Online Film Critics go with “The Tree of Life,” “Drive” — AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: If the critics had any say, Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” would be a shoo-in for a Best Picture nomination next year.
The film topped this year’s “Sight and Sound” poll of international critics. It landed on the lists of multiple critics’ organizations. And earlier this morning, the ethereal human drama was announced as the leading nomination grabber from the Online Film Critics Society (of which I am a member), which recognized Malick’s picture in the categories of Best Picture, Best Director (Malick), Best Supporting Actor (Brad Pitt), Best Supporting Actress (Jessica Chastain), Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing and Best Cinematography.
Joining “The Tree of Life” in Best Picture for the 15th annual OFCS awards are Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Artist,” Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants,” Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” and Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo”.
Malick, Hazanavicius, Refn and Scorsese were joined in the Best Director race by “Melancholia” director Lars von Trier.
“Drive” was the second most nominated film, picking up six mentions including the aforementioned Picture and Director as well as Best Supporting Actor (Albert Brooks), Best Adapted Screenplay, Editing and Cinematography. Brooks was nominated alongside John Hawkes in “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” Nick Nolte in “Warrior,” Pitt and Christopher Plummer in “Beginners.”
In Best Supporting Actress, the nominees were Chastain, Melissa McCarthy for “Bridesmaids,” Janet McTeer for “Albert Nobbs,” Carey Mulligan for “Shame” and Shailene Woodley for “The Descendants.”
Woodley and Mulligan’s co-stars shared nominations in the Best Actor slate, George Clooney and Michael Fassbender respectively, who were nominated alongside Jean Dujardin in “The Artist,” Gary Oldman in “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” and Michael Shannon in “Take Shelter.”
The Best Actress category features Kirsten Dunst in “Melancholia,” Elizabeth Olsen in “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” Meryl Streep in “The Iron Lady,” Tilda Swinton in “We Need to Talk About Kevin” and Michelle Williams for “My Week with Marilyn.”

Brad Pitt Very Happy 48th Birthday!

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Of course Brad Pitt first got my attention in that famous sex scene he had with Geena Davis in Thelma & Louise. That face! Those abs!
Twenty years later, Pitt is a bigger star than ever with a string of outstanding films to his credit including this year’s Tree of Life and Moneyball. He seems certain to earn his third Oscar nomination for the latter film.
I’m not just a fan of Brad’s because of his movies. He has also emerged as a staunch straight ally in the fight for LGBT equality. When same-sex marriage was passed in New York earlier this year he said: “It is encouraging that New York has joined the movement to grant equal marriage rights to its citizens. But it is each American’s Constitutional right to marry the person they love, no matter what state they inhabit. No state should decide who can marry and who cannot. Thanks to the tireless work of so many, someday soon this discrimination will end and every American will be able to enjoy their equal right to marriage.”
Let’s hope Brad is correct and that he has a very happy 48th birthday!

Brad Pitt, “Pariah” and the “Dragon Tattoo” in today’s Oscar news – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: A few quick new items on the Oscar front this morning before I run off to interviews on behalf of David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” (which I’ll have on the site shortly):
– Brad Pitt opens up about the behind-the-scenes negotiations that led to Steven Soderbergh being bumped off of “Moneyball.” It’s a great read, if you liked the film as much as I do. In the piece, Amy Pascal calls Pitt the “soul and spirit of this movie. He is the driving force behind it, in all of its troubled times and all the best times. He championed it all the way and never lost heart.” Totally agree.
– Christopher Plummer (“Beginners,” “Dragon Tattoo”) will receive a Modern Master Award at this year’s Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
– Focus Features has invited Writers Guild of America members to view Dee Rees’s “Pariah” through an exclusive screener site operated by fulfillment house Deluxe Media Management. The digital screener was made available to WGA members until Jan 6, 2012. The free rental is for a 48-hour period, which allows WGA members to watch the 86-minute feature film straight through, or to pause their viewing and then return to it within the allotted time period. I have to wonder if this, indeed, is the future of FYC screeners.
– And while I run off an speak with the cast and crew of Fincher’s “Dragon Tattoo,” here is the director and his collaborators on the Charlie Rose Show:
