This is the brass ring: A gold Statue
With the Academy Award consideration period ending in a month, the major studios are going to be releasing their contenders. 20th century Fox is hoping that "Walk to Line" will be similarly sucessful as last years' Universal release, "Ray". Other films that have oscar hype are "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", "Memoirs of a Geisha" and the new musical "Rent". These big studio oscar hopefulls are going to have a run for their money this year with all the smaller semi-independent films that have been released such as "Chumscrubber" and "The Squid and the Whale". I predict a few surprizes and a few snubs at this years awards unlike the last couple of years save the one where Halle Berry won for "Monster's Ball".
