Awards Season Roundup: The “whitest” Oscars in recent memory?
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.
Where are the celebrated minority performances? Is this the “whitest” Oscar race in recent memory? Gregg Kilday and Matthew Belloni discuss.
Continuing to gush over “Let Me In” (which he says deserves Best Picture consideration), Jeff Wells called star Chloe Moretz “Jodie Foster in 1975, only more so” and adds that she “has really earned consideration as a Best Actress nominee.”
Wells additionally cops to being lukewarm over Tony Goldwyn’s “Conviction,” but hopes enough people admit to liking it so that Fox Searchlight “will feel placated enough to run ads on the Oscar sites. How’s that for naked honesty?” Admirable.
Over at EW.com, Dave Karger talks to the “Social Network” cast and crew about “talky” movies.
A ComingSoon.net reader wrote in to the site and said a different, longer “True Grit” trailer is in theaters this weekend. They described it as “epic.” It reportedly will be online early next week.
The annual march of year-end Awards Screeners has begun with Sony Pictures Classics’ “Mother and Child” and “Animal Kingdom.” One of the two is one of the best films I’ve seen this year.
And The Wrap recaps the latest international submissions for this year’s Best Foreign Language Oscar. (List is updated regularly.)
