A week ago my predictions for Best Picture nominations would have been...Invictus (formerly The Human Factor), Nine, Amelia, Bright Star, and Shutter Island.
Those five remains, but my new prediction for best picture now must contain 10 films...so here's my new list...and the addition to 10 means some "small potentials" like Up and Precious seem very likely.
7. Bright Star
The next 10 on the fringe, with new opportunity thanks to the 10 best picture nominee change...
