    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.

    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.

    "Prodigal Sons'" Kim Reed: From Footballer to Female Filmmaker

    "I think with the issue of transgender and sexual identity gets confused with attraction," filmmaker Kimberly Reed told indieWIRE on Thursday. "I think it's important to distinguish between the two...There's an assumption that you'd only want to change genders because you don't want to be gay." Making the transition from a straight football playing All-American male to female lesbian is the stuff that makes headlines and draws sensational media attention. Reed recently appeared on "Oprah" spotlighting her story and the film she directed, "Prodigal Sons," which had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in 2008 and made a long run o...
