    Oscar® Watch: Even the Rain (From Spain): Revised January 19th: I'm Rooting For This Underdog

    See the trailer here. Today January 19, as the Shortlist for Best Foreign Language Submissions for Nomination is announced, I find myself rooting for Tambien la Lluvia for its brave subject matter and ambitious storytelling. But I must admit that the reason I am not rooting for for Denis Villeneuve’s “Incendies, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Biutiful", Susanne Bier’s Golden Globe winner “In a Better World, and Yorgos Lanthimos’s “Dogtooth,” is because I have not seen them! I've heard great things about them though. Nor have I seen Algeria's “Hors la Loi” (“Outside the Law”), Rachid Bouchareb, director; Japan's “Confessions,” Tetsuya Nakas...

    Britney Spears vs. Lady Gaga

    Maybe its the fact that I haven't slept in 27 hours and am possibly a little high on vailum while sitting on the floor of Chicago O'Hare waiting for my delayed connecting flight to Salt Lake City, but I found this fake mash up that has Lady Gaga and Britney Spears in a verbal back and forth absolute...

    Final 2011 Oscar Predictions

    This'll be the last awards-related post until the nominations come out in six days... as I'm the midst of heading Park City way to remove myself from all things awards season and throw myself into 11 days of Sundancery (which should mark a change of pace for this blog... which I'll admit I've hardly been enthusiastic about posting to so far in twentyeleven mainly due to a massive pre-Sundance to do list). But before I start posting all things Sundance, here are my more or less final predictions for the Oscar nominations. They aren't exactly risky, save for a little pick here and there, but I certainly hope I'm wrong and Oscar rocks the boat...
