There are some great little somethings popping up here and there.
Steve Pond over at The Wrap has chosen ten overlooked performances and films to remind voters about — I’ll give my link the full Steve Pond treatment by adding commentary – methinks that “overlooked” would apply only to Oscar bloggers – and I think we know that they don’t vote for awards. So, technically, not much has been overlooked yet. However, he points out Greta Gerwig in Greenberg, Sofia Coppola for Somewhere, The Social Network for Best Picture (just kidding; he didn’t), the fabulous John Hawkes for Best Supporting Actor for Winter’s Bone, and many more. Head on over to The Wrap to check it out.
Kris Tapley talks to Martin Scorsese in his two-part interview with Leonardo DiCaprio about both Shutter Island and Inception.¬† IC
Movie City News debuts their big fat chart of top ten lists — a must every year to see how things line up. Guess which movie currently sits at number one.
Patrick Goldstein goes to the Academy’s True Grit screening and reports on the applause-o-meter. He thinks it’s a big deal that Scott Rudin doesn’t get applause for this. With two of the year’s best films under his name, let’s just see if voters are as petty. And why does this story seem like so much gossip? Oh, right, because he takes a swipe at Oscar “pundits.”
The Gurus of Gold put out their Golden Globe predictions (we’re busily hashing out a preview) — and most currently have The King’s Speech at number one. I have added Shutter Island to my top ten. Wishful thinking perhaps, but there it is.
