Daily Buzz: Financial Times' Nigel Andrews grumbles that the awards jurors -- including Sundance mainstay Parker Posey, returning to the scene of past glories -- must have been on another planet, since they picked films like 'Winter's Bone' that had little audience buzz. This is a fancy way of saying that the Jury Prizes and Audience Prizes went to different movies, which happens, oh, every single year. Movieline also begs to differ, slightly, with the jurors, offering its own funny list of awards, the "Sundancies." (Link contains some NSFW language.)
News: The Hollywood Reporter notes that about 10 features were sold during this year's festival, with a few more sales imminent. Despite grumbling earlier in the week that sales were slow, that figure puts this year's Sundance on a par with previous years, prompting a "sense of relief" among industry observers.
Because Every Day at Sundance 2010 Is Kristen Stewart Day: In one last bit of K-Stew news, Deadline Hollywood observes that some adult Twihards have obtained the e-mail addresses of several potential buyers of her stripper drama 'Welcome to the Rileys,' urging them to get on the stick and make a deal to put the movie in theaters. This item -- and the last bits of celebrity news from the festival -- comes courtesy of Cinematical's daily digest, "Sundance in 60 Seconds."
Interviews: Cinematical has a video interview with Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine, stars of horror spoof 'Tucker & Dale vs. Evil.' IndieWIRE's Eugene Hernandez has one-minute video interviews with Saturday night's top prize-winners, 'Winter's Bone' writer/director Debra Granik and 'Restrepo' co-director Sebastian Junger. And here at Inside Movies, we have a profile of Canada's Tatiana Maslany, Saturday's Breakout Performance Award winner for her work in 'Grown Up Movie Star.'
Reviews: IndieWIRE has a guide with critics' grades of all the Sundance films. Cinematical has a mixed review of the documentary 'The Shock Doctrine,' based on Naomi Klein's bestselling economic and political critique. And the Hollywood Reporter has the only positive review we've seen of Sundance laughingstock 'Twelve,' suggesting that the drama about spoiled, privileged teens is slick, trashy fun.
Video: Hard to imagine 'Frasier''s Niles Crane busting out his hip-hop moves, but here's Sundance Awards host David Hyde Pierce doing just that in his opening number, which rewrites the lyrics to Black Eyed Peas' 'Boom Boom Pow' so that they're now crammed with references to Sundance movie titles. MC Hyde Pierce gets an assist from back-up dancer/Sundance festival chief John Cooper. (Video contains some NSFW language.)
Here are several clips from top prize-winning drama 'Winter's Bone,' the tale of an Ozark teen trying to keep her family together in hard times.
