar blogs and websites contributed to the mess by providing outlets for the campaigning like never before, or whether it was a deer taking the lead while the…

Basterds fans should be alerted to a piece by San Francisco Chronicle’s Mick LaSalle, who calls Basterds the only thing that happened in cinema in 2009. But for Oscar watchers, Scott Feinberg has posted a story that indicates a big push to get the Jews to vote for Basterds because it’s a modern day Purim story.

Both Jim Cameron and Harvey Weinstein are putting it out there how they’d like to see the the awards turn out – they are both saying, “give the award to Kathryn Bigelow but save the big award for us.” This is what is called in polite company, cock-blocking. What’s interesting here is that both Avatar and Inglourious Basterds are original screenplays that were directed by their own writer. And The…

SA Studios Global’s Film Marketing Division has teamed up with Quentin Tarantino, Upper Playground and The Weinstein Company to present, THE LOST ART OF INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS to help raise money for the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. These posters are beautiful. The use of the Swastika in some of the works gives me some pause (in the images below).¬†¬† Nothing should be off limits for artists but I think it…
