The road to the Oscars is very much starting with the nominations coming out thick and fast for all of the other awards shows.

The 2011 Tony Awards are taking place in a couple of weeks now and a lot of my favorite actors and actresses are going to be attending the event. I think its also very good to see how many of them have crossed over from the stage to the silver screen and starring in many different films.
Daniel Radcliffe, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Whoopi Goldberg will present Tonys during the June 12 ceremony honoring Broadway’s best.
Also slated to hit the stage at the Beacon Theater are Chris Rock, Alec Baldwin, Samuel L. Jackson, Kelsey Grammer, Viola Davis, Vanessa Redgrave, James Earl Jones and Harry Connick, Jr.
Christie Brinkley, David Hyde Pierce, Marg Helgenberger, Matthew Broderick, Angela Lansbury, Jim Parsons, Joel Grey, Patrick Wilson and Robert Morse will also appear.
Emmy winner Neil Patrick Harris returns to host the 65th annual show, after a successful attempt last year.
I actually attended the 2008 Tony Awards when Whoopi Goldberg was the presenter.
I must start this review by saying this is the best film I have seen for quite a while, and I am hoping that I will continue to say that about films in the next couple of months as we move closer to awards season.
A frustrated man decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets one of his family’s killers free. He targets not only the killer but also the district attorney and others involved in the deal.
I think this is very interesting to see who will be able to vote for future Academy Award winners.
Heath Ledger’s ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams, Casey Affleck and Emily Blunt are among the 134 stars and moviemakers who have been invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – the organisation behind the Oscars.
The celebrities, executives and behind-the-scenes experts invited to become a part of the Academy Awards will be able to vote for the winners of the 2010 prizegiving in March.
Academy President Sid Ganis says, “These filmmakers have, over the course of their careers, captured the imagination of audiences around the world. It’s this kind of talent and creativity that make up the Academy, and I welcome each of them to our ranks.”
New members will be welcomed into the Academy at an invitation-only reception at the Fairbanks Center for Motion Picture Study in Beverly Hills in September.
Other invitees include Michael Cera, 2009 Oscar nominees Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis, James Franco, Anne Hathaway and 2009 Oscars host Hugh Jackman.
I love reading stories of how different actors deal with doing scenes and stuff like that. Plus this is about Meryl !!!
Doubt stars Meryl Streep and Viola Davis found a little light relief in between takes of their harrowing scenes in the film by talking about bad feet and food.
Streep’s stern nun character had to break it to Davis’ worried mum that she thought her son was being abused by a priest – and the scenes between them helped both actresses earn Oscar nominations.
And now Davis reveals the two stars were anything but serious in between the tears and the tension.
She tells WENN, “We talked about cooking! I really thought about it too. I was thinking, ‘I’m with Meryl Streep, I could ask her about Sophie’s Choice and Out of Africa and A Cry in the Dark. I could tell her I love her! And we’re talking about cooking!’
“At one point, she said, ‘How are your feet, by the way? Do you have good feet?’ I said, ‘My feet are pretty good. How are your feet?’ And she said, ‘Oh, my feet are terrible. Do you want some chocolate?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I want some chocolate.’ That was our conversation.
“I think it’s because what happens when you’re shooting a scene is the natural rapport of what your characters are going through extends into real life. And, with our characters, it’s kind of tense and we were a little tense with each other, but I kind of like her.
“My character, Mrs. Miller, thinks Sister Aloysius is a bit of a bulldog, but we would have a casual relationship if it weren’t for this confrontation, so I think it naturally happened that we talked about feet and cooking!”
Some pictures from the 2009 Oscars . . . on the red carpet.
Starting with my favorite man at the moment, Mickey Rourke. I thought he looked great as he kept his own style and went for something totally different. I want to know what was going on with Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s hat, I mean its the Oscars, come on no beanie type hats.
I have doubts. I have such doubts.
The setting for this film which is based on a play, is 1964 at St. Nicholas school in the Bronx. The Principal Sister Aloysius Beauvier (Meryl Streep) who loves nothing more than to terrify the children as she is a big believer in discipline. Sister James (Amy Adams) has just started teaching and does not have any of the same mannerisms as Sister Aloysius. Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman) a well liked priest is popular in the local community with the Sunday masses he does the sermon for.
