Awards Season Roundup: “Blue Valentine” stock on the rise

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

Vulture looks at Oscar Futures, saying “Blue Valentine” stock is up but “Hereafter” is down after being panned by several critics.

Similarly, Movieline charts the ups-and-downs of the Oscar race (with nifty graphics).

And in the realm of real stocks, Mattel posted a profit in Q3 thanks to its “Toy Story 3” tie-ins.

Back to “Blue Valentine,” where Deadline maps out Harvey Weinstein’s plan to appeal the MPAA’s NC-17 rating for the film.

Anne Thompson analyzes what went “wrong” with “Tamara Drewe.”

Kris Tapley makes the case for Jim Carrey in “I Love You Phillip Morris.”

While Erik Childress argues that Annette Bening has a better shot in the Supporting Actress category.

Speaking of, HitFix breaks down that category (with pictures!)

And finally, with pundits calling for an earlier Oscar ceremony (and the Academy resisting), Pete Hammond weighs in and says the event should be held in November.
