Love for the Ladies: 'Les Miserables' and 'Zero Dark Thirty' are Unwrapped

Two award season films that look as if they won't be screened here in Seattle before I have to submit my nomination ballot for the Critics Choice Awards are Universal's Les Miserables and Weinstein's Django Unchained. Both of those films, along with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty, have already enjoyed their first screenings in New York and Los Angeles or will be shortly. On Friday, Les Miserables screened at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall in New York and was very well received. Directed by Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) and featuring a cast that includes Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, the musical looks to become the first major musical Oscar contender since Chicago and has been my predicted Best Picture front-runner since my very first predictions this year and this first screening seems to suggest that just may be the way things turn out.
