Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, the most nominated film at the Screen Actors Guild’s SAG Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globes,
We might as well talk about some actual awards. The New York Film Critics Circle and National Board of Review both announce their picks next week, but the indie circuit brought the major awards updates of the week. The Gotham Independent Film Awards took place on Monday night and offered

This week we review The Master, Room 237, Rust and Bone and A Royal Affair. We also have a new found appreciation for Katy Perry’s firework and we’re not entirely sure where we stand with World War Z. Download Episode MOVIE REVIEWS Dan – The Master, Room 237 Mal –
This week’s title might come across as rude, but how much of the last week actually affected the Oscar race? It seems we may have already reached that dreaded point where events and precursors point to conclusions we’ve already figured for ourselves. It’s only a matter of time before people
The awards season never comes without a few curveballs, and Fox Searchlight just threw one our way. Last week, the distributor announced that Sacha Gervasi’s feature-film debut Hitchcock, about the legendary director and his making of the horror classic Psycho, will arrive in limited release on Nov. 23, 2012.
