The Envelope Returns, Now with Film Series

latlogo11072.gif

The Envelope returns at the LA Times, and it’s all gussied up. As we all know but are reminded by Rob Barrett:

The Envelope has made the Los Angeles Times the frontrunner for unique coverage of the race from the inside.

Right you are, if you think so.

John T. O’Loughlin, the SVP/Marketing, Planning & Development, sends the memo:

Our interactive colleagues have completely redesigned The Envelope’s homepage to bring yet more entertainment industry leaders and avid entertainment enthusiasts to the site–offer better usability, increased news coverage, and upgraded news features, including the new Contender Countdown. In addition to these enhancements, there are also new online editorial voices, including Todd Martens and Pete Hammond. The site is live, so check it out.

You had us at “interactive colleagues”.

On Wednesday, we’ll begin producing The Envelope print series once again. Now in its sophomore year, there are plans for 11 issues this season and this week’s debut issue will be a 40-page Award Season Preview, followed by the Best Actor issue the following week.

New for 2008, we’re extending The Envelope brand a step further by creating an experiential event program called The Envelope Screening Series. We’ve also secured Mercedes-Benz as the series’ presenting sponsor ensuring this new addition to the Envelope family is again capturing alternative and incremental revenue. Starting Wednesday and running through mid-December, this exclusive invite-only event will showcase some of the top films from this year’s awards season and will feature Q&A sessions moderated by editorial staffers from The Times and The Envelope, including John Horn, Pete Hammond, Kenneth Turan, and Patrick Goldstein.

So who’ll be invited to these events? Academy voters? And why Q & As with people who write about the movies, as opposed to those who make them? Call us when Tom O’Neil is on deck.

TV Journos Predict The Emmy Noms. We Predict A New Drinking Game

31216169.jpgIn his own version of Small Medium at Large, Tom O’Neil pits a bunch of H’wood reporters against each other in a predictions game. The Envelope blogger even threw in two anon Emmy voters to make it more interesting.

This would have been easier to read in a different format — maybe a chart? — but if you can follow along, it’s kinda interesting. Plus it makes an excellent format for a drinking game come tomorrow: Take a shot if a Ray Richmond prediction gets nominated. Two if that guy from Orlando chose it.

Sundown on Sunset — The Oscars Edition

It’s a cross between the Westminster Dog Show and your high school prom, but for whatever reason, we all go ga-ga over the Oscars.

Here’s a roundup of this week’s Oscars coverage:

The Envelope put out an Oscars preview issue that included too much Elizabeth Snead… which is to say any at all.

Deadline Hollywood Daily reports that “Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, and George Lucas together will be presenting the Best Director award this too-long telecast.”

People magazine gives us the ghosts of Ugly Oscar Dresses past.
