Lone Survivor? Llewyn Davis sure isn’t

Well, we sure didn’t expect to ever have that as our lead-in image this season, but the Writers Guild of America managed to fling us a surprise today by nominating the Mark Wahlberg action flick Lone Survivor in their Best Adapted Screenplay category.

Oscar Shocker: The Past and Wadjda Don’t Make the Foreign Film Shortlist

The shortlist for the Foreign Language Film Oscar was revealed today and most notably for what was missing rather than what made it. Iran’s The Past, from Asghar Farhadi, was surprisingly snubbed. His A Separation won this award just two years ago and was seen as a frontrunner here. Also missing, and also a deemed front runner, was Saudi Arabia’s ...
