For Your Consideration: John Hawkes In “Winter’s Bone”


Last year I concentrated my efforts on getting a Best Picture nomination for The Hangover. Clearly, that campaign failed. Regardless, I am rallying around one dark horse contender again: John Hawkes in Winter’s Bone for Best Supporting Actor. Hawkes is probably best known for his role as Sol Star on HBO’s Deadwood and star of the 2005’s indie flick Me and You and Everyone We Know. This year, however, he made waves opposite new-comer Jennifer Lawrence in one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films – Winter’s Bone. This film currently holds a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Three Contenders: Shutter Island, Toy Story 3 and Inception


I feel like 2010 has been a relatively slow year for movies. It’s almost universally acknowledged that this has been one of the worst movie summers ever. There are only about two or three films that have already been released this year that I’ve yet to see that I actually really want to see. That being said, there has also only been three films released this year that are even close to Best Picture quality: Shutter Island, Toy Story 3 and Inception. If the Academy is really going to keep having ten slots in that category, Hollywood is going to have to do a lot better than only three great films in a matter of seven months. I love all three of these films. Toy Story 3 made my whole family cry, including my 59-year-old father. I still can’t decide if I liked Shutter Island more or Inception more. The thing is both movies are full of great performances, but Shutter Island is really about Leo’s performance, whereas Inception felt like a true ensemble piece. I think I’m going to have to see Inception one more time before I can make that decision.

Spoilers may lurk after the cut.

Well we knew one thing right off the bat, as Avatar did not have a single nomination. In fact, of the top five contenders right now only three were up for Best Ensemble. After tonight it’s clear that the actors are behind Inglourious Basterds

Screen Actors Guild Awards Are Tonight


They’re going to be broadcast, starting at 4:30PM PST on both TBS and TNT. The SAGs can be kind of hard to predict and don’t always go in the same direction as the race to Oscar, so I’m not going to even try to predict them.

But, as always, I will be live-blogging them over at my tumblr: http://oldfilmsflicker.tumblr.com/ so head over there if you’re interested. After they’re over I’ll make a post similar to my Globes and Critics Choice posts, so you can look forward to that as well.

An Education – An Edifying Coming-Of-Age Film


I finally got to see An Education and absolutely loved it. The one-sentence summary: 16 year-old Oxford- bound British Schoolgirl Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is wooed by the suave, and much older David (Peter Sarsgaard) in 1961 London.
