While we’re talking InContention, they also have the news that Julian Schnabel’s “Miral” has been pushed to March 2011, removing it from the current Oscar race. David Poland Tweeted it first, but Kris Tapley confirmed it. Internet journalism prevails!
Dave Karger takes an early guess at the 10 Best Picture nominees, including titles like “The King’s Speech,” “True Grit” and James L. Brooks’ largely unseen “How Do You Know.”

Pete Hammond goes over the early releases of 2010 that should be remembered come Oscar time.
One Web site reports that “127 Hours” director Danny Boyle could be returning to the “28 Days” franchise. That would be a shame.
