It was always a long-shot, my prediction that Hugh Jackman will win Best Actor for Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. If it were any other year, a non-DDL year, his chances would be a lot better. But, well, you know Daniel Day-Lewis. Still... I’m staying with my bet. Full Story

Why doesn’t it sound cheesy and skeevy when Hugh Jackman says it? When he repeatedly refers to his wife as “babe” up on stage, why is it that he can do this without making us cringe? Oh the power of Hugh Jackman. But before we gush about Hugh Jackman, can we please applaud everyone last night for calling it by its proper name: LES MISERABLES!?! There were hardly any instances of the dreaded “Les Mis”! Please click here Full Story

Many of you have emailed to fret about some of the reviews. Les Miserables is currently sitting at 72% on Rotten Tomatoes and 61% on Metacritic which doesn’t suck, no, but there have indeed been certain critics who’ve been vicious in their disdain: it’s so melodramatic, and amateurishly so; there are too many close-up shots when people are singing; there is too much singing. Full Story

I’m not posting the pictures. It’s really not all that interesting to me. And, frankly, the suggestion that she did it on purpose for her Oscar campaign is... really dumb. How could that possibly, possibly be part of an Oscar campaign strategy...? Why would seeing pap shots of Anne Hathaway’s pussy convince those old fart Academy members in Palm Springs -- who picked Crash over Brokeback, REMEMBER??? -- to vote for her? If, that is, they actually voted themselves. Full Story

Russell Crowe has been performing with Alan Doyle in New York on the weekends and on Saturday night they were at Joe’s Pub and this time Hugh Jackman was in the house so Russell asked him up on stage for The Confrontation and ...I actually might like this version better than the one in the movie. Full Story

The new issue of The Hollywood Reporter features Les Miserables -- its film history, the journey of this particular iteration under the direction of Tom Hooper, the production, and the cast. The story that’s told, at least at the beginning of the article, Nate Silver reference notwithstanding, is that this was always a risk. Full Story

As  mentioned yesterday, I screened Les Miserables in New York on the weekend but reviews are embargoed until closer to the release date. We are allowed however to post reaction to the film. My reaction is that I ugly-cried HARD. And that I love Hugh Jackman. People keep talking about how much weight Anne Hathaway lost to play Fantine. Full Story

At the premiere of my favourite movie of the year in Tokyo tonight as they make their way around the world, closer and closer to Christmas Day, as we wait impatiently ... At The Barricade! And then en route to Hollywood & Highland, the Dolby Theatre to fight it out with Argo and Lincoln. Since its screenings last weekend, according to expert “Oscarologist” predictions, Les Miserables has moved ahead of Argo and Lincoln. Full Story

Duana left early this morning for a meeting and then I rushed off to the airport to come to New York so... We didn’t get to watch this new Les Miserables trailer together holding hands! We didn’t get to watch this new Les Miserables trailer together and cry! This time they all sing. Full Story

Les Miserables on Election Night

Two new tv spots were released yesterday for Les Miserables, my favourite movie of the year. I already know it will be. I know I will love it. There is no way I won’t love it. The clips were broadcast across several networks during election coverage. Anyway, obviously, I cried during both. Full Story
