Dave Poland’s latest Oscar column has quite a bit on Black Swan. It’s worth reading the whole column but here’s a brief excerpt.
Swan is no obvious winner. But it’s got its pedal to the floor in a way that most of the other likely nominees do not. It’s not there to make you comfortable. But it’s not some wacky art film that only critics and “downtown” types love either.
The Gurus Of Gold have now also done predictions for the Golden Globes, and with Bening moving to the comedy/musical category, that leaves Natalie well on top for Drama.
