Minor Oscar Updates in the major categories to reflect very early precursor notices (see previous post) such as Gotham, British Independent, and Hollywood Festival kudos. Plus new poster images for Munich (serious, contemplative teaser) and The New World (romantic epic style). Must. Stop. Now. Next major prediction alteration on November 7th after Jarhead and Chicken Little open.
If the year ended today I think our best pic nominees would be some combo of these six -minus one: Capote, Cinderella Man, Crash, Constant Gardener, Goodnight and Good Luck and A History of Violence. But the year does not end today.
