For all of you that want to start handicapping the Oscar race now, there are two interesting sites to follow from now until February.  The first is the Gurus o'Gold compiled by Movie City News' honcho David Poland.  The other is Buzzmeter, managed by The Envelope's Tom O'Neil. 

Give me a few more weeks, and I'll start analyzing these predictions, but (for what it's worth) I'm a big fan of George Clooney and Tom Wilkinson in "Michael Clayton," Hal Holbrook, Emile Hirsch and Catherine Keener in "Into the Wild," Amy Ryan and Casey Affleck in "Gone Baby Gone," Julie Christie in "Away from Her," Angelina Jolie in "A Mighty Heart," Benicio del Toro and Halle Berry in "The Things We Lost in the Fire," Don Cheadle and Taraji P. Henson in "Talk to Me," Christian Bale in "Rescue Dawn," Andy Griffith in "Waitress," Michael Cera and Jonah Hill in "Superbad," Ben Foster in "3:10 to Yuma," "Zodiac," "Once," "3:10 to Yuma," "The Kite Runner," "Into the Wild," "Eastern Promises," "Gone Baby Gone" and "Michael Clayton."

Still left to see:  "Atonement," "No Country for Old Men," "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead," "Sweeney Todd," "Juno," "The Savages," "Charlie Wilson's War," "American Gangster," "There Will Be Blood," "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," "4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days," "The Great Debaters," "Margot at the Wedding," "Lions for Lambs" and "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford."

  • Industrial hemp pilot program coming soon to Arkansas

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
