  1. Best Screenplay: Which Writers Will Be Celebrating Next Week?

    Mark Harris

    A couple of months ago, I wrote a Grantland column about the competition for Best Screenplay Oscar nominations in which I suggested that this year, Best Adapted Screenplay would be crammed with contenders and Best Original Screenplay would offer a qu...

    Mark Harris

    We're almost there! Three days until the winners are revealed, after which in no time flat the 2011-12 Oscar season will become an ancient, bitter memory and we can nurse our collective grudges and figure out how everything could have gone so wrong. ...

    Mark Harris

    If I were feeling less generous and more cynical on this holiest of all Oscar-calendar mornings, I might say that to decipher this year's Academy Awards contest, we need only look for inspiration to the GOP presidential race. The Artist is Mitt Romne...

    Mark Harris

    I'd like to thank the Academy for throwing an extra mystery at those of us who treat predicting the Oscars as something between a hobby and a blood sport: This year, we have to figure out not only which movies will be nominated, but how many. After c...

  5. Oscarmetrics: The Impact of Holiday Box Office

    Mark Harris

    The most sentimental and manipulative movie of 2011 stars a great, stoic beast that is something of an enigma to those around him. Lacking words, he seems to have an almost human sense of what people need and expect from him - although they often und...

  6. Oscarmetrics: Critics' Awards Upend the Best Picture Race

    Mark Harris

    What a frenetically busy weekend it was in the handing out of shinies and sparklies and mantel-trinkets to chronically underappreciated movie people, who at other times of the year often have to survive for weeks without winning anything. Critics' gr...

    Mark Harris

    In thinking about the race for Best Picture this week I found myself drifting unhappily back to the 1980s, specifically to a stretch during which the Oscars reacted to an uncertain (i.e., post-Raging Bull) period in high-end American moviemaking by r...

    Mark Harris

    I'm going to begin this edition of Oscarmetrics with a cautionary tale about overreaction, backlash, and misbehavior. Appropriately, it comes from one Best Picture nominee, and it's about another. In the 2005 film Capote, we watch our brilliant, narc...

    Mark Harris

    There may be no Oscar category more maddening to try to handicap than writing. When it comes to editing or sound, at least we all know that we're clueless — film editing, after all, is called "the invisible art" by the very people who do it, a...
