Awards Season Roundup: Bigelow + Hanks = Oscar Gold?

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.

Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow wants to follow up “The Hurt Locker” with “Sleeping Dogs,” and she wants Tom Hanks for the lead.

If the Oscars move to January in 2012, would it steal any thunder from the Sundance Film Festival?

Meanwhile, Tom O’Neil says the Oscars shouldn’t be moved up to January … they should be pushed back to April!

Focusing on this year’s race, Dave Karger wonders who we should root for in “The Social Network?” Who do the cast members root for?

Jeff Wells makes the case for Lesley Manville of “Another Year,” saying it “will be fairly intolerable if [she] … doesn’t end up as one of the five Best Actress nominees this year.”

Then he starts an argument with Scott Feinberg about Bening and Moore both going after Best Actress noms for “The Kids Are All Right.”

And finally, Larry King’s CNN show this evening will be dedicated to Tony Goldwyn’sConviction,” which stars Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell and Minnie Driver. All four are expected to be on the show, which also will focus on people who have been wrongly jailed for crimes they did not commit.
