    Ewan McGregor In Perfect Sense

    Perfect Sense is one of those clever, minor, almost-good films saved by Ewan McGregor. (It’s kind of shocking how many there are: how about Rogue Trader, Stay and I Love You Phillip Morris for starters?) This one is a too self-consciously poetic yet more ambitious variation on Contagion, with ...

    We Need to Talk About Kevin Gets Five Nominations from the London Critics Film Circle

    This film is clearly being better recevied overseas as a full body of work than it is here in the US.  Here, Tilda Swinton has gathered some nominations and could be on her way to an Academy Award nod (which in itself will be a miracle), but the film...not so much.   The Iron Lady did...

    The Golden Globe Nominations: The Women

    I like the Golden Globe show cause it's always goofy.  People drink, say funny stuff and you get TV and film people in one place.  People who are awards watchers don't take it too seriously because they have two different film categories -- comedy and drama -- which no other a...

    The Help and Bridesmaids Score Screen Actors Guild Nominations

    Yesterday, the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild nominations were announced. Both The Help and Bridesmaids scored best ensembles nominations (which is their top award) which could be an indicator of potential Oscar love because the actors (a percentage of the SAG members pick these nominees) are the ...

    Critics Groups Votes: What is Their Impact?

    It's hard to keep up with the various critics groups around the country, which have far less impact on the final Oscar race than the early votes from New York and Los Angeles. Check the San Francisco Critics Circle winners below against the Screen Actors Guild votes today, for example, which are...

    'The Help' & 'The Artist' Lead The Field At Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations

    In the seventeen years that they've been running for, the annual Screen Actors' Guild Awards have proven to be a pretty reliable precursor for the acting categories at the Academy Awards. And why shouldn't they? With the actors who nominate their peers for the Oscars overwhelmingly being...

    Time Magazine Boosts Tilda Swinton's Oscar Profile

    One crucial differential in a competitive Oscar race--like the one for best actress--is to be a media darling. It's that simple. Tilda Swinton gives another enigmatic performance in the strangely off-putting Lynne Ramsay drama "We Need to Talk About Kevin," which has been earning critical raves sinc...

    We Really Need to Talk About Kevin and Lynne Ramsay

    I saw We Need to Talk About Kevin co-written and directed by Lynne Ramsay at the Toronto Film Festival. It was one of the best movies I saw there and it is still one of the best movies that I have seen this year. My thoughts (which I wrote at the festival) on the film are below. Not only have the...
