    Bourne 5

    Bourne 5 shooting has apparently wrapped in London, so I'm not sure where they go next. Berlin for a few days?

    If you want another side of Paul Greengrass, here's the instagram of his daughter Katie (stylist and costume designer). No new pics of Matt:

    Variety

    A Variety run-down of Best Actor candidates. It's a shame Matt won't be in the Best Actor roundtable because he's out of the country (but might be back this week prior to Thanksgiving).

    http://variety.com/gallery/best-actor-oscar-contenders-2/#!6/matt-damon/

    It’s the undisputed hit of the season and Damon is largely a one-man show for most of it. He’s also beloved by the industry; filming the latest “Bourne” has kept him off the circuit but love for him and “The Martian” could make him a player.

    Premiere

    Another video of the premiere, including Matt and Sebastian Stan having fun and Matt answering the question Rose noted above. Matt also says he does not care at all about awards (via tumblr). (The video might have been linked before but I couldn't access it.)

    Updates

    A photo from London of the Bourne 5 wrap party is on Instagram with probably more to come.

    It ended up being more of the Sebastian Stan press tour than a Matt tour in Beijing. So many more pics of Seb than Matt (Seb at karaoke, Seb at dinner, Seb leaving the airport, Seb doing live weibo chats etc). Seb getting the attention at press events (one watcher called Matt 'playful' and Seb 'charismatic'). If Seb brings in the fans, that's good for the movie. He certainly is an engaging character having fun.

    Re: Updates

    Stan is very popular because of Marvel. I think a lot of people are in awe because he is considered as one of the biggest star in Hollywood. But Matt is so nice and down-to-earth and I believe he gained a lot of fans this trip.

    Several reports by the fans mentioned how sweet he was and he took time to chat with them. One time he comment to a mom how beautiful her baby is. The other time he talked to a couple and said they were so sweet holding hands together but it makes him missing his wife. He was just so nice to all the fans.

    Matt on Ellen

    I'm glad Matt's getting all this good publicity, but I really get a charge every weekday watching Matt do a few seconds of his little dance in Ellen's opening titles. She's had him there for several weeks: he looks great and in his best playful mood.

    RE: Matt on Ellen

    That's cool about Ellen's opening credits :). Nice pics in Berlin. Interesting that Seb is so popular in Asia. Hardly known in the states.

    RE: The Martian

    We're heading into the final stretch for awards season and The Martian is still definitely one of the front runners for an Oscar nom, although Matt is "on the bubble" according to most prognosticators. I feel this is Matt's best chance so far (maybe ever?) to win an Oscar for best actor. But he's not available to campaign even if he wanted to (which he probably doesn't). Do you think he'll do anything outside of that one SAG screening to put himself out there?
