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.

Could Michael Douglas find his way into the Supporting Actor race with “Wall Street 2?”

And on the topic, will the actor’s battle with cancer factor into his chances?

Guy Lodge says the “F” word could become a problem for “The King’s Speech.”

Over at IndieWIRE, Anne Thompson and the InContention boys throw dirt on “Never Let Me Go,” celebrate “Carlos,” and debate the impact the NC-17 rating will have on “Blue Valentine.”

James Franco has earned the first of what’s sure to be several awards for his fantastic “127 Hours” performance.

While Scott Feinberg breaks down the directors who successfully guide actors to Oscar-nominated roles.

And finally, NPR’s “Fresh Air” spent a chunk of its time celebrating “Toy Story 3” yesterday.

    It would be really ridiculous for Michael Douglas to win best supporting for the same role in which he won Best Actor. That would be really stupid on behalf of the Academy. But I hear ya — Fox is going to push it anyway. They’d be better off pushing Emily Blunt in best supporting for the Jack Black 3D film.
