While Kris Tapley
and I were prepared for today's Academy Award nominations, a few things caught us by surprise. We discuss today's news and forecast where the Oscar race is heading: from Avatar
vs. Hurt Locker
to Bullock, Streep, those Inglourious Basterds
and Up in the Air.
UPDATE: To clarify my comment about The Hurt Locker adding to its gross post-nominations, while Summit released The Hurt Locker on DVD on January 12 (which helped to support their awards effort), they are re-releasing the best picture nominee on over 100 screens this weekend.
