Thompson on Hollywood

Fresh off the plane from LA to London, in advance of my London Film Fest activities, I got on Skype with In Contention's Kris Tapley for our weekly kudocast. We went deep on what went wrong with Amelia, what's going right with Precious, the plethora of awards-worthy but small-scale projects from Sony Pictures Classics (from Coco Before Chanel and An Education to Moon, The Damned United and The Last Station), films that will struggle to get plucked for viewing from Academy voters' DVD piles, and the start of awards season with the Gotham nominations and the Hollywood Film Festival.

    If Michael Sheen wins an oscar for THE DAMNED UNITED, those of us in blighty will be relieved the real Brian Clough isn't around to wallow in his glory, "well, two European Cups, 2 league Championships and an Oscar! Beat that, Don Revie!"
