THERE WILL BE BLOOD (Pozos De Ambición)


“There Will Be Blood” confirmed itself as the absolute winner in 2008’s edition of the Official Rober Awards. The Paul Thomas Anderson directed masterpiece earned five gongs, even when its cast was left empty handed. “Gomorrah”, the Italian film about the way today’s Mafia operates earned three Robers. Other multiple winners with two apiece were The Diving Bell & The Butterfly, Wall-E, Happy-Go-Lucky and Juno. The popular vote though went to The Dark Knight in six categories. Congratulations to the winners. The full list after the Jump.

“Pozos De Ambición” se ha erigido como la ganadora absoluta de la de los Premios Rober de Cine 2008.

Otros ganadores multiples, con dos cada, fueron “La Escafandra y La Mariposa”; “Wall-E”; “Happy, Un Cuento Sobre La Felicidad” y “Juno.” Los votos de la encuesta Rober-Paralelos fueron a parar en su mayoria a “El Caballero Oscuro”.

Oscars Special: Our Predictions


SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE

small-uk-flag.jpg Just one day before the Oscars ceremony takes place, a look at this year’s Hollywood picks shows one of the dullest havest in a long time. Everything points at a “Slumdog Millionaire” sweep, with the mediocre “Benjamin Button’s” hopes being relegated to a couple of technical statuettes. “Milk” will probably get the award reserved to the “rare and critical acclaimed” slot, the Best original script one. If the forecast is accurate, the significant changes announced for the show, masterminded by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) and presented by Hugh Jackman, promise to be more interested than the awards themselves.

Woody Allen visited Spain to showcase his thoughts about passion and love versus conventional relationships, being hailed as his most likeable work for a decade, after the British trilogy left a bad taste in everybody’s mouth.
