Awards Season Roundup: “Social Network,” Malkovich talks, and a longer “True Grit” trailer

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

While industry pundits focused on “The Social Network’s” box-office performance this weekend (No. 1 with an estimated $23M, for the record), Oscar trackers paid closer attention to the film’s first Academy screening, held Saturday night in Beverly Hills. Pete Hammond has a good round-up of reactions, including e-mails from studio reps and Academy members in attendance. Overall, it went well.

But is there a “backlash” against the film forming in Silicon Valley?

Meanwhile, Awards Daily names “Social Network” stars Andrew Garfield and Jesse Eisenberg on its “Top Ten Breakout Names of Oscars 2010” list.

On a side note, I saw that longer “True Grit” trailer that we mentioned on Friday when I saw “Social Network” in the theaters this weekend. It does give you a better feel for the film, and implies there will be more dark humor than was in the original film (but can be found in the book). It doesn’t feel like a Best Picture nominee, to be honest, but we’ll have to wait until we see the film in its entirety.

A Brazilian film journalist responds to the “controversy” over the country’s selection for the Best Foreign Language Film race, says it’s fabricated (for the most part).

John Malkovich braves the intense California heat to discuss his role in Disney’s “Secretariat.”

Across town, Ed Norton and Robert De Niro open up about “Stone.”

This isn’t relevant for this year’s Oscar race. Perhaps for 2015. But the N.Y. Times now reports that “The Hobbit” might be filmed in 3-D.
