    For Your Consideration: Predicting The Acting Winners

    With the Oscar ballots mailed and the ceremony less than a month away, it's time to turn our attention to potential winners. So for the next few weeks, this column will devote itself to doing just that, predicting a batch of categories at a time. I'll admit it would be a substantially more enjoyable exercise for both myself and potential readers if there was a little more suspense involved. Save for a few categories (best original screenplay, best foreign language film and, to some degree, best picture) many of this year's Oscar races seem nearly set in stone. But it's not over until it's over, and as boring as Oscar can generally be, he h...

    For Your Consideration: Sundance and Next Year's Oscars

    As made evident earlier this week, the Sundance Film Festival can be a significant launching pad for Oscar nominees. This year's nominations included two for best picture - "Precious: Based on the novel 'Push' by Sapphire" and "An Education" - that had debuted at last year's festival, while a myriad of other nominations did the same, including four from the acting categories, nearly half the screenplay nominees, and two of the best documentary contenders. While 2009 was definitely a standout year for Sundance films, it is probably not likely to replicate that record, though this year's festival - which closed out this past weekend - had at l...

    Box Office 2.0: Oscar By The Numbers

    When the Academy expanded their best picture list from 5 to 10 earlier this year, one of their many reasonings seems quite clear: They wanted more populist films in the mix, which might translate into higher ratings for the Oscar telecast. Well, yesterday they received their wish. With the inclusion of James Cameron's "Avatar," Pete Docter's "Up," Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," Neill Blomkamp's "District 9," and, in a bit of a surprise, John Lee Hancock's "The Blind Side," half of the best picture nominees were $100 million grossers, resulting in a whopping $1,515,425,645 (and counting) box office total for the ten films. In f...

    cinemadaily | Bigelow the Internet's Oscar Pick?

    This weekend, indieWIRE's end-of-Sundance condo party was rocked by the announcement that Kathryn Bigelow was the first woman to be awarded the DGA's award for film. A week before, "The Hurt Locker" won big at the PGAs. She and the film have been frontrunners since "The Hurt Locker" had an exciting summer run in theaters (The film even opened well on four theaters, grossing $36,000 per theater when it debuted in June). However, late momentum from Bigelow's ex James Cameron, in the form of two big Golden Globe wins has made "Locker"'s future uncertain. This morning, the Academy has announced that Bigelow will be in the running for the Osca...

    For Your Consideration: The 10 Biggest Surprises of the Oscar Nominations

    This morning's Oscar nominations were a generally predictable bunch. With "Avatar" and "The Hurt Locker" expectedly leading the pack, there were no "The Reader"-esque shockers a la last year, and all but one of the acting nominations had been crystal clear going in.
