Oscar Watch — Entertainment Weekly

In the latest issue EW lists their front-runners for the Best Picture nom in order of likelihood:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Slumdog Millionaire
Frost/Nixon
Revolutionary Road
Doubt
Milk
The Dark Knight
Australia

We'll see how things play out. Interestingly, "Slumdog" made no. 2 before its Mumbai locale became the top news story of the week.

Of the eight, I've only seen, um, one: "The Dark Knight." Hoping to see "Milk" and "Slumdog" this weekend. Racked my brain for other, deserving movies that should get nom'ed and came up with zilch.

How is it that you've seen the same pathetic number of Oscar-potentials as I have?! :-)

I just got back from MILK so I'm now at two. Great movie. Great performance by Sean Penn.

I just saw "Slumdog" and thought it was great; see it if you haven't.
