Awards Season Roundup: Oscar trackers start picking favorites

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.

It’s always fun at this point in the annual race to see Oscar prognosticators throw their weight behind a film, director, screenplay or actor. Sometimes it works out. Other times, it doesn’t. But it’s still entertaining to see passion in the prediction game.

For example, even though “Let Me In” tanked hard at the box office, instantly destroying any momentum it might have had in the Oscar race, Jeff Wells continues to beat the drum. Loudly. Who will listen?

And Sasha Stone over at Awards Daily, who has been salivating over “Secretariat” for days now, officially declares Diane Lane a contender in the Best Actress race, simply because two prominent critics mentioned her in their reviews.

Meanwhile, with all of this talk surrounding Natalie Portman’s devastating performance in “Black Swan,” Guy Lodge at In Contention asks, “Why not Mila Kunis?”

Sensing a shift in “The Social Network’s” status as perceived frontrunner, The New York Times looks at players who suddenly could move near the front of the pack.

IndieWire, on the other hand, has no interest in frontrunners, so it singles out 10 underdog actresses who should be considered by Academy voters.

The Kids Are All Right” star Julianne Moore will receive an acting award at this month’s Rome Film Festival. In addition, Oscar hopefuls “Last Night” (with Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes) and “Rabbit Hole” (with Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart) will screen.

And finally, Steve Pond at The Wrap yesterday quoted Academy members who said an earlier Oscar telecast would be a “terrible” idea. But David Poland counters with 10 reasons why a move to January makes perfect sense.
