  1. Okay. Guess I have to watch “Moneyball” to see what all the hooplah about Jonah Hill is all about. After ‘Babysitters’ movie.–meh. Rooney Mara–okay. I truly like the RWA selections much better. Redemption!

    • I liked Moneyball but didn’t think it was special in any way. I need to see it again I guess but as of now, I think it’s wildly overrated. Brad Pitt gives a much better performance in The Tree of Life and Jonah Hill, while solid, really doesn’t do much of anything in the movie.

      • Curious that so many still find Moneyball nothing special. I thought it was great. I’m not a baseball movie fan, yet still found it to be great. Glad that Jonah Hill got his nod. hope it leads to better roles for him.

  2. I’m happy to see a couple of my nominees walking away with Red Web awards. Although I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who nominated them.

    Bucky Larson is uniquely deservant. smh

    Yeah for “Drive”, this takes a bit of sting out of the Oscar blanking.

  3. Stan is hosting? For sure I’ll be watching! 😀 Oooh look at that dashing Fassy there, too bad he’s snubbed at the Oscars. Shame is not my cup of tea but from what I heard his performance is such a tour de force.

    • It took a little bit of string-pulling, but I was able to book Stan Lee! Woohoo! Negotiations finalized just 2 days ago, which is why I couldn’t officially announce it last week when we were still in talks! 🙂

      I haven’t seen Shame either, but I am glad to see Fassbender win the prestigious RWA!

      Thanks for being on the panel this year again Ruth!

  4. I think I am missing something about Rooney Mara’s performance. As I have said, I really liked this version, but I just have not elevated her performance in my mind at least as one of the best of the year.

    I will be catching Moneyball sooner rather than later – have a write-up for the LAMB coming soon.

  5. Ah, I am watching Moneyball today or tomorrow 😀

    Well my movies and actors that I was rooting for didn’t have much success, but at least Rango won! Thanks very much Mr. T for asking me to be a judge!

  6. These are all very worthy winners, spot on Mr Focused Filmographer!

    I finally watched Rango over the weekend and I LOVED it. I’m surprised it was rated PG, though, I won’t let my kids see it until they are teenagers! 😛

    Roll on the 3rd Red Web Awards!

    • Thanks for participating in this year’s Red Web Awards!! Man it was a lot of fun, and I am glad for all the winners!

      Ooh, I’m excited that you loved Rango! Me too. You’re right about the rating…I felt the exact way.

      Next year will be here before you know it. 🙂

    • glad that you were able to be a part of this year’s RWAs. It was so much fun and I am quite pleased with the overall results. It’s too bad the Academy doesn’t consider more of the people’s choice, but ultimately, it doesn’t really matter I suppose. ha
