I predict Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener will be the 'Pollock'-like double act this year (but without the surprise supporting actress win).

oh come on, nothing at all for Match point...if it is even descent the academy will want to award woody allen for making a movie that is any good

Match Point will have to hit big, and even then . . .
