Love you, Toups.

To start, the major CANNES winners from May!

Palme d'Or: Winter Sleep (Nuri Bilge Ceylan)

Grand Prix: The Wonders (Alice Rohrwacher)

Jury Prize: TIE; Mommy (Xavier Dolan) & Goodbye to Language (Jean Luc Godard)

Director: Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher)

Screenplay: Andrey Zvyagintsev & Oleg Negin (Leviathan)

Actor: Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner)

Actress: Julianne Moore (Maps to the Stars)

The Toronto International Film Festival ends tomorrow, so their awards will be posted in the next couple days.

I was so happy to see Julianne Moore get recognized at Cannes. She always comes out like a bridesmaid at the major awards so to see her finally win a big one was awesome. And my love for Xavier Dolan knows no bounds, so him pulling out the Jury Prize, when he was in such an underrated position to do so, was inspiring.

Now that it seems "Serena" is finally getting released, I have to wonder if JLaw will snag another nom. Looks really good.

I thought it looked like a huge snooze alert. She'll probably lazily get another nomination, definitely of a Golden Globe at least, this one undeserved. Plus, Bradley Cooper does not work in that role at all. Of course, I only formed my opinion from the trailer alone, so I reserve the right to change my mind if need be.

Bright Eyes - the trailer was a little boring, however, I doubt the movie will be. Have you read the book? Serena is literally one of the most evil/deranged characters out there. Not sure why the trailer downplayed that (probably to try to convince audiences this is another Bradly/JLaw "love affair" story), but if the script is halfway decent, JLaw will earn that Oscar nom. Serena is a great character.

Yeah, the trailer didn't give that off at all. I had heard about her playing that type of character in an upcoming film, but I wasn't sure if it was this one. Personally, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones for The Theory of Everything are who I will be rooting for this awards season.

Yeah, I'm not sure why the trailer downplays that. Hopefully we will get a different version that incorporates it.

I really want to see The Theory of Everything.

So the People's Choice Award is the top prize at TIFF?

Yes. 12 Years a Slave won last year. I think it's a safe bet that The Imitation Game will at least get nominated for Best Picture. Benedict Cumberbatch may snag his first Oscar nod and since they have nominated her before, Keira Knightley could be in the running for a nomination as well.

Deauville doesn't give a strong glimpse for Best Picture at the Oscars, but it does further the acclaim for Whiplash, which also won big at Sundance and helps Miles Teller's chances of being nominated. Some are saying JK Simmons could land himself a supporting nomination as well. At the very least, you'll probably see Whiplash garner some Independent Spirit Award nominations.

Deauville Film Festival - http://www.festival-deauville.com/DEV/index.php?pid=79

Grand Prize: Whiplash

Jury Prize: The Good Lie

--

The International Critics Award went to David Robert Mitchell's It Follows, who has ATWT alum Jake Weary (Kim Zimmer's son) amongst its cast. (P.S. These awards were given out about the same time as TIFF.)

The 18th Hollywood Awards aired Friday night. A full list of winners - http://www.hollywoodawards.com/winners/

Film: Gone Girl

Director: Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game)

Actor: Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game)

Actress: Julianne Moore (Still Alice)

Supporting Actor: Robert Duvall (The Judge)

Supporting Actress: Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game)

The Skins fan in me is ecstatic that Jack O'Connell is really making a name for himself. It's so great to see a favourite actor rise and rise.

They gave Eddie Redmayne the breakthrough actor award, so it seems he and Cumberbatch are the biggest obstacles to winning an Oscar in the best actor category.

Please, for the love of God, let this be Julianne Moore's year. I am hoping so hard.

    • I also wanted to say that my middle school years were spent in eastern Massachusetts, near Boston, where some of those towns are naturally gothic and a bit witchy (and not just the original Salem lol). I was part of a Catholic family and there were a big Irish Catholic presence where I grew up, but my mom was foreign (French), and so we weren't as closely embraced in that community where people had long generational ties to the area. So I got to observe a lot about how these communities hummed. There were cultures of silence and unspoken little scandals. The Catholic aspect always held an element of karma or superstition! And it was cold and icy winter conditions for about 4-5 months of the year. For these reasons, Days during Reilly's run resonated with me, and I felt like he understood the soul of a place like the one I lived in. His last name certainly made me wonder if he came from there. And given that he lived a somewhat-hermit-like existence (long winters do that to you) with a close friend, an ex-priest, I often wondered if he was writing from New England and somewhat immersed in that world.
    • Andy said on his radio show that Adriana is a friend because they didn't want to have too many housewives. That is stupid IMO because 7 would've been fine. He said she's in every episode and will seem full time and from the trailer she's giving more than some of the mojito holders. Just an odd, odd move. I also find all the Marysol to be odd since she's also a friend. Marysol also seems more interesting than she was before.    I was convinced it was going to be terrible based on the lack of promo, but the RHOC premiere was the best opening episode for any of the shows that premiered this year. I feel like most have a big hook to draw you in, but it takes weeks to get there as we saw with RHOBH and RHOSLC. With OC, it kicked off right away. They did everything right. They reintroduced Heather, gave us house porn and a proper update on her family and life. Then they got us all caught up on Emily and Gina and gradually introduced the newbies. This all led to whispers of a secret and they left us with a great cliffhanger! No "wait 10 episodes for the drama to start," they literally just gave it to us. I thought everybody brought it and I think RHOC is going to have a good season.
    • Couldn't have said it better myself @titan1978. Reilly's run during most of the first half of the 90s was Must Watch TV. I used to watch with friends and almost every episode (especially the Friday cliff-hangers) gave us goose bumps while watching, there was so much going on and they were so exciting. And I'm not talking cheap-thrills exciting, I'm talking Sami going from problem child to villainess, Marlena and John struggling with their attraction to each other (which FYI had been established for at least two years before the incident on John's private jet!). People's relationships with each other across the cast of characters were being fleshed out with care, hitting all the marks, never rushed, but you always felt there was momentum in these relationships and you didn't always know where they were going. Reilly was invested in this gothicky little town of Salem -- where most scenes seemed to take place after sundown (!!) -- and the denizens. He clearly loved writing for Marlena and her torment as she tried to do the right thing while staying honest with herself, but I never felt the other characters were shortchanged. And Reilly really painted a picture of a community, with all the age groups represented. I have such happy memories of Days during this time -- a golden age for soaps in general, IMO, because TPTB put in the effort and seemed to care about the stories and characters. Like on Days TPTB seemed caught up in the whirl and excitement of certain SLs the way the viewers did.
    • Love of Life Dr Brett (minister who married Vanessa and Paul Raven) Jack Davis 1954 You have him as marrying Van and Bruce, which may have been the case. Gloria Gloria Hamilton She was singer at Hal Craig and Meg's supper club.
    • Esme/Nik would be hilarious. The thought had never occurred to me, but I'm not against it. Anything would be more interesting than her pointlessly standing around in all of Spencer's scenes.
