After much speculation, Terrence Malick‘s oft-delayed film The Tree of Life has been bought by indie powerhouse Fox Searchlight. This comes after news that it’s originally distributor, Apparition, was suffering from severe financial woes. So while we will definitely see The Tree of Life, it won’t be anytime soon; Searchlight is holding off on a theatrical release until 2011.

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…)
