Entertainment Weekly decides to feature Up in the Air on the cover of its first real "Oscar" issue...

...does it mean anything? I don't think so, but you never know. It certainly doesn't hurt visibility for the film, and it shows that it's an "Oscar" film, at least to EW.
-Do you think it means anything?


  1. Nope.

    It's clearly a Clooney-thing.

    I like EW, but they pander on covers to their writers' faves and to faces that sell magazines. You only need to see the scroll on top.

    I don't see Mulligan, Renner, Bigelow, Daniels, or a few other talents up there.

    Believe me, if they could find a way...Pitt would be on there.

    Kendrick looks nicer than ever though.

  2. Oh wait! Pitt is on there...

    Notice my subtle sarcasm.

  3. I feel like the odd one out here but I must confess. I do believe George Clooney is a very talented actor, perhaps even brilliantly so, but he just doesn't do much for me. I can't say I've ever had that "I've got to see that" feeling about anything he's been in, except perhaps for The Good German, which for me was all about Cate Blanchett, not him.

    If there is a point to this message, please feel free to point it out to me! ;-)
