James Franco on hosting the Oscars – AWARDS SEASON ROUNDUP


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: James Franco opened up about hosting the Oscars in an exclusive interview for EW.com. Though his initial reaction was to reject the offer, Franco eventually reconsidered. “Then I thought about it and I thought, well, why not? Because I’ll look bad? Well, I don’t care.”

Awards Daily says Best Actress remains a two-horse race between Annette Bening and Natalie Portman. I’d argue Nicole Kidman belongs in the discussion for “Rabbit Hole,” but I get where Sasha is coming from.

Speaking of, Gold Derby has a Q-and-A with
Ms. Kidman
.

HitFix has a good sit-down with Ben Affleck.

Scott Feinberg gets Ryan Gosling to open up about “Blue Valentine.”

And Deadline has interviews with Danny Boyle and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

Over the weekend, the 15th Annual Satellite Awards – handed out by the International Press Academy – recognized David Fincher’s “The Social Network” as the year’s Best Motion Picture Drama. Fincher’s going to need a few more trophy cases.
