Peter Hammond of Deadline.com poses the question, “Should there be 10 slots for the acting categories?” In all fairness to Mr. Hammond, who is quite astute in his assessment of the field, he does acknowledge that readers will come after him for his opinion.

A New Year, a new box office report. Hobbit: Five Armies holds the Box Office crown for a third weekend, meaning that all six of the Middle Earth films held the one ring for at least three weekends. Hobbit 3 brought in $21.9M in the first weekend of the New Year and is approaching the magic $750M globally. We assume that now Peter Jackson and team are wondering if they can go There and Back Again…and back another time.
