Thanks to a secret screening at Cineworld, where the audience had no idea which film we had got tickets to see. This film had a sneaky preview on Monday night. Was very pleased when we found out it was this film, as the trailer has been going around for quite a while now and it had built up suspense surrounding this film. That is something that does not disappoint . . .
Screenwriter Marty is struggling to write his latest film but has the title Seven Psychopaths. With help from his friend Billy he ends up being mixed up with all the wrong people in LA . . . Believe it or not psychopaths!
Jamie (Kunis) and Dylan (Timberlake) meet after she headhunts him for a job for GQ in New York. Leaving him with a choice to move away from LA to NYC, which he does and they soon become close friends . . . but how close is too close?
The day eventually arrived and the nominations have now been released (I now know which films I have to watch before 7th March) and we can all start debating and creating our predictions on who is going to walk away with the golden statue come Oscar night.
We go back to 10 nominations for Best Picture and an animated film has been included in those 10, that being Up. Now that will cause a lot of debate because from what I have read people preferred Wall-E to Up. From my first look at the nominations the only suprise for myself is seeing District 9 in the Best Picture cateogry. Everything else is pretty much what was expected.
The Blind Side
The Hurt Locker
A Serious Man
Up in the Air
The award season was well and truly kicked off last night with the 15th Annual Critics Choice Awards.
I think most of it is pretty predictable. We will have to see how the Golden Globes go on Sunday night.
The winners are . . .
23rd January 2010 the awards voted by actors for actors will be awarded. I have only posted up the film related awards, another pointer to who will win the Oscar? Just maybe. The nominations are . . .

The 67th Annual Golden Globes take place on 17th January 2010 and are the first major awards to be handed out in what will be another busy awards season. Because I had been slipping with the blog for the last few weeks I still had not posted this years nominations.
Closer to the ceremony I will post my predictions on who I think will walk away with the Golden Globe on the night.
Diana (Demi Moore) and David Murphy (Woody Harrelson) are a married couple who have been together for a long time, they have money problems and find themselves in Las Vegas trying to win the money they need in order to keep their house. John Gage (Robert Redford) spots Diana and offers to buy her a dress, but she says she is not for sale. Then he makes them a very strange and unreal offer of $1 million for her to have sex with him. Diana and David decide to go ahead with it as they really need the money. But will it really be the end of it once they leave and go back home? At first yes that is all fine, but after a while when David starts asking questions and wants to know exactly what happened it is bound to go wrong. Diana going and trying to have a relationship with John, was that really the best idea in the world. I mean after the way they met and started out was it really going to work out? The answer to that was always going to be no, it could never work out. Although I did actually like the way he started going on about a million dollar club in order to stop it form hurting him more than it actually did, that kind of changed my mind about John and that he did actually want to be with Diana. But we have a decision to make at the ending whether or not Diana and David really gave it another go after sitting in the place he had proposed 7 years earlier.
Bradley seems to be wanted for a lot of roles at the moment . . . and I for one am certainly not complaining about that, haha.
Actor Bradley Cooper has set the record straight about the upcoming A-team movie – insisting he has not been signed up to play Faceman in the new film.
Cooper was recently linked to the big screen role of Lieutenant Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck, made famous by Dirk Benedict in the hit 1980s TV series.
But the star insists comments he made about the project were taken out of context – as he hasn’t even read a script for the A-Team picture.
He tells Chud.com, “A guy came up to me and asked about the character Faceman in The A-Team. I said ‘Oh, that’s out there already?’, but my point was that news about the film is out there. Literally that people knew about the remake, that’s it. I haven’t read a script or met (director) Joe Carnahan.”
The film, scheduled for release in 2010, is rumoured to boast an all-star cast including Bruce Willis, Woody Harrelson and rapper Common.
