Correction: ‘The Monuments Men’ still in Oscar play

Gold Derby set off a hubbub today with its report that there are no plans to stage an Oscar campaign for “The Monuments Men” in the above-the-line categories. Sony insists that’s not true. It’s correct to say that none of the rock-star Oscar strategists has been hired to mount a campaign, but a studio exec insists that’s because it’s too early. “The Monuments Men,” which is due out in awards-friendly December, is still in production. Once it’s seen by studio chiefs, they’ll decide how to position it for trophies. Meantime, the source says that the film has the full faith and backing of Sony’s in-house awards office. Gold Derby regrets causing the confusion – and the hubbub.
