Read More

And so the story goes, but really this is a great publicity stunt to get the word out about Sin City 2, note the date.

The Oscar race is to muggles mostly a beautiful illusion. We all cheer the gods and goddesses as they amble their way down the red carpet, stuffed into spanx, the third day of their Master Cleanse, trying not to look too nervous.  It will be a splendid affair, complete with our own Jack and Jackie — or Most Beautiful Couple in Ben and Jen and the awards will bestowed upon…

Put on a Happy Face

Have you ever noticed how many FYC campaigns are forced to show their characters in full blown happy mode at all times? The reason for this is a depressing one: people don’t watch depressing movies.

Read More

Deadline’s Pete Hammond got the scoop that states what we knew already – Pixar/Disney is going for the Big One with Toy Story 3 to win Best Picture. Not going to happen. But okay, let’s pretend it does have a chance just for kicks. And thanks to all of the readers who have been sending me the FYC ad pictured above. There’s just one problem with it: Toy Story 3…

Over at Hollywood-Elsewhere, Jeff Wells reports that both Milk and Frost/Nixon are pretty good, in his estimations. He gives them both about an 8.5 on a scale of one to ten but says he doesn’t understand what the early impressions of Frost/Nixon were about and the so-called bad buzz he heard about Milk was also unfounded. In the comments, Scott Feinberg, wrote: Jeff, I was getting the same BS tips…
