"The Hurt Locker"
PGA nominee: Yes
SAG Ensemble nominee: Yes
Golden Globe Best Picture nominee: Yes
Oscar Status: Potential winner.
Why: A PGA nod was expected for "Locker," especially after Kathryn Bigelow's thriller has raked up one critic's group Best Picture of the Year award after another. While a Globe win is a bit unlikely (we say they give Bigelow the love), if it can snag both the SAG ensemble and the equivalent PGA Award? Watch out. We might have a race on our hands.
