Starting tomorrow the guild announcements begin in full force. By the end of this week the Oscar race will clear up considerably. We'll know if there's any life left in that depression era boxer, those catty geisha, the big ape, etc... In other words all of the second tier stuff. No matter the outcome of the ensemble SAG nominations on the 5th (viewed incorrectly as "best picture" --but what can you do?) Walk the Line, Brokeback, and Good Night and Good Luck are looking safe. Everything else could seriously use the boost. My SAG predictions here. I don't claim to know anything. SAG is difficult to predict. Their nominating committee is different every year and their membership is wide and diverse. I'm hoping there's a "Station Agent" size surprise in store. But that's probably asking too much.
