For Your Consideration…

for your consideration ads

We LOVE us some Ry Ry, but there's no effing way that Green Lantern deserves any of these awards, except MAYBE Best Visual Effects or something…

The first round of For Your Consideration ads have been released, and we're not surprised by TOO many of the films going for that Best Picture Oscar!

We're glad to see Moneyball and The Ides of March here…but what about that other Ryan Gosling movie we saw this year? Where's Drive??? Hopefully we'll see that one show up in round two!

Check out the first For Your Consideration ads (below), and let us know which films U think deserve to win big this year!

P.S. Green Lantern?!?!?!? Is that a joke or what, Variety?!?!?!?!?!?

Give Harry Potter An Oscar, Damn It!

Filed under: Harry PotterOscars

They want it. They need it. They deserve it? That's up to the Academy to decide.

Warner Bros. is gearing up the campaign to get the final film of the saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part Two, nominated for some Oscars.

The studio is kicking things off by launching this "For You Consideration" trailer for, well, consideration. They are looking for everything from Best Picture to Best Actor to Best Use Of A Wand! (They'll probably win that last one…)

Ch-ch-check it out! (above)

warner bros wants deathly hallows part 2 best picture nom

Harry Potter for Best Picture! Harry Potter for Best Picture!!!

Whether or not you think Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II was the best movie of the year, it's been breaking all types of records and making all types of money, and it would be hard to deny the fact that it's been a HUGE success.

That being said, we totally support Warner Bros in their efforts to land a Best Picture Oscar nomination for the final Potter film.

The studio plans to

The Rules Have Changed! Oscars Will Now Feature 5 To 10 Best Picture Nominees!

Filed under: Film FlickersAwardzOscars

oscars to feature five to ten best picture nominees

Listen up, filmmakers! You're gonna have to EARN your place in the Best Picture category from here on out.

While the 10 nominees for Best Picture have been pretty solid for the past two years, films are going to have to be EVEN better to make the cut, because according to new rules, there will now be 5 to 10 nominees each year.

Another notable change is that the Best Animated Feature category will feature four nominees in years with 13 to 15 qualifying films…although this doesn't really matter as long as Pixar continues to make films. Ha!

Here's what retiring Academy executive director Bruce Davis had to say about the Best Picture category changes:

“In studying the data, what stood out was that Academy members had regularly shown a strong admiration for more than five movies. A Best Picture nomination should be an indication of extraordinary merit. If there are only eight pictures that truly earn that honor in a given year, we shouldn’t feel an obligation to round out the number.”

We absolutely agree with this! Good job, Academy! Keep the bar set high!

What do U think about the Oscars' new Best Picture rules?

The King's Speech Director In Negotiations For Les Miz

the kings speech director closing deal for les miz

Last month, we were excited to learn that The King's Speech director Tom Hooper is up for the new Les Miz musical movie.

We thought it was a great idea, and now we're pumped to hear that negotiations have begun for him to sign on to direct the new film version of the Victor Hugo novel/Broadway musical.

If done right, this could DEFINITELY be an Oscar contender!

We'll look forward to hearing confirmation on Tom as the Les Miz director soon.

Do U think A Tom Hooper-directed Les Miserables could be a Best Picture contender?

PG-13 Version Of The King's Speech Coming To Theaters Next Month

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness BlitzOscars

pg 13 version of the kings speech gets release date

Do we REALLY need to censor the film that won BEST PICTURE at the Oscars???

The Weinstein Company has announced that starting April 1, they'll pull the R-rated version of The King's Speech from movie theaters, and they'll be releasing a PG-13 version in its place.

Apparently, in order to secure a lower rating, they muted out several instances of the word "!@*&" and other times replaced it with the word "$#!*." LOLz.

The King's Censored Speech will be released on 1,000 screens.

Here's what TWC president of theatrical distribution and home entertainment Erik Lomis had to say about this move:

“We are thankful to the MPAA for their wisdom and swift action in approving the release of The King’s Speech PG-13 version."

It's certainly a great film, so on the one hand we're happy that younger audiences will get a chance to see it, but on the other hand, the film was fine as is - it won Best Picture.

They could have left it alone. Any parent who sees the film will most likely let their children watch it on DVD as long as they're not TOO young. The cursing was NOT a huge deal at all…AND it was mostly in good taste.

Do U think it was a good idea for them to release a PG-13 cut of The King's Speech? Or should they have left it alone?

The King's Speech Director Does NOT Want To Re-Cut The Film For A PG-13 Rating

the kings speech director wont cut film

Given all the awards that The King's Speech has been nominated for AND won, MAYBE it's good as it is???

Harvey Weinstein doesn't seem to think so, and he's working on a new marketing strategy to clean up profane dialogue from the film, in an effort to bring it down to a PG-13 rating.

The King's Speech director Tom Hooper does not support making any cuts to the film, and we don't blame him in the least!

Here's what Hooper had to say about it:

"I wouldn't support cutting the film in any way. I think we looked at whether it's possible to bleep out the f*cks and stuff, but I'm not going to actually cut that part."

Good for you, Tom! You directed a wonderful film, which is a strong candidate for Best Picture at the Oscars, and it would be absurd for you to have to cut the film at this stage of the game!

To quote the Beatles' immortal words, let it be, Harvey!

Do U think The King's Speech should be cut? Or should it stay as is?
