  1. A big boost to The Hurt Locker, no doubt about that...

  2. im a little disapointed, seems like a hurt locker win is fairly certain now, now if quentin can win the dga, now that would make things even more interesting, and give after the bafta, ijust dont want to know yet!

  3. All to have been expected. Definately a boost for Hurt Locker though which it needed to have a solid lead now. Big question is, what will BAFTA do? They've done a good job of getting the quick last minute changes of late. Penelope Cruz, Tilda Swinton, Alan Arkin.

  4. Oh I should add, it's a shame to watch Up In The Air slip out of contention and look likely to walk away only with a Writing Oscar. It deserves better :(

  5. We shall see, but I think Up in the Air has taken the biggest hit the last few weeks...

  6. Such a shame for Up In The Air too for a film that looked so likely to be the first comedy/drama to win since Driving Miss Daisy in 1990. Unless you count Chicago which I don't :)

  7. It's my favorite film of the year. I'd have loved it to have won, but as a prognosticator I can't predict it in good conscious anymore...

  8. It does seem as though Up In The Air has not been pulling in awards like it was expected to. Any particular reason anyone can come up with? As a side bar, things looking good for The Hurt Locker!

  9. I've been racking my brain, and I've yet to figure out exactly why it trailed off as the season went on...

  10. Do you think perhaps that Up in the Air's driving force - the economy we live in - is something that resonates after the movie...but not as much as the Hurt Locker's intensity (Iraq War backdrop) and Avatar's EGO (Cameron, box-office, animation, BUDGET)?

    I hope that made SOME sense...
