Best Picture - Drama
Bet on it:
"Up in the AIr"
"A Single Man"
"The Hurt Locker"
"The Lovely Bones"
There's no other way to put it. A number of films are really going to get really screwed in this category. As usual, many of the overall Oscar Best Picture candidates qualify for this Globe category. For a few that are hoping to become true contenders for the big prize, being left out of this category would not look good. The HFPA have had "ties" which lead to six nominees as recently as 2008, but if that occurs this year to make sure "An Education" and "Hurt Locker" both get in it won't help the organization's growing legitimacy.
