As for the DGA, I suppose Hooper can get that 5th spot (Lee is not missing there), but I still feel like Harvey will get one of his guys in. Even if Hooper is nominated by the DGA though, I'm fairly certain the director's branch won't bite.
And I sincerely doubt all of that is happening, especially Director and Editing (perhaps the most maligned aspects of the film?). Screenplay will be tough, too.
At the moment, I'd say 7-8 nominations makes sense.
I think Erik was exaggerating.
But I don't think the box office will mean that much in the long term. Anyone remember when Benjamin Button opened big, and people began to think it might be the new frontrunner?

Art direction must win the Oscar, if only for that big yellow vagina where

Great. Now who's going to watch Sunday Rose on SAG night??
Given all the close-ups, there must be lot of time and effort put into the management and makeup of teeth for all these actors.
Having finally seen this, I must say that I have a strong feeling if it weren't for the cinematography this film would be the clear frontrunner. Damn those closeups!!!
Honestly, when Hathaway wins the Oscar it will be the most deserving Supporting Actress winner in over a decade, maybe two.
