I wouldn't be surprised if most of these became true. These are dead-on.

BTW, I've nominated your blog for an award on mine, be sure to check it out and pass along the love!

@ MovieNut14: Wow, thank you so much! I'll be sure to pass it along.

I am not ready to buy the dropping off of Nine. Yes, it got bad reviews and did not make any money, but that didn't stop The Reader last year. Of course, it is also a musical, which is always fun to some people.

Beyond that, though, you are pretty spot on.

@ James D.: The last few spots in the Best Picture race are still wide open. I wouldn't be surprised if Nine got in. It has Harvey Weinstein pushing it, just like The Reader did.
