    LA Times: Stars also rise in the East

    Here, the stars arrived with snowflakes on their shoulders. Some of them walked in a little slower or spoke a little softer, but from the moment they checked their coats, everyone seemed equally ready to eat, to drink and to talk. Although the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood drew the world's attention Sunday night, the St. Regis Hotel in Midtown Manhattan drew the interest and appetites of some storied names from Hollywood's past. Open to all East Coast-based members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the party drew six Oscar winners and plenty of past nominees, providing an excuse to dust off the tuxes and reminisce. Josh Gajewsk...

    LAT: Weinstein On Producers

    In an LA Times editorial this weekend, Harvey Weinstein weighs in on the role of the producer today, in particular with respect to the Academy Awards and a recent rule that only honors up to three producers per film with a Best Picture Oscar and amidst concern that a "Little Miss Sunshine" best picture win would leave out two producers): What really bothers me is that in trying to fix a problem that needs fixing, we haven't paid enough attention to how much the role of producer has changed over the years. In the independent film world, making movies has become so complicated that it sometimes takes a village to get it done. Oscar show produce...

    A (Final) Look at the Red Carpet

    In The New York Times today, reporter & blogger David Carr looks back at his past few months covering awards season from alongside the red carpet:The carpet is as much a conceptual as a physical space, a thin ribbon separating those who have fame and the masses who bestow it. The "reporters" on the margins of this zone are not really reporting in any conventional sense of the word. They don't investigate, explain or even filter very much, which is part of why the movie stars are willing to play ball. Instead they inspect frocks, repeat sound bites and shout into the cameras about what the stars are "really like." In truth carpet reporters lik...

    Film Independent Criticized for Non-Profit Spirit Awards Status

    In a highly critical article questioning the categorization of the Spirit Awards as a charitable event, published on the front page of the Los Angeles Times on the morning of Film Independent's annual awards show, the paper reports that a nonprofit watchdog group gave FIND its lowest rating (a zero) because only slightly more than half of its budget goes to events benefitting members. After being contacted by The LA Times, the paper's Paul Pringle reports that FIND re-classified its $1.3 million Spirit Awards and $2 million Los Angeles Film Festival (according to 2005 numbers) as charitable services to boost the program-spending ratio to abou...
