Awards Season Roundup: “Let Me In” deserves a Best Picture nod, according to one pundit
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.
Matt Reeves’ “Let Me In,” which opens on Friday, “should be one of the ten 2010 Best Picture nominees. It’s that good.” These are the words of noted columnist Jeff Wells. Is he right? It’s too soon to say, with at least five or six more contenders left to screen. But if “In” gets in, I think it’s because “District 9” blazed a trail for genre flicks last year.
Meanwhile, Gregory Ellwood lists 15 Best Picture contenders as of Sept. 27. Where does “The Social Network” fall? How about “The King’s Speech?” And what films sit on the outside of the Top 10 looking in?
“Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky sits down with Alex Billington of First Showing.
Speaking of “Black Swan,” actress Natalie Portman tells MTV she’d do a sequel to “The Professional,” but only if Luc Besson agrees to direct. (Here’s a hint: He probably won’t.)
Thelma Adams of US Weekly wonders (via Gold Derby) if “Made In Dagenham” can get Sally Hawkins an Oscar nod.
While on the same site, Tom O’Neil says social relevance will help “The Social Network” as it campaigns for Oscar’s top prizes.
