OSCAR UPDATE IX - January 27, 2008

Ethan Coen and Joel Coen ("No Country for Old Men") won the top prize from the Director's Guild of America last night.  This should set the stage for their victory on Oscar night, and it's a good sign for the film for Best Picture.

"There Will Be Blood" won the top cinematography award from the ASC.

The Screen Actor's Guild weighs in tonight with a live ceremony beginning at 5:20 p.m. CST on TNT and TBS.  Last year, three of the five winners in the film category went on to win Oscars (Whitaker, Mirren, Hudson).  Only Eddie Murphy and "Little Miss Sunshine," which took home the top ensemble prize, missed out.

Here are my very quick SAG predictions:

Best Ensemble:           "Into the Wild"
Best Actor:                  Daniel Day-Lewis, "There Will Be Blood"
Best Actress:               Julie Christie, "Away from Her"
Best Supp. Actor:         Javier Bardem, "No Country for Old Men"
Best Supp. Actress:      Cate Blanchett, "I'm Not There"

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.

    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.
