What is Harvey going to do? Chase those little gold men

Posted in awards season, movies by Diane on December 3, 2009

When I was reporting this Variety story, everyone wondered about Harvey: Will he revert to form this awards season? Can he still pull it off? Can he afford to?

One thing the Weinstein Co. does have is four hopefuls — “Nine,” “The Road,” “Inglourious Basterds” and “Simple Man.” And if anyone will go for it this constrained awards season, Bob Berney predicted, it will be Harvey Weinstein.

Weinstein execs, meanwhile, compare the company’s prospects — and Harvey’s focus on it  — to the Miramax days. We’ll see what happens when push comes to shove.
