Nominations will be announced on 2nd February by Anne Hathaway. Hope for either Haneke be on the Best Director list or White Ribbon to get a Best Picture nomination.

Some more predictions:

Best Freign Language Movie (without the Australian to my surprise)

Oscars to Bigelow for Best Director and Avatar for Best Picture doesn't seem unlikely

Bilbo, I'm not surprised. What I would not like about that scenario, is Hurt Locker not taking a major category win: Renner's chances for Best Actor are slim to none. In the worst case, it could even pull a Shawshank like it did at the Globes and I really don't want that to happen.

Anybody watched that Mugabe documentary? Read it's pretty good.

Best director, that would be based on the movie in the runnings for awards this year. So yes, Bigelow is the front runner. Michael Hanneke would also be deserving.

I'm not sure. But as the Academy is not really known for sharing stuff, even if I don't like it, I guess either Avatar or Hurt Locker will win Picture as well as Director.
What I do know for sure though is: I totally love Jason Reitman's completely pissed face expression everytime his movie loses a category

Directors Guild of America:
Quote:
Kathryn Bigelow tops directors with 'Hurt Locker'
Quote:
Kathryn Bigelow and "The Hurt Locker" became official awards-season front-runners Saturday after Bigelow won the top prize from the Directors Guild of America.

The 58-year-old filmmaker is the first woman to win the guild's top honor, which positions her and the film as shoo-ins for the Academy Awards. The DGA boasts that its winner has gone on to win the directing Oscar all but six times since 1948, and more often than not, the film that wins the directing Oscar goes on to win best picture.

"The Hurt Locker" production budget was $15 million while the box office was just $16 million looks like a flop to me.

btw. why has the Star Trek remake been ignored almost completely so far I thought it was pretty good

and if M.C. gets a nomination for Nine, I will be
she's the only one from this movie's great cast, that did not completely or slightly suck

I would not mind a ST nomination, that movie rocked despite the sad trick used to bring old Spock into the plot.

The Big Lebowski. A cult movie. Budget: $15 million, gross $17 million. A flop? Absolutely not. Artistic merit has nothing to do with commercial success. Most people with an ounce of common sense would know that.
