Since the Oscar Predictions are complete, I thought I would create theÂ ‘Movies to See Before the 2009 Oscars’ chart. Last year there were 36 different films nominated (not including shorts), which is about typical. So, obviously, the 52 films currently on the list won’t all show up come Oscar season. However, it makes a good guide for the upcoming film season. Two of the films are already released in theatres (Coraline and Watchmen) and many others come out within the next two months.
As of now Nine is way out in front with a nice mix of Big 8 and Technical nomination possibilities. The Best Picture frontrunners make up the rest of the front of the list.
