30th Annual Razzies Winners Announced: Sandra Bullock Accepts Hers in Person

The 30th Annual Raspberry Awards (the Razzies) have been announced, declaring the worst movies and performances of the year. Sandra Bullock, who is expected to win Best Actress at tonight’s Oscars ceremony, attended the anti-awards show to accept trophies for her performance in the critically panned All About Steve – which she also produced – […]

Oscar Predictions 2010

The Academy Awards are next Saturday, March 7, and here are FilmJabber’s Oscar predictions. The expansion from five to ten nominations for the coveted prize really hasn’t done much to make things more competitive, as it appears that it’s going to be a battle between Kathryn Bigelow and her former husband James Cameron for a […]

The Blind Side Movie Review: A Shot at Oscars?

In The Blind Side, Sandra Bullock pulls off her second box office feat of the year and writer/director John Lee Hancock exceeds expectations with one of the most satisfying drama-comedies of the year. The movie, about the story of NFL football player Michael Oher, is one the entire family can enjoy, even if none are […]

Movie Review: Oscar-Nominated New Boy

The 2009 Academy Awards debut next Sunday, and with it awards for all those short movies that no one has ever seen or heard about. One such live-action short nominated for an Oscar is New Boy, Ireland’s 11-minute entry written and directed by Steph Green. I normally don’t review short films, yet at the same […]

The Golden Globe Winners: The Right Choices?

I didn’t bother watching the Golden Globes on Sunday, generally because I don’t watch the Golden Globes ever. I remember tuning in a few years ago and thinking that it was one of the most boring award shows I’ve watched (then again, I generally only watch the Oscars). That being said, I was actually planning […]

The Golden Globes Prove They’re Stupid

We’ve known it for years. We even talk about it: The Golden Globes are stupid. They’re like an elementary version of the Oscars, a way for lesser films to earn awards that would never win Oscars. Yes, the Golden Globes are considered a precursor to the Oscars, and often help in predicting what will be […]

The Dark Knight Vetoed from Oscar Consideration

Unfortunately, The Dark Knight is not going to get the chance it deserves come next year’s Oscars. Apparently, according to Variety, the executive committee of the Academy Awards has ruled that the score for the A-rated Batman film is ineligible for competition because… it has too many composers. To me, this seems like just the […]

Critics Calling for Heath Ledger Oscar

On January 25, 2008, shortly after Heath Ledger’s death, I conjectured on whether the actor would win an Oscar posthumously for his portrayal of the Joker in the upcoming movie The Dark Knight. The Heath Ledger Oscar post is here, and examines the chances of actors winning awards after their deaths. It’s a rare feat […]

My Reactions to the Academy Awards

The Oscars are over, and it was a pretty good show. No Country for Old Men was the clear victor, taking Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Motion Picture. I would have liked to see things spread around a bit more as the competition was fierce (and, thanks to the lack […]
