If the Guardian's recent slide show "Should be a contender: the 50 big films vying for Oscar's attention" proves true, Focus Features is going to be awfully busy come award season next year. In their slide show, they run through fifty films, of which four come from Focus Features. For Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, the Guardian notes "the big-screen version of John le Carré cold war thriller, was always going to be hotly-anticipated. Just look at that cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Ciaran Hinds, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman, Mark Strong, Simon McBurney, Tom Hardy." For Beginners:, the Guardian highlights that "ts 81-year-old star Christopher Plummer has been having something of a renaissance of late, and could well find himself ushered onto the stage to pick up various best supporting actor gongs." It also showcases Jane Eyre - "Once Hollywood's starlet-du-jour Mia Wasikowska signed up to this adaptation of Charlotte Brontë's novel, it immediately shot into the award-bait category" -- and The Debt.
