WEEKLY WRAP: Newman remembered, Rudin/Weinstein, Foreign film race

Posted by · 10:00 pm · October 3rd, 2008

Paul Newman in HudAs we head into the weekend, here’s a quick overview of what we (and you) have been talking about at In Contention this week:

Kris paid tribute to the incomparable Paul Newman, as well as rounding up some of the man’s greatest performances.

As the Scott Rudin-Harvey Weinstein soap opera continues, Kris wonders where this leaves “The Reader” in the race.

John Foote contemplated the screen’s greatest leading ladies, past and present.

Matteo Garrone presented his red-hot foreign-language contender “Gomorrah” in London. I was impressed with the film.

Speaking of which, all the submissions for Best Foreign Language Film are in.

In the wake of a sensational new trailer, Apple takes a mouthwatering look at the tech credits of “Australia.”

Continuing the technical conversation, Gerard previewed the runners and riders in the Best Sound Mixing race.

Clint Eastwood scooped the first in what could be yet another run of awards for him this season.

And finally, in case you weren’t aware awards season has started, the people behind “Frozen River” and “Elegy” would like to remind you otherwise.

    Just wondering, when will you be making another prediction chart?

    As Kris mentioned in a thread earlier this week, charts will be updated on Monday. The reason they weren’t updated last week is because he didn’t feel all that much had shifted in the race.

    Yeah, jeez…patience. All the foaming at the mouth has me concerned since, you know, I was considering doing away with the prediction charts altogether and sticking with the predix in the sidebar.
