With Venice and Toronto distant memories, tongues have been wagging non-stop on the subject of Oscar season hopefuls. There are the obvious choices - 'The King's Speech', 'The Social Network', '127 Hours' - and then there's... 'Alice in Wonderland'.

Deadline reports that Walt Disney are seriously campaigning for their billion-dollar grosser, and are tempting Oscar voters with special screenings of the film, in 3D, in select theatres. The film will run at the Arclight Hollywood and AMC Santa Monica from October 18th to the 21st and will be accompanied by an exhibition of Coleen Atwood's costumes for the flick ... because they don't want to make it too obvious as to which awards they're campaigning for.

Of course, that's where the nominations are likely to go for the film, if they're to go anywhere. Regardless of how 'Alice in Wonderland' turned out as a whole, there's no doubting its technical achievement is pretty impressive. As well as Atwood's costumes, it's in with a shot in both make-up and visual effects categories.
