Genre Oscars roundup

by on Jan.16, 2014, under Movies

The Oscar nominations are out, and there were some sure things (like Gravity) and surprising snubs (Saving Mr. Banks only getting Original Score and Tom Hanks completely shut out). And of course, other than Gravity (which had Oscar star power to start), it is perhaps not surprising to not see genre movies get much appreciation – even with the expanded 10 film Best Picture slate, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug missed the cut.

Here is a roundup of the nominations of genre-related films and their nominations (forgive me if I miss some):

The Croods
Best animated feature film

Despicable Me 2

Frozen

Bullock now drawn to Gravity

by on Oct.08, 2010, under Movies

The lead actress list for Gravity is still growing. Sandra Bullock is now reportedly in negotiations, after it was reported a month ago that Natalie Portman was the likely candidate, and previous to that Angelina Jolie was expected to be the lead. Gravity, directed by Alfonso Cuaron, is about a woman trapped alone aboard a space station after an accident kills the rest of the crew.
