Oscar Watch turns its attention to The Help and why it deserves consideration for all its nominations to turn into awards. The Help is nominated for Best Picture, two Best Supporting Actress nods and a nomination for Viola Davis for Best Actress.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close shocked everyone by picking up several Academy Award nominations, especially for Best Picture. Nominee Max von Sydow deserved his Best Supporting nod and look for the film to be a sleeper victor for Best Picture... it could happen!
Looking at the Oscar nominees, it is possible that we may have a different movie win every major category. Look for The Help, Beginners, The Descendants, Hugo, The Artist and The Iron Lady to all share Oscar gold.
How do the Golden Globe victories affect the race for Oscar gold? From Martin Scorsese's Golden Globe win to George Clooney's victory for Best Actor, we wonder: Does a Golden Globe guarantee an Oscar win, much less an Academy Award nomination?
