Thompson on Hollywood

OSCARS & AWARDS: While Black Swan promotional endeavors impress, the Godard anti-Semitism issue clouds his Honorary Oscar. And as The Hollywood Reporter's new glossy weekly hits the stands with its Actress Roundtable (considered in this week's Oscar Talk), Variety shuffles its editorial deck. Awards are being given to Biutiful star Javier Bardem, The Kids Are All Right's Annette Bening, Cinema Eye helps to anoint award-season documentary frontrunners and Peter Weir's The Way Back kicks off the Museum of Tolerance Film Festival. The King's Speech, with a Gala screening Friday night as part of AFI Fest 2010, leads the Gurus 'o Gold poll along with star Colin Firth and Bening.

VIDEO INTERVIEWS: TOH discusses James Franco and intense reality with 127 Hours director Danny Boyle, and interviews Tim League on Four Lions and Alamo.

FILMMAKER FORUM: indieWIRE was a sponsor at last weekend's Film Independent Filmmaker Forum, in which Lionsgate's Joe Drake gave a keynote encouraging filmmakers to Put In Your 10,000 Hours, plus we moderated a panel on Piracy and took away ten things.

STARS, IN PRODUCTION & DISTRIBUTION NEWS:
FilmDistrict (which just picked up Ryan Gosling's Drive) and Wrekin Hill are Making Distribution Moves, and IFC is re-releasing the Landmark Documentary Shoah. Morning Glory could be Rachel McAdams' big breakout, new Bond Secrets are revealed, Shakespeare goes Sci-Fi and Brad Pitt gets a Jesse James cast and director reunion.

PLUS: The Stars Who Want to Legalize Marijuana, Saw 3D at the Halloween Box Office, and loving the music in Boardwalk Empire episode five.
