Black Swan,’ ‘King’s Speech’ lead BAFTAs long lists

By Paul Sheehan
hollywoodnews.com: While the Academy Awards tease us with lists of pre-nomination semifinalists in only certain categories — such as foreign film and some of the technical ones — the BAFTAs produce long lists in almost all categories with 15 films in the running in most of the 17 races. The final five nominees in each will be announced Jan. 18 (one week before nominations for the Oscars are unveiled) with the awards fest on Feb. 13 (two weeks before the Academy Awards ceremony).
The 6,000 plus members of BAFTA culled these long lists from 207 eligible films. Leading with 15 mentions apiece are “Black Swan” and “The King’s Speech.” “Inception” and “Made in Dagenham” folllow with 14 while “The Social Network” has 13. “Alice in Wonderland,” “Shutter Island,” “The Fighter” and “True Grit” all merited 12 mentions apiece, and “127 Hours,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “The Town” each have 11. All of these, with the exception of “Alice in Wonderland,” figure in the 15 films contending for Best Picture along with “Another Year,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Toy Story 3″ and “Winter’s Bone.”

Awards Season Roundup: Hammond calls “The Town” a “serious” awards contender

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: HollywoodNews.com’s Awards Season Roundup collects insights from around the Internet on films that are running in the Oscar race.
Pete Hammond discusses the importance of private screenings for Oscar voters, then moves on to “The Town” and calls is “a serious awards prospect.”
“The Kids Are All Right” co-stars Julianne Moore and Annette Bening both will compete for a Best Actress nomination, according to Dave Karger. Will they split the vote, or both score nods?
Polled critics say “Meek’s Cutoff” was the best feature at the Toronto film festival. That’s impressive. What’s even more impressive? It topped “127 Hours,” “Black Swan” and audience pleaser “The King’s Speech.” James Franco also won “Best Lead Performance” (ahead of Natalie Portman), while Geoffrey Rush took “Best Supporting Performance” (ahead of Vincent Cassel).
Mike Leigh, director of “Another Year,” has a few mildly unkind things to say about the Oscars and the BAFTAs.
Finally, Lindsay Lohan likely is heading back to jail after failing court-mandated drug tests. Jeff Wells recommends she see David Fincher’s “The Social Network” before heading off to the pokey. Good advice.
