In 2002, Moore was considered a heavy favorite to win the Oscar for her excellent lead work as Cathy Whitaker in Todd Haynes’ Far from Heaven or her equally powerful supporting in Stephen Daldry’s The Hours as Laura Brown. Joining a list that includes Emma Thompson and Sigourney Weaver, she went home empty-handed that fateful night.

Deja-vu: watch out for her upcoming two-category sweep in 2010: First up is a much-discussed lead turn in Atom Egoyan’s Chloe, a sexually-charged drama in which Moore’s tony doctor hires an escort (Amanda Seyfried) to bed her husband. Remember that nobody does “sexually-charged” quite like Moore. This is the woman who gave us Boogie Nights’ Amber Waves and the tawdry, delicious Savage Grace last year, after all.

Then comes the pièce de résistance for the awards season: Moore’s supporting turn in designer-turned-film director Tom Ford’s A Single Man, opposite Colin Firth as a gay man who has just lost his long-time lover.

It seems inevitable that if you haven’t heard of the Scottish band Glasvegas, you probably will soon. Their self-titled debut album was released in January of this year, and had been nominated for the Mercury Prize for best album of 2009, though it lost to Speech DeBelle’s Speech Therapy. Tack on live performances on Carson Daly and Craig Ferguson, playing a set at Lollapalooza and it’s no wonder they found themselves touring with U2 only a handful of months later. To finish up the year, Glasvegas is currently touring with Kings of Leon throughout Canada and some parts of the U.S (dates after the jump).

Yesterday, the band released their second U.S. single, “It’s My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry”. The single, which Bono declares is “one of the best songs [he’s] ever heard”, comes paired with a video which features a more intimate look into the mind of lead singer James Allan as he contemplates his inner quarrels with love:

"How does one establish an entry point into a complex mythos developed through the plots of more than a half dozen very popular video games in only about 20 pages? Not very well.
