22 Weeks To Oscar: How It’s Looking… OR And Then There Were Five
It’s a couple of weeks before I normally start 20 Weeks To Oscar. But I was getting a little itchy.
After all, it’s been a month since the Toronto International Film Festival started and not a whole lot has happened in those weeks.
Captain Phillips has opened the New York Film Festival… though most of the media saw it in early September. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty will be shown at NYFF on Saturday. Foxcatcher, which was not all the way in for the season, fell out of the season. And Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street finally got shown to top execs at Paramount at a length that needs a lot more thinning, which has rumors of the film moving to Christmas, early 2014, or Cannes, flying all around the town.
So still in he “still mostly unseen, but we know they are coming” category are Saving Mr. Banks, Soul Survivor, Monuments Men, American Hustle, Her, The Book Thief, and Anchorman: The Legend Continues… though word is that Will Ferrell is refusing to do the work to get his Best Actor nomination.
