Oscar pre-nomination analysis
The Oscar nominations are soon to be announced for the 79th Academy Awards in L.A. and frankly I think many of them aren't going to be a surprise.
However, I don't mean that in a bad way, it's because there are some of the possible entrants who are very deserving and have already been winning awards all over the place.
So in under half an hour they will be announced, but until then the BBC have provided a really good run down of who should be up for the awards. It's far too big to quote over here, so to see the complete list and their commentary, head over to their pre-nominations review.
Personally I'm going to hold off on my predictions for the winners from the nominations, rather than try and predict all the nominations, and I think we may run our own FIlmstalker Hotdog Awards, as I tried to last year but never had the chance to complete. Would you be interested in a Readers Awards?
