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’s “The 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.
