Oscar Talk: No Surprise

E: Last night, the Directors Guild bestowed this year’s award for feature film direction on Alfonso Cuaron.  Cuaron was the likeliest choice, and his win leaves the Best Picture race as confused as ever.  Does this mean Gravity has a leg up, or that Best Picture and Best Director will split – a true split, where unlike last year’s odd debacle all the frontrunners are nominees.  Does it knock David O. Russell out of competition?  Even if it does, I’m not sure the same can be said of his film.  And 12 Years a Slave is certainly still in the game as well. 

So to sum up, it’s no surprise that Best Picture is still the most surprising category of the year.
