The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
No Country for Old Men
There Will Be Blood
The Producer's Guild annouced today, a couple of days too late to really effect the Oscar nominees, but it is interesting to note where the guild's allegiances lie so far. This is the first major guild that Into the Wild has missed out on, although I wouldn't worry much about Sean Penn's film at this point. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly continues to makes waves, having scored with every major guild. And although Juno predictably made the cut here, the Diving Bell may have made it's official entry onto my Best Pic predictions in place of the infinitely more popular teen comedy. I didn't even want to dignify the Golden Globes with a post, but I will say that Julian Schnabel taking home Best Director last night bodes even better than originally thought for his deeply moving labor-of-love. The other three films were foregone conclusions and don't neccesitate any commentary aside from the fact that they have all secured their spots at the Shrine Auditorium.
So that's that. All the guilds have annouced and pretty much everything has been cleared up. Some minor changes should be coming to my final Oscar predictions, which will arrive the day before the AMPAS annoucement.
