Awards Season Roundup: Can “Toy Story 3” win Best Picture?

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

On a similar note, HitFix breaks down potential animation contenders (and wonders if we’ll only have three nominees this year).

Awards Daily, meanwhile, says the Best Picture race should boil down to something “entertaining” (like “The King’s Speech”) versus something “groundbreaking” (like “The Social Network”).

I saw this on In Contention but couldn’t find it on’s site, so Kris Tapley gets the link. An interview with “True Grit” star Hailee Steinfeld.

The L.A. Times takes the MPAA to task over its antiquated ratings system.

Annette Bening will be honored in Santa Barbara.

And finally, E! Online gets quotes from a “Blue Valentine” producer on the NC-17 ratings scandal.
