There are several big release this week which include: The Adventures of Tintin, The Descendants, My Week with Marilyn and Young Adult. Each of these films were nominated during this years awards season. Which included oscar nominations for George Clooney for his terrific role in The Descendants and Michelle Williams for her wonderful portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn and her co-star Kenneth Branagh was nominated for an Oscar for his role as well. Shailene Woodley, who stars on The ABC Family hit show The Secret Life of the American Teenager, also got a Golden Globe nomination for her role in The Descendants. Charlize Theron got a Golden Globe nomination and Patton Oswalt was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for their roles in Young Adult. Many other nominations happened for the films as well.
