Oscar Buzz

The King’s Speech has frequently been mentioned as a possible Oscar Nominee, so fingers-Xd.
Tom O'Neil at the LA Times
“…the movie that the Weinstein Co. is pushing hard for the best picture Oscar is The King's Speech”

THR By Alex Ben Block ”The pics seen as worthy of Academy consideration are "The King's Speech," starring Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter, which goes out limited Nov. 24”

Opposing Views "Tom Hooper's The King's Speech (which has a shot at a Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor nomination for Colin Firth)"

No Golden Lion?

Though the film had been touted as a candidate for the Venice Festival, sadly it is not on the Venice lineup as listed at

On The Horizon

Cassandra Clare’s audiobook Clockwork Angel read by Jennifer Ehle is due to be released this month on August 31, 2010 and can be pre-ordered at Amazon.

I wish there were more to report, but no new roles (that we know about) announced at this time. There’s hope, though, since Ms Ehle has sometimes stacked multiple projects in the autumn/winter. But her unpredictable side is one of her most beguiling features, so I’m sure she’ll manage to surprise us in one way or another.
