Awards Season Roundup: Best Actress race might be toughest to call

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.

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.

Speaking of next year’s telecast, Hugh Jackman was asked to host the upcoming Oscars, but he turned the producers down, reportedly because he’ll be busy filming “Wolverine 2.”

Across the pond, Leavesden, the studio that housed the “Harry Potter” franchise, is getting a $161 million facelift, which will include a tour.

In Los Angeles, the actors’ union and the studios reportedly have agreed to a new film and TV contract.

And finally, Roman Polanski’sThe Ghost Writer” nabbed the most European Film Awards nominations. So should it be part of our Oscar race?
