    Eugene Hernandez: Megabucks v. Made on a Shoestring or "Avatar" v. "Hurt Locker"

    Twenty three weeks ago, in a column, I called awards season a marathon. Back in mid-September -- just a few weeks or so into the season -- as I considered ten films I'd watched that might figure prominently at the end of the year. Now we've passed 26th mile marker with under a week to go before Osca...

    For Your Consideration: Predicting The Animated, Foreign & Doc Feature Winners

    Before next week's final pre-Oscar column that intends to run down each and every category for your prognosticatory pleasure, this very last category-by-category batch edition of "For Your Consideration" takes on the three non-Best Picture best pictures, where the alleged best in animation, documentary, and foreign filmmaking fight for the Academy's often debated stamp of excellence. While the expanded-to-ten best picture category did allow for one example of the generally underacknowledged trio to make the cut (Pixar's "Up," which became the second animated film ever nominated after 1991's "Beauty and the Beast"), dreams of a first-time doc...

    Oscars 2010 | Maggie Gyllenhaal: "I feel very vulnerable watching myself in this movie."

    "The release of this movie was tied completely to the awards season," Maggie Gyllenhaal told indieWIRE regarding Scott Cooper's "Crazy Heart," for which she has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. "And I could feel it so strongly. For example, when Jeff Bridges won the Golden Globe, all of a sudden ten people a day would stop me on the street and tell me they'd seen the movie. It had such a huge effect. You know, I'd been through the awards stuff before [receiving Golden Globe nominations for both "Secretary" and "Sherrybaby"], at least going on the road and doing some of it... But I've never felt so concretely th...

That's how "Zero Bridge" director Tariq Tapa sums up h...

    Oscars 2010 | "The Hurt Locker"'s Jeremy Renner: "What am I doing here?"

    "It's hard to put it all into words," "The Hurt Locker" actor Jeremy Renner told indieWIRE regarding the attention the film and his performance have received on the awards circuit. "I can say it's palatable. I can actually swallow this pill to kind of be tossed into all this. It's been such a long t...
