The Oscars don’t always get things right. And even when you think they get things right, well, fifty-dozen other people think they got things wrong. But the more time that passes the more I realize the Oscars aren’t as much about “getting things right” as they are getting to watch a bunch of movie stars get together to celebrate the cinema in general.

The Writers Guild of America have announced the 2011 winners for outstanding achievement in writing and they are exactly who you would expect at this late-stage of awards season.

The Orange British Academy Film Awards were handed out tonight at the Royal Opera House in London and cemented The Artist as a virtual lock to take most of the Oscars home when the Academy Awards ceremony comes around two weeks from now.
Is The Artist destined to take home most of the gold statues on Oscar night? French actor Jean Dujardin (The Artist) scored a major win at last night’s 18th Screen Actor Guild Awards, upsetting Hollywood golden boy George Clooney (The Descendants) and giving himself a great shot at winning the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role next month.
And just like that, the Oscar race for Best Picture is already over. With still a month to go before the Academy Awards ceremony, The Artist has virtually locked in the little golden statue for Best Film of the year by winning both the PGA and DGA Awards.

Predicting the Oscars is not really that difficult of a task to do each year. So many of the spots in each category are shoo-ins, with usually only the last spot up for grabs – even if that one.
