The InSneider's Annual Last-Minute OSCAR Nomination... Things

T-minus 7 hours, so I'd better get these on the record quick! I didn't play The Alternate Game last year so I decided against it this year despite the temptation with such a wide-open field. There are some categories that are really tough to call this year, and the trickiest question of all isn't which films will be nominated, but rather, how many. Thanks to all the bloggers I've enjoyed reading this awards season including but certainly not limited to Jeff Wells, Steve Pond, Kris Tapley, David Poland and MCN's Gurus O' Gold, Scott Feinberg, Sasha Stone, Anne Thompson, Pete Hammond, Nathaniel Rogers, Gregory Ellwood, Guy Lodge, Dave Karger, his worthy successor Anthony Breznican, the fine folks at The Playlist and especially Variety's own Jon Weisman, a relative newcomer to the glamorous beat who handled it with all the class the envious position requires. I'd call this a work-in-progress but fortunately, we've run out of time and these will have to do. Good luck to all the contenders, and I look forward to speaking with some of the nominees tomorrow!
