Ryan already posted about this American Masters series American Masters.  But here is a trailer for it. It’s the year to once again circle back and celebrate the great Woody Allen for his highest grossing film to date, Midnight in Paris, which is maybe a perfect movie.  Owen Wilson’s part on this is my favorite.

A few happenings on the web related to the sleeping dog that is the Oscar race.  We wait, we wait, we wait. In Contention reports that Hans Zimmer has bowed out of the Oscar race this year and will not submit to it.  Who can blame him by this point?
