Of all the guild awards this year, the WGA had the most intriguing list of nominees largely due to the number of high profile films -- “Another Year,” “Biutiful,” “Blue Valentine,” “The Ghost Writer,” “The King’s Speech,” “Made in Dagenham,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” “Toy Story 3” and “Winter’s Bone” among them -- that were disqualified for not being formally submitted and/or created under the aegis of the organization. Regardless, the guild handed out its awards last night and winners are still representative of some of the year's best work.

"Inception" star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to reunite with Christopher Nolan in the director's upcoming superhero film, "The Dark Knight Rises." While his role is currently unknown (he was rumored to be playing The Riddler for much of last year but Nolan put the kibosh on that villain making an appearance), Deadline reports that the 29-year-old actor is in talks to take a part in the last installment of Nolan's Batman trilogy.

Every year, we wake up for the Academy Award nominations expecting a surprise, hoping the same ten or fifteen movies don't keep getting referenced, honored, what-have-you. Last year, the Academy did a decent job as the field of Best Picture candidates swelled to ten, allowing for more exposure for films from different categories. We're not going to go around endorsing "District 9" as one of that year's finer films, but we were happy it got to sit at the table.

'Moon' Director Also Talks Turning Down 'Dredd'What would you rather have: a filmmaker who's aware of his experience and limitations, but doesn't want to take a risk? Or a director who seizes an opportunity despite what might be a lack of skill-set self-awareness? Is the former just a move by a wise and mature filmmaker? Is the latter simply having self-confidence? Both obviously have their drawbacks, but self-awareness is an unusually new and cognizant level of consideration that sometimes doesn't register in careerist Hollywood.

What's a Sundance? Sorry Robert Redford, but our attention has been refocused today as Warner Bros. has announced that Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) in "The Dark Knight Rises," while also revealing that Tom Hardy will be playing Bane in Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated film.

Kate Mara & Charlotte Riley In The Mix; Eva Green & Naomi Watts Have Not Been CastWhile a number of names have been in the mix since last fall for what are apparently two major female roles in Christopher Nolan's forthcoming "The Dark Knight Rises," with production set to begin in just under five months, it looks like the director is still not done seeing what his options are.

Are we looking at the Oscar five? The Director's Guild of America has selected their five nominees and if history repeats itself from last year, these will be your five Oscar nominees (last year Kathryn Bigelow took home both awards).

Plus Watch The Film In Real Time, And Nolan's Structure Drawing When you think about it, there's really no way that "Inception" should have worked. A film of ludicrous ambition, a $200 million dollar passion project, attempting to combine the arthouse and the blockbuster at one fell swoop, and, unlike virtually every other tentpole, not based on a comic book, video game or airport novel. Not to mention that the history of directors being given carte blanche following a megahit doesn't always work out for the best -- right up until the film started screening, we were still concerned that it could turn out to be Nolan's "Heaven's Gate."

"It’s A Little Bit Like Guilty By Association," The Composer Says Of False ReportLast week when it was reported that Hans Zimmer was tapped to score Zack Snyder's "Superman: Man of Steel," we knew something was off (hence the fact we didn't report it; it just smelled hinkey).
