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

It’s kind of a slow day out there in Oscar land. Perhaps everyone passed out at “127 Hours” screenings?

Those who didn’t pass out helped power Danny Boyle’s film to impressive ticket totals in limited release.

HitFix continues to illustrate the ongoing Oscar races by shifting its focus to Best Actress.

The N.Y. Times interviews Eli Wallach, who is about to receive an honorary Oscar.
