    If public enemies is such a big contender why is its release date so early next year?

    Kid, it’s a big budget gangster movie starring Jack Sparrow and Batman, you want a roll-out in late October? I wouldn’t really say its release effects its Oscar chances one way or the other. One caveat: I think COLLATERAL might have gotten a lot more noms if it hadn’t been dumped in August.
