Oscars: “The Descendants,” “The Artist” and the Oscars Nominees Luncheon – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Now that the Super Bowl is over, the next BIG game on our nation’s horizon is the Oscar telecast, better known as the Super Bowl for movie fans.
We’ll have plenty of news items crossing the wire from now until Feb. 26, when the Academy gets together to hand out their annual Best Of trophies, starting with today’s headlines:
- Alexander Payne (“The Descendants”) has been selected by the Board of Directors of the American Cinema Editors (ACE) to be honored with the organization’s prestigious ACE Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award. The award will be presented at the 62nd Annual ACE Eddie Awards ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 18, in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. “Alexander Payne is a consistently fresh, exciting voice in film,” stated the ACE Board of Directors. “From the socially conscious and satirical “Citizen Ruth” to the rich and poignant comedies of “Sideways,” “About Schmidt” and most recently “The Descendants,” he is a filmmaker with unique vision and the ability to illuminate the humanity in every story he tells. We are delighted to recognize him with our most distinguished honor.”
- Awards Daily wonders if any film can upset “The Artist” at the Oscars. Good question.
- On that topic, Jeff Wells left Santa Barbara charmed by “Artist” star Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo. Good for him.
- EW.com makes the case for “Shame,” which was shut out of the Oscars.
- Lars Von Trier’s “Melancholia” swept the Danish Film Academy Awards. Well, yeah. Of course. What was it’s competition?
- The BAFTAs have picked Miss Piggy as their official red carpet host. That should be fun.

David Fincher, Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig open up about “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Lisbeth Salander is back on the hunt.
The cyber-punk heroine of Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium” trilogy has been resurrected from the pages of the best-selling novel for a maudlin, stormy adaptation guided by cinematic master David Fincher. Though audiences around the world are intimately familiar with Larsson’s missing-persons mystery from the book and a 2009 Swedish film version, those who check out the latest “Dragon Tattoo” will find invigorating new translations courtesy of Fincher’s relentlessly unique approach to some of the story’s universal themes.
In New York City lately, the director addressed the media with his two leads – Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig – in tow for a lively conversation about unlikely relationships, Larsson’s appeal, and the power of Lisbeth, who Mara does not want to treat like an up-and-coming feminine superhero.
Read our review of the film right here!
“I hope not. That was never our intention. We always wanted to make her human. We never thought of her as a comic-book hero,” Mara told the press.
When casting for Lisbeth, Fincher says he was looking for “a magnetic” response to Craig’s protagonist.
“They’re sort of unable to be close to one another. They sort of push off of each other,” the director explained. “So I started looking at the things about Lisbeth that I wanted to see. And I didn’t see them initially in anyone that we were looking at. And Rooney was right under our noses in that I’d already spent four or five days with her on ‘The Social Network.’
“But again, when you cast somebody, you cast them for an inherent kind of quality,” Fincher continued. “You are going to be shooting 14-hour days. You are going to be tired. You’re not going to be able to conjure an armor or a façade every single moment. You want the actor to have a quality that you can’t beat out of them with a tire iron, that is that thing. And innate quality that they have. Rooney was somebody that we brought back time and time again, not because we didn’t see what we were looking for, but because initially … the problems that she was solving for me in ‘The Social Network’ – she was intensely feminine, very mature, warm, verbal, trying to build a bridge desperately to Jesse [Eisenberg] in that five-and-a-half minutes that she’s on screen – none of those qualities apply [...]

“We all fell in love with this movie from the moment we saw it,” MTV News’ Josh Horowitz tells THR. “We all love the work of David Fincher, we all were blown away by Rooney Mara, in this amazing performance of this iconic character, and thrilled by the kind of world that David Fincher created.”
