1990s Best Picture Winners
With the awards season on the horizon, now is as good a time as any to look back on the movies that won favor with the Academy. Earlier this year, a supercut emerged highlighting the Best Picture Oscar winners of the 2000s, and now video editor Miguel Branco has turned his eye to the 1990s, with a fresh video celebrating the movies that defined a decade.

It's not a Toronto International Film Festival without Jason Reitman (his father Ivan of "Ghostbusters" fame is on the committee, of course). The director, who has had most of his features debut at the festival (aside from "Young Adult"), had tweeted some question mark suggestions about TIFF earlier in the week that some took as hints that he had completed his just-finished "Labor Day" drama starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. That was not to be as expected (c'mon guys, the thing just wrapped a few weeks ago and is coming out in the summer of 2013). Instead, Reitman revealed he was orchestrating another one of his popular live readings series which thus far have included "Reservoir Dogs," Billy Wilder's "The Apartment," "The Breakfast Club," "The Princess Bride," "Shampoo,"and "The Big Lebowski" (the concept: contemporary actors doing stage readings of the original screenplay in front of an audience).

Jason Reitman, director of "Up in the Air" and last year's unfairly overlooked "Young Adult," is doing another one of his "Live Readings" of a famous movie script, and this time it's the Oscar-winning "American Beauty" at the Toronto International Film Festival. Courtesy of his Twitter, he's been slowly revealing the cast members for the new reading. In addition to the already announced Adam Driver (from "Girls"), who will play the Wes Bentley role, and Sarah Gadon ("Cosmopolis"), who will play the Mena Suvari role, Reitman has revealed who will be taking on the Thora Birch, Scott Bakula, and Peter Gallagher parts.
