Shocker: He Used To Use DrugsWe think this rumor is most likely a pile of horseshit, but with Hollywood not playing very friendly lately with celebs who do bad things (unless your name is Charlie Sheen it seems) we suppose there could be some truth to it.

File Under ShockerWe're tempted to file this one under, "no shit, sherlock," but a) we're back on our don't-be-outraged medication this week and b) we'll admit, this is, we suppose an interesting, if very foreseeable, development.

Every year, there's always one film that screens at a fall festival and, overnight, becomes a major awards contender. In 2008, it was "Slumdog Millionaire," in 2009 it was "Up in the Air." This year, the rapturous reaction that "The King's Speech" received at Telluride, and its Audience Award win at Toronto, saw the period drama take its place as a lock among the ten Best Picture nominees, and perhaps the only film to emerge from the field as of yet that could challenge the presumptive front-runner "The Social Network." Having missed it at Toronto, we had one question going into the film's premiere at the London Film Festival on Thursday night: was the film that rarity, a classy period piece that connects with audiences and critics alike, or the kind of easy, older-skewing drama that connects with Academy voters because it's so IMPORTANT (see "The Reader").
