pssst. 7 Days Until Oscar Nominations!

Oscar ballots are due tomorrow, and for whatever problems AMPAS had with its non beta-tested new online voting system, only one measly 24 hour extension came their way. So we have to start drawing barely visiblie lines in the blog sand and collect ourselves to look back now that we're in the before & after week... "This is where we've been!". Just in case you've missed any of this film year's interviews *thus far* here they are collected for you. (I'll update this index when more 2012 related interviews come our way, via DVD releases, continuing Oscar campaigns and whatnot.) 


Alan Cumming in Any Day Now
Ann Dowd in Compliance
Eddie Redmayne in Les Misérables
Kerry Washington in Django Unchained
Logan Lerman in The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Nicole Kidman in The Paperboy
Nicole Kidman on the 10th anniversary of her Oscar win in The Hours

Impossibly Brief Chats

Last Season's Interviews: 
Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain, David Cronenberg etc...

Meanwhile I'm getting dreamy about 2013. It hasn't quite begun for us here at TFE Headquarters. Oscar Nomination Morning (January 10th) is when Santa brings us our presents (and lumps of coal) and Oscar Night is our New Year's Eve. Then the new year (read: the film year) begins. 

Up next: the 12th annual FiLM BiTCH AWARDS and the actual OSCAR NOMINATIONS

If Kidman gets nominated I'll be so happy. That's the only nod I truly want. But if I had my way I would love to see Weisz, Cotillard and something for Perks, too.

Fingers tightly crossed for Kidman.

I agree, Amy. Fingers tightly crossed! Kidman is the only actress who made me look forward to this year's Oscar race. And hers is the only nomination I care about. :)
