With late-arriving prestige pictures "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" (Stephen Daldry!) and "War Horse" (sentimental Steven Spielberg!) and the looming shadow of Oscar magnet Meryl Streep playing England's "Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher, the award season, at its outset, sported an air of uncertainty all but absent from last year's front-loaded race. Or it did, until right about the time we handed out candy to a kid dressed up like J. Edgar Hoover (the angry old guy version) and realized that, yes, some spots continue to be up for grabs, but in terms of who'll get the nominations, the major races have already narrowed into focus.

"Shutter Island" Another thriller from Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio. I'm there. (Feb. 19) "Alice in Wonderland" Tim Burton and Lewis Carroll -- such an obvious pairing it's amazing it took this long. Not a remake but a sequel, with an older Alice revisiting the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp, natch) and the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter). (March 5) "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" The Swedish film of the international bestseller is scheduled for an American remake, so, assuming you can read subtitles, catch the terrific original first.
