With Toronto, Venice, and Telluride now but a memory, Oscar season has officially kicked off. Most of the major contenders have screened for critics, and as such we have a much better read on what films are headed towards the Kodak. I’m going to update my predictions in all categories this week, starting with The Big One: Best Picture.

My predictions for the visual technical categories (Editing, Cinematography, Art Direction, Visual Effects, and Make-up) are up and completed. Things I’m feeling good about?: lots of Inception, Tree of Life, and The Way Back. There’s still lots of questions about many of these categories. For example, will the Academy wait to honor the Potter series with The Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 or will they jump the gun and start with a few random nominations for Pt. 1? And the pickings for the visual effects category seem surprisingly slim (could that mean that Scott Pilgrim vs the World could score a nomination? If only…)
