Spielberg’s “War Horse” will win Best Picture … or it won’t – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Surfing around the Web in a post-Thanksgiving haze, I realize that any “War Horse” embargoes surrounding Steven Spielberg’s potential Oscar contender are being laughed at by Oscar bloggers who aren’t giving full on “reviews” but are making their opinions crystal clear.
So, if you want to learn why Spielberg’s “War Horse” might win Best Picture this year, read Pete Hammond’s column on Deadline.
And if you want a dissenting opinion that tries to keep the door open for other Best Picture contenders, read Jeff Wells’ non-review on Hollywood Elsewhere.
Disney/DreamWorks revealed that sneak peeks (featuring a post-screening Q-and-A with Spielberg) will be held this Sunday in 10 select markets around the country. Spielberg will be in New York, but the conversation will be beamed to participating theaters following the 2 p.m. ET screening on Nov. 27.
The rest of the world will have to wait, as “War Horse” will be in theaters on Christmas.
