Richard Gere was disappointed about his Oscar snub for "Chicago": "The actor, 63, admits he has never paid much attention to awards news, but when his pals Catherine Zeta-Jones, Queen Latifah, Renee Zellweger and John C. Reilly all landed nominations in the run-up to the 2003 Oscars, he felt more than a little left out by the snub. In an interview on U.S. talk show 'The View,' which aired on Friday (14Sep12), Gere, who played singing and dancing lawyer-for-hire Billy Flynn in the film, said, 'The only time it really bothered me was in "Chicago." Everyone else got nominated. I'm waiting for my name (to be read out in the nominations) and it goes right by me, like, "Wow, what happened?" I have to admit, that got to me.'" HOLLYWOOD.COM

Tom O'Neil discusses the Oscar race with Jeff Wells and Sasha Stone: "Yesterday morning Sasha Stone and I recorded a special post-Toronto, where-is-the-Oscar-race-now? Oscar Poker with Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil. Apologies to Tom for our dominating the conversation in the early stages, but we got into everything and particularly 'The Silver Linings Playbook,' what do 'real' critics like Manohla Dargis know that we don't? and beware-of-'Lincoln.'"

Katie Finneran eyes her third Tony Award in the upcoming "Annie" revival: "The theater season is barely under way and already award buzz is swirling around comic actress Katie Finneran, who will take on the deliciously nasty role of Miss Hannigan in the Broadway revival of Annie. Dorothy Loudon, the show's original star, picked up a Tony for playing the villainess, and with two trophies already to her name, Finneran is an obvious Tony contender. Broadway.com recently caught up with Finneran to see if awards glory is on her mind as she preps for the production's October 3 start date." BORADWAY.COM
