December 14th, 2010 Nominations & Awards

Well, not Mia exactly. But “Alice in Wonderland” is! How cool is that? I really hope this time the award will go where it should. And what do you think about its chances and other nominees?

Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
“Alice in Wonderland”
“The Kids Are All Right”
“The Tourist”

I’ve decided to do small movies update today! I’ve added posters from “Restless” and “Jane Eyre” as well as 390+ HQ screencaptures from film “Cosette” Mia did back in 2007.

Cosette lives a sheltered, ignorant life in an isolated world with her alternative-lifestyle father Jim. When Jim suddenly dies, Cosette is left to fend for herself. Scared and hungry, she embarks on a perilous journey across land and water and discovers that the world she thought existed is not nearly as horrible as her father led her to believe.

#20. Jane Eyre – Cary Fukunaga

On March 11th, Focus Features releases Cary Fukunaga’s Jane Eyre in theaters. Even if Sundance was home to Cary Fukunaga’s breakout debut Sin Nombre, I seriously doubt whether the film the classic will take up a spot. Berlin appears to be a more likely candidate. Starring Michael Fassbender, Mia Wasikowska, Sally Hawkins, Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots and Judi Dench, this one is a slimmer than slim prediction on our part.

Based on Moira Buffini’s screenplay adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s’ classic, Jane Eyre (Wasikowska), flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester (Fassbender). The isolated and imposing residence – and Mr. Rochester’s coldness – have sorely tested the young woman’s resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. As Jane reflects upon her past and recovers her natural curiosity, she will return to Mr. Rochester – and the terrible secret that he is hiding…


I’ve found a video of Mia accepting the award at the Hollywood Awards Gala, enjoy!

Descending upon the Beverly Hilton Hotel for a red carpet affair, Mia Wasikowska turned up for the 14th Annual Hollywood Awards Gala in Beverly Hills on Monday evening.

“Pride and Prejudice And Zombies” is back from the undead. Err, it’s come back to life? No that doesn’t work either…. Though within the span of one week it lost its director and its lead actress, the picture is actually rising from the grave once again.

Deadline is reporting that Bradley Cooper and Scarlett Johansson are names that O. Russell had in mind for the lead roles of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet before he left and still should be considered the frontrunners. Meanwhile Lionsgate is claiming no cast has been named yet, but “other actors” are in the mix.

And Pajiba, who seem to shying away from reporting news stories on their blog, instead noting news on their Twitter feed, may have solved who those people are reporting that, Mia Wasikowska, Tilda Swinton and Catherine O’Hara are also possible actresses for the lead, Bennet, Lady Catherin and Mrs. Bennett respectively. Wasikowska would be a good fit, but won’t Cary Fukunagas “Jane Eyre” be slightly too similar of period pieces even though Bronte and Austen’s style and tone are vastly different? Swinton and O’Hara though, do sound like deliciously good choices and we hope they stick.
