George Clooney: His best performances to date

When it comes to movie stars, few actors in Hollywood better encapsulate what you want out of a veteran A-lister than George Clooney. Not only is he an accomplished actor with an Academy Award on his mantle, he’s a highly regarded writer and director, with an Oscar for producing under[...]

“Unbroken” by Angelina Jolie: Best Adapted Screenplay contender

As you fine folks all must know by now, it’s one thing entirely to read early Academy Award predictions in order to see what pundits like myself think will happen this winter, but it’s a whole separate thing to actually know something about who and what will be in contention.[...]

Jason Reitman bringing Oscar-winning classic to TIFF 2012

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Canadian native Jason Reitman has become a staple of the Toronto International Film Festival, premiering his award-winning “Juno” and “Up In the Air” at the annual fest. Reitman’s returning for the 2012 festival, but he isn’t bringing a film. Well … he isn’t exactly bringing a film. Reitman[...]

Oscars: Can George Clooney upset Jean Dujardin in the Best Actor category? – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell hollywoodnews.com: With the Oscars on the horizon, only a handful of races remain up in the air … at least, if you pay attention to the “experts.” Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Artist” appears to be this year’s Best Picture frontrunner, with momentum still swinging between “The Descendants” and “The[...]

Jason Reitman, Diablo Cody talk Charlize Theron, Patton Oswalt and “Young Adult” – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: The last time Jason Reitman directed a Diablo Cody script, audiences were treated to the goofily hip “Juno,” and the Academy was charmed.

Jason Reitman reveals focus of his next Live Read

He recasts classic works of cinema with inspired acting choices, and has them read the script for live events that have been held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (or LACMA). To date,[...]

Jason Reitman, Diablo Cody film “Young Adult” gets first poster – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: I’m still surprised — make that shocked — that Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult,” with a script by “Juno” collaborator (and Oscar winner) Diablo Cody, is skipping the fall film festival circuit. Even if Reitman had decided to hold his film out of Telluride and Venice, a world[...]

Charlize Theron spotted in Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult” – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: From an awards perspective, I’m still trying to figure “Young Adult” out. A collaboration between “Juno” teammates Jason Reitman (director) and Diablo Cody (writer) should be enough to get the Awards Alley’s juices flowing. Then you factor in the success Reitman had with his “Juno” follow up,[...]

Will Meryl, Jason and Clint ride the film festival circuit? – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Three titles were conspicuously absent from the recently announced programming at this fall’s Venice and Toronto film festivals: Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult,” Phyllida Lloyd’s “The Iron Lady” and Clint Eastwood’s “J.
