Awards Season Roundup: ‘Toy Story 3’ wins first of what’s sure to be many trophies


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: HollywoodNews.com’s Awards Season Roundup collects insights from around the Internet on films that are running in the Oscar race.

The Hollywood Film Festival began announcing its winners today. “Toy Story 3,” “Iron Man 2” and “Inception” cinematographer Wally Pfister were recognized. More announcements are on the way. This year’s festival will be held Oct. 20-25 in Los Angeles.

Robert Redford’s “The Conspirator,” which I enjoyed (especially James McAvoy’s mature performance), was acquired by Roadside Attractions … but won’t enter this year’s Oscar race.

Awards Daily says “Never Let Me Go,” “Jack Goes Boating” and “The American” are out of Best Picture consideration … because their BFCA Critics Choice ratings aren’t high enough.

Patrick Goldstein of the L.A. Times talks to Sally Hawkins, who has three major festival films in play and would like to hang around for the Oscar race.

Also in the paper, Mark Olsen profiles “The Whistleblower,” with Rachel Weisz, which played at TIFF to standing ovations.

Jeff Wells walks out of John Madden’s “The Debt” after 40 minutes. The good news? He usually walks out of things sooner.
