Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughters hosting special screening of “The Artist” – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell Michel Hazanavicius must be over the moon. The director of the silent comedy “The Artist” is an enormous fan of Charlie Chaplin. And today, the Weinstein Company announces that Carmen and Dolores Chaplin, granddaughters of Hollywood icon, are hosting a special screening of the Oscar contender days[...]

Martin Scorsese, James Cameron talk 3D, “Hugo” – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell Tonight, I’m catching up with two films that have been picking and choosing their “spots” in the ongoing Oscar race. Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” earned headlines earlier in the season when the auteur brought an unfinished print of “Hugo” to the New York Film Festival. Tonight’s version should[...]

“Shame” gets new trailer; “Descendants” opens slow – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell The Oscar race appears to be jogging in place today as the world heads to the multiplex to watch the Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner in the latest “Twilight” installment, “Breaking Dawn, Part 1” (be sure to read our positive review), but that doesn’t mean[...]

Ricky Gervais set to host the 2012 Golden Globes Ricky Gervais is back and will officially be hosting the 2012 Golden Globes. Show announcers have confirmed that he will be the host of the 69th annual show, states Gervais previously hosted and got slammed for dissing a number of stars during the gig. After last year, Gervais wasn’t sure[...]

“We Bought a Zoo” Thanksgiving sneaks are brilliant – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell Critics too often complain when studios choose not to screen their features for review. Opting not to screen sends one message: “Our movie stinks.” One particular awards-hopeful drama decided against pre-screening in my market, a move that always raises red flags. If you have confidence in your[...]

“Titanic” 3D release gets trailer, poster

By Sean O’Connell The “King of the World” is about to soar off of the screen and into your lap. James Cameron has been preparing a 3D retrofit of his Academy Award-winning epic “Titanic” for years. And now, with the film’s re-release inching closer, Paramount is mounting a campaign to lure[...]

George Clooney “lucky” for roles like “The Descendants” – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell If the 2011 Oscar race needed to be described in one word, I’d choose, “Uncertainty.” Despite strong showings by a handful of films – from “The Help” and “The Artist” to Bennett Miller’s “Moneyball” – no film has grabbed the proverbial brass ring and declared itself a[...]

Judy Greer talks “The Descendants,” Alexander Payne and the “crapshoot” of moviemaking – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell It’s not the amount of screen time an actor is given, but what he or she does with it that matters. Ask Judy Greer, who doesn’t show face until the third act of Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants,” but walks away with the drama tucked neatly under her[...]

“The Descendants” co-star Matthew Lillard on Hawaii, efficiency and the “hype” of the Oscar race – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell He’s the “other man,” the guy we are instructed for the bulk of “The Descendants” to hate. (I can’t really tell you why, because to reveal too much would be to spoil.) And yet, in person, Matthew Lillard couldn’t be nicer. The guy who’ll always be Shaggy[...]
