A new T-shirt from Fox Searchlight asks you to publicly declare "I Kept My Eyes Open for 127 Hours."

Is Fox Searchlight daring you to see '127 Hours'?

New campaign proves it isn't giving up on Danny Boyle's acclaimed drama

After the unexpected drama that has circled Danny Boyle's amazing "127 Hours," most studios or distributors could be forgiven for letting the picture's box office run its course.  That is not Fox Searchlight's mantra, however.  The studio that took Boyle's "Slumdog Millionaire" to Oscar heights isn't giving up on "Hours" even if a best picture nod now seems unlikely and the film has only grossed $8.5 million so far in no more than 433 theaters.

Final Golden Globe Nomination Predictions: Tough calls abound

Which film gets snubbed in drama?

It was so much easier back in the day for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.  As recently as 2008 HFPA members could end up nominating up to seven films in the best picture - drama or best picture - musical or comedy categories pretty much making every studio in town happy.  Not anymore.  The organization has put in rules to make such "ties" more difficult which means the chances of a major Hollywood studio becoming upset their contender didn't make the mix are much higher (uh oh).  In 2009, "The Wrestler" didn't make the cut in drama.  Last year, "An Education" was the surprise absentee in the same category.  This year?  Well, there will be numerous almost rans in some very competitive races.

The Broadcast Film Critic's Association announced the nominees for the 2010 Critic's Choice Awards this morning and in something of a surprise, "Black Swan" scored more nominations than expected frontrunner "The Social Network."

Darren Aronofsky's indie thriller was rewarded with 12 nominations including best picture, best actress (Natalie Portman), best director (Aronofsky) and best supporting actress (Mila Kunis).  "The Social Network" scored nine nominations, "The King's Speech" and "True Grit" both received 11 nominations, "Inception" discovered 10 nominations and "The Fighter" knocked out six nods.

Last year's Critic's Choice Awards show is remembered most for the spontaneous kiss between Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep after both "tied" for best actress.  Viewers can only hope for a moment half as entertaining this year.

The 16th Annual Critic's Choice Awards takes place on Friday, Jan 14, 2010 and will air live on VH1 beginning at 9 PM EST/PST.
