Awards Season Roundup: “Love and Other Drugs” called Zwick’s best

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

Ed Zwick’s “Love and Other Drugs” screened in New York last night, and Jeff Wells over at Hollywood Elsewhere says the film is a “hit.” He calls it Zwick’s best film, saying it’s “charming and affecting and likable … sharp and polished and beautifully shot and acted and cut, and it just grooves right along with sass and wit and ultra-frank sexuality and generous nudity and undercurrents that are Jerry Maguire-ish at times.” High praise, indeed.

We have more talk on Michael Douglas this morning, with the New York Times wondering if the actor will campaign for “Wall Street” or “Solitary Man.”

Vanity Fair has a Q-and-A with Team “127 Hours.”

While Awards Daily has three new TV spots for Danny Boyle’s film.

And finally, buzz starts to build for Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Country Strong” performance.
