It was a good night for director Paul Thomas Anderson and the cast of the film “The Master,” as the Toronto Film Critics handed out their picks for the year’s best.
The Venice Film Festival came to a close with an awards ceremony filled with suspense and controversy, “The Master” being judged TOO GOOD and having to give up one of its prizes because of a rule in the festival’s guideline preventing a single film from winning too many awards.

Philip Seymour Hoffman leads a group of Oscar-nominated heavyweights in the nominations for Best Actor in a Leading Role at Broadway’s Tony Awards.
Philip Seymour Hoffman, Oscar-winner for his turn in “Capote,” stars in Broadway’s revival of “Death of a Salesman.” His fellow nominees include “Frost/Nixon” star Frank Langella (for “Man and Boy”), TV giant John Lithgow (for “The Columnist”) and the inimitable golden-voiced James Earl Jones (Gore Vidal’s “The Best Man”).
Announced this morning, the Best Actress category features “Sex and the City’s” Cynthia Nixon (for “Wit”) and Stockard Channing (“Other Desert Cities”). David Alan Grier receives a nomination for Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess” and “The Amazing Spider-Man’s” own webbed-one, Andrew Garfield, received a nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play for his work alongside Seymour Hoffman in “Death of a Salesman” also.
The stars turned out in force last week for the 55th BFI London Film Festival currently taking place through October 27 in and around the Old Dart across the pond. While some huge films and mega-wattage celebs are still to walk the red carpet, the attendance thus far has been a little blinding.
George Clooney walked “The Ides of March” red carpet supported by new girlfriend Stacy Keibler, Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman and Evan Rachel Wood; he then walked the carpet again with Shailene Woodley for “The Descendants.” Madonna was supported by her actors and fashion designer legend Valentino for her directorial effort on “W.E.” – support she definitely needed after reportedly bearing the brunt of a booing crowd. The ever gorgeous Freida Pinto lit up the room for Michael Winterbottom’s film “Trishna,” and young Olsen sister Elizabeth Olsen continues to shine on the carpet for “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” Naked Chef Jamie Oliver came out to see “Wild Bill” and Harry Belafonte was also in attendance, supporting the new documentary about his legacy.
