Rant: Corey Haim Should Have Been In Oscar's In Memoriam Tribute
Shame on you, Academy Awards. It’s been almost a year since Corey Haim died. He went out with a whimper. Broke, addicted and cohabitating with his mother, the former child star had little in common at the end of his life with the fresh-faced boy

We’ve been talking for several weeks now about The Weinstein Company’s disturbing plan to censor the Oscar nominated film The King’s Speech in order to curry favor with the MPAA, receive a PG-13 rating, and re-release the film in the hopes that the lesser rating will help make them more money.

Black Swan's Greatest Trick Was Convincing Oscar That It Isn't Horror
There’s a formula you can follow to work your way in contention for the top prize at the Academy Awards. Heavy drama plus a few well placed laughs and two or three scenes that leave the audience choked with tears and you’ll have no problem landing among the elite ten being scrutinized for the Oscar’s best picture.

The King's Speech Is Only A Frontrunner Because It's Manufactured Oscar Bait
Last year the Academy Awards expanded its Best Picture category to have ten nominees instead of five, something not done since 1943.

The King's Speech Dominates BAFTA Awards
The BAFTA’s are, for all intents and purposes, the British Oscars. They were held tonight and, in the process of handing out their annual awards, they confirmed what everyone already knew about the Oscar race: There are only two contenders. The King’s Speech won nearly everything that the Orange British Academy Film Awards had to offer, and whatever it didn’t win The Social Network nabbed. The King’s Speech won seven awards in total.
