academy awards

Syfy channel LogoThis is the season of Hollywood awards shows.  Some folks love the award shows and others seem to have tenuous,  strained relationships with their televisions while the awards shows are on because sometimes, that’s all that’s on.  No one wants to really compete with some of the various awards shows.

Que the Syfy channel to the rescue!  Yes, I just said that because Syfy has scheduled some theatrical movie marathons for the award days.

If you’re dreading Sunday, February 12th, the Syfy Grammy programming schedule wil start at 10 AM and run through to 5:30 AM the following morning.  This TV movie marathon will feature End of Days,  starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

If the Oscars aren’t your thing, Syfy will start it’s theatrical movie marathon at 10:30 AM and run through to 5 AM the next morning.  Resident Evil and Resident Evil: Apocalypse will be featured, starting  at 7 PM.

Sunday night the Academy Awards came and went, but with the event, came the Red Carpet gamut where actors, writers, directors and the like enter the gala event via the Red Carpet and field questions from press lined up along the pathway.

One of those who were captured for questions was writer/director Christopher Nolan as MTV grilled him on bits and pieces about his upcoming third installment of his Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises.

As has been the case up until now, Christoper Nolan has been mum / coy about the project and he remained such Sunday night when grilled.

He did indicate that once we all see the movie, The Dark Knight Rises, in 2012, we’ll all understand why he cast Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway.

So we continue to be kept in the dark, but rightfully so. Mr. Nolan wants to keep this close to the vest as various entities continue to take pot-shot guesses at casting and script tones. It’s fun to conjecture, but I’d rather just wait and see what Christopher NOlan has to say about the movie, when he decides to.
