    So anyone think In the Loop even has a chance of being on the list of 10 (or even a list of 15)?

    I thought it was a great movie, but not sure if the Academy would agree?

    Cieply: “[Benjamin Button] never quite found its footing in the awards quest and accompanying box office derby.”

    $127 million domestic gross and 13 Oscar nominations translate into “not finding footing” … how, exactly? If he was desperate for a justification for the “Shutter Island” delay, he could have at least discussed “Up in the Air” instead.
