Don't expect to see Winter's Bone, King's Speech, Toy Story 3, Never Let Me Go, and How to Train Your Dragon nominated for the WGA Awards. The Writers Guild of America have revealed the list of eligible films, and none of the previously mentioned highly acclaimed movies/screenplays are on the ballot. Before you get up in arms, you must realize that the guild's rules restrict nominations to productions aren't produced by WGA members or under WGA guidelines. Other films missing from the WGA ballot include Biutiful, The Ghost Writer, Nowhere Boy, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World and The Way Back. Of the animated feature films, Zack Snyder's Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole passed, while more highly acclaimed movies like Pixar's Toy Story 3 and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon were deemed ineligible. Last year, several of the high-profile award contenders weren't eligible for WGA Awards, »

With 10 days until Oscar, it's time for theme days. Today's special: Precious.
A couple of days ago I had the opportunity to speak with director Lee Daniels of Precious fame. He was in the middle of a commute from one campaign destination to another. He's not running for public office but Best Director (though that's nearly our favorite sort of public office, don'cha know. What's more public than the Oscars?). From roughly October through February, the Oscar grind devours people: festivals, speaking engagements, parties, premieres, awards shows, travel. I imagine you get through it by way of adrenaline, the psychological boost of a coveted nomination from your peers (or the chance of one prior to January), and sheer force of will. A good sense of humor can't hurt. Daniels definitely had one, laughing at the connection glitches we had and riffing on misheard words that come with interviews on the go-go-go. »

Remember the 1987 fantasy-comedy "Mannequin" starring Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattrall? It was about a guy (MCarthy) who falls in love with a department store mannequin (that only he can see). Yes, I realize that sounds strangely similar to the plot of "Weird Science" and oddly, even the 1980s children's show "Today's Special."
In any event, it appears that "Mannequin" is the next film that producers want to update for the 2010s. Moviehole.com says that the newly reformed Gladden Entertainment is in early development to remake the film and that they are currently hunting for a writer and in talks with a studio.
Now, I won't lie. I loved "Mannequin" as a little kid (I was maybe 4 when it came out, so I first saw it on HBO a year later or so), but when I re-watched it a few years ago (during a James Spader-marathon), let's just say »
