For the uninitiated, Divyanka who never shies away from speaking her mind had taken to the microblogging site to share her thoughts on the ongoing debate about Sushant. She had tweeted, “My view on today's social situation- Debate proves useful in continuous progress. But, baseless defamation and mudslinging' should be avoided.

Except that it didn’t. Salazar did little to tamp down on the lawlessness at MMS, beyond referring a few employees for criminal prosecution and ending a Bush-era program that allowed oil companies to make their “royalty” payments – the amount they owe taxpayers for extracting a scarce public resource – not in cash but in crude. And instead of putting the brakes on new offshore drilling, Salazar immediately throttled it up to record levels. Even though he had scrapped the Bush plan, Salazar put 53 million offshore acres up for lease in the Gulf in his first year alone – an all-time high. The aggressive leasing came as no surprise, given Salazar’s track record. “This guy has a long, long history of promoting offshore oil drilling – that’s his thing,” says Kierán Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity. “He’s got a highly specific soft spot for offshore oil drilling.” … [Read more...] about The Spill, The Scandal and the President

In terms of the key films with distribution already that are using exposure on the fall fest circuit to jump into the Oscar race, beware. September is the new July as far as this Oscar season is concerned, and you have a very long road to travel if you want to be front of mind come the new year, when the season will really kick into gear. Kate Winslet, Saoirse Ronan, Frances McDormand, Regina King, Anthony Hopkins and maybe a few others are clearly on the trail. You can tell that already by the arranged awards already planned, or announced. In fact, Ammonite star Winslet, The Father star Hopkins, and Nomadland director Chloe Zhao were all tapped to receive Telluride’s Silver Medallion awards before that fest was canceled, and the trio are also the main honorees of the Toronto Film Festival Tribute Awards being presented on Tuesday. Their films are undoubtedly the most Oscar-baity on view in a thin fall fest year. I am embargoed from saying much about Ammonite until … [Read more...] about Oscars: Fall Film Fest Circuit Aims To Promote Early Contenders McDormand, Winslet, Hopkins, King, And More – But Is It Just Too Damn Early?
