This tells us that Juno, Michael Clayton, No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, Into the Wild and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly are moving full steam ahead in the Oscar best picture race. Zodiac's inclusion today is a surprise. (Oscar ballots are due Saturday.)
It is highly unusual for three women to be nominated, all for original screenplay. So kudos to Nancy Oliver (Lars and the real Girl), Tamara Jenkins (The Savages) and Diablo Cody (Juno).
