Eat, Pray, Love (RottenTomatoes: 38%, Metacritic: 51). Based on these middling reviews, awards prospects seem limited to a Golden Globe nomination for Julia Roberts at best.
The Expendables (RottenTomatoes: 43%, Metacritic: 46). I would be seriously surprised if this was nominated for anything outside of MTV Movie Awards.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (RottenTomatoes: 80%, Metacritic: 69). Should be a minor hit, but awards prospects are slim regardless. Maybe some tech noms (Visual Effects, Make-up)
Animal Kingdom (RottenTomatoes: 94%, Metacritic: 82). It will probably be too small of a film to gain any serious awards traction, but with reviews like this you never know.
Tales from Earthsea (RottenTomatoes: 41%, Metacritic: 39). The latest from Studio Ghibli (famed for films like Princess Mononoke and the Oscar-nominated Spirited Away) have a rare clunker on their hands. They’ll have to try again if they want another film to get nom’d in the Animated Film category.
