MONUMENTS MEN OUT OF OSCAR RACE

The release date for the historical drama has been postponed until early 2014, making it ineligible for next year’s Academy Awards.

Originally scheduled for release in US theaters on December 18, “The Monuments Men” will now make its debut in early 2014, George Clooney told the Los Angeles Times. Clooney, who is the director, producer and star of the feature, indicated that more time was needed to perfect the film’s special effects.

“The Monuments Men” ticked off virtually every box on the list of criteria that make films Oscar-worthy. Its prestigious cast — including Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Bill Murray and French actor Jean Dujardin — was bound to appeal to the Academy, as was its screenplay based on a little-known chapter in history. The film follows a group of special investigators responsible for recovering works of art confiscated by the Nazis during World War II. (Source: relaxnews)
