Notable Oscar Nomination Predictions: And the Winners Are*

February 26th, 2012 7:24pm EST
Oscars 2012
Last year, I wrote this whole piece about why The King’s Speech would beat out The Social Network for best picture. I found my own comments to be witty, on point. Genius. (I’m kidding… maybe). In fact, I love to go through the nomination list of the Academy Awards and Grammys every year and predict the winners, put up some jellybeans in a friend pool and brag about my winnings later.

The Grammys unfortunately are a joke, which is a huge shame given that music and the politics of it are my first love. The Oscars? Quite relevant, actually! My favorite writer (Grantland’s Bill Simmons) once s...

The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

"My Week With Marilyn" co-stars Michelle Williams and Eddie Redmayne shudder when they recall freezing skinny-dipping lake scenes they shot while making the movie - they had to hug each other in the water just to stop their lips from trembling.

Redmayne tells WENN, "It's meant to be a bucolic summer's day in England but it was actually shot in late November and although the sky is...

Two Jews' Review 'My Week With Marilyn' And See Oscar Nod For Michelle Williams (Video)

Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: When the film 'My Week With Marilyn' directed by Simon Curtis, begins we see Marilyn Monroe on a stage singing 'That Ole Black Magic'... That's who I thought it was, anyway.

It actually took me a few seconds before realizing that I was watching not Monroe, but Michelle Williams. That's how good she is in her portrayal of the damaged, insecure, extremely sensual, extremely vulnerable Hollywood icon/sex symbol known as Marilyn Monroe. Or to put it simply, Michelle William's performance blew me away.

And the rest of the film is pretty wonderful a...

Anthony Hopkins gave his "Thor" director Kenneth Branagh the confidence to portray acting great Lord Olivier on the big screen by telling the star all about his encounters with the legend.

Branagh was mulling over the idea of playing Olivier opposite Michelle Williams in "My Week With Marilyn" as he shot "Thor" - and he couldn't decide whether it was something he could pull off.

He says, "Tony had worked with Olivier himself. (He) knew him well, and had many war stories, many intimate observations of the way Olivier was, and that, to some extent, gave me the confidence to try and do it."
