Awards Season Roundup: “Love and Other Drugs” opens AFI Fest

By Sean O’Connell’s Awards Season Roundup collects insights from around the Internet on films that are running in the Oscar race.

Ed Zwick’sLove and Other Drugs” kicked off the AFI Fest last night. Variety’s Justin Chang has panned it. HitFIx’s Drew McWeeny praised it. I’m with Chang. The picture changes its gears more times than an 18-wheeler on a cross-country jaunt.

Danny Boyle’s127 Hours” opens in theaters today. See it. It’s amazing. Perhaps the year’s best. Then listen to Dido and A.R. Rahman’s “If I Rise,” from the film’s conclusion. You’ll get goosebumps all over again.

Sasha Stone comes up with the “Best Moments” in some of her favorite 2010 films.

Gregory Ellwood reports from the 2010 BAFTA Britannia Awards.

Vanity Fair interviews Valerie Plame about “Fair Game.”

Ben Affleck’sThe Town” will be on DVD on Dec. 17. Just in time for a little Oscar consideration?

And finally, the Gurus have “The King’s Speech” atop their latest poll.
