Awards Season Roundup: Peter Weir’s “The Way Back” officially enters the race


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.

By 2012, the Academy would like to host the Oscars in late January or early February. Great idea.

Peter Weir’s “The Way Back,” which earned raves at this year’s Telluride festival, will receive an Oscar qualifying run in December, followed by a rollout in January.

About the race … Dave Karger at EW runs down the top categories.

CinemaBlend still sees “The Social Network” as the frontrunner, dismisses “Fair Game,” and starts banging the drum for Hailee Steinfeld of “True Grit” (based on the trailers).

Julie Taymor’sThe Tempest” gets its first trailer.

Did the fact that Peter Jackson is directing “The Hobbit” really deserve a “TOLDJA?”

And Scott Feinberg addresses Annette Bening and Julianne Moore both competing for Best Actress slots for “The Kids Are All Right” … and says there’s no reason why both can’t make the cut.

    —-Going by the trailer —looks WAY toooo GQ meets ‘Outward Bound’
    and with that stale, stale, stale techno-scoring.

    FURTHER we’d hoped the truly talented and accomplished Weir would’ve
    been smart enough to steer clear of done-to-death, ad nauseum
    Hollywood WW2 franchise

    ESP. as BOTH the 20th anniversary of the Tiennamen Massacre
    AND the urgently important 60th anniversary of the KOREAN WAR
    were, AGAIN, ‘mysteriously overlooked’….
