    That happens today (don’t know at what point, tho?  Morning? Afternoon?)  NBR loves them Spielberg and Eastwood, so look for War Horse and J. Edgar to pop up here.  Moneyball?  That would be sweet.  The Artist?  Again?  Will Bridesmaids score a top 10?

    Post away when the decision comes down….

    I wouldn’t doubt it one bit that they would put J.Edgar in their top 10 list. Probably give it Director or Screenplay as well.

    As we await their announcements, some context –

    Whatever their credibility as a group (somewhat dubious at best, although they have added credibility somewhat on membership standards in recent years), they still exist for the purpose of gaining media attention and dinner table sales at the awards, and for keeping its voters on screening and screener lists. As part of that, having credibility as a “precursor” (more important to them than for the NY, LA or NS) is part of their goal.

    With that in mind, over the past 5 years (recent history being the most important), they have paralleled the Oscar best picture twice, director and four acting positions only once each per category – in other words, not particularly important, particularly since in each case they chose the winner, other than Slumbog for film, the winners was the broad winner elsewhere at the same time.

    I am so out of the loop lately that I did not know this was happening today. I was just about to predict a sweep for “The Artist”. The wins for the “Help” ladies is a surprise to me though as that has been more of an audience favorite than a big critical hit.

    Where did you find that winner list? Because it’s not on the NBR website, Deadline, Variety, THR, etc etc.

    If they are your predictions you should include that so you don’t confuse anyone.

    You’re right – we need at least confirmation that these aren’t guesses

    One indication that they are guesses – there are words mispelled, which wouldn’t happen in a press release straight from the group
