    Their inclusion of Fox and District 9 in the top ten is interesting….so not a total “zzzz”

    It’s not just you. It certainly seems to be headed that way.

    Maybe is too early, but for me also sounds like oscar winners: Up in the Air, Bigelow, Clooney, Streep, Waltz and Mo’Nique. Interesting that picture and director are from different movies. The screenplays for me sounds more for Up in the air ( adapted ) and The Hurt Locker ( original ). I looks like the best picture winner will take just three oscars, like Crash.

    Academy members aren’t critics, so don’t write Clooney’s name in stone yet. Jeff Bridges ain’t no Mickey Rooney!

    Glenn, you got a point, i’m agree with you that Clooney is very vulnerable, and Jeff Bridges is a huge contender. But with the others: Up in the Air, Bigelow, Streep, Waltz and Mo’Nique, Up in the air ( adapted ) and The Hurt Locker (original ), i’m 99% sure.

    Let’s hope Jeff (or Colin) wins the NSFC…although I have to say Clooney was perfect in the role.
