The Oscar race won’t really begin for another few weeks, but given some recent developments – an infamous name change being among them – I figured I’d go ahead and resume Oscar Watching. Even before the Toronto International Film Festival kicks into gear, I’ve had to revise quite a few

Well, last night happened. Seth MacFarlane hosted, balancing the did-you-just-go-there style of humor for which he’s so often known and the showmanship you’d expect from an Oscar host. He took to the challenge, and for the most part, he landed. Yes, I would more openly welcome Tina Fey and Amy

I had the chance to see Michael Haneke’s Palme d’Or-winning Amour (Love) over the weekend. It also played the AFI Fest – and we’ll be talking about that in a bit – but I saw it here on the East Coast. The French-language aspect might hinder its chances at Oscar
