What is everyone's thoughts this year? It doesn't seem like the usual crop of artsy Oscar movies are coming out this year, in fact, the only really "Traditional" Oscar bait I can see so far is The Bucket List (and god knows the Academy loves Jack and Morgan and Rob Reiner could be this year's contender for a "make up Oscar"). So could we see some suprise wins? I think Johnny Depp has a real chance for Sweeney Todd, same with Burton. I also think another suprise we could see is the comedy genre finally getting some play. If there are a total lack of other choices, both Walk Hard and Super Bad (one of which was a critical darling, the other is shaping up to be) could get some play. If nothing else, Judd Apatow could win a screen writing award. Of course, Charlie Wilson's War seems to be stirring up some acclaim in the bio-pic department and I really wouldn't put it past the Academy to finally give Tom Hanks the hat trick. Should be an interesting year to watch.
