Awards Season Roundup: Is Kristen Stewart entering the Oscar race?

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

Jake Scott’s “Welcome to the Rileys,” with Kristen Stewart, James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo, is having its big press day in New York in two weeks. Ahead of that, Awards Daily compiles clips, photos and a one sheet. The Sundance Film Festival favorite opens in limited release on Oct. 29. Do we have a dark horse contender on our hands here?

On the heels of the news that the MPAA slapped “Blue Valentine” with an NC17 rating, The Weinstein Company releases the film’s official trailer.

Is “Secretariat” this year’s “The Blind Side?” Is Diane Lane this year’s Sandra Bullock? Thompson and Tapley debate.

Speaking of, Vanity Fair asks 24 burning questions about “Secretariat” as the film opens.

And Steve Pond grills Nev Schulman, the star of the controversial “Catfish,” which has been described in certain circles as the “other” Facebook film (and, in my opinion, the more socially relevant Facebook film, to boot).

    Kristen Stewart deserves to be in the running for a gold statue named Oscar.

    It is maybe too early for her, considering role in the Twilight. Kristen is a gifted actress for sure. Something authentic about her face.

    Melissa Leo and Kristen Stewart deserve to be nominated by this film for any award, Independent Spirit or Oscar! They delivered amazing performances!

    of course Kristen Stewart won’t be nominated, are you crazy? Have you read the reviews? The vast majority totally trash the film&especially the director&script! As for Stewart, reviews are between: she’s OK&she’s bad!! Only MTV praised her, but hey, it’s MTV, they praise everything twilight!! I’m sorry, but why are you biting a dead horse? Srsly? Cause Stewart’s name makes the headlines? I don’t have anything against the girl, but come on!

    forget the twilight merciandise, just look at her acting, she is so true, so elegant in all her performances, that she worth a nomination!! i dont care with who she likes to go out, if she likes or not the V.i.p. life…this is private, i love her like actress, GO ON KRISTEN!!!!

    Melissa Leo and K-Stew really deserve something for this movie and their other films. Besides Twilight, which is a B-movie at best, she’s done good work. Into the Wild, Adventureland, and The Runaways come to mind. She’s gotten some great reviews since Sundance for this one. Her time will come. On the Road, where she plays the lead female role, will also get her some attention.
