    1. My big ones this year are Gravity for best film, Bullock for Actress, and Hanks for Actor. I haven't seen 12 Years A Slave yet, so Chiwetel's performance in that might sneak in.

  1. Ah, the Golden Globes, typically a strong key indicator for the Oscar favourites. You still think Tom Hanks is the shoe-in for the Best Actor Oscar after this? Reread the nominees, and perhaps you'll see who he's lost it to…

    Just remember, everybody loves a hero…

    1. I"m still putting money on Hanks, although the race is really close this year. The only real competition he has is Chiwetel Ejiofor, whose work in 12 Years A Slave is what you'd term "a breakout". The rest of the guys here I think (and I feel bad for saying this) are just making up the numbers. And if Robert Redford gets an Oscar nom out of All Is Lost, it'll be a career Oscar much like Sandra Bullock's was for The Blind Side.

      And, if I was a betting man, I'd be having a small wager on Barkhad Abdi for his role in Captain Phillips. My review for that film comes up in February, and I remember writing that I think Abdi actual out-acts Hanks in many respects.
