Oscar has spoken

by on Feb.23, 2009, under Awards

The Oscars are over (complete results here) – so, how did the SF&F world do this year? Well, in the mainline awards there weren’t too many nominations this year (and with Slumdog Millionaire in your category, forget winning), but as expected the late Heath Ledger won Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight (which also won Sound Editing), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button took several awards, and WALL-E won best animated film. Oh – and Hugh Jackman was actually interesting as host/performer, made fun of himself and even at the end of a musical number said, “I’m Wolverine!”

by on Feb.22, 2009, under Movies

Could Universal be planning on a yet another version of Battlestar Galactica? Glen A. Larson had been trying to resurrect his version of the show (as had Richard Hatch with a competing version, among others) when Universal elected to go with Moore and Eick version now finishing up on the SCI FI Channel. But now The Hollywood Reporter says that original series producer Larson may take another version to the big screen. Other than it seems to be yet another reboot, there are little details though.
