    I rummaged through a few clips from tonight's BAFTAs (which are bizarrely not aired lived even in the UK), and even though I would have LOVED to see Lesley Manville take this prize, Helena Bonham Carter gives a charming little speech when she wins best supporting actress.

    Was 2010 an especially heartless year? There may have been the usual lot of (bad) romantic comedies and a few romantic dramas out last year, but for the most part it seems the most popular movies were those without any fairy tale endings filled with love and happiness. Many films were simply not romance-based stories. But many of those that did appear romantic, or promising of such in the end, it's easy to believe their reality was something quite different.

    Movies Lost, Found, And Funded

    I am proud to be part of this year’s blogathon “For the Love of Film (Noir),” an enterprise I missed out on when it was launched in 2010.

    Miramax has been shopping its Disney holdovers to outside distributors. Focus acquired John Madden's Israeli thriller The Debt, starring Helen Mirren, Ciaran Hinds and Sam Worthington. And FilmDistrict, capitalizing on distrib exec Bob Berney's long relationship with Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth), has acquired U.S. rights to his production, the horror film Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. Footage played well at July's Comic Con; Del Toro had been worried about how the movie would be handled by Disney and then, new owner Miramax.
