Paranormal ActivityYou asked for it, you eventually got it: our annual list of the Top 10 shots of the year, part one and part two.

In our ongoing Oscar Guide series, we dug into the supporting actor, foreign language film, art direction, makeup and sound editing races.

Guy’s Berlinale coverage continued, with “The Illusionist,” “The Kids Are All Right” and “Winter’s Bone” among the highlights.

We interviewed “The Cove” director Louie Psihoyos, as well as the creative minds behind “Coraline,” Neil Gaiman and Henry Selick.

Over in our Tech Support interview series, meanwhile, we put “Star Trek” under the spotlight.

Oscar producers broke with tradition by announcing there will be no Original Song performances at this year’s ceremony.

“The Hurt Locker” continued its cruise through the guilds at the American Cinema Editors’ Eddie Awards.

The Santa Barbara fest wrapped with a tribute to Jeff Bridges, including a Q&A moderated by Kris himself.

Kris also attended the Creative Screenwriting panel of of this year’s nominated writers, offering thoughts as well as audio.

We also sat down with one of them, namely “Precious” scripter Geoffrey Fletcher.

On the box office side, Chad contemplated the prospects for Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island.”

As usual, Kris and Anne summed up the week’s awards news and events in Oscar Talk.
