And the Award for Best Picture Movie Mistake Goes to…

Our pal Jon Sandys, the UK-based webmaster of moviemistakes.com, was kind enough to send us a taste of some of the glorious gaffes gracing this Sunday’s Oscar-nominated films. Django Unchained is the current Best Picture leader with 26 mistakes spotted by website readers while The Avengers ranks as the most mistake-ridden nominee of all with 34 bloopers.

“Mistakes don’t stop them being great films or audiences loving them,” says Sandys, who notes that 1998 Best Picture winner Titanic survived a 260+ tally. “Mistakes are just fun things to notice.” Here are a few of FishbowlLA’s favorite Best Picture slips:

Argo: Ben Affleck is supposedly in 1980 but is shown wearing a Rolex Deepsea Sea Dweller (pictured), which wasn’t released until 2008.

Les Misérables: When Marius (Eddie Redmayne) and Cosette (Amanda Seyfried) are singing in the shot where Marius is brought home and just before the wedding scene, you can see an earpiece in Cosette‘s ear.

Pete Hamill story, ‘Yellow Handkerchief,’ Premieres In Hollywood With Stars Hovering

yellowhanderchief.jpgAn indie film that got plenty of attention in Sundance last year, “The Yellow Handkerchief,” had a Beverly Hills premiere at the WGA Theater last night with stars William Hurt, Maria Bello and producer Arthur Cohn in tow.

The film, a beautiful tone poemy love story etched by director Udayan Prasad, was a pleasant diversion from the normal shoot-em-ups in Hollywood, as producer Cohn lamented in his introduction.

He was right.

It doesn’t start off as anything but dreary. But Prasad’s slow-paced styling pays off with stellar performances from Hurt, Bello, Kristin Stewart (who is hot right now because of the phenomenal box office turn with her film “Twilight”) and newcomer Eddie Redmayne.

The unsung irony that, though based in Louisiana backwoods swamps, the story of three lonely drifters coming together comes from hard-core New York journalist Pete Hamill of all people.

Hamill didn’t attend the premiere, but we all were wondering what could possibly have inspired this piece.

Hurt dashed in and out quickly, but not before he could say hello. Ten months ago, Hurt made a surprise appearance at a screening of my film, “Running with Arnold.”

Sid Ganis, chairman of the Academy, was also in the audience.

Though it doesn’t have a domestic release date yet, producer Cohn said the piece should be opening in Japan in April.
