Awards Season Roundup: Academy squashes earlier-date debate


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.

The Academy says it has no plans to move its annual ceremony to an earlier date by 2012. So much for that great idea.

As for this year’s race, Tom O’Neil predicts the Best Actor category.

While IndieWIRE singles out 10 actors not being discussed that should be in the running.

Harvey Weinstein, responding to the MPAA’s decision to slap “Blue Valentine” with an NC-17, says, “We respect the work of the MPAA and we hope, after having a chance to sit down with them, they will see that our appeal is reasonable.”

Jeff Wells starts beating the drum for Rosamund Pike, who is excellent in “Barney’s Version” and “Made in Dagenham.”

And Anne Thompson raves about Matt Reeves’Let Me In,” praising everything from the performances to the score. But she admits it will not be an Oscar contender.
