So I’ve totally fucked off on this blog for a good week or two. My excuses: I had a mini book tour (which was so, so fun… thanks to all that helped that happen), had a horrible post-TIFF cold/flu, and am now in the midst of the New York Film Festival, a festival I love but one in the midst of the most exhausting city to possibly hold a film festival. Here’s hoping the buck stops here (and I’m saddened that I missed out on the opportunity to blog about things like the “Arrested Development” fourth season/movie, which is the greatest news perhaps ever). But I figured why not start things off with a Lost Boy cornerstone: Updated Oscar predictions. Though I must say attempting to get excited awards season this year has been a slow build: Things be boooring right about now, but for what it’s worth, here’s where I see it all standing.
