For Your Consideration 2013: Labor Day

As far as “Labor Day” goes, I’ve heard literally nothing about the film. With a late start date and no reviews surfacing yet, the only thing we have to go on is those involved their history with the Oscars.

For Your Consideration 2013: Nebraska

Alexander Payne has won 2 Oscars for his writing work (“Sideways” & “The Descendants”).

That being said, Bruce Dern’s performance is being raved about from the few critics that have seen it. Being apart of Cannes … Read More For Your Consideration 2013: Nebraska

Look at Demian Bichir in “A Better Life”, nominated for Best Actor last year. … Read More For Your Consideration 2012: Not Fade Away
