    That’d be awesome. A trailer wouldnt hurt either.

    Now, about how The Social Network might be received, I assume by going either way I assume you mean that is the difference between a token nominee or a serious contender to win. With the reviews it has I find it hard to see the academy not giving the film at least one of the last few BP slots and a screenplay nom.

    Also, I always figured The Way Back would get a small run this year after its response from the first couple of screenings, though actually I would perhaps slightly prefer it if they wait till next year. I always find the end of the year so crowded with films and it feels like I have to pass on a couple films I’m interested in, and this way it would be something to look forward to in the fairly quiet first months of the year.

    Well nothing’s assured yet so maybe it’ll just hold on to the January release slot. But last I heard, things are looking up for a run. We’ll see.

    Possible one-week qualifying run? Yes! I keep thinking/hoping that if released, Harris would get a supp. nom and possible win.

    At least there’s still a possibility….i initially lost all hope once telluride came and went with no announcement.
