Smith wants Oscar?

05.14.2009

Kevin Smith Academy Award Winner Kevin Smith - how does that sound to you? Cause it sounds pretty damn good to Smith at the moment. He recently told MTV that he's currently prepping a drama that may just land him one or two of them award things that people like Steven Spielberg and Clint Eastwood keep winning. So what's this movie that'll have Smith step up to the plate to prove his directing chops? It's a collaboration with author Mitch Albom adapting the song "Hit Somebody (The Hockey Song)" Albom co-wrote with rocker Warren Zevon. At this point you may be saying to yourself, "what the fuck?" But here's what Smith had to say on how this came together: "The song’s been one of my favorites since I heard it and I’ve always seen this whole movie behind. I got in touch with Mitch because Warren Zevon has passed on and we started talking about it and he was into it and into what I was kind of pitching.” Find out what the song's about and what else Smith had to say about it over HERE.

Chasing Amy

Chasing Amy should have won best script, let alone be nominated.

All of it

Everything Smith's done has turned me off -all of it-like Lou Reed once sang-"all of it-not jus' some of it-all of it".

Wow

You guys are douches. The guy didn't say he's doing it for awards, he said the equivalent of "If anything I made was ever going to win an award this would be it".

Also wtf is with people hating Hockey so much? It's soccer on ice, but better. It's also way more entertaining than boring ass football.

Kevin, I love you, man. But if you're making a movie just because you think it will win you an Oscar, then you're making it for the wrong reason.

Good one, Joblo! You almost had me! The only way he gets an Oscar is if "oscar" is code for hamburger.

I really can't picture him winning an award, though the speech would be sure to be one of the more unique I bet.

The story he came up with for Batman Cacophony was one of the better reads for Batman, of late. Definitely has the usual Smith flare.

I love Kevin Smith but why not focus on one of the several, more exciting films he has spent years talking about? Red State? Ranger Danger? His movie with Bruce Willis that was announced?

Huh. You learn something new everyday.

Fricken Hockey

Kev, I love your Smodcast, but when you start talking hockey it's time to turn off or I'll fall asleep at the wheel.

Sorry, I aint gonna go see no fricken Kevin Smith Hockey movie.

I'd see it. But I don't believe it'll be a contender.

If something like pal Affleck's Gone Baby Gone only gets a supporting actress nod at the Oscars, and that film was very good, nicely done, well directed and written, then Smith is a super dark horse.

Or, has Smith kissed enough ass to get something noticed by the Academy?

We'll see.
