Awards Season Roundup: Morgan Freeman to be honored by AFI

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

Morgan Freeman will receive the American Film Life Achievement Award. Additionally, the ASC announced that it will honor the great Roger Deakins at its annual awards dinner. In Contention has both releases in one handy post.

While we’re talking InContention, they also have the news that Julian Schnabel’s “Miral” has been pushed to March 2011, removing it from the current Oscar race. David Poland Tweeted it first, but Kris Tapley confirmed it. Internet journalism prevails!

Dave Karger takes an early guess at the 10 Best Picture nominees, including titles like “The King’s Speech,” “True Grit” and James L. Brooks’ largely unseen “How Do You Know.”

The Social Network” screenwriter Aaron Sorkin responds to criticisms that David Fincher’s film unfairly depicts women.

Pete Hammond goes over the early releases of 2010 that should be remembered come Oscar time.

One Web site reports that “127 Hours” director Danny Boyle could be returning to the “28 Days” franchise. That would be a shame.

And finally, Michael Caine complains that he should have more Oscars. I completely agree.
