    According to Christopher Lee in his Christmas video, that Saurman will have more screen time in TABA.

    Will Saruman also take a journey that's suicidal to confirm something he's 99% sure of? It would help with the general theme of bloating the script out if he did!

    Wonder if this scene will be in the Extended Edition of TDOS or it's a scene in TABA

    I'd like to wish a (late) Happy Birthday to our favourite Warmaster, Graham McTavish. He made Dwalin a memorable character, and showed us that even boisterous bruisers have emotional depths. And to celebrate, here is an interview in which he talks about the Hobbit and other projects (he's got quite the sense of humour, that one). And hurray for the nod to Emily Brontë's dogs in naming Dwalin's axes!

    In other news, here is a two-parter interview with Orlando Bloom, Lee Pace and Richard Armitage:

    Speaking of awards, TDOS has got two BAFTA nominations, as well as one from the Costume Designers' Guild:

    And WB has just opened a nifty "For Your Consideration" awards website/ebook, which includes most of the above videos:

    Such negativity in here. :p

    TDOS accomplished another thing that was also accomplished by AUJ; making me look forward to the next December.

    Do you mean another thing in addition to the persistent diluting of the original story for nakedly commercial ends?

    Were the WB execs extremely drunk when they decided it would be a good idea to make a "for your consideration..." video for this movie?

    If they think they have a fair shot at winning, then why not? It's not you they have to convince, it's the Academy members...

    Yeah but there's a raft of really good pictures up for contention. Since the Academy has a bias for films of agreed quality winning best picture...

    How is it you expect that they have a fair shot at beating 12 Years a Slave; Gravity; Philomena; Captain Phillips; Her, or The Wolf of Wall Street?

    Do you think that Richard Armitage could beat out Chiwetel Eijofor, Joaquin Phoenix or Leo DiCaprio?

    Maybe Evangeline Lilly could surprise us by taking the statue from Dame Judy Dench, Cate Blanchett or Sandra Bullock?

    There's just no way.

    Judy Dench is half-blind nowadays, so I think it's entirely possible Evangeline Lilly could get away with it.

    Even still... You'll never know if you can win unless you at least try. If you've got a dream job, then no matter how slim the chances, you do submit your application, right? The same logic works here. If they don't make it, they don't. But there's no reason not to give the movie a fighting chance.
