WEEKLY WRAP: Supporting ladies gather, London opens, Hardy goes to Gotham

Posted by · 8:28 pm · October 15th, 2010

Off the Carpet picked out the likeliest runners in a highly malleable Best Supporting Actress race.

We checked in on the Best Animated Feature race, where it seems we may be looking at a three-nominee field after all.

Away from the awards beat, the week’s big news was the casting of Tom Hardy in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman venture.

The Academy formally revealed the list of 65 contenders for Best Foreign Language Film.

This was just one topic of conversation in this week’s busy episode of Oscar Talk, which saw Kris and Anne joined by Guy and indieWIRE’s Peter Knegt.

As our coverage of the London Film Festival kicked off, this week’s Long Shot column pondered the fate of fest opener “Never Let Me Go,” and other prestigious awards-season misses.

Tech Support took a return visit to this year’s Best Cinematography race.

Julian Schnabel’s critically panned “Miral” completed its awards-season flameout as The Weinstein Company booted it into 2011.

We were given an exclusive insight into the casting of potential Best Supporting Actor player Sam Rockwell in “Conviction.”

Kris was wowed by Jim Carrey’s work in the long-postponed “I Love You, Phillip Morris.”

After “Blue Valentine” controversially received the rating last week, this week’s list rounded up some of the most notable NC-17 films of the past two decades.

Life Without Oscar continued its examination of what was acceptable in the 80s.

“The Social Network” held the top spot at the box-office, with “Secretariat” inspiring innumerable “slow out the gate” puns.

And finally, at least one Oscar race got properly under way as the Academy announced the eight films longlisted for the Best Doumentary Short award.

    I am even more so than I have already been iepsirnd by you. I honestly did t think that was possible. But hey lookie there you just proved me wrong again. I am not as confident in my abilities to pull my dream off as you are and to say I have need discouraged and in a slump was an understatement. I haven’t really even wanted to pick up my camera. I somewhere have lost the hunger. I so needed to read this. Thank you for being open and honest and willing to blog your little heart out to give the rest of the world hope.
