Very Early 2011 Oscar Possible Nominations

Some newspaper men/critics/cinema aficionados are starting to list what each considers as probable contenders for the 83rd Academy Awards that will take place on Sunday, February 27, 2011. But as some of you know the Oscar race starts a lot earlier when countries start to announce their chosen submissions to the Best Foreign Language category. As a matter of fact registration for the Bleacher Seats starts in September 13, so we can say that this post inaugurates the Oscar season in the blog.

Our first key date is Tuesday, January 25, 2011 when the nominations will be announced to the world.

Our second key date is October 1st, 2010 that's the deadline for all countries to send in their submissions for Best Foreign film. My next post will start one of my very favorite posts, the slowly build up of all submissions to this Oscar edition.

So let's play around with what some have been publishing as possible Oscar contenders.

From my favorite net writer, Peter Knegt. To check the complete list go here.

Best Picture - Safe Bets: Inception
Best Director - Safe Bets: Chirstopher Nolan for Inception
Best Actress: Safe Bets: Annette Bening in The Kids Are All Right
Best Actor - Safe Bets: None
Best Foreign Language Film - Safe Bets: None

Another of my favorite net writers, Ann Thompson. Check her article here.

Best Actress: possibilities Annette Bening in The Kids Are All Right, Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs, Jennifer Lawrence in Winter's Bone, Lesley Manville in Another Year, Helen Mirren in The Tempest, and Hilary Swank in Conviction.

Last, from Cinematical. Check article here.

Best Actress - Safe Bets: Julianne Moore in The Kids Are All Right and Jennifer Lawrence in Winter's Bone.

Well is just a little teaser to make you all feel that the Oscar season just started. Been following the Best Actress category because some claim that this year Noomi Rapace could get a nomination for her extraordinary, outstanding, magnificent, and all the superlative adjectives you can imagine in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Not all agree that she could qualify, but I still hope she makes it, as the film surely was screened in USA in time for the nominations.

So as of this very moment, the Oscar Party has started!
