No Country Picks Up Steam

No Country for Old Men, after pulling in the best picture nod from the Broadcast Film Critics Assocation for Best Picture (and several nods from local critics groups) looks to now be the front-runner going into Oscar night.  No Country took home the Ensamble Award for Cast at the SAGs just days after grabbing the Director’s Guild Award. 

Both Michael Clayton and Juno seem to be lossing steam (and my favorite film of the year – Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street didn’t get a nomination despite pulling in the Golden Globe for Best Picture Musical or Comedy).  It seems the only question will be if the least of the nominees (Atonement) given its recent win at the Golden Globes, or the dark horse There Will Be Blood, which aside from the performance of its lead has been largerly ignored, can turn this back into a race.
