Courtesy ABCAnd now for the awards portion of the evening! Full disclosure: the three of us have seen only five of the Best Picture nominees. Not that it matters. So:
In: Portman and Franco. Out: Moore and Wahlberg.
One would have to be as nutty as outgoing New York Film Critics Circle chairman and New York Press film critic Armond White to attempt to refute his lies, exaggerations, fantasies, smears and false assumptions point by point -- especially since he tends to project his own intentions onto his ...

Nah. Those entitled phonies are sitting there lapping up the glory--and free drinks--and they could certainly deal with a few potshots, especially on a dignity-free night when The Tourist is up for Best Picture and Dame Judi Dench is nominated opposite Jennifer Love Hewitt! At least that's the poi ... More >>
The King's Speech...along with those of other esteemed movieland pundits, as told to Goldderby.com. The gum-flapping gang has anointed The King's Speech, Colin Firth, Annette Bening, and Danny Boyle as the golden ones who will step up to the podium without that much in their way.

According to reports, Kathlyn Beatty -- born 18 years ago as the daughter to Warren Beatty and Annette Bening -- is living as a man named Stephen Ira and plans to fully transition. Supposedly, Warren is really upset. Maybe he doesn't want the competition?
