Awards Season Roundup: “Social Network” makes big splash in New York City


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.

David Fincher’s “The Social Network” had its splashy East Coast premiere in New York City last night, opening the New York Film Festival with a star-studded gala screening at Lincoln Center, followed by a black-tie after party at the Harvard Club. I’m heading back to the swank facility in an hour to interview the cast of the film, and will post plenty on that in the days to come. In the meantime, the Wall Street Journal has photos from the premiere, while Jeff Wells snuck a camera into the Harvard Club last night and left with a pic of the back of Justin Timberlake’s head.

Scott Feinberg stretches a bit to compare “The Social Network” to “Citizen Kane.”

Meanwhile, over on Deadline, Pete Hammond starts analyzing the Oscar contenders that have yet to screen, including Joel and Ethan Coen’s “True Grit” remake, and “Love and Other Drugs.” Coincidentally, I ran into a Boston-based film journalist who saw an early cut of Ed Zwick’s “Love” and said it’s a lock for most of the top nods, including Picture, Director and both leads (Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway). Just one man’s opinion. We’ll know more when it screens in November.

And the L.A. Times breaks down all of the reasons they believe “The King’s Speech” will reign at the Oscars.

Finally, Sasha Stone makes the Oscar case for the “Harry Potter” series as that franchise winds to a close. Does it deserve Oscar love? I say, “Hell yes!”
