For those who joined that early bird Actress Psychic Oscar Contest --updated point totals here... October was very quiet for this category aside from Ellen Page's growing buzz (no points unless we figure out a way to quantify "buzz") and Blanchett's Elizabeth stumble --she still might get nominated though. TFE reader Victor S retakes the lead with two Bens (JT & W) and Vincent S coming on strong
points since last update
+2 Opened in theaters and passed $6 million mark: Blanchett (Elizabeth the Golden Age), Witherspoon (Rendition)
+1 films opened Berry (Things We Lost...), Harden (Rails and Ties)
+1 In the Valley of Elah finally crossed that $6 million mark for Susan Sarandon and Charlize Theron --can you believe how much that film flopped?
+ 1 Cate Blanchett (for I'm Not There only) made the cover of the NY Times Style Magazine ...as Bob Dylan
+1 Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose) also played NY covergirl
