9/22 OSCARWEB ROUND-UP: Carrey’s Oscar potential, ‘Inception’ with a joystick, demanding to see ‘Beaver’

Posted by · 9:12 am · September 22nd, 2010

Sasha Stone ponders Oscar possibilities for Jim Carrey in “I Love You Phillip Morris” as the hate-mongering right looks to block the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. [Awards Daily]

Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy reunite to celebrate 25 years of “The Breakfast Club.”  Come on, Emilio.  Too cool for school?  (See what I did there?) [People]

Christopher Nolan briefly mentions that he’d like to develop “Inception” as a video game (and if you have a film-related news feed then you’ve already seen plenty of webmasters climbing over themselves to re-report this). [Variety]

In pointing to a note of support for Mel Gibson from Jodie Foster, Jeffery Wells contends there’s no reason to keep “The Beaver” out of theaters. [Hollywood Elsewhere]

Casey Affleck’s interpretation of “I’m Still Here”: “It’s a talkie, in color.” [Daily Telegraph]

Former king of early Oscar hype Patrick Goldstein predictably blasts — yep, early Oscar hype, weighs in on the “is it or isn’t it” contender debate surrounding “The Town.” [The Big Picture]

Mark Harris’s interview with David Fincher in transcript form, and unlike a number of the interviews with the director that popped up last week, he actually asked, you know, good questions that yielded insightful answers. [Vulture]

Paul Giamatti on playing a drunk and the politics of karma. [Movieline]

    I want an Oscar push for Shutter Island. Full court press. I watched it again the other night on the blu and it just gets better and better. The critical indifference it received — looking at you A.O. Scott — still baffles me.

    I’d like to see Carrey get it, better yet, I’d actually like to see Phillip Morris in theatres.

    Word on the Shutter Island. I STILL think it has a shot at 4-5 noms (including BP) if it’s remembered and upcoming releases disappoint.

    I kinda gave up on Beaver’s arrival before 2012, but I’ll see it whenever it’s here.

    Do you mean that the hate mongering right wants to retain DADT?

    On the subject of gay people and hateful right-wingers, I have two thoughts:

    1. Jodie Foster is a classy lady and I’m glad she and Mel Gibson have such a seemingly genuine mutual affection for each other, odd though it may seem. And I really want to see her Beaver.

    2. Speaking as someone who’s political views are broadly right-wing, I can say a lot of us want the pointless and bigoted DADT repealed as well.

    … even though, I think, Hans is right in writing that the hate-mongering right wants it retained.

    Hans: I actually meant block the repeal, but same thing. So yes.

    Carrey looks awful in that thing, which looks to be getting a half-hearted release at best.

    It only deserves nods for Best Actor and Supp Actress for Michelle.

    Another nod for DiCaprio’s Shutter Island performance. Does anyone else think DiCaprio keeps getting skipped over becuase they think he’ll have his “it” performance later?

    Deserve’s got nothin’ to do with it, /3rtfu11.

    1) Can nothing be free from politics and hate speech anymore? (And yes, it’s hate speech whether it’s addressed to the right or left0
    2) DADT will be repealed if the review finds no effect on the effectiveness of our troops, so chill out.
    3) Movie video games always suck, so I dont have much hope for Inception. Plus, a great plus of the movie was the ability to entertain without large amounts of violence, so what would you do in the game?
    4) Judging by the trailer, Carrey doesnt have a chance
