    Weekly Oscar Prediction Update: 20/10/10

    Here's yet another weekly update of the Oscar prediction charts to supplement Wednesday's awards column on indieWIRE (which this week goes in a different direction than Oscar and looks at the Gotham Award nominations). There's not a whole lot of tinkering - though "Winter's Bone" does get a bit of a boost from all the Gotham love, "The Fighter" seems a bit more hopeful due to that new trailer (and a few whispers), and there's definitely some other thoughts that have shifted here and there. In a week or two I'll do a full on update with commentary for the major categories, but in the meantime these charts are all that time allows. So here's O...

    Director Watch: Nichols and Hoffman Do Salesman, Aronofsky for Wolverine 2, Affleck and Morel

    Philip Seymour Hoffman will play Willy Loman on Broadway next fall in Tony and Oscar winning director Mike Nichols' take on Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman. It's a role Hoffman has been lusting after, Nichols told the NY Times. The pair, who worked together in 2001 for a Central Park production of The Seagull, have been planning the production for months and agreed upon Linda Emond to play across from Hoffman as Linda Loman.
