Best Picture buzz building for 'The Pursuit of Happyness'

Says Tom O'Neil of the LA Times,

Yes, perhaps. Oscar voters do make exceptions for inspiring films about real people who transcend hardship or illness. This one is based upon the life of Chris Gardner, who started out in San Francisco as a homeless dad who became a millionaire stock trader after heeding advice from his world-weary momma who once told him, "You can only depend on yourself. The cavalry ain't coming."
