The Hurt Locker is going to have a lot of traction going into the Oscars. Which is very cool. And I have no idea who the New York Online critics are, but they gave Best Pic and Best Director awards to Avatar and Bigelow respectively. Which is kind of funny.

And there's also the notable group from last week, always first out of the gate, and always with questionable ethics behind their voting:

EDIT: See LMP's post below.

Yeah, I'm sure if Cameron loses to Bigelow at any of the televised events he will be cheering louder than anyone. It's nice to see his continuing support.

Also good news are the two screenplay wins for the Coens. I've no doubt they'll be nominated, and I'd really like to see them win again. Of course, I've seen very few of these films so far to compare. A Serious Man, Up, Inglourious Basterds, and District 9 is all I've got under my belt. And I don't plan on ever seeing Precious or Invictus.

Yes, I think the screenplay award of basically between the Coens and Tarantino right now,with probably a stronger support behind the former, which is perfectly fine by me.

That's fine. I recognized the list, and just couldn't place what group it was from. I guess that's because it's the National Board of Review. I'll gladly forget.

Same here.

Would you both like to throw some Best Picture predictions right now as well?

I'm fucking worthless when it comes to BP predictions. I've actually been waiting for the Oscar blogs, and likewise Laz's own compiled predictions so that I could actually offer something worthwhile to my own friends.

Incontention's list is very reliable. I've been discussing it back-and-forth with a buddy of mine and here's what we've kind of agreed upon:

Avatar (Dir. James Cameron)
An Education (Dir. Lone Scherfig)
The Hurt Locker (Dir. Kathryn Bigelow)
Inglourious Basterds (Dir. Quentin Tarantino)
Invictus (Dir. Clint Eastwood)
Nine (Dir. Rob Marshall)
Precious (Dir. Lee Daniels)
A Serious Man (Dir. Joel and Ethan Coen)
Up (Dir. Peter Docter & Bob Peterson)
Up in the Air (Dir. Jason Reitman)

Avatar's mostly contingent on the box office at this point, and I could see Crazy Heart, The Lovely Bones, or A Single Man popping in that spot as well.

I'm still not convinced about Up being allowed out of the animation ghetto. And I'm not sure it should be.

A Single Man isn't going to contend aside from Firth and the art direction.

I'd say it's probably between Up in the Air and The Hurt Locker, and if the former starts doing well at the box office, that could be the difference. My money is on Bigelow for Director either way. Too historical of an opportunity to pass up.
