    The Envelope/Gold Derby simply refuse to load in my browsers anymore. Could someone copy and paste just the list (if he wrote one, otherwise…) for me?

    I wonder if it’s only me with this problem….

    Well, thank you, Kris!

    Hm, looks pretty good overall, except for “The Road” being in the frontrunner column, which I don’t get. I’d call it a longshot myself, but the middle would do just fine.

    I also would add “(500) Days of Summer” to the long shot possibilities–only because of the Fox Searchlight track record as of late.

    Kris, Why has precious got the name of the book and author in it’s title?

    Also, good piece on James Cameron in last week’s newyorker.

    Just listened to Paul Schneider’s interview. He is so articulate and honest. I really hope he goes far.

    Stephen: I have no idea, to be honest.

    Loved that Cameron profile, just never found the time to link it.
