    The Amazing Race: My Super Last Minute Oscar Predictions

    Lord knows why I'm doing this last minute. Maybe just to get it on the record so I can either be totally embarrassed or elated in the morning, regardless, while I've been thinking about this for some time, I just haven't had the time to sit down and actually write out my Oscar predi...

    'The Artist' & 'The Adventures Of Tintin' Win At The PGA Awards

    So did everyone forget about this or was it the folly of having an awards presentation on the biggest weekend of the Sundance Film Festival? Or was it just us? And where was the usually email happy The Weinstein Company on this? Guess everyone is busy in Park City (including us).

    When is It Okay to Get a Refund at the Movies?

    Every once in a while this kind of story pops up for people to laugh or tweet the words "face palm" about: a moviegoer sees a film that wasn't what they expected, and they want their money back. Sometimes, as in the case of a woman who thought "Drive" was going to be like &qu...

    BAFTA Nominations Buck The Trend With Strong Showings For 'Drive,' 'Tinker Tailor' & 'My Week With Marilyn'

    BAFTA nominations were announced early/late/unreasonably late this morning by Daniel Radcliffe and Holliday Grainger, and after a pretty shoddy longlist, which serves mainly to drain the suspense from the nominations list and to let Emma Watson tell her friends "I was this close to a BAFTA nomi...

    69th Annual Golden Globe Winners: 'The Artist' & 'The Descendants' Lead The Way

    Okay, a few comments until our deeper analysis tomorrow. First thing, "The Descendants" -- while taking two awards -- dosen't jump to immediate frontrunner status. "The Help," with its civil rights theme, was never a movie that was going to connect in a big way with the ...

    We could stretch it to more than four, but let’s stay focused. All ears, of course, will be on Ricky Gervais, as we wonder what he can possibly do to top his hilarious, irreverent turn as host last year. The first five minutes should tell.

    We've still got about six weeks to go in the awards season, but we're all but done with the nomination process (bar the Oscars, of course), and moving into the stage where people actually get to start filling up their trophy cabinet.

    'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' Gets Some Love In ASC Nominations, 'War Horse' Once Again Left In The Barn

    The most interesting thing about watching the awards season is how the narratives slowly take shape and change over the dense, fast-moving months leading up to the Oscars. Back in the fall, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" was being tipped as the movie to beat, with Gary Oldman said to be locke...
