-Is this the beginning of a good precursor season for The Hurt Locker?


  1. I think this doesn't mean too much, but it's a sign that the film will have legs...

  2. certainly is a good sign for the hurt locker...

  3. good sign indeed. not sure it'll dominate (doubtful). but people are still thinking about it, and that's important.

  4. yes robert siegel and hurt locker! these results make me happy

  5. I think Hurt Locker is pretty much locked as a nomination (especially now with the 10 nominations) but I think it's doubtful that it will win best picture or even anything else.
    maybe original screenplay

  6. It's too early to know what will win anything, but nomination wise, it looks pretty safe...
