Thompson on Hollywood


AWARDS

With awards season speculation in full swing, Anne Thompson and Kris Tapley's Oscar Talk considered Little Movies That Can't and the top Animated films as the deadline nears, Animal Kingdom dominated the Australian Film Awards, we considered art house favorite I Am Love's Tilda Swinton and the only way she'll get an Oscar nomination. We took a peak at Nicole Kidman in the Rabbit Hole trailer which sets her up for Oscar consideration, and recognized Gabriel Yared and the other musical talents being honored.

Our wrap of the week's best Oscar chatter includes Blue Valentine's Ryan Gosling (interviewed by Steve Carell) and the best Actress Death Match.

INTERVIEWS

Thompson on Hollywood

Anne Thompson interviewed both Peter Morgan, screenwriter of Hereafter, The Queen and Frost/Nixon (and took a crack at Bond), and rising southern star (and Oscar contender) Jennifer Lawrence on her Winter's Bone experience, her approach to acting (no training, thank you), and why there's blue paint in her ears.

BOX OFFICE

We checked out Paranormal Activity 2's jaw-dropping performance and Hereafter at the weekend box office, and took at look at Love and Other Drugs's early reviews - "shockingly conventional" yet "addictive."

PRODUCTION

- In production news we considered Who Will Direct Cleopatra now that James Cameron is booked for Avatar 2 and 3, Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises (in 2-D), Matt Damon
on his hiatus from the Bourne franchise and the Top Gun sequel Tony Scott has in the works.

AND MORE

- With Mel Gibson quickly outed from his Hangover 2 cameo, we pondered Roles That Could Have Been, watched French actress Cecile de France discuss working on Hereafter with Clint Eastwood, and looked at Andrew Sullivan's Best Practices for Bloggers.
