And having picked up the big one at the recent Golden Globes, Avatar looks set to sweep up much in the same way that Slumdog Millionaire did 12 months ago. Precious...

2010 Oscars: Been There, Done That Thanks to Golden Globes

user
Well, after watching the Golden Globe Awards ceremonies last evening, I had the distinct feeling: who needs the Oscars? I've already seen the winning films, directors and actors and heard their acceptance speeches. The Oscar ceremony, which is not scheduled until six weeks from now, seems quite besides the point. Except for the fashion ("who are you wearing?" is the question of the moment), I am imagining that last night's Golden Globe winners will be simply re-doing their "best of" acceptance...

Coming at You: Dueling 3-D Films for memorial day ...2009

user
Movie theaters typically love having two big-budget movies butting heads on a holiday weekend because that will keep cash registers whirring at cinema complexes.

DreamWorks' "Monsters vs. Aliens" will be up against a potentially scarier creature: "Avatar," a science-fiction thriller...
