Mamo #127: Happiness is a warm comedy

The box office provides the general grist for our mill this week in another edition of Mamo. Enjoy!

My thoughts:

The Dark Knight will get a BP slot.
Heath Ledger won't just be nominated, he will win. He's starting to win the precursors.
A lot of people felt he was robbed for BBM so it will be a makeup Oscar. I hope no one holds his drug abuse against him, it would be hypocritical sense the Academy had no problem giving an oscar to a very alive pedophile.

Best actress will be between Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep. Revolutionary Road has been getting shut out of the critic awards. Maybe Kate can win Best Supporting for The Reader.

Robert Pattinson is not attractive at all and neither is Kristen Stewart.

On Brad Pitt, he can't open a film in my opinion. I used to get pissed back in the day when he was making 20mil! He never earned it and Julia Roberts was still making around 12mil and she had hits under her belt. Nothing but sexism. Another reason Troy made so much was Orlando Bloom,not Brad Pitt. Lots of women, especially older ones, do not like him because he left his wife.

From Guillermo del Toro's entry in IMDB, here's what he has on the go:

- Bag of Bones (2009) (in production) (executive producer)
- Untitled Alfonso CuarĂ³n Project (2009) (in production) (producer)
- Mother and Child (2010) (pre-production) (producer)
- Hater (2010) (pre-production) (producer)
- Biutiful (2009) (filming) (producer)
- Rabia (2009) (post-production) (producer)
- Splice (2009) (post-production) (executive producer)
- Rudo y Cursi (2008) (producer)
- While She Was Out (2008) (executive producer)
- Cosas insignificantes (2008) (producer)

That man doesn't like to just sit around.

Also he wants to produce Neil Gaiman's Death: The High Cost Of Living, if only a studio will risk $10 to $15 million for Gaiman to direct it (he's directed his own short film and shadowed del Toro for a week on the set of Hellboy 2 asking all sorts of questions). Too bad with all these big blockbusters, most studios aren't looking to make 10 to 15 million dollar dramas.

@ Ky: Was surprised to see TDK left off the Golden Globes nomination but I don't think that necessarily shuts it out of consideration for a best picture Oscar. Ledger will definitely be nominated and I hope he will win, but I think it's less than a lock.

The pedophile you're referring to, I assume, is Polanski?

Thank you for your kind words re: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. :)

@ Matthew fabb: I had not heard that Del Toro was attached to Death: HCL, but it's not a bad idea. Gaiman directing it is definitely the only way to proceed. He can't do worse than Frank Miller...
