Awards Roundup: Judi Dench, Politicians Campaign for Harvey Weinstein

The flow of “news stories” revolving around awards season is already starting to turn into a flood.

Harvey Weinstein geared up for a familiar ratings fight, appearing on “CBS This Morning” to announce that he and “Philomena” star Judi Dench are “in a battle” with the MPAA, since the drama was rated R, unjustly in many observers’ opinions, for using the F-word twice. Mr. W. gave the morning show the first look at a brief video with Dench as her M character from the James Bond series — with the M helping spell out the word “Philomena.” The 23-second spot is a teaser for an upcoming Funny or Die video.

So James Bond has entered the awards campaigning, as have politicians. As for TWC’s “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” the White House is screening the film tonight, with Nelson Mandela’s daughters in attendance.

Meanwhile, the Bushes hosted a screening of Fox 2000’s “The Book Thief” in Houston. Attendees included George H.W. and Barbara Bush, former Houston mayor Bill White, plus a church group that meets to do needlepoint every week and, according to the press release, “Juan (the beloved janitor in the Bush building) and his daughter.”
