    The Spirit Awards Alternative: A Survey of This Year's Nominated Docs

    The Independent Spirit Awards have changed a lot since the ceremonies began two decades ago, and this year's nominees look a lot like the Oscars -- except in the documentary category, where "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room," is the only doc to be nominated for both honors. This season, the Spirit Awards nominees are an eclectic mix of some truly excellent documentaries, in both the Best Documentary section as well as for the Truer Than Fiction Award, which presents a $25,000 grant to an unrecognized documentary filmmaker. The prizes will be awarded this Saturday, the day before the annual Academy Awards, and will be broadcast live on I...

    AFP: France's Cesars give no hints for US Oscars as drama scoops prizes

    "The Beat My Heart Skipped," a drama about a young man choosing between delinquency and music, scooped France's movie awards night in a ceremony that yielded few clues to the fortunes of contenders in next week's much bigger Oscars.

The Best Actor and Best Actress Cesars went to Michel Bouquet for his turn as the late president Francois Mitterrand in "Le Promeneur du Champs de Mars," and Nathalie Baye as a recovering alcoho...

    DISPATCH FROM AWARDS SEASON: The Oscar Nominations: Serious Films Stand to Make Some Serious Money

    Somehow it seems particularly fitting that the announcement of this year's Oscar nominations came on a day filled with numerous breaking news stories: the appointment of a new U.S. Supreme Court Justice; the same day a network television anchor was transported home in serious condition following a bomb attack in Iraq; on the day Coretta Scott King died; and hours before President Bush would seek to "strike an optimistic tone" in a nationally televised State of the Union address. It's not a stretch to try to connect the nominations to current events, given that so many of the movies strike such a serious tone, and with these accolades come the...
