Predictions - December 22nd 2009

It's been a huge week for precursors. Most critics groups have weighed in, as well as nominations for the Globes, BFCA, and SAG. This has helped to clear up several races, while others are still maddeningly open. The biggest changes to my predictions include:

-Bright Star, The Lovely Bones, and The Last Station exit Best Picture in favour of Inglourious Basterds (whose success mystifies me), Avatar, and A Single Man (the one out-on-a-limb prediction).
-Quentin Tarantino and James Cameron replace Lee Daniels and Rob Marshall in Director.
-Jeremy Renner, Sandra Bullock, Woody Harrleson, Julianne Moore, and Vera Farmiga all join the acting races.
-A Single Man, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Inglourious Basterds join the writing races.
-Lots of additions/subtractions to the craft categories. Bottom line is Avatar and Nine have the biggest presence.
-Live Action Short predictions have been added.
