Meryl Streep’s “The Iron Lady” moves its release date – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: With the AFI Fest happening in Los Angeles and other awards hopefuls making plays in other markets, this weekend was incredibly busy with Oscar news. Let’s try and catch up with the major headlines in today’s Awards Alley Oscar roundup:

Meryl Streep’s “The Iron Lady” has moved its release date to Dec. 30. That’s cutting it awfully close, since films in Oscar contention have until midnight on Dec. 31 to begin their one-week qualifying run. Will “Lady” be ready in time?

“The Adventures of Tintin,” “Puss In Boots” and “Rango” are among the 18 films deemed eligible for this year’s Best Animated Feature Oscar.

Speaking of family friendly fare, Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” screened for L.A. critics over the weekend and earned off-the-charts raves. Steve Pond at The Wrap even says it played like gangbusters at an official Academy screening.

Another awards screening missed its mark. Jeff Wells’ noble attempts to screen Paddy Considine’s “Tyrannosaur,” particularly to show off the searing performance of Olivia Colman (who’s fantastic), only attracted a handful of eyeballs. The ball’s now in your court, Strand. Can you get this movie in front of enough influential voters?

My Week with Marilyn” screened Sunday night at AFI Fest, but outside of a few puff pieces regarding Michelle Williams’ red-carpet look, I can’t find any reactions.

The other film leaping onto Oscar’s radar this weekend was Oren Moverman’s “Rampart,” which reportedly features an awards-worthy performance by Woody Harrelson playing a corrupt LAPD cop. But Hitfix says the respected actor likely will find himself on the outside of the Best Actor race looking in.
