It probably will, it's an Academy favorite. W&G have won Best animated short 3 times and also won Best animated feature in '06. Although that could work against it, if the Academy is looking to honor "new" talent.

I believe Up in the Air will win Best Picture. Having predicted this, I believe Bigalow will win for Best Director. I'm hoping Avatar just wins most of the special effects awards.

From what I've heard, Up In The Air is pretty much out of the race. It's between Avatar and The Hurt Locker, with Inglourious Basterds as the dark horse. Basterds is what I'm rooting for. Won't happen though, Hurt Locker has it pretty much locked up, and I mean locked up as in what will win, not what should win.

IB could/should get Best Original Screenplay as a consolation. It should be Best Pic, but yea, it's the darkhorse there.

Part of me thinks its The Hurt Locker for Picture and Director, but I can also see Cameron winning for director. What to do, what to do.

hardest categories for me to pick were Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Editing, and the length of the telecast.

and i'm really tempted to go with Avatar for BP.

i'd say cameron's pretty much a lock for director; every movie that's in pre-production right now is in 3-D because of what he created with Avatar. regardless of my feelings of the movie, the guy worked his ass off for 10 years to create it. i think he'll win it.

I definitely understand the logic for him winning, but I feel like I've seen Bigelow listed as the frontrunner in a ton of write ups. We shall see.

so do i, and i think he deserves it. take away the problems with the story and dialogue and it's an incredibly well directed flick.

Plus, they'll no doubt feel obligated to give Avatar a major award. Yea, I should change my pick to Cameron.

Bigelow won the Director's Guild award. Since 1948 when the DGA's started, the Oscar winner has only differed from the DGA winner six times. I'd say she's the odds on favorite.

I just watched Shutter Island. I liked it. I saw some of the ending coming but not the whole thing. I've seen a lot of bad reviews out there but I had a good good time.
