Oscars 2011 – Hosts: Franco & Hathaway

This years Academy Awards with the hosts being James Franco and Anne Hathaway are going to be taking a whole new approach. They have been giving the Oscars a revamp for the show for the past few years and continue to try something completely different this year too. I am actually really looking forward to how they will get on.

The promotional pictures were released last week and you have to admit they look good!

SAG Awards 2011 – Winners

Awards season really is in full swing, but it seems as though the same four actors are picking up the main awards for the films. Doesn’t even look close for the Oscars at all. I guess we could still get quite a surprise but not looking very likely. Quite a surprise for the SAG Awards has to be “The King’s Speech picking up the big award of the night for outstanding ensemble in a motion picture. Great to see a British film doing so well!

SAG Award Winner: Outstanding Ensemble In A Motion Picture

Outstanding Ensemble Motion Picture – Cast of “The King’s Speech”

No Strings Attached (2011) Trailer

Ok so I seem to be on a bit of a rom-com trailer mission tonight, but why do they always look like they could be pretty good in the trailers? Yes as strange as it may seem I do think this looks like it will be rather amusing throughout. Quite a relevant trailer with it being about no strings attached relationship consisting of just sex.

A Little Bit of Heaven (2011) Trailer

After all the disappointing romantic comedy films which have been out in the last few years, I really have a good feeling about this one after seeing the trailer a few times now. Kate Hudson really does have such a likeability factor and I am very much looking forward to seeing this film, how about everyone else?

BAFTA 2011 – Nominations & Predictions

Here are the nominations for this years BAFTA awards with my views and predictions. I really have a feeling that The King’s Speech will sweep the awards! My favorite two films within the nominations have to be “Inception” and “Black Swan” both incredible thought-provoking films. So I shall be rooting for them. Excellent to see “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” getting some recognition!

BEST FILM

BLACK SWAN – Mike Medavoy, Brian Oliver, Scott Franklin
INCEPTION – Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan
THE KING’S SPEECH – Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Gareth Unwin
THE SOCIAL NETWORK – Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca, Céan Chaffin
TRUE GRIT – Scott Rudin, Ethan Coen, Joel Coen

If “The King’s Speech” does not take this award, which I think it will do. I would love to see Inception get some recognition in awards terms as it really has been one of the most talked about films in recent times.
