Awards Blend: The Best Actor Race Is About To Get Bloody
Someone’s going to be left out in the cold. Several very talented and deserving people, in fact. There’s no avoiding it.

Clint Eastwood's New Movie Just Moved Up To Try And Win An Oscar
One of the many reasons Clint Eastwood remains a badass is his no-nonsense approach to filmmaking. When he makes a movie, he doesn't really want you to know about it, and he doesn't want to make a big stink out of how prolific he really is. Many times, that involves shooting a film as quick and efficiently as possible completely under the radar until the film is ready to hit theaters. It's only at that time that he'll grit his teeth and promote the work.
