Awards Season Roundup: Don’t give up on ‘Shutter Island’
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.
Tom O’Neil says Paramount is mounting an awards push for Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island.” I tend to agree with the studio that the film deserves to be in the running.
O’Neil also discusses the chances of Justin Timberlake being nominated for “The Social Network.”
Speaking of David Fincher’s Facebook film, five tracks from the picture’s score – composed by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross – are online.
Mike Ryan wonders if it’s time to forgive “The Town” director Ben Affleck.
What’s the real version of “Barney’s Version?” Scott Feinberg declares the Paul Giamatti vehicle “dead on arrival” in terms of Oscar chances. (Note: He admits to hating the film.)
Pete Hammond disagrees, saying, “With a decent campaign, Paul Giamatti can make a Best Actor play and Dustin Hoffman is possible in support.” I’d agree with the latter.
Finally, The Wrap wraps up movies that were sold in Toronto, now that the festival has wrapped.
And that’s a wrap for today!
