Revelers keep ‘Score’

Oscar noms gives premiere something to yak about

Tuesday morning’s Academy Award nominations gave “The Perfect Score” preemgoers ample ammo to rate performance by studio later that evening.

Many buzzed about “Cold Mountain’s” shutout from best pic category, with one rhetorically quizzing: “How glad am I that I don’t work at Miramax?”

Others called the foreign language selections “a complete curve ball,” and opined that “Finding Nemo” could have gotten a best pic nod without the animation category; “American Splendor” was slighted, revelers said, but “should clean up at the Spirit awards.”

As for opening a film on Super Bowl weekend, Par’s COO Rob Friedman said the key is “to have a big Friday and Saturday — and have a movie that appeals to young girls on Sunday.”

Topper Sherry Lansing added: “And you’re counting on a film that has good playability so you’re not relying on just one weekend.”

Among those on hand for the Cinerama Dome preem and after-party were Par’s Jonathan Dolgen and Donald De Line; MTV’s Van Toffler and David Gale; and director Brian Robbins; plus guests including David Dinerstein.
