    Something like every other or every third Woody Allen picture is a good one, right? He’s due for a winner and this definitely gives off Midnight in Paris vibes.

    Should have an easy time getting the Original Screenplay nomination. In a field of 9 or 10, if it delivers box office-wise (big stars should help), it could even get in for BP.

    I hope that by doing period Woody Allen will finally give us a motion picture that will land in top half of his filmography and maybe earn him 17th writing nod. He did wonders with classics “The Purple Rose of Cairo” and “Bullets Over Broadway” and slightly overrated “Midnight in Paris” still had its charms (especially performances given by Marion Cotillard and Corey Stoll, the latter of them returns here). Acting nomination here and there would be nice, although I don’t expect him to ever write as phenomenal role as Jasmine was for Cate Blanchett (the film itself wasn’t half as good, though).

    RE: casting changes in Allen’s films

    Bruce Willis is actually underrated as comedian (“Death Becomes Her”, anyone?) but Steve Carell fits Woody Allen’s style more.

    I’m very curious to see Michael Keaton’s footage on “The Purple…”. Jeff Daniels did phenomenal job, though, and should have been nominated for Oscar. It might be his best role(s).

    Ingrid Bergman preferred to do real Ingmar Bergman movie instead of the one only influenced by him. Surely it was for the best – both Bergman in “Autumn Sonata” and Geraldine Page in “Interiors” act circles around Best Actress winner, Jane Fonda in “Coming Home” and Ingrid Bergman, working with her almost namesake for the first and only time, found a perfect final role to end her rich filmography. Speaking of Fonda, I can’t imagine anyone doing better work than Judy Davis in “Husbands and Wives”. Her signature role. If it wouldn’t be for behind the scenes scandal, she would have won this Oscar.

    Jodie Foster in “Manhattan” would be interesting to see. No question she would make Tracy tougher and more self-centered while Muriel Hemingway wins by making her character emphatic and fragile behind the facade of wiser beyond her years. Still, relationship between Isaac and Tracy irks me but otherwise it’s a classic. Re: “Shadows and Fog” – what a waste of two recent Best Actress winners, Jodie and Kathy Bates.

    I don’t think much of Samantha Morton in “S&L”. She was perfectly charming but not worthy of Oscar nomination in super-strong 1999! Still, she captured aura of silent movie star, something that Rosie O’Donnell, I’m afraid, wouldn’t be able to do.

    So, all in all, it ended up very well for those productions.

    Great interview, thank you. I really thought he would be a Bernie supporter.

    Hmm sounds to me like Globe noms for the film, Eisenberg and Stewart and perhaps not much beyond that. Depending on the strength of the category (and the loudness of the anti-Allen forces during the Oscar season), perhaps Allen can return to Original Screenplay.

    Reactions at Cannes for Woody’s films are not to be trusted. They were likely to be underwhelmed anyway.

    I’ve heard that Stewart is Supporting in this- do you reckon she’ll be campaigned in Supporting Actress, but be put in Lead for the Golden Globes (a la Christian Bale, Christoph Waltz, and Catherine Zeta-Jones)? Or are they better off just campaigning her as lead as Globes are her only real chance (at this stage) of a precursor nod?
