An awkward moment in the Academy's waiting room.
Anywayyyy, Check out the Best Picture Chart which gets a shake-up in both order, text, and predictions: Two new films enter the top ten and two timid "eligibility" releases exit. Just a hunch but I don't think this is a year for timid qualifying releases given how much of the conversation the top six films have already hogged. They're not budging. Who will be bold enough to challenge them?
Best Director is also revised. More Oscar updates over the weekend and a new episode of "Best Pictures From the Outside In." No fooling. We're finished.
