IF THE OSCARS WERE HELD TODAY


Now that all of the major film festivals are over, we now have a sense of how the Academy Awards might go this year. This is an unusual year in that many of the contenders have not been seen yet. Until the Oscar bloggers and critics have a chance to see these movies and ferociously tweet out their Oscar thoughts, It is hard to say how things will turn out. We are still waiting on LES MISERABLES, DJANO UNCHAINED, FLIGHT, ZERO DARK THIRTY, THE PROMISED LAND and THE HOBBIT.

If the Oscars were held today this is how some of the major categories might look:
