    Always fun to check back in two weeks to see the “sure-fire” nomination that’s passed over while something comes out of left field to get in.

      Unfortunately it will be nearly four weeks, Jan. 25, before the nominations are announced.

    I think Kristen Stewart should get a nomination for Welcome to the Rileys.
    But alas.. Most twilight fans wouldn’t know a good movie if it slapped them in the face.
    Hopefully the Academy will recognize, what most people who went to see the movie did, its an award worthy preformence.

      It is but is not happening. The movie was too small and Kristen hasn`t got any precursor nomination. It`s forgotten. But she`s talented so her time will come.

  • hello …

    the winner of the Academy award is rarely the best actor/actress of the year, it is based on the hype; why is the Oscar hosts are James Franco and Anne Hathaway, are James Franco and Natalie Portman the covers?; and if anyone saw “Fair Game” and saw Naomi Watts’ performance, no other name would be mentioned for best actress, but “Black Swan,” creepy as it is, is getting the buzz

  • to Alex

    Natalie Portman has been intense before; same looks, same face, same intenseness, it was called “V is for Vendetta” same old schtick

    • alex

      Natalie Portman was on a completely different planet during V for Vendetta-I personally found that performance laughable, especially the accent.

  • Coldy

    It`s so deserved! Franco was incredible in `127 hours`.

  • See blue valentine, and then

    you will see why Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams will ultimately receive their well deserved Oscars

  • the only reason

    Portman is on the cover and not Hathaway is that Portman is the latest news out of Hollywood; if in fact they have Portman and Franco on the cover because they are the expected Oscar winners, wouldn’t EW be showing a conflict of interest or an unprofessional preference?

  • bpp

    Who picked that picture of James Franco for the cover? They should be fired.

  • Jennifer

    By the way, it’s shoo-in, not shoe-in.

  • Luke

    Am I the only one sick of all the Natalie Portman coverage? Want to see Black Swan but starting to be sick of her face.

    • jess

      yessssss. ugh.

  • blah, blah, blah

    So, Natalie Portman in one review “thought I was going to die” in another “incredibly happy” about being pregnant and engaged, if she weren’t Natalie Portman she would just be trailer trash; okay we get it, you want the Oscar, check out Michelle Williams or Naomi Watts, they didn’t lose weight, they aren’t whining, they simply acted

  • Will Forte’s

    black swan on 30 rock a few weeks ago was better

  • tomm

    The Oscars have gotten so boring. They shoudl cut, cut, cut the darn show! No one cars about sound mixing!

    • tipsy

      if Inception is winning that one, I care! :)

  • tomm

    And for God’s sake, do not invite Jen Aniston and Brangelina the same time. Tabloids explode with all the ‘they are in same room’ BS.
